A new challenge - all lifetime wishes

There are a bunch of different gameplay situations that I have never tried in The Sims 3.  Usually when I create a sim, I assign traits that are similar to my own and I play the sim through lifetime wishes that I think are easy.  There are so many more ways to play than just what I've done, and the most obvious to me is to try to achieve the rest of the lifetime wishes that I've previously just passed over.

So, I started a new type of legacy family, this one will have sims with very different traits than I usually play so that I can work on achieving all of the lifetime wishes that I have available in my game.  I've got all the expansion packs, and a couple of stuff packs, so this will take a while.  I'll keep a page on this blog to show my progress.  I'll also post occasional updates on this family so you can watch it happen to.  I've got this challenge started with a family of four (mother, father and twin daughters); both parents have achieved their lifetime wish and the two children are well on their way.

More to come...

The most efficient way to do laundry

My sim wanted to do her laundry before returning from her term at Sims University.  She gathered up all the dirty clothes from around the house and then went down to the basement to start the load.  But she decided it would be most efficient if she cleaned her own clothes as well…


I can’t wait to see the spin cycle on this one.

Another Sims 4 presentation from E3

So yesterday at the EA press conference, there was a presentation about The Sims 4. That part of the presentation was posted to the interwebs last night, and now the rest of us get to see it.

There's not a whole lot that's new, but there is some discussion of The Sims 4 version of the Exchange (where players can share creations from their games) and that a new sim can be dropped into the game on the fly.  Also at the end of the demo they show a new type of death: death from laughter.

More Sims 4 info now that E3 is on!

Now that EA had their press conference at E3 today, there is some more information. TheSims.com has been updated with a release date of September 2, 2014, and there's this new gameplay video...

Some of the more obvious things I noticed were the Mexican wrestler masks and the cow plant. I'm sure all the sim vloggers will have breakdown videos later today or tomorrow, so watch those too. But in the meantime, now we know when we'll get it.
