That's right -- she basically starts acting as a normal person would, utterly ruining the fantasy. Regardless of how you approach the edge of the buildings, she'll always slow down, making it impossible to progress any further in the game. It's like she suddenly becomes aware that elevators are a thing and feels super silly for how she's been getting around so far. And if you decide to try to make a jump anyway, you'll quickly find yourself replaying Wile E. Coyote's part in a Road Runner cartoon.
Hey, at least the gravity still works fine.
We can only hope that the Mirror's Edge sequel in the works adds a feature that automatically uploads your falls to YouTube and makes you look like the shittiest player ever.
The Sims 4 Censors The Entire Screen
The Sims 4 is the latest iteration of the popular virtual life/twisted god simulator that allows players to care for or (most commonly) psychologically destroy the inhabitants of their own virtual household. Naturally, EA doesn't want to let people in on the soul-killing fun without paying the price of admission, so they found a clever method to let pirates get a first taste before completely censoring all the good content. The method: literally censoring all the good content, by blurring the shit out of everything, as if your Sims' house was plastered in dicks.
Or they lived in a LucasArts adventure game.
As you might know, whenever one of the Sims does something that would raise the game's rating to 18+ (such as using the bathroom or suggestively eating a banana, probably) the game will censor it by blurring the offending graphics. In a legal copy of The Sims 4, the censorship will go away as soon as the character is decent again ... but pirated copies will retain the blur, which will continue to grow until it eventually censors the entire screen, rendering everything outside of the menu an unwatchable mess of scrambled pixel vomit. Which is pretty unfortunate, because no one plays The Sims because they want to leave things to the imagination.
We're forced to assume there's some sort of 2 Girls 1 Cup action going on here.
Everything beneath the censor blur is still running normally, however, taunting the pirate with all the forbidden allure of a scrambled porn channel. Players will have to sit and listen to their Sims babble to each other about their awesome lives now that their invisible, omnipresent tormentor has been called out as a cheapskate. Just think of all those important Sims life moments that will be missed out on!
Truly a quandary we all face.
Alan has a blog where he drowns Sims and rambles about the vidjagames at foxtaku.wordpress.com and a Twitter he always forgets about at @Foxtaku.
