    IIRC this was one of the game franchises that some yahoo contributor said should let die in an article some weeks ago.

    idiots... (Yahoo I mean...)

    Meanwhile, we'll have Call of Duty Modern Warfare MCCXXVII by the time this gets released. Now there's a franchise they should let die.

    The story is that Maxis set out to develop the GlassBox engine as the platform for all their upcoming games. After a "much while" later they decided to go with SimCity, although they have been namedropping doing SimTown, SimCopter, and SimAnt as well.

    Here is the GDC video of how the engine works:

    I never thought I would say this, but the constant noise of the camera shutter in the background is annoying. ;)
