Mac version of SimCity pushed back until August photo
Mac version of SimCity pushed back until August
by Joshua Derocher

Sad news Mac gamers: you'll have to wait another few months before you can get your hands on SimCity. The release has been pushed back until August, since Maxis has decided that it is "not ready for primetime yet." With the terrible launch the game had on PC, they are probably being extra careful this time around.

Along with the delay of the Mac version, Maxis posted the patch notes for update 5, which will focus on bug fixes for multiplayer and multi-city games. Since the whole game is unfortunately online all the time, and the cities are so small you always have to have multiple cities, this patch will impact everyone playing. There are also new achievements and regional quests, which is kinda cool I guess.

Should we expect games to fully function at launch? photo
Should we expect games to fully function at launch?
by Conrad Zimmerman

It seems we can barely go a month without a game release suffering some manner of issue in its launch week that overshadows the game itself. With the complexity of modern games, the wide range of variables at work and the challenges inherent in releasing interactive products on a global scale, it should be no surprise that such issues are possible, but should consumers be willing to accept them? Check out our responses and add yours as we answer The Question.
