honestly i have to stop reading the comments section on this website, it's just too depressing.

i'm really excited for this game. lord have mercy, saying this on a video game website is sure to net me a lot of hate i know, but goddamnit with every bit of media that comes through the cracks i get more and more excited. (i probably secretly work for EA)

i'm only worried as to stability issues if you read the kotaku article, but i have faith it'll all work out, this will be bigger than the sims. But i can see launch day being iffy at best.

the way this real simulation engine works is just awe-inspiring, seems to have something i've always thought missing from other "city builders". been playing some anno 2070 lately, and it just can't hold my attention. this new cim city looks like crack, i'm going to love whole weeks of my life to this game i can tell.

also, to all the haters on here, buzz off, no one wants to hear your anti-ea hyperbole bullshit nonsense. it's an article about how the lead visual designer has made modes to help people who are colorblind. and yet somehow you spin this into OOH EVIL EA STRIKES AGAIN! NOBODY CAN SAVE THIS FROM EA EVIL BLA BLA BLA. dumb-ass rhetoric. you guys really do make yourselves out to be knobs when you can't even stick to the issue at hand.

Obama is trying to get uninsured people access to healthcare, HE'S HITLER! OMG ITS COMMUNIST STALIN! IT'S HITLER-STALIN! OMGOMGOMG seriously take a deep breath and come at me with some reasoned logic and tempered reason, and you'll have an audience, until then flock off.

EA or not doesn't matter except for 1 think that is connected to the other thing that prevents me from buying this game.
EA loves to shut down servers. Granted they finally pulled the plug on Sims 2, everything in my core tells me that when they do that the game will be unplayable.
Which brings me to my second issue. There is no offline play at all. I just picked up Simcity 4 a few weeks ago on sale, because it doesn't require anything special to run it. From a longevity standpoint it would be better for EA to include an offline mode so they can continue sales long down the road.

The city size is a peeve, but if other cities in the region share resources it's a wash for me personally. Would I love bigger spaces? Of course.

Using a steering wheel on a Burnout game is like using the Space Shuttle controls to fly a kite.
