    SimCity...Gaming....This list could get long...Have a Good Day!
  1. Download time?

    12:01 am EST
  2. Timer?

    When is the official release time on the 5th? If it is possible could someone please post a countdown timer? Edit: I just looked at another post. I got my answer...12:01 am. The timer would be nice though.
  3. I just bought the game. It looks great. I'm just going to play both (SimCity and XL). XL Nation actually gave me hope for a good game with all the mods.
  4. Can anyone recommend a game until SimCity Release?

    I looked at that but the dodgy DRM put me off so I ordered Cities XL 2012 instead. O thanks for the reply...I'm sorry but what is DRM? How you like that XL? Did you get the Platinum? DRM is Digital Rights Management, which sounds ok in principle, I'm as anti piracy as the developers who are trying to protect their work and I never use pirated copies. The problem with some forms of DRM such as Securom & Tages is that they have a 3 or 5 times activation limit and, as even a Windows update can force reactivation, you can reach the limit very quickly, leaving you with a nice coaster but no game to play. It doesn't stop the piracy either, there are always cracked versions available to those who are happy to steal other people's hard work. The end result is that honest paying customers suffer while the pirates continue to get away with the theft anyway. I just got the 2012 because that's what Amazon had. I looked at the download at gamesplanet but a bit of research put me off them, a lot of people say they have had problems with being overcharged, corrupted files, not getting their product key and support being very slow to non-existent. I don't know how many of the claims are true but there were enough to make me decide to wait for a physical copy to be delivered from a reliable supplier. Okay I got what your saying now. Thanks and I hope you enjoy Cities XL

  6. Can anyone recommend a game until SimCity Release?

    Thanks for the recommendation Zuk, but I am not into RPG's that much. I'm pretty much a shooter guy that is slowly working his way out of those games and getting more involved in simulation games. I'm still undecided on what game to get sooo.. I'll be doing more research today. Anyone try that Anno 2070?
  7. Can anyone recommend a game until SimCity Release?

    Thanks Msprintz. Its funny you just mentioned that. I was just watching a video on that game and I clicked back over here and you were talking about it. Nice! Looks pretty cool
  8. Can anyone recommend a game until SimCity Release?

  9. Can anyone recommend a game until SimCity Release?

    Yo City Life doesnt look that terrible actually. Oh just curious why everyone hates SC Societies? I have noticed that. I've been on here for a couple weeks. This site should be called the SimCity 4 forums.
  10. Can anyone recommend a game until SimCity Release?

    okay sounds good. very cheap download on Amazon right now. I guess SC4 it is! I will also check out City Life... Thanks Everyone for your advice ! Does everyone really hate Cities XL Platinum that much?
  11. Can anyone recommend a game until SimCity Release?

    Yea I thought of that too. I'm sorry to the die hard SimCity 4 fans, but graphically it looks really old . I also seen that people were experiencing problems with Windows 7.
  12. Hey everyone! I would like to find a simulation game until SimCity is released on March 5th. I'm having a hard time finding something and I do not want to waste my money. Does anyone have any ideas? I'm tired of FPS's at the moment. I am considering Cities XL Platinum. Just to get my fix in. Also are any of these Roller Coaster Ty games good?
  13. Beta 2 Screen Shots

    Everyone's cities are huge! After seeing this I really have much to learn! How did everyone's city grow so fast? Here is a video of my weak city getting hit with a quake. http://youtu.be/3BplXgNkDmc
  14. Will you buy Simcity 2013?

    I have already purchased this game and I am very excited to start building. I have not played SimCity in ages and this game from what I have played from the beta and the online videos has really caught my attention. It breaks up the everyday go and shoot them up FPS games for me. I know but this may sound crazy I look at this as an educational tool for some people to help show how building a city works. Nothing more pleasuring when your 2 young kids are looking over your shoulder and asking you to put a park in for children or a school bus stop in the neighborhood. Its better then having them asking me "did you die?" or "did you shoot that guy?" For those mad about the online ordeal..... get with the times! Also anyone looking to join up and participate as a region/team. Check out Friend Finders Association (FFA) in the group section. We are looking for freinds to help build regions.
  15. When does the beta end?

    It ends tomorrow (Sunday) 6:01am PST.
