Seasons Is Here...

...And it's glorious.

Been a week since it released and it still feels surreal that we actually have it. The Sims 3 feels pretty complete now and that Sims charm is back in full force. I feel more compelled to have my sims socialize instead of just focusing on skilling and levelling up their careers. My SSX characters can finally snowboard even if it's still restricted to a halfpipe like in The Sims Vacation. I already had a feeling when Seasons first popped up on that survey that it would be the best expansion pack and I was right. It's unquestionably the most complete one of the bunch too. Also, I installed Supernatural at the same time. So much to explore. Overwhelming, but in a good way!

Have some screenshot spam! More after the page break!

Freeze To Death Ghost + Clouds!

The Japanese Dining set review is on hold to see if it will work out in a different sort of format.

Have a couple more videos in the meantime!

Time for a Swim!

I love how so many features got added just through this new patch alone, without even having to get Seasons. My favourite thing so far is definitely the ability to swim in oceans/lakes/rivers. My only gripe is that non-active sims don't seem to join in on the fun, but I saw someone posted a picture of several sims swimming near Sunset Valley's beach. Kind of strange but I bet sims will swarm to the ocean during the summer with Seasons installed. Hopefully more interactions can be done between sims in the water in the future too, so far there's only the splash from the base game.

Anyway, here's some footage of my sims swimming in Great Bear by Johnnywr!
If I get the time I may post videos of sims swimming in other worlds. Hopefully I can get a review for the new Japanese Inspired Dining set this weekend, it's already bought and ready to download.
