Does anyone else refuse to buy always online games no matter how much they want to play the game? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Just because the same sites keep posting that the new Xbox will be always online does not mean the rumors are getting stronger. It means they have nothing better to report on. For all we know, this "always online" will be controlled on a game by game basis like the PC. The fact of the matter is we don't know anything, and we won't know anything until Microsoft tells us what their plans are. Sit back and relax. tongue.gif

As for always online games, I don't play a lot of single player games, so 80% of my gaming purchases happen to be always online.

I got the game
39.99 from amazon and activated it with origin

If you are already playing and get DCed you can still play, it doesn't pause you or anything like that. I was at my buddies house with my laptop and his router locked up and for a good 15 min or so and I was playing offline, after internet came back online the game automatically connected back up and I was still playing with both my buddy and another friend over the internet. So they at least have that right.

The game really isn't bad, can spend days on that game if I wanted. Pretty fun making entire regions with friends. Really have to plan them out, a lot of factors come into place. I wouldn't pay full price for the game, but for 40 bucks I can't complain.

You have about half an hour before it kicks you... At least that is my understanding. You can not just connect then pull the internet and keep playing all day.

That may change and hopefully it does but unless that happens I am not buying it.
