Simcity 5 Offline Version Plans Rejected

During the early development of the City-building simulation game, SimCity 5, Electronic Arts had plans of having a single-player version of the game, but unfortunately it was rejected.

As many people are playing the game, some are having complains of the game’s requirement to be constantly connected to the internet.

Maxis head, Lucy Bradshaw, said that an offline or single-player version of the game will not be proper or just doesn’t fit for their main theme which is the multi-player city building game. And she said that many players are contented or prefers the multiplayer mode of Simcity 5.

Since the game was released on March 5, 2013, more and more players are complaining that the need for being constantly online is causing some glitches, bugs, and other problems such as the delays just to play the game.

Other gamers and geeks have been messing up with the codes and used their magic tricks just to play the game offline. They changed some codes that will let the game think that it is connected online even if it is not. Some have suggested the game maker through phone or emails to release an offline version of SimCity 5.

Apple Inc. faces another problem.

After all of the recent dilemmas in stocks, the popular super tech giant Apple Inc. falls from the top spot in the list of Forbes’ “World’s Most Admired Companies.” The publication will be released later within this week in its list of 2013 rankings.

Brad Chases, a contributor for Forbes, have written on the change of the rankings. To quote what he has written:

“The company isn’t going to disappear anytime soon. But the value of the once-invincible brand is teetering on the edge of a long, steady drop. Apple’s well-documented approach to fostering a virtual community and establishing an open and transparent dialogue with its customers has been one of the leading drivers in its success. And now it is the cause of its inevitable demise.”

On the other hand, an annual shareholders’ meeting was held by Apple Inc. on Wednesday. The company confirmed that they will be releasing new products for 2013.

Apple Inc.’s shares were up to 1.40 percent at $449.27.
