The Sims 3 Ambitions Prima Guide cover and info

Come on Prima, what gives?  Your books have been pretty good.  The Sims and the beginning of The Sims 2 series had fat, thick Prima Guides.  Then during the end of The Sims 2 lifespan, they switched to the normal tall and skinny style.  Spore Galactic Adventures showed off a new style of a pocket-sized guide…and you quickly changed back to the tall and skinny guides once again for The Sims 3 and World Adventures.  Now you want to throw a new style out there with metal binders?  This doesn’t look pleasing at all!

Players can now experience some of the most exciting and varied jobs. In The Sims 3 Ambitions, players can choose to hunt down vengeful spirits as the ghost hunter, invent brilliant and potentially destructive gadgets as an inventor, craft glorious masterpieces as a sculptor, and solve riveting cases by any means necessary as an investigator with dozens of cases to solve and numerous clues to find. Additionally, players will be able to change the look and feel of their town by becoming an architect and directly affecting the neighborhood around them leveraging Build and Buy mode. The stylist career and new tattoo system allow players to make over their Sim neighbours in fashionable or catastrophic ways. For the first time, players will be in charge of how their Sims career progresses and decide if they will work for good or evil, pursue creative endeavors or technical affairs, climb to the top quickly, or be a slacker. The future of a Sims success or failure is entirely in the hands of the player.

  • Every career path explored! Find out what your Sims can do and how they should do it.
  • Details on the tasks your Sims will need to undertake to be a success in their chosen field.
  • New build tools explained to make your town over to your exact liking.
  • This guide will be part of the Essential Guide series. Printed in a smaller trim size and spiral bound. The ease of use of the spiral binding helps keep players at their place while playing.

Thanks to InfiniteSims for reporting this!


5/3/10 – Poll results & new poll

Sorry about not getting to the poll last night.  Had my hands full working on other things :)  Let’s see what the last poll results were:

What’s your opinion on the direction of The Sims 3 series with its mission-based objectives?

  • Finally, it gives my sims something to do! (71%, 162 Votes)
  • Let us be free of this! (29%, 67 Votes)

Total Voters: 229

You know, I’d figure the number for those not liking the mission-based objections to be larger than what was tallied in the poll. I personally love the added objectives giving us more to do. I mean, the base simulation game is still there, they’ve just added things to do for the players that want more. ;)

For this week’s poll, how many of you downloaded the Renault/Toyota EV pack that was released?

The Curtis Paradis Show – The Sims 3 comes to consoles

I’m not too keen on The Curtis Paradis Show, but I wished I had his courage to actually do videos like these.  Nobody wants to see my goofy self though so I’ll just stick to writing. ;)

Props to Sims 3 Nieuws for the video link


Einstein – the cutest horse you will ever see

Let me take a minute here to go off topic and to share with you the following video about the world’s smallest horse – Einstein.  Born on Aprill 22, 2010 in Barnstead New Hampshire at Tiz A Miniature Horse Farm, Einstein came into this world weighing only 6lbs and only 14 inches tall.  I’m more of a mule/donkey person, but I can’t resist…this is too adorable and without a doubt should put a smile on your face :D


Upcoming ‘Sims 3 Hairstyles’ for May 2010 update on The Sims 3 Store

The Sims 3 is currently showing off a few sneak peaks of a few hairstyles coming to The Sims 3 Store in May 2010.  Wish instead they’d focus more on the expansion rather than their store, but I suppose something is better than nothing.  I’ll keep adding to this post when more pictures are made available.
