The new SimCity came out yesterday. But you have to connect to the publisher’s servers to play it… and they’re not working at all. Read the 300+ hilariously-angry, chest-thumping one-star reviews to see just how mad people get about video games.
 “see how mad people get about video games” Makes me upset. DRM is an important debate and this is the kind of instance where it hurts the legitimate people more than the pirates , who have likely already created a fake authentication server so they can play. Acting like people are being frivolous in their outrage just makes its seem like somehow, these kinds of DRM are ok and should be allowed

    Why the heck do they even bother anymore with DRM? This game was already cracked too.
