The Sims Series RipTen reviews The Sims 3 Showtime Posted on March 12, 2012 0 0 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Share on Pinterest Share on Tumblr For someone new to the Sims franchise, it’s a little difficult to tell the difference between the base game content and the new content in the expansion. I spent the first few hours playing what turned out to be base content. Aside from a few hairstyles, clothes and home furnishings, the meat of the expansion is in the new professions: singer, acrobat, magician or DJ. I chose the magician path and got many hours of entertainment from learning new tricks, getting gigs and earning lots of Simoleans. There’s also a new mechanic for progressing in these careers. In the base game you’re tied to a more traditional career path. You have a set schedule and wage. You need to schmooze with your coworkers, suck up to your boss and determine how much effort you put in at your workplace. You could be a workaholic and reach maximum job level and salary quickly or you could be a complete slacker and risk getting fired. Not so in Showtime. You’re responsible for setting your own schedule, getting your own gigs and controlling your rise to stardom. You get a weekly stipend based on your performer level, so don’t worry, even when you’re first starting out you won’t be completely broke. continue reading Never Miss The Latest News About The SimsJoin our mailing list to receive the latest updates about The Sims games, and exclusive content, straight to your inbox.
