    An odd reference, but interesting all the same.

    I thought so, too. Especially given Jobs' typical "gaming isn't for Apple" position.

    This is cool and all, but the DRM for this game is a bleeping nightmare.

    This is a completely new game for the Mac and PC, not iOS devices. I'd recommend taking a look at some gameplay videos so you can get an idea of how different it is.

    Nice little Easter egg there. It comes to no surprise when you mention server errors.happens with every EA game: FIFA 13, battlefield 3, tapped out, etc.

    Thanks for the clarification, buddy... Now this should be a worthwhile game for Mac OS users, having been deprived of so many titles that PC folk are enjoying!
