MySims now official

MySims now official

It's long been known that EA has a Sims game in the works for Wii. A recent announcement confirms the title will be known as MySims, which shall be exclusive to the Wii and DS platforms.

MySims promises to take players into a brand new Nintendo-inspired world where the Sims can interact in inventive ways.

As expected, the character customization options are there, more in depth than ever before. A number of styles and accessories are available to your Sim at creation.

The start of the game sees you moving into a dead-end town which needs a lot of work to get it moving again.

Executive Producer Tim LeTourneau commented:"We want MySims to provide a creative play experience like never before on a video game system. By giving players the tools to create literally any kind of world they want, we're reinforcing the idea that the players create the magic. Will the town support a plethora of spooky, mysterious townsfolk? or buzz with the laughter and smiles of fun-loving Sims? It's your call. In MySims, what players make - makes all the difference".

The cartoon style graphics have received mixed reactions from hardcore Sims fans (is that an oxymoron?), it may be a case of love it or hate it for many.

Personally, up until now I've more enjoyed the handheld Sims titles like "Bustin' Out" (GBA) and "Urbz" (DS) which are more goal-oriented, rather than open-ended.

Yeah. People who hate it are probably people who don't like "super-kawaii" stuff.

Why EA chose cutesy wootsey graphics, we may never know. Here comes the bashing EA.

Personally I kind of like this new "cutesey wootsey" graphics. It's easier to work with, meaning a lot more can be done, and since this can work with Wi-fi (so I've heard?) I think this game has a lot of potential.

EA chose it because it would appeal to the Japanese.

I agree with what Yoshi-1up said. People need to start liking cute things, like this. I hope this will be the Sims game for me!

Wonder if they'll EVER ditch talking gibberish. One miracle at the time though.

I agree Master Foot. Time and time again we see developers opting for the "cute" graphics on the Nintendo systems. I think it goes back to the stigma that Nintendo is for kids. People in the past have blamed Nintendo for creating this but it seems that it is the developers that continue to push the kiddie graphics for the Nintendo systems while taking a more mature approach to the other platforms.

I was actually looking forward to more realistic-looking Sims, so that's a little disappointing.

I might consider this IF we can get our miis into the game and if it had some sort of downloadable content to be able to use your mii more.

This new Sims game is going to be differrent from all of the other Sims games that were made from before. The graphics have been changed into "cutesy wootsey" things. The past games were like a more mature looking. Well, I hope it turns out being good.

It's about time that they made a FUN sims. It bores me when I have to use a cheat code so my sim would stop having to sit on the toilet. I hope it lives up to my expectations! GO EA.
