    Seriously? Another game that will eat up a ton of my time when it comes out

    There isn't a Simcity I haven't owned or played a million times.

    Now Maxis needs to take The Sims back.

    And as history has shown to us in many occassions, such talk is extremely reliable.

    Errr I hate EA so much! Charging for DLC's before the game is even out.... And $80 for a sim city game is just ridiculous. I don't even think I'm going to get this game just to spite EA. I'll buy it if it goes on sale.

    Few months ago I have decided to not buy it, even though I have been huge fan of Simcity series.
    Imo this game will be a step back, not forward.

    As for the EA listening to their players, sometimes I feel like they use it as an excuse for their unpopular decisions.
    "players wanted to be able to play from wherever they are and play with their friends, so we made Simcity online-only, in cloud"
    I have enough of EA ruining great franchises and studios, forcing DRM and Origin on their games, releasing incomplete games only to sell day-1 DLCs or spill dozens of DLCs, and then saying it, and microtransactions, is what players want, stopping players from giving EA games poor reviews, as well as deflecting complaints with cheap PR tricks.

    I'm not going to buy any game by EA as long as they continue those practices.

    Whats wrong with it being online only? the majority of Gamers have internet these days. The co-op is quite fun and interesting i think its going in the right direction. Thats my opinion at least.

    Pre-ordered it on GMG just before the voucher ran out. Lots of money saved compared to Origin's overpriced offer.

    That's a topic for a whole new discussion I think, I just used it as an example. In general it's nice if new features are added, but it's not nice when it comes at the cost of other stuff.
    There are many things in new Simcity that make fans angry, but devs seem always to repeat how they listen to their fans and do everything for them.

    I'd rather miss out completely than be forced to buy into another content delivery system just to pad EA's greedy pockets.

    I understand how you feel (I think) but origin is free to download.

    For me it's not about the price of the delivery system but the fact that there's a limit to how much I want to bloat my PC with absolutely unecessary programs and DRM shit.

    I think he is talking about how they are charging $60 for a game, and then $80 if you want the finished version.

    He said content delivery system, aka Steam, Origin and other similiar programs.

    So I finally got to play in the beta event they had this weekend and was left a bit disappointed.

    For one, they closed the beta Sunday morning, which left me only Saturday night really to play. Half the day I couldn't even get into the game (hello online gaming), so that left only a couple hours. Secondly they limit you to only 1 hour of playtime on a city, which between all the help guides they had going on through the beginning left me with about 30min of actual build time.

    You can definitely tell the game was made on a new engine by a different company, and doesn't have the same simcity feel I've experienced with all the other sim city games. By making the game more granular in detail the world doesn't feel as big and I'm not a fan with the new zoning method. The constant interaction with your actual residents makes the game feel more like the sims then sim city.

    Some of the changes I did enjoy, like modular/upgradable buildings, CURVED ROADS, power/water/sanitation effects (follow the road).

    Overall I'll probably still buy the game but not until it goes on discount.

    Soon! Already preordered and can't wait \(^-^\)

    i REALY want a new simcity, and by the looks of it, this seems prety decent. its not perfect, but good enough that i preordered it.
    the new engine is realy nice, the city feels realy alive thanks to glassbox. the only downsides i have is the permaonline thing and the overprized-day1-dlc-bullshit.
    but i have to say, i didnt buy it from ea, i bought it on g2play for 38€. that prie is ok for that game.

    also played the beta, and it really is nice to play with and to figure out good itylayouts and just playing the shit out of the game.

    oh one thing i forgot.
    for all those who dont like the small maps. that was an issue for me 2 in the beginning, but when you play it, its not a huge problem, at least not for me. for me, simcity is more about building a city that is as dense as possible, tha actual size is big enough to have fu8n with it. MAYBE its an issue later in the game, but i dont think so

    considering how much impact and importance neighbour have in this one (you can build an entire residential area in a region and the industrial/working in another as far as I understood, please correct me if I'm wrong) it should not be too much of a issue as you can build your workplaces far away and connect them with trains/roads.
