Fashion And Gaming Collide Again In The Sims

Do you worry that your Sims aren't stylish enough? Well, EA has teamed up with Diesel to create The Sims 3 Diesel Stuff Pack, which will include over three dozen clothing items and over a dozen furniture items from Diesel's 2012 Spring/Summer collection.

"We always look to create content in stuff packs for The Sims that give our players cool items that play into their inherent creativity and give them new tools to play with life," said Jennifer Lane, Producer within The Sims Studio. "Diesel's brand of rock-and-roll meets refined denim fashion style speaks to our fans' love of clothing and home furnishings. What is particularly exciting is you can see the latest fashions in the Diesel stores, wear them in real life and bring them into the virtual world of The Sims to enrich your Sims' lives and modernize their neighborhood."

The thing is, the pack is $19.99, and just includes clothing and furniture. To me, that just kind of reinforces how superficial fashion can be. Do you really need your Sims to be wearing trendy Diesel clothes? (Heck, I'm so out of the fashion loop I don't even know if Diesel is even trendy!)

Personally, I think the Final Fantasy characters modeling Prada was a cooler mix of fashion and games!

Diesel is trendy still. It's a bit more mainstream, so it's trendier to wear some of the newer less-known brands, but if you wear Diesel you're pretty good fashion-wise.

As far as paying $19.99 for the clothes, you'd have to be extremely addicted to Sims 3 to do that. Although I might dish out that much for clothes in The Secret World :-X

I pick up all EPs and SPs for the Sims, but I gotta say, this Stuff Pack (and the projected "Occasions" Expansion Pack) aren't really doing it for me. A bit too much style and a lot too little substance.

I love the new interactions and build items that come with the new games, but I'm really thinking about passing on these. Between the constant assumption that everyone in Sims World should be on Facebook and the regular game-destroying bugs that come packaged in each EP, I'm not very pleased with EA's management.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
