HMS_Blinkin: Egoy3k: I'm so torn with this game, every fiber of my being tells me not to buy it but every picture of the game makes me want to buy it. It's a new SimCity, but EA, new SimCity, but EA.I'm the same way. I especially like the "bottom-up" simulation where each sim has goals that he/she is trying to accomplish, which really adds some nice authenticity to the game. For the record, I could actually learn to live with limited town sizes, but it's the EA "always online" thing that is the biggest dealbreaker for me. In no way do I want to buy a game that I might not be able to play in some number of years./if you "buy" something, it's yours forever, not until the manufacturer decides it's done with the product.//if you can own a car that's no longer being actively produced, you should be able to own a game without the OEM's servers.
crab66: City size is way too small.Always online DRM is annoying.Incoming mountain of DLC will be irritating.
Celerian: PanicMan: Celerian: YOU CAN'T CUT BACK ON FUNDING! YOU WILL REGRET THIS!That guy made that game perfect. Seriously.fark that guy. I could easily cut Fire, Police, Education, Healthcare down to really low levels and everyone was always, "Oh, that's cool. We have enough. We're doing pretty good." You take away even a little bit from the transportation budget, even if you have one 1X1 square of road and he flips his shiat."POTHOLES WILL BE HAD! ROADSIGNS WILL GET ERECTED LESS EFFICIENTLY! BUSES WILL BE 5 MINUTES LATE, ALL OVER TOWN!!!!"

SomeoneDumb: The tiny city size shown in the last pic is really disappointing. Then again, since I moved from broadband to satellite-ville when I moved to the high desert, an "always connected, online game" is no longer of interest to me. But ... no offline / saving mode? Really?
StrangeQ: MurphyMurphy: Steaming?No, the first step on it's journey to failure was rooted in the idea it MUST NOT be on Steam.Yes, because I love being locked out of my games anytime a third party program decides that it needs to update.
