Oh, Super ... Natural!

Remember all those months ago when you were first playing Late Night and thinking "why aren't my vampires more intriguing?"  Well, apparently it's because EA wanted to string out interest in the supernatural theme for several months so they could bring in as many pre-order dollars as possible with one expansion pack - TS3 Supernatural.  As far as I can work out, the only vaguely intriguing thing about the vampires is that the SimGurus aren't allowed to talk about them.


The pack does look good but I'm not getting too excited just yet, not least 'cos the Sims team seems to be more than excited enough for the rest of us.  Possibly at the thought of all those lovely pre-orders.  And it's a definite positive that they haven't tried to shove KP in there somewhere.  Yet.

Seriously though, it's all the bits I loved (and still love) playing in Sims 2.  Not that I was hanging out for them in particular but it's nice to see some of the quirky stuff back.  I think I'll avoid the official forums for a while so the pre-release speculating, wittering and bickering don't put me off. 

WTF?

I was trying not to go all ranty about some nasty stuff I've read lately but now I've come over a bit ... WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH SOME PEOPLE?

If you don't like what a certain blog writes about you then (a) don't keep reading it, and (b) stop giving them things to write about. Creating obsessive blogs or 'secret' forum posts about that blog ... and launching personal attacks on others that don't agree with your views (or that you just don't like) ...  do nothing for your credibility.

Go do something positive with your energy.

Page views, that is ... at least according to Blogger (and hardly any of them are mine). 

That candy pink stuff pack has been released but I can't say I've been interested enough to even check out the official forums for what people think of it now it's really here.  Though I have been keeping an eye on the update issues thread so I know what to expect from the game update.  Think I'll wait until I feel like playing Sims 3 again.  Gotta love the way the update notes made it sound like the game just needed a few tweaks around the edges!

I'm not much of a Radiohead fan but I've had an irresistible urge all week to hum that song of theirs ... Drama Police I think it is.  Or maybe I'm thinking of that Culture Club one that goes ... Drama Drama Drama Chameleon, you come and go ... 

Until today that is and then it was Bananarama's Venus ... in honour of the transit. Finally something fast paced and interesting happening in a live feed!
