Re: The new SimCity...*sigh*

So... EA has released a major update to resolve issues with SimCity. For instance, your trees will now make traffic noises. And lack of taxis in your city? That's no longer a problem!



Man, I'm glad I didn't spend 60 bucks on this piece of crap.

I was seriously considering getting this (even uninstalled Sims3), until I read about the required internet connection. That was the no sale sign for me.

I also considered getting this game, now I'm sort of glad I didn't. I could always fire up SC4, or 3 or 2000. Think I've still got a copy of the original somewhere as well.

From what I heard, I think I'll stick to SC4.

Re: The new SimCity...*sigh*

They're finally adding an offline singleplayer mode to the game. I still have no plans to buy it because most of what I've read about the actual gameplay is... unflattering. But it's still a positive development in my eyes, and hopefully it signals a turning-point in this drive towards online-only games.
