The Sims 4 day one patch is weird

2 min read

Don t fear the reaper

Day one patches are nothing new. Things turn up in games that shouldn’t be there, or developers were still busy adding and changing things even after the game discs were shipped. However, The Sims 4 is promising weirder stories, and their patch fits with the new theme.

According to the patch notes, there were two major problems: babies were hibernating within household inventories, causing them to break the game, or even multiply. Meanwhile, EA is also breaking hearts:

Fixed several issues with Sims attempting to go on dates with the Reaper, resulting in non-responsive game states.The Reaper still loves ya baby, he is just too busy to go on a date with every lovelorn Sim that vies for his attention.

Woah! How did that make it through testing? If the Grim Reaper shows up, I’m sure most Sims will be drawn to him. He’s tall, dark and handsome, a bit mysterious and very powerful. Who can resist his call.

Other strange things are popping up on the internet. People were complaining that they can’t adopt a baby when they pick up the phone, but get with the times – these things are all done online now. It’s a mad mad world in The Sims 4 and based on the questions and answers I’m seeing floating around, it’s even weirder than we imagined.

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let’s get on with it!

  • Poor Darryn! lol

  • Weanerdog

    Dear Ladies, dating the Reaper maybe not as fun as you thought. Him being all bone is not what you think.

    • Sk3tz0

      New Ages girls, They dont eat meat but they sure like the bone…

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        I see what you did there!

  • Hammersteyn

    Can men date Death? Imagine how awkward discussions about “bones” would be O_o

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    How did it make it through testing you ask? Because the game HAS to be released by a specific date, bugs be damned. EA *hug*

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Come on baby, don’t date the reaper.

  • Anonymous

    You need more cowbell if you want to date the reaper.

    Zoe forgot the Sim ladies can not resist a man with a big scythe.

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    Oh dear… it’s a mess?

  • Lord Darque

    No review copies until launch. What does that say to everyone?

  • Spaffy

    EA releasing another BETA?
    Didn’t see that one coming.

  • Michael

    People who play the sims 4 are weird :p

  • Mossel
