Note: I bought the game from Origin so I could get the British skinning. Apart from the real and valuable negative issues presented on reviews regarding this game (ie removal of features, small zone size, traffic woes etc) the vast majority of the "reviews" found here are just plain silly. DRM as a product protecting utility is not new and is here to stay. It has existed in the video game industry since the beginning in some form or another. The video game industry is a business after all and has worked at protecting its assets and maximizing profit since the days of Sierra Adventure games on. The big problem is how do companies protect assets in a digital download era?
Companies implementing "always on" into games as "DRM" have recently had issues properly identifying initial sales of the product they offer and people are voicing the opinion in a negative way. These companies used various tools and events to try to gauge day 1 buying and built infrastructure accordingly. The main problem with this method is that the two games of note (D3 and this game) have had sales that eclipsed the models built by the companies. The typical response for this would be something in the realm of: "Well they should have accounted for this in some way". How do you appropriately account for this though? The companies used open betas, pre-orders, etc to try to gauge day 1 sales but this proved to be highly ineffective because the gaming population is a fickle one. As a businessman you will want to try to build the service up to prepare for the onslaught of gamer players into your game. But what if this population is magnitudes less/more than what you built for? You will then have either wasted money or have server melting issues. It is not easy.
In the end does this game merit a 1-star rating? I do not see how you can logically state that. But sadly this game falls into the ME3, D3, DeadSpace3 category and will thus get bombed by the masses.If you are on the fence on whether or not you want to buy the game I suggest you ask yourself the following questions: "Do you ever have your computer offline for extended periods of time while playing games?" I would wager the vast majority of you would say "no". And if you are concerned about the actual game play concerns brought up in reviews on this website I suggest you go to Youtube or twitch.tv and actually watch game play videos.
For me the game is definitely Simcity and extremely fun and a great way to spend a few hours with friends online.
I don't really review products, but I wanted to take some time to review this product because I see so many one star reviews that simply say it doesn't work without giving any context as to what the person did as far as diet and exercise. I think the misconception is that this is some miracle supplement that is going to just magically make the pounds drop off. Anyone knows that if such a thing existed, we would all be thin and not having weight problems. So here is my review thus far. I started taking this on 9/15/13. I weighed myself 5 days later on my regular weekly weigh-in day (Friday) 9/20/13. I've already lost 3 pounds. This is what happened during those first 5 days.
Some background on myself. I am a 28 year old female. I work a full-time desk job at home = extremely sedentary during the day. I do, however, try to make up for that by exercising 4-5 times a week for a minimum of 45 minutes. I do exercise that elevates my heart rate (eliptical, stair master, kickboxing class, spin, etc). My diet is not the greatest. I am not a clean eater and find it hard to get fruits and vegetables into my diet. However, I do try to limit my calorie intake since I move very little during my work day. I don't drink soda and I have junk food and fast food sparingly if not at all. On the weekends I do let loose on the reins. Usually Saturday I will have an unhealthy dinner and sometimes I will have 1-2 alcoholic beverages. Long story short, I'm just trying to get the point across that although my exercise routine is pretty good and I am making a conscious effort to watch what I eat, the weight would not budge. I get it, it's probably the weekends that kill me, but I think most of you would agree that not having a cheat day makes life extremely boring and more stressful overall on your weight loss goals.
Soooo...I start taking this Garcinia Cambogia last Sunday, Sept 15th. Here's how I felt:
*I did notice I was in a better mood. Something that is important to note is that I felt NOTHING when taking these supplements. I've taken diet pills before and you can feel everything from heart palpitations, jitters, irritability, stomach aches, etc. I wasn't sure if this stuff was even working, but of course my mind changed when Friday rolled around and I weighed in. I am extremely happy to be taking something that does not cause me any negative side effects. That's not to say everyone will have the same result because I'm not a doctor and I honestly don't know, but I sure did not feel anything negative as a result.
*I lost my food cravings. I usually find that once I crave something, I HAVE to have it. This was not the case. I didn't feel like I was fighting with myself to not reach for a salty handful of potato chips. Even when Saturday came and it was time for me to have cheat day, there wasn't anything I was specifically craving.
* It did suppress my appetite. I was not hungry as frequently. Normally in the mornings, I'll drink my protein shake that I have every day for breakfast and then not too long after I've finished it, I'm already wanting lunch. Now that I've been taking this product, it'll hold me over at least 1-2 hours longer which is amazing. When I'm starting to feel hungry, I know it's time to take the next round of supplements in preparation for my next meal. Doing so actually helps hold me over even longer. When I take this product immediately after my workout when I know I have am empty stomach, it helps me from not wanting to eat the entire fridge when I get home which is also great. That has been one of my biggest challenges, controlling my eating after a workout.
*I actually lost weight. Like I mentioned earlier, after only 5 days I lost 3 pounds. I struggle with weight loss and I know it's probably because of my desk job and occasional unhealthy eating habits. My weight usually stays the same, or goes up or down 1-2 pounds. It is extremely frustrating considering that I do go hard at the gym and never sacrifice my workouts. I know it's all about lifestyle change in your eating habits to lose weight, but I feel like I've been doing as much as I can to watch what I eat without making myself super unhappy.
Anyway, I know this was a lengthy review, but I really wanted to show that this product does work from the perspective of someone that is fairly human and not a health freak. Whether or not it will continue to work, I don't know, but I will definitely try to come back and post updates of my progress.
