That was purely EA. They're offering the new appliances right now only as part of the Fiesta pack, which includes those chairs. I guess they figured they'd move more fiesta kitchen cabinets if they offered them with the appliances.

Remaining off topic, but, according to SimsVIP, eating fried foods from the fryer, or ice cream from the machine, will apparently cause weight gain. I'm assuming they mean even if you're hungry when you eat the fried whatevers, which I guess is to keep you from living on fried corndogs every day. Still, I can have key lime pie or cobbler as a favorite food, and as long as I'm not over-stuffing, I won't gain excessive weight from eating it every day.

Maybe I'm reading a bit too much into it, but why would EA pair cooking appliances that cause weight gain with a fiesta "Hispanic" influenced kitchen?

We've hardly been on-topic to begin with.

I wish EA could just announce the next EP, or if we could at least get a name leak for it like we typically do.

If they go the way they went with Pets it's gonna be something very prolix and elaborated like The Sims 3 Weather or something complicated like that.

I got them and put them in a test house I had just built, on a test world. Nothing much for the sim to do... there were books. No pool, so her immediate thought was ice cream maker! She made a beeline for ice cream, then to the fryer to fry it. Finished, cleaned up, then straight to the fryer to fry bacon, back to the ice cream maker to make bacon ice cream (???), then straight to the bathroom to hurl. Rinse, repeat...

It seems the fun factor is a tad bit off the charts for these appliances.

And what is wrong with bacon ice cream?

TS2 and TS3: Where adult sims potty train their toddlers.
TS4: Where adult sims make Angry Poops.

Which game is made for the juvenile minded?

I'd like to take that survey. I want everything they listed there in a weather EP.

Well, the survey does look like it's either legitimate (which I'm not ready to concede quite yet) or a well done fake (which I hope it's not). If it is fake, someone put a LOT of effort into its creation. However, if legit, then it looks like EA is really trying to redeem themselves after all the grief over social networking, Simport, and Katy Perry. I just hope you don't have to Simport to visit an alien wearing a Katy Perry bra, whose sitting on a banana shaped couch in the UFO.

When was the survey given? How long has the weather EP been cooking in the oven? Seriously, if EA really listens to the people in their forums they should have been secretly preparing and keeping the sims 3 seasons EP in the backburner for so long it would be perfect by now...

AND YES to ALIENS and new science careers. A new science career seems like the best bet to get some new kind of crazy career rewards similar to ts2 career/aspiration rewards... My simlife is getting too mundane and normal-lifelike.

Hope they do more than just copy the animations of TS2 slow dance, add some new romantic commands that chain from the slow dance... and do fix it so the romantic bugs that seem to happen with some of the romantic actions (photobooth w/ sibling, prom etc) don't happen with slow dancing with a family member.

WANT swimming in the oceans + Surfing Skill, if possible.

This is so exciting.

I wonder what they mean by sledding... On an inclined lot? Outside the Lots on mountainsides that have snowbanks? How will the game deal with generating banks of snow, both on lots and on the map outside of lots... having believable banks of snow that you can interact with (shoveling snow) seems like the game would have to generate actual physical objects both on lots and on the map itself... might be a strain on laptops... I hope the devs have a better idea.

Edit: THE SURVEY IS STILL OPEN!

How can we access the survey? I've tried to sign up to vgmarket but they don't accept my e-mail, stating that the address (gmail.com) isn't from the required domain...

I took the survey. Fun...

One question they asked at the end concerned how often I'd want to purchase SPs, EPs, and other store items. Can you imagine buying a new EP every month?

I was thinking the same thing when I saw them connecting anthropology with ufology. Confuzzled but I'm not complaining.

They say a Showtime survey came out before its release (and announcement?) Exactly how long beforehand did this survey come out, fi anybody could tell me. (Specifically looking for whether it was before Pets' announcement and/or release or if it was after).

I like the idea of holidays and festivals. It'd be cool to have a big town festival in the park to celebrate. I hope they are creative and come up with their own without just slapping PC terms on existing holidays. And more food stands, yes! Now I can have a proper boardwalk, complete with REAL beaches (sunbathing, swimming).

I doubt we'll actually be able to "explore new worlds" in the water but I wonder if that is maybe hinting at mermaids? Maybe we can do some deep sea diving (likely off-screen) and come back with treasure or a mermaid.
