From The Sims 3 Series

The Sims 3 wins the 2010 Teen Choice Award for GOTY


In a list from The Hollywood Gossip, it looks as if The Sims 3 was picked as Game of the Year (GOTY) by the 2010 Twilight Teen Choice Awards.  Good job EA.  The full list can be found in the above link and you can watch the full awards show on FOX later tonight – check your local listing to see what time it comes on.

I find it funny that most of the awards are awarded to the Twilight New Moon series.  Sims wouldn’t have stood a chance if they had a Twilight video game.  When are these people going to learn, vampires do not sparkle!

UK: Top 20 PC Games Chart ending August 7, 2010

Of course, Starcraft II is #1 again, and more than likely will be for a long time to come, but at least The Sims series is holding strong and will end up reclaiming their top spot.

Easter egg of ‘Late Night’ found in The Sims 3 Ambitions?


This is no guarantee that this is the actual city from The Sims 3 Late Night, but it does pose a very interesting question on why and possibly what it may be.  While looking in the fog in Twinbrook, SIMul8rReviews pointed out this area hidden way in the background. Thoughts?

The Sims 3 Store – new category ‘Transportation’


Due to the release of the Pushing Pedals set in The Sims 3 Store, a new category was introduced to house these items – Transportation.  This section was well overdue, I may fall victim to some of the future items for the category 😐  Once again, credit goes out to Sims 3 Nieuws for picking this up.
