Origin Not Allowing Pre-Load of SimCity

From AnalogHype.com: "We are 36 hours away from the triumphant return of the city building classic SimCity, and the experience is already starting to sour for gamers excited to have everything ready to go the second the game is available. " (PC, SimCity, SimCity 5)

Meh, never-mind.

I'll skip it. While I would have wanted to own the latest SimCity, "always online" is a definite deal-breaker for me. Thank you EA. but no thanks.

No Internet in your house? Sat in an Internet cafe posting on N4G?

While disconnects are infrequent where I live, for a game that demands always online, and even had launch day issues (reminiscent of Diablo 3), I'm amused that you'd even post that. :P

I just think that whilst it is a ball ache it shouldn't be enough to deter you from buying it if you wanted it. I played the Beta and can't wait to get started on the real deal tomorrow :)

Sadly DRM is here to stay, so you'll be severely limiting your choice of games by boycotting any future titles that use it.

I am so excited for this game! I am also excited for the online components of the game! It seems strange they do not have an offline mode however it wont affect me. It has been 10 years since the last SimCity and for good reason. The Franchise was getting stale, and they admitted they were getting bored with the series. Well they seem all excited for this new glass box engine and online services with multi city playand it all looks sweet. I get how it is a minor (or major) struggle for people to be online all the time but but the thought of an always online game means they may make some major updates in the future to adjust gameplay. They already have said city sizes with eventually expand so they are willing to change.

There will likely eventually be a "skidrow style" workaround/patch download for those who wish to play offline.
