Default Cities XL

This game looks like it could be fun. It's a MMO Sim City type game. You build your city and trade with people around you irl. depending where you build your city (cold, desert, temperate or hot climate) you can build a different type of city (snow park, beach city) and you'll need different types of resources to make your city work. Trade your surplus with neighbors. has anyone played the beta?

Yeah, I saw this a little bit ago and it seemed interesting and like it had some promise. But I don't really buy games anymore without trying a demo first, and those are pretty rare for MMO's. Maybe they'll release one for offline mode to let people get a feel for it.

There is a demo of it BTW. Servers were full when I tried it though so I uninstalled it.
