Wow, I didn't know there was a SimCity expansion out already!

How could this have been out for 2 weeks and me not know anything about it? So I looked into it. Apparently the sales are in the toilet, there's no advertising, no hype, no chatter, basically nothing at all. And apparently their latest 'stuff pack' didn't sell either.


It looks like EA found a way to kill a great franchise. Makes me wonder what they'll do to Titanfall before it's even found its footing, and it makes me terrifyingly afraid for what they'll do to Star Wars Battlefront 3. Someone hold me :(

It pretty much just exacerbates one of the biggest problems the game has, not enough room.

I miss the old school Sim City where you had what is equal to an entire area to build on, instead of these itty bitty squares that end up making you choose between commercial or industrial and see your entire city go to ish at the turning point of needing proper commerce and tourism - but somehow nobody knows how to run the power plant you need to run it all.

I still play SC4 every once-in-a-while. Can't stand this rebooted turd of a game.

I read a review.

It looks like they finally brought back "Arcologies" that were in SC2000. Except now they are called....MegaTowers? How clever. I also heard they aren't nearly as fun as Arcologies because they take up a huge percentage of your total land among other things.

I'm still not buying this game. Maybe when it's in the bargain bin.

Because it's an online only game and anyone who actually plays the game get bombarded with the ADs for it everytime they log in. It's also been on origin forever and a day (which is another requirement for the game).

So anyone who needed to see this coming, been saw it.

Simcity sucks for only 1 reason, not enough room to build bigger cities
