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.
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.
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.”
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…
What could possibly make someone buy Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition on Origin instead of Steam? Llama super hero costumes? Sure, go with that. They look a little silly, but once you see them in action, set to dramatic Final Fantasy music, they are completely ridiculous.
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.
Patches are one of the best parts of gaming; you get to play Calvinball in real time, over the span of years. When developers announce their patches, though, they can sound ridiculous whether they’re describing what’s being fixed or introduced.
The Sims 4 has a new patch, and that means more hilarious patch notes. Here are some of the best ones.
My sim Miranda, a chef, came home from work at 1 am. Her husband Marvin went outside to greet her. “Please,” I whispered at my game of The Sims. “Please don’t have sex right here.” My prayers fell on deaf ears. (NSFW warning!)
Once you get over the whole “harbinger of death thing,” The Sims’s the Grim Reaper is kinda hot.
The latest expansion for the Sims 4, Cats & Dogs, hit last Friday and players have already found a way to shitpost with it.
