SimCity

The new SimCity game comes out tomorrow.

Anyone getting it? The videos I've seen have looked incredible.

The charts and graphs that show the specifics of your city are much more in depth. The menu is more user friendly, and deeper than that of SimCity 4. The Sims actually tell you in little bubbles why they don't like the city, not just your advisors, which are there as well.

You can add a specialization such as Mining, Technology, etc and allowing you to share your resources and buying them from other cities is great for a new city keeping your waste, power, water and sewage etc in line. Also you can take out Bonds, but you have to pay them back, but it allows you a few options in case you get in the red.

I really love what I've seen so far, all your zoning (commercial, residential, and industrial) are free to zone. Also depending on what you put around the zone means if its low, medium or high quality zoning, so its not hard to put businesses, shopping, and people in your city, but to upgrade through building other things I think is a really nice touch. You can only build along streets and streets are a little expensive, as are your basic buildings like Medical Center, Fire House, Police Station, but overall its so easy to start up a city even if you don't go through the tutorial. There are little help icons that pop up in the top right corner that always help out.

I haven't gotten far enough to really get disasters, or crazy crime, or a nuclear power meltdown, but what I have played is an amazing time so far. I had been playing SimCity 4 for the past week or so to get me psyched to play the new one, and I have to say that there are alot more positives than negatives with this new game.
Keep playing and report back.

SimCity Hack Lets Users Destroy Anyone's Online City Thanks To Always-On DRM

Since the top brass at EA were dumb enough to go through with the hated and repined always-on DRM, there were consequences to be had. SimCity has been a disaster in the media circles since launch all because of the DRM, and now things have gone to the next level as a hack has been discovered that lets anyone invade any of the online cities and lay waste to them...permanently.

CVG noted that EA's director of communications, Erik Reynolds, has been transparent about removing all talk about hacks on the official EA forums due to their terms of service, as noted in Reynolds' tweet.

As a quick recap: Modders found out that you can play SimCity in offline mode as a single-player game. In addition to playing the game offline, the modders have also opened up additional things like larger cities, expanded highways and better population management. In other words, they fixed the broken game that EA shoved down your throats.

However, with all this good news also comes some bad news. Modders have also discovered that it's possible to mess with files client-side to affect server-side activity. I think you all know where this is going.

Basically, as the video shows below, you can enter into another person's online town and wreak havoc, however the modder notes that he turned off synching to the server so as not to actually cause permanent harm to his friend's city.

It's still awesome because this hack is only as destructive as it is because of EA's decision to make the game always-on. If the game hadn't had always-on DRM then this hack wouldn't be half as devastating as it is. Having EA delete these kind of topics from their forums is great damage control but don't be surprised if there's another furor when people start raging on the forums when some hacker decides to go through and Godzilla everyone's town. Enjoy.

Played it for six more hours tonight, still a better game than 4. The only thing that broke the game for me was the Sandbox stuff which allows you to cheat so I stopped playing that because it takes all the fun out of it and makes it a mediocre game. The only issue I had was finding a server that I could build a new city on. Every single game that had people in it on the Europe East server was packed so I had to create a new game. It makes it annoying that you have to start a new region and your trade will take forever to get going. Overall I still like the game, but just like SimCity 4, I'll get tired of building cities sooner or later.

Yeah I guess I'm lucky, I played Dead Space 1 and 2 and was going to buy 3 but then I read about the free game debacle for people who bought the game by the 18th, Heart of the Swarm came out, so I waited and hoped and low and behold I get a $60 game for free now. Pretty sweet, if Dead Space 3 weren't on that list... bleh, I don't know what I'd go with because I picked up SimCity 4 on Steam Sale last year so I guess.... Battlefield 3?...

I will just continue to play Tropico until this game gets sorted out. I'm tempted to buy it before the 25th though to qualify for the free game
