Rflong7/13 was on hand to congratulate her for the spectacular longevity of her Simmie:
Simasaurus09 puts it down to a good exercise regime.
Anyone else notice there’s been a fair old bit of conjecture about this doing the rounds this week?
Either someone knows something the rest of us don’t, or you lot really are bored!
Christian Today reporting on the Sims series without mentioning blasphemy, gay sex or the occult? Shirley shome mistake! Unless they’ve decided to adopt the Father Jack line in future. If so, they’d be in good company…
The story appears to be that because EA have made a complete and utter arse (as per usual) of porting it to other platforms – in this case consoles – they’re looking to go straight to Sims 5 and we’ll be the poor saps next time around who will have to wait for it to be ported from console to PC/Mac as they make the drive to have a new game ready for the next generation of consoles due out.
We have to confess to being a touch cynical. For starters, this supposes that EA are remotely reactive, let alone pro-active – and history has shown they’ve not been that for decades. Whilst Bethesda and Nintendo are busily tarting up old classics for the next gens and not being remotely coy about it, EA as per usual simply has nothing to say, except rehashing old crap about ‘amusing’ meeting room names.
But anyway, it’s at least given those on the EA forum something new to pontificate over, such as James64468:
Here’s an idea, have it completely play tested and bug free… okay, we’ll be serious now!
Anyway, it’s hard to be non-frivilous in a thread where the first reply came from FriendlySimmers…
… less than twenty four hours after their latest ‘I’m never posting here again, none of you deserve me!’ moment…
How many dramatic exits is that now? We’ve lost count!
Brilliant news over at the Minecraft community at Kreatious, where AceFlamingo23 tried yet again to be allowed back in so he could make its players miserable after the routine behaving for a few weeks before kicking off his usual bumnuggetry again.
Yeah, sure. The fact he’s already planning to use his sockpuppet Justron over there again says it all as to his intentions, a story you will all remember had some cross over with our own community.
Back in January this year, his shitty behaviour across many gaming communities we’ve been documenting here for many years finally came to the notice of those at Kreatious, and at long last he came unstuck with those Minecraft players whose lager he’s been pissing in and calling it tops for far too long. He was of course permabanned from the current EA forum once again this year, and (so far…) has not returned.
Whilst TimmyTopHat appeared willing to hear him out…
… thankfully Icefang113 knew from past experience AceFlamingo23 is a waste of time and a waste of space any gaming community can well do without, let alone theirs, linking for the benefit of his fellow Minecrafters to an article in a certain blog you may be familiar with…
‘You’ve been a nuisance to the Kreatious community (along with other game communities) for several years now… you’ve been continuously trolling gaming communities for over three years. I do believe that second chances can be a good thing; but third, forth, fifth, or sixth chances? … So my say on this matter is: DENIED.’
Oh our aching sides. You guys are so wacky. How do you come up with this stuff, no really.
By the way, anyone that starts a sentence with ‘Fun fact’ is a brain-dead arsebucket unable to string a coherent sentence together without including at least one trending pop-culture meme within. On the plus side, civilisation needs some people to grow up stupid, flip burgers for the rest of us, keep all those shitty Stepford High Street stores open buying ‘designer’ merchandise and Sims 4 add on packs.
Just a pity you’d already posted this ‘hilarious’ factoid three years earlier…
Yes, nothing original here – bit like that recycled Sims Olympus code you’re marketing as Sims 4...
‘It pays to keep a keen eye out to the literal halls of EA for gaming nuggets like these, and as one of our conference rooms says on its door: “That’s a wrap.” ‘
More like the literal halls of EA for flaming bumnuggets like these. As for ‘that’s a wrap’ – we take it the wrap in question is turkey ?
What is the difference between asking a tech question on Nraas Industries and the EA forum? Bugger all – it’s still going to be Igazor that answers it first!
And lo! by way of confirmation comes the following little lamb’s tale when Littlelamsy was feeling sheepish after some wooly thinking caused her to switch off her computer when trying to do an update, having an adverse effect on her Simming.
‘What’s this, young lamb?’ Igazor the Policeman said. ‘Shutting down in the middle of an system update is computing without due care and attention. If you do that again, I’ll be taking your names and addresses!’
LittleLambsy did her little best, but to no avail in finding the mint sauce of her problems.
Luckily before she got into any more trouble on the NRaas Industries forum after confessing to her baaa-d behaviour, Sarah_Sims was able to save the day:
So it was Littlelambsy’s game was back up and running. Now all was well, later on that day she was the special guest of honour at Igazor and Sarah_Sims Sunday lunch:
For those of you not getting some of the obscure gags in the above, there used to be a famous (and much lampooned) children’s storybook and television character called Larry the Lamb.
Larry was a lickspittle class traitor who lived in Toytown where all the other characters were caricatures of their professions: the egocentric fat bumbling Mayor, the avaricious curmudgeonly penny pinching Grocer, and the officious policeman Ernest whose most dreaded sanction against wrong doers (usually Larry) was to take their names and addresses for his notebook. Quite why Larry shat his wool so much at the merest threat of this is anyone’s guess, unless it meant that Ernest and the Mayor would be around at Larry’s later for a different sort of spit-roast to the sort normally done with lamb.
Despite being on the go since the 1920s, the series continued with all it’s subtle innuendos lost to most of the public, until Larry was caught out by the tabloid press in a sleezy hotel room indulging in auto-erotic asphyxia.
His light entertainment career in tatters, subsequently he became a Conservative MP on the Eurosceptic pro-capital punishment wing of the party. Well, it goes with the territory…
You can still get old Larry The Lamb mechandise as highly prized collectibles, such as toys…
Even board games:
Race game? And he’s doing the Hitler salute! DELETE KEY, HIT THE BLOODY DELETE KEY!
Erm, moving swiftly on, perhaps we ought to also explain who this very helpful Sarah_Sims is.
Many may remember her by her old Simming world name of RoseDawson5555, which she changed in memorable fashion over at Mod The Sims after appealing to Leefish in prose:
Despite her success, we suspect both she would rather have not read about it oozing all over Smop95, thank you very much and goodnight!
She’s also to be found over on Dumblr where she had space dedicated to her Simming activities, which appear somewhat confused right now:
You’re having Christmas on 18th July?!
Mind you, at least part of it is true to the Christmas spirit…
Random family member lying pissed on the floor on Christmas Day – yep, that’s just about the sum total of it!
Although we really shudder to think what mods she’s got in her game to account for this…
Kick a duck and throw acorns at squirrels to gain the Workaholic trait? Unless this is another EA patch that’s gone haywire!
