What you all thinking after watching the gameplay in a European style.

Post Re: Get together
Here is a link to the news page, including the release trailer.

I was immediately pissed off that it didn't say anything about toddlers. I was really hoping for that... it's been almost a year and I feel like this would have been the perfect time to add them.

I will admit that I find the concept interesting. I like the look of the new world and I like having more things for my sims to do. They are really focusing on group interactions, which I like. I played the Sims 3 last week and I was a little disappointed when my sims couldn't multi-task and do a lot of group socializing. I like the idea of having a clique of snobby girls or a group of sports enthusiasts who all kind of act the same way.

That being said, one thing that my friends and I like to do is go out for a meal at a restaurant... that is still missing from the game and I think this would have been a great place to add it. So, while I like what I see, I also feel like a couple of things are still missing. Maybe the release trailer didn't include everything but I think that if restaurants were a part of the EP, they would have mentioned it.

I'll be watching for more info and will probably end up buying this EP.

It looks kinda of like a vacation pack with a focus on partying and group activities.

I like the sound of group activities(provided they're not limited to adults, teens need something to do dammit), not sure about the rest.

I need to hear/see more.

I was thinking the same thing; I hope the new groups and interactions aren't limited to just adults, teenagers definitely need to have more of a life!

To me, the concept feels like a combination of Livin' Large and House Party, which isn't a bad thing. I like the new skills, Dancing and DJing, and the new female hair looks pretty good.

A little refreshing to see a spiritual successor to the first Sims expansion packs ever.

It is like Livin' Large, House Party, and Nightlife/Late Night.

I agree, Spode, I immediately thought of the original Sims EPs when I watched the trailer. It's not a bad concept. I hope the Late Night/Nightlife-like EP is still to come and will feature a working restaurant...

According to this interview:

Kids and teens can have social groups too.

To be honest, I've seen nothing yet to make me interested in this. And I tried. I read an article, watched the trailer and some video with Lyndsey and another lady. Yes, I'm disappointed it's not toddlers or anything family related or what not. But I'd be happy if it was something remotely interesting. Okay so groups. Give us fun places to take them? Like bowling alleys, a restaurant, the movies, etc... The new town or whatever looks cute, I'll give them that. But so far, I'm not interested and I really want to be. :meh:

^I totally agree, Kira. If there were more new, fun places for them to go, that would totally make this EP worth buying.

I feel like this is a wonderful concept idea however I think they should add college if they're introducing more group activities and cliques.
As for the restaurant quote I agree! I would love to bring the hot date aspect back. I'd settle just for the option to eat at a rabbit hole again too though.

I agree, Alyssah, a playable restaurant is ideal but give us a rabbit hole restaurant at least.

He sounds pretty positive about it! I've been watching a Let's Play for it and I kinda want it but then it's $40 so idk. Ugh.

Damn, that is a really great review and after hearing more about it and seeing more actual gameplay, it does look like it could be a lot of fun. I really want to create a cult... I'm still going to try to wait for it to come down in price since I don't have a lot of time to play right now but that might change over Christmas...

Sooo I bought it and played it today. And it's actually a lot of fun! I had my sim Scarlett make a group that meets at night clubs where they dance, chat, and eat. And it's pretty fun! I wonder if there's a way for her to own a night club and live there since she's seriously like never home. xD You can make kid oriented groups too so if I settle her down I want to make a kid group. :D Lots of possibilities really.

Damn Kira, now I might have to break down and buy it as well! :laugh: I haven't played any of my Sims games in over a month and I'm really craving a session... Get Together might be the perfect excuse to spend tonight on the computer. :nod:

Sorry! xD I blame the Let's Play I watched and LGR's review. The club system is actually pretty neat. And it's so easy to use. If you decide you don't like something you picked you can just change things up. I was going to share some pics but I forgot and now I don't have time. D:
