Official game intro trailer for the SimCity video game, coming to PC next March. It’s the latest instalment of the popular namesake franchise. Not as cool as the announcement trailer last year but this shows the real gameplay instead. I think it’s also the opening sequence when starting the game.
Thought of purchasing this but changed my mind. Apparently the game can only be played online even in single player mode. And I don’t have the most reliable internet to be frank.
This online hook up is becoming a trend, it’s an understandable measure for game makers to counteract piracy. However, I have enough frustrating experience with Diablo 3 in the past few months. It really hurts my appetite for online video games regardless of past interest.
Update March 2013 – The release was disastrous, the online thing was indeed a huge issue. It was the game developer that screwed up though, their servers simply couldn’t handle the huge load.
Well, hope the situation improves soon for the fans and customers sake. I’ve been there before and understand the frustration; that’s why I am not buying the game just yet.
