Let's give credits where credits are due. Today's SimGurus, Matt and Shannon, were EONS better and actually resemble normal people who play the sims, not just weird bros.
First TS4 stream that did not bore me to tears and in fact it felt a lot closer to what most people play the game, instead of being weird for the sake of being weird.
First time in a long while the game was shown in a more positive light, to my taste.
I liked that the Travel With command works with sims you have barely met. It helps streamline the game play, so plagued with loading screens that chop everything up.
I hated parties had goals (TS4 seem allergic to sandbox), but I was reassured regular parties are still a thing.
Christopher Whitwick looked like a teen, proving once again TS4 lacks not only toddlers, but teens, which are mere variations of adults. Confusing and disappointing.
Hair still looks atrocious, the worst since TS1. But the builds and environments are really beautiful, and so are the sims if you ignore the helmets they wear in lieu of hair.
Clipping is still disgusting and shows how rough and unfinished the game is. After woo-hooing Bella and Mortimer walk right through each other. I guess better routing and smarter sims are other promised features affected by the "things change" policy.
The little boy was downright adorable, to again, give due credits. Cooking is very well done too.
I really hope the last streaming, shows a bit more of family play. It still feels to young-adult-oriented.
Matt and Shannon, good job! Please, come back!
