Rome Total War 2 Glitches

I was excited to finally buy Rome Total war when it came out, for around 60 or 70 bucks (I can’t remember off the top of my head). However I have been very disappointed in how glitchy the game has been. From just plain throwing exceptions that require quitting the game and losing a turn or two’s progress to my most recent issue which is where the game does not allow you to use the mouse to move around the map or use the bound keys to rotate your map view. For such a huge map as the one Rome Total War 2 uses, this is a game-killer. I looked online and found a solution, which was simply to reload a old save game – but unfortunately like clockwork once I got to the end of that turn and proceeded to the next turn the glitch happened again. If anyone is interested in the save game file I am open to sharing it. From a few threads it looks like this problem happens if a certain number of attacks and retreats happened in a turn, which is ludicrous! You would think this game would be tested better as it has been the most pre-ordered game in the total war series!

Anyways, I thought I’d write this post in the rare chance Creative Assembly will catch this post and fix their problems!

Sim City 2013 – Worst PC Game Release Ever

Sim City 2013 was hyped up for months before it’s recent release, but here it is two days after the release and most people can still not connect to a server to play a game they paid 60 – 80 bucks for. Not to mention they will be kicked out of the game if their servers go down while they are in the middle of building their city, and this game requires that EA games maintain their servers in order to play the game in the future – something they are not obligated to do in the future and will certainly mean this game will be useless as is 10 years from now. I am astonished EA games allowed such an utter piece of garbage to the market in the state it is in, either they have no idea how to stress test servers or they purposefully released a useless product hoping to make the quick buck. I’ve never taken the time to comment on a poor video game or video game publisher before but this is it – I will never buy an EA games product again.
