I would like to thank EA too, I really enjoy the new Sim City. I bought it pretty randomly and casually since it's been a while since I played a similar game, and damn, I went 6 hours straight after the first fire up!

 

There's quite a few bugs to be squashed but the game is extremely fun and deep, only thing I really dont like is the emphasis on the vertical progression of your city, I'd really like the areas where you can build a city to be bigger, not neccessary much, but at least a bit.

The depth is the thing that is missing IMO. Read this:

http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/posts/list/9362695.page

 

Besides never having to put a single commercial or industrial zone down, the simulation itself is screwed in like 50 other ways. You could read about it in their forums or go here:

http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/tag/simcity/

 

It's a complete mess. And not because of the online only thing.

SWTOR is the greatest mmo ever!

OP, you can always boycott the companies that piss you off with crap business practices by not buying anything from them anymore  and actually be happy with the ones that actually care about their games and the players.

 

Not surprised that Simcity was a mess. We have witnessed for years what evil EA can do to games and other companies alike.

SimCity is the first EA game I've purchased since I swore them off after Mass Effect 3. And you know what? Despite the flaws & controversey, it's actually pretty fun! In fact, I'd say its the best SimCity game since SimCity 2000.

So thank you EA / Maxis for providing me with a fun game which has already sucked away more hours of my life than I care to admit. Now please fix the bugs so I can enjoy it even more.

I'm waiting for complaints about the auto-generated billboards that show ads in your city. It's bound to happen pretty soon :)

How could EA pass up THAT revenue stream?

You don't think it's a coincidence that Publishers like EA & Activision have dramatically increased revenue with the more mainstream acceptance and usage of pre-orders do you?  These companies feed off of individuals like yourself that buy games the day of release, or what's worse pre-order games, before there are any solid reviews of those games.

Stop being a sheep, wait a week or two after release, at LEAST, before you buy a game.  The problem is the gaming genre is filled with sheep just like you.

EA's been killing my hope in gaming for years.  I've been saying they are the worst publisher out there, for so long.  Much worse than Activision, SoE, they're not just bad, they're a dangerously powerful blight on the entire industry.

 

The fact that they occassionally back a winner is neither here nor there.

When I want a single-player story, I'll play a single-player game. When I play an MMO, I want a massively multiplayer world.

2014 Watch List: World of Warships, ArcheAge

Geez, it was a terrible launch, even the worst launch in online gaming history (IMHO). So, you create an account on their forums, heap scorn and mockery on their heads, then get on with your life.

All this wailing and gnashing of teeth seems a little over-wrought.

It's a complete mess. And not because of the online only thing.

What I mean by depth is you are screwed every time you just start to slam buildings into your town, either by chemical fires, pollution, crap, nuclear disaster, wrong type of work force or whatever. You have to plan stuff to make it run smooth and make serious profits to advance.

 

That's my experience, if I would actively seek flaws and bugs I would find them in tons, but I dont, and I'm happy with the game (if we forgot about the traffic jams and authority trains >_>) since I'm having great time with it. I dont feel like playing a complete mess, when I get that feeling I usually stop playing.

 

Though I understand people getting mad at the DRM, and many things that currently does not work in the game as intented, I guess I'm just having a different approach since I havent got mad at the game not once.

Really ignorant if you think Blizzard's WOW is the only one out there.
There are MUCH better ones Live, with better ocntent and better graphics.

But yeah, if you lemming after the massess.....I can understand that you think the MMO world is all about elves and orcs playing in China.

EA has always sucked and Blizzard has sucked for a long time now, ever since they soldout, lot of other big companies tend to follow the same trend as these two and suck as well but theres still plenty of other people out there still putting out great games.

One of the very few advantages of getting old and crotchety is seeing how true it is that nothing ever really changes. Back in the day it was annoying twits in record stores cornering anyone they could to tell them that their favorite band had "Sold out" the second more than three people had actually heard of them. Now it's annoying little twits going on about, not how fun or not a game is, but how some evil company has "ruined" gaming by doing things in a way they didn't like.

Same shit, different day.

What "HOPE" in gaming was there to lose? It's a hobby, not a religion, for God's sake (pun intended). The amount of lost perspective people have over this stuff is just stunning. EA the most "evil" company around? Do you have even the vaguest clue what "evil" means? Hint: It goes a bit beyond a bunch of whiny basement dwellers being butthurt over having to actually use their internet connections for something besides pr0n.

Manipulate people into giving you their life's savings and then spending it on a new Bentley instead of investing it like you said you would?

Evil, albeit a very long ways from being the worst evil the world has ever seen.

Creating an entertainment product, being perfectly up front with the requirements needed to run it, and then selling it?

Not even in Evil's general neighborhood.

Here's the only "HOPE" any sane person should have in gaming: That there are and will continue to be games out there that you, as an individual, find fun to play.

If you've lost that hope, well that's unfortunate, but it sure the hell isn't EA or Blizzard's fault.

Sadly EA/Maxis indeed did screw up SimCity. The old ones were AWESOME, but this new one sucks big time. I don't really mind the 24/7 DRM since I only play at home, I just fear the end-of-life cycle and not being able to play anymore IF I want to.

It's just that the actual game just sucks. Gameplay is nowhere near the level of the old SimCity games. Regional (online) game-play just isn't gonna happen (remember CitiesXL as online game om 2008?). Saved cities dissapearing or not being able to load, amazing bugs in the engine when it comes to handling traffic and population growth and more such things.

Because of SimCity I also purchased Anno 2070 last Friday and I have to say that this game is more sim city than SimCity is...

I've seen that title being mentioned many times. Is a better promo even possible? :p Due to the recent hubbub surrounding SC.

I'm curious and checking out more info about Anno 2070.

And lol, Steam sale :')
