Amazon is offering $5 credit when you pre-order the PC Download. It sucks it doesn't apply to the hard copies because I'm kind of thinking of getting Premium Edition. I'm not 100% sure yet I want it soon rather than wait for a sale.

I've learned a lot from lurking at SimsVIP. The new feature letting you change the way your sim walks looks great.

Hello! I am lurking at SimsVIP as well. Alexis is great at pulling a lot of information from everywhere.
Her excitement and enthusiasm are infectious.
Thanks for the discount tip. I am waiting to pre-order.
Torn between first hand experience and waiting for others to test it out first.
I still have a couple more months to decide.

The Sims 4: E3 Interview w/SimGuruGraham by SimsVIP
Some good questions and info on how the neighborhood(s) in the world work.
If you are in love with swimming pools you may not like the hush hush info on whether or not they will exist in The Sims 4.

Loading screens for every lot again! They better be darn short. I am not sure I will like going back to playing a world that is not totally open like we have now.

 Suspect 

Some things sound good IMO. Some awful. And a world of only 25 lots, if that is correct?

Sounds like load screens for each block of lots? And I thought I understood Graham to say that Sims would go off lot to go to work. Kind of lika a rabbithole with no rabbit hole building?

"Now, when you're traveling between a world, a neighborhood, or a lot, you will incur a short load." per Grant

My understanding is you can leave the lot to go to the open areas, but if you want to go to another lot, such as the neighbor's house, there will be loading.

 Sad 

And if the world is only 25 lots, that is bad news. I think folks are still confused about that, but that is how most of us are reading it now.

I just want to know when we're going to get it on macs - after saying it would be released for both, they've been very careful to point out subtly that it's only coming out on pc. And I just got myself a new mac. (sigh)

I wonder what that creators handbook thing is all about.

I would never dear buy a mac. It would just be a massive frustration with all the limitations. Can't use caw with it either. You can't just give it back and have a pc instead.

That was a very informative interview about the game. And the clarification of some points after, too. All interesting.
I don't think it will be difficult to adjust to the different method of a Sim traveling from one point to another. I tend to use TCE to teleport them when I have a lot for my Sim to accomplish/do so I probably would miss that. It sounds like teleporting could not be an option since the neighborhoods are not open like in TS3. I can't wrap my head around no downtown of business/work places. A world of no malls for shopping? Can't visualize that.

25 lots does not a world make for me.  Sad

This is a very interesting article from  Popular Mechanics.

That is a great article and explains the complexity of the game.

The Sims 4: Gurus Gone Wild (Loads of Tweets)

Still a veil of secrecy but some interesting hints. My favorite reply was when asked about CAW.

Sigh. It is ridiculous that they cannot answer anything. Unless they do not know some of the answers as the game is still being stripped more and more.

Poor Gurus. They are in an awful position.

I tell you what, I am getting more excited about The Sims 4 than I though I would be. I guess it will depend on the game play. I don't want a rehash of The Sims 3.  scratch

An interesting article on AI.
The caw answer may have been amusing but it was also rude.

Take a gander at this and tell me what you think.
There is also a synopsis at SimsVIP.

What struck me was that there will be no toddlers. It will be interesting to see a baby age up to a child and head straight to school. Not sure that makes sense to me.

The history of Life Stages in The Sims: http://sims.wikia.com/wiki/Life_stages
Quoted from the page:
In The Sims there are only three ages: baby, child and adult. Babies grow into children after 72 hours. Children do not grow up into adults, although the Makin' Magic expansion allows magical children to grow up by using the Age of Instant charm. There are third-party programs which can grow a child into an adult. There are also hacked objects which can allow a child to function as an adult - or vice versa.
~~~
There are seven life stages in The Sims 2. Baby: (3 days); Toddler: (4 days); Child: (8 days); Teen: (up to 15 days) Note: Teens can grow up early in order to go to University.; Young adult: (varies; usually 24 days) University only.; Adult: (29 days); Elder: (varies; 9–31 days) Sims who have higher aspiration levels when aging generally get more time, but there is a random element. Followed by death.
~~~
We are all familiar with the seven life stages in The Sims 3.
There still are Baby, Toddler, Children, Teens, Young adult, Adult and Elder life stages.
So why eliminate toddlers now?
~~~
Taken from the blog link:

The point has been made by SimGuruGraham to read this blog very carefully.
Maybe there is more to the story?

I have to say I was pretty surprised that they took out Toddlers and Pools. I never have played Sims 1 so this would be really weird for me. Baby to Child... I actually like the toddler stage, it's a nice transition.

Looks like they are going to be stringing us along as usual with eps and sps. I get that, but I also think that they took a step back with this one...

I was actually getting close to pre-ordering too....

I hear you Pieta... still plenty of room on the fence with me though. Just watching all the fuss and bother is a tiny bit amusing to be honest.
If history holds true I can still wait til the end of August to get any pre-order bonuses.
