THE SIMS 4:  AMAZON VERIFIED PURCHASE REVIEWS

So far, The Sims 4 has a disappointing 2.2 stars out of 5 on Amazon.  When looking at only the reviews with the “Verified Purchase” tag that low rating still bears up.  “Disappointed” “bamboozled” and “waste of money” is a common theme among the reviews.

Amazon is only one source of feedback, of course.  The first impressions from around the community (from fans) have been fairly upbeat and positive I think – even with the disappointment over the missing features people have come to expect from a Sims base game. 

We’re still waiting for The Sims 4 reviews from the gaming press due to EA’s decision not to give out the customary advance review copies.  Some are offering preliminary feedback though:

  • The Sims 4 on Metacritic –Metacritic
  • The Sims 4 Review In Progress –IGN
  • Sims 4 Real World: Recognizing your Joystiq in The Sims 4 (Livestream) –joystiq
  • What’s new, what’s missing and what’s bizarre in The Sims 4 –Polygon
  • Where Is Our Review Of The Sims 4? –GameInformer
  • My First Few Hours With The Sims 4 –Kotaku
  • The Sims 4 user impressions are not particularly positive –IncGamers

How to fix your TS4 game when it won’t launch

Yesterday I was having major problems with this and saw a lot of other people were too, thankfully tinysimmer came to my rescue with a solution so I thought I’d make a published article for anyone who may be having problems

So the problem was whenever I started TS4 it would get stuck like this and eventually crash:

Save yourself some trouble and DO NOT delete all game folders or try to reinstall, simply follow these steps:

This method works for digital copies

Step 1: Launch origin

Step 2: Right click your game and select game properties

Step 3: Click the box that says “disable origin in game” THEN PRESS OK

Step 4: Launch TS4 again and it should work now! Hope this helped anyone!

THE SIMS 4: DEFORMED BABIES


The day one patch apparently fixed numerous issues with The Sims 4 babies but it didn’t fix all of them.  We first heard about these issues yesterday but a growing number of people are starting to report the same problem. Anyone else with glitched babies? 

THE SIMS 4 BABY GLITCH (Video)
“This baby glitch seems to be happening a lot. Anyone who’s posting videos about the Sims 4 babies are having the same problem. Hopefully they release a patch for this ASAP.” –Natalie Gambrill

WTH HAPPENED TO MY BABY!
“Ok. Playing my game. Got my main family, got a second family. The plan was to have each family have a baby at the same time, so that way the kids could grow up together, eventually become childhood sweethearts and one day get together. One couple did get pregnant …. then this happened.” –Gruffman

DEFORMED BABY BUG THREAD - LINKED TO SIMS 4 BUG THREAD
“This thread has been created to gather information on those that are having the deform baby bug. Most issue we have seen have twin issues. However, if you have the bug regardless of twins or a single birth post all of your information.” –blunote00

UPDATEYour graphics card may be the issue & New video added – priceless.

“It does look like it’s related to some video cards. We’re looking into it.” –Lyndsay Pearson

UPDATE 9-3-2014  “We’re digging into it. We have some ideas for some of them, we do know what’s causing freaky babies and we’re working on the fix.” –Lyndsay Pearson
