Sims 3 Into the Future expansion pack review

A surprisingly rich expansion
I had not originally planned to buy the Into the Future expansion pack, because The Sims 4 was scheduled to come out in "early 2014" and I thought I would save my money. Why drop forty bucks on an expansion you're only going to play for a few months? But then they announced that Sims 4's release date was being pushed back to "fall 2014" so I figured what the heck.

Tamagotchi app: Tips, tricks, and help

A guide to the eight interactive buttons
Although it's not part of the Sims franchise, the new free Tamagotchi app definitely qualifies as a simulation game. It's also proving quite popular, and I personally have been surprised at how engrossing I find it to be. However, there are a lot of things I had to figure out myself for the hard way. The app comes with a manual and an FAQ, but neither of them are much help, if you ask me.
