Ships Ahoy - SimCity Cities of Tomorrow

EA Maxis announces the release of SimCity Cities of Tomorrow, the expansion for their urban-planning game:

SimCity Cities of Tomorrow is an entirely new way to play the ultimate city-building simulation. Players have the choice to create a utopian society underpinned by clean technology under the auspices of The Academy, or encourage giant corporation OmegaCo to strip-mine natural resources and pollute in the name of making massive profits. These new specializations are set against the backdrop of the all-new MegaTowers, massive structures that players build high into the sky and dwarf the rest of the city. With the right balance the MegaTowers become self-sustaining monoliths that cater to all of the needs of the Sims under one roof. When players have finished deciding whether they want their Sims to live together in harmony, or as members of an exploited workforce, they can rain chaos upon them by unleashing an all-new disaster exclusive to this expansion pack.

The SimCity base game is available on PC and Mac and was developed by Maxis. The base game and expansion pack are cross-platform compatible, so all players play together across the same servers. Owners of SimCity Cities of Tomorrow can play alongside those who do not own the expansion pack and provide them with futurization benefits when they play together in the same region. Launched last March, SimCity has had eight major game updates that have made upgrades to the core simulation and provided game content at no additional cost.

pass. The glaring flaws are now amplified with this nutty expansion, I've never felt better about myself for saving the $30. It's a simple matter of principle. I have enough money saved to buy the entire EA library 500 times over, but I am too disenchanted with this new Simcity. I'm passing on Diablo's raper of souls expansion too. Path of Exile and Grim Dawn have singlehandedly removed Diablo 3's existence off the gaming charts forever.

Be on the lookout for Banished on Steam, coming soon this end of year. That dev deserves our time and praise for what he is going to bring to the masses.

How fucking pathetic is it that they're touting this as if it's some kind of major achievement. These weren't game updates, they were patches to fix your horribly broken, piece of shit game. And oh wow, they were free! You know some bean counter somewhere still seethes over the fact that patches are free.

People who buy this expansion arent worth the oxygen they breathe.

Were this article in a newspaper, I'd clip it out just to put it through a shredder.

Well of course they will dwarf the rest of the city when the rest of the city is the size of a British village.

The Cities of Tomorrow are oddly no bigger than the Cities of Yesterday.

Don't buy this until it hits the bargain bin.

Best thing is they still have fixed nothing, and added new bugs in patch 8 ~.~

k, they fixed that you can build mega cities without shops and industry ;p

This really doesn't sound that exciting at all to be honest.

On top of the issues surrounding the game in the first place, there's not a chance I'd touch this.
