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.

No, it's on EA, not SimCity. The game itself is still a 9, according to Polygon. This would be like rating Call of Duty (pick one, any of them) and giving it an 8, 9, or 10, but then lowering it because the community is bad. The game itself is great, but the things surrounding the game ultimately cause it a lower score? That's something I expect from crying fans a la DMC, not so-called professional reviewers.

Except that's not like a bad community at all. The servers are required to play, a nice or mean community is not. The servers don't surround the game, they are the game. It's unfortunate because if that wasn't the case I'd agree.

Nothing. I'd be more likely to pay the ninety-nine cents for a game than to pay for a weird in game thing like that.

Oh man, that's great. Some people can't actually play the game and that's worth a whole 1.5 points.

I can't fathom this weirdness. Is the forever? Does it go back up when the servers are fixed? What kind of use is a review score that fluctuates on a daily basis?

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.]

Didn't think I would be excited. I was wrong. I really enjoyed what they showed, the features like jumping into a friends game and watching them play sound awesome.

I'm not entirely sure what you're talking about, I didn't realize there was forum activity on the main page. So I guess D.
