HOW THE FUCK IS THAT AN IMPROVEMENT?

Even it was horribly done in Sims 3 at least the idea behind it is great. The neighborhood feels more alive, you see your neighbors' story progress and cars are relevent.
So instead of optimizing the open neighborhood idea they remove it and call that improvement.

I dunno man, but it's not as if pools were a big deal anyway. They'll probably be added through DLC later on for a very reasonable price.

The main reason I have little interest in this game is because a lot of DLC will be made for them like they all have.

The main problem with that is the games are so insanely sensitive that if you basically install a new DLC your entire installation can break and you might have to delete everything and start from scratch.

Shit's so fucking laggy. Sometimes it gets so slow that simply turning the camera causes it to not respond for like 5 seconds and suddenly turn it. Loading times are a bitch. moving around the map to a new lot has horrible stuttering associated with it. Not to mention the game makes my shit run really loud.

You should try the sims 2. It's easy to pirate and install. Doesn't take a supercomputer to run well. In general it's better than The Sims 3 which tries to do so much that it just fails at. The only catch is like any other sims game it takes a ton of HDD space and therefore it's a very big download.

I played the pirated base game for about as long as I could stomach it, which was until I saw all it had to offer. No expansions were out at that point.

Later I bought Sims 3 complete but never actually played or even installed it.

That said, I really can't imagine the game running terribly for anyone considering just how budgeted my old rig was at the time I was playing.

How the fuck was Sims 2 better again? I think you faggots are simply being nostalgic.

>No water house that you can transport and move around in the ocean like in the Sims 3. Even park it in the middle of the water and travel in waterboats in and out of your house.
>No Mermaid waifus that you can catch, have sex with, and even impregnate.
>Loading time is horrendous, seeing only one household slot made things terribly lonely and didn't feel like you were living in a community or neighborhood.
>Lacks the exploration that you get in Sims 3 like taking a quick stroll anywhere in the map, even small graveyards, instead of being forced to visit a lot and its limit border
>You can genuinely make fat sims and have them lose all the weight later on in the story, instead of just a Sim with a beerbelly.
>Diagonal building and placing things diagonal instead of leaving an empty fucking wall like in the Sims 2.

Need I say more??

Well they make casual games.

Casual Sims players won't care for any of this.
Casual Sports games, casual racing games, casual RPGs with Bioware, Casual FPS with DICE, Casual RTS with whatever the fuck is left of CnC, CASUAL EVERYTHING.

And casuals don't care for fucking standards or anything really. They play games casually. They buy a 60$ game and play it for 10 hours and then in one year they maybe remember it and play it again a few hours.

Just go online and look at steam achievements. See how many people finished their games and on what difficulty. You can also do this on PSN now.

Like 70% of the people that buy gmaes never actually finish them.

EA games business strategy:

>Fund outside talent, outside talent create good original game.
>You funded the original version, you own the rights to all the sequels.
>Get rid of the sucker that made the original game, give project to idiot that will just do what management tell him to do it.
>All sequels cost less to make but will still sell the same because of idiots that follow brand/franchise loyality.
>Kill franchise, hence and repeat.

There's a breast slider in AA2.
Also for waist and figure.

The "breast slider" probably has more configuration options than the Space Shuttle.
Everything from color and texture to areola sizes, roundness, plumpness, bounciness, direction of the nipples and cleavage...

it just goes on.

I will say the butt options are lacking though.

Nah, eye options arent enough and it clearly shows in AA2. You need to have the ability to tweek facial proportions, where the eyes are situated, how wide they are appart, how large etc.

It is actually quite understandable though. I borrowed a PS3 and played some of the heavy advertiseda and "good" but not super good games. And honestly, they were all so boring I did not finish one of them.
If a casual that are not that into gaming will play these games, I completely understand why he/she would just stop playing, the games are just not fun. They buy up the hype and the advertisement and then they actually play it and realize they are not having fun, and repeat.

Sims 4 is doing everything I want, frankly. The complete open world was pointless. The art style is far nicer, I never used create a style.

That said, I never buy Sim games on release, I always wait for a sale or bundle pack. But I guess if you're going to buy it day one then you could complain about lack of features. Your own fault though.

Its magic anon. If a game is 64bit it runs flawlessly and is 100% (proved by science) better.

It doesn't make much difference. You can access more ram, but for a game like this you wouldn't get anything out of it. Sims 3 REALLY could have done with being 64bit, but Sims 4 doesn't have the ram-hogging bullshit of its "realistic" style or open world.

In short the people complaining about it are faggots.

>>
>>258357006
You're not addressing the core complaint.

The devs saw tons of lag, so rather than make a better game to keep open world with no lag, they did away with open world entirely to reduce lag. It was a lazy move that sacrificed one pro for another.

I'm surprisingly excited for Sims 4. I mean, like the other games I won't buy it so it's not like I feel cheated.

Pretty much all the features that are gone I never used or I don't mind are gone.

I mean, if I was a fan or panning to buy it I would be pissed. But Sims have always been a series I've just played for a weekend every other year.

And I like the artstyle.

I just hope there will be a decent mod community.

>>258366803
Well. Again. I don't really care. As I said, the Sims is a pretty boring series. It's fun for a weekend and it's about that. My expectation are so low already that I just don't care because I will play if for a few days, then forget about it. Then next year, I will do the same.

Sure, those few days might be fairly enjoyable, but it's still just Sims. It's like getting angry ad CoD. I just don't care anymore. The only difference is, I can at least get some enjoyment from Sims still.

There's no excuse for it I agree. EA is being fucking mongoloid retarded jews and they should get all hate for it. I just don't care.

So I remain strangely exited for a few days of kinda having fun. Maybe this time I might actuality be able to run it for more than half an hour without it crashing. Probably not.

I don't think anyone should buy The Sims 4. If fact, I think doing so makes you disgusting.

The latest Sims content I bought was the Sims 2 the base game because I was young and didn't know what torrenting was, and I see no reason to change that. Even if the were making a good Sims game.

Also. Just for fun. These are the features that I can actually see myself getting a bit upset about:

Actually. I hope it will be. Sims is one of EA's biggest cash cows. There is no way they would ever let it go that easy.

Also, there was the kinda recent Sims Medieval game + pirate expansion which didn't do too well. It didn't completely bomb but the Medieval side of franchise is pretty much dead right now.

But it still has the possibility of flopping badly.

The people in Maxis sounds like a bunch bad programmers and coders, because they are so bad at getting pas these "technical limitations" that TS3 was plagued with that they had to remove a shit ton of features originally present in TS3.

Then again, remembering Simcity, the're probably just lying though their ass again.

>>258368948
And then of course there are the millions of console ports.

Oh, and wasn't there something like The Sims: Castaway or something? Remember it being a bit like Medieval. Fucking great idea but it just wasn't fun to play.
>>
>>258369101
You're not implying this is a bad thing are you?
>>
>>258368948
I meant the sims online, and I played that a bunch of times back a decade ago. I wasn't sure it was a flop, but I never hear about it.

>>258369101
>Will Wright will watch as EA burns his creation to the ground again, just like Spore and simcity
>>
>>258369125
Well. Yes. And it flopping badly will make EA(hopefully) take a step back and see what made it flop, and fix it for the next release.

>>258369183
And then you have to uninstall it too. Every single individual expansion pack has it's own fucking separate uninstaller.

I grew up with this franchise so it's like witnessing Resident Evil die off due to Capcom being completely retarded.

I like it. It's not sensationalistic. It's a joke. It's meant to be funny, because the DLC itself is a joke.

Anon, we're not the targeted audience. Ever since Sims 2, the targeted audience has been women. Women will buy this no matter what. They aren't concerned with shit under the floorboards.

>>258369704
Not sure there have been a proper sequel to BF yet. If anything, Hardline shows us that the real BF team might be taking a step back and actually doing some proper work this time. Having another team creating a spin off as to not let the brand get some well deserved rest.

If you were hinting on BF3 then it sold ridiculously well.

Am I the only person who still plays the first Sims?

Then again, it's mainly because my computer is so shitty I can't play anything beyond it.
>>
>>258358575

Faith in Maxis? You mean faith in EA? Not after they clusterfucked everything maxis has already done.

Tell me Sim City was a decent game at launch without offline and mods. I fucking dare you.
>>
The character creator is an improvement over the previous one but it's still not nearly good enough. If they'd make it more flexible there'd be entertainment value in just getting any character or person I want into the game to do stupid dumb sim shit, but in it's current state it's very limited. There's a couple of instances where it's just fine, like if you try to make this character >>258369929
but you'll hit a brick wall with a lot of other shit. The main issue right now is probably hairstyles, which are predefined and you can't do anything about them.
>>

You can play League of Sims and be famous and rich with your e-sports money.

>>258370179
These fan communities seem to indicate that they know about this shit and surely a good portion of them must be women. Not to mention the bad word of mouth from the people that actually buy this game will probably cause this game to perform less than EA expects it to.
>>
>>258370179

Confirmed. I told my wife she is going to pirate it. She says she won't because then ea won't make more. She wants to support her game..

I told her I want to support Sim City but not the way it is now.
>>
>>258370513
It's a decent game.
>>
>>258355917

Because removing features that were in the past few games just to sell as DLC is fucking disgusting.

It would a nice gesture of them to add something that's been a DLC in every sim (like pets or vacations) till now in the base game, instead of remove shit that used to be in the base game.

But this is EA we're talking about. Which is why the game is going to be shit.
>>
>>258370513
No I mean faith in Sims Studio or Maxis in Name Only. Notice I didn't name Maxis for a reason.

And I don't know what the fuck you're talking about with that Sim City shit. Nowhere does my post imply that the developers are good.
>>
>>258358598

With an i5 750 OC'd to 4ghz and an HD 7870 I still had frame dropping like crazy when doing the simplest shit.

Most of the time I couldn't even hold 45-50fps unless I was zoomed into the room my sims were in.

What in the fuck? Are those not considered an essential household item, or does the game take place in 1920?

>>258369840
More than half of the shit mentioned in (>>258357013 >>258357104 >>258357180 >>258357254) was already in the base Sims 3 game. The patches didn't add as much as people think. Some Expansion packs didn't even have build mode additions.

Some stuff even had workarounds, basements didn't even come till ambitions yet you could still create your own with terrain tools, foundations and modular stairs.
