The lights are on
EA’s Sims come to life like never before in the upcoming simulation sequel, but their emotions could get the better of them.
During an EA pre-Gamescom press conference, the studio gave a new demo of the Sims 4. Building homes looks easier than ever in the Sims 4, since you can place rooms and pull on them to expand their size. Sims are also easier to design, since you can push and pull on their features to mold them like clay.
The demo continued as EA showed how the Sim’s emotions effect their daily lives. In the demo, two Sims were fighting for the affections of the same woman. Andre played a violin, which made Allie cry and then Allie used a voodoo doll to make Andrew angry. With their emotions running wild, both men had trouble winning over Sophie. EA also promised that this new “emotional” gameplay would have long-lasting effects on your Sim’s life.
One other big news announcement to come out of the show is the fact that the game will contain one Sim that is created by a Gamescom attendee who demos the game this week during the show. Stay tuned for further details about the game when we go deeper with it later this week.

I just want all the expansion packs to come to consoles. Really the only thing that keeps me playing the series on PC rather than PS, since I don't really care about multiplayer. If I just had the loads of extra features I'd be happy playing on consoles.
www.youtube.com/watch Trailer for you guys.
Super excited for this game but no information released today has interested me (emotions and pulling faces?). I'm looking forward to seeing some gameplay action of The Sims 4.
That's really cool, but I am the only one who really wishes that Simville had taken off?
Interesting,i want to hear more on the game.
Sims 4!!! Yay!!!!!!!!!
Tell me when they aren't miliking the game with expansions, then I will consider buying it.
It'd be cool if there was a multiplayer component. I really don't know why it's never been done. People could have their sims hang out, create relationships together. They could add minigames on the computers in-game. Plenty of possibilities. I have a hard time purchasing and putting a lot of hours into a game that's only single player.
Hope it comes out on consoles too!
I liked the new CAS, seems really fun, but hopefully the emotions won't get in the way as much. Wouldn't want my sim feeling depressed all the time from hearing sad music .
