Have you played tf2? The hats just make you look different, the weapons have very different stats and uses.
I was going to say this as well, but in a previous post he acknowledges that he knows the weapons do different things, so I think he might have fucked up.
Anyway, you're definitely trolling.
You can't counter-argue the fact that Maxis fucks over Sims fans because they know the Sims demographic will shell out whatever they can for the same shit. It's like Facebook apps or something. But it's not entirely Maxis' fault as Maxis was releasing content somewhat fairly during the first Sims... EA just had them re-hash content and shit after they realized just how much $ they could make off the franchise.
You're saying that because I don't enjoy Sims games, I can't discuss problems with Sims games.
That would mean by your logic that a reviewer such as one of IGN's Your favourite review website I'd assume so this is my example
can't talk poorly about a game if the reviewer doesn't like that genre of game.
That is simply incorrect. If you know how the basic principles of game design work, if you know how to tell when someone is being ripped off or not, if you know whether or not the content you are playing is worth what you are paying then you are completely obligated to have your own valid opinion on a game.
The Sims is a series with a great chunk of content. I'm not insulting the series (although it is mindlessly repetitive, which is why I don't like it... but I enjoyed WoW for a long time, which was ALSO mindlessly repetitive, so I can somewhat understand the appeal) I'm just saying that EA + Maxis scam their customers, outright. Sims fans don't point it out because Sims fans don't have the voices to raise. That's understandable, the Battlefield community as well as the CoD community have both had this problem at one point or another.
But if you're honestly going to sit there and tell me that this:http://thesims.com/e...the-sims-3-pets
Is okay, and that Maxis couldn't have just included that exact feature in all 3 games (which are essentially all the same in the first place, just an increase in technology + slight features... which I don't agree with but I'm not even arguing about here) then you're either trolling or retarded.
Also I'm not saying IGN Reviewers make valid points of opinion on games.
Not that they never do, but usually it's pretty obvious that what drives IGN reviews is generally based off how much money they've recently unexpectedly found in their pockets.
