Welcome Back… and Welcome!

Hello fellow Simmers!!

Simmers 4, simmers 3, and… simmers 2 what the heck? At this point all simmers are welcome. Not that they never were.

Here I am again, attempting to relive a part of my life that I enjoyed so, so very much. Simming. I loved simming, and all that comes with it. I wrote stories; played legacy challenge; built houses and flower shops;  took many unnecessary pictures of the beautiful scenery in the sims game… etc. I did all this mostly with Sims 3 game. I can’t remember if I ever had a blog with Sims 2, but I did played Sims 2 and Sims 1 – the roaches, ew.

Unfortunately for this blog and its readers I quit playing sometime during 2015. I believe. Tried to make a come back 2016… or was it 17? Failed. Life happens. I became a mother, and that was all for me. Why? Does it sound too cliche? Too archaic? Motherhood is underrated. But I’m not here to talk about motherhood.

Let’s talk about coming back to the Sims with Sims 4, possibly late to the party as talks about Sims 5 cloud the air and everyone is going into a panic already. But to be frank, Sims 4 – the game I said I would NEVER play – is really a good game. And I’m just glad to be back simming.

In this blog full of all my Sims 3, I will continue to post Sims stories; legacy challenges; builds; and many unnecessary pictures of the beautiful scenery in the sims worlds. What can I say? I’m sucker for those.

I wish that you would come and join me in this journey. Maybe you used to enjoy my stories before… sorry I never finished them. Typical of a procrastinator like myself. Hey! At least I admit it. And now I will go and hid under the blankets… in shame.

Welcome back… and, Welcome to another adventure with Becca and the Thornhearts!

The Big News

That wasn’t so big after all, since we all knew it was coming right?

Yes, The Sims 4 will be released in 2014 as most of you might already know. I don’t want to rant about it, because I think is pointless to do so, I just want to give out my thoughts and see who else is interested or not among my simmer neighbors. ^ ^

Alright so the news was out yesterday through a conference video “thing” that The Sims 4 is going to be released some time in 2014, and that it has many cool features that our lovely Sims 3 doesn’t have. That is a given since I figure the only excuse they have to yet release another sims game is because they would be offering new tools and features for us to explore. However I think that so far I haven’t heard anything too amazing, aside from the worlds being able to be personalized in game (I’m thinking is something beyond buydebug and placing lots) this is one of the major drawbacks of Sims 3, that you cannot add new roads and change the lots size in game.

There is a picture circulating around with three quirky sims that look rather too cartoonish for it to be anything better than Sims 3. I’m thinking there will be new expressions, and interactions. But I remember when I first bought Sims 3, I thought that aside from the look of the sims (graphically) which was really nice compared to Sims 2, there was nothing very different about them. However, The Sims 3 really was a major jump from The Sims 2. I mean, it literally had super cool new features to offer and I was not -in the least- sad to part from Sims 2. I have to admit, with the news of The Sims 4, I am a little sad that simmers will in time forget Sims 3.

What do you think?

PS: Just read that NRaas will not be modding for The Sims 4. Now, THAT, is sad news ha, ha, ha, ha.
