The Sims series has featured pop songs re-recorded in the fake language of Simlish since The Sims 2, and The Sims 4's Seasons expansion brought a few new ones into the mix. The game’s new version of Nelly’s “Hot In Herre” is just a whole lot.
With every new Sims expansion, there comes new bug fixes. Just before the Seasons expansion launched last week, The Sims’ team pushed through some fixes. Turns out that the expansion itself made a few more bugs, which they’ve fixed yesterday. Some of these patch notes are pretty funny. Here are my favorites.
The new Sims 4 expansion introduces holidays into the game. More importantly, it lets you fuck Santa.
The Sims 4's latest expansion, Seasons, gives the game the rhythms of a passing year. While it might seem like a decorative change, after playing it, Seasons feel essential.
One of the favorite pastimes of The Sims’ community is to talk about how good the older games are. While there are things about The Sims 4 that I don’t love, I’m not as nostalgic as other fans. Every time I think about The Sims 3, for instance, all I can remember is how much that game kinda sucked.
Sims fans are excited as hell for the upcoming Seasons expansion pack. It’s been long awaited, given that every game since The Sims 2 has eventually gotten it, and it has always been a fan favorite. Players have one big problem with what they’re seeing in previews, though: the depth of the snow.
The Sims 4 will get its own Seasons expansion, a long-running Sims tradition, this June, publisher EA said today.
One of the public facing members of The Sims’s dev team took to the forums to address rumors of the end of The Sims 4's development.
The April 17 Sims 4 patch made a host of changes, among them fixing a bug that caused parents to check toddlers over and over. One change that wasn’t noted involved the “Insane” trait that we recently criticized as discordant with the series’ whimsical tone. It is now called “Erratic.”
I downloaded The Sims Mobile to see if it would let me trap a virtual person in a bathroom-less building. Now I’m two working mothers raising a child. I couldn’t be happier, at least not without having to wait out some sort of happiness timer.
10 years after his last game, designer Will Wright is back with a new project called Proxi, a mobile game where players make entire worlds out of past memories.
Starting with The Sims 3, sims have traits to help shape their personalities. Sims can be Romantics, more prone to flirting, or they can be Evil and want to have mean interactions with other sims. In both The Sims 3 and The Sims 4, you can also have sims that are Insane. I hate this trait.
Jungle Adventure is the latest game pack for The Sims 4. It’s a vacation world, meaning your sim can go for a few days when they need a break from regular life. They’ll travel to Selvadorada, a South American-flavored country, where they can take in the local culture and also explore a jungle and its ruins. Come for…
In The Sims 4, you can become an astronaut, make friends with ghosts or turn into a vampire. One thing you can’t do is smoke weed, which is why one player has spent months working on a mod to bring that and other drugs to the game. He’s earning thousands of dollars in donations for his work.
A new game pack for The Sims 4, Jungle Adventure, will be released on February 27th for Mac and PC. You’ll be able to take your sims on some Indiana Jones-esque quests on this one, and apparently also take home some bejeweled skeletons. I’m into it.
The Sims 4’s newest update added ten new, darker skin tones, as well as a new curly hair, to a game that had had not previously reflected the range of skin tones that black people and other people of color have.
The Sims is an open-ended game where you set your own goals, but if you’re out of ideas, you can always try these challenges from the simmer community.
It turns out I am just as bad at laundry in The Sims as I am in real life. But as I made my virtual people load up the washing machine, I did gain a new appreciation for my least favorite chore.
The Sims 4 had a small patch yesterday, and as ever, there were some amusing patch notes.
Woohoo is what sims do in The Sims series instead of having sex. But what is it? You will regret asking that question.
