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.

They made an MMOCBG (that's massively multiplayer online city building game) so no wonder. They do not say that on the box, though.

They screwed it up massively. People that preordered were reporting that their games would not unlock, while people that bought the game at launch got in immediately. So EA are to blame for every single bit. But it seems that they are doing a Blizzard here, again. The just like WoW, SimCity is a big investment. But at least you don't have to pay each month... Though I'm pretty sure they would love to introduce that "feature".
