Lead Producer Introduces Island Paradise In New Blog Post

The lead producer for The Sims 3 introduces The Sims 3 Island Paradise in a new blog entry:

Resorts are another area of the game that we’re focusing on. Whether you’re looking to build a sprawling mega resort, have your Sims stay in a stilt foundation bungalow out over the ocean, or even directly manage an exclusive beachside retreat, resorts in The Sims 3 Island Paradise provide these experiences and much more. With advanced Build/Buy features such as the ability to build out over the ocean, create pools using the new resort-specific Blueprint Mode, and place dynamic new resort towers to attract potential guests.

Latest University Life Reviews

The Sims 3 University Life reviews are turning up pretty slowly -- there's just one this issue. Lazygamer rated it 7.5 out of 10:

If you are not a fan of leaving your Sims’ house and  going away on a mini-adventure, especially a time  consuming one such as this, you may not enjoy all that  University Life has to offer. However, there are real  benefits that Sims can gain from completing a degree (or  two!), including being wealthier and having more  ‘personality’.

There are now enough reviews for there to be a Metascore on Metacritic -- 67 ("Mixed or average reviews") based on four reviews.
