Rant

SinCity

Filed this under "Rant", but it's not my rant, it's by John Walker over at Rock, Paper, Shotgun:
[T]here was only one valid response from EA after the clusterfuck of SimCity’s launch: capitulation. A full admission that the DRM that infests their game was needless, a bad mistake, and that they’re working to strip it out for single-player games as quickly as possible.

Claiming SimCity fixed, by removing the server queues, random crashes, lost cities, server drops, and the artificial restrictions placed on the game just to make it run, is like claiming a broken leg fixed because you’ve mended the crutches.

That's just getting warmed up.  And some of the comments are downright harsh.

1 EA?  Admit a mistake?  Surely you jest!
EA?  Make a mistake?  That's unpossible!

2 EA slowly fade into irrelevance?  Suits me fine, if they could just stop dragging great franchises down with them.

3 I sure wish they would, but when you realize that every story about how horrible the game is is full of comments by people who are going to buy the game anyway, or, like Fudds in the US, don't care, because it didn't affect them.
