I was late to join The Sims 3 bandwagon. I had played the first and second series but that was back in my college and school years and I was, somewhat, addicted to the games. Since then those games have been given to charity. However, last year (yes, I know the Sims 3 was released in 2009) Origin had a sale and I had watched some videos of Sims 3 and was enticed into getting it. Honestly, I mostly bought series 3 because the furniture can be rotated at 45 degree angles – it was that lack of a feature I was yearning for since playing The Sims 1. Sad but true.
Soon after creating my first character I realised how fun the game starts but soon get boring once you pretty much achieve the sim’s aspirations, and within a very short period of time for that matter. After not touching the game since about March I decided to start a new game but this time add more characters. Lo and behold, I have ‘The Bad Touch Trio’ household. Actually, it started off with just Gilbert Beilschmidt but it didn’t take long to reach his goal so my sister suggested adding France and Spain to the mix. Yep, that city is pretty much going to be Hetalia-esque. Needless to say the game has become more difficult and confusing at times. Mostly because I’m not all that familiar with Hetalia so I’m getting my sims mixed up, and with all three having jobs and always going out it’s hard to keep up with them all. It’s a lot more fun with more characters, needless to say.
From my sister’s reactions to my brief commentary on play the person who created the Hetalia sims has got Prussia, France and Spain pretty bang on – in the way they act and what they do.
The house I built (originally just for Prussia) was a reward for Gilbert when he reached superstar sportsman status and earned enough money. I based the house – bungalow? – off a blueprint I found online and luckily it included two addition guest rooms, so it was as easy as just adding two new characters.
Now I really want to add a pet to the household but I’ll have to wait until another sale before I buy The Sims 3 Pets. Please have a sale on soon Origin.
Apart from Sims I have been keeping up with my bakery, boutique and restaurant (free games on the Play Store and App Store). To be honest, those games are repetitive and I said that once I reached level 99 and “completed” the games I’d stop but little did I realise that completing level 99 was going to take a long time – in Fashion Story I’m pretty much stuck on level 96. == There will come a day when I don’t have to worry about my food going off, or my clothes and accessories expiring (…?). When that day will be I have no idea but one day. One day.
