I read in an article dating from December that SimCity games would be saved online. I have not yet bought the game, and I wonder if this is true. It would be bad enough to be forced out of the game if my connection is lost, but I would be edgy to not be able to save my game after I notice a lost connection, as I am pretty bad at saving regularly and would hate to lose my whole session after being kicked out.
So, is the game really saved online? If so, is there a way to have some kind of backup on my computer? I suppose it wouldn't be so bad if there was an auto-save thing. Is there?
