Yeah, GOG is good for classics. I tried replaying Myst years ago, but it didn't draw me in again. Monkey Island 1 and 2 though always draw me in.

The only fair way to deal with EA's treatment of Sim City is to buy the game in a brick and mortar store but not go through with the Origin installation process. Just pull down a torrent of the game from piratebay at that point for a painless install with (ironically) no EA spyware. It will also rightfully contain the release date 'extra content' which should have been part of the main game instead of being sold separately at ridiculous prices.

EA is living in a dream world if they think they what they are doing to the once great titles that they get ahold of is a sustainable longterm practice for them or for the gaming industry. The craziest part is that when this backfires (and it very much will) their reaction will not be "we may have done something wrong" it will be "Sim City is dead as a genre - there is no consumer interest - let's can the series and focus on more online microtransaction games".

Gaming is very shaky territory at the moment; luckily the indie devs are alive and well.


Unfortunately, EA will probably survive perpetually by driving successful franchises into the ground while making decent money off of name recognition alone. Yet another classic franchise broken by the Worst Company in America.

I know I'm in the minority with this opinion, but I really wish companies would put out RPGs on their own and not make them MMORPGs. For example, I would love to play The Old Republic game, but I have no interest in playing an MMORPG. Same thing with Neverwinter Nights.


For those of you looking for an RPG, you might want to look into this Kickstarter from inXile Entertainment (who has a pretty good track record): http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/inx ... ea14e40467

The game reached it's funding goal of $900,000 in about 6 hours already, and 30 days to go.

I hope they fix Sim City soon, have been looking forward to purchasing it. Not having an offline move is such a dumb move imho.

Based on all the articles and reviews I've read about it, I don't think an offline mode is in EA's idea of worthwhile. Which is disappointing.

Yeah, EA has some big names, and finds some way to mess them up. Mass Effect series for example. ME3 was a really good and egaging game, and then people got to the "endings". Yeah, that didn't work so well and boy were quite a few people mad. The "fixed" ending was a bit better, and more conclusive, but the ending still left a lot to be desired.

EA is like a money blackhole I think. A few reviewers made the point that EA's always online connection for the game is an attempt to make it more difficult to pirate the game, etc. But the reviewers also pointed out that because of the tremendous amount of poor reviews so far, probably the same amount of people (and if not more) previously willing to buy their game and fork of dough likely won't, or will hold off for a while, or won't try to get all their friends to buy.

Anecdotedly the lack of offline thing plus in general EAs breand is exactly what has prevented me from buying the game.

In other news I finished the storyline on GTA: SA. Have begun GTA IV.

I now understand what everyone was saying about the driving and realism. But personally I like it and am enjoying it sdo far,.

Just got an Xbox 360 at my company Christmas party, and Skyrim came in the bundle. Only just started playing it last Saturday, but already I'm addicted. Such an awesome game.

I dont understand? You got given an Xbox 360 from work?


Yes I did. Currently playing Halo 4. My username is Serb Vicious.

Thanks for that. I'm debating what I'm going to do since I didn't like Planescape: Torment.
