Free MySims game with Taco Bell Kid’s Meal

Enjoy eating at Taco Bell?  Have a kid?  Head on down to your local Taco Bell and grab a kids meal, they are giving away MySims PC for free!  I’m going to be heading down there myself later on to pick one up…I can’t stand the food, but I don’t think my nephew will mind.  :)

September 2010 – New sets at The Sims 3 Store

September is here and it’s the first Thursday of the month, so new sets have popped up on The Sims 3 Store!  It’s actually a great month as we get 2 free sets this time, More Halloween Treats and Speedy Styles hairpieces. The other two sets costs, and personally I like their Loud, Fast, Clash! one.

Sneak peek of artists recording for The Sims 3 Consoles & Late Night

SimCookie picked up on an article from Entertainment Weekly of a few artists that will have their songs featured in Simlish for both The Sims 3 on Consoles as well as The Sims 3 Late Night.  For the console version, expect to hear 3OH!3′s “Double Vision”, School of Seven Bells’ “Dust Devil” and Flo Rida and Jovi’s “Fresh I Stay”.  In the third expansion Late Night,  My Chemical Romance’s “Na Na Na”, Soulja Boy’s “Speakers Going Hammer”, Travie McCoy’s “Need You” and Kelly Rowland’s “Rose Colored Glasses” will be among the select few.

Once again, this proves how out of touch I am with the music of today…

* Note – it’s very possible that EW got the list mixed up, as we heard 3OH!3′s “Double Vision” in the Late Night trailer.  However, I can only report what I am given, so for the time being this is what they have to say.

Girl Gamers UK previews The Sims Medieval

Part of a review from Girl Gamers UK:

Sims can get married and bring up children. But this time around your sim will not die of old age and children will not grow up and leave home. The Sims characters can also participate in a duel. The demonstration showed me the Knight and king in a fighting tournament. Once the duel begins you can control what moves the King makes. They will fight until their health and stamina each reach zero.

On the screen, I’m briefly shown various rooms including the Kings Throne room and, off to the side, a selection of meeting rooms. These rooms are here for appointments and occasionally to entertain visiting diplomats. Inside one of the King’s rooms is a scribe table at which he sits and writes out proclamations which he  can then read out to the people of the kingdom.

The Sims 3 Fast Lane Stuff manual

Reader FouadCher directed me to a post over at the official Sims 3 forum with a user (toptrvsim) showing off the manual from The Sims 3 Fast Lane Stuff.  It appears you can have a relationship with your new vehicle – it’ll show up in your friends tab.  The more you drive the car, the more your relationship grows.  You can even assign a name to your vehicle.  You’ll also get the new Vehicle Enthusiast trait where you can name your vehicle immediately and build a relationship much faster.  Also, the object amount tallies out to 44 items.  So we should at least have 16 additional pieces of hairs and clothes to look forward to equaling the total to around 60 items for the pack!

SNW @ GamesCom 2010 – The Sims 3 on Consoles screens

Rosie from SimsNetwork (as her as her other half, ChEeTaH from The Sims Zone) were some of the lucky few who were able to attend GamesCom 2010 and to preview the latest games from EA.  Rosie was not able to get a chance to try out The Sims 3 for Consoles, but she did manage to snap some of the following screens.
