Re: The new SimCity...*sigh*

Well seeing as they are giving everybody who reqisters this game before the 26th of this month one of those free games, i took a chance and managed to the the game for £31 online, i picked dead space 3, so basically £15.50 a game, not to bad at all.

Dont mind taking a chance on it at those prices. lol

Actually, you'd be surprised to know that quite a lot of people don't own every game ever released.

Re: The new SimCity...*sigh*

I can't say any of those games interest me in the slightest. (Other than SimCity 4 Deluxe, of course, but I already have that.) This is like getting food at a fast-food restaurant and them making up for the 30-minute wait time without giving you any food by giving you a coupon for a free Happy Meal or a Jr.-Sized McFlurry or something. It's a "Gee... thanks, I guess."

Re: The new SimCity...*sigh*

Not a bad game actually, managed to get up to just over 100.000 before everything ground to halt because of traffic congestion, which lead to rubbish stacking up because the bin motors could not collect it, which lead to people getting sick from all that uncollected rubbish, which lead to a big lizard appearing from nowhere and hammering the final nail into my coffin by destroying my water plant, and the quick into the red budget downfall was upon me in no time. lol

This must be what happened to all those California cities that went bankrupt.

Re: The new SimCity...*sigh*

Something I just thought about. Since it's always online and connected to everyone else, is it possible to reload in a situation like that or do you just have to soldier on?

Re: The new SimCity...*sigh*

As far as i know there is no way to go back to a previous time in the cities build.

But you can delete the entire city and restart, something i have done four times now. lol

Re: The new SimCity...*sigh*

While I suppose I should get into the habit of deleting cities as a courtesy (were I to buy the game, probably in a sale), my typical pattern is to ignore the city and start a new one, but reserve the option of returning if I want to salvage the situation.

It's a shame I can't just roll it back, though. Usually I play through with disasters but sometimes I really want to do something else and don't feel like getting set back.

I got Battlefield 3, it is much more enjoyable than Scamcity and I've played it more often than I ever played Scamcity.
