Sims get a Hot Date
Frustrated geeks and soap opera fans everywhere will be happy to hear that Electronic Arts has announced another add-on pack for their best-selling family game The Sims. Hot Date will, as the title suggests, add the arcane art of dating to the game, along with new characters, interests and "romance objects" such as love tubs, couches, picnic baskets and marital aids. Maybe. There will also be a new downtown area where you can take your Sim's significant other for a romantic candle-lit meal, walk in the park or shopping spree. And according to the press release, your Sims will now be able to "flirt, play footsie [and] engage in a little tonsil hockey". Steady now!
