Looks interesting, might pick it up
Amazing, definitely picking this up.
Probably going to pick this up.
Looks great, but I'm only going to pick it up if they remove the DRM and make it not Origin-Exclusive (they never will)
From what I've been hearing, it re-uses many features that were prevalent in SimCity Societies. I'm starting to get a bit worried, but I think I can trust Maxis to pull it off.
Definitely looks interesting, but if it's an origin exclusive then I'm not gonna get this I think..
Looks too simplified imo
Gonna get this, wish it wasn't so far away
Won't pick it up because of Origin.
Will play the older Sim Cities again though.
This seems to be becoming more and more like Tropico. :(
I wish my games were neither on steam nor origin and that I could play my games wherever the fuck I want without having to be bound to an external service.
The main reason for me to purchase any games these days is for some entertainment while I'm traveling to school by train (which takes 2 hours of my time each day).
But since all these games are forced to be 'always online' or 'online at launch' or linked to some other third party where I can't play offline or without DRM shit (especially origin for this matter), I just refuse to purchase games that aren't 100% accessible at all times since they would be useless for me anyways.
The worst thing about games that are bound to external services these days is that if the publisher phases out these games, we simply can't play them anymore. They shut down their login servers and don't release any dedicated servers whatsoever and everyone who plays the game is simply fucked and forced to buy new shit. I don't want someone else to be able to take away access to content I paid for, no matter how much people 'trust' a company; businesses at their core only care about money.
I don't like the fact that it's on Origin, because it'll never be on sale.
Remind me a bit of Cities XL, but it looks a lot better with more features.
I wan't to see this gameplay video.
But those who do use Steam but won't use Origin are pretty hypocritical.
Origin isn't as bad as people say, in fact I've had less problems with it than I have Steam.
The major thing Origin is missing compared to Steam is the sales and the amount of games.
Though that's no reason to not buy a great looking game.
Only thing Origin has over Steam for me is that Origin actually uses my Max-ish download speed of 5MB/s. Steam normally only downloads at 3.5-4 MB/s for me.
Guys we gotta grow up over this steam-origen thing,we must repect there both buisnesses at the end of the day
I'm worried about the scale of the simulation and the size of cities. Sim CIty 4 had the BIGGEST cities, managing one of those was epic. Really wish it had something like region play in SC4 where you could build more parts of your city on adjacent lots.
In all honesty I think the people who complain most about things not being on Steam like to hoard things in one place. Hoarding isn't healthy, purge that shit
I suppose they have some cheats in the game. They better have cheats ingame.
But has no one noticed that Crysis 2 maximum edition (originally on origin) came to steam after a hissy fit with the fuck ups of ea? See now that they may make a deal to put sim city on steam.
but i already own sim city. i have it on a cd, AND on my super nintendo!
I'm really hating the trend going on right now of making awesome sequels to games we've all been waiting for, only to totally ruin and/or mar them with awful business practices overriding actual good gameplay.
I.E. Diablo 3 being very auction-house focused, hurting the loot gameplay compared to previous titles and forcing always-on DRM because of it
And with this game, you are forced to always be online, you can't ever make more than one city (what you start with is permanent) because the auto-connects you to other cities made by other players for some kind of meta-gaming thing (afaik you don't play or view their cities, you can just get benefits and stuff from them, like sending them aid or something). Plus it will inevitibly be riddled with DLC/microtransaction related stuff, and as such its going to play out more like a high-budget farmville (which does the same type of "your very own farm" type thing, and connects you socially with other people's farms), versus the true SimCity sequel we all want.
I hope it's nothing like SC4.
In Multiplayer you can join a friend's game or just into quckplay but in single player you have unlimited cities and you can make unlimited public or private regions. Maxis Dev talks about this at 7:00
You have nothing to support this other then your own bias. Also they already made a Facebook Sim City game they don't need another.
I really hate how much bad and untrue information has spread out about the game, EA should be doing a better job doing culling this kind of info.
time to level some metropolises
Eww, gross, placement of individual skyscrapers @ 1:12. Srsly, not cool.
As long as I can build a big ass beautiful city then level it with nuclear reactors and tornadoes then yes.
