SinCity Part II

Given Maxis/EA's repeated assertions that the reason SimCity 5 is restricted to online play only is that significant parts of the simulation are handled on the servers because the requirements are too steep for desktop PCs and it can't actually run standalone, coupled with the ongoing costs of providing such infrastructure, there were really only two views one could take: Either their engineers and project managers are deeply, deeply incompetent, or they're lying through their teeth.
