That's a little bit of bull. The servers allow people to access the game, sure, but they're supposed to be reviewing the game itself, not the ease of access to it.
If it wasn't a necessary part of the game, than sure, it wouldn't matter. But when some people can't connect to the game, or lose progress because the servers a fucked up, that's entirely on Sim City because there is no game without the servers.
I think that's the choice you have to make now-a-days. You either can wait for it to go cheaper, or can't wait and buy it immediately Thankfully I've gained patience over the years and now find it easier to wait on a game that's going to be twenty dollars cheaper in four weeks. And I rarely care about DLC, I doubt this will change that for me.
Yeah, I watched a bit of that, but couldn't stand it for too long and began scrubbing until Chris and Griffin came on, and Justin at the end was perfect, "Hey, guys, VIDEO GAMES." All the talk about what they didn't show was just frustrating. Guys, they just made the announcement and they made a pretty good show of what they had.
[If I wasn't lazy I'd put a .gif of Justin dancing here.]
