Scott Johnson’s My Extralife comic is a mainstay of my webcomic reading. This great comic is a wonderfully dry observation on recent “always online” requirements.
As far as SimCity’s cluster-fail of how they handled the customer … well its been said that EA are not the best publisher or distributor when it comes to customer service, and I cannot disagree too much. No way in hell I’m buying a product when the vendor shows such plain disdain for their customers. That would be just rewarding them. The new Sim City might be the best version ever created, but I’ll wait for the next one. Or the one after that.
