The Sims world has been relatively quiet this week, following the release of TS3:UL and SimCity last week.
Lazy Game Reviews has posted his review of The Sims 3: University Life. You can see the full review here. Spoiler Alert: He talks about a college-themed expansion pack.
SimCity was the best-selling game in the UK last week, according to this chart. The Sims 3: University Life, which released on the same day as SimCity, came in second place overall. Other notable listings are The Sims 3 (base game) in 5th place, The Sims 3: Seasons in 9th, The Sims 3: Pets in 10th, The Sims 3: Supernatural in 12th, The Sims 3: Showtime in 18th, and The Sims 3: Generations in 20th. This means, of the top twenty games sold in the UK this week, seven were part of The Sims 3 series of games and expansions, and eight take place within the "Sims Universe."
The Sims 3 Store is having a sale this weekend (March 14 - 17) on some worlds. Prices on Lucky Palms (Standard and Gold editions) and Barnacle Bay will be more than 50% off! If you've been holding out on buying these worlds, now may be the time.
Please join me in welcoming Waikikamukow (talk) as The Sims Wiki's newest administrator! I'm fully confident that she'll do an excellent job in her new position.
A discussion regarding notability and guidelines for article creation on the wiki has resulted in a draft proposal, which is currently up for consideration by the community. This discussion has been ongoing sporadically for nearly three months and has not been resolved yet, and there are a lot of questions about how the policy should or can be implemented. Bottom line - your input really is needed and appreciated. Please visit this forum thread to weigh in, or check the proposed policy here.
If I forgot to mention anything important, don't hesitate to yell at me in the comments below.
I just ran across this interesting piece of news while perusing Reddit. Apparently SimCity (2013) has been modified to run offline. So, congratulations EA! You managed to enforce the always-on DRM for a record nine days!
