So, have any of you tried it yet? im thinking of buying it (go figure) if my computer can play it. i already think it looks great, and seems great, but id like to hear first hand accounts.

i realize there is the pre-release thread, but i honestly didnt see it when i skimmed the first page, and i want this to be reviews/discussions. the old one was pre-release and im grabbing at straws now that i realize i screwed up and made a thread while the old one was still around big grin
I hate yankees and this is one reason why. Just because you can't pay for 3 hot dogs doesn't mean that the economy is bad and ya'll think that bush is an idiot because he's from Texas. Well f you because he saved your ass from people like Sadam Houssein and don't go thinking i'm just a minupulated trailor trash illiterate for taking up for him because I'm smarter than 90% of the world.

The game is awesome. My male sim is on the top of the athlelic career and just won 40000 on a chance card coal and he's fucking the cleaning lady, Mary Sue, Nina Caliente and his wife, which I created. His wife is fucking Nina too, and working on getting the maid into bed. Amazingly, I managed to avoid killing any sims so far.

I wasn't terribly impressed with the first Sims, but this one is the only game I play on a regular basis now. It's worth the buy, definitely.

On it's own, it's an incredibly fun game. There's a pretty large variety of things to do in it.

What I'm looking forward to is when the online community bucks-up and starts making all kinds of new skins and objects for us to play with.

There aren't going to be as many objects as there were in the first though, because you need Maya to make objects for this one.

I just bought the game and I'm already addicted. I've never played the first Sims game, but this one is so strangely addicting, I'm sucked into it. I'm playing as the Goths right now and trying to turn Alexander into Mr. Popularity, so far it's working. Cassandra's relationship is falling apart, and Mortimer is enjoying his retirement.

The game is great, and I absolutely love the fact that you need Maya to make anything for the game. With luck, the people who actually give a fuck will be able to get the Personal Learning Edition and make them with that, and the people who don't won't bother so there won't be all of those shitty objects that were cut out of photographs and skewed put out there.

It's fucking awesome. That's all I can say. I was quite pissed off to find out that my Sim would become an elder in a month, but luckily there's an Elixir of Youth. The Aspiration Points rock. kekeke u give soj??? I haven't explored the game much yet, because:
1. It's a 900 mhz Pentium III. Need I say more?
2. Something's wrong with the fucking house builder. I can't lay down anything.

Alexander failed his class and lost his two best friends. Cassandra finally went through with her marriage, but got ditched at the alter. Right before his daughter got ditched at the alter, Mortimer proposed to Nina (I think that's her name) and then died in the shower that same night.

After all that, I enclosed them all within bookcases and let them starve to death.

I drowned in my own urine and stench once. That was sad. I'm trying my best not to get addicted, so I haven't been playing it much lately.

a. i hope i die in the shower. that's invariably the best part of my day.

b. why didn't they make it so that if one sim starves to death, the other two eat it?

my sim fell in love with nina, and got married. then i found out the secret, ugly slutty truth about nina. her fantasy was to make out with three different sims. she died in a tragic microwave fire the next night, and her ashes were spread around the computer room, right next to the desk.

I just bought it a couple hours ago, except I bought the DVD edition. Which was extremely stupid, as I don't even have a DVD drive on my computer. I'll tell you how it is after I exchange it.

I'm so brilliant sometimes. I was really excited about playing it as soon as I got home too.

I have a fever and stayed home sick today; so I just spent the last few hours making a near-exact replica of my house in Pleasantview. It's so pretty.

It depresses me that my Sim-self gets more action than I do though.

It was totally worth making my mom mad by getting her to take me back to the store.

I started making my family, but it took too long and I got impatient. It was taking me over 10 minutes to make one person...I wanted it to be perfect. So I started playing the Monty family (Romeo's).

The mom and dad spent a day in their underwear. That day, a headmaster from a private school came over, and the mom talked him into letting Romeo and Mercutio into his school. The whole time the headmaster was there, the mom wanted to WooHoo with the dad. It was funny. Then the dad died for some reason. I have no idea why, but there were about 3 girls hula dancing in front of him when it happened.

I wish I'd gotten this a different day. I can't stay home and play it tomorrow, and by the time I get home, my brother will be on the computer. Oh well.

I'm home sick today and really, really want to go out and buy this game to play. But it costs 50 bucks that I really can't spare right now, because I don't have a job. Oh, what a conundrum!

I've been playing for a few days, so far it's great. It's much more addictive than the first one, without most of the least realistic stuff that the different expansion packs introduced (well, this will probably change with the new expansion packs that I'm sure they'll make).

My sister and I started playing around with the Sim generator and all of sudden I was playing with Jamiroquai. He's married to Nina because she was the first slut to approach him. Last time I played they were having sex, but not going for a baby because, despite the fact that Jamiroquai is getting old (and thus he has no time to waste if he wants to pass his DNA to a next generation), having a baby frightens Nina because she's such a whore.

I don't want my sims to live forever, you know. Precisely, this aging (and dying) thing is what I always thought the first Sims needed.
