Mod Adds College System To The Sims 4

They have already added working hotels and K-12 schools to The Sims 4. But Sims modders still haven’t had enough. Will they ever? Let’s hope not.


Origin Accounts Are Becoming EA Accounts It Seems

A Few Extra Features Just Made The Sims 4 A Lot Better

The Next SWTOR Expansion Looks Like The Same Old Thing

At E3, Bioware announced a new expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic, dubbed Knights of the Fallen Empire. At its start, players will be frozen in carbonite for five years and when they’re thawed out will find that something called the Eternal Empire came out of nowhere to smash both the Republic and Sith Empire and take control of the galaxy. I don’t know what any of that means, and it appears this new faction is original to this expansion. It’s all very confusing and mysterious, as video game marketing is prone to be. But I do know one thing: it looks like more of the same stuff Bioware has been putting into SWTOR since release, and that’s not a great vibe.
