my Sims 2 updates are coming in fewer and fewer nowadays. i guess you don’t need to hear it again from me that i’ve lost interest. but i still keep buying the expansion packs and stuff packs! i’m a collector… and it’s hard to kick the habit. LOL i was checking Infinite Sims and saw their latest article on My Sims for PC. i have My Sims for NDS and Wii, but i found it very hard to play. maybe it’s because i’m old and my eyes can’t take it anymore (NDS) or that my arm starts hurting after maneuvering the Wiimote to pick up stuff and drop stuff and build stuff (Wii). i’m more of a PC/Mac girl so i’d rather play it on my desktop. i’m waiting to try out My Sims when it comes out next year for the PC.
what caught my eye is this little blurb from the EA Games press release:
Now on the PC with new online features and characters! Have fun with friends safely in a shared online game space and discover surprises and wonders in your newly created town with the MySims you love and a new cast of characters! Now in MySims, made for the PC, you can find all the fun of the first game plus new online features and all-new characters to spark your creativity. Safely chat, interact and play games like Tag and Hide-and-Seek with your online buddies. Construct buildings and create objects to use cooperatively with up to seven friends that are online with you. Like trading cards, share your creations with your friends in-game, as well as outside the game via email or instant message so that others can enjoy them in their own MySims town. The choice to play online is yours, so you can decide to play as a single-player or expand your experience by playing with friends in an online neighborhood.
i’ve always wanted something like this! to be able to use my self-Sim and interact with others, share objects, play in each others’ houses, etc. i wonder what kind of online neighborhood we get. is it just like a virtual chat, where we are in one room and we just talk thru talk bubbles? i’ve never played The Sims Online, but i’ve watched how it’s done on Second Life. i’ve also played on MMOs like Ryzom where you chat with other players (in a chat screen) but we always end up chatting on MSN and your characters can interact with one another. i wonder if that’s how it’s going to be like because that would be so much fun. plus, i like the “chibi” look of My Sims. i think they’re cute!

i read in Snooty Sims that MySims is going to be released on the PC. OMG! i haven’t played it on the Wii or NDS yet, but if it’s going to be on the PC, i think that’ll be a lot more fun! i think the look & feel of MySims (based on the pictures) is so cute and right up my alley. it won’t be released until late 2008 or early 2009, i think. i don’t know what to do if people start modding MySims and make custom content for it. *drowns*

i don’t know why i keep buying this stuff when i never play with it! over the weekend, i got MySims for my Nintendo DS system. did i tell you that i have it for the Wii, too? did i fail to mention that i haven’t played it yet? i don’t know what’s wrong with me… i already have several games for my NDS that i haven’t played with but once. and Free Time is coming out soon, too, like in less than a couple weeks. i should just admit that i have no interest in playing… but the pictures just lure me back in. LOL

i finally picked up MySims for the Nintendo Wii today. hubby is going to move the Wii to our bedroom so i can play MySims while lounging in bed. he’s going to be glued to the PlayStation anyway (playing Guitar Hero III). i wish they would make MySims for the PC. i think i’d enjoy playing it more, since i have nice 24″ monitor. i couldn’t decide if i wanted it for the NDS, but i don’t think my eyes can take staring into a little screen. i’ve been thinking about selling my NDS because i hardly ever use it anyway. we’ll see how this goes…

i just happen to click on Snooty this morning and read that MySims has been released for the Nintendo DS (NDS) and the Wii. for some reason, i can’t get to the official site, but i know what i’m getting soon! maybe this will renew my love of The Sims… this time, playing chibi versions of them! they’re so cute! i’m not sure if i’ll get both versions (as they are different on both consoles). i’d like to get back into playing Sims 2, but i haven’t been interested in playing anything lately… well, maybe Wii bowling or Guitar Hero.

i’ve never played Sims on any other platform except for the PC. i just never liked the look of the Sims 2 on the console. plus, being a self-proclaimed downloadaholic, i wanted more stuff! however, after reading Snooty’s latest news bit on MySims (available on Nintendo Wii and DS), i might need to break out of my comfort zone just this once. when screenshots of the Sims on Wii came out a while back, there were some mixed emotions. some people either loved it or hated it. i can’t stop gushing about it! i think it’s sooooo cute! i’m more of those cheeseball anime fans. i love super-deformed and chibi drawn characters. i adore Sumomo from Chobits. so that’s why i was drawn to the Sims on Wii. i don’t own a Wii or a DS yet, but i hope to get one later on this year… maybe for my birthday. it’ll be nice to carry something small like a DS around with me when i travel, instead of this clunky laptop.
