EL33TONLINE Reviews Fast Lane Stuff

Thursday 18th November 2010 | 10:25 pm UK time | Categories

EL33TONLINE has posted a review of The Sims 3 Fast Lane Stuff – they gave it an “OK!” two stars out of a possible five:

“Stuff” packs are bloated by distribution costs, cover-art design and attempts to add some sort of theme. Adding these packs as downloads rather than disc based packs will save everyone money.

Game Blend has posted their review of The Sims 3 Fast Lane Stuff. If you’re hoping to just glance at a rating, they don’t give one, but if you actually want to read about it and view some screenshots, you may want to check it out:

Over all, I’ll be honest and say that not being a huge car fan, I could live without this Stuff Pack. But if you love cars and have been waiting for your Sims to have more options on what they can drive, the Pack delivers.

Thursday 16th September 2010 | 2:47 pm UK time | Categories

As has become standard for new expansion or stuff packs, Apple has now posted their article about The Sims 3 Fast Lane Stuff:

What’s your Sims’ style? Racing? Intrigue? Rockabilly? Classic Luxury? Maybe Mom goes for Racing, complete with a living room wall display of custom rims, a set of Tuff Gruff Tools in the garage, and a Velocity racer from Simota Motor Sports in the garage. When she isn’t working on her car, a sporty blazer and a nice pair of slacks are perfect for taking a stroll through downtown Sunset Valley with her family.

Grant Rodiek Reveals New Late Night Details On Twitter

Tuesday 3rd August 2010 | 11:35 pm UK time | Categories

Grant Rodiek revealed some new details about The Sims 3 Late Night when he took over the official Twitter account for The Sims 3 last week. Let’s go through the replies I thought revealed new information (there’s also a bit of Fast Lane Stuff information at the end of this post):

  • There’s a new fountain tool (response only – question has been removed): “@Doodlesam54321 Hard to explain the fountain tool via twitter. It’s a flexible way to make really cool fountains. It’s pretty amazing.” (Source)
  • Disappointing for me at least is confirmation that the subway is a rabbit hole – still, at least it’s more than just decorative: “@TheSims3 Are there any new rabbit holes coming in Late Night? Which??” “@Gurra09 Film Studio. Subway.” (Sources: Question, Response)
  • Talking of the subway, be weary when using it – you could get mugged!: “@TheSims3 How fast is the subway as a transportation system? Does it cost money, or is it free?” “@Gurra09 The subway is free UNLESS you get mugged. But…that doesn’t happen THAT often. It’s faster than driving.” (Sources: Question, Response)
