Lol I've never complained about and EP or SP but this?! ***?



LOL I feel the same way. I told my hubby today was the day the Sims died to me. Been playing for over 11 years and I can just see the direction they want to take this brand, and I am not going to be around for it.

I'm amazed by the amount of people that seem to be excited about the EP as it is. I mean, seriously? You all are content with this? It's a few crayons short of a full box, if ya know what I mean.


Wait... really. I have literally seen maybe three people who like this. On the forum index for Showtime (It makes me shutter that that exists) most posts are about "No this is horrible" about two or three are about "Don't judge a book by it's cover" and one is "I like it"... I do know what you mean, though, it's a few slices short of a loaf.

YOU CHOOSE to allowsomeone else game to JUST preform a gig,(might add more in later expansion packs), it's not like "oh no some random person came into my game and ruined my garden", stop complaining. Also if it freezes and crashes the game frequently, they wouldnt of put it in there if it did. By the way the hardcore forum'ers like you, aren't their only fans and buyers and this social aspects may appeal to more people than you think. Lastly EA isn't dumb enough to require you to have Facebook or other social networking sites just to play a game since not everyone has them. No one on here thinks logically anymore, and it's so irritating.



What do you mean, EA isn't dumb enough to require you to have facebook? You are required to have internet, read your base game box. And everything they make freezes and crashes the game, why do you think Twallan and Pescado's mods are so popular? Why are the tech sections full of posts about.... none other than.... freezes and crashes!

lol, where have you been since June of 2009? sleeping?

For me, it's not so much that it will have the social feature that bothers me (provided we are allowed to turn it off because I would never, ever use it), it's that this social feature seems to be the "Big Thing" for this EP. EA is like yeah, okay here's a few new jobs that we forgot to put in Late Night, but now you can connect to FACEBOOK! YAY! Who the flip cares? Has anyone ever even requested that? I just don't get it. Of all the thousands of wonderful, seemingly easy-to-implement ideas on the forums, they give us facebook. Seriously. I could just cry with disappointment.

Unless it is gifted to me or EA releases more info about it that makes it seem worthwhile, this will be the first EP I won't get since the original Sims came out. And it's not because I'm scared of facebook or because I wanted something else, it's because I literally do not see one single cool thing that would make it worth my money.

Before you get upset, I would wait and see how this social function works first. I am going to think ahead for EA and they might do it and thay might not. I do not think just anybody can enter one's world without permission. It might have a system where one requests to enter or is on a friend's list and even then they might still need permission. If it is like that it might be more acceptable to some and I can accept that even though I will not use that function. Other games are using the features that EA is using but not with Facebook(hate facebook) Dead Island does it even if I am not in multiplayer I have other people coming into my game. Gaming is evolving and with social networking it really has evolved. This was bound to happen and sadly it is not going away.

I am willing to bet my life savings that the only people willing to buy this are under the age of 14.....And just an added bet, the first Sim they'll be making is Lady Gaga.






Wrong or right, the game is still lame.

This could actually be the best thing you'll ever read......Even if it's not it's worth a go!

I'm really hoping they cap the EPs at 8. There's no reason to go on with this mess, it's just hurting the franchise more and more as you can see for yourselves just by looking at the forum. I understand someone reading this may be thinking it's a great EP and there's nothing wrong with it but the amount of people ranting over it is the highest ever seen with an EP from The Sims (1, 2, AND 3). I remember at first there was something with University. Wasn't as bad as this though.

EA, just release 2 more crap EPs after this and take all the time you need to perfect the Sims 4, please.

And if the Sims 4 is online, forget you, EA, because I won't be buying it.

I will! I will buy it and I will have house party competitions with friends that I have met in the sims forums. I already add their avitars to all my worlds. It would be awesome to invite a sim friend over to see the new living room set and to shoot some pool together. I LOVE that the pool table and jutebox are back! Awesome, and now my Alisha Keys and Robin Thicke can perform togther FOR REAL!

I like the idea of playing in your friend's game, if that is correct, but everything else seems already done, and should have been in late night.. I am disappointing. I will however not be disappointing if they include weather in this ep! which i highly doubt.

This. I like the sound of careers, it sounds like it could be a fun expansion, but I probably won't get it because of the social features (unless they're completely optional and you aren't penalized in any way for not participating).

I really hope that this whole online social thing isn't the direction that EA is going to take with the sims series. I hope that this is just a bad experiment that they'll learn from. I don't know who thought that the whole online features were a great idea, but clearly it wasn't.
