Although players have been posting online about how they are grateful for the treat, some have expressed worry about the relatively high prices of these cosmetics, and what that might say about the game’s future.
My Sim, Ivy, was about to propose to her boyfriend when she got a call and found out that a close friend had died. Immediately, she fell into a sad funk. In an unmodded game, this feeling would last for two days unabated, and also dominate any other feeling she might have. But since I was playing with RoBurky’s …
Soon after launch, Apex Legends players started finding plush dinosaurs on the map. Now players have discovered that these dinosaurs lead to an easter egg, and it’s pretty tricky to get.
In Apex Legends, when you pick up ammo a teammate has dropped for you, or an item that they’ve pinged on the map, the game prompts you to press a button to say “thank you.” I press it every time, because it’s the nice thing to do.

Most of the time when you see a cosplayer, they’re wearing a wig. One thing you might not have noticed is how often those carefully styled wigs are straight hair, even on anime characters whose hair grows up and out like kinky or coily hair does. Cosplayer Shellanin is challenging that assumption with her own wig…

Loading up Apex Legends for the first time, I saw two black women as playable characters. It was a strange and arresting feeling to see them. I’m still trying to understand my feelings about it.
Tyra Banks is starting a theme park and I need to lie down.
Some got married. Some came out. Some simply got older and began looking differently at the world and the game series they loved. Devoted Kingdom Hearts fans waited 13 years for the big sequel to 2006’s Kingdom Hearts II, and in that time, their lives took some dramatic turns.
Art Sqool sucked me in early on. My second in-game assignment was to draw slowly and deliberately. It was a tall order for drawing with a mouse, but I gave it a fair shot.
