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.

There's really no other way to put it. Hopefully everyone else stops selling the game as well.

With Blizzard and EA trying to wring all the juices out of original content there is really no reason to buy games like this. I have packed my xbox away and fully embraced Desura/Steam on my PC's.
