What Remains Of Edith Finch’s house rebuilt in The Sims 4 is wild

As an inadvertent cowboy builder whose Sims face a much greater risk from incompetence than malice, I am in awe of players who manage to build beautiful homes. Case in point, YouTuber Jess Harts has built a recreation of the sprawling, unreal family home from What Remains Of Edith Finch inside The Sims 4. Yes, the house that has a different style for every family…

The Sims 4: Realm Of Magic looks pretty Pottery

I’ve burnt my feet in a fireplace, severely concussed myself in Kings Cross station, and my mugshot hangs in every owl sanctuary throughout the land. It’s fair to say that Hogwarts just doesn’t want me, but that's okay, as I’ve sniffed out a potential replacement. The next The Sims 4 game pack Realm Of Magic might not be an entirely original prospect, but since we’re…

Become a mermaid today in The Sims 4’s Island Living expansion

We can finally return to the seas in The Sims 4 with today's launch of the Island Living expansion, just walk from the beach directly into the water. Given that our virtuapeeps can befriend dolphins and also be mermaids, I'm not sure why EA have spent so much time making new activities on the new tropical island. If we can go in the sea, why…

The Sims 4: Island Living is not set in the Outer Hebrides

When EA announced today that The Sims 4's next expansion would be Island Living, I imagined a quiet existence in a cottage somewhere round the outer Hebrides, starting every day with a bracing swim watched by seals and maybe, eventually, finding I too was a selkie but my skin was callously kept from me but I sneak into the cruel fisherman's hut and steal it…

The Sims 4 unearths the secrets of StrangerVille today

It's all gone a bit X-Files in The Sims 4 today. Or at least a little Eureka, toning down the menace levels a little. In the new Game Pack, StrangerVille, your Sim can respond to the call of action and head out to a sleepy little desert town to unravel a possible conspiracy. There's an abandoned lab in a crater, glowing purple plants are popping…

The Sims 4 visits the very normal town of StrangerVille next week

Body-snatchers, government conspiracies and potentially extraterrestrial menaces are headed to The Sims 4 in its next add-on, the StrangerVille game pack, due out Tuesday, February 26th. Set in the kind of quiet desert town where apparently only this kind of thing seems to happen, there's a whole bunch of new paranormal detective activities to get tied up in, and a story to unravel. While clearly not…

The Sims 4 Meaningful Stories mod makes moods more relatable

Your average Sim in The Sims 4 is a mercurial creature, prone to flights of fancy and sudden mood swings. While that's great at simulating a telenovela, it makes for some unpredictable tales. Modder "roBurky" has spent the past two years trying to imbue these digital homunculi with a little more humanity, and the result is the first major release of the Meaningful Stories mod.…

The Sims 4 gets first-person camera view, new expansion

EA have added a first-person camera view to The Sims 4, giving the opportunity to watch lives unfold from inside characters' heads. See through the eyes of an idiot guided by wonky logic and incomprehensible whims and desires, watching their hands touch and do things you know are foolish. And in the game. Oh, and a new expansion is out today.

The Sims 4 getting a celebrity lifestyle in Get Famous expansion

I've always thought The Sims an ideal series to bundle up under a 'pay a monthly fee, get all the new stuff' subscription service, playing the endless add-ons without fuss, but disappointingly EA think otherwise. They've announced a new expansion for The Sims 4 and no, it won't be covered by their Origin Access Premier doodad. Get Famous will introduce the new region of Del…

The Sims 4 Seasons blasts Simlish Steal My Sunshine

A Simlish version of Len's red-hot summer jam Steal My Sunshine accompanies the announcement of the 'Seasons' expansion for The Sims 4, and it's twisting my melon, man. If you're going cruising this long weekend, lash this one out in your car and enjoy confusion spreading across the faces of people next to you at the traffic lights. Sims 2 and 3 both received Seasons…

Pet lovers rejoice, because your cherished canine and feline friends can now scamper around in The Sims 4.

In the future, after The Brands take over, people bubbling with folksy charm will be required to say "It's raining the fourth Sims 4 expansion pack out there" when pointing out heavy rain. EA today announced that The Sims 4 [official site] will expand again with Cats & Dogs on November 10th, see. As you might guess, it will focus on our dearest furry friends…

Imprison toddlers in ball pools with incoming Sims 4 toddler stuff pack (I assume)

The Sims 4's Toddler Stuff Pack (stuff packs being the tier of paid DLC that adds cosmetics and objects and things around a particular theme) is how I found out I have opinions about ball pool physics and ball pools as represented in games. I have frequented many a ball pool - sometimes even a ball lido - and I know that The Sims 4…

This Sims 4 mystery house is almost certainly haunted

I've always wanted to visit the Winchester Mystery House, which Wikipedia describes as being renowned for "its architectural curiosities, and its lack of any master building plan". There's something about mis-matched and confused architecture that I found both exciting and faintly terrifying. It's at least in part because every house and apartment building I've ever lived in has lacked any architectural curiosities. Not even a…

The Sims 4 Parenthood embraces teen drama

The Sims 4 [official site] Parenthood pack is out now. The Parenthood pack is distinct from the toddler update which arrived in January and fleshed out that post-baby, pre-school period for the characters in your digital dollhouse. Toddlers were a free update, whereas Parenthood is paid DLC which seeks to change the relationships between parent and child characters making it more about guiding the development…

Sims 4 invents awful new stage of human life, ‘toddler’

Discovering the consequences of playing god, the fools behind The Sims 4 [official site] have invented a new stage of human life and this so-called 'toddler' is truly dreadful. These squished children throw temper tantrums, injure themselves, throw things, fall over, demand attention, and have the most ghastly taste in decor. They seem awful. What did Sims players do to deserve this, EA? Simeers, your…

The Sims 4 getting vampiric mini-expansion this month

Bela Lugosi may be dead but soon you'll be able to revive him and stalk around undead undead undead in The Sims 4 [official site]. The next DLC 'Game Pack' for EA's live 'em up will introduces vampires who, sure, will have supernatural powers, drink blood, and own ha-ha-hilarious spookhouses but ultimately live the same as everyone else. That's the ennui of the vampiric condition…

The Sims 4 City Living Expansion Moves In Today

The Sims 4 City Living expansion [official site] is due out today (and already out in North America) so this is probably a good time to look at what it actually involves. I've lived in several cities over the course of my life so, if nothing else, I feel really well placed to look at the features list and see if they fit with my…
