    And it looks pretty too.

    Anyone play this on a modest system? Wondering how it will run on my lappy.

    This is a beautiful game to come out just when I really need to buckle down on my spending and wait for summer to hit.

    Been excited about it ever since the first alpha videos dropped.

    Buying the Game from Amazon and the DLC from Origin still works out cheaper than buying both via Origin.


    :confused:

    I pre-ordered the limited edition version but I'm not sure about the dlc. 20 seems a bit steep for a London bus.

    Cheers Bealsy.

    I'm definitely wanting all the things, just not for 65. I'm moving house soon!

    Any good vids about the multiplayer side of things Gray?

    Limited Edition from Amazon + DLC from Origin = 34.99 + 20 = 54.99

    Is the Origin exclusive building Plumbob Park worth 10.01?

    I'm way too lazy to buy from multiple sources.

    I'm guessing that it's just a standard park, but with a green Sims diamond in the middle of it

    Worth every penny

    The multiplayer side of things sounds really interesting from what I can gather. Seems there are a maximum of 16 cities to a region.

    + Zombies!

    That HypnotoadProductions guy that teamham linked to on the previous page has a decent amount of content. He even mentioned the Zombie apocalypse (a zombie emerges from your clinic and goes on to infect the world) :D

    stupid question but how does the multiplayer actually work

    you start a city in a region of 16 cities, and other people fill up the other 15 cities regardless of whether you want them there or not?

    can they mess with your game? what if you want to start a new city, you have to build one in a totally different region?

    Info on MP is pretty sparse.

    From what I understand you can have a private region to yourself where you can eventually claim all the cities in a region. A friends only region and an open region where anyone can join in.

    What I'm wondering is if they are persistent so you and 16 others can share region and things go on without you like a PC minecraft server or if it's like an Xbox 360 minecraft server where you have to be logged in before your friends can play on it.

    I'm not much of a multiplayer fan but i do like the online connected aspect of some games like Diablo 3 where you could see what your mates are doing all the time.

    A friends only region sounds like it could be fun.

    Definitely wont be playing a free for all region where you'll get surrounded by 15 cock and ball shaped cities.

    Yeah there's zero chance I'll go anywhere near an open region. Friends only server does sound great though.

    Maybe an EG region if a few of us are getting it? If that's even possible.

    I've had it on pre-order since June so I'm fairly certain I'll get it. :-)

    Stick me down for an EG region.

    Yeah stick me down as well.

    This will absolutely meltdown on day one though. I'll eat my left testicle if they pull off a faultless launch.

    They really should do staggered unlocking for this sort of thing really. Invite only for the first month or something. But then people would just bitch when they're not first up. I guess you can't please everyone

    March 5th for US. 8th for Europe. Hopefully the major problems will be sorted by the time we get it.

    Yup, sounds good to me.

    Any chance a mod could change the thread title to something a little less negative?

    Good idea to look on Amazon. $20 store credit so I can get it for $40. Can't find a link to get the DLC separately on Origin but I reckon I can live without a bunch of building skins.

    Work is going to be a bitch on the 6th.
