As a kid I was one of the few that wasn't allowed to own a gaming console, so instead I played PC games. The first game to really draw me into console gaming was Oddworld, which my Uncle happened to own.
Upon first picking up the game controller, I thought the game was God's gift to man kind. So any news of an upcoming game always keeps me on the edge of my seat. According to Jeff Braun the Maxis co-founder, a new game is in the works. It will feature a revolutionary 3-D animation system.
It will also have a “cinematic quality on a '1 to 1 scale' to the computer-generated motion pictures”. Unfortunately it will still be a while before we will get to test it out, since Braun also mentions that it could be years away from being sold.
