    You do realize this alone can place you on fringe consumer group and hence whatever doesn't float your boat will probably be of no consequence for rest of us? ;)

    Sometimes sure. Some other times, not really. I recall paying high price for Super Famicom games... which had about 1 ~ 2 hours of playtime if I didn't suck at gaming as much as I did back then.

    Can't agree more. I have a lot of great older games I still love and play from time to time and this development to throw away games with expiring date is truly troubling.

    What's next? Music becoming streaming only so that an Internet connection is required to listen to music and when they turn off servers after a few years you can't listen to older songs anymore?

    Was just gonna post that article. What a (so far) broken game. Ha! and people wanted to unlock it early! Will wait 6 months before I play again.

    GameTrailer's gave SimCity an 8.0: http://www.gametrailers.com/reviews/vfnz03/simcity-review

    I haven't watched the review yet as I don't have audio on the PC I'm currently using so I don't know if they mention online DRM issues or not. However, I personally would prefer to see professional reviewers downmarking games that use online DRM, especially those that have tons of issues at launch. After all, you cannot review a game based on promises that those issues will be fixed.

    I have to say that I was looking forward to this game, having not played a SimCity since my Amiga days, but the online DRM, the small size of the plots and the fact that it relies heavily on multiplayer has all but put me off buying it. Oh well, at least I save some cash. I guess. :(

    Anyone know how to get downsampling working with this? Loving the game(connection issues aside), but those jaggies are driving me nuts!

    They also gave Spore 8/10. Nuff said.
    Who seriously reads "game journalist" reviews these days?
    You have a mind of your own, use it.

    On another note, if anyone wants to join my 7 city 1 great work (to be an international airport) region, i'd love to have you. Got alot of region wide city hall addons complete.
    West EU 1

    Add Baleurion ingame (origin username), i'll invite you.


    Also, great visual guides to the different game systems and how they now work.

    Just because you were one of the lucky ones to get everything working, doesn't mean you should keep parading on how awsome the game is and how errorless it is for you.

    That's like going about saying, I don't know what you guys are bitching about, the brakes on my prius works fine. when there is a clear issue for the majority of people.

    is that a joke? although I caught myself going into a game last night, thinking I'll just make a game, set up a town and then bedtime. bedtime ended up being 2 hours later haha

    I made a game with 7 towns called Guru3D region (or something like that, lemme check). feel free to join me.

    EDIT: Guru3D tralaland my region is called.
