VG247’s The Best Games Ever Podcast – Ep.46: The best game that features a 90s star

It was the best decade between the 80s and the 2000s. For all of its faults, the one thing you can say about Crime Boss: Rockay City is that Vanilla Ice is in it. Which reminded us of a thing that happened a while back: it was called “the nineties”, and it had loads of good stuff, like the Amiga, Fido Dido, and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. But the nineties were a great time for personalities. Snoop Dogg. Pamela Anderson. Tony Blair. Loads of them. Chyna from the wrestling. The Churchill insurance dog. Bob Mortimer. I could go on….

The Sims 4 patch gets rid of aging bug and incest after accidentally adding them

You read that right. Toddlers were becoming seniors in the blink of an eye, while other sims wanted to date their family members. If you have spent any amount of time with The Sims 4, or even appreciating one of the communities many content creators, you’ll know that the simulation title can be chaotic. Half the charm of The Sims 4 is undoubtedly wedding the weirdest of couples and ultimately finding unique ways to kill them off, but the latest bugs to plague players have taken this to an unprecedented level of strange. Following last weeks’ free update to The…

The Sims 4 Werewolves Game Pack urges you to embrace the full moon

After plenty of teasing, Maxis has finally announced the Werewolves Game Pack for The Sims 4. In the game pack, you can create and fully customize your werewolf using Create a Sim. Werewolves can be “fierce, playful, dramatic, or cuddly,” and all start with a beast and a Sim form that are linked. This provides parity and matches up to the other form. But you can also create a beast of your very own by unlinking the forms and making them distinct by editing face structure, ears, eyes, tufts, and more. The pack is set in Moonwood Mill, a former…

The Sims 4 Scenarios

How do Scenarios work in The Sims 4? There have been fan-made Sims challenges for as long as there have been Sims games, but now the makers of The Sims 4 have introduced Scenarios into official gameplay. This new type of gameplay challenge works a bit differently to existing Aspirations, Lot Challenges, and so on. Scenarios are attached to every Sim in a household, have a unique set of starting and victory conditions, and — crucially — are quite open-ended, leaving it to the player to work out the best way to complete them. If that all seems a bit…
