Celebrity SimCity: Day 3 - Everyone poops

Disasters! Aliens! Sewage!

We took a brief hiatus while repair crews worked on the NA West 1 (giving us time to release a 3-page document outlining our criticisms ), but we've finally returned to PCG County . Despite unusually frequent seismic disasters and more than one sewage debacle, the region lives on: Notchtopia continues to grow, Belmonte Carlo is a playground for the rich, Hepatitis Seas is turning yellowish, and Executive Mayor Evan Lahti has now founded Texas II: Origins— this time, it's personoil.

The county hopes for the best—perhaps a Flight of the Navigator-style adventure—and has temporarily assumed governance over his city. Meanwhile, Mayor Chris Kluwe has been missing since last week.

Notchtopia's Clean Air Initiative

A stunning transformation: in a mere weekend, Mayor Notch has grown his small town into a mid-sized city with an accredited university. But what has fueled its growth?
