I was going through a review for the Sims 4, when I noticed it called it the "Sandbox of Terror". I couldn't help but laugh.

It has gotten me to thinking... One of the draws of the Sims [Or any simulation game] is the game is what you make it.

Also, my first EVER random meteor!


Speaking of fire, this is what happened when my sim's family ate Hot and Sour soup:

I always found sims' wild reaction to hot and sour soup especially ridiculous, since I've eaten the stuff and it's not even all that spicy.

I've actually never had that happen before then.

@ Axiom - Go get 'im, Grandpa! :D

Here's an amusing little glitch...



That's one way to get more horsepower, I guess. :P

Poor thing, she looks terrified riding this.  I thought it was funny.

I have something I think you'll love.
Have you ever seen that meme online with the artist, Bob Ross? Who's painting a nice landscape (or whatever was edited in) while smiling at the viewer?
I found him. In the Sims 3. Right on the side of the Face Paint Tent.

@ Brisayshi - That is awesome! I've really come to love the subtle (and sometimes not-so-subtle) pop culture references in this game.

Along similar lines...



Anyone ever notice the number on the back of the hockey snowman in Seasons? 99 was the jersey number worn by Wayne Gretzky, arguably the greatest NHL hockey player of all time. It would seem that EA made a nice little homage to him. :)

There are a lot of awesome easter eggs in the game. My favorites have to be the Breaking Bad-themed street art pieces. I have a pic of one of them from my game:



Ignoring my sim in the foreground, the piece in back of her (the hat/sunglasses/mustache one) was lifted from Breaking Bad; it's a stylized image of Heisenberg/Walter White:



(This is also where I have to post the disclaimer that Breaking Bad is absolutely not a family-friendly show)

@ Trip - Easter egg...that's the term I was trying to think of but couldn't remember. It's been a long week. :P

Here's one that some of our older members (and any fans of retro television) might get:



The in-game fire truck is emblazoned with the number 51. This appears to be in reference to the 1970's era T.V. show Emergency!, a medical/rescue drama featuring the firefighters of Station 51 in Los Angeles.

My mother (who loves that show) got a laugh out of it when I showed her. :P

As a constant internet-goer and a complete sucker for silly little things like Bob Ross, I was in love.
Sims Easter Eggs are great. Of course, there's the awesome book names. "The Vampire Blogs" and "Game of Thorns" :)

So I was setting up a new game file in Aurora Skies, but when it loaded, all the houses and lots were floating, like it ain't no thing.



So I'm thinking, "Okay, that's weird. The rest of it should come in soon, though, right?" only to scroll over a bit to find this:



I just don't know what happened, guys.

I think those pictures gave me heartburn.

That literally happens to me all the time, but it vanished when I go into play mode.

Perhaps they are still loaded, Gwendy... In my save on Isla Paradiso, at the start of the game, all of my furniture would be all white and cube-ish and it take a few while to have it running smoothly.

I was looking through my pictures of the carnival today and I noticed something was disturbing about the elephants on the ride. Has anyone else noticed?



This one looks like it wants to eat Marigold



And this one in front just looks terrified

Ok, I officially am not buying the carnival. Why? Because it is so scary.

I had something that I thought was rather random happen in another game. Thought I'd post here to see if anyone else has experienced it.

Had a family (the one Anna is from, actually) and the woman married to Anna's brother was the oldest. My lifespan is set to 100 sim days... she lived to 112 and then died. I didn't find that too odd as I know sims can live quite a bit longer than their lifespans.

This is the odd part.

She was playing chess with her husband (Anna's brother). Grim turned up, so she stood up and did the whole dying thing. Her husband was 102 days old at this point AND had completed the jogging challenge so he would have a longer life. Literally, as soon as she completed her death animations, he died. Poor old Grim didn't even have time to leave the lot!

I found that... really rather odd...

Hehehh, it's what I also experienced..

I have this pictures.. Beware, it's very old, from 2011 :P

I played my sim, Laurent and he married Bella Bachelor. Bella died first and she was 94 days old


It seems that Laurent couldn't live longer without his sweet wife.. He was 101 days old..

Apparently Anna felt the need to stick her wings out the window of the limo...

Because the cool evening breeze feels good on fairy wings, maybe? :P
