Keep up-to-date with all the latest video game releases! For this week, we preview The Sims 3, The Munchables, and Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter!

The Sims 3

After a delay a few months ago, The Sims 3 is finally here. The biggest update this time is the ability to go anywhere in your neighborhood with your sims without load times, which fans of the series will know is pretty amazing. According to your choices in the options screen, you can either have the sims you aren't controlling automatically grow up, get jobs, and whatever else, or they can stay unchanged like they were in the old games. The Create-A-Sim mode has also been updated, and (in my favorite change) sims' careers now branch out instead of necessarily going down the same promotion path every time. If The Sims 1 and 2 were any indication, this game will be crazy addictive.

The Munchables

The Munchables is a cute food-based puzzle-platformer, which casts you as either Munchie or Chomper as you take on Don Onion and his evil vegetable empire. A bit like Katamari Damacy, you have to eat small enemies to grow bigger so you can eat bigger enemies, all the way up to the boss, who usually has an extra trick up his sleeve. It's actually out now, in a bit of a stealth release, so if you crave the cute, it's already here!

Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter

Coming this October, we get the next Drawn to Life game, and it's called "The Next Chapter". This one will be coming out for both the Wii and the DS (Yes!) and it includes a new "action drawing" feature that allows you to draw into the level you're playing, allowing you to build new platforms to jump on and things like that. If you didn't play the original DS Drawn to Life, you play a fairly normal platformer game, but with a hero and weapons that you create, drawing them with your stylus on the screen before you play. This game promises to up the gameplay and your abilities to create your own objects.

Fuel Update

Last week, we previewed Fuel, an offroad driving game. Since then, the game has been delayed a week to release on June 2nd. However, the game also officially earned the Guinness World Record for biggest game environment ever! You can go off-roading on 5,560 square miles of virtual territory! That's mind blowing!

    I've played the second and the third and I enjoy playing it. I'm going to get the fourth for sure and I can't wait to see the custom content.

She built our parents houses on sims, we both made sims of ourselves and I play the household (because I prefer playing the sims to making sims/building houses). I'm definitely getting sims 4!
