That makes a lot of sense @applefeather2.

I do miss them being able to talk while fishing though. I hope EA will change this sometime.

Maybe this has had some influence on their Sims club plans?

Edit: EA Access is its name.

I have no idea if EA Access is doing well with the public, but it's kinda like netflix and spotify, you pay a small monthly fee to play whatever is on their catalog.

I think premium subscription for Battlefield and season pass for Titanfall on Origin came before this. So it seems this is here to stay, but these are multiplayer games with server priorities for people paying more. They kinda seem to be the same thing, early access, some discount on EPs/Dlcs yet to be released...it seems like a way to fund the development of these contents even though you have no idea of what's coming next.
For DAI multiplayer they promised to keep adding stuff for free and that we can unlock anything on it by playing but there will be(or maybe there is already, I haven't checked) a paid option for players who want to pay to unlock things faster(and possibly some server priority as well, all I see is people complaining about lag, I haven't really played it).

Let's just agree to disagree.

If this is a replacement for the SPs, I'm still not particular interested, but I'm happy. It looks *much* better value for money than a SP. SP were *awful*.

I'm excited for this. I've been wanting more outdoors-y stuff to do and the price point seems good.

So was Sweet Treats, that's why it was pulled—a sell out.

I think I still own that TS2 Christmas SP. It was like the first ever SP and all the items had either already been released on the official site or had come with a special holiday edition version of the game already, I can't remember.
Oh the things you get given for Christmas when you're 11.

Grant said he was working on stuff and game packs after a "no comment" on if there will still be stuff packs. *facepalm* it seems like there will still be stuff packs, but hopefully cheaper this time around.

You don't have to wear the bear suit after all. I guess, never know with these folks. You know, "things change".

Every time I watch that stargazing scene, I wait apprehensively for a satellite to fall from
the sky and crush both of them. I guess I've played too much sims 2.

Okay but by far that was the best death in the series.
Your sims would just be minding their own business when suddenly completely unavoidable death would fall from the sky.

Are those EA cards still around? I ask because I've been in Target (this is where people were seeing them when they first came out) a few times in my area and they're gone. They used to be on a end cap where they keep their I-Tunes cards, WOW cards, ect.. and there is no EA / Sims 4 cards. For shits and giggles I checked where they keep physical copies of the games and they're not there either.

I wouldn't be surprised if the cards were pulled as it was a really stupid idea to begin with. They made them, but they were only good in the US and Canada.

Why do I feel like the bear NPC is just a normal sim with all of their outfits sets to the near costume and a lot of mean traits?

That's probably true, if we get NPC, that is. But if we get, and ONLY if we get the NPC (which I highly doubt), I would wonder if it looks like Claire Ursine XD

Yeah, they are at the Gamestops here in Chicago, IL. I might be assuming the EA cards are every where, I will look to see what's at Target today when I finish my Xmas shopping.

Found mine at target, and you redeem it by going to www.ea.com, sign in, click on account, click on shipping and payment, clicking on add to account balance and there is a bar to input the card number, the card itself says to go to www.ea.com/cashcards, but that takes you to an error page, just in case anyone was wondering how to redeem them

I wonder how EA will carry forth remedies in this pack. Sims can't get sick, so everything in the pack would be self contained. If sickness is added (why wouldn't it be?), what will be of remedies? Will it get an upgrade?

Generally when they release paid gameplay or expansions they release a free patch to the base game to make sure it is compatible, like the countless patches to sims 3, they also said that sims 4 is a live service and the free updates won't be going away, kind of reminds me of an mmo formula, free patches and bug fixes with optional dlc and expansions, a good example of this is world of Warcraft, difference being there is no subscription fee, and it's not like the game is completely offline because it has online features, it is just unlike any mmo that anyone has ever played before, more like a hybrid

I know of the patches. I only ask because EA weren't really find of mechanic integration from EP to EP.

Can we add a 'pathetic' button? Or perhaps 'just sad"? ( I am referring to EA/the 'folks' you refer to.)

Remember how roommates were handled with the patch in for Sims 3 Uni? Didn't quite work properly until you bought the EP, like you can have roommates but couldn't control the amount and couldn't get rid of them? I imagine the same will happen with your illness scenerio.

University Life is still both one of my favorite and least favorite TS3 EPs.
