I played sim city up till 3. This is unaccetable for gamers who is a fan of sim city.

Screw EA and its DRM. You need to boycott EA and its DRM games sent a message to EA that single player games with online drm is unacceptable. Fight the power. Tell yoyr friends not to buy any EA games with online DRM.

Have it boxed in pre-order and it'll be available tomorrow (EU resident), and with the whole 24/7 online DRM crap I'm thinking to tell the store I'm not gonna pick it up (haven't paid for it yet). D3 has already shown what 24/7 online DRM does, Eidos gave it a go and their server got hacked and lots of players were unable ot play and more over, A couple of EA games that I have are screwed at times when I can't connect to their server to verify the DRM of the DLC. FUCK EA and their DRM!

Got it yesterday and love playing it so far.  Maxis stepped up and published the original Simcity on PC when no one else would.  They didn't make very good decisions after that, and EA stepped in and saved them.  I think Maxis does good work and don't mind supporting them, especially when I get a great product for my money.

Sorry, I love the game. I have accepted why DRMs are out there, good or bad, and know that I have to find something else to do when I'm offline. But I guess if that doesn't sit well with you, you can just not buy it to show your anger.

Nope, game is awesome.

Day 1 online issues are expected (at least from someone who plays a lot of MMOs) and the game is well worth the DRM.

Sorry OP, enjoy your protest while the rest of us enjoy a great game.

I've probably been lurking for way, way too long.

yeah seriously if people were not stealing so many games you wouldnt have DRM to begin with. I plan to buy this game regardless and I hate EA , but I have enjoyed all the sim cities . Hell even my technology class way back in middle school allowed us to play the orginal sim city on those old computers in school so to me this franchaise has a history worth it to me.

You want to protest , go protest all the thieving websites like pirate bay and the rest of those sites that make it so game companies cannot make any money because of all the thieves in this world that are to cheap to spend money or get a job so they can afford to buy games, music, and movies.

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

3/06/13 12:38:26 PM#8

Please just stop.  How about put your crusade to good use fighting something really worth while.


I intend to pick up the game because it looks fun as hell.

Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

I know it would be a good and fun game worth the money just seeing the previews and betas.

I bought every SimCity title (except the GameBoy thing) and several other "Sim" title.

But sorry no DRM for "offline games" in my house! [mod edit]

I personally feel that once a game offers a live service, it's not an "offline" game. 


SimCity is a better game for the online connection, whether you're playing co-op or not. 

In my opinion, the best SimCity ever; one of the best games I've ever played,hands down.

Gladly I don't have to boycott it since the game is complete unappealing to me due to how small the cities are. I play city building games to make good looking cities that still manage to be somewhat efficient, but for that I need space, which seems to be the lacking part in SC5. 

And yes, I am aware they said they want to icnrease the size at some point. Thing is we have no idea when that point will happen nor how much it will cost, because I'm pretty sure it won't be free update, more likely something akin to one of hundreads of Sims "expansions" that cost normal retail prices. 

Maybe by that time the game will be heavily disocunted and bundled with DLC and probably the servers will be stable too... then I can consider buying it, not a day sooner.

I'm not a fan of DRM and I might buy the game. But lets get some facts straight first. DRM can cause more troubles then not. Depending on how the company institues it, I've seen several people lose games to DRM. How so? When you can't reinstall a game because it's DRM protected and it comes up with a duplicate license key. That right there is the most common reason why a lot of people hate DRM. And for those hating on sites like piratebay and isohunt, quit being a fool. These people are not the reason DRM was instituted. Think I'm wrong, go have a look for yourself on google search. All these sites do is host links. You want to blame anyone, blame yourself or your next door neighbor or whoever else is distributing the software without a license. Go blame those fools who worked with Demonoid on cracking software. Places like piratebay actually do distribute legal software, music and videos. They just don't have a say so n what else pop's up from there links. Why you ask? Freedom of use, plain and simple. So do us all a favor, either buy it or not. But there is no need to start a crusade.

I read that the cities were reduced for the sake of balance. Since your cities are interacting with other cities, having a large city would be "imba" against small cities. SimCity? More like SimCity:MMO.

I was skeptical when they first announced the game. I'm a big fan of Maxis, but the always-on DRM turned me off. SimCity was all about city building, making it efficient and then destroying it all with one button -- be it a tornado, fire outbreak, meteor strike, monster invasion.

I'll rue the day when all video games will have online connection as mandatory requirement. Some games you enjoy by yourself, like reading a book on a cozy chair, while sipping coffee or hot cocoa. Some games you enjoy with others, like a movie night out.

Boycotts are pointless. How about I just don't buy it. Ever.

You're not alone. A lot of people have the same attitude and EA is very aware of that.

There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein
