The Average Gamer

This Week on TAG: 27th Jan 2013

SimCity Vid Capture

Hooray, the snow’s cleared up here in London and the temperature is almost back into double digits again. I’m still holed up at home, having spent most of my weekend playing the SimCity beta. It’s goooooood. The beta map is a bit small and the whole thing is very limited but there’s still so much to do. According to the leaderboards, at least one person has managed to build up a population of 180,000 people in the single hour session we get during the beta. I’ve managed… 11,000. Must try harder.

Here’s what happened this week on The Average Gamer.
