    That happens because when you go through a doorway, it signals to your mind the beginning of a new episode. Your mind likes to discretize events so it doesn't get overwhelmed with a constant stream of information, and stepping through a door into another room often signals the end of one episode and the beginning of another to your subconscious. That's why you forget things like that sometimes, because your mind is kind of starting fresh.

My guess is that the new Sim City will be shit, so I'm not getting that.

    Now to load in the mods I have on my previous computer, maybe even export the better region I have as well... And hope it actually works on my computer, with a newer OS. Shouldn't be a problem tho.
    Yeah, Maxis pretty much sucks now that it's a puppet of EA. Spore was the most disappointing thing since Star Wars Episode 1.
    That's nice.

    Then why did Spore get a lot of praise unlike Episode 1?

    True, but the same can be said about Criterion, Westwood and Bioware (and probably others, but that's what I've got now).

    Have you even played the game? Because then you would understand. I have, and it was very disappointing, the potential was extremely big, but EA shat all over it, methinks.

    That said, Sim City IV is pretty horrible to actually manage to get a city working financially. It's extremely punishing at your every move, balancing the budget. So yeah, I'll probably be loading in the buildings that give you minus 4 billion in expenses just to build the city I want to. That's really what I want. Oh, and some of the transport buildings as well, seeing how trying to make a working transport system in a bug city is like gouging your eyes out with a spoon.

    All that aside, it's still loads of fun when I get that massive region with many cities with loads of people in them.

    I've seen the gamplay and X-Play's review of it, which they gave it a 5/5, so I don't see how is that a disappointment.

    And of course my favorite video game company of all time, Rare. Though that was Microsoft, not EA.
    That's nice.

    Allow me to elaborate a bit about why Spore was a disappointment, if you will.

    Huh, I thought that was EA as well, but not that it matters much though. Can't say I can recall playing many of their games.

    I'm still pissed at Lucasart for rushing KOTOR II.

    In other words, an original IP that failed to be in the same ranks as their other popular franchise: The Sims. But then again, the same can be said to the early Pokemon games because this is the first installment, so the sequels will no doubt fix the flaws.

    Yeah, that was Microsoft. They pretty much just wanted Rare for the Banjo-Kazooie rights. When they were with Nintendo, they made some of the greatest games of all time, such as Donkey Kong Country, Diddy Kong Racing (so much better than Mario Kart in every way), Banjo-Kazooie, and Goldeneye.

    Now they just kind of suck. Banjo-Kazooie Nuts and Bolts was pretty miserable. Though I do have to say, Viva Pinata was surprisingly good.
    That's nice.

    I'm mad at Square Enix for not making a TWEWY sequel yet.
