I can definately say one thing...

it's pretty wierd not saving your game at all, at first I had that nagging doubt that there had to be something else I needed to do before leaving the game heh :p :)

I know I'm being pedantic and y'all will hate me, but I had to rename the topic - it's not officially called 'SimCity 5' but just 'SimCity'.

Anyway, it sucks having to wait until Friday just because I'm in the UK. Given the drama involved with their servers not coping with demand, I guess it's not the end of the world. I would rather wait and have an easier time of it when I do have access.

You could have turned 'Official' into a tag while you were at it. :p

Okay, I take that back. They changed the release dates today. Europe (except Ireland and United Kingdom) is on the 6th now:

My mouse is (was) on the buy button, what should I do? Did anyone get the deluxe edition (though I don't think I'd get it)?

I don't get why it said my graphic card is newer then what it needs but its slow. yet I can still run it on medium/high. Atleast in the beta. Didn't get a chance to play final yet.

You can buy the limited edition and then pay the difference to buy the other parts later if you want.

While it's entertaining... it should be called Sim Ville or Sim Town, the cities are incredibly small.


It seems that a Region is closer to what a City used to be, and that now each City is, as you stated, a little more like a large town. There has been a lot of conversations about this on Reddit and the base issue is that Maxis wanted the game to work well on older machine and that larger cities could be coming at a later date when they know a system can handle to processing power required for all the sims.

I hear your point, and I do hope that larger cities will become available.
