Games So, SimCity has been released - the fifth instalment in this venerable series of fantastic games. However, just as everyone suspected, the game has been completely ruined by the always-online DRM. So much so, in fact, that Amazon has ceased selling the game. Update: and it's only getting worse - EA has suspended all marketing efforts for SimCity, and has asked third parties to do the same. Wow.

This needs to be huge

This needs to be a huge deal. It needs to crash and burn very loudly, very publicly. EA needs this corrective bit of blow back.

The always on DRM is bullshit and ruins the experience. A clear message needs to be sent that this is not tolerated.
