I would assume for pirating purposes.

I don't see why people have a problem with online only play even if it's single player. Don't you all have internet connections anyways?

According to that article it basically is stating that Sim5 is like a mmo. You play WoW with a constant internet connection.

Why? That is obvious. Money and control.

Look, when I first heard about a new Sim City, I was excited. But always on internet needed for even the single player, is just something I can't put up with. Plus you always have to look into the future and wonder if you will ever be able to play it again years down the road once they shut down their activation server.

It is EA behind this, nothing good has come from EA since they went from making games to destroying them. Makes me think of this that I saw:

Simcity 5 preview, The Game Jar | SimCity Preview

Sounds promising, though the same could be said for Spore which changed a lot before it was finally released.

Looks amazing.


Just not crazy about water being carried by roads now.

I like the overall idea of water and electricity carried along roads for most of my utility grids, since that's a natural path for the grids anyways. However, I really hope there is the option for custom pipes and lines for connecting certain areas where roads aren't needed.

It looks really good but I still will not get it unless they drop the always on internet DRM.
