Wow, that's kind of sad. On the other hand, I guess I thought they had already been absorbed a while back o_0
I remember that Maxis logo from back in the 90's, when I was playing Sim City 2000 at my cousin's house. My favorite memory is trying to run a bridge out to an island, and then connect it to another part of the mainland... but something with the island's slopes made it really hard to get the roads to go in the right direction... and in frustration we ended up with an island entirely covered by roads... which we dubbed Road Island. Pun intended, though it was much funnier when I was 13.
