GAMING CHANCE TO BE SIMS SELF
is coming to consoles on November 17! While it’s not the first time this life simulation video game has ever been on consoles, it’s not normally the done thing. But with today’s great console power, EA Games are able to bring it over in parity to the original PC version.
It’s reported that the release includes a number of expansion packs. That’s a plus, because if you wanted to own the game and every scrap of extra content, it would cost you $ 1 million. Okay not that much, but this is EA we’re talking about.
I’d expect to pay roughly $ 50 for the base game, but each DLC could go for anywhere between $ 10 and $ 20 each, and there are over a dozen expansions.
The stand- alone game is great, but getting more is a bonus.
I’ve always had a love/ hate relationship with The Sims over the years. It’s a really fun game, but I should be doing my own actual chores instead of the ones in my game characters’ squat apartment. And it’s hard to get to know people at the Avenues Tavern while talking in the incoherent rambling of Sim- speech.
Actually it’s a very similar dialect there. Nor have I ever picked up the Wednesday paper and found “astronaut” in the career listings — shame on you Wednesday! Therein lies the fun of Sims. You can be a slightly more successful version of yourself, just be careful not to set your sink on fire.
