The Sims 2 Apartment Life - News and Preview
Written at 01:21 by Andy - 0 comments.

On the official site , there is new and exciting information about the forthcoming expansion for The Sims 2. Firstly, it shows us the new packshot and there are four screenshots to look at, showing some of the features.

Part of the description of what this EP is going to be about is as follows.

- Move into the perfect apartment: a spacious loft, a cozy place for a young couple, or a multi-bedroom flat-share with friends.
- Mingle with Sims from all-new social groups: stylish socialites, artsy bohemians, sports jocks, gadget-collecting techies, or edgy gearheads.
- Take advantage of apartment life: form social networks to make new friends, advance their careers, or look for love.
- Build your Sim's new reputation meter: with a good reputation, your Sim can find the right friends to help them achieve their goals!
- Control multiple households: will you make your Sims live in happy harmony or comical conflict?

With an indication of different types of possible apartment, a list of NPC types to add to the mix, different social interactions, having "a rep to protect" and what sounds like running more than one household in the same building, can this really be what is possible?

Click here to get the latest information from the official site and see more screenshots in detail. The more news we get, the more we will let you know and when the expansion pack is released in under 3 months, we will be reviewing it in detail.

New Poll - Please help us to help you
Written at 18:27 by Andy - 0 comments.

Similar to one a poll that we ran a couple of years ago, we have set a new poll up to find out which expansion packs you either have or are thinking of buying. If an expansion pack is included as part of a special edition of The Sims 2 - "De Luxe" includes "Nightlife" - then please make sure you include it in your listing.

With the information from these results, it will gear us better towards understanding our fanbase and create new objects and lots closer to what you have.

Thankyou for taking part.
