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.

I didn't buy it simply because of the crappy city size. But I must admit, this online only thing is a real problem. What happens when EA decides they no longer want to support those servers? Looks to me like the people who bought this game are out their money. Whereas those with previous SimCity titles will be able to play their favorite games for years to come.
