Get The Sims 2: Ultimate collection for FREE!!!!
Simply go to “Redeem product code” in Origin and enter: I-LOVE-THE-SIMS
It is for 1 week only, so hurry!

its downloading right now! Is it just the base game or the whole thing?

In case anyone is interested…

i just tried it and it’s legit. ultimate collection is sims 2 + ALL expansions + ALL stuff packs. get it while it’s hot!!

It’s only for folks who already had a copy of The Sims 2. From what I gather it’s basically a ‘thanks for being loyal fans’ sendoff to TS2: a digital backup for people who had all the expansions, and the expansions for free to complete collections.

Oh, huh! I did once register TS2 on an older computer, but that’s long since gone. It let me redeem the code and it’s sitting in my library waiting to be downloaded, will it actually… do that or will it fuck up or try to make me pay for it?

Hmm. I couldn’t even find a place to redeem it, but then I’ve never owned it at all, so I’m betting it’s going by registration and not harddrive, so you should be fine. That was my experience with TS3, anyway: I was able to re-dl all my Store stuff after this computer’s first harddrive crashed.

Ohh, okay… I opened up the Origin program thing, and there’s an option to redeem a code. I’m not sure if it will actually download, but it’s sitting in my library with the other TS3 stuff I’m still downloading, so…

LOOK AT THAT I FAILED A SPOTCHECK… *redeems*

Stream? Sure! 5pm Pacific.

Dunno what playing. Maybe Sims 3, if I can get it running onstream without the computer melting. IDK, we’ll figure it out then!

"Hello friends!

My brain seems to have decided I need a little bit of a social media break and I realized this about three days after it started. It happens sometimes. I’m still around sporadically and will probably be streaming/going to streams, but, well, I haven’t been checking my dash and might not be checking it much for the next however little while. Send an ask if y’all need anything (email updates!).

Here is The Sims 3 theme song. I have heard it a lot lately.”

Anonymous asked: You seem to really not like DashCon. Is it, like, the worst-of-the-worst con? (I really don't know, the only ones I properly know of are ones like SDCC and NYCC)

DashCon is a first-year fandom convention for Tumblr users. It is happening this weekend and turning into possibly the largest convention kerfuffle anyone has ever seen.

The list continues but so far it’s only the con’s second day and it is quite literally the most dramatic, hysterically cringe-worthy convention debacle I have ever seen unfold.

Adding some updates as of 7/12 at 7:35 PM EST:

  • The game room consists of some tables, one TV, and one gaming console. No, really, that’s it.
  • DashCon proves they have possibly the worst PR team ever when addressing the WTNV cancellation. Instead of clearly explaining the situation, they say they “don’t want to get into it,” and then offer compensation for those who bought advanced seating tickets for the Night Vale show. What’s the compensation? An extra hour playing in the ball pit (which is really just a slowly-deflating children’s pool with some balls in it). Oh, and if there’s room, you may get one of the first-come-first-serve spots at the Time Crash concert happening tonight. Huzzah!
  • Most panels are completely disorganized. The “Name That Anime” panel was even handing out hotel mints as prizes for correctly answering questions like “what’s the anime where they fight with clothes!!!”
  • This still needs verification, but supposedly there are minors being let into the 18+ panels (like “BDSM 101”), which DashCon could easily get sued for allowing. Not that they have the money for it.
  • It’s been pointed out that as a Marriott hotel, the Renaissance would have required them to submit their full reservation payment 5 days in advance of the event. Therefore it’s very, very likely that the “$17,000 fundraising” was a huge scam. Because DashCon would’ve had to pay that money 5 days before this weekend or the event wouldn’t even be happening in the first place.
  • Furthermore, someone attempted to debunk the letter that DashCon posted to prove that the hotel asked for money. Not all their points are valid (i.e. “RE:” is commonly used for “Regarding”, not just in response to previous communication, and idk but this dude doesn’t strike me as an expert on internal Marriott stationary), but frankly the letter looks sketchy if only because 17000% 99% of it is whited out. Is it real? Is it fake? We just don’t know.
  • There has been no confirmation that the money donated in cash and via PayPal last night ever made it to the hotel (if that was indeed where it was intended to go).
  • People are demanding full or at least partial refunds. Needs verification, but purportedly DashCon has a list at the con where you can sign your name and the amount you donated to be refunded later. Which sounds like a totally effective and not at all easily-abused system.
  • Attendees are either in denial saying this is the best con ever or they’re crying and having panic attacks. Welcome to Tumblr.

And as a bonus: DashCon originally ran an IndieGoGo campaign last year to raise $5,000 to start their convention. They raised $4,000. The campaign ended in April 2013 and rewards have still not been sent out (which consisted of tea bags, a couple business cards with your Tumblr URL on them, and if you donated $500+, some knick-knacks from Etsy).

The full story for those wondering what the hell is happening.
