SimCityThe SimCity fiasco seems to have ended with EA opening up more servers, as well as a server status page so you know how the severs are performing. As an apology for the appalling launch EA sent a release out to everyone stating that they’ll be entitled to one free game from their Origin store, no details other than that were released leaving us all to assume that we could pick any game from their store – we assumed wrong..

EA are offering a total of 8 games to their “patient and amazing mayors” with one of the free games being the deluxe edition of SimCity 4.

For those who receive the email entitling them to a free download you’ve got a choice of:

  • Battlefield 3
  • Bejewelled 3
  • Dead Space 3
  • Mass Effect 3
  • Medal of Honor Warfighter
  • Need for Speed Most Wanted
  • Plants vs Zombies
  • SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition

All games mentioned above are the Standard Editions (barring SimCity 4 obviously). Not a bad choice of games if I do say so myself. Lets just hope the majority of you have a good enough PC to handle most of those titles.

Do you think a choice between those games is compensation enough or should more have been done to apologise for the almost week long issue?
