Hello all of you future mayors! Starting March 5th (US) and March 7th (EU, AU) you can craft the town of your dreams and do as you see fit to it. So it's time to put on your big boy pants and get building!

Here we can collaborate, share tips, and join other players in their region and offer help. Just post your Origin account name and we can all be friends! (I know some of you won't like the fact that its only on Origin, but it's the only way unfortunately)

If you haven't pre-ordered the game and want those bonuses there is still time, but not much.

So, what are you waiting for? let's get building!

Sim City 4 was good, but i have a feeling I'm going to like the new one better.

I've preordered the game on Origin already, can't wait for this to go live tomorrow...and then, I gotta get building!

Gonna try to do it on Sandbox mode first (with money cheats of course) and make my dream city. Then, maybe I'll move on to the online, normal mode...

Is it true that the regions are too small and the game is full of really bad bugs?

the regions are a bit smaller but I think they want you to run multiple cities and have them depend on each other.

I haven't encountered any bugs yet, but it's day 1 of release. It's to be expected.

no i built medium density first and that was my big mistake. I made another city with low density roads first and now I have around 30,000 people

Is it good? :(

I'm hearing the game's actually good, but the servers are fucked beyond comprehension at the moment.

Yeah, the game is pretty nice to play in. But the launcher is always busy and I got kicked outta the game for no reason a dozen times now...always freezing up and crap.

looks like everyone else was right and I was wrong.

SimCity has become physically un-playable for me. either it won't connect to a server even though it says it's available or it does connect to a server but when i get in-game it's like "we actually didn't connect to the server lol".

I just wanted this game to be good, as I'm sure others did as well, but now there is way too much bad blood associated with the game that everyone hates it. Serves me right for wanting to actually have fun in a game.

It's the downside of an always-online game...if the EA servers is having problems, everyone will feel it.

Is there an upside of needing to be always on-line in SINGLEPLAYER???? Eh... i really don't understand why anyone would hurt honest players like that. This DRM is the reason that keeps me from buying this game.

From most of the online news posts I've read, SimCity has become a global catastrophe.

And to think I was seriously considering spending $80 on the Deluxe (YOLO) Edition!

I just wanted this game to be good, as I'm sure others did as well, but now there is way too much bad blood associated with the game that everyone hates it.

People will forget soon after all the launch issues are resolved.

Serves me right for wanting to actually have fun in a game.

I hope that's sarcasm because for a game to be anything but fun just makes it a boring, unpaid job.

They do all this DRM bullshit to prevent piracy, but in the end, in a few weeks, pirates will crack the game and people who bought it will still have problems with it.


shit's amazing
