Apartment Life is going to be the 8th and probably last expansion pack for The Sims 2 franchise. The Sims 3 is coming out next year (2009) and i’m really so excited to get my hands on it. (as well as Spore.) anyway, i was curious about what’s going on in the world of The Sims 2, so i checked Snooty Sims and saw that people from various fansites were invited to yet another unveiling of the latest expansion pack.
from what i can tell from the screenshots, we’re getting spiral staircases (FINALLY!). we’re getting functioning wardrobes (closets), ceiling tiles (i wonder if the camera will be easier to handle), and the latest supernatural being is the witch (referencing back to the Making Magic EP in the original Sims game). i recommend reading TSR’s article on Apartment Life (AL) to get the gist of what’s to come. even though i haven’t played the game in almost a year, i’m still fully vested in the game and hope to find time to pick it up again.
more than likely, i’m going to get rid of all my hacks once and for all. i think this is what holds me back from playing. i think i would’ve enjoyed playing if i never knew i could hack the game. and that’s why i got spoiled and spent DAYS just tracking down the updated hacks and new hacks. i hope to not get into that habit once The Sims 3 comes out. but knowing myself, i’m sure the lure of easier gaming is just not to be ignored! LOL
i still have to install the Kitchen & Bath Interior Design Stuff pack and the soon-to-be released IKEA Home Stuff pack which i’m really excited to get because i love IKEA and i can finally recreate my home office in the game.
