too wicked awesome. I made a bachelor with a manservant who just cooks and cleans the house. Decided to look for a partner in workplace. Discovered she's not that rich so I dumped her. A job opportunity gave me a chance to have dinner with a rich client. Went over to her house and it was huge, but she appears to be married. No problem, I hang out with her after work in the park and took her home for some woohooos after a plate of fish n chips.

I told her to divorce her man and move in, taking in her daughter too. She brought in 5k, a car and laptop. Score! Now my stepdaughter's learning how to cook pancakes for daddy while wearing bikinis while i plan to get her a new mom in 2 weeks.   Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

As a first time Sims-player, I'm really, really enjoying this. The UI is just so smooth that decorating and building is just pure fun. I haven't seen much of the actual game yet, I'm too busy cheating and building! ACK!

Yeah I turned off the tutorials and was shocked to discover that the whole neighbourhood actually ages, get married, have kids, and get promotions as you progress with your active family.

Really? I haven't touched the Sims since, well, forever. But that's some fun sounding shit.

It's great. I haven't explored all the careers, but right now i'm working on my political career ladder and there's a Fund raising requirement to boost your job performance rating and quicken your promotion. You can either throw a fund raising party or solicit donations from door to door. And after that you can dip your hand into it and pocket 10% of the total donations.

Yes, you can step out of your office, walk to an occupied house and ring on the bell to chit chat and woohoo wives while their husbands are away. And you can intentionally get them pregnant too.  why so serious?

I was working on my presidential bid when I died of old age. Fuck.  swamp poop I was sure I was going to be promoted on my next work day too.

It's recommended by doctors. It crashes to desktop a bit and might do so while you're saving... so I'm making a LOT of saves. It's probably a crappy crack though and this is a guaranteed purchase for me.

It's an odd idea but it seems like EA has actually taken a milk cow and throughly changed/improved it. That's a gold star in my book.

Interesting.  I had a birthday party with cake, but I didn't touch the cake.  Aged once.

Went back to clean up the place, accidently touched the cake, and aged myself into old age by having another birthday.

Damn time-traveling cake.

I haven't had this problem. Ever. Even during a sleepless night and 5-6 hours of Sims 3.

Yeah it's pretty stable for me. I can alt tab smoothly and hasn't crashed once but they really should've included an auto save option just to save on tears and rage. The improvements they've made to the career ladder is fantastic. No longer are you forced to upgrade 5-7 skills and felt like grinding on books while on a sofa all day just to gain that promotion. Every job have some differences but most of the time you're required to do something outside your working hour to boost work performance rating like political fundraising or interrogating the locals as a cop.

My latest family of two got a free police cruiser from advancing to the vice squad while the stay at home wife just picked up a HUGE chunk of meteorite worth $3,8k from using the space telescope.  DRILLING AND MANLINESS

Interesting; according to the official Sims 3 page registering your copy online grants free download of another whole pre-made town to play in, plus $10 worth of sim money for their online item shop. Makes one wonder just how accidental that torrent leak was.  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

I know that can be upsetting, but isn't it a foregone conclusion that any upper management of a large company is going to be a right winger?

I should get back to nature, too.  You know, like going to a shop for groceries instead of the computer.  Maybe a condo in the woods that doesn't even have a health club or restaurant attached.  Buy a car with only two cup holders or something.

He left EA to join the "EA Didn't Want to Pay Me for 365 Days a Year Since I Only Come Up With Something New Every 7" Thinktank. EA still gets to pick and choose whether they make any of his....ideas before anyone else does.

Yeah ya pricks, Schild even dropped a subtle hint in his sim's screenshot. You'll notice his sim's bank account mirrors his own and you heartless fuckers SHOULD have picked up on this as his way of reaching out to us for help.

Goddamn games is addicting.  I wanted to try it out since I haven't played since the first week of 2.  This game has fixed almost all of my complaints about the first two.  Now if only I could turn off aging as my Romantic partner has suddenly become old and I don't want to marry her anymore since she'll die in a few days and I'm just barely halfway there.   All that relationship work for naught.

Gee, astronauts only have to work for one day in a week.  awesome, for real

My Rock Star only has to work 3, but he's on the 8th step of the music path.

When I order it, Schild, I'll do it through the Aff link. I'm waiting until the first paycheck comes through.

I probably will, since I don't need to recieve it right on release day now.

Made myself - Slob, Couch Potato, Computer Whiz, Book Lover, and something else... I gain Fun points for sleeping!
About 8:30 last night it occured to me that I should make dinner at some point.

I will say though, I am not happy that 90% of the sims in the game look like Jay Leno.

Then it wouldn't be a secret?

For the aging, have you looked in the options (or was a mod to the ini made to enable it showing in the options)?

Hahahaha!  I'm really good at this!

There's almost certainly an aging-off cheat in the game, there was one in Sims 2.
