Discussion: TS4 Conversation Post

Inspired by the disjointed conversation of Tumblr (and worry about annoying people with lost of text posts while attempting to have one, and so on...), I'd like to try to have a conversation here. What are you excited for in TS4 from what we've seen so far? The return of rotational gameplay? The breastfeeding option? The awesome cat vest?! Are you worried about the sim count and lot limit? Do you love or hate the style? Or are you over it all already? Let's hear it! :)

I'm not around as often as I used to be, so please talk amongst yourselves here as much as you like! I do get windows of time to participate (usually with a sleeping, teething baby worn on me in a carrier, or when my toddler wants to watch "the YouTubes"), so I will jump in whenever I can.

Also, hi! It's been a while. :) I miss this.

qkkk------------------------- 0<q This was Mini-Meetme's contribution to the topic. Her very first typed "words"! But I like the way TS4 looks so far, with some things I worry a bit about - the depth of personality, emotions being too gimmicky, and why are teens the same height as adults?! I don't care about cars and pools, but I do wish they'd at least say "there are toddlers" soon, because I'm getting a tiny bit concerned. Also CAT VEST. <3 Edit: Oops - meant for it to be a reply to the main post and not the comment, oh well!

There was no toddler icon in the newer Video discussing genetics. That was pretty disheartening.

That video was also from E3, though, meaning that it was the same alpha CAS we've been seeing all along.

They just announced no toddlers. I am now very sad. :(

Yeah, that is just dumb. People were wanting more life stages and then they go and get rid of one.

Exactly! And it's beyond stupid to include young adults and not toddlers. Do they jump from babies to children, or have we even see babies yet? Maybe there's no babies!

I suspect we'll have either more 'active' babies and it'll jump from Baby to child as we had with TS1. It just... So many conflicting feelings with TS4. I love the CAS, I love the cartoonish styles that everyone seems to hate on and the soft, vibrant world and even the aspiration-trait system appeals to me, but then they toss these backpedals out that just... ugh...

It makes me concerned with what will come in the future. One of the things I am all about with TS2 is the open world feel of just roaming and exploring and my horses. I love my animal babies and the horses was an awesome addition for me. I fear that with all the backpedaling we're seeing, that they'll nix that, too.

I'm just so deeply 'meh' with all this. They give me something I'm excited about then yank two things I LIKED about TS3 away, left and right.

Seriously?! Why on earth would they do that?

I don't get that either. :(

This might very well be a dealbreaker for me. Because it also shows that they've probably paid very, very little attention to family interactions in general, breastfeeding and "make face" aside. I was waiting on toddler information to preorder, now it looks like I'll be a dirty pirate instead.

I keep thinking about how little sense it all makes. They've finally added breastfeeding! :D ... but taken away... TODDLERS?! Why care about making one better and more realistic, while removing the other entirely?

I'm trying my best not to take it too personally, but when you're a stay at home parent to a baby and a toddler (and before long, two toddlers), it's hard not to feel a little put off by having your day to day life experience completely left out of a life simulator. It's just a game, I know, but way to make me feel like my story doesn't matter at all, EA!

What??? Are the babies just going to jump to children? Isn't that what happened in the Sims 1?

Hi there! Most of my activity is now on my Tumblr, so please head over there if you'd like to see what I'm up to. Story updates will still be posted here.
