On SimCity Offline Regional Play

A story on Rock, Paper, Shotgun talks with Azzer, who has more to say on the topic of playing SimCity offline after his a video from this week showing the urban planning sequel playing offline after a bit of hacking to satisfy its reliance on contacting EA's servers to run. He speaks of the "absolute ease" with which the game could be made to simulate the behavior of entire regions on a local machine, which meshes with their previous report quoting an anonymous alleged Maxis engineer making similar comments. Thanks Joao.

Supreme Commander 2 Patched

The Steam Community website has details on a new patch that's now automatically available for Supreme Commander 2 to update Gas Powered Games real-time strategy sequel with a bunch of changes and fixes. GPG was purchased last month, and this is the first update to the game in the past couple of years, though whether these two details are related is not clear.
