    Please, for the love of god, don't make a SimCity game for gamepads. Please.

    [ HyRax1 edit: For all posters - This thread is for discussion about the GAME SimCity. It is NOT about EA's policies or how they implement DRM. if you want to discuss anything other than the game itself, take it elsewhere. Discussion on any topic that is not about the GAME itself will earn you a 24 hour ban. ]

    It looks like concept art, like digital paintings

    So basically we know nothing except for a few useless images which are just concept art.

    "We"? Don't put everyone in your basket of ignorance, for those who actually read it:

    • The game is coming, the screens are from an article in a german magazine that will break the news
    • It will be released in 2013
    • Maxis are still developing it
    • It apparently has multiplayer
    • It will have a new graphics engine

    Being released in 2013 is the only thing we really know. The rest are obvious. Of course it's going to have a new graphics engine, of course Maxis will still develop it. 'Apparently' has multiplayer? How about stop hovering around speculation and give us the real facts.

    Also, where is the link to all this information?

    :rolleyes:

    That's obvious is it? Do Mass Effect 1, 2 and 3 have new graphics engines, one right after the other?

    Another 'obvious' thing was it? Because developers never let other studios handle some of their games :rolleyes:

    Yes, apparently, as per the original post. Did you enter the thread reading something else? Was it all presented as fact? Have you run out of shit pub threads to troll with that you now have to start in the games forum?

    Here's a (not so great) translation of the article for those who aren't trolling the thread:

    If the game ships like that the first thing I will do is turn off the stupid bokeh. Its one thing that our eyes see things like that but in gaming it just forces us to see one area only clearly, which takes away the point of having the other parts on screen especially in a rts.

    Yeah the problem is our eyes can move and refocus in a fraction of a second but in a game it requires you to move something around manually which is annoyingly sloooow

    I just hope that this SC will finally have expandable boundaries. So sick of artificial boundaries... can I just buy the land next door and expand... With 6 and 8 core PCs these days maybe this would finally be a game will get close to using all that grunt!

    Ultimately, not interested in yet another rework with a few fleshed out features and better gfx. This jaded (old :Paranoid: ?) gamer wants to feel like he's not played it before...

    I'm hoping this isn't going to be another Spore... I've had the itch for some Sim City lately :(

    Lol only messing with you phil. Thought I'd play with you since you're always calling me a troll and think I'm that nickeax guy.

    Love this series, can't wait for the next one. Hopefully it doesn't get dumbed down.

    looks good. as long as it doesnt get zapped by the DLC stick.

    and hopefully they've moved on from purely land use zoning planning controls to "encourage" development :3

    The announcement trailer is not actual gameplay but one of those 'Intended look' videos so dont get too fired up about the visuals just yet...
