No Honour Amongst Thieves

Posted in Uncategorized on September 21, 2016 by themaresnest

Oh, you’d have to possess a heart of stone not to laugh.

no-honour-amongst-thieves

Six years? Erm, you started your ‘All the friends that money can buy’ webshyte in 2011, which makes it FIVE years, you cretin!

Alexurt – who was forgiven (sort of) by the Simgurus for being a lying thieving fantasist in return for being their chief toady and saying how wonderful every crock of shit that came out thereafter was, has now joined Phreakindee (aka Lazy Game Reviewer) now that he’s decided you can only stay bought for so long, and is now getting all bolshie with Simguru Quack Quack over the sort of routine communications that have been passing back and forth from the Simgurus to their pet toadie these last five years.

The trigger was Simguru Drake finding her inner bitch to throw her rattle out the pram in the direction of those Simmers still left that care anymore about the Glitterturd daring to discuss the sort of leaks over forthcoming content which have been routine within the Simming community since the start.

But ‘widely reported by a multitude of fansites’? Dream on! With interest in Sims 4 in terminal decline, so is interest in the Simgurus’ Comical Ali routines – unless of course it’s to hear about them being fired or jumping ship.

What came up next was a spectacular piece of bullshit even by Alexurt’s standards:

no-honour-amongst-thieves-2

‘Focus on only the message they wanted, not the truth’?

Certainly Simguru Drake is guilty of asking Alexurt to change a Sims VIP post to make EA look better – to quote: ‘I’d like to ask if you could adjust the article to focus on my forum wide announcement rather than an almost week old conversation… I hope you understand my position and we can work together to focus on the positive rather than the negative.’

Cue full blown holier than thou refusal to budge citing freedom of speech… the same person that threatened legal action against us (and was told roundly ‘bring it on!’, legal action against EA (which also proved to be a load of hot air) and tried to silence Honeywell at every turn in the lead up to the Glitterturd.

But we digress.

Let’s have Simguru Quack Quack’s request on the behalf of an EA forum member straight from the horse’s mouth, NZSimm3r:

no-honour-amongst-thieves-4

Oh dear. Not very edifying, is it?

‘Taken out of context’… well par for the course there!

Never mind, NZSimm3r, treat it as mind over matter – you shouldn’t mind, she doesn’t matter.

Do we want to connect to the internet to ‘enrich’ our game online?

Little Sims Shack’s SimGuru Dartboard: Hitting The Bullseye, Or Over-The-Double-Top?

Posted in Uncategorized on September 19, 2016 by themaresnest

All the way from Dumblrland, kiddies:

Now come on, there’s probably more than a few that have been tempted to meddle with the Late Night expansion pack dartboard to stick a picture on of someone they don’t like (come October it will be a miracle if there’s not at least one Trump The Chump and Hildog dartboard apiece the way the American presidential race is going…)

We can see why Little Sims Shack thought twice about this one, but the notion of Sims 3 Simmies chucking darts at Sims 4 pics of the Simgurus that sold them down the river for Sims 4… well there is a certain bad taste yet appropriate humour to that one, same as if there had been one of the Simgurus in their Sims 3 guise made by Sims 2 players.

Incidentally, there were such meddled for malice dartboards back in the Sims 2 days, as the below illustrates from Fooodfan31 four years ago…

‘The more things change, the more they stay the same.’

Lampooning within video games is as old as the very first home systems – think back to Manic Miner (the first computer game with in game music… nowadays the likes of Skyrim had bloody symphonies written for them – how far we’ve come indeed!) waaaaaay back in 1983 when Bug Byte Software got their own back on those programmers that jumped ship to form Imagine Software – in particular the bespectacled Eugene Evans who was less than flattering towards those that broke him into the gaming big time.

(Ironically, Manic Miner‘s creator Matthew Smith stitched up Bug Byte in turn when due to a contractual glitch he was able to release the program via his own software company instead!)

Probably the only really controversial part is that this download is being hosted by Delphy of Mod The Sims‘ SimFileShare site – considering all the brown nosing he’s done with Graham Nardone over the years, this one’s going to be a bit awkward for him!

Lisamtown Would Like Her Money Back For Sims 4… After Having It For Two Years!

You’re joking, right?

Simasaurus09 tried to point out the blinding obvious, but with Movotti in full agreement we think it’s going to be a cold day in Hell before Lisamtown accepts that fools and their money are soon parted…

… especially ones that only two months ago were still so keen to keep on parting from it for the latest additions to the Glitterturd.

We weren’t happy to see this bumnugget reappear last April and are not in the least surprised that he proved to be the same old trolling drama queen from last time around.
