Another Upcoming Sims 4 Preview
Hi snovve :) If the upcoming Sims 4 preview in The Sims Official Magazine that’s “coming soon” is being released around the same time as the German Official Sims Magazine article we know is being published in June then, yes. It’s likely — I can’t know for sure — that they’ll have the same information.
There’s usually some small, unique bit of information in each article that sets them apart but the previews are largely the same and convey whatever advertising points EA wants to drive home about The Sims 4.

P.S. What EA means by “coming soon” is anyone’s guess. They’ve yet to deliver on their “soon” promises from Gamescom last year so don’t start holding your breath now. You’ll die.
Ugh. Bring on the news already, EA!

Thank you so much! I really appreciate that :)
I totally agree—Sims 1 is still my favorite in the entire series <3

YES. Yes, Lord please!
RT/Reblog if you’d like more flamingoes than cockroaches in 2014!
Yes! PLEASE make TS4 as wonderful as TS1. TS3 was wayyy too bland and easy. Bring back the flamingos and the cockroaches and Bella Goth (as an adult, as pictured here), and the genie, and TS1’s campy/adult humor, and… and… and… please pretty please give us a “Create-A-Sim” program that runs separately from TS4 and that has CAStyle in it for those who want it. I agree with the developers that CAStyle should not be in the game because it makes the game lag too much, especially in CAS. Phew! Can’t wait for 2014!
Chris Roomies and Bob Newbie [it rhymes!]
So Bob Newbie’s creepin’ behind showed up one night. Without being greeted/invited inside, he bypassed the front door and walked confidently into the backyard where he helped himself to a plate of dinner that was on the table. I literally looked at the screen like, really?!
Then Bob stood over Chris and watched her do bench-presses like the pervert he is.
It was weird, but the more I looked at them together, the more I realized: Chris needs a MAN! So I made them start talking, and before long they were in love <3 <3 <3
I mean, he’s married to Betty Newbie but whatever.

Thanks SO much for that!! I went to the site and it’s wonderful :)
A bold statement if many of the official forums are to be believed but let me take a minute of your time to tell you why the lack of an open world wouldn’t be a deal breaker for me…
I TOTALLY agree, and after playing The Sims 1 for the past couple weeks… the experience is totally different from The Sims 3. I too thought that an open neighborhood was what I had always wanted—until I got it. Your description of townies in the open neighborhood community lots as “zombies” is VERY apt. While in TS1, things are bright and lively, in TS3 I am free to move around…but nothing is happening.
Not having an open neighborhood in TS4 is not a deal-breaker for me. In fact, I’m actually starting to hope that we get a sectioned neighborhood with load sections.
I TOLD YA’LL I was going to do it! The Sims Complete Collection FTW! Yasss! Installing this has been the best part of my day, let me tell you… :/
Expect a nostalgic rant soon—both here and on the Sims 3 forums
