The Sims 4: Another Teaser by The Sims Team
Posted by The Sims 4


As you may remember, SimGuruGraham showed off some “teaser” photos of The Sims 4 Developers in the July 23rd Broadcast. To quote Graham, the photos give us a “little taste” of what’s to come at Gamescom.

Since the chat, The Sims Team has shared teasers (here, here, here and here), as well as the photo and caption below.

#TheSims4’s big reveal is coming! Join us on Thurs, 8/22 at 8AM PDT for #TheSimsLB live from Gamescom 2013!



Sims 3 Store: Dreams of India Video Overview

Dreams of India Pictures

Okay, I admit it. I squealed for joy when I heard that this set was coming out.
I had planned a short blurb, but… this set is simply gorgeous. There’s nothing more I can say that just doesn’t sound superfluous compared to the images. It also can fit well with existing India sets. So, really, if you’re in love with the other India items, this set sells itself and nothing I can say will sell it any more. But, I have included some shots I took myself so you can see this set for yourself, using a house from Dragon Valley.
Note that, towards the end of the female outfits, I am mixing previous India content with current; when you see the shirt with the large square amulet, that’s when I’m mixing the hairstyle and current outfit pieces with old.

Ask Your Questions! (Closed)

As I mentioned on Monday, I will be attending Sims Camp at Gamescom in Germany. During this event I will have a chance to play The Sims 3 Into the Future, and The Sims 4. I want you all to know that I am taking on the responsibility of going as your “representative”, so I want to take your feedback with me to the event. In this post I want your concerns, questions, input, ideas, and excitement.

Please take a moment to read the ENTIRE post before commenting. I would like for the comments to be as organized as possible, to make my life a wee bit easier. :) 

When commenting, please SEPARATE your questions for each game. If they are all jumbled together it makes it difficult for me to separate. Use the enter & space buttons! 

Please try to keep all your questions in ONE comment. You are allowed to ask as many questions as you want, but please take some time and gather them all before posting. If you remember more questions at a later time, you can then post them in a separate comment. 

I will be using my flight time to Germany to organize all the questions by category. Once I am at the event, I will try my best to gather the appropriate information to answer your questions. Aside from the regular articles I will be posting on game features, I will post a Q&A article with your questions answered. With that said, begin posting your questions!

The Humble Origin Bundle charity sale
Posted by News

The following tweet was shared by Humble Bundle today:

The Humble Bundle is a deal between EA and five charities, where players pay what they want for a bundle of games and EA donates the proceeds to charity. Donation amounts are entirely up to those who donate, and all they’re hoping is you donate at least five dollars (American) to charity.
The game codes are all for PCs, with Sims 3 being the only one that also has a Mac code. Those who donate are guaranteed to get Dead Space, Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, Crisis 2 Maximum Edition, Mirror’s Edge, Dead Space 3, and Medal of Honor. If you donate and beat the average (which was $4.71 when I looked), you will also get The Sims 3, The Sims 3 Starter Pack, and Battlefield 3.
The charities are the Human Rights Campaign, Watsi, the San Francisco AIDS Foundation, the American Red Cross, and the American Cancer Society.
Update to clarify information: According to an Origin tweet, anyone in the world may participate as long as they have Origin.
