SimCity’s DRM Disaster

Electronic Art’s release of the latest and highly anticipated Simcity is to go down in history as one of the worst game launches ever. I’m sure like me, many of you have fond memories of the old Simcities, spending hours on your Intel Pentium laptop trying to build your perfect city. The new Simcity however, you will most likely be staring at a load screen losing the will to live. (Reticulating splines anyone?). This even makes Simcity societies look good, which frankly I would have rather paid someone to punch me in the face than play it. DRM is clearly not the way forward and hopefully game developers will learn from this.  1573 1 star Amazon reviews, which led to Amazon stopping sales for a period and marketing of the game has been stopped completely. If you’ve bought the game, let us know in the comments!
