E3 2019: EA, The Sims, and Pride

Double Jump Kris MiiHappy Monday everyone!

June is crazy busy for us, with weekends filled with social obligations and the weekdays filled with day jobs. Naps are something I miss dearly from my childhood days, haha! We’ve been doing our best to squeeze in some E3 time this week amid all of the ruckus.

So. It’s E3 week. How’s everyone been doing keeping up with it?

Honestly, with how busy Rachel and I have been this month, E3 was a bit of an afterthought. Granted, we were able to catch up with what has gone on over the weekend, finding some of the news to be pretty good and a few of the presentations to be awesome (Keanu Reeves and Ikumi Nakamura, anyone?). One of the better parts of being behind on the live coverage is that we can fast forward to the parts that we actually care about, haha!

Case in point was during EA’s conference. While the glimpses of the other games looked wonderful, Rachel and I were really only interested in the Sims 4 news. The trailer for Island Living looked like tons of fun and we’re looking forward to getting it and exploring all that it has to offer for the sims. It makes me wonder if Rachel, on her solo Twitch streams, will move her little family for her 100 Baby Challenge to the islands?

I was also personally interested in and pleased at the idea of the partnership the sims franchise has with It Gets Better, a nonprofit organization that has a mission to empower and lift LGBTQ+ around the world. Being inclusive of all sexualities was always something I appreciated about the sims franchise — even before I discovered my own asexuality — and hearing that they are continuing to further their involvement for Pride Month makes me feel warm and fuzzy.

We’re looking forward to catching up with the rest of the shows and conferences, particularly Nintendo’s direct. We’re on the hunt for more unique games rather than the similar games filled with guns that we’ve seen lately.
