So... Stella was looking at some promotional videos from The Sims 3, and I had read a brief review of the new Prima Game Guide, and together, they kind of whetted our appetites. So I caved and we've ordered the game.
We had considered ordering two copies, so we could play simultaneously, but we're not even sure how well our computers will handle the game, plus we usually play at different times, so we went with one copy for now.
I also ordered the English Prima Guide, though they don't have it in stock right now.
Stella said that if the game is good, we're going to sell our Sims 2 stuff while they still fetch decent prices, which is a bit :'(... we shall have to see. And whether I even play the old game at all. (I remember playing Sims 1 once after having Sims 2 for a while... it really wasn't what I had remembered, and after that I had no more qualms selling our old discs :D)
Ah well. We shall see.
