6:00 AM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

IMG's Josh Jansen has published his review of Livin' Large, an expansion pack for Aspyr MediaThe Sims. The review covers in detail all the new features of Livin' Large, ranging from Gothic and retro-1950's furniture themes to the wacky new occupations you can choose from. Here, Josh describes a day in the life of a "normal" Sim:

It is interesting of course, especially finding out how low you are on the journalism ladder, then taking up drinking after finding out, then living the next month in an alcoholic haze punctuated by random acts of violence and word processing after realizing why every day seems to be more and more like the game and you have no way of knowing if you are real or not and finally smoking and drinking yourself into oblivion or a hole in your backyard hiding from the person you can almost see when looking up into the sky and jumping up and down and yelling at him in a nonsensical way with such phrases as "De hab-o labo te!" and "Beeno bannidea!"...
Josh also gives tips on the uses of the Concoctonation Station, how to become the Brad Pitt of Simville, and ways to kill of your favorite Sim; as much of a tutorial on how to enjoy the game as a review of the expansion itself.
