Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

About Love, Hate, and the other Review
Simple feelings. Complex puzzles.

1. Tutorial

~The tutorial is a quick walkthrough for "The Sims" Goto
the options menu, and find the house icon. The family
that lives in the original household will be evicted. The Newbie
household is where it will take you. If you need any other
help about the tutorial that it didn't mention, you can e-mail
me and I will help you with any of your questions.


2. Download(s)

~Alot of people off the internet have websites on "The Sims"
because this game is so popular, alot of people have put up
downloads. Some downloads are ok to have, but if you get
carried away, your game might crash at certain spots. I had this
problem every time I tried to create a new sim. Here is what to do
if this problem happends to you. Goto Program Files, Windows Explorer.
Then the Windows Explorer screen pops up. You can click on the folder
Program Files on the main screen or the side screen. After you click
Program Files, goto Maxis, The Sims, GameData. Voila! You are at
the objects, wallpapers, floors, sound, skins, userobjects and more
page! Click on the folder you know where the problem is. My
problem was certain skins, so I went to skins and got rid of the ones
that I got on the internet. You might not have to delete all the skins
on the internet, just the ones you go pass in create a sim when it
crasses, or just the skins you know are the problem. If you need more
help, you can e-mail me!


3. The Sims Livin' Large

~The Sims Livin' Large will be coming out in stores around Labor Day
weekend! You can also pre-order it at the EA store and also get a free
extreme characters pack CD with your purchase which includes even more
skins! Here is a little more information, but I won't give away to much!
The Sims Livin' Large includes more skins, wallpapers, floors, stairs,
windows, doors, and ALOT more! It is an expansion pack, and you will
need "The Sims" to play. You will also have five more jobs to choose
from! Musician, Reporter, Slacker, Paranormal, and a game designer!
You will also deal with more situations! Alien abductions(your sims can
look through the telescope and sometimes aliens will appear and will
abduct your sims! They will eventually bring your sims back, after
fooling around with them. They will mess around with their personality
traits. They could of once been a neat-freak, and then they turn into
a major slob.) Roach infestations(If you leave your house a pigstie,
roaches will take over your house!) Servo, the household appliance(
tired of cleaning your house, or hiring a maid, buy Servo and
he will clean up your house, he is a robot!) The tragic clown appears!
(You remember that tragic clown painting in "The Sims"? He can
actually come out of the painting and drive your sims nuts!) A genie
(Buy the magic genie lamp and wish for love or money! He can also
mess your wish up too!) A voodoo doll!(Poke away your troubles
and take your anger out on someone will this, OUCH!) The Grim
Reaper(If one of your sims die, he will come to collect the body,
although you can negotiate with the Grim Reaper, and play paper,
scissors, rock. If you win, the Grim Reaper will resurrect the body,
if you lose, the Grim Reaper will take the body!) And LOTS LOTS
more! Livin' Large also gives you the ability to control fifty
new neighborhoods, which is fourty more than the original! I think
I said to much, you can goto my sims website to look at some
screenshots for Livin' Large too! Scroll down to see the address to
my website!


4. Live Mode

~When your sims live and where you control! You can make a happy
sim life for your sims or mess it all up! Your choice. If you
are having any trouble with this mode you can e-mail me and I would
be glad to help!


5. Buy Mode

~Where you spend all your sims money! This is one of the fun parts!
To create your own objects(mainly change the colors and stuff)
Goto www.lushcreations.com and get the tool!


6. Build Mode

~This is the place where you make your sims home! It can also
be difficult for beginners on this game. The instruction manual
describes pretty well, but if you need any more help, you can
e-mail me.(How many times have I said that now hehe.)


7. Create a family album

~Awwww, look at the cute little button! Ooooook, at the
family photo album page you can take pictures and add text
under the pictures! You can also publish your families and albums
on the internet at www.thesims.com !


8. My website
