"Yank and Shank" is strangely more satisfying than a chainsaw bayonet to the face.

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

The Sims 3 Getting University Life, Island Paradise, And An Unannounced Expansion In 2013

Posted on Tuesday, January 8 @ 11:56:13 PST by


Just because EA Maxis is knee-deep in the development of the much anticipated SimCity reboot, it doesn't mean they're leaving The Sims 3 out to dry. Quite the contrary. Along with the The Sims 3 70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff pack releasing January 22 and a movie-themed stuff pack releasing this Fall, the studio has announced three full expansions: University Life, Island Paradise, and one yet to be revealed.

Arriving March 5, The Sims 3 University Life will allow Sims from young adult to elder to leave their home for a college town full of "juice-keggers", protests, a SimBurger, and silent study groups. Sims can choose from one of six majors at the university which upon completion will grant better promotions and starting positions in their respective fields. The Limited Edition version also comes with a masquerade mask, toga outfit, and Partaeus Maximum statue, ready for all your Animal House needs.

Releasing three months later is The Sims 3 Island Paradise, where Sims can customize houseboats, discover new islands, and build bungalows or five-star resorts. Sims can also learn scuba diving and snorkeling, which I suspect will aid in collecting rare treasures embedded on the ocean floor.

Last but not least, the yet unnamed expansion coming in the Fall will allow Sims to transport to the future, perhaps with the aid of a time machine. Ah, if there only was a "The Sims 3: Mass Effect"... oh, I've said too much.
