Fiona Lawson is returning home from a short vacation, and notices someone is moving into a house on her street. Or, is that her house? No, she'd know if someone had sold the house...wouldn't she?

The Sims 4 Vampires 😈 Video Game Review



         

Written by Tia


Happy Almost-Halloween to all the simmers out there! A spooky Sims 4 expansion pack is currently on sale for $15 (usually $20). If you're asking yourself, "Should I buy The Sims 4: Vampires?", this post is for you.

Unlike some of the Sims games in the past (The Sims: Makin' Magic and The Sims 3: Supernatural), where magic-related packs meant getting lots of different creatures, this one only gives you vampires. It's sort of like The Sims 2: Nightlife, minus the nightlife additions and just the vampires. So, in a lot of ways, it disappoints. But in an odd, very Vampire Diaries-esque manner, it's also interesting and fun. I'm torn.

All in Good Storytime 📚 Episode 44

All in Good Storytime is an interactive, bookish, book club podcast hosted by Alanna, Katya, and Tia. To join the club, make sure you're following us on Twitter to get updates on what book we're reading and to what chapter we are reading through (or what anime we're watching and what episode we are watching through), and listen to the podcast here or on iTunes (see link below) to join in on the discussion. And don't forget to read along!

In the 44th episode of All in Good Storytime, we watch episodes 14-19 of Revolutionary Girl Utena. In these episodes, we enter into the black rose arc and we are introduced to several new characters. We meet Anthy's older brother Akio Ohtori, Juri's old crush Shiori, and the boys of the black rose, Mamiya and Souji. We learn that Mamiya and Souji are on a mission to kill Anthy and take the power of Dios. To do this, they influence several vulnerable characters to attack the members of the student council, steal their swords, and duel Utena.

We question the dynamic between Anthy and Akio and suspect that they share something more sinister than a normal sibling relationship. We discuss how Micki isn't the only character stuck in the past with the revelation that Kozue is intentionally trying to gain his attention by any means because she misses him. We expand our suspicions of Anthy by suggesting that she intentionally brought Utena a red sweater to antagonize Cow-Nanami. We also address how shockingly malicious Shiori is and we express our concern that she now has the power to forcibly out Juri. Finally, we share our concern for sweet Wakaba that she may be drawn into the duels.

In two weeks, we will be watching episodes 20-23 of Revolutionary Girl Utena.
