Ouch

SimCity's Launch Isn't Going So Well

The launch of SimCity has not gone well, and it continues to not go well. It’s going so poorly, in fact, that Electronic Arts and Maxis are going to be turning off “non-critical gameplay features" to try and make it better.

This move was announced by a SimCity community manager on the game’s message boards. These “non-critical gameplay features” include leaderboards, achievements, and region filters.

There are adding new weapons and new monsters. Should be pretty big.

If you don't have a 3DS, you can get a Wii U and get it HD.

No online in 3DS.


The demo is pretty sweet, it features all the weapons and two hunts. Monster Rabbit on easy and and Shark Headed Fish Dragon with Duck legs on hard. DS feels like SnS kinda and LS can't spam spirit combo anymore so it will lose it's bad rep eventually.

I'm def going to take time off work when this comes out. :smt026

So I finally got into Mass Effect this winter and I pretty much went all out on it. Bought all three games and as much of the DLC content as I would allow myself... which turns out to be a lot.

The first two games were Christmas gifts to myself (officially from my wife) but I was still playing through Borderlands 2 DLC and didn't get into the first game until half way into January. In the meantime, my wife blasted through the first game, devoured the second, and "made me" go out for the third. So she sort of liked them.

I'm just starting up on the third. It's a lot more polished than the first two but much more bleak. I'm gearing myself up for a less-than-happy ending. Still, hell of a ride. I'm kind of glad I waited to play them so that I could just OD. :smt026

What is great about the first two games is that you can be the ultimate hero, save pretty much everyone, and make the universe a safer place... depending on the choices you make.

In the third one, I don't even think the best ending is actually all that great. It's still a fun game, though. It's just everything is that much more of a downer. Worlds are being killed. It's hard to be light-hearted about that. But, as a friend of mine says, "Even a bad Mass Effect game is still a Mass Effect game."

WTF. I thought they were using SHARP screens. How are they liable (and the technology has been around for a while now)?

Jury finds Nintendo liable for patent infringement on 3DS tech
