    Thanks for that!
    I thought I'd find it at €5 but this time it really reflected currency change and I got it for €2.50 :)

    Also on the SC4 bandwagon. Even though I have a hard copy of the game I'd rather have it with Steam.. Man I hope Maxis is working on a SC5, these games are so great.

    I like SC 3000 the best out of the series. But I definitely picked up SC4 for the 5 bucks today! :)

    Is Sim City 4 worth a good game, worth $5? I don't think I've played one since Sim City 2000...

    If I remeber rightly there are many issues with steams simcity4 deluxe. I bought it when it went on sale a few months ago and it would not run longer than 10minutes before crashing. So I went and bought XLCities.

    Just a heads up, though there might have been some kind of patch or something by now.

    yup ever since I discovered the 9.99 rack at stores i always had a hard time buyign games at full price. Now with steam you don't even have to wait as long for it to hit the 9.99 rack and most of the time can pick them up for much less than 10$

    Best thing about it is, it's the only platform where you get to increase the graphics quality of a game as you upgrade your system.

    I even tend to grab titles that are ridiculously taxing on a system purely because they are at the right price and I know eventually I will max them out.

    i liked it. it was simpler, but not dumbed-down too much.
    the story is where it's at. they removed planet driving so that sucks.

    i got it on xbox, and was thinking of getting pc - to continue my me1 save -
    i just don't have the time. still, i recommend the game for sure.
