@Magpie2012, Do you get the sales there? I think Get to Work is on sale now at a much cheaper price, and I'm sure that Get Together will be in some of the sales later on. But maybe a fairy godmother will come through for you earlier than that!

I was really lucky when it came to GTW it was donated to me by the lovely @justproud2b for being a loyal follower of his blog and Twitter. And I won spa day from Simsonline. And my cousin gave me the base game as a thank you for tutoring him through Matric/Grade 12 math and physics. So all I've really paid for was outdoor retreat, luxury party and perfect patio. My biggest problem when it comes to affordability is that 99.9% of my salary goes to pay the debts my parents accrued by putting me through varsity to get my degree. And I am in a distinctly minimum wage job. The only reason I could afford the others was because my folks let me have my first salary to spoil myself because they knew I would soon be tied down like a real grownup...

The sales do come down here but for the most part you only score about 50 bucks. Although I've been loving the on-the-house specials Origin gives lol

Think I'll be too old when GT goes on sale that way ;-)

But enough of my sob story... I think another thing I'm looking forward to is the different scenarios our wonderful authors are going to be able to come up with! Just like when GTW came out!

Well, going by the last few packs @Magpie2012  it won't be long before GT goes on sale. A pain to wait but totally the best option in the face of prices like those! (We say petrol here too)

I read somewhere (a SimGuru tweet?) that the population threshold is being raised. Hopefully, it's enough to greatly reduce culling.

I'm looking forward to the club feature. It seems like it will make it easier to find mates and make friends since you can exclude or include specific traits. As with most XP's, I'm also looking forward to new content. I am trying to stay mostly CC free and having more buy and build mode stuff is a big plus.

I'm not particularly drawn to Windenburg itself because the Tudor style isn't really my thing, but I am looking forward to having new Sims around.

 :(   Well, it will be after Christmas before I get my new computer, so I will have to experience it through reading what others post.

We have to wait for his retirement check and SS check to arrive before we have the money; so I might as well wait to see if there will be any after Christmas sales that I can get it (computer and game) cheaper.

@Janna ouch, nothing worse than having to wait while reading about everyone's excitement. Still... I bet you will be able to find some amazing sales that will make the wait totally worth while.  :)

Since I won't be able to buy the computer, I think I will treat myself to buying the game. 
I can keep my old keyboard and mouse to save money and get news one later, that will save me some money and let me get the games.   
One check will be mailed on the 16th, so it could arrive anytime from the 22nd to 26th; if we are lucky. With it being Christmas it can be delayed in the mail.  The other is direct deposit, so it will be on the 23rd.   

I am hoping that the computer will be on sale to clear out the "old" for the new ones that will be coming in.  And hoping that they didn't sale out and don't have any left.  Will start reading review to pick out a couple of others for backup.

I'm looking forward to it all, just so that I can try out the new features and see how the clubs work, as well as check out the new outfits/hairstyles, see what trouble I could cause. Hopefully the new ep will inspire me to write a new immortal story, since I killed off my first attempt by accident and not been inspired or had the time to do another.

I very badly want Origin to hurry up and release it as they teased me the other day, I pre-ordered it via origin as they had the better deal compared to EB Games and got the email to say it would be available on the 8th, the 8th comes along and I get a second email to say, sorry you don't get it until the 10th.. I admit I was a little devastated to know I'd have to wait even longer because it comes out on the day I have to work, meaning I won't get to enjoy it until my next day off.

The trailer they released with the singing, gave me a good giggle and of course the song is stuk in my head but at least the days might go a little faster now.. one can hope.

@Franki

That is a bummer, I'm going to have to wait until after Christmas definitely, maybe later, Can't imagine how it would feel to have think it will be arriving the day supposed to be released to find you have to wait not only two days, but longer due to work.

I'm excited for the new town. That's always the first thing I check -- new town, and what can I build there.

Otherwise, I'm interested in testing out the club system. It seems interesting from the guides here, so I'll probably buy it this Saturday and start playing with it.

@Janna you should add a post to Carl's give away. link here

This Get Together give away is open to forum members who qualify but you can follow the link and read all about it.

@Bunny Hermione I think the town is lovely and it's has reignited my building interests all over again. Even though I'm not a huge fan of Tudor style building although I like looking at it @reggikko I've really enjoyed the more modern elements that this town has and have had a blast building some modern houses on the island.

Thanks for the link and the info on the giveaway.  I don't feel it is right for me to enter as I don't buy my games through Origin.  My son has a membership with GameStop and he gets points from them every time something is bought.

He is on disability so every penny counts and I like to help him out.  I yell "JOSH!" every time I push the wrong button and can't figure out what I did   ???   :).  He usually pushes one or two buttons and shakes his head as he walks away.    ;D

I will be reading the posts about the game, and I need to brush up on the articles on how to play sims 4.  I know that I will be lost for a while in how to do things.

I tried to mention @Janna on that giveaway thread but for some reason the mentions don't always work for me from Tapatalk...
