Step outside the the box and limitations of the old Sims and get ready for a whole new Sims world. Watch out for the guy with make-up, I have a feeling that he would be one of the main characters in the upcoming game. Check out the all-new screenshots, blogs from the developers, cool stuff, and more from The Sims 3 Team. And yes, the annoying jogger still runs past your house every morning.

The UK receptionist/gymnast Alison Caroll has just been announced as the new face of Lara Croft. No more Angelina Jolie? Not quite, according to the Telegraph:
“But Carroll has not landed a movie role – instead she will promote the new Tomb Raider video game, Underworld, which is released in November. Nell McAndrew found fame as the first Lara Croft model in the 1990s. Carroll will star in TV adverts and travel the world to meet Lara Croft fans.
“This is a fantastic opportunity and I am really looking forward to embracing Lara’s world,” she said. “I still can’t believe they chose me to take on the role of Lara – and I can’t wait to get stuck in. This is my dream job. I have always wanted to be an action hero and hope to be able to use my gymnastic ability to perform all of Lara’s stunts.”
After the first two episodes of “Dead Fantasy” which includes the girls from“Final Fantasy” as well as the girls from the 3D fighting game series, “Dead or Alive,” people are longing for the third episode. I’m sorry to tell you that the third episode is not here yet, but here’s something that will make you look forward to the third episode: A poster with the theme of “Wrath of the Fiend Ninja.” It is also the cover of the DVD which includes a teaser of the episode created by Monty Oum.
It’s just been announced that the designer/photographer will be playing a role in the newest installment of Grand Theft Auto, where he’ll DJ on air at the game’s K109 The Studio station.
According to WWD “Players can pick from multiple radio stations for the soundtrack, ranging from licensed songs to new ones. Lagerfeld picked his favorite electronica and dance music and peppered the selection with some of his rapid-fire commentary. ‘They had written a politically incorrect dialogue,’ the designer said. ‘I loved it, [particularly] in a time when everybody wants to be so politically correct when they talk.’ He didn’t have to dig too deep to find his music selection. ‘Music is part of the life of fashion, too,’ he said. ‘Through the famous sound stylist Michel Gaubert, I’m very much ‘au courant’ and know what’s going on.'”
Monty Oum, a digital art group, is launching its series named “Dead Fantasy.” It includes the girls from the hip RPG series “Final Fantasy” as well as the girls from the 3D fighting game series, “Dead or Alive.” In this movie, you can see the girls from both games try to battle each other out (with the chicks from DOA as a team against the chicks from FF series).
Here’s what Monty said, “First thing I usually decide on when I make a movie is the “why is this cool?” And as far as this movie goes, the coolest part about the movie is how it ends. Which is what you’ll see after watching it, and why I’m really REALLY excited about getting started on Dead Fantasy II-V. But more on that later.”
So you like the first episode of Dead Fantasy posted above and longing for more? Here’s the second episode:
Yep, it’s official. The game which took almost 3 years for the game engine to be made is coming in 2009. The Sims 3 allow unique sims to walk around their neighbourhoods. We now know:
1) Seamless, lively new neighbourhoods
2) Entirely new “create a sim”
3) New realistic personalities
4) New unlimited customization
Apparently there will be no transitions when your sims move from one place to another. They can just walk away from the house and visit anyone they want, freely. Who knows? They may walk into their nemesis or bosses (I smell interesting plots).
The new and improved “create a sim” allow more detail control of molding. I guess we can really get the look we want(I’m so reviving Anna Nicole Smith). Not only more bone structures, hair colours, skin tones and features to select from, The Sims 3 introduces a “trait system.” (It’s even patented) The sims could be given five different traits each, so I can make a neat, grumpy, control freak, emotional granny. Just to save you the work from doing the math, this allows 7 million traits combinations. YAY, not more same sims walking around!
