I swear, that's it for Sims on this computer. For now, at least.

Laptop hard drive needed replacing, and the Spoons of course got nuked. :( I wasn't able to save everything before the stupid drive froze the computer again. I think I'm just going to hold off on legacies for now...something always happens to disrupt them and also, I'm losing interest in them for whatever reason.

Actually, I might make a new LJ. I'll link it here for those who want to add me. :)

Decided I might as well do a short review on this thing since it's been bugging me for ages.

I started playing it around last month or so because I need something to do other than Pet Society. My initial thought was, well, it's an okay game, but it could use more. Then I got to playing.

See, the game just shows what lengths EA is willing to go to to get paid. It's Simcash this, Social Points that. This would be all fine and dandy if almost every damned item in the game wasn't based off these two forms of currency. Sure, you can make Simoleons all you want, but it won't pay for those Simcash-only outfits or furniture sets. And these things, unless you're willing to open your wallet for a facebook game, take ages to save up.

Then there's just the huge emphasis they place on the social aspect. I wanted a new shower. I have to wait for someone to send me 10 rubber duckies to build that shower. New room? Same deal. Rubber duckies optional. But really, does everything have to be this way? I know a lot of games on Facebook do things this way, but Sims Social is SIMS. Let us live how we want and don't make us wait two months to refurbish your bedroom. '

Just....urgh. I'd rather just open the game and play it. So much easier.

This is why they need to take better notes on our mental patients. Or at least, you know, keep them locked up if they show signs of things like THIS.

I mean, when I saw the headline, I clicked thinking it was another Belieber twat making empty threats towards the girlfriend of a person they'll never have, but this was a shocker, really. Keep your bodyguards close, Selena. I'm not a hardcore fan of you, but you haven't given me a reason to dislike you.

Seriously...whoa.

I....ugh.

This has nothing to do at all with my grudge against GOS in the least. Nothing to do with my actual dislike of Jenfold. 

But really, now. This was uncalled for. There was nothing wrong with what those people said, just that they were waiting for the mythology stuff. As in, "I'm excited to see what people will make for mythology!" Let's say you make bracelets. If people tell you, "I can't wait to see what kind of gemstones you put in your next batch!" then should your response be, "Why don't you fucking make your own gemstone bracelets, you greedy bitches"? 

Really, now. The entirety of GOS thinks this is okay? There's a Team Jenfold? 

Fucking hell. I could reregister at the forum if I choose to. For some reason I can view the whole damn thing and download without proxies. But I don't care because I would not want to be a part of that kind of community. It's a clique - you might be one of the favorites, but if you take a wrong step once, you'll have hyenas on your back. In this case, these people did NOTHING wrong. I don't care what everyone has to say about entitlement or laziness - there's nothing wrong with being excited to see what someone's going to post next for a specific theme. 

Frankly...I'm glad I was banned from there. 

Favorite response:

It's funny* - I can think of a lot of ways to discourage "leeching", if people downloading other people's creations is really such a problem.**  Most of them are more effective than snapping at people expressing excitement. And none of them have that pesky little side effect of actively discouraging sharing.

But I guess basic human decency just isn't gawth enough.

*not really

**If the mods really frown so much on people downloading stuff without giving something in return, why doesn't GoS require registration to access content? Am I supposed to feel guilty because GoS has been my go-to place to download pretties for years, and I've contributed maybe two or three things myself?



Seriously, GOS. You might be the biggest forum out there aside from Mod the Sims, but get the fuck over yourselves.

Anyone know why she suddenly deleted their journal?

Somehow I think it's a result of the community turning against them. Assholes couldn't get away with their nastiness for long.

Sat down to write an app for an RPG. Ended up being dragged off by friends to go play volleyball.

We played two games and ended up wrestling in the sand for another hour. Being the smallest, I was of course tackled down and almost buried, but I kick too much. :P

There was much showering and chafing afterwards. The chafing was for the guys, who earned plenty of sand down their drawers for their efforts. 

I love college.

(PS: We were playing RIGHT next to the security office.)

"Bowling balls get picked up, fingered, thrown in the gutter, and then they come back for more. Hmm. Sounds like half the girls I know."

I'll humor you this time. Where the feck did my rich text editor go? o_O I'd like to post my update soon.
