PopBoxZA Review: The Sims 4, Get Famous

Reviewed by on

Lights! Camera! Sims! Say hello to Del Sol Valley and stardom as your Sims can finally set off on the path to attaining fame….or infamy.

Get Famous is the latest expansion pack to join the burgeoning collection of the Sims 4 universe. Complete with snooty stars (we’re looking at you Judith Ward), the new Sims neighbourbood, known as Del Sol Valley, sports a replica of downtown Los Angeles and the famed Hollywood Hills.

sims3.jpgWhile the new neighbourhood adds a lot to the game and is simply gorgeous it is rather small and limited in terms of what you can interact with. For one, it would have been amazing to explore downtown LA…err Del Sol Valley.

The new acting career is an interactive one which means you get to go to the studio/set with your budding actor/actress. Your Sim will start off as a complete unknown and attempting to ace auditions which lead to starring in lowly TV commercials. The acting career is properly fleshed out as your Sim tries to first gain notoriety in TV ads before progressing to the silver screen and bigger things. Hair and make-up and smoozing with your co-stars and director is as important as knowing your lines in this career.

Sims05It’s not all about being in front of the camera either as this expansion pack also introduces media production skill which allows your Sim to become an “influencer”. A new computer set-up complete with camera and lights allows recorded videos to be edited before being uploaded and, hopefully, attaining internet fame or at least a handful of followeres. But you’ve got to stay on point though by researching trends and playing to your audience/follower’s interest.

A perk tree, specially focused on fame, allows you to move up the ranks and even develop new quirks such as a phobia of touching or becoming sad from not admiring “your fine self” in the mirror enough. There are also a few new aspirations including the ambition to become world famous or to be a master actor/actress. These aspirations automatically attribute specific traits to your Sims too such as the muser.

Screen Shot 2018-11-26 at 18.19.06There is also a ton of new build and buy mode objects and as well as new clothes, hairstyles, and accessories in create-a-sim. Some of the additions, read a rainbow-inspired hairdo, are way over the top. But it’s showbiz and we would expect nothing less.

What stands out most in the build and buy mode are the sets. From post-apocalyptic streets, to pirate ships, to street scenes, to giant green screens Get Famous has just about covered every genre.

Get Famous really does go above and beyond in delivering a more complete life experience for your Sims than ever before. This is easily the best expansion pack that the Sims team has produced and you are likely to sink many hours into exhausting it’s many avenues towards fame.

The first ever Tetris game I bought with my own money - worth every cent (even at full price :))

I have spent hours already trying to get the top rank and having a blast - you'll never be able to go back to a regular tetris game (unless of course you want to play in silence hehe).

Great steelbook, not so great game

Reviewed by on

In a nutshell, Marvel vs Capcom Infinite is simply inferior to Marvel vs Capcom 3 that came before it. Little content and no X-men characters are just some of the problems Infinite has. The only reason this gets 4 stars instead of 3 is because the steelbook is quite nice.

The glitchy straw to break the glitchy camel's back....

Reviewed by on

Just as a heads up, I picked up this game from another retailer and not from Raru. I love Raru and will always support Raru where I can. You guys rock!

What doesn't rock though is how Bethesda and Todd thought they could shove this empty, glitchy voide of a world as a AAA game and not have a "EARLY ACCESS" slapped on it. Seriously in the few days it came out I had to probably download over 100GB worth of data just so that the game can still run like a complete pile of garbage. Also the near non-existence of NPCs means that it looks like Bethesda and Todd was probably expecting the players to make their game for them and still make money of it.

Just to end it here: This buggy broken game engine, is the same game engine that the future Elder Scrolls 6 and Starfield will use as well. Todd himself already confirmed this. And if that's the case I will never buy another Bethesda title that I know uses this engine ever again.

Absolutely beautiful

Reviewed by on

Let's Go Eevee is a dream to play. Traversing all the locales from the original Pokémon Yellow game brings up great feelings of nostalgia, even for one like myself who was a part of the original 90s hype. Many of the controversial changes, like having the PC Box accessible at any time from your bag; or not having random encounters with Pokémon, and even not having to battle said encounters, have actually been good quality of life improvements. I'd actually be disappointed if these features were removed from the next entries in the series.

Connection with Pokémon GO is seamless on iOS devices, but can be slow on Android. Transferring Pokémon to Let's Go from Go allows you to catch Meltan, and hopefully evolve it into Meltmetal, a taxing task that requires 400 candies.

The Poké Ball Plus is a dream to use. The HD Rumble is actually more intense than a standard Joy-Con, so the immersion was bumped up a notch. When you catch a Pokémon, its color is shown by the LEDs around the control stick (e.g. yellow when you catch Pikachu or blue when you catch a Zubat). Functionality in Pokémon Go is great, but it seems like there is no way of using Great or Ultra balls, just like the Pokémon Go Plus, which is a slight letdown.

Fun and more challenging than you would think

Reviewed by on

I have always loved Bomberman games and this is good, a lot of fun and very pretty graphics. It can be quite challenging so if you think it looks like a great game for kids it can be a bit more difficult than you would expect at times.

Different gameplay modes so you can get a lot out of it in terms of replay value and also offers online multiplayer. All round really enjoying it and will keep me busy for a while at a decent price.

Played the original games as a kid and it was my absolute favourite, now the remaster is my absolute favourite. It has the same characters, objects, sound effects and gameplay we all know and love with far better graphics. The only issue I've encountered was the controls for flying and climbing is a bit meh but with enough practice, you'll be fine. Definitely worth the buy.

Harry remastered!

Reviewed by on

I played both these titles on the xbox360 and I really adored it. I am very sure the remaster would've worked out all the kinks and catch that Lego colour pop on the new gens as never before!
Also I have to admit the price Raru has for the bundled nextgen video games is extremely, utterly cheap and as far as I know the only website who stocks the xbox one version as the others usually have only the PS4 version only of the game, so this was an instant buy.

Thanks guys cant wait to go back to Hogwarts!
