There are a lot of upcoming games I’m looking forward to. From Watchdogs to more details on the forthcoming Far Cry 4 to the next Mass Effect title, I’ve got my eye on a few titles, as well as upgrading to a gaming laptop and finally getting either a PS4 or Xbox One.
But one of my #nerdlife obsessions is without a question of doubt, The Sims. I’ve been simming it up since the first base game, as well as the expansion packs. With every generation of Sims, I’ve found myself loving the endless possibilities to create a variety of sims, but one thing that has always seemed as though it hadn’t reach full potential was the CAS (Create-A-Sim.)
Even with mods and skins I was able to tweak my sims, but they never felt totally adjustable. When it came to even creating my own sim, it was difficult because I wanted my sim to look like me: medium waist, big butt, thick legs, and 6feet of coolness. :) But, it seems very soon I might be able to finally create a sim that looks like me.
Say hello to The Sims 4 and the brand new Create-A-Sim.
The new Sims game is supposed to hopefully come out this Summer/Fall, and the new CAS is way more powerful than it’s predecessors.
Unlike the few sliders in Sims 3, now you can select on any region you want and just push/pull to shape it the way you want. This allows for ultimate customization, resulting in sims that look more realistic in terms of body shapes, faces, and diversity.
When it comes to creating my Sims, I easily spent an hour last night creating my boyfriend, me, and the dog we hope to have one day. But now with the Sims 4, I could totally see us taking like 3 hours to create our family!
And if the CAS allows for this high-level of customization, I’m sure the Live Mode is going to have some great new features as well. One thing we keep hearing about it having to “control your sims emotions” and not just their well-being (bathroom, hunger, sleep, etc.) So hopefully( very soon) we can get some more insights on what to expect!
