Tales of a Gaming Wannabe: Your Crash Course in Gaming from the Person Who Knows Nothing About Gaming


I’ve always kinda liked video games. Boredom is not a word that factors in my vocabulary. I’ve got a lot of hobbies, way more than is reasonable for any human being.

This is doubly the case when it comes to the Aussie games scene which features such a high level of talent that one must do something exceptionally amazing to stand out.

The Sims 3 – Save Game: University Life!

Late for class!

  For those of you just joining this little adventure, the idea is this:  I made some Sims from our Save Game family here and popped them into a world with a ton of expansion packs so I could gleefully watch silliness ensue.  It’s been a treat.  You may remember that last time we left our Sims, they’d all enrolled in college, which I can only assume is totally natural for people who are about 30 years old.
