While I will be doing a full Sims 4 preview on the site soon, I’ve decided to hold off on doing one as any new information can come out during E3 that would make me need to change it and update it. So I’d rather make sure I have everything I need before I go ahead and write a preview on the game. There’s new information coming out constantly for the game and I need time to gather my thoughts on everything I see and what’s detailed. But I do have all these images so I might as well share them.
Just briefly though as for my thoughts on the E3 reveal of the Sims 4. I thought it was interesting and was definitely something that gave out new information. I mean I do really like the idea that you can share your Sims online and other people can download and play them in their neighborhood. I mean that is pretty cool! I imagine it’s for sharing with your friends. But I also thought if I ever did a review, I wondered if I could put the Sim I used in the review up so people could play with them in their game. Or maybe if I’m following a Simmer on YouTube they could put their Sim up and people could play with them. That would be pretty fun. I think the sharing feature has a lot of potential as I’ve seen some really good Sims out there during my time watching people play The Sims 3, so it’s good to know that maybe people could share their Sims around, or their creations in the game. Some people build some really great stuff and are way more creative than I could be. It just might be something fun to have and I thought it was good of them to include it in their E3 press conference.
As for the emotions and the ability for a Sim to become so happy that they are killed by laughter. It was sort of funny, but well, it wan’t really much. I already knew about the personalities in the Sims 4 from some of the previous videos. It wasn’t really something super new other than knowing one of the ways you can die. I am curious to know other types of deaths though. If you can die from too much laughter, can you die from something like making your Sim WooHoo too much?
I really wanted to know more about the careers and how the cars worked in the game. For me when I play the Sims it’s all about the career, I work to get to the top and that’s how I play the game. I like to collect my money, buy my swimming pool and live an awesome life. But I didn’t get to see much of that. So I really wanted to know more on that and a few other features in the game and these questions weren’t answered in the conference.
But so far I’m interested in the game and I’m following it closely. For now though, rather than keeping all the images I have until I write my preview I’ll put them here for you all to look at. Sort of an image preview I guess. While I still have many questions about the game, I’m definitely excited about it and it looks great so far!
These images below show off some of the new Sim styles and also just basically how some of your Sims might be looking in the game. The look of the game is starting to really appeal to me. I like the image below with the Sim on the piano and also the image under it with the 3 Sims together. It’s looking like the world is slowly coming together and alive and I like that!
