Re: Simcity, they (for some stupid reason) made it always online. I don't see why they couldn't have had two "modes" (multiplayer and single). Anyway, since it's always online even for single player games, their servers were overloaded and for almost a week it was impossible to get to play the game for more than 5 minutes at a time. Since then they've added lots more servers and fixed that issue, but still... that's why nothing should EVER be online-only. I heard the new XBox will be always-on.
RE: Sims 4, not much has been released yet since it was only just announced before my last post. They still have a full year of development to do before launch.
