So, we are six expansion packs in when it comes to The Sims 3. The Sims had seven EPs, The Sims 2 had eight EPs, and with the large game sizes and demanding graphics, I cannot see EA going past eight expansion packs for The Sims 3. Yes, it is possible, but when thought about logically, it probably will not happen. There are so many things that this game is missing right now. We are missing out on sports, seasons, the college experience, and an Open for Business type of thing. They cannot get to all of these, they just cannot. So this means that we will be missing out on things that will make our games more fun and realistic. Quite frankly, I like Showtime, but I could have lived without it. I never use the careers, only a few of the objects. They also could have kept World Adventures, I never use it, well, I will be in the near future (hint, hint, wink, wink). Still, there is just so much that is missing from this game. The very things that are missing are what made The Sims 2 the awesome game that I fell in love with. I got bored with Pets and Showtime too quickly. I need something that will hold my attention for more than a few weeks. Please EA, step up your game a bit, for the sake of my sanity. – Quxxn
As usual, I’m a few days late. Anywho, EA recently announced their 7th Stuff Pack (including Katy Perry Sweet Treats), The Sims 3 Diesel Stuff. I must say that the first thing I thought was that the clothes were nothing spectacular. To me, they were simple casual clothes. I love the Diesel brand, and have been a fan for years. The clothing aspect was not a total let down. I did see a few interesting things that I could see myself using (depending on how they look in game). Still, nothing that made me go “OMG, that is so cute!”. It could be because it’s only in a photograph though. I don’t know. The furniture looked really nice and modern, which something I like. I tend to overuse my modern items, so something new and fresh in that department is long overdue. I did notice that there were no new hairstyles shown. I’m sure with an SP they will introduce some new ones, they have to, I’d probably cry if they didn’t. Oh well, we shall see when it is released or if they post additional screenshots. I think it will be a nice SP to have, I will definitely pre-order this one.
