I’m really excited for this. I’ve been playing SimCity since I could remember. Between this and The Sims, I guess you can say that I have developed some sort of “God” complex. Lol. At least that’s what I’ve been told. I love creating things, and watching my creations thrive. Who doesn’t? Building and managing populated areas have always been a favorite thing of mine to do. Some of you might already know this, but for those of you that do not, I used to be really big into the RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise. The first one was amazing, the second one was great too, but the third one sucked, which is probably why there wasn’t a fourth. I hope that doesn’t happen to the SimCity franchise.
From the looks of it, there will be a new neighborhood. But they have to have a new neighborhood, right? I’m really excited about that. I also saw some great new items for CAS and Buy/Build mode. I must admit, I’m getting a little excited. Not like over the top excited, but still excited. It also looked like there were zombies at the end of the trailer. Please EA, let there be a zombie apocalypse. Lol. Here is the trailer:
I remember when I first started gaming when I was younger. These were the kind of games that I was interested in. Shooters used to be my thing. I’m not sure why I outgrew them, because I love watching gameplay of them (such as the one below) on YouTube. This seriously makes me want to buy this game now. If I wasn’t so caught up in Tomb Raider at the moment, I probably would. Hmm… yeah, this will be the next game that I purchase.
Earlier today or yesterday (I’m not quite sure), Amazon.IT added The Sims 3 Supernatural to their list of products. What I know is that it is set to be released on September 7th in Italy, meaning probably September 5th for US and Canada. That is what I know for sure. There are tons of speculations about what is to be included in this new expansion pack like witches, fairies, and werewolves based on a game patch that was released with supernatural-themed content. I stated earlier on this week via Facebook and Twitter that an announcement would be coming soon and this kind of confirms it. They usually have about two months of advertising to do, and this is around the time they need to start their campaign. I guess we will just have to wait another week or so to know everything for sure.
I’m not excited about this EP, nor am I disappointed. I’ve never been keen on adding witches and werewolves to my game, so for me, this is just a “bleh” moment. I was hoping for seasons or something college-themed. This will be thrown into my pile of unused EPs along with Pets and Showtime. The Sims 3 staff always talks about listening to their consumers, but this proves just the opposite. Hopefully Supernatural will surprise me. Maybe I’ll get a little bit more excited once the trailer is released, but until then… whatevs.
