The Sims 4 content patch adds careers, cheats and Christmas

CareersBlog 1

Sims 4′s content patches sometimes seem like they’re conceived by a random noun generator. Pools! Ghosts! Business! Christmas! Gnomes! It’s business and Christmas for this latest update, which adds four new career paths, accrued time off, maternity and/or paternity leave, and a free, unlockable Holiday Celebration Pack.

The new career paths are spread across business and athletic career types. Sporty Sims can pick between Hall of Famer and Mr. or Ms. Solar System, while those with financial aspirations can become an Angel Investor or Business Tycoon.

Over on the festive side, EA has provided the following instructions for unlocking the Holiday Celebration Pack:

  • The Holiday Celebration Pack can be unlocked by logging into Origin and launching The Sims 4.
  • Banners within the main menu of The Sims 4 and in The Gallery will show the option to redeem the “Holiday Celebration Pack”.
  • Click on the respective banner to surface an in-game pop up that will place the Holiday Celebration Pack in your shopping cart.
  • No payment information will be required to check out.
  • You will then be directed to an order confirmation page. Click the “Close” button.
  • After closing, you will receive a notification that your content is preparing for download. Click the “OK” button.
  • Once the download is complete, a notification will inform you that the Holiday Celebration Pack has been successfully installed.
  • You will need to restart The Sims 4 in order to see content from the Holiday Celebration Pack in your game.

Do all that you’ll get a bunch of festive objects and some Christmas jumpers.

Finally, new cheats have been added. One, seemingly, lets you set any object as your Sim’s head. Because that might be a thing you want to do for some reason.

You can see a full list of added features and accompanying fixes over at the The Sims 4′s updates page.

Dying Light gameplay: max settings at 1440p on LPC Jr.

We have a preview build of Dying Light, Techland’s next zombie game, and while we’ve been asked not to spoil certain story bits, we can do just about anything else we want with it. So here I am playing it at 1440p on the LPC Jr., naturally.

Techland is the studio responsible for Dead Island—not a great game, but not a terrible one by any means. So far, Dying Light is better. It’s also about zombies and melee weapons, but it diverges in ways I like: a less-arcadey tone, a better-looking world with greater fidelity, and a focus on agile movement over rooftops. Without having upgraded my combat skill tree, whacking undead heads feels far less important than moving fluidly around them—but I suppose I could go the bashing route if I preferred it. There’s also crafting and all the gadgets that come with that to consider, but for now I’ve just wandered through an early mission to get a sense of how it feels.

As for the state of the PC version, it seems pretty good at the moment. I couldn’t maintain a stable 60 fps at 1440p and max settings, though it is a good-looking game (even if its open world is a bit drab). I didn’t experience any stuttering or other problems. I am disappointed that the current graphics options menu doesn’t include an FOV slider or the option to turn off individual post-processing effects, such as motion blur. Maybe if I close my eyes and wish hard enough, a few more staples will be introduced before Dying Light releases on January 27th in North America and January 30th in Europe. Or maybe we’ll just dig into a config file and hope for the best.

Can you play Minecraft on a Chromebook?

We are planning on getting a Chromebook for my son for Christmas. Besides schoolwork, he wants to be able to get Minecraft and be able to play it on his new laptop. Does a Chromebook have enough storage (or speed?) to handle Minecraft? If not, is there a certain size laptop I should look for? Thanks. —Pat

The good news is that you can play the mobile version of Minecraft on a Kindle Fire, so yep, I’m sure your average Chromebook is powerful enough. The bad news is that power isn’t the problem. Chromebooks run Chrome OS, and there’s no Chrome version of Minecraft—it’s supported on Windows, OS X, Linux, iOS, and Android. That’s going to make it tricky.

Chrome OS was designed with the idea that we spend most of our time on the web, running web apps like Google Docs, watching videos on YouTube, and all that. So let’s forget about storing pretty much anything locally, it says: Let’s just make the web browser the OS. That said, Chromebooks generally have 8GB or more of solid state storage, which is more than enough for Minecraft. But Minecraft is a Java application, which Chrome OS has no interest in running.

That doesn’t mean it’s impossible. You can install a Linux distro, such as Ubuntu, on a Chromebook, and run Minecraft with that. But, as Mojang explains, that sort of defeats the purpose of a Chromebook. They’re supposed to be easy to use, and now you’re sneaking into developer mode to undo all that simplicity.

Unless you and your son want to spend Christmas day trying to figure out Linux, it’d make much more sense to get a Windows 8 tablet/laptop. The Wirecutter recommends the ~$ 580 Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 2 14 as a budget laptop, and that will certainly run Minecraft just fine. Plus, it’ll be powerful enough to play a lot of other games (though certainly not all) if he ever wants to branch out from Minecraft.

If you’re set on getting something in the $ 200-$ 300 Chromebook range, this ASUS 15.6-Inch will work—I haven’t tested this particular model, so I can’t vouch for its quality, but I am confident it will run Minecraft (just not gloriously). For reference, here are Mojang’s minimum requirements:

  • CPU: Intel Pentium D or AMD Athlon 64 (K8) 2.6 GHz
  • RAM: 2GB
  • GPU (Integrated): Intel HD Graphics or AMD (formerly ATI) Radeon HD Graphics with OpenGL 2.1

Alternatively, you could make your son a PC Gamer fan for life by telling him I recommended the MSI GE60-033 Apache, our favorite budget gaming laptop, which will run you $ 1250. I mean, the more expensive the laptop, the better his schoolwork will be, right? Makes sense to me.

The Best Free Games of the Week

Birdsong2

There are some meaty games to sink your teeth into this week, including one that’s literally about pâté. We have Ludum Dare 31 to thank for that and for at least one other game this week, so, you know, thanks Ludum Dare, you’re alright. Flappy birds, sentient cubes, and widdling children are also things to expect—this is a Saturday, after all.

Orion by Diego F. Goberna

Orion

Orion is essentially the very first part of a super-detailed space sim—it’s only lacking, er, the entire rest of it. (Not that the rest of it was ever planned: this is a quick, and very accomplished, jam game.) In modelling only a tiny part of a simulation rather than the whole kaboodle, Diego F. Goberna has inadvertently given birth the Space Shuttle Cockpit Sim, and this is the best one of those I’ve ever played.

As a pilot, your job is to find and hit switches as the voice tells you to hit switches, casting your mouse around in an increasingly urgent tizzy. It’s a wonderfully polished and immersive game of switch-flipping, and in another world it eventually blossoms into a full space sim: into a pixel art version of, I don’t know, X3. I’d quite like to live in that world—unless Goberna fancies making it in this one? No rush.

birdsong by Daniel Linssen

Birdsong

Daniel Linssen has done it again—and by ‘it’ I mean he’s made another scrumptious free game. Birdsong is an extraordinary, Metroidvania-y platformer that manages to display its entire, fairly huge map all at once. How? Well, you can tell by the image, but the game enlarges (bulges, really) the part of the level you’re in, as the rest slinks into the background. It’s a fantastic effect, and a great way to render a whole level while letting the player see what the Hell is going on.

The platformer underneath is solid, quite challenging, and more than a little cute. Checkpoints are activated by dropping branches into nests, rewarding exploration with more locations to respawn from. As you comb the skyscape, your birdy hero will grow in acrobatic power, letting them reach higher and further platforms, and greater challenges.

Riff Raft by Rusty Moyher, Sara Gross, Damien Di Fede, Ken Kopecky

Riff Raft

A one or two-player action game about being a boy scout, which involves a lot more urine, booze and collapsing rafts than the film Moonrise Kingdom led me to believe. As jerks pelt you with fire arrows, and jerk oncoming rocks attempt to batter your raft, you have to, well, survive them, grabbing as many bottles o’ booze and survivors as you’re able along the way. Fires can be put out by peeing on them, an approach that incidentally gets you sacked from your local fire department.

I couldn’t try out the multiplayer, but Riff Raft supports controllers if you’d like to play the game with a friend. (Or an enemy. Or your cat.)

Ultimate Pâté by Marine Desmolin and Clément Duquesne

Ultimate Pate

Ultimate Pâté is a silly name for such a technically accomplished game, and one that’s only a few notches below the beautiful Proteus. It’s a walking sim of sorts, and also a sort of hunting thing—the game ends when you shoot five things until they’re dead. These dead things are then turned into a kind of pâté depending on what you shot: another silly touch that suggests a lack of confidence in the artistry present elsewhere. This is one of the few FPSs that works with just the cursor keys, with the view adjusted smartly and automatically as you tramp up hills and down slopes. The wooded area the game takes place in is deliberately indistinct, but nevertheless fairly lovely to look at: the impressive lighting system, and some immersive sound design, lend a lot of weight to those chunky, blown-up pixels.

cubrick by acatalept

Cubrick

I wasn’t expecting to find cubrick so emotional an experience, but there’s something oddly beautiful about this abstract cube puzzler that separates it from most puzzle games I’ve played. That’s perhaps a strange thing to say about a game without a story or even a real character, but cubrick’s ambient piano soundtrack gels perfectly with its absorbing, revolving action, and that got to me somehow. You’re trying to turn all the coloured tiles see-through, to activate switches and reach the end of each section, and you do this by rolling onto the dark sides of cubes, turning the world on its head before sauntering over those tiles to make them inert.

I went into this one blind, so I wasn’t aware until I’d stopped playing that you could toggle the perspective, zoom, rotate the camera and create platforms and clones, and that almost seems like too much power to put in the player’s hands. I guess that makes this prototype more of a sandboxy toy type thing than a rigorous puzzle game – but whichever way you choose to play it, I expect you’ll find something elegent and serene, like I did. According to the itch.io page, cubrick hasn’t been updated since February this year, so I hope it’s still being worked on in some capacity.

acatalept’s Parasomnia, and the Oculus Rift-compatible singmetosleep, look pretty nifty as well.
