The Sims 2: Nightlife. I May Never See Daylight Again

The Sims 2: Nightlife fucking rocks.

I purchased it yesterday - with all the hoopla that's been going on around here, I'd totally forgotten it was coming out!

I'd read a little about it, but not much, b/c the excitement would be too great. I know, I really should get a life. Anyway, there's lots of content that I didn't realize would be there but am VERY GLAD it is!

For starters, falling in love with another Sim is a much more complicated thing than it used to be - your Aspirations should be compatible, along with your Zodiac signs, and your turn-ons and turn-offs should be in in sync.

Vampires are a great new addition to the game, the way they walk around with their arms over their faces in classic-Vampire style and hiss periodically is a hoot. Vampires, apparently, do not die of Old Age or any unnatural causes - but they will perish if left out in the daytime; they sleep in coffins that you purchase in Buy Mode. I haven't seen it yet, but apparently a Sim Vampire out during the day will have all his Needs rapidly deteriorate until he dies - or you quickly get him inside and in his coffin. I hope to get one of my Sims turned into a vampire soon by one of the Grand Vampires downtown.

Speaking of the dead, Maxis heard our pleas, and you can now create cemetaries/parks to place your deceased family members when you don't want to get rid of them permanently, but also don't want to be bothered by their restless spirits for the rest of your life. Once these graves are moved to the cemetary, you can visit and mourn them there, or move them back home if ever should so choose. A very cool addition.

There are lots of little things and I can't go into them all, but the ep is amazing. The music is something else - all these different, funky themes of the original The Sims 2 theme on loading/building screens. Very nice.

One of the most fascinating additions for me was the ability to *see* your neighborhood while you are on a particular lot. This, like the new cars, has never been done in a Sims game before. You can see your neighbors around you, and if you're Downtown, you can see the other buildings - just click and go to visit them!

I was so hoping you'd be able to WooHoo in the cars - and you can! New places to WooHoo is always a bonus to sex fiend Sim-players like myself.

Slow dancing is another animation that I really like, along with "The Smustle" - a line dance thing Sims do together that about had me pissing my pants with laughter.

The ability to chat up prospective mates is a nice bonus - you can ask them their skills, turn-ons/turn-offs, how much they make, and what their jobs are. Great for the Fortune Sims on the prowl for a wealthy spouse or Family Sims looking a good supporter to start a family with.

Karaoke is another piss-on-yourself laugh inducer. Sims can sing solo, or pair up with another Sim to make an ass of themselves. Sims with low Creativity skills sound horrible - much to your amusement.

There are so many great things about the game, and I'm just learning them as I go. For any Sim fan out there asking if it's worth it to have - I'd have to give a resounding "Yes!"; even if only for the neighborhood view while on a lot - it makes it so much more "realistic".
