Watch this interview, from VG247 where Sim Guru Ninja talks about the latest facts surrounding the game like inclusiveness (skin tone issue, disabilities etc), the New Game Pack leak and also Sims 5
In the video above, at 10 minutes Sim Guru Ninja starts talking about inclusivity, and the fact that they want to implement changes into the game to make it more inclusive (specially considering the skin tone issue which is in the spotlight currently) and mentions that it's hard to implement improvements from a technical standpoint.
Then, at 11 minutes, they talk about the next game pack leak and, funny enough, Simguru Ninja says he did not "see any speculation" 😂 and that he does not know anything about it.
At 14:30 he teases that he can't wait until everybody knows everything (about the future of The Sims 4, which should have interesting surprises to come, I guess?).
Around 16 minutes he admits that each version of the game (Sims 1, Sims 2, Sims 3 and Sims 4) do certain things better than the others, which is something nice for them to finally admit. 😇
Then he says that they are not leaving essential parts of the game for the modders to fix, and that they take the game development seriously and want to work out the important issues.
At 17 minutes he admits that it saddens him we can't have mods on console (yet)... 😉
Then he mentions that the gallery wasn't available to console users in the past, but it was implemented later, maybe they could add mods capabilities to consoles too, in the future?
Finally, at 18 minutes, they start talking about The Sims 5 but, then again, he does not seem to be allowed to share ANY information...
To be honest, in my opinion, sadly, they shared NO useful information at all. No news, just a PR thing to keep their product in the spotlight, whenever a question related to anything we actually want to know about was thrown at him, he was not allowed to actually answer to it, so the interview was more about excusing the company for not fixing what needs to be fixed, to say that they "are an inclusiveness friendly brand" and talk about their silly TV Show. No hate here, but I am not a fan of reality TV or competitions at all, just not my cup of tea, sorry.
Anyway, since a few of you might want to know, that's the gist. You can watch the video above or save yourself those 26 minutes to do something else like having some tea with cookies, maybe? I have spent that half hour of my life watching the interview, so you don't have to!
