IGN Brings Us First Late Night Preview From Gamescom

IGN has posted the first proper preview (as far as I’m aware) of The Sims 3 Late Night, as part of their Gamescom coverage:

Heading into the downtown areas of the city will let you explore a section of town filled with skyscrapers and loft apartments. Accessing these swanky living spaces can be done via elevators, and once you’re up to the right floor you can poke around the pad and maybe walk out onto the balcony where a hot tub is installed, complete with color-changing lights.

EA Gives Us A “Sneak Peek” At Late Night

EA has posted a news article on TheSims3.com giving us a “sneak peek” at The Sims 3 Late Night:

The Sims 3 Late Night is set to be a more mature and realistic look at the night scene in a more urban environment. Instead of experiencing pre-determined set pieces that players would inevitably see over and over, it’s more of a playground of possibility and intrigue.

Poll Results: Which is your favourite profession in The Sims 3 Ambitions?

Yes, it’s true – your eyes are not deceiving you. I really am closing a poll without extending it once. And it’s thanks to you lot for actually bothering to vote in good time. So thank you.

Right, yes – results. I asked you this: Which is your favourite profession in The Sims 3 Ambitions? There was a tie – both Stylist and Investigator got about 17%. Meanwhile 26% are still unsure whether to actually get Ambitions or not. Click below to see the results in full and comment on them:

If a poll has ended, another must have begun, and so it has. What I want to know this time is whether anyone else thinks that the name of the newest expansion pack, The Sims 3 Late Night, sounds like it should have “Stuff” at the end. I’ve nearly called it The Sims 3 Late Night Stuff in the past, and have seen another website go further and actually publish a news article calling it that. So, vote to the right of any page – it’s a simple yes or no with this one.
