If you’ve spent any amount of time on a Sims 3 message board the you’ve probably heard of the Awesomemod. The problem with most of these message boards is that they rarely give you link to said Awesomemod and there’s usually lots of talk about how amazing…err…awesome the Awesomemod is but no details are given.
Think of it as a secret club that you’re not invited to but people will discuss around you.
Well, you’re about to be in that secret club. You’re welcome.
First off, what is Awesomemod?
Think of Awesomemod as a huge ass cheat console…sort of.
It fixes annoying crap that EA …read more
What really grinds my gears is when I spend all freakin’ day working on Eric Northman from True Blood and I can’t get it right.
The thing is that the “sliders” that come with the default Sims 3 game just aren’t up to par when you’re trying to create a “real” person.
With Alex Skarsgård, he has an odd [though beautiful] face that’s hard as hell the re-create in game and I have been fighting with him for weeks.
I’ll start the game, start on Eric and then get pissed off and stop. I really, really wish that there was a save function …read more
I’ve said before that I’m not overjoyed by the first expansion for Sims 3 – World Adventures – though I am a bit stoked about the France destination. The way I see it is that there is a lot to explore in Sims 3 and adding more content [on the existing maps] would serve me better than adding whole new maps.
I gripe but the more I think about it, the more I realize that I’ll end up getting World Adventures.
The premise of it is interesting and I can already picture Paris in my head with its bistros and China with …read more
BioShock has earned a bit of a cult following amongst even some of the most cynical game fans. Maybe it’s the great story? Maybe it’s the amazing graphics? Maybe, it’s the scary little girls walking around in the dark with butcher knifes?
Whatever the case, BioShock seems to be the game by which other games are compared these days.
I knew it wouldn’t be long before a BioShock fan would create some sort of goody for the Sims 3 and I was right.
These BioShock t-shirts are perfect. They’re crisp, clean and look like you should be able to pluck them out of …read more
So Snooty Sims posted a thing a while back about an expansion called Destination Adventure. I wrote about contacting my media contact at EA and being told that EA had no plans for an expansion at that time.
Liar, liar pants on fire.
If you head on over to the Sims 3 website, you’ll see a press release announcing World Adventures. Thought EA had no plans for a Sims 3 expansion at this time?
Anyway, you get $10 worth of Sims Points [1,000 points] if you grab the expansion – $10 can actually go a long way. You get to go to China, …read more
Don’t roll your eyes! You know that you want Paris Hilton in your Sims 3 game and you knew that it would only take so long before someone would create the “actress”.
@Stefan got Ms. Hilton to a T and I think that you should all download her and toss her into your game to see how things turn out. There’s nothing to download other than Paris Hilton herself and everything that went into making her came right from Sims 3.
SO, go here to ModtheSims to download and have fun.
I like pretty pictures. You like pretty pictures. We all like pretty pictures.
And, with Sims 3 just days away, I see no reason why I shouldn’t share every single pretty picture that I can find. That way you can stare at your computer screen and slowly wipe away the drool that’s running down your chin as you take in the freakin’ awesomeness that is Sims 3.
Pay special attention to how well everything “fits”. I’m sure these were taken on a computer with more processing power than all of my computers put together but check out the great appliances and the …read more
When I first went to SimSidekick.com I wasn’t quite sure what I was getting myself into. The Sims 2 website didn’t go into much detail as to what a Sim Sidekick was so it was pretty much the blind [me] leading the blind [my laptop].
After playing around for a little bit, I guess that it’s just what it says-a sidekick. You enter in your destination URL just like you would in the address bar of your webbrowser and you wait for your “sidekick’s” reaction to the site. You have six different Sims to choose from so if one is annoying …read more

The Sims franchise is going strong at over a million copies sold worldwide, a figure no doubt driven by the release of Sims 2 and all those expansion packs. According to Mike Hickey, an analyst at Janco Partners, The Sims 3 will add at least 4 million more to that tally in 2009.
The basis for the estimate? Well it seems that since The Sims 2 sold 3.5 mil back in 2004 (has it been that long?), the anticipation will probably drive more demand for the third incarnation of the series.
Hickey did emphasize “a …read more
EA released a press release yesterday that details the cool stuff that’s coming up as far as online content is concerned.

The Sims 3 Store: Included with purchase of the game is $10 worth of SimPoints, which players receive when they first register their game online at TheSims3.com. They can use their SimPoints towards downloading exclusive in-game items from The Sims 3 Store …read more
