MK’s Quest for The SIMS 3!

*trying to relax*

Ohayou to minna-san on this Sunday morningText emote 1!

At the moment, MK is trying to enjoy some of her morning because she has a busy day ahead of her. This upcoming week is going to be filled with tests that are all going to count very heavily for our grades for each subject. MK’s quite smart and can sustain wonderful grades with little effort. That’s why she usually looks forward to this week of tests. But last semester, MK discovered (to her great dismay) that her grades for that semester were slightly lower that they usually areText emote 7. So this semester, MK has been putting extra effort into her schoolwork to make sure that her grades get back to where they always are.

Anyway, enough about tests. MK feels like she should apologize [once again] for her long absence here [-__-]. I really wish I could be one of those great bloggers who always has time to blog and can always find something cool to blog about. But at the moment, I’m not *gomen*. That’s why I want to work towards blogging more and blogging about things minna-san wants to hear about. Starting… NOW!

*thinks-thinks-thinks*

OK! One thing MK is DYING to blog about is… THE SIMS 3! As a couple of you might know, I’m a HUGE Sims fan! The Sims games have been my favorite video games for as long as I can remember. I’ve always loved being able to have as much freedom as possible in a game. That’s why I also like games like Grand Theft Auto, Toontown and Runescape. But of course the Sims tops all of them because it has the perfect focus: Life. I love catering to my sims’ needs and having them work their ways up the corporate ladder and fulfill their wants and aspirations.

At the moment, I don’t have my own copy of The Sims 3 yetText emote 2. But I do have a collection of The Sims and The Sims 2 base game and expansion packs!

I bought all of the Sims 2 games over time, slowly buying whichever one I still didn’t have. So now I have all of the expansion packs but only one stuff pack. The Sims 1 expansion packs were all given to me by Yoshi, one of my best friends, he bought them for me when he went overseas (Thanks Yoshi-kunText emote 9!). Unfortunately, I can’t play them because I don’t have The Sims base game. But I’m definitely glad to have them to add to my collection. Each of the Sims 1 boxes has two expansion packs in them, so in total I’ve got 6 The Sims expansion packs and 8 The Sims 2 expansion packs.

Anyway, so MK is planning to buy The Sims 3 on her next trip to the US in a few weeks. But what concerns me right now is the system requirements. The system requirements for The Sims 3 are quite high, and I don’t think MK’s weak little laptop will be able to meet all of the requirements! DoushiyouText emote 12?! (What shall I do!?)

My mom is often complaining about how she really needs a computer of her own. So I was thinking that maybe, I could convice her, while we’re in the US, to get a desktop computer. One that will be able to play The Sims 3 easily, of course. Then we’ll both be happy. But I’m not sure whether that’ll happen. *sigh* We’ll see…

OK, It’s now about 12pm here, so I plan to get started on schoolwork soon. That means it’s time to go.

Ja~ne!

PS. I’ll try my best to get another post in as soon as possible.

OH! I almost forgot!

Unfortunately… MK’s awesome shoes still haven’t arrived here *cries*. I’ve been tracking them through the United States Postal Service website, and it seems as though they’ve been stuck in one area for several days already21! I’m really praying they’ll get moving again this week…

*sigh*

Bye bye now Text emote 8

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!

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…
