Seeing how you can't play or save your progress since the servers are down.

I'm not buying it because I don't want to deal with DRM, origin, and streams i've been watching and my friends have had terrible times trying to play with friends, or even play at all. The launch of this game is looking like a debacle IMO.

I don't buy any single player games with always online DRM. I know a few people who did buy SimCity and are really frustrated with the issues. There is no excuse for why they should exist at all on launch day, because there is no excuse for always online DRM.

So even though people are saying right now that the servers are down, you are some how magically able to connect any play?

It's a weird day indeed when people defend this crap.

He must be a paid spokesman for EA. Look at his other posts. Just add him to your ignore list.

I hate this attitude. Any time someone posts about having a positive experience with a game these days, some ass has to come along and accuse them of being paid off by the company. Paranoia to the extreme folks.

Sadly he has a case because companies are known to manipulate social networks in this manner.

Sad that I had to prove this.

But that's GameFaqs for you.
