So here I am, being super cool, staying up on a Thursday night of my weekoff playing Sims 2 because I just bought a new expansion pack (shut it). And I'm all 'zomg opening my business' when I notice in the background the Epoxies playing! Being it's 2 AM, I think I am losing it. But it's definately the Epoxies, and after googling it up, I was right.

So being that story was completely random and hard to build a discussion off of, discuss how much you all love the Epoxies :)

I actually knew about that. They recorded a simlish version of Need More Time or something.

Anyway, I like the Epoxies more than I like most things. The new EP makes gives me multiple orgasms with its Wipers cover and sexy new slow jam.

Which reminds me I've been meaning to make a thread about The Wipers because they rule.

No, **** Open For Business. That expansion brought nothing cool except robots and elevators. Now University and Pets brought a whole bunch of cool stuff, but not Open For Business. I mean, to actually open a business in that game requires you to bog your pc down switching back and forth from your home site and business site, and it's real hard to get your star rating up. So I was like **** It.

I have every expansion pack and stuff pack for the Sims. I love it that much.

For serious. I used to have every pack for the Sims but I just kinda never got Sims 2. And I'm slow to get the expansions for it because I barely have time to goof off on my computer. The commute between house and work blows though. But I thought it was pretty easy to get the star rating up. Within a few hours of playing I had people coming in writing positive reviews and I had silver status in 3 skills.

p.s. I definately played it for 4 hours straight..d'oh. I need to see sunlight again.


p.s.s. Zomg I'm happy someone brought up the Bowie house. When I started to get bored in my neighborhood, I started making freakishly accurate Sims of my favorite old rockers. Like I made a Bowie household (with his own Iman!). And then I made a Freddy Mercury...and all the girls (and boys) in the neighborhood loved him

Wipers cover?

All I've heard by them is one song off Limewire, from a few months ago. It was alright, forget what it was called. This however, has piqued my interest.

Yeah they cover Tragedy on their most recent EP.

You can also tell they have a strong Wipers influence to begin with.

The Sims was only fun with Rosebud and that glitch where you could remove your player from the screen and then put him/her back to get full stats.

Otherwise it was too annoying.

I made my own Ai file called "White Panther".

It doesn't use any siege weapons, petards or trebuchets.

It grows at lightning speed, uses tons of units of cavalry archers, light cavalry, knights, pikemen and crossbowmen, and is nigh on impossible to beat above moderate unless you go for a relic or wonder victory, but even then it'll immiediately send batches of 100 units at you several times during the coundown.

It also detects what units you have and starts building another suitable unit to counter it.

For example, if it sends knights in, and you build camels, it starts churning out pikemen, too.

It's way better than the standard ai, and you almost literally cannot win against it if it plays as persians, huns, british or koreans.

Extremely fun on the "rivers" random map, and cuts through towers, walls and castles like a knife through butter.

yeah...but the faulty of the game is that if you just hum and get to the correct pitch and tone and ****, it still says it's good. so you really don't have to sing. I don't know any of the lyrics of any of the songs cept the ramones and the clash, so humming comes in handy if you can't read fast enough...

but some assholes just hum every song...**** faces...

Damn, that kind of sucks a ****.

Still, humming could be a pretty cool thing to do in real music, too, so it's certainly not unvalid.
