When will this ridiculous fad end. Diablo 3 received quite the backlash after it's servers failed. Now SimCity crashed. I sure hope this puts an end to "always
online for single player games" dealibob.
This sickens me:[quote user=" "]Already on March, 3th. Ryan Lashley started a petition on Change.org, in which he was grathering signatures to make EA remove the need of internet in order to play a single player campaign, it spread across the internet, and
quickly reached Reddit and Youtube, where it quickly gathered roughly 50.000 signatures in 5 days.
EA’s offical statement on this is: “The always online requirement is a good thing.” and that they’re not going to change it in the future.
[/quote]I really wish people would stop buying their games. I mean, they have some great IPs, but they need a wake up call that they're going down the wrong path. Preventing piracy is one thing. Doing a disservice to people who want to play your games is
This is abit old, there was massive shitstorm about it last week.
Clearly an effective anti-piracy tool, not consumer friendly though. If the game worked day one no issues, people wouldn't be going crazy..... however they screwed up sooo badly and so did Blizzard with Diablo 3. They fully deserve all the hate and criticism
for being ignorant enough to think the servers would hold up.
Always having to be online will be annoying even though I am always online anyway. If something like this happened to one of the games I played I would be annoyed, but I would just play a different game or do something else until it was fixed.
