SimCity

The new SimCity game comes out tomorrow.

Anyone getting it? The videos I've seen have looked incredible.

For some good news though, you don't really need a high-end system to run it.

I'm not a PC gamer, so I'm not really familiar with Steam. But in order to run this SimCity you have to have an internet connection and be logged into or have Origin running. I haven't researched it very much though. I'm not ready to drop $59 on a SimCity game.

It is exactly EA's version of steam.

I use both liberally. Steam has way more games, and a much better interface, but overall they fulfill the same function.

This has been awful so far. The game is fantastic but I can only log in to one server in Europe. The city I created is now STUCK on that server. I was able to switch but you have to go through the tutorial on EVERY server you connect to. On top of that if it bugs out you effectively can't use that server at all.

A friend and I played musical servers and between not being able to connect and the bugs from the tutorial, and we could not join a server and play in the same region in-game. This launch has been a travesty. You launch a major title that people have been waiting for FOR YEARS and you only have 4 US servers available. FOUR!?!?

This is the last time I will buy a single player game that requires a dedicated internet connection. I've learned my lesson with Diablo 3 and now this. Done. I'm also done with EA.

I would like to say I learned my lesson with Diablo 3 which I paid $60 for and probably put about 15 hours into before I became horribly bored with it but I did play the beta of he new SimCity and I did have it on preorder through newegg. Then the day of release, newegg canceled my preorder because they were out of stock so I missed out on any other preorder deals I could have taken advantage of like the $20 amazon credit. The whole preorder situation along with the stories coming out about waiting in 30 minute queues to play or having your city corrupt have totally soured it for me now.

I'm not defending EA in the slightest, having the online DRM shit that you must use in order to play if a joke. But it is what it is. I can see their view on the servers though.

Why have 10 servers at launch, it's a waste of money. A week from today, those servers won't ever be close to getting bombarded like they currently are. It only sucks now because the game just launch, give it a few days and this will be a distant memory.

Still a stupid system, but all the bitching about wait times is really pointless.

Or they could have built it so a server farm(10+) appears as one US server. Make it so you could add and remove servers without loss of data. When the demand dies a bit remove some servers and add them to the launch of the next big game.

Alright, I'm definitely waiting for a pirated copy now. I am hoping SKIDROW comes out with one that lets you fake being online, and just lets you play alone or whatever. Is there a fake origin out there floating around? I know there is a fake steam that lets you play cracked steam games with others that have cracked games too.
