Hi, I'm Krista. I've been a fan of The Sims franchise since the early days. If I’m not playing The Sims I can usually be found writing, listening to music, sleeping or searching for unicorns!

    Hope they keep the wheelchair sim – it’s the only disabled sim in the entire series.

    Wasn’t The Urbz hated by everyone but like five people (myself included)? This is seriously the first I’ve seen it mentioned in any major way.

    i hope this does work out, my brother and i loved that game! 😀

    Such an underappreciated game, the DS version was a huge part of my childhood! Although I doubt EA would have an interest in rebooting a game that had poor sales, I’m just glad that it wasn’t forgotten by the Sims community.

    YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE? This without a doubt was my favorite sims game ever! I was a creator in sims 2, so never played other than to play-test, so when Urbz came out I jumped on it and had the time of my life playing this on gamecube. I would seriously love to have an updated reboot of this amazing, challenging and fun console game. I would love many aspects of it to be included into sims 4 as well.
