Gold: Sims Makin' Magic

EA Games sends news that The Sims Makin' Magic Expansion Pack has gone gold and is scheduled for release on October 28. Here's a bit on the quirky gameplay it will offer: "At home, use suburban magic to transform everyday objects into helpful minions, hypnotize your friends, or turn that pesky neighbor into a frog. Unlock mystical recipes one by one in the family spellbook, and mix individual ingredients to create dozens of original incantations. Cast spells to take care of the needs of your Sims, keep tidy the house, cook meals, and meddle with relationships. But be careful, because every spell has a unique backfire, if your Sims lack that magic something. Hair-raising consequences in the game include toad plagues, snakes, and lightning strikes."
