SimCity Multiplayer Preview: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Always-On [Dealspwn]

Dealspwn.com writes: "I want to be angry about SimCity requiring an always-on internet connection in order to play. I want to rant and rave, to rend my garments in twain while wailing from the rooftops. I want to become incandescent with fury, shouting about how my singleplayer passion has been forever tainted to anyone who'll listen. On principle, as much as anything.

But I can't. I won't, because Maxis came to E3 2012 to show us exactly what this internet connection will be used for. Over the course of twenty minutes, it became apparent that collaborating with friends to create a little piece of heaven in a persistent virtual world is going to be SimCity's most important selling point, and one that promises to elevate the already-impressive simulation into something unique and rather wonderful, even by Maxis standards." (E3, PC, SimCity)
