    You could still get it due to the way it was put up in the Xbox marketplace. [At least for ME2... on Xbox.] You just needed the direct link.I have them even though I don't have ME2. You can also get them in the Recon pack.

    Thinking of buying Sim City? Think again, and buy Tropico 4 or Anno 2070. They're both superb games. Both have online DRM stuff, but you can still play them both offline if you want to, in singleplayer. And your save games are on your PC.

    Isn't there an activation limit with Anno 2070 too?

    There is, but they'll release it if you give them a call.

    Because they can and will say no if they suspect fraud etc... Its like Microsoft - they'll stop you re-activating Windows XP if you change something, but if you call them and explain it was a fault or whatever, they'll sort it for you.

    It adds a 'human' aspect to verifying you're not a crook.

    New patch hits 9pm tonight, weird time for them to do it.

    Also the join game screen appears to have been fixed and bringing active regions to the top again.

    Looks like the king is coming back.

    Also, have they fixed / going to fix / written in the patch notes about resolving the Gambling side of the game?

    I failed so hard when trying that because i couldn't get any high end casinos.

    SimCity players in revolt after 2.0 patch leaves cities overflowing with bugs and faeces

    Just as EA and Maxis seemed ready to put launch issues to bed and march onwards with the development of their “MMO”, SimCity’s 2.0 patch has infused the game with a colourful array of shiny new bugs. Fans have taken to Reddit and official forums to decry the mess, which has left some cities literally overflowing with waste.

    Human excrement is at the bottom (sorry) of one common issue encountered since yesterday's patch. A concerned Redditor reported a “sewage OVERLOAD” in a town with a relatively tiny population of 4,000 that saw their outflow pipe “MAXED”. Another player beginning a new town with a similarly-sized bevy of civvies found their terminally incontinent Sims had already put 55 in the clinic.

    Not all of the bugs are so ripe for comedy. Some SimCity players have found themselves stuck on loading screens when attempting to resume cities created before the patch - though they've had no problems in creating new ones. Others lucky enough to access their saves have discovered that buildings wouldn’t complete construction, instead becoming perpetual building sites.

    Meanwhile, while players are celebrating the end of traffic issues caused by “clumping” fire trucks and endlessly looping transit vehicles, more dramatic pile-ups are occurring as the result of new problems. One poor mayor saw their streets turned gold yesterday with hundreds of bright yellow and totally inexplicable taxi cabs
