The day Mariina Hallikainen received a communique detailing first day sales stats for Cities: Skylines, she was very happy.

The numbers were wildly ahead of all projections. She decided to splurge on a decadent and indulgent treat.

She ordered a strawberry cream cake.

It's amazing that a small team from Finland managed to build the SimCity EA could not. Cities: Skylines is completely and utterly worth it, and the best city builder currently available, by a huge margin.

On a related note, an artist who used to work on SimCity for Maxis/EA is currently earning a decent buck through donations because he's designing a lot of additional buildings for Cities: Skyines and releasing them to the community for free. Amazing.

eGPUs (graphics card via Thunderbolt) work, but are a bit hackish, because nobody sells a finished solution for it.

I think it's a very worthy way to boost the graphics for any Thunderbolt capable Macbook Air or Macbook Pro. I run a GTX970 on my Macbook Pro and it works very well.
