View Full Version : Maxis: SimCity‚??s Always Online Req Not About Piracy

You‚??ve probably heard that SimCity will come tethered to a pesky always online requirement. You might have heard that we don‚??t like it very much (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/03/28/simcity-to-be-crippled-by-always-on-lets-change-this/). But then ‚?? like an absentee father ‚?? it‚??s really only an absolute necessity on start up (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/03/29/simcity-always-on-clarified-will-need-internet-for-every-launch/), so things could be worse. Still, though, I like playing games when I‚??m thousands of feet in the air, in the middle of nowhere, or punching my incredibly spotty router for yet another hour of downtime. ¬*‚??Why,‚?? I‚??m instead forced to bellow at SimCity, slumping to my knees in defeat. ‚??Why can‚??t I play you in a car, on a tree, in a box, or with a fox?‚?? ‚??Piracy!‚?? replies the roving Internet peanut gallery. Maxis, however, claims it‚??s prepared to prove everyone wrong.
