This is the Night Life #Sims3
I picked up Night Life a little while ago, the latest Sims 3 expansion. I’ve been having a lot of fun with it, but it’s not without bugs. My little (newly created) sim attempted to join a party a friend was having, but for some reason the elevators to the apartment (there are high rises in the newest expansion) were not working so she sat at the entrance just waiting until the party was over. I was also a little sad at the way the newest town was incorporated. I had to move and import my previous sim into the new town, because other wise there’s no way to visit. It’s not a location you can head to at night via taxi.
I do like ‘city life’ though. It’s neat to run into stars, vampires, and other critters roaming the streets at night. The apartment complexes although small are quite interesting looking. You have the choice of moving to a regular house or the apartments. Having a job or a profession is nice, or even being self employed. Bouncers are fun to bribe to get into the hottest locations and there’s always lots to do at the night time hot spots.
For once I find myself taking a break from the creation aspect of the game and actually playing. Normally I just want to design new homes and venues but doing the “story” has been entertaining. Plus the graphics really are amazing. The game has come so far from Sims 1 way back when.When I want a break from MMOs and just want to relax playing something quiet this is typically the game I turn to. No killing involved, just a massively interactive world that I can adjust.
Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
