Confirmed for worst stuff pack name - y not Decades Stuff
In a Maxis live stream, the next stuff pack for The Sims 3 was confirmed as The Sims 3: 70's, 80's and 90's Stuff. As Maxis put it in the broadcast: It’s a big stuff pack full of all kinds of crazy, awesome and radical content, from the last few decades. This awesome stuff pack is all about taking it back to yesteryear and styling your Sims, in their worlds, with the iconic looks that shaped these Decades. With “The Sims 3: 70′s, 80′s & 90′s Stuff”, you will be able to warp your Sims back to the past. It is set to be released in January 2013.
What do you think of 70s, 80s, and 90s Stuff?
On the Wiki
This month has seen a few staffing changes here on the wiki which you should probably be aware of. First of all, I'd like to a welcome AsherEire, TheSims23 and Freedom50000 to the admin team. On the topic of staffing, DanPin has voluntarily resigned from his position.
In other news on the wiki, there's a bunch of discussions down at the community portal that could use your input, including a discussion on featured articles, and a discussion on what is consensus?. Discussion on the portal as a whole has been really dry lately, so don't hesitate to weigh in. It doesn't matter if you have one edit or 1000 edits, are a veteral editor or have just joined, we need everyone's input - these discussions help shape the wiki!
Also, I'm trying a new format for news this month, instead of the traditional point form format on the sidebar thing. Feel free to leave me input on how you'd prefer it.
In The Sims
It's been a pretty dry month this month. The recent Maxis Live Bradcast is the only thing of interest which happened, during which the announcement of 70's, 80's and 90's Stuff was made, as well as the announcement of Monte Vista, a new town set to be released in a couple of months. There was also an incident on the broadcast which sent the rumor mill into overdrive, hinting and more or less confirming a University EP fr The Sims 3. No real word on it, it could have been EA trolling us for all we know. Watch the event in full here! props to SimPrograms for posting it
Dusting off The Sims
I recently have had many conversations on the IRC Channel and Wiki Chat about the respective qualities of The Sims, The Sims 2, and The Sims 3. So much comes to mind when I think of each game, and they really are all great games in their own way. But The Sims (a.k.a. The Sims 1) will always hold a special place in my heart.
I own The Sims Complete Collection, just as I have owned every expansion pack in the original series. In fact, I've had The Sims installed on every computer I've ever owned, dating all the way back to 2000 with the very first game.
An extreme bout of nostalgia, brought on partly by ongoing conversations, and partly by listening to the music from the original game, has ultimately resulted in my firing up The Sims for the first time in many months. For all of you who have never ever played The Sims, I hope I can accurately describe to you the game in all it's 2-D, isometric-perspective glory. To those lucky souls who have played The Sims, I hope I can make you remember the good times, like your first Sim date, your first family vacation, your first house party, and so much more... maybe you'll even fire up The Sims for yourself and party like it's
I'm excited to continue to experiment in the game, and I hope you do too. I'll be documenting my play-through on my personal blog, and I hope to be back next month to write more about my new experiences in The Sims! Thanks for reading.
