If you ask most kids [and some adults] what they think about the idea of their parents having sex, most will shudder and some might even gag.
This “fear” seems to be almost universal and Maxis has put an interesting twist on the whole issue. Not only is the opening text funny but the whole video made me chuckle. Also, as time goes on and people get more comfortable with Sims 3, we’re going to see a lot more quality machinima using Sims 3.
Watch this “horror” video and try not to laugh.
These screens are new to me and I decided that I’d share them with you just in case they’re new to you as well. I know that the “Bella and Mortimer” screen has been around for a while with lots of speculation about who the people in the picture are. Your guess is as good as mine but “mortbell” is part of the file name. Very, very interesting…
My favorite screenshot is the last one in the cemetary. I can’t wait to get my hands on this game and see what it’s like to be able to play ghosts. I wonder …read more
I know that you guys have TONS more questions to ask Maxis and I have all of them filed away for use at a later date.
I emailed my PR contact and was told [very nicely, I might add] that the team is working right now on producing the best product that they can so they’re not accepting any more questions at this time. The door wasn’t totally shut as far as the possibility of getting the questions answered at a later date-just not right now.
EA/Maxis is lucky to have fans who are so interested in this upcoming game and I …read more
So after the uproar created by the announcement that Sims 3 is being delayed for a few months, we now have another little firestorm on our hands.
Are there “real” vampires in Sims 3?
These screens are floating around the interweb right now of a male and a female vampire:
They look like “real” vampires but Maxis has come out and said that they were user created characters and that though you can make your Sims look like vampires, they won’t function like vampires like we have in Sims 2. [EA has clarified that while you can indeed make a Sim that appears …read more
I didn’t want to believe that the reported delay was going to affect the US. I wanted to stay in my little fantasy world and believe that the delay would only hit the foreign markets and that the US would be able to thumb our noses at everyone else. [Not very nice but we were SO close to the release date!]
And then, I saw this in an EA press release:
“The June launch combined with the break-through game the team is building gives us the perfect runway to create awareness for The Sims …read more
Since I posted Britney Spears yesterday, I decided to show some “lip love” and present to you this collection of lipsticks named after Britney Spears songs. All seem really natural and actually look like something that a “real” person would wear – not some crazy fake looking lipsticks.
As always, bruno did a fantastic job with these.

There’s something to be said for saving money. Most people right now are holding on to their cash like never before and if you can save $5.99 why not, right?
Well, when it comes to digital downloads through EA, pay the extra $5.99 and get the extended download rights. If you don’t purchase the extended download rights then you’ll be able to download your game again for free for six months. If you decide [and you should] to pay the $5.99 then you’ll be able to download the game for two years.
Let me explain why that is important.
I got a laptop …read more
Looking for that perfect gift for your favorite Simmer?
Are you looking for awesome Maxis created custom content for cheap?
Look no further than the Sims Cash Card.
The card can be purchased from Walmart and 7-Eleven [anyone else find that odd?] and come in 10 dollar increments which will buy you 1k SimPoints at the Sims 2 Store.
Right now tons of things are 75% off and new holiday items are being added.
You can also redeem the cards to download a new Sims game.
I haven’t seen them around our local Walmarts yet but they are available so keep looking.

Maxis is releasing yet another stuff pack – Mansion and Garden Stuff.
Normally I would roll me eyes at this since Sims 3 is just around the corner. However, this stuff pack has some things that I’ve been wanting for a while: ceiling fans, double staircases and solar panels.
The pack comes with three themes: Moroccan, Art Deco, and Second Empire and all kinds of garden/flower elements to really spruce up your sims’s house.
The pack is officially released on the 17th of November but can be pre-ordered from EA’s website.
