Buy Simpoints bundle during June 2010, get free goodies for your Sims 3 profiles

For the month of June, those who purchase SimPoints will be rewarded with free items for your Sims page.  You know my opinion on this so no need to beat a dead horse any more than I have to.  Guess I should look on the bright side as at least now they are increasing more items for more points you spend.  Thanks to Frankie for letting me know about this.

The Sims 3 Ambitions concept art possibly hinting at The Sims Medieval?

We reported about the fact that EA registered a number of domains relating to The Sims Medieval the other day, and the following concept art could put us at one step closer to confirming the title.  While browsing thru the game files, SimFans discovered around 500 pieces of concept art used for the drawing table in The Sims 3 Ambitions.  Many portray scenes from World Adventures and character arts, but there are some drawings that are medieval related.  Of course, there are two instances in Ambitions where a Sim comes out of the Time Machine donning the clothes from the Medieval ages, but seeing actual pieces of scenery may possible be giving us a sneak peak at what is to come from The Sims franchise. … Continue Reading


Spore Islands Facebook game to end its run

Sad news to report.  The official Spore game on Facebook – Spore Islands – will be shutting down the game’s server early in July.  Such a shame as I still play that game everyday – in the morning and evening.  As of right now I hold the 5th spot for global rating and the 10th spot for global points.  All good things have to come to an end, wish they could keep it up as it’s pretty much the only game I play on FB.… Continue Reading

Official PR: Artist ‘Starman’ immortalized as a Sim in The Sims 3 Ambitions

I think I’ll keep my comments to my own self about this guy.  Let’s just say what happened to singers these days (Lady Gaga, this guy, etc).  Talk about some…bizarre characters.  Anyway, if you want to download Andrew Stone or ‘Starman’ from what I gathered he’s called, you can do so at the official Sims 3 exchange.

GamerZine – Interview with Grant Rodiek, Producer of The Sims 3 Ambitions

InfiniteSims spotted a new interview via GamerZine (Part 1, supposedly) with the producer of The Sims 3 Ambitions, Grant Rodiek.  The topic of DRM (Digital Rights Media) came up, something in which we haven’t heard about in awhile.  Grant had much to say about it:

GZ: How does Sims 3: Ambitions tackle the problem of piracy and DRM?

GR: I remember reading the boards the other day and one guy was talking about the stylist career and how much he enjoyed playing it in Indonesia.
