Sims 4: Get Together Trailer

So, we have a new Sims 4 trailer… and I really have no idea what’s going on or what new features are coming.

Anybody else know?

Still not sold. I mean, the game does look impressive, but it just doesn’t appear to have the gameplay that I want: mostly family stuff.

Oh well, time to figure out how to install Sims 3 on my mac side.

Sims $ (er 4) Stuff Pack: Luxury Party Stuff

So I watched this trailer, like I faithfully watch all the announcement trailers, and I’m just not sucked in.

I still occasionally am drawn to the idea of playing Sims 3 (just haven’t had the time) but buying Sims 4?

Nope.

While the first expansion looked neat (active jobs!) it’s still lacking pretty heavily in the important places for me to be sucked in.

Sorry EA, still not sold.

Episode 137 Notes: Ustream Low Carb

Episode 137: So you can pop over here to get the actual episode. Below are the notes I used for the show. Rather than let another episode be eaten I tried using the Raptr screen recording and microphone option. It seemed to work rather well.

We’re back!

Episode 136 Notes… The Eaten Episode

I’m going to blame my lack of familiarity with the website interface of Ustream because the Producer isn’t working with 10.10 beta. I tried to delete some text and instead the delete/backspace key acted like the go back arrow… and thus the entire podcast was gone.

At least I still have my notes?

The Features You Won’t See in Sims 4

Folks should recognize the fact that I’m a huge fan of the Sims series.

Sims 1 was kind of meh, but I spent many an hour on Sims 2 before discovering WoW.

So it brings me great sadness that I’m helping get the word out that Sims 4 is something to be avoided at all costs!

That’s right, as the blog above shows, the game is a mere imitation compared to Sims 2 and 3.

Instead, go buy Sims 3, buy stuff on the store, vote with your wallets that Sims 4 was a broken idea and that you will no longer put up with broken ideas being released as complete games.

Better yet, buy Sims 3 on Steam so you’re giving a the proverbial finger to EA with both hands.

Happy Simming.
