Since Kirk has completed his aspiration, the family was able to build the first public lot, a memorial park dedicated to their recently deceased friend.

The Sims 4 – Game Review
This review was originally published on 1st April (i.e. before the Get to Work expansion pack release). The Sims franchise has been something near and dear to me for the past 14 years. The series have been with me from my awkward teen years (including the brief dark and gothic phase) and throughout university, all... Continue Reading →
