All this talk about vision, and importance of always online, is as suspected, a big load of BS.

Apparently this whole regional connection and online thing, works pretty much the same as in SimCity4, only tied via poorly written protocols, to poorly setup servers.

Well the free game apology list is out and here is what EA is offering:

Battlefield 3 (Standard Edition)
Bejeweled 3
Dead Space 3 (Standard Edition)
Mass Effect 3 (Standard Edition)
MOHW (Standard Edition)
NFS Most Wanted (Standard Edition)
Plants vs. Zombies
SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition

Not a bad list given that the game is working fine now.

A bit late with the share, but the Zero Punctuation review of SimCity is something you should watch.

If you've never watched ZP, it is rude, crude, socially unacceptable, and definitely NSFW. You have been warned.
Want to improve your game? The best thing to buy is more paint and more field fees.

The problem with America is that we confuse our politics for religion, and our religions for science.
