I won't play the online only game. I'm a solo player-I like to build cities and regions...period. This new version isn't about that. SC4 is outdated. I've had Sim City since it was a new game. Thanks EA, for killing it for the real fans.
If I buy it-it's mine. It stops being yours to dictate uses for and of right after you take my money. That's called a transaction. If anyone wanting to do transactions can't deal with their age-old simplicity, then they're not likely doing a transaction but are performing a lease.
Guess what? I don't PAY transaction prices for Leases.
