I know this is an old drum of mine, but was it really necessary for them to omit the version number at the end of the title? Why has this been so popular lately for all kinds of franchises?

I mean, what does it ever accomplish? Are they trying to appeal to some false sense of nostalgia? All it does is give home librarians a headache in the future and confuse the Steam game list.

Better that than fat. ;P

Also, the SimCity games would be better if you could get kicked out of office for being a retard. At least Tropico has an excuse for you to stay in power.

You really need to find more important things to worry about.

First Sim City? PS1? lol

You don't remember that. Maybe SNES, but not PS1 - Sim City 2000 was on PS1.

I used to play it on my PC in CGA, that and Populous and Prince of Persia...

Anyone pick this game up?  I ended up buying despite the issues and always on DRM.

No. If I want to go play a Sim City, I'll reinstall 4. The new one has too many things going on that I hate. The only lure for me are the curved roads and fancy interchanges.

If only it allowed you to build across the entire landscape provided rather than just small parcels of it, EA would have gold on their hands. But alas...

I think they were going with a multiplier version of Simcity and thats why cities are so small.  Its different for sure.  I haven't decided yet if I like it or not.  I have Simcity 4 installed and have been playing it as well.  I actually like the simplified utilities.

I can tell by the youtube videos alone that I don't like it. From a few of the let's plays I've skimmed, the constraints are quite limiting.

Their stubborn stance on the multiplayer issue is off-putting. Want to build a city solo and not have someone mess around with your bus stops? You're gonna have a bad time.

Fuck off, EA/Maxis.

I'm pretty sure I saw that in gameplay vids where people were going from area to area finding things to adjust. Regardless, their "company is always right" stance on the game is extremely off-putting.

No one says that the company is always right.  I think they were trying something new and at the same time trying to "fight" piracy in their own way.  They fucked up with the launcher and promising people this and that and not delivering, but I still enjoy the game.  I also enjoy Simcity 4.

That is very tolerant of you, considering their elitist stance on the whole forced-online anti-piracy countermeasures that "aren't really anti-piracy countermeasures but a way to make people have a good time because if we gave this game an offline mode (which is technologically impossible) they wouldn't have a good time at all, end-of-story, and there's no way we're ever going to change based on demand." I'd rather play 4.

I saw they released a Nissan leaf DLC.  An electric gas station with a giant advertisement painted on the parking lot.  Classy!

Cant wait for them to release the subway dlc.  Or the highway dlc.  What about a dlc that will fix the fucking game first?  oh well
