Games "Why has the SimCity story gone away? It's a good question. And the answer for it reveals much about how both the games industry, and the games journalism industry, work." Telling - not just for the game journalism, but all of it. As a sidenote, you can always rely on Rock Paper Shotgun to bring the best gaming news. Under-appreciated gem of online news reporting.

Wow, both you and the other commenter miss the whole point here: companies shouldn't screw you over. Period. It's not about the product itself, it's about the whole premise of companies doing shit deliberately and still getting away with it. But no, both of you insist on just seeing SimCity, not the big picture.


Well you obviously didn't read my comment did you? No they shouldn't screw you over. But I disagree that there was any screwing over tbh and I also don't expect a business to overly care unless they are making money ... good if they do ... if they don't it is upto you as the consumer to be wise to it.

It not like you didn't get SimCity that you paid for. There were server problems; It is shitty, but I've been on plenty of deployments that have gone tits-up when the switch to live was done.

Me and you have a very different ideas about "being screwed over". It not like they I dunno ... gave everybody a free game afterwards ... oh wait they did.

Sorry when did anyone get ripped off. I would love to know?

If you don't like the possibility of paying for a turd when it comes to entertainment, it's probably best to wait until someone else has tried it out and I dunno listen to see if they thought it was any good ... or read a review?
