Maxis Announces New Expansion Pack For The Sims!

Redwood City, California - In a surprise announcement today, newly appointed Maxis General Manager Neil Young revealed plans for a new Expansion Pack for the original version of their immensely popular computer game, The Sims.

"I'm the new guy in town," said Young "and I wanted to make my mark in the company early on. Given our recent decision to completely revamp the look and game-play of The Sims 2, and the certain agonizing delays that will bring with it, it was practically a foregone conclusion to keep that Sims' gravy train rolling with a new Expansion Pack - hence the idea for The Sims: Makin' Mischief."

In the game, players try to play pranks on other Sims. Previous versions of the Sims have all involved managing your Sims in a way that keeps them happy and healthy, but Makin' Mischief turns this game-play on it's head, where players are rewarded for the bad behavior they can successfully heap on their Sim characters.

Young showed a playable demo of the game to the packed house of reporters: "Okay, now see how this characters' bladder is almost full? I know that within moments, he's going to have to use the bathroom, so now is a perfect time to use the crazy-glue anti-social interaction on the toilet seat."

Within minutes, Mr. Young's Sim was stuck to toilet, furiously mad, but unable to free himself to exact revenge.

"It's all about anticipating the need of your Sims, and then cruelly twisting their lives into a horror-show of pain of humiliation," Young chuckled. "It's a good thing I gave him some room-mates to help free him, or else he would just sit there until…well, until he starved to death, presumably. The game can be a little dark at times."

I think it's a good April Fools Joke. I know that it's March 2nd.

The Sims is good game, but I lost my interest when my The Sims: On Holiday exploded to our CD-driver. So that was the end of my Sims...I think I haven't played it since then.... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif

On Holiday is great! You can "travel" by ship to the vacation island and choose the hotel where you go to. It brings lots of great objects to use and nice textures. I liked it a lot. Get it! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

I loved The Sims a lot, but after I lost On Holiday and noticed that new expansion packs come all the time, I came up that I don't get any more sims games. They take so much room from your hardrive.
