Gotta go, hope you liked it! [^.^]

Sachi-chan’s Favorite Video Game~ The Sims!

Ohayou minna-san~♥! Sachi-chan desu! How are you all doing? I really want to say a quick ” Thank You” to all of you who were so nice about my who “false anticipation” problem. It really helped to have such support! ^_^

Alright, now …what shall I blog about today? *thinks* I know! I’ll blog about my absolute favorite game of all time: The Sims!

Note: This post is packed with my opinions. If anyone disagrees with them, I have no problem whatsoever, but I hope no one will take any of this personally. Thank you!

Anyway, so, I’ve been a big fan of The Sims for about as long as I can remember. My love of this awesome game was passed down to me by my older sister. She was always a Sims fan and when I became old enough to understand the game I fell in love with it too! I really don’t know any other game that comes close. I know different games suite different people, so I understand that some would prefer maybe a faster more action game, for example. But I’ve always loved simulation games, and especially “life” simulation games. So The Sims (“Sims” is short for simulation) is basically the perfect game for me!

OK, some of you may be reading this and thinking, What is high heaven is this girl talking about? If so, I’ll explain a little about The Sims games now.

First off, I’ll start by saying a little about the general plot of all of the Sims games:

Basically, the objective of all Sims games is just to… live. In the Sims games (at least the ones for PC), there’re hardly ever any real obligations or things you have to do to “win”. You choose just about everything about the kind of lives you want your sims to live. You choose whether you want them to live happily ever after, or a life of drama and issues. It’s really the ultimate simulation game.

One of the main things that I love so much about The Sims games are the many possibilities to expand the game. At first when you just install, for example, The Sims 2 base game, life is just simple, you just live, work, eat, sleep socialize etc. That can be fun, but after a certain amount of time, that gets kinda boring, doesn’t it? That’s where expansion packs come in. The makers of The Sims games are always busy working on their latest expansion pack (unless of course a totally new base game is coming out soon – such as The Sims 3!!!). Expansion packs do exactly what they imply. They expand the game.

The Sims 2 Expansion Packs

The Sims 2 Expansion Packs

Lemme give a quick example:

When I buy The Sims 2 (base game), I can just live (not too many special things to do). But if I buy “The Sims 2 University Expansion Pack*”, I can send my teenage kids to college so they can get good jobs. And then if I buy “The Sims 2 Bon Voyage Expansion Pack*”, I can do that (send my kids to college) and go on awesome vacations. Then if I buy “The Sims 2 Pets Expansion pack*”, I can have pets as part of the family. And so on.

So each time you install an expansion pack, you expand the game more and more. And it’s that ever-growing-ness that keeps The Sims games interesting. You’re still playing the same game with your same families, but the game itself is always growing, getting more and more possibilities. Pretty cool, ne? n.n

Ok, I think that’s enough of my babbling on about this game now… I just can’t wait until the newest Sims game, The Sims 3 comes out next year!!! *v*/!!!

So, I’d love to know, What are your favorite games? Why do you like them so much?

Right! Sachi-chan must leave now…

Ja-ne~♫♪☼!

Is WiiMusic as good as MK thinks it is?

Ohaiyou everyone! MK here. T_T I had a really bad day today… So I’m not exactly in my best mood, but hopefully I’ll be able to write myself out of my bad mood; I apologize in advance for any moodiness that might be noticed in my post. Thank you.

Oh, also I know you guys are probably wondering where Namine and Yoshi are (they haven’t posted anything yet ;_;)… I guess they’re pretty busy lately… I apologize on their behalf *bows* and hope that they’ll post their first posts very soon (I’m getting very lonely…-_-).

Ok, back to the point:

WiiMusic

—> [Please excuse me if I say anything that might not be fully accurate, I’m not an expert on this game, I don’t even have it… yet ^_-.]

I don’t know if you’ve all heard of one of Nintendo’s newest games called WiiMusic. It’s a game where you make music with the wii remote, numchuck and sometimes even the wii balance board (wii fit). When I saw the ad on tv for the first time, I was super excited about it! It’s just seems super cool and cute!

Here’s a cute video of WiiMusic! (Yes, I know the writing’s in Japanese, but that part isn’t really important)

But lately I’ve been having doubts about whether this game is worth the price. It seems like a fun, social game initially, but what if it’s just that – only fun in the beginning. I’m not super fond of games that are only fun for a short period of time, I like games that never get boring or at least take a very long time to do so.

So, for this reason (having doubts) I’ve been looking all over the net for as much info about it as possible (ok, well not all over the net – *is lazy*), but I still have many questions about it. Like, for example I’m not sure whether it’s possible to make your own music on it of if you can only play songs that are already there. And if you that’s the case, then how many songs are there and are they lame or boring? ^The one in the video seems super cool, though!^

What I know about WiiMusic is that… hmmm what do I know about WiiMusic? Oh! I know there are over 60 different instruments to play and you can play with up to four people at once… and you can have back-up players… and you can conduct an orchestration… yea, that’s it. In general it seems to me that there are more people who like it than that don’t, but it’s almost split down the middle, it seems.

Right now, I’m just wondering whether I should ask my parents to buy it or not… and I really don’t know. (-_-) What do you guys think of WiiMusic, if you know anything about it. Do you like it or think it’s lame. What cool features are there? If you don’t know anything about it, do you think it seems cool (judging by the video)? And those of you who don’t have wii consoles, or any kind of video game consoles (0.0) do you like video games (or the wii in particular) and what kinds of games do you like, etc.

I’ll be going now. (!) I’m not in such a bad mood anymore. Yay! Lesson in life: When you’re down and low, try blogging! It helps! *LOL*

Sayonara!
