It’s more than a month since Showtime’s release, so probably a fair few of you have bought it now, and have had one of your Sims take up one of the new professions — but which one? That’s what I want to know this time. Even if you’ve forgotten which one you took up first, or haven’t even got Showtime, you can still vote, so do it now on the right of any page.

GamesRadar Lists Their 19 Favourite Woohoo Spots In The Sims 3

Tuesday 17th April 2012 | 8:39 pm UK time | Categories

As part of their week of love, GamesRadar has listed their top 19 favourite places to woohoo in The Sims 3:

The Sims series has come a long way since the tame days of the first game in the series. Those no-fun prudes would barely go near each other unless it involved making a baby. Things loosened up when the concept of WooHooing was introduced in The Sims 2, and with The Sims 3 and its six expansions, Sims are presented with over a dozen zany places to get it on.

As mentioned in the introduction to that article, The Sims 3 also featured in their top 7 “game characters we (seriously) fell in love with” with “Your neighbor in The Sims” at number 4:

It started off plainly enough: our neighbor came over for a housewarming party once we moved in, and we told them a few jokes. But then they came over again and the jokes became flirts. And then the flirts became more flirts. And then they slapped us, but then the jokes became more flirts. Cut to a few months later and we were married, pumping out kids like no one’s business.

Want To “Murder” Your Sims In The Sims 3? IGN Tells You How

Thursday 5th May 2011 | 12:38 pm UK time | Categories

IGN has (somewhat randomly) posted a new feature covering the ways you can “murder” Sims in The Sims 3:

This one has been a staple since the first game, but it’s a little more difficult to pull off in The Sims 3 because your Sims can actually crawl out of the pool without a ladder. How do you fix this? Simple – just build a wall around the pool.
