Twinfinite writes, "I hope you weren’t looking forward to sadistically drowning your Sims this September because the fourth installment of the popular life simulation franchise won’t feature pools at all in the base game."
"won’t feature pools at all in the base game" "Additionally, the newest chapter of the series won’t include toddlers" Are they having a laugh, they are REMOVING features from past Sim games ... ... Course they are...it's EA You're supposed to add onto your games and the past expansions not take away from the core game.
These should be standard features. Having a pool is a big part of the sims. It has been there since day one. I bet that crazy drunk whooping girl isn't whooping anymore
Microtransactions confirmed that's why... F**k you EA. Only you can ruin great things.
I was really hoping EA would add MORE stages to the sims' life cycle (e.g. child becomes prepubescent-teen, adult becomes middle-aged, elderly becomes extremely elderly, etc) to make it a little bit more realistic. It really sucks that they seem to be REMOVING parts from previous Sims games instead. It just...makes no sense. Why even bother making another Sims game if they have no intention of making it bigger and better than the last game!
The fact it looks just like the Sims 3 in some ways adds to the fact that they havent put much effort into this at all. After Sim City you would think they would of made Sims 4 the best Sims game ever. Not trying to f*** us over again
Don't need to drown them. Just build a wall around them and leave them without food or any other basic necessities. The lack of toddlers is puzzling though. Why are they removing features that were part of previous base games?
The lack of toddlers is obviously a new way to kill your pregnant female sims. They are about to give birth when suddenly the start convulsing and BAM, a grade school kid bursts through their chest like in alien. In an even more shocking twist the kid speaks just one line in English (or whichever language you have it set to) "The Lannisters send their regards".
Unless you pay $49.99 for the upcoming sims "living the life" expansion pack, the first of 73 to come.
This... They just don't "get it" when it comes to their expansion packs. Literally ALL of that should be in the main game.
Calling it now, there will be a 'Poolside/Summer stuff' expansion/stuff pack coming from EA in 2015 to eat at your wallets. EA need to be able to milk as much from you as possible with the Sims, so removing stuff that should be there and putting it in overpriced addons is always fun. (Case and point, Sims 3 with it's 20+ expansions.)
... For real? That's like taking half the fun out of a Sims game! And no pools at launch? Really? -_- Next they'll announce that it's always online because their maths are 'WAY TOO HARD' and must absolutely be computed 'WTHIN DE CLOUDZ'. gee.
I'm really worried.. I did Enjoy Sims 3 but Sims 2 has a place in my heart. I'm seeing a Hot Summer expansion approaching.
what the f*** babies and pools have been in there from sims 1 not impressed.
So the trailer with that guy dying from laughter is telling us that killing is hard?
I don't 'kill' my sims for no reason, I kill them to progress my generations of family. I kill sims to progress my "story." It's part of the role-play. I like having a single sim, then he gets married, and he has a bunch of kids, one of which is usually me, then I focus on him, and his family, and his kids. Sometimes in order to move along the game an 'accident' must occur to one of the family members.
Haha xD That's exactly how i played Sims 3. Good times.
Several steps backwards. Good, that's one less game I'll need to buy.
And here comes another cash grab from EA! Now, new and improved with less features and more DLC! Yay? Seriously folks, buy a used copy of an older game if you feel the need to play Sims...but DONT give EA ANY of your money until they PROVE to us that they value us as customers and not just a piggy bank for their shareholders! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
What no toddlers and pools? What in the bloody hell. I'm staying with Sims 3. Incredible EA. Cutting features that has been in the sims game since Sims 2 (10 years) for purpose of expansion pack is just pure greed. Do not buy Sims 4 people. Boycott it to show EA that we will not tolerate such practises.
I believe Sim City taught us all that
yea seriously. EA is just messing everything up
