PostSubject: Sims 4 Announced!   Sat May 04, 2013 12:52 am

Per Sims VIP there is a lot of speculation that EA will announce Sims 4 Monday as the "big announcement". Hmmmmm. I am not ready for Sims 4, that is for sure, unless a HUGE improvement and NOT an online game.

?????

Edit: Changed topic title as it has now been announced. MW

I agree, it's too early. Sims3 works nicely for me now. I'm not ready to start something new. The online game they use for simcity will be very different than I'm currently doing in sims3. It will be a lot of information to take in, and wait for people to come with the things I need for houses, and with caw too.

Not being able to build without a server can be a problem.

rant I will stomp and frown and be perverse if the ONLY way to play is online. I am stubbornly independent and do NOT want to be at the mercy of an errant server. I actually tried to play The Sims Online back in the day. Never really got there because of loading issues and crashing servers. / rant

I just wish someone could come up with an open source "sims" instead. I don't like EA's attempt to control what people can use. They just want to milk the brand as much as they can. Making it possible for people to make content is not going to be something they put a lot of work into ever.

I will continue to play TS3 as long as I can and hope for the best.
BTW: The Sims 4 domain is live. Just has Sims 3 content for now but is an indication they will soon announce it.
The url http://theSims4.com at least it worked earlier.
I will register my EuphorialQueen persona when the option is available.
Then I can read for myself what is the intended path for things to come.

Well ... looks like something new is in store for the world of The Sims.
It was May 2009 when The Sims 3 went live on the interwebs. Cannot
believe it has already been four years since we all swooned over the
idea of open neighborhoods. Not so keen on the idea of The Sims Online
if that indeed is the direction this is heading. Anyone paying attention
might note they have been sort of testing new methods of gameplay on
the somewhat unsuspecting public. Sims Medieval presented goal oriented
mini games and a unique customization of facial features. Sims 3
Showtime introduced a way to transport your Sim into another player's
game. The ability to chat in game (somewhat annoying IMHO) was added.
The in game gifting system lets us send random gifts between players.
The gifting system is not so bad ... I do use that option. However
mandatory dependence on servers and co-operative game play are not what I
see as desirable.

Yeah... If the game turns into an online social thing... No thanks. I'm all about the creating part. I don't use the gifting except to reciprocate when other people gift me. And I simported only to get the goodies. I really hated it otherwise. I turned off the in-game "wall" almost immediately. I run in windowed mode so it's not problem for me to keep tabs on stuff.

I have never played an online game. I would not want to be dependent on an EA server. I've already dumped an outrageous amount of money on this game and not sure how I would feel about starting a new obsession. I guess I will just wait and see.

I wonder why everybody is talking about Sims 4 as an online game?
Any hints seen of that?

And even if a part of it should be ... I would love to invite some of you over to visit my house/game lol!

I am looking forward to Sims 4 and to see what improvements there would be.
I would be really disappointed if it turns out to be just repetition of Sims 3 Rolling Eyes

And as for the money - I try to think of the game and the EP's as I think of all the books I have bought through time and read only once Laughing

I did see an interview posted somewhere that intimated Sims 4 would be an online game. I was on my phone at the time and unfortunately cannot find the link now.
The big announcement Monday will hopefully provide some more clarity. I suspect it may be more of a Tease that actual full disclosure.
Fan site SimsVIP (US) has been invited to the big reveal and they are always good at sharing as much as they are allowed.
Until then I will be all atwitter ....

Even though I do not want an online game, it almost seems like if they are going to produce a new game, what else would they do that is so different to warrant a new one? If just somewhat better graphics or whatever I would stick with 3. Unless there is some huge improvement and online is only an option, I will probably stay with 3.

It will be interesting to see when we have more information and what the reactions will be. The community has been very vocal about many people not wanting an online Sims game, so we shall see.

hmm

Long ago in a land far away .... (ahem ... Star Wars Day May the Fourth (Force) Be With You) ...there were rumors of using facial recognition software to create Sims. But that is just crazy talk ... isn't it?

I guess I'm in wait and see mode. I can't even play Sims 3 because of my computer lag when playing. What will Sims 4 be like? I miss Sims 3, but I'm having fun with Sims 2.

afraid 2

Can you uninstall an EP or 2 or do something so you can play again? I have been busy the last few weeks so have not played in a while, and really miss it and want to play again next week.

I'm in the "wait and see" group. I'm not really all that wild about "have to be online" to play. That didn't work out all that well with the new SimCity. I also have sunk a boatload of money into this game!!!! and plan on buying the new eps/sps in the works. I'm not quite ready to move on to something else. It would have to be really awesome and offer different gameplay from sims 3. I guess we shall see ....

Actually announcing The Sims 4 could result in a loss of revenue for the upcoming TS3 EPs/SPs. Waiting to buy could save us ... the consumer/player some money. I would look for price reductions in the already existing games available. Look at the store world bundle as an example.

It's official folks - The Sims 4 coming out in 2014.

Here are some links:

http://www.ea.com/news/maxis-unveils-the-sims-4
http://www.simsvip.com

It's single player and offline. Looks like I won't be giving up my guilty pleasure anytime soon!!

~~happy dance~~

Looking forward to it now. Let's hope the game itself will at least cost the same as TS3, the specs for computers be reasonable, the game comes in both downloadable and disc format AND the base game come with weather - at the very least.

Thanks for moving this Merry!! I wasn't sure where to post it .. sorry. Anyway, EA now has live The Sims 4 official forums. You can go there via this link: http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/forums/show/598.page

Now all I have to do is get UL and IP ... and IF EA decides to throw in an OFB type EP, I'll get that too. Then I'll just play TS3 and wait and see what TS4 will be offering before I decide to switch. Hopefully, I'll have a longer playing time before I switch to TS4 this time.
