The end is near for the SimCity launch debacle as Electronic Arts has finally worked their way through the five stages of grief:
- First came denial… “There’s nothing wrong with our game, it’s just too popular!”
- Then the anger… “No, you can’t have a refund.”
- This was followed by the bargaining… “What if we add more servers?”
- Then wallowing in depression… “It’s supposed to be an MMO!”
- Finally, acceptance and the promise of a free game for all of our troubles.
If you’ve purchased SimCity or plan to activate it by March 25 (that’s right, this offer is good even if you haven’t bought the game yet), you’ll also be given the opportunity to select one of eight games as a free download from EA’s Origin service. Your selection must by made by March 30 and the selection page will open by March 22. The eight games are:
- Battlefield 3
- Bejeweled 3
- Dead Space 3
- Mass Effect 3
- Medal of Honor: Warfighter
- Need For Speed: Most Wanted
- Plants vs. Zombies
- SimCity 4: Deluxe Edition
If you’re on the fence about SimCity, perhaps a free game to go with it could sweeten the deal. But I guess that means EA has slipped back to the bargaining stage.
First up is The Walking Dead: A New Day, the first episode the Walking Dead episodic game series. PS3 players can buy the first episode today for $4.99 or the Season Pass (which includes all five episodes) for $19.99. Also available today is a trio of PopCap PSN releases (Bejeweled 3, Feeding Frenzy 2: Shipwreck Showdown, and Zuma) and the Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds “Complete Collection,” which includes all previously released DLC.
Full PS3 games available this week include EA DICE’s Battlefield 3, rhythm game Grease Dance, and action RPG The Cursed Crusade.
PS3 owners can also now find another PS2 Classic (Red Faction), two PSone Classics (Darkstalkers 3, Future Cop L.A.P.D.), and a Dragon’s Dogma demo on the PlayStation Store.
And if you own a Vita, you can add the Skype app to your handheld for free today.
It’s Wednesday, so it’s time for another dose of the new releases on Xbox Live Arcade Wednesday. Man, how long has it been since someone at Microsoft has referred to it as XBLA Wednesday?
Anyway, this Wednesday is particularly shiny as PopCap will be adding Bejeweled 3 to the download service. Priced at 1200 Microsoft Points ($15), the third Bejeweled game features eight game modes for all your gem matching fun.
Also available this week is Dungeon Defenders, a four-player “tower defense action RPG” (a genre mouthful if I’ve ever seen one). Dungeon Defenders has also been priced at 1200 Microsoft Points ($15)
It’s a match made in heaven as PopCap Games has announced they’ll be bringing Bejeweled 3 to the DS, PS3 and Xbox 360. In addition to the retail releases, a downloadable version of the game will appear on the PSN and XBLA. All three… err, five… versions will be released this Fall.
“Critics agree that Bejeweled 3 raised the standard for match-3 games to new heights,” said Ed Allard, studio head at PopCap Games. “This holiday, we’re bringing that experience to PlayStation 3, PSN, Xbox 360, Xbox Live, and Nintendo DS gamers with adaptations that look great and play even better on each platform.”
This week is the best time to catch up on PopCap’s previous puzzlers as the current XBLA Deal of the Week features big savings on the publisher’s back catalog including Bejeweled 2 and Bejeweled Blitz Live.
