It's here folks, after much uhming and ahhing, and some patently untrue claims, SimCity can now be played offline.

"We've listened to our players and today we are delivering against their most direct feedback with the release of the new Single-Player Mode," said Patrick Buechner, GM of Maxis Emeryville. "Player feedback has helped us deliver 10 major gameplay Updates that have improved the experience with better tuning, new features and free content. This is the most definitive SimCity experience whether you choose to play Online or Offline."

I would say this is a moment for rejoicing, but frankly, I refuse to ignore the fact that we were told not only this would not happen. But that it could not happen. See that? Right there? That's called a lie. Y'all know me, I'm not the type to jump on the hate EA bandwagon. I caution and advise restraint commonly. But flat out lying? Even i draw the line there.

So well done, you listened (finally) to your customers. Next time, do that from the beginning and maybe we'll stop talking about how thoroughly despicable your business practices are. Not bloody rocket science is it?

I have an acerbic sense of wit from time to time

Good news, but is it really Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah good? Maybe Jeff Buckley's Hallelujah instead...
