Sigh, I’m getting pretty bad at keeping up with the poll…but taking on too many projects at once doesn’t help, thus leading me to forget that it even exists! Anyways it’s time to check in on the long overdue poll about the new Sims 3 Shirts from Hot Topic. Out of 220 votes, 204 voted ‘No’ while the remaining 16 picked up the shirts. Going by this poll, I’m not sure if those are good statistics to base how well the shirts are doing overall. I suppose I can understand – I mean $20 for a t-shirt is outrageous – well in my case it is as I often buy shirts at Walmart for about $7. Not to mention in order to get them you have to brave walking into Hot Topic (or be smart and order them online). That place gives me the heebie-jeebies. They have cool shirts but that is about it :/
Ok, let’s jump to this weeks question – how many of you are planning on heading out to pick up The Sims 3 High End Loft Stuff this week? I just came back from the store with my copy – I guess luck was on my side today (as well as a good friend that helped me out in getting one) Below is a poor imitation of the Awesome smiley face that I tried to pull off – FAIL.
Today marks the 10th birthday of the classic ‘The Sims’ game. It was released in the US on January 31, 2000. Were you one of the many who picked it up on that day? I didn’t come into The Sims franchise until August of that year – had no money to afford a $50 game! It’s a funny story behind how I managed to get a copy. It was actually a gift from my friend from back in middle school when he felt bad for pushing me out of my chair in band class and flatting my trombone. There was no way he was able to afford fixing the actual trombone, rather that was worked out between the parents, but he did give me the money to purchase the game 10 years later I still have the original game – even my old trombone (which was fixed). Share your story in the comments!
On January 26, 2010, videogame developer Electronic Arts, Inc. filed to protect the trademark MySims Sky Heroes in relation to “Computer game software; Computer game software downloadable from a global computer network; Video game software”. A second filing for MySims SkyHeroes covers “Entertainment services, namely, providing an on-line computer game; Provision of information relating to electronic computer games provided via the Internet”.
Here’s hoping that this game won’t be a flight sim but rather some sort of Superhero adventure. If Buddy busts open a Superman shirt, I’ll be there day one.
Sigh…Just when you think EA may have actually done something right for a change with adding 1000 Free SimPoints (see below) with The Sims 3 High End Loft Stuff, one of the Guru’s chimed in stating that the registration process produces those points as an error. Yep, it thinks you are registering World Adventures which is why Sliver22 below got free SimPoints:
I got the game 2 days ago.
I noticed that the registration is bugged – upon entering the serial I was notified to have registered World Adventures. Immediately I notified EA, so hopefully this bug will be removed, when the game comes out, because no one is supposed to get SimPoints for registering a stuff pack.
Other than that I noticed no further bugs.
Version number has moved up to 3.0.38, the patch 1.8/2.3 is included.
You know with all of the bad press EA has been getting, you’d think they’d shut their mouths and give everyone free SimPoints. Its not like they have lost out on anything and it helps generate sells for the Stuff Pack. I swear, it’s like they love the taste of putting their own foot in their mouth.
One lucky Simmer by the name Sliver22 has The Sims 3 High End Loft Stuff in hand and is now sharing information about the game. If you can’t wait until Tuesday – the game’s official release date – then read on below for some bits and pieces of new information as well as screens!
Yes you can put fish in your tank that you have caught.
“All My Fishes Aquarium”
“Are your Sims interested in oceanography? Any vegetarian Sims sick of seeing fish get eaten by their friends and relatives? Sims can now fill their homes with the life of the ocean thanks to the All My Fishes Aquarium. Catch fish and put them in your aquarium, instead of the fridge. Just don’t forget to feed them and keep the tank clean”
No hottubs or info about a new EP
it does give you 1000 free Sim points when you register
The guitar sounds different and yes you can vibrate in the heart bed.
Requirements are same as world adventures, it takes 300 MB of free space. This stuff pack is a steal everyone. Its only 20 bucks and you get 1000 sim points, lots of new items. A couple new hairs and clothing items. Its great
I tried coming up with a new design for a wallpaper this evening, but I failed pretty badly so it’s back to the drawing board for me. In the meantime, why not check out this amazing wallpaper made by Centrum Simow titled ‘Around the Sims’? I’ve already added it to my collection of Sims wallpaper, so I eagerly await it to appear during my random wallpaper rotation (a feature that I love in Windows 7)!
Not sure why exactly they decided it would be a wise idea to put them out 2 weeks before the actual day. But hey, it is better than nothing. Enjoy and thank SimTimes for the find.
You may love it or you may hate it…either way Flickr has become the home for all images posted at this site. After 2 months, I took it to the next level and did a complete revamp of my gallery. Surfing the net, I did my best to collect as many images for just about every sim game out there. Now I’m proud to present that after 13,000 images later the improved SimPrograms Image Gallery is fully up and running! Organized into proper sections, you shouldn’t have any issues with finding images for the games you are curious for. Its just one of many new features that this site will introduce for this year Now I get to look forward to playing around with my YouTube profile as well as creating game pages!
