Ships Ahoy - The Sims 3 Island Paradise

EA announces the release of The Sims 3 Island Paradise in North America for Windows and OS X, saying the latest expansion for their lifestyle simulation is available in stores and via Origin. In spite of all the sequels and add-ons, this carries the usual promise of new experiences, as it offers the chance to live on a houseboat, snorkel and scuba dive, and even own a resort:

Heh yeah I'll be Kevin Costner in that terrible sea movie. And nah, only a few of the islands have been decreasing a bit and the rest have actually been increasing in size they're not going anywhere anytime soon unless something drastic happens. And whilst the South Pacific would be my first pick, I'll happily cruise the Caribbean drinking rum instead.

You mean on those islands that will be underwater in 50 years? ^^

Hmm, Hawaii has an elevation of 4200m. If THAT goes underwater, humanity is pretty fucked.

OF course, if Cutter is living on a boat, I guess it doesn't matter how high the sea level rises. He'll just rise along with it.

*makes mental note to buy boat*

A sim like this - not the Sims though - would appeal greatly t me if done right. That's my dream, living on my boat in the South Pacific, or at least the Caribbean.

If they ever put the complete sims 3 package (and I mean EVERYTHING) and sold it for $100, I'd probably get it. But no freaking way am I paying multi hundreds for it.

Not as good as Hello Kitty Island Adventures.
