Xander Gates was happy when his cousin Anna Sutton came home with him afterschool one day. Xander was best friends with her sister Darcy, but he hadn’t gotten a chance to play with Anna yet since her last birthday. Unfortunately, Anna wasn’t interested in playing with him and refused everything he suggested.
Sorry for the silence! Stress and sickness have kept me from playing lately. I hope to get Gates 3 finished up Monday night and have an update posted here Tuesday or Wednesday.
I no longer have a buffer of posts saved up to keep up a regular posting schedule due to family stuff and other things that have cut into play time recently. So I’ll be posting updates as I play the game, which means since I’m not done yet with the Gates 3 household, there’s no update for them today. I do think I should be able to get their post up either Friday or Saturday, though.
In other news, did you hear The Sims 3 is officially pushed back until June? I have to say that I haven’t been very excited about TS3. As soon as info about TS2 started trickling out when it was being developed, I knew right away that I had to have it ASAP. It was such a big improvement over TS1. But with TS3, I haven’t seen or read anything that’s really made me excited. The seamless neighborhood would be cool, if my computer could run it without a lot of lagging (which I doubt) but I there are a lot of little things that we’ll be losing at the release of TS3 that I’m not happy about. I don’t like having features I’ve become used to taken away again and having to wait for new expansion packs to bring them back, if ever. Plus, with all the hacks out there, I’ve finally gotten TS2 working the way I want. 😉
I wasn’t planning to get TS3 anytime soon, but I was looking forward to it coming out this month just so that I could see pictures from the game played by real players and hear their opinions of it. And hear from the modders about what they might be able to do to make improvements. Now we have to wait a bit longer to find out.
Anyway, I hope with these few extra months they’ve given themselves, EA will give the TS3 Sims a new look. Because every time I look at their website, I keep thinking, “Wow, those Sims are REALLY weird and ugly!” I like the default skins of the TS2 Sims better than the TS3 ones.
