Games "To see anyone defending EA and Maxis for the state of SimCity, even were it in perfect working order on launch, depresses me to my core. This self-flagellation-as-skincare notion, where gamers loudly and proudly defend the destruction of their own rights as consumers, is an Orwellian perversity. That it might be considered in any way controversial to call them out on their crap, to point out that no, always-on DRM is not an advantage to anyone, is bewildering. It's a sign of just how far the gaming world has fallen into the rabbit hole of the publisher's burrowing." As usual, RPS hits the nail on the head so hard it shoots through the board.

No problem. Yeah I pledged too.

I think the best campaign against SimCity's latest release (and other upcoming games that are making it so us as consumers never truly own the game and can play it at our leisure) would be supporting Civitas and making sure they meet their goal. Someone needs to start that campaign.
