Think there's a chance that in another life you might've been a ruthless dictator?  If you answered yes than Tropico 3 might just be the game for you.  In Tropico you take on the role of 'El Presidente', the dictator of a banana republic (no, not the store) in the Caribbean during the Cold War.  You have total control of every facet of island life giving you the power to become the unmerciful tyrant you've always dreamed you would be, or the boring humanitarian who actually cares (can you guess which one I would choose?).  Tropico 3 will release on the PC and Xbox 360 on October 16, but if you're not a terribly patient person the demo will be available for the PC on September 7.
