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.

What a shame

I was so excited about the new SimCity as I was a huge fan of the older versions. I was ready to buy the new version immediately but then I read about the small city sizes and now about not just the problems of the always connected model but the fact that you are being forced towards a multiplayer model which personally I don't want to use.

Such a shame.

I am may still be tempted to give it a shot if they iron out some of the server bugs.
