SimCity Catches Herman Cain Fever With $9.99 Price
Remember last week, when current Republican front runner Herman Cain unveiled his ridiculous 999 tax plan and astute gamers noticed that it bore a striking resemblance to the default tax settings on SimCity 4? Good times, good times. And they just got better. Electronic Arts have never met a way to squeeze money out of people they didn’t like, and they just met a new one. In honor of Cain’s plan, they’re making the entire current line of SimCity games available on Origin for $9.99.
Cain continues to insist he didn’t model his plan after SimCity 4. However, the fact that he’s actually forced to defend himself against the charges means that his campaign is totally being taken seriously and he’s likely to win the nomination. Totally. Meanwhile, just in case it turns out my snark is wrong, we’d better hope he doesn’t think the economy can be saved by using the FUND cheat. Because I’ve already tried that.
