Generations: Digital Spy Interviews Graham Nardone

Digital Spy has posted an interview with The Sims 3 Generations producer Graham Nardone, who discusses events, skills, the video cameras and more:

Will the events be available from existing Sims 3 save states?
“So if you’ve been playing The Sims 3, whether it’s the base game or some of the expansions, when you purchase Generations all this will automatically integrate into whatever you’ve been doing. It’s not like you’ll need to start a new game – you can play with the Sims that you’ve already created. A lot of our players get really passionate and involved in their save games, and they’ve built these big families that already have generations of Sims, and now they’ll be able to explore that even further.”

Girl Gamers UK And PC Gamer Post Their Own Generations Previews

Girl Gamers UK has posted their first impressions of The Sims 3 Generations, which has some new information:

Being a baby-sitter is not the easiest of jobs, because while you’re trying to juggle day to day life and your own needs, you’ll have babies crawling all over the floor, having screaming matches at each other and having tantrums when they aren’t given a toy. No wonder I stayed in the shower for so long. At the end of the day, the parents come and collect their children, you’ll get paid and everybody’s happy.

PC Gamer has posted a preview too:

For aged Sims, you can now create the stereotypical cranky old person with the introduction of the cane. Yes, now your Sim can shake their cane at younger generations and nobody can stop you. Be old, hate the youth, and become a Scooby-Doo villain (EA, can you add that as DLC? I think Hanna-Barbera would be up for it.)

IGN Goes Crazy In Generations Preview

IGN has posted two new articles about The Sims 3 Generations. The first covers the basics:

Time for a little weird science
The new chemistry skill allows you to make stink bombs for practical jokes, execute the ninja vanish trick, and even bring an imaginary friend to life.

The second is a hands-on preview which goes into a bit more detail about the pranks and the imaginary friend, among other things:

Adults can have more lavish weddings, complete with the bachelor and bachelorette parties. If that party goes extremely well, it could conceivably end with a woo-hoo in the shower, another new and apparently much-requested addition.
