Shock As New Sims 3 Expansion Packs Announced

Far in the distance, a tiny speck appears on the grassy horizon. You can't quite make it out - it could be anything, but it is moving. It is moving towards you, faster and faster now - you can make out a person's features. It is a brunette with a bubblegum pink streak in her hair, and dark black square-rimmed glasses. She is wonderfully beautiful; just a dream. Like how you imagine Kristen Bell would be if she had brown hair and the build of an Amazon that had let herself go a bit and was about five years younger. So not that much like Kristen Bell but JUST ENOUGH. She is running, running, getting closer and closer - she is almost here, with an exhausted look on her face.

"RPS!" she says. "RPS! I bring NEWS! THERE ARE GOING TO BE SIMS 3 EXPANSION PACKS!" She coughs and splutters with the effort. "That's right! The Sims 3 Into the Future and The Sims 3 Movie Stuff!" she says, stopping when she sees your frankly quite disappointed face. "I am not good at this news thing," she sighs.

Imagine I had been living in a room with no windows, no doors, starved of any knowledge about videogames, culture, any kind of exposure to the outside world. No, dear readers, I know what you are thinking you are thinking - haha Cara! You don't know anything about videogames or culture in general anyway! I mean you only read Ulysses for the Molly sex scene! And you didn't like it you Philistine! Well you know what? Even if I knew nothing about videogames EVER, I am still pretty sure I would know that THERE WILL BE MORE SIMS 3 EXPANSION PACKS UNTIL THE EARTH DISINTEGRATES AND CRASHES INTO THE SUN or Sims 4 comes out and is more popular.

Here is a trailer of Sims 3 Into the Future:

It will be available October 22nd of This Year. Here is a trailer for The Sims 3 Movie Stuff where you get to make The Sims look more like a movie and things, "tell more unique stories with décor, furnishings, and clothing inspired by iconic movie genres," it says.

That will be out on Sept 10th, according to The News.
