Nah, I'm just making a statement that we all know is true. I have a thing for stating the obvious. x]
But seriously, I'm disappointed in EA for trying to keep the community so ignorant. (You see, there I go again! XD) What happened to freedom of speech? I'm debating on whether or not I should buy their new EP and support them. Don't get me wrong, the game is fun; it's just that their creators aren't.

I think that is EA's way of thinking.

Alinda - Get the EP used, that way you don't support EA.

Or she could ARRRR it? That's what I have been doing since Teen Style Stuff came out for The Sims 2. My copy of Freetime was a gift from EA though. I had won a competition on the UK forum.

Alinda- it is not the creators fault that the SimGuruAxoids choose to support non PG-13 paysites when there are plenty of PG-13 freesites (nonsensica, clutter a holic, Maxis Dreams- actually out of the 127 free sites I have on my links list- more than 3/4's of them could be considered PG-13 by EA standards) that they could post links for other than Parsims (not that I have a problem with this, love Kates work).

The creators are the programmers and graphic artists are usually  hired by EA on a short term bases (usually less then a year for most video game franchises) to create their games. They are paid little and don't have any power whatsoever when it comes to running how the Sims franchise is promoted, or how the Official Sites are run.

The executive in charge - I believe Ben Bell is the one with the power to make these decisions, and he is either very ignorant, or supports paysites like TSR himself therefore violating the EULA he came up with, or just doesn't give a shit what SimGuruHydra and the rest of them are promoting as PG-13 on the website that he is supposed to oversee.

No matter how you buy the game the actual creators e.g. the ones doing all of the work (sort of- I wouldn't be motivated to a job well either if it was a poorly paid- relatively speaking, temp job) rather than sitting in an office and they probably don't see one shred of the profits.

Buy it used- off of Ebay that way EA doesn't get one dime- unless you really want the store points ( and the new store stuff is usually posted within a week on other sites- not that I promote arring Store Stuff since it is EA's game and they can charge for content) really it isn't worth it, or just wait til it goes in the Bargain Bin because the Vacation EP's have usually been the least popular in the series so it will probably be selling for 19.99 USD within a year.

Ah, I see. Thanks for clearing that up for me, dstar. I don't want go around hating the wrong people. I don't give a crap about store points. I don't even use most of the items that come with the game.

Alinda - Get the EP used, that way you don't support EA.

-facepalm- Why have I never thought of that? I've been buying new games at full price from Target all this time. It never even occurred to me to find used ones. I should shop online more often. Tongue


Or she could ARRRR it?

Thanks for the advice, but I think I'll stay legit for this one. I admit it, I have thought about it though. XD

I just stumbled upon this post while browsing through the sims 3 forums minutes ago. It was posted by a simguru. Note that they are promoting PAYSITES. Modthesims isn't even on that stupid list.
http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/posts/list/77757.page
I guarantee you Modthesims will NEVER be listed because of their past with having adult-related materials. It doesn't matter that they no longer have adult content there--they USED to and because of that EA has blacklisted them for life. I think that's ludicrous, but hey it's EA we're talking about here.

And what's with Hydra's signature? Whoever made it needs to go back to second grade. It's "Gurus", idiots.

Really? I thought that was what SexySims was for. I don't know much about MTS's past, since I was never really interested in CC until late in the Sims 2 series. That seems so silly. People change. Websites change. They should really give MTS another chance. :\ EA should really see the "More Smutty Than You" thread... or at least take a look at kenmtl's post. Then again, if they did, they wouldn't care anyway.

I think that signature was made by someone for the SimGurus team for a "food fight" game on the forums. I remember seeing the thread before, but it didn't seem very interesting. I didn't even notice that until you pointed it out. There are lots of kids out there. I wouldn't be surprised if whoever made that was in the second grade either.

MTS still has the teen pregency hack and the nude hack.  EA considers that adult content (its stated specifically in their forum guidelines)

I believe it is for one of their... *facepalm*  BBS 'food fights'. I wouldn't be surprised if the "Gurus" were 12s also.

Yet, TSR's stuff is far more adult and they are the favorites - reminds me of when I was growing up.....eventually they will bite EA more directly and they'll be where my sister is now - barely spoken to.
