I've been looking forward to this version of SimCity for a long time. Then I recently learned Origin is requiring their detested "must be logged into Origin to play" nonsense. This is wrong on so many levels,not the least being the spyware nature of Origin. So I will not be getting this game until it is available in some other way.

I hope the franchise thrives. I loved 2000 a lot.

The potential is there for themed versions: Cyberpunk Sim City, Steampunk Sim City, Dystopian Sim City, Roman Sim City, you name it...this will be a tasty summer treat for me when classes end.

No, no, no, don't drag me back into Will Wright's infernal "software toy"! You don't know what it's like, ever since the very first version of that monstrous time devourer was released.

And just when you think you've escaped for good, comes the faint sound of prerelease hype for the next release. You flee in a blind panic, but you know it's no good... sooner or later it will engulf you, and you'll find yourself using the landform editor to sculpt valentines in an orgy of self-destructive geekitude.

Or maybe that's just me.
