First 10 minutes PC

SimCity is finally available on PC (and soon on Mac), after years of waiting. We therefore offer you videos of the tutorial that teaches to the new mayor the basics of city management and some possible interactions with the cities within the region.

I feel bad for Maxis, with all these EA shenanigans.

I really really hope this flops hard. And that'd be the first time I say that about a game...

I'd like it to flop hard but it won't. I wonder when "extra map size" and "local saves" will be avaiable for just couple of bucks. Pathetic.

Didn't buy Diablo 3. Won't buy SimCity. There's no justification for these games' "Always Online" crap.

I haven't played the game, but it's a damn shame they've gone this [online] route with the game.

For anyone looking for a real city builder check out the Anno series!

So let me get this correct: you need an internet connection to play this game just by yourself? Am I right?

kind of. It's essentially a multi-player only game. Each region has space for 2-16 players to build a "city". The area in which you build the city is painfully small.

I haven't play this game, but reading more about it it seems that the CPU intensive simulation stuff restricted how big they could, realistically allow players to build a city & probably led them to this particular design.

Of course that doesn't make it any less ridiculous that a player can't just play the game offline.

What an absolute farce and a disgrace. I'd imagine this is just so that EA could try and combat people pirating the game to make more money, when in fact it'll potentially backfire in their greedy fat faces, and rightly so. The irony there. I hope it tanks and tanks hard.

Right.. because it backfired on Activision with Diablo 3 so hard. That game barely broke any records!

The masses don't care. Why would the publishers?

So you want developers out of jobs just because the publishers are greedy. There are far and few between publishers that won't screw over the public for some extra cash, and if the game doesn't make enough money they just close down the studio that developed it (putting a lot of people out of work) and move on to the next money maker. Boycotting doesn't hurt them just developers.
