Not funny,  
not funny at all, EA.

So, EA's brought itself the fans' ire, once more. Not long ago, they announced there were no toddlers or swimming pool in the Sims 4 base game, both of which I don't really care about anyway but I understand the rage since swimming pool always were in the base game since the franchise beginning. And toddlers since they were introduced in the Sims 2. And knowing EA, both will probably be featured in future add-on at a juicy price. Oh dear, I miss the time when an add-on costed me about 30 bucks, now it's twice that...

Anyway, certainly to make up for that, they've been distributing demo to players using their origin accounts. So, earlier, opened my mails and got a surprise: "You have been specifically chosen for this demo because of your experience on the Sims 3 game". Yeah, right. My experience... More like all the money I spent in it (though I didn't buy all the extension), and long-time gamers are often the most virulent and resilient to change ones, and very bitchy. Don't worry EA, I'm quite loyal, not mad and stupid, you've had my money the moment you announced the Sims 4.

But, there's one thing very frustrating about receiving that mail. Just one tiny detail.



GAME'S ONLY FOR WINDOWS.

Fuck this shit. Omg XD *shakes head*

No but really, I knew it'd be for windows-only for the moment but still, the thing is just like mocking me, seating there in my account although I know all the features already because I checked the videos'

I guess they'll release the Mac version later (because the Sims always been for Mac and PC). I don't mind that much since I could always install Windows.

But really, even if it's frustrating as hell, I don't mind that much. My biggest hope for the game is that, this time, the portage to Mac won't be half-assed. I mean, it doesn't even really run on Mac: it uses Cider, a program that simulates Windows to make it work on Mac (I use a similar program to run GIMP). So, the game isn't really adapted to Mac and it's buggy as hell, and unstable.

I'd be really disappointed if they don't do something about that, more than anything in the game itself XD

Yeah, the thing's like teasing me so much, sitting around in my account and telling me it's only for Windows XD

C'est pas exceptionnel... Beaucoup d'utilisateurs de MAC mette créée une session Windows afin de pouvoir jouer.

C'est aussi pour ça que je ne prendrai jamais de mac mais un pc : je veux pouvoir jouer tranquillement sans me soucier de la puissance de la carte graphique etc, en plus du fait "compatible ou non"

Nope, le problème, c'est qu'EA soit pas fichu de créer une vraie version Mac et que celle qu'on ait pour les Sims, c'est la version Windows qui tourne sur un programme qui la rend compatible avec Mac: ce qui fait que le jeu est instable au possible.

Perso, c'est pas avec un Mac que tu auras à te soucier de la puissance graphique ou des specs en général. C'est l'avantage, tu as la puissance et les specs et ils seront valables pour plusieurs années.

Mais bon, oui, ça sert à rien s'il faut choisir les trucs compatibles au final XD Perso, pour les laptop, je prendrais toujours Mac, mais quand je me ferai un pc de bureau, je prendrais Windows.
