I agree, with all the new things to do, our sims will definitely be a bit too busy for these type of chores!

1st Prima Guide Details + 8 New Videos
The first details of the official Prima Guide for The Sims 3, here:

http://www.primagames.com/catalog/d...0761561378#desc

Yet 8 more videos! Feebs.nl posted the entire presentation of their Sims 3 Producer Tour with good quality images and sound in 8 videos, here:

http://www.feebs.nl/search?query=si...=25&submit=Zoek

EDIT: Okay, I think these 8 videos may be the same ones from the Sims De Toi videos that were posted about a week ago because they look the same to me. But these videos here are larger and a little better in quality so I'll just keep the link here. Sorry about that!

Yes we saw those at the BBS at another thread but theese scans that you are showing us are better quality. I like them! I'm anticipating playing Mortimer as a child and the ability to actually choose his destiny this time is amazing! It's like now we get to make it all happen rather than EAxis having done it already for us.

And wow, I'm surprised that these families don't include Bella or even the Newbies! What's up with that? We have Mortimer and Crumplebottom which are both famous, now we need Bella and the Newbies to complete the collection of the famous characters from the original. Maybe Bella's story is still being worked on? I hope she'll be in it. And I want her to be born because we shouldn't have to create her.

After seeing what the Collector's Edition I'm happy that I decided to order the standard version. I do want that orange sports car but I don't think $20 is worth it just for the car. lol

Yes but remember that now that we have the new tool in the game called Create-A-Style, you can change the color, pattern and texture.

The extra $20 isn't just for the car. Actually, most of the cost is for the 2 GB flash drive.

I know that. I was saying that for me shelling out an extra $20 for it would be a waste since the only I want is that orange sports car.

HeeHee! I actually like the way Mortimer's family looks. They seem like they would be a blast to play. XD And Mortimer is definitely giving off some Adam's family vibe in that outfit. XD

About the laundry:

The person who wrote this, is Dutch and also wrote a Dutch preview for the site she belongs to. In that preview one can read the following:

Which does NOT mean you can put your dirty clothes in a washing machine, it means you can put your dirty DISHES in the DISHwasher.
Sorry guys, for the misunderstanding. It's most likely that, as she is Dutch, she would use the right word in the Dutch preview and a wrong one in her translation. It is very similar, after all.

Lol that makes more sense. It would be nice to have a washer and dyer as decoration though.

Wait. So Jeff and Diane Pleasant aren't famous enough? I remember them being universally complained about in Sims 1. And the apple sure hasn't fallen far from the tree seeing as they were Daniel's parents and the mess his family is in 2. I could see dissing the Roomies as they were afterthoughts even in 2 or Michael Bachelor since he's dead and his urn is on the Caliente coffee table. But the Pleasants are every bit as much as a founding family of the game as the Goths are. If Sims 3 ships and there are no Pleasants, the character roster will be quite incomplete.

I loved the Pleasant's family tree- there's one in there called Les Pleasant!
What about Brad and Tiffany Burb? Aren't they going to be there?

I will choose a path that's clear- I will choose free will

The Official TS3 Game Cover + New Community Blog
Apparently this is the official game cover for The Sims 3 according to Amazon.co.uk and InfiniteSims, both of which are usually reliable sources. Snooty posted it in his site:

http://www.snootysims.com/newsimg/sims3cover.jpg

A new blog has been posted in the official site about the new community site for the game:

http://thesims3.ea.com/view/pages/b...ityFeaturesBlog



Personally I love the new game cover, the Sims are very attractive in it (more so than the screen shots we've seen) and it looks just like a teen drama series like "Gossip Girl" or "90210" or something, lol. Just the way they're posing, I guess. I wonder if we'll get these poses in the game.

Cappyboy, I apologize for that, I totally forgot about the Pleasant family only because I never played them. I would always delete them because they just didn't interest me. But I play them in Sims 2 because they are much more interesting in that version.

I hope they can really pose like that, (guy's arms around the girls waist) I can't wait!!! If I can make a super affectionate sim like me (without it always leading to woohoo) I'll be extremely happy

Yeah, especially when making stories, these poses would be great.

If every other game in the Sims series is any indication, then the game cover and what is on it means nothing as they hardly ever reflect anything about the clothing, hair or pose options/features we will get in the actual game and are usually just artistic conceptualizations.

Also, there's something about it that just doesn't look right to me and it's not even connected to all the controversy on the official boards about the skankiness of the picture. I don't know, I just doubt this will be the actual box cover art for the game. Personally, the super sparkly plumbbob is enough for me.

Interesting cover. I rather liked the white background with the shiny plumbob, but I guess I am in to simplistic designs like that.

#170 Old 14th Nov 2008 at 10:43 AM
Love the new cover! The sims look fantastic! So individual and unique. I'm getting more excited with every new piece of information.

Also there has been two new pictures posted on the official site:

http://thesims3.ea.com/screenshots/...rbattle_big.jpg

I dont think anyone has posted these already.

Thanks for the link to the new pictures. I love those purple boots on the girl standing in the first pic. The clothes in TS3 look way better then what was in TS2... the sims team must of been keeping up with what CC designers where making. Thank goodness.

#172 Old 14th Nov 2008 at 4:41 PM
The clothes are definately better. I love the stripey top and jeans compo. And of course the purple boots!

#173 Old 14th Nov 2008 at 6:53 PM
The boots are fabulous - looks like the Sim has a proper high heel and not those stumpy ones of past games.

#174 Old 14th Nov 2008 at 7:28 PM
I agree the outfits are definitely better, I like the deign of the room too. It's enough for me to just have my furniture match, I like stuff matchy matchy like that so no more having to search and search for the perfect recolors (I'm no good at creating CC)

I'm loving the cover. The dress with the boots is awesome.
