Unfortunately it's MP only.

It's full of n00b's from the free trial so it's not that bad. I do wish it included zombies though, I've been playing that mostly on my friend's XBox.

One weird thing VS COD on the XBox is close combat is hard as hell. On the console it's pretty easy to knife someone, but on the PC I've seen/been in situations where it's 2 people running in circles basically trying to knife each other and failing multiple times due to the incredibly fast rotation rate.

Just played dead space 3 for about half an hour... I didn't like the way the enemies take damage, it looks stupid, especially the dead bodies behaving like balloons... The physics of the game generally feel "old"..

So far I'm far from impressed...

SimCity is out today, but I have to work first

For some odd reason my 6 year old is really wanting to play this game. I'm cool with that. Good bonding time and I can use it to teach her a few basic life lessons such as money management. This is of course assuming she does not get bored with it after 5 mintes

Is "tearing" (parts of the screen doesn't rotate at the same rate making it look like part is tearing away from the other) normal on AC Revelations for XBox? Not sure if for some.reason my Xbox is messing up since I've been having FPS issues with Skyrim.

That's V-Sync. It's not normal behavior for any game. For PC there are settings within both the game and the drivers for it. I'm not Xbox fluent but it would indicate to me a hardware issue, especially if you've started having framerate issues where there were none before.

SimCity is the first game I have owned that requires you to be online to play. So far, I do not like it (not the game, the online DRM). I was not able to play much yesterday due to issues, and I can not play now. All games are saved to their servers, not on my PC. I started three games last night, then had to start over due to their server issues when the games did not save when I closed the game. I know this is not the first time a game has had this type of DRM, and every other example I know of has had these same issues upon game launch. My question, is why? Everyone knew this was going to be a popular game, its not like the initial server load was going to be a surprise. In a few weeks I am certain the resources allocated to the game will suffice, but for now...

I have a buddy that works for EA (he's on the C&C team) and he was lamenting about this just this morning. EA does this to themselves with every big game launch.

I went with ARMA 3 Alpha instead of getting Sim City or Tomb Raider. Though I'll be getting one or both later.

SimCity will not be on my list, ever, because of the always online requirement. It's not the first EA game I've ignored.

It won't be the last.

If you folks don't want situations like ActiBlizzard's Diablo III "Error 37" or this latest shit from EA to become commonplace, stop giving your hard-earned cash to companies militating for always-online, server-based DRM and other such idiotic arbitrary restrictions.

Ah good old Error 37... Yeah I hate having to be online when I'm not playing online. I also hate Origin as well. I haven't played Diablo III in months. It was a good game though.

Same here......EA is welcome to stop by my house and blow me. I used to buy Tiger Woods Golf every other year or so, until they quit putting it on the PC. Played Battlefield as well. Didn't bother with BF3, nor do I plan on buying Crysis 3 thanks to their current business practices.
