Welcome to Big Boards. Big Boards at one time offered the Zathyus network our long famous Resource Archives, our extensive search indexes, and our info-packed resource forums. Eventually, these were made redundant by upgrades to the documentations and expanded search features added to the ZetaBoards software, and this forum then lost relevancy and subsequently became inactive.

Our team then embarked on a new project called Planet Nexus, where a bold new experiment in forum promotion is taking place. We call it nexworking. NexusTree offers social networking pages for forums in a fully automated format. Your NexusTree page is created instantly when your join the nexus. Find out more by visiting Planet Nexus, and become part of the nexworking revolution.

I'm going to hold out before getting it. From the reviews I've read, although a decent game, it's not worth the hype it has/had. I've also heard that Maxis has cut corners with Sims 3 - you don't have as many options with babies and Sims stand next to cars and teleport in rather than open the door. The jump from Sims 1 to Sims 2 was amazing, I'd even say revolutionary. The upgrade from 2 to 3? Not so much.

Also, Sims 3 isn't for the player who likes to play different house holds. Because Maxis has taken free will to pretty much the highest level, it seems like the game intends you to only play one household.

So yeah, I'll hold out. Too bad you can't rent computer games, huh?

Yeah, I would hold off. I got it and, though my computer had all of the requirements, it still ran completely slow, the graphics were sort of fuzzy, and it just wasn't what I'd thought it would be. Disappointing. In my opinion it almost seems like this should have been Sims 2, and Sims 2 should have been Sims 3. The only things I really liked where the personality options (clumsy, artistic, etc), the customizable colors for shoes and clothes as well as being able to switch thing up like change the shoes that went with an outfit, and the increased range of movement for the neighborhood.

Yeah. Build-a-sim was the biggest feature they worked on, I think.
