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.

The game hasn't been ruined; in fact, if you wait a few weeks, it'll probably work just fine.

Well, yes - because the online requirement means it can't actually be played under many of the circumstances where I'd like to play a game like that. Say, while sitting on a 12 hour flight, or while sitting on the bus/train to work...
