Absent-Minded (3/9)

  1. Just got Get Together as my first TS4 EP. Now my Sims have more ways to amuse themselves, which the base game was SEVERELY lacking.

      I actually REALLY like Get Together- lot more then I thought I would.

  2. Reason for my lengthy absence: My love of model building has been rekindled with a vengeance! Haven't touched Sims (or much gaming in general) in a couple months!

    1. Wolfenblu


      Oh I used to love building models, what kind?

    2. Kivak


      I used to do model cars.

    3. MadameButterfly


      Ooh! That sounds so cool!

  3. Bought a new shiny for my rig! Should be here Monday, woot!

  4. Playing Final Fantasy VIII - Raise your hand if you think Squall should have ended up with Zell, Irvine, or Seifer! :D

      I couldn't stand either of those choices, but then 8 was not my favorite and only played it to say I completed it.

  5. Upgrading my rig. Been literally obsessing over which GPU to get. That's why I haven't been here lately. :(

      must have more power arr arr arr *blinks innocently* LOL

      Dunno your price range, but nVidia's new 980 and 970 are getting good reviews. (http://www.hardocp.com/article/2014/09/29/msi_geforce_gtx_970_gaming_4g_video_card_review)

  6. *sigh* I just LOVE arguing with idiots at the Sims official forums.This person keeps insisting that AMD's Dual Graphics (an A10-7800K + R9 270X) is the way to go over a discrete card

  7. wtf? Installed TS2 UC last night and was horrified by how jaggedy and terrible the GFX look. Don't remember it looking this bad. Uninstalled it.

    1. Nellas


      We have a thread going on about that in the TS2 section. With newer graphics cards, some changes have had to be made.

  8. Graphics Card Shopping! Baby needs more POWER!

  9. 6.1 quake struck Napa, CA last night at 3:20. Live in San Jose, and felt a bit of rolling. Lived in the Bay Area all my life and still can't get used to those damn things. Needless to say I am very tired right now.

    1. Jenn


      I grew up in San Jose. I got to the point that I could sleep through anything under a 5.0.

    2. Great8Girl


      Lucky! I was just falling asleep when I felt it - dad said he did too, but my mom didn't. Now how can that be when we all live in the same house? LOL!

    3. Jenn


      LOL! I have no clue. We had one here in MO. Hubby was at work 20 miles away. I am used to them and I swear, it was probably less than a 3. I thought wind hit the house. Hubby texted "DID YOU FEEL THAT?!" I was like, "Feel what?" I guess it is huge to have earthquakes here.

  10. Officially on Lucky Simoleon Casino Watch

  11. Is Officially a Bonus Simpoints Addict

      Yay! It's an addiction that got me a lot of stuff.

    3. mamacat0076


      Don't forget the complete my set. I got the Cowplant for free using that.

    4. Great8Girl


      Hee hee, glad to know its an acceptable addiction *grins* In addition to all the male tops I got, I'm slowly buying every piece of the Futureshock Kitchen set - I'm saving buying the PC items when I buy one of those points cards.

  12. Just bought Not So Routine Machine on sale for 240 Simpoints = one less piece of arr'ed content, woot!

    1. nixicole


      Good for you! :) Slow and steady.

  13. Going to nuke my game pretty soon

      *hands a cookie*

  14. Just now spent 2 hours creating ahospital waiting room/exam room for a story, only to have the f'ing game get stuck. This is why I stick to drawing out scenes instead.

  15. Off I go to the Happiest Place on Earth again! Woot! Be back Thursday my peeps!
