Anyway I plan on getting way more into detail on my latest exploits with The Sims 3 and my anticipation for the upcoming expansion packs (stuff pack due out in September, EP to follow in October!). I also have some sheepish rebuttals to make to my original criticisms of Ambitions in my post below. For now, I will leave you with a quick list of awesome old games I scavenged from my mom's house when visiting this weekend: Sierra's Pharaoh and Zeus (and strategy guides for both), Black & White Deluxe edition w/ Creature Isle expansion, Age of Mythology w/ Titans expansion, and the only non-PC game, Nintendogs Dachsund & Friends (okay not that old but still so cute). Looking forward to trying (hopefully not in vain) to make these old computer games work on my awesome "gaming computer" and 22" monitor!
Also, is it just me or was Sierra kind of the best developer EVER? They were responsible for seriously every game I consider one of my classic favorites, not to mention so many amazing series like King's Quest. I pine for those days of gaming!
