I have wanted to play this game for as long as I have had my PSP and I finally bought it today via digital download on the PlayStation Store directly on the PSP. I love how you can just download games right onto your game system lol. I mean, I couldn’t do that with my Atari 2600 back when I was a kid, or my Sega Game Gear and Nintendo Game Boy when I was in my early 20’s. I just think this technology is awesome. But I digress.
I love The Sims, I don’t know what it is about the series or why I like it so much. In the Sims games, you have to do certain things like sleep, eat, use the restroom, socialize, entertain yourself etc. If you don’t do these things then your Sim will be very unhappy and probably die. I’ve never let it get to that point so I wouldn’t know for sure that that would happen.
The Sims 2 Castaway, you start out on a boat and you get to add a bunch of characters. I only added 2 because at the start of a game, I don’t want to have to deal with taking care of a bunch of Sims’ needs. I can barely handle 1, so I just made 2 so that when the time came to take care of the 2nd guys needs, then I will figure it out. I have the game forever so I can always either go back in and start over, or I can start a 2nd game.
After I created my Sims, they went sailing and there was a storm and yadda yadda yadda, stranded on a deserted island… castaway lol. He is alone, so my 2nd sim must be somewhere else. I haven’t found him yet.
All I seem to do is harvest things and fill my Sims needs. I have to harvest banana leaves and vines and food and this and that and the other. I need to harvest in order to eat, but I also have to harvest in order to make things, like clothes, a bed, a hut and whatever sorted things there are to make. Even though I have to harvest everything, I already know that it doesn’t matter because I’m already addicted to it. I just looked at the clock and it’s 1:30am. The last time I checked the clock it was 11:30pm. So I’ve been staring at my PSP for the last 2 hours like a zombie lol.
This is my character. You know, it’s too bad the PSP doesn’t take screenshots, otherwise the image would be so much nicer. Here he is wearing “Elven Short Shorts” because I didn’t have the ingredients for making anything else. This outfit took 5 banana leaves and 5 vines. In order to make something else, I will need more of the same ingredients as well as grass. Actually, this is the first outfit that I made, the second outfit I made is actually kind of embarrassing. I wouldn’t want my picture taken with it on and so I am going to respect my Sim by not showing what he is wearing, you know, out of respect for a person that doesn’t exist lol. He still has pride you know.
EA has only released 3 games for the PSP. The Sims, The Sims 2: Pets and The Sims 2: Castaway. I would love it if they would have 1 game with expansions you can buy, or maybe the Sims 3 with or without expansions. I’d love to play the Sims that you get to play on the Android phones that have vampires in it lol. Oh well, I will keep dreaming about that Android phone and maybe one day I might get one. I will keep dreaming. In the meantime, I have this new game to play and I love it.
