Let’s Play The Sims 3 and Ruin Lives

I decided that instead of exactly showing you why I love The Sims 3, I’m going to make a story out of it. This is the true story… of eight Twinfinite staffers… picked to live in a house… work together and have their lives taped… to find out what happens… when people stop being polite… and start getting real… The Real World. I mean, The Sims 3.  Join Andy, Claudia, Muaz, Alex, Matt, Alissa, Ricky, and Henry as they begin [...]

Behind the Scenes with Silas Hite, Video Game Composer

Anyone who knows me also knows that I’m a sucker for a great musical score. The music in a game helps balance the feel of the moment, even when doing something relatively mundane like building a house in The Sims. This is where people like Silas Hite come in; he’s a composer who’s worked on a wide range of titles, including The Sims 2, Skate 3, Boom Blox, The Simpsons Game, and more. His job is to convey a message or an emotion [...]

The Sims 3: Into the Future Review – Slippin’ INTOOOO THEEEE FUUUTUUUURRRREE

The Sims 3‘s slew of expansions comes to an end with Into the Future as The Sims 4 gets ready to release next year. Though late next year. But I’m sorry for reminding you of that, it depresses me too. So with The Sims 3: Into the Future being the last expansion as well as new grounds for the series, is it worth the money? The short answer: If you’re a pre-existing Sims fan, hell yes. As was customary with [...]

EA to Release The Sims 4 in Fall 2014

Electronic Arts has announced that The Sims 4, the latest installment in the popular franchise, is scheduled for release in autumn of 2014. And it will be a fresh start: content cannot be transferred from previous games because the Sims Studio will be using incompatible technology. This is good news for me, as I’ll be returning to the series after a decade-long hiatus. But The Sims, well, that was the first PC game I became obsessed with. I remember staying [...]

The Sims 3: Island Paradise Review – Doing Flips and Sh… Overused Reference

When it came to The Sims expansions (and it’s still partially prevalent), you had to be wary of which you were going to actually buy. There were either tacked on additions you wouldn’t want to spend the money on, or it was a golden idea that really expanded the gameplay. Luckily with The Sims 3, the expansions have mostly opened up the game in ways that really push how you play. It’s no different with The Sims 3: Island Paradise.

5 Games To Get A Non-Gamer Playing

As crazy as this might seem, not all people play video games (I know, insane right!?). As a gamer, I’ve always kinda figured that these non-gamers just didn’t like video games and I usually had a little bit of a bias against them for it too. Yet, as I’ve grown up and met more people in my life, I’ve come to the conclusion that the only real people that don’t game in some fashion are people that have never played one that [...]
