Fan favourite Bonehilda returns in The Sims 4 Paranormal Stuff pack

The Sims 4 appeals to me because it lets me build the kind of Pinterest-worthy homes I'll never live in in real-life, so I'm often more excited about the game's Stuff packs than its game-changing expansions. This time is no different: the Paranormal stuff pack arrives later this month and as well as adding a new career and bringing back Bonehilda, it also adds some…

Feature: One Off The List

The 10 most wholesome families in PC games

Pack your bags, wrap the presents, put your scarf around your neck. And then sit down because, I'm sorry, you're going nowhere. It's bad, yeah. Even yours truly, a respected list goblin of note, could not make it back to his family in time for the holidays due to the ongoing vengeance of mother nature. But listen. What if I told you: "video games"? They…

The Sims 4 new update adds over 100 skin tones and sliders to character creation

Earlier this year, Maxis told players that they would expand the character creation tools in The Sims 4 to help create more diverse Sims, specifically focusing on darker skin tones and textured hairstyles. That effort has produced results today in a free update that massively expands your ability to choose skin tones and makeup colors along with a couple hairstyle improvements.

The best management games on PC

2020 was a pretty good year for management games, but nothing released in the past 12 months has impressed us enough to squeeze its way into our best management games list. Don't worry, though - it's only because there are already so many classics to choose from. If you're looking for something to sink into over the holidays, check out our picks below.

Feature: Snow big deal

Wot I did on my holidays in The Sims 4 Snowy Escape DLC

This year for my holidays I was going to go on a road trip around a European country before it became too late, but then this summer became a bit of a write off. Enter the latest DLC for EA's blockbuster life sim The Sims 4, a combined winter wonderland and chill hiking holiday. Snowy Escape is set in the "Japanese inspired" Mt. Komorebi, and…

Feature: We've gone too far this time

Preview: The Sims 4’s Snowy Escape DLC might be Skynet

The latest chunk of DLC for The Sims 4 is arriving on November 13th. Entitled Snowy Escape, it's a wintery-themed one this time, so is very seasonal, and I got to play a bunch of a preview build. Snowy Escape adds a new world, Mt. Komorebi, with three neighbourhoods - one of which is the mountain itself where your Sims can ski and snowboard and…

Feature: Scares as iconic as Aiden's cap

Add Hill House and the Bates Motel to The Sims 4 for the season of pumpkins

As the nights draw ever closer, and the windows of the local Tesco grow ever more pumpkiny, I have been burrowing into blankets, putting a hot water bottle on my feetsies (because we don't want to turn on the heating yet) and wallowing in some classic scares. But I have found this harder to do with games. Most games are, obviously, a very interactive experience,…

The Sims 4 hits the slopes in new expansion Snowy Escape, with a trailer reveal today

EA have partially revealed the newest expansion pack for The Sims 4 - showing a modest glimpse of shoulder, if you will. But friends, it is a cold shoulder. The expansion is called Snowy Escape, and until a trailer is revealed later today, that's pretty much all we have to go on. That, and a screenshot collage of cheery Sims doing winter sport activities like…

Feature: No such thing as too many cooks when they're this cute

Custom content makers for The Sims 4 knock it out of the park yet again with this amazing toy kitchen

Long term readers of my constant Sims 4 Simsposting will know that by far my favourite custom content maker right now is Ravasheen. Imagine my delight when I found out that, after three months of work and collaboration with another creator, Panda Sama, the pair have produced an extremely adorable tiny play kitchen for toddlers and kids. Further long term readers of my work may…

The Sims 4’s Star Wars expansion is out now

Captain's log, stardate 74156.3. We've encountered an entity calling itself 'Electronic Arts', which demonstrates godlike powers and treats human lives as pawns in a game for its own twisted enjoyment. It tells us we are its latest toys, and our homes, our heroes, and our decor shall join the fantasy it calls The Sims 4, declaring our imprisonment to be a 'game pack' named Star…

The Sims 4 is having an extremely normal one over its Star Wars DLC

The Sims 4 is once again courting (mild, predictable) controversy, this time because of the upcoming Star Wars(TM) Journey To Batuu game pack. The DLC itself doesn't arrive for another few days (coming to stores near you on Tuesday the 8th), but Simfluencers like Plumbella have posted preview impressions of it that aren't glowing.This has not improved the mood of a vocal section of Sims…

EA Play has arrived on Steam

Electronic Arts left Steam nine years ago to do their own thing with Origin, but over the last few months their games have been returning. Now, their subscription service, EA Play, is on Valve's platform, too, allowing you to play games like the Dragon Age series, Battlefield V, and more on Steam for a monthly or yearly fee. It's not just the old stuff EA…

EA’s subscription service is coming to Steam this month, but only the basic version

Electronic Arts have rebranded their Origin Access subscription service to EA Play, and announced that it will launch on Steam on August 31st. As before, it lets people play many of EA's games for as long as they pay, with a pricier tier giving access to their newest games. However, it seems only the basic version of EA Play is coming to Steam - EA…

Feature: Name a more iconic duo

The Sims 4 x true crime is the best new YouTube series of 2020

Have I told you lately, reader, that I really, properly, stonkingly love how weird each and every single one of us are? Even if we manage to keep it on the quiet (which we may not: recently, my predilection for eating dry, buttered Weetabix for breakfast was shared at a company-wide meeting), we all have strange and specific depths. And when weird worlds collide, the…

The Sims 4 will fix dark skin tones and add new ones this year

The Sims series has a reputation for being inclusive and always striving to let players create Sims that represent themselves. For years though, Black players have been pointing out that The Sims 4 could really stand to do better with its dark skin tones that look desaturated compared to the skin of actual people. Thanks in part to a Twitter hashtag and a petition, Maxis…

You can now make the Sims 4 be The Truman Show literally as well as metaphorically

The Sims 4 has always kind of been The Truman Show as god game, hasn't it? You make your little puppet people, you control every aspect of their lives and personality from birth until death, you make them get in the pool and then remove the ladder. I am become Ed Harris, destroyer of worlds, right? And now, thanks to an incredible build creation shared…
