Yeah, I more or less stopped buying PC games about a decade ago, playing mostly console games. I make an exception every once in a while for something that I think is worth the hassle.Alvarin wrote:This could also go to "Pissed megathread".

Same here, except I haven't made an exception since 2006 or so. Finding out that software I've purchased is useless as anything but a coaster unless I spend big bucks upgrading my PC was pretty disheartening. I still waste tons of time playing stupid flash games on Kongregate, though, so there is that.Eth wrote:Yeah, I more or less stopped buying PC games about a decade ago, playing mostly console games.

Do yourself a favor and avoid this game like the plague. The launch was so horribly botched, and the released game broken, and EA so unapologetic about the whole thing being due to their refusal to diable their always-on-internet DRM, that NOBODY should buy this game. If you do get it, expect it not to work most of the time (though apparently that's been improving as frustrated users quit, so their server load has been going down). What's worse, unless reviewers have been updating their initial reviews after launch, none of this will be reflected, since pre-release reviews were conducted in an isolated bubble with few enough people that the load issues experienced at launch would never come up.RTyp06 wrote:So I take it you will not be purchasing EA Games' Sim City 5? I'm thinking about it but have been hearing some dissapointing reviews of the product.
The Penny Arcade Report has been covering this extensively for the past few weeks, and doing a damn fine job of it to boot.
