The new SimCity...*sigh*

I swear there was a SimCity thread here somewhere but I can't seem to find it.

Anyway, yeah, THAT went well.

I had heard that the new city sizes were small. I didn't realize just how small until watching this Quick Look:

Each of the three cities in the region (map) can be controlled by different players or a single player can create multiple cities within a region. The actual cities themselves can barely be called cities considering the total land area. It also sounds like the plots each city can be built on are fixed and can't be terraformed which is another WTF design decision.

Add to that the fact that you cannot save in a single player game (huh??) and the fact that you need an internet connection and EA's servers to be up to play the game and that pretty much guarantees I won't buy this pile of crap. I was waiting to see if EA could return to form and release something better than the Cities XL games but they appear to have failed on all fronts.

Fuck you EA for taking a steaming dump all yet over another game.
