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'm done

I am done with EA. I am going to ship every EA title I have back to them. State I am done with your company's disgusting lack of ethics. Untrusting nature of your paying customers. I want nothing to do with you. If you try to mail me anything, I will mark it return to sender.

I will implore others to do the same.
Everyone needs to stop playing SimCity. Even if you can't return it, just stop playing. I know it hurts because I really wanted to play it myself but long as it is an EA property I refuse to do anything with it.

I had already contacted the media (all of the major news outlets in NYC) as this needs to be spoken about on the air. EA needs to be embarrassed more than the almost 3,000 one star ratings. Kip needs to be publicly fired!
