THANKS THIS IS GREAT

Like I said before...Hypocrisy Hell.  EA wants to just keep milking The Sims like a bloated everlasting cash cow, and they're going to do and promote anything they can to make that happen.

T$R is a huge pay site. They have a crapload of people who pay to go there. It promotes The Sims. It promotes EA's moneywhoring. So EA is going to promote, support (in a sleazy, urinesoaked backroom sorta way) and drag them along for the ride. 

They're disgusting pigs.  Both of them; EA and T$R deserve to wallow in the dung filled trough they've filled together.

I mean,...come on. EA has been raping The Sims franchise for years. If anyone didn't think they
were money grubbers by now, they had some platinum plated coins latched onto their eyelids.  Inviting so many from T$R just highlights even more how they want to do anything they can to make more money.

Even if it means ignoring those that break their rules, so long as it benefits them.

Ah, okay - like I said, not really familiar with most of those names - and I missed Josh *murderous look* who should fit in with the TSr folks just fine.

And that's precisely it - its not any of the TSR 'big talents' they picked [as I understand it, TSR got invites and picked who got to go, not EA.].  I don't get it.  There are some talented FAs still, if a lot of them have left.  Why didn't they take along any of them?  I can't believe that -all- of them had to work.

What I can't figure out is Manager Josh. Huh
Oh, I can. He's been a EA fangirl for a long while. No big shocker to me.

My mouth is gaping open that Brynne (she is listed under her alt name "VRevis") of all people got invited to the event.  Why--just, why???
Several reasons: First, all the blather about their latest and greatest "movie-making tools" has clearly caused EA to somehow see Sims-made movies as actual custom CONTENT. This is, of course, silly, as such movies are not actually CONTENT at all. Second, mostly because I allowed it to proceed.

And how do you come by this kind of influence, oh Cranky Curmudgeon?

When you put it like that, I have this image in my head of you blowing a tranq dart at Brynne's neck as she is walking up the steps of EA headquarters, catching her as she falls, and dragging her away with no one being the wiser.

I suspect that EA chose creators for two reasons:  1.  They make the Maxis stuff actually look good and 2.  Didn't want any that they know where affiliated with PMBD.  Since we apparently have Sims 2 Store here.  That and things might get a little political.  (Like it won't do, anyway.)

Looking at the list of people at creator camp it's pretty clear they were invited for their specialties, mainly.  What are there -- three object makers?  And the rest are mostly people who do lots and machinima.

I don't say machinima isn't content: it's an art, too.  But it's one that can be done without having a way to edit game files in any way.

It's been pretty clear from the beginning of the hype for Sims 3 that they're really trying to get people focused on a certain range of activities and to talk them out of wanting to do other ones.  So I think they've brought in a bunch of people who they think might be convinceable that the range of activities they're making available are sufficiently awesome that they won't miss the others.

Though it's hard for me to believe that the best machinima makers are going to be satisfied with getting all their clips by following their Sims around the sidewalks of the town and hoping for the best.  Especially as it has been revealed that you won't be able to follow your sims into community buildings.  Just puzzling.

*hits you over the head with a newspaper*  We don't have any Sims 2 Store items in the booty.  We never have.  Get it right.

Meanie said "Since we apparently have Sims 2 Store here." ~ eg. referring to the fact that maxis were misinformed that pes host the files, which isn't true.

Tis you who needs to 'get it right' before newspaper hitting commences.

She has a lovely site, like someone said above the clothes are really nice.
She also created a pose hack on MTS2 that I use quite often, the only one I have in fact.
There's more people I would of liked to see on there, but I guess RL comes first.

I think you're right - and I think they are advertising more towards activities. The object/clothing side has been ignored for more of the type of play that they are intending - all the videos show the sort of town type thing, that doesn't really appeal to a lot of us.  So they're going to shape things to make it look like lots of fun.

EA might have found that the machinima folks are more likely to buy and buy, and that they pimp it to other machinima folks who maybe don't play sims, but are interested in making videos - very effective free advertising.  I mean, they obviously don't care about company loyalty or cuddliness anymore, or they wouldn't have gone in the direction they have. So it's just enough for them to get them to buy. And they can rely on hardcore Simmers buying it anyway.

OH, I've used that posing thing.  and she does have some pretty things. I think alot of people are wondering why MTS2 wasn't invited at all, and only one person out of all the creators there was invited, but has her own site [ Decorgal ].  Its stupidly hypocritical of EA.  I doubt seriously that everyone who should have gotten invited -couldn't- go.

Better question: why NOT??

For simplicity's sake, it boils down to that she's an attention whore and that her Sims 2 music videos suck monkey balls.

You're perfectly entitled to your opinion about her videos, but you're talking out your ass about the "attention whore" insult. That's pure unadulterated bullshit.

Pescado doesn't like her because he pushed her too far and she took her toys and went home. Considering how many people he's done that to, I don't think it says anything much about her. Of course he likes to claim he has some kind of control regarding her, he does that. Often.

Because I possess extremely damaging information that, if known, would make her politically unacceptable?
