Gotta Catch 'Em All

Hey everyone! Hope that you've all been well. These past few weeks have been kind of crazy as I finished my move from California to Washington. Thankfully all my new furniture is assembled and I've finished unpacking everything that I need to record and stream! On YouTube I have started two new series and resumed Get Together. First is a let's play of the Dine Out game pack and second is a let's play of the Kids Room stuff pack.

Dine Out is something that I've wanted for AGES so I've been having a blast finally running my own restaurant. Though to be honest I wish you could also work as a waiter, chef, or host. But restaurant management is a blast and I love how many options we can customize from the menus to the outfits that the staff and patrons wear. This let's play also features the Papaya family again which I haven't played with since Outdoor Retreat so it's been a blast revisiting the past.

Normally I don't do let's plays for stuff packs. But wow the Kids Room stuff pack is incredible and in a way it feels like a mini-game pack. There is the new puppet show object that allows children to put on a variety of performances. Then there is my new favorite object called the Voidcritter Battle Station. Your Sim children can now go around and collect cards of Voidcritters which are basically Pokemon. They can then go to the battle station to challenge other Sims to battle with their cards.

I've been getting really into the let's play and I was able to include the community into the series! I selected 40 children that you all submitted to be included into the let's play to represent the different elements of the Voidcritters. I also built a theme park specifically for this let's play and it's been such a blast. This stuff pack has sparked my imagination more so than any other pack and I honestly never expected to have this much fun with this life stage in The Sims 4.

Here's some pictures of the Voidcritter Theme Park that I made:

You can see the start of Dine Out and Kids Room here:

The Sims 4 Get Together series has resumed as well and some pretty major changes are starting to happen in that let's play. I haven't forgotten about my other YouTube channels TheArcadeYT and Andrew1UP. I have just been so busy playing catch up with content for The Sims 4 but I do plan to record more videos of Fallout 4 and the Let's Talk series in the very near future.

Thank you everyone that has been leaving wonderful suggestions in all the videos and a big thank you to everyone who submitted kids for the Kids Room series!

That's all for now and I'll see you all next time! 

Rambles & Reflections

Recently I got The Urbz to work with my recording software so I'll be starting up a Let's Play of it soon over at! It's been years since I've played the game and I honestly don't remember much about it so it's going to be a blast playing it again! For those of you that are familiar with the game please feel free to provide me with any tips you have.

The holidays and New Year's Eve both passed by since my last blog post, I hope you all had a lot of fun celebrations! My family celebrates Christmas and this year was really laid-back and the smallest Christmas we ever had. Most of our family has become rather distant in the most recent years so it was oddly quiet.

I ordered myself a Figma anime figure of the protagonist from Persona 4 as a gift to myself. So now my Teddie figure will have some company!

New Year's Eve was okay, I got a $5 Little Caesars Pizza that I quickly regretted and ended up celebrating with some of my friends on Twitch. I mainly hung out in Aquamatey's stream where he was singing all night in Rockband 4!

In the past couple of weeks I have also uploaded a bunch of videos on YouTube including Get to Work, Get Together, Speed Builds, Let's Talks, and Fallout 4 parts. You can find all these new videos on AndrewArcade, Andrew1UP, and TheArcadeYT.

I also recorded this crazy long machinima (movie using The Sims) for my Get Together Let's Play and it was so much fun to do! It was really well received and that made me incredibly happy. The Let's Play for Get Together is becoming one of my favorites, it's the most story-driven series that I've done and I'm getting that same rush of excitement of when I first made videos of The Sims 3 back on HeadbuttArcade.

Anyways, hope you're all having a great start to your new year! ♥

New Beginnings

Hey everyone!

I've been pretty busy on YouTube lately and have uploaded about 15 videos in the past week. Within those uploads I've started a couple of new series as well! The most obvious one would be the Let's Play of Get Together which has been a blast to play with so far. I'm loving the social aspects of the expansion pack and it's added so much to everyday gameplay.

It's easily becoming one of my favorite expansion packs. The club system is so detailed and there's endless opportunities there. I hope that The Sims team continues to support the club system for future expansion packs because it's such a robust system and deserves to have continued support throughout the series.

Here is the first part of my Get Together Let's Play:

I've also started to do speed builds on YouTube! It's been a common request for years now, and I have finally decided to give it a shot. I've been having a surprising amount of fun with speed builds. They are definitely way more time consuming and they require a lot of patience and endurance that I don't always have. But whenever I can muster up the energy for building I will definitely take advantage and do my best to keep these speed builds consistent. 

Here is the tudor house that I made:

Here is a club & pub that I created as well:

Then on my other gaming channel The Arcade I've continued my Let's Play of Fallout 4 and it's been so much fun! I'm getting near to the end of the main story and then I'll be able to explore the commonwealth wherever I please. I'm so thankful for the group of people that have been watching and commenting on my Fallout 4 videos, it's a really wonderful and close community that has started on The Arcade gaming channel and it's been awesome discussing the game with everyone there. 

I also have a complete Let's Play of The Park and Undertale on The Arcade

I also uploaded a video yesterday on my other YouTube channel Andrew1UP where I talk about my future plans for my YouTube channels, seeing as how a couple of my Let's Plays are coming close to an end. Because of that it will allow me to start up a few new Let's Plays!

I'm planning on doing a Let's Play of The Urbz which was a spin-off of The Sims. The Get Together expansion pack has me in the mood to play The Urbz again since there are a few similarities between them.

Also towards the end of January the game Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster is coming out and I plan to do a blind Let's Play of that too. Then in February is when I return to school so I'll probably have to adjust how frequently I upload around that time. 

Anyways, I hope that you've all been well and I'm very excited to continue forward with all of these brand new projects!

Get Together

I was lucky enough to attend the sponsored Get Together event for The Sims 4 at EA Redwood Shores. While I was there I was able to talk with SimGurus, developers, producers, and other dedicated fans of The Sims franchise. While I was there I had the chance to take exclusive snapshots and video for you all! Below is my 40 minute overview of the expansion.

Here is the album of screenshots I took of the expansion pack:
