The lights are on
Update: SimCity's Lucy Bradshaw has closed the floor for questions.
For the next 30 minutes, Lucy Bradshaw, general manager for the Maxis label, will be taking over the official SimCity Twitter account in order to take your questions.
The most recent Twitter post reads, "Today is about being open, answering your ?'s and letting you know we get it, we know we screwed up, now let's get you enjoying #SimCity." Bradshaw spoke up this morning about SimCity's problems, and it looks like she, Maxis, and EA want to continue that conversation.
Jump in there if you want to find out why you can't play the game you've been waiting for, and we'll make sure to post any pertinent answers here on Game Informer.
Email the author Kyle Hilliard, or follow on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, and Game Informer.
PREPARE FOR THE SH*TSTORM!!!
"Today is about being open, answering your ?'s and letting you know we get it, we know we screwed up, now let's get you enjoying #SimCity."
I feel bad for that Maxis rep, cuz I don't believe it was their decision for the intrusive DRM.
I feel sorry for this guy...
They'll conviently dodge most, I bet.
Oh well, at least they're trying to fix it.
I sit here, surrounded by the awesome PS1 and SNES games I just bought, eating popcorn with an evil grin on my face. I never thought I'd take so much joy in watching something burn down.
Some good old schadenfreude right here.
Well, that was fast
I was really excited for this game, and due to my money situation went with just tomb raider. I'm glad I did for this reason of always online crap that the publishers are trying to do with pc gaming. GI keeps defending them along with others by saying this is typical for any MMO. The thing with MMOS is they are designed to be played with massive amounts of people. This is a single player game that has some co-op elements to it. Therefore it shouldn't have an always online connection and wouldn't have had the problems they are facing now.
