Yeah, that’s right…The SimCity servers are still experiencing massive issues.
I downloaded the game earlier this evening, moved some stuff with Nick and Kelly and then settled in for din-dins, at which point I figured I’d fire up the game and start off building my city whilst I enjoyed a nice burger, smothered in jalapenos and tasty bacon.
Well, the burger was great. The game playing, however, is non existent.
This really upsets me. It’s no secret that we don’t have the best relationship with EA but this was one title that I thought I was going to be able to give a glowing review on. Unfortunately, the whole thing is completely fucked.
That’s right… I SAID IT!! It’s FUCKED. I haven’t been able to log in at all. Sure it will sometimes tell me I’m logged but then when I try to start a new game, it tells me that the servers are down and cordially invites me to go ram large quantities of finely pulverized silica directly up my anal orifice and then proceeds to do the square root of jack shit times X to the fuck all. I can’t even do the tutorial.
I know there was a huge debate over this whole thing, wherein I said that having to be logged in to play isn’t that big of a deal. I still don’t think it is… as long as we can actually log in, that is. And this has now been going on for 2 days. WTG, GUYS!!!
You’d think they would learn, after this has happened to other companies in the past but… Another strike for EA.
And now, I’m going to go back to clicking the “retry” button, and see if I can get anywhere. Wish me luck!
