So...been playing the sims, and doing minimal other things. I like everything they've added to the game with this expansion pack, but this is really something that could have and should have been implemented in the game from the start! But no, why would they do that? This way they make more money! ...I'm sure there are people that have simply given up on supporting the sims series because of EA being retarded about it in so many ways, but I don't think it's really making that much of an impact or they might have actually released a WORKING GAME. I mean really. Five hours after the release, tons of people still couldn't play, because they work "working on the problem" meaning, they're trying to make a patch real quick so we can at least start the game up. (hell, we couldn't even INSTALL without this patch) Later, they'll come out with another patch to fix bugs in the expansion pack, and fix what this pack inevitable will mess up from the other packs.
So there's the end of my little rant. Don't get me wrong, I love the game and I enjoy it a lot. I just think it's in their best interest to work on some basic concepts, like releasing working products and maybe also when they make a new game (like sims 4) they start off with some aspects that they expanded upon in the last version of the game instead of rehashing old expansions. LIKE PETS. I want pets, dammit!
