Today another ‘stuff’ pack came out for The Sims 3, this time representing the 70-80-90′s. I normally stay away from those mini expansions, they rarely offer me anything I actually want unless they are discounted heavily.
My sims family has been doing well. The twin girls are still away at school, the dogs are barking at everything under the sun (and moon) and peeing all over the floor. I’ve been trying to reinforce NOT doing that (you can scold them) but so far neither dog seems to want to give up the “piggy” trait.
It’s winter time now, which means a lot of snowball fights, snowmen, and playing in the snow. I haven’t ventured down to the festival yet, but I will. I also haven’t used the cheat to get more money for my family, although I’d really like to because their house is quite tiny. As soon as I sent the girls away to school I converted their bedroom into an office. If they come home any time soon they’ll have to sleep on the couch, or in the shower or something.
I also noticed that if my sim uses the computer there’s an “online dating” section. I haven’t tried it yet, but you can add your profile, read other peoples profiles, and edit your profile. Each time I play the game I seem to stumble into something that I didn’t realize was there.
A bunch of my friends had started to play, and I was looking forward to reading a bunch of sims 3 stories, but so far there have been relatively few (yes, this is a nudge, get writing). My sim ended up casting a fire spell on a paparazzi who was hanging around outside the house, and they turned into a giant ball of flame and then a blackened ball of ash. It was amusing to say the least. It’s always an exciting time in the household because the female character is a witch, and the male is a werewolf. The twin girls are also supernaturals. Each time a full moon comes around the male sim starts howling and turns into a bristling creature. The dogs of the house (Otis and Taylor) both freak out, probably wondering what that weird smell is.
Still, when I’m feeling anti social and don’t relish the idea of playing an MMO, The Sims 3 is my go-to game. It’s hilarious, comfortable, and barely takes any attention since I can just put everyone on high choice and let them do their thing.
What’s one of your favorite aspects of The Sims 3? Let me know in comments! As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself.
