Now, while we haven't been covering the game on FPSGeneral.com, we have been following the disastrous launch of SimCity very closely. And what a disaster it has been to observe. Jerry Springer himself couldn't fabricate drama like this. Every time you think it's finally over, it picks back up again and surprises you with new and impressive depths of disaster.
As EA and Maxis struggle to save face and try to make up for shipping a completely unplayable game, they have announced that players who register a copy of SimCity by March 25th will be entitled to a free game from EA's Origin catalog. Now, this is why we finally feel like we're able to chime in on the SimCity disaster, because half of the games that are available are actually first- or third-person shooters.
Here's what you can grab for free by registering a copy of SimCity on Origin by March 25th:
- Battlefield 3 (Standard Edition)
- Bejeweled 3
- Dead Space 3 (Standard Edition)
- Mass Effect 3 (Standard Edition)
- Medal of Honor Warfighter (Standard Edition)
- Need For Speed Most Wanted (Standard Edition)
- Plants vs. Zombies
- SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition
Battlefield 3, Dead Space 3 and Mass Effect 3 are all incredible games and we're actually really surprised that they are included in the free offer because they are still very popular games. Medal of Honor: Warfighter wasn't as amazing, but it's certainly worth more than the $0.00 that EA is asking for in this deal. All these amazing shooters at your finger tips...this is going to be a tough choice, but we're sure you'll make the right one.
Bejeweled 3, here we come!
