Check twice when crossing the U.S. border

Laws can be a real nuisance today. Especially the USA make it almost impossible
NOT to break any law. Even if you don’t know it for sure, you run risk into

Almost “free” speech…

Unbelievable but true. But it seems as if free speech in the USA gets limited
more and more. As if the USA wouldn’t have enough laws, there’s always

On the GDC 2012 EA and Maxis have shown a new version of SimCity. Simcity 4
is the newest version of the game since 2004, offering a sort-of-isometric view
