6 pathetic excuses or justify your existence

What, Haru has been cooking something other than mackerel? Is that even possible, or did the alien who got Rin pregnant do something to Haru, too? Of course, I don't think they have mackerel in Sims 3. They have tons of other fish to catch, but I don't remember mackerel... Poor Haru, living in a world without mackerel. (Speaking of Haru, do you have Island Paradise? I'd bet he'd love becoming a merman!)

And now I kinda want to make Firefighter!Mako, but I'm on a Sims 2 kick at the moment that I don't want to stop.

I know, there's no mackerel! Once his skill was high enough he did start making fish and chips and sushi with all the fish he's been catching. I do have Island Paradise, so maybe we'll make a merman out of him yet.

I played the heck out of Sims 2 back in the day. There are a lot of things I like about 3, but there were some really good things in 2 that I miss. (2 was where you could play piano or drums, too, right? I hate that it's just guitar now.)

Yes, Merman Haru has to happen! (Although playing merpeople is a bit of a pain. They're always needing to go swim in the ocean...but again, Haru certainly wouldn't mind that!)

Sims 3 has drums and piano, too, although it wasn't in the base game. They came with one of the expansions...Late Night, I think? *looks up* Yeah, it was Late Night. You can even form a band and play gigs (that would be perfect for the K-ON girls), although I never really found out how that worked. The one band I did form never got any offers for gigs. Sims 3 doesn't have a violin, though, which sucks. I loved the violin from 2! (I think there may be one for sale at the Store, though.)

But, yeah, there are plus and minuses to both games. I love them both, but I've been playing 3 pretty much exclusively for the past couple of years, so it's kinda nice to go back to 2 for a change and fall in love all over again. Plus, there's a LOT less lagging and freezing in 2, which is the main thing I dislike about 3.

Aha, I don't have Late Night. That explains it.

Yeah, 3 is really laggy and buggy. I've tried doing the dive sites, but it keeps sending me back up to land. I read the forums and saw different solutions people tried, but honestly, you shouldn't have to work around stuff that the expansion was designed to do. I don't know how they put these out with so many problems. That's one reason I'm in no hurry to get 4.
