  • The better question is, will they ever dedicate enough time to fix majority of the bugs, something what they didn't do in TS3. Especially if we speak of game/expansion packs.
  • The only reasons for me to get it are the bob haircut (I'm a sucker for these) and camera improvements. Didn't plan to get it, but will do so when it goes on sale.
  • You should try the first game, it is the most challenging game for sure, especially considering that Sims 1 has no weekends. Played it for many hours non-stop due to grind and haven't even noticed that.
  • There is nothing wrong with associating Muslims with Middle East though. This is what Middle East means: It has nothing to do with bashing since "Middle East" is not an insult. There are some Muslim countries in Southern Asia and in South East Asia too, however, while not all the countries in the Middle East are Islamic.
  • It's not about that. But yeah, should've specified "Western", I guess. Edited that part.
  • Will go with the first one, just for the sake of them, developers, focusing mostly on Middle East cultures when it comes to this, and even then this interest in "diversity" is definitely motivated by current western political climate which makes the situation worse. This is where comes my real problem with this though. The…
  • Would love to see cars at least for the sake of getting UFOs for aliens and the ability to cause destruction, abducting Sims or do other various stuff with it, basically just like in TS3 but with better improvements.
  • Don't really care (never ever heard of it even), in a sense that I might not bother getting it unless it gets heavily discounted and isn't as bad as that Katy Parry embarrassment pack for TS3 (wouldn't get even for free). Did the same thing for TS3 Diesel pack which in the end had a just a couple of good CAS items that I…
  • In short, I want improved Makin' Magic but with properly developed witches/warlocks. With vampires GP they did pretty good job by giving us both classical vampires (the best kind) and modern ones and I hope to see non-castrated witches/warlocks too. However, this generalized name and the theme itself makes me feel that…
  • This is not exactly true assuming you don't use software that does collect your data. If your game is not tied to specific client like Steam or Origin (or basically, in other words, is DRM-free), no one except for MS (if you use Windows OS) and hardware companies can collect your data. Anyway, it's worth noting that…

  • Love classical horror movies and Gothic subculture, so definitely witches. Besides, I feel like witches dedicated GP can quite easily top vampires GP in term of gameplay features. Heck, they were the most developed occult life state in TS3 Supernaturals.
  • There is really no way to prevent your data being shared with other companies unless you just stop using Internet altogether or, well, don't give them your data by keeping it outside of your computer, like on paper, the old fashioned way. Even Intel or AMD CPUs (since 2000s as far as I know) have a backdoor in them through…

  • You might be joking, but I imagine this is how majority of people feel about EA Play. Nothing aside from TS4 is interesting on this list. If it wasn't for The Sims I definitely would not watch it. Honestly, I don't even feel like watching E3 itself unless I'd want to get disappointed by seeing low quality games or how…
  • If we ignore retailers, it still is very logical from marketing point to release a summer vacation related content during summer (expansion even since EA Play seems to be a big deal). Seasons expansion was very on spot marketing-wise, for example, though it would work no matter what time they would release it if we speak…
  • To be fair, expansion pack have more content unlike game packs and thus more possible game features. They definitely should not focus exclusively on exploration and collecting though, I hope they didn't make it the main point of this one. Tropical expansion has a lot potential for good various activities not related to…
  • If they go the same route they did with SimCity even, EA will be left only with sports games which don't have strong loyal fanbase unlike The Sims.
  • It's extremely underwhelming that they decided to drop all those romantic interactions, one of the main reason why I come back to TS2 are how great romance there is. TS4 has a lot of nice romantic interactions, but is still extremely lacking in that regard in my opinion, TS3 is pretty lacking in that aspect too. Surely…
  • It's a risk because this is a huge project which requires big resources, something what AAA developers prefer to use for marketing campaigns. Outside of EA nobody tried to do anything like that (if you discount mid-devs competitors which mostly focused on expanding particular features and pretty much failed to produce the…
  • Well, to be fair they did their research on Europe to make Windenburg and that's what professionals are supposed to do anyway, especially in software development. No one says it's easy and they're getting paid for doing their job for this reason as well.
  • I think it's worth noting that the game was obviously rushed and it's extremely difficult to say that the game was released in an actual finished state. 4 years? I'd count its lifespan starting with toddlers update. Before that the game was in early access/open beta state at best. I mean, we're talking about a game which…
  • I hope they revisit Japan again in Sims 4 at some point. Would love to see Russia as well (they at some point made Mother Russia set for TS3) and something like Forgotten Hallow but bigger (or even Moonlight Falls which is one of my favorite worlds in Sims 3), maybe with witches pack.
  • Haven't played Story series, no idea what to think. But if there is potential role-playing (meaning your character isn't limited to just one specific role) that would be a good start. Otherwise, I like to make my own stories which mostly requires imagination due to some limitations. Detective career was pretty good for it,…
  • Pretty much, it will be much easier to do so since they already plan to make it more than just a rabbit hole career.
  • You gotta agree that it's still not as bad as making Astronaut the highest level in Military career in Sims 3 and at least this line was hilarious (although my first thought about this comparison was politician career). I'm quite surprised that they decided to revisit it actually (I assumed military people or even fans are…
  • So, military career will be actually playable. Now I hope it won't be completely mixed with FBI (at worst I hope they make FBI a separate route). A man can dream. https://twitter.com/SimGuruKate/status/1098397411104432129
  • Except for vampires of course (and aliens which you can also create since they didn't screw up them like in Sims 3), I don't know about you but that pack was a fresh air for me and is among my favorite of them all in the whole series, it is a huge improvement over Sims 3 vampires doesn't matter be it Late Night or…
  • Why would they add various military uniforms then? I mean, recruit uniform is understandable, but officer uniform or sergeant (from the looks of it) is a different story, shouldn't even mention flattop haircut or most importantly a salute interaction. I think what really can happen is that either that career won't be…
  • I can only dream. May as well add brave trait. Though it wouldn't be that good without burglars. Also, that "mother" thing reminds me of System Shock. And actually Alien movie.
