The original The Sims game was inherently dark…

Is it just me?

When I first bought the game back in 2001, I remember it being addictive, awesome, groundbreaking for its time and wonderfully odd. When compared to the later, sweeter installments, and even its many expansion packs, it feels cold and well…kind of creepy in comparison.

The original How to Play instruction manual for The Sims, which I remember vividly but could never find in my house, was snarky and full of witty commentary. Later on the manual was more straightforward, but still retained some of the self-referential humor that is inherent in the gameplay and is, I think, part of what makes the game kind of unnerving.

(To this day, I wish I could find that damn original manual!)

Just looking at that main screen with that one neighborhood you’re forever attached to as the jaunty background music plays in the ever-sunny world, even that kind of weirds me out. 

Maybe it’s the uncanny valley-ness of the dated graphics, maybe it’s remembering the way the kids never aged, how the adults remained awkward and odd and never got any older, and how if the children failed school, they were just sent off to some horrific place only known as “boot camp”…forever. Yes, remember? They NEVER came back.

And when those burglars came stalking in the night and the Buy and Build modes just shut off as that scary, urgent music played and you were left helpless and asleep…

And when the fires started out of nowhere while your Sims made that same plate of salad-looking food and you forgot to install a smoke alarm and you were forced to watch them hopelessly burn to death and run around screaming for their lives…

And in the first expansion pack, Livin’ Large, when that awful Tragic Clown appeared and made it impossible for your Sim to rest or eat until they fell ill and eventually just died unless you put that eerie clown portrait in front of the fireplace…if you even figured that out…

Sure, things got more mellow and felt less odd with later expansion packs, especially when you were given the ability to visit shopping areas like Old Town and other places outside of the claustrophobic little classic neighborhood.

And OK, I’m not saying The Sims is a scary game or even that it freaked me out as a child, but I will always look back on the original as being, well…kinda creepy.

In December of 2008, Konami filed a lawsuit against Pentavision for infringing on having likeness to Konami’s patents, Beatmania. Konami has had successful lawsuits in terminating other likeness games, such as Ez2DJ and In The Groove, but nothing progressed amongst this lawsuit. Both parties ended up settling this out of court, allowing Pentavision off the hook, but only allowing Konami rights to distribute Technika in Japan, as well as Pentavision being required to pay a fee for any future DJ Max games released.

Neowiz eventually bought Pentavision, but made the team focus on their mobile games only, cancelling DLC for Technika Tune on the VITA. The DJ Max team ended up quitting Neowiz and have created their own company, Nurijoy, who has made two spiritual successors to the game, such as Beatcraft CYCLON and Superbeat XONIC.

DJ Max Respect brings back the old team back for their revival, and final farewell to the franchise, by being the first of it’s kind to be brought to home consoles, as it “respects” the creators to the original game, alongside fans who have been waiting for a new entry since 2013. It is announced to include every single song from the DJ Max series as future DLC.

Press “X” to pay respects.

General Erich Ludendorff: After defeating yet another Allied offensive, we have truly begun to bleed French white! Now that Russia is defeated, all we need to do is keep the British at bay until our reinforcements arrive from the East and then we can –

The entire American Expeditionary Force:

That is a thing that makes me very sad to this day. 

Get fucked Kraut

Why would you care? I mean come on, France, Russia, and all the Land between Russia and Germany’s modern borders would have fared way better under the Kaiserreich.

I care because of the violation of Belgium. A country that was not going to go to war with you. A country that welcomed John Moses Browning and he helped save Fabrique National from bankruptcy. Y’all just walked through Belgium to get to France then executed thousands of Belgians because you were surprised they resisted. 

Ok the “Raping of Belgium” was an English Propaganda Hoax, which is widely known, as well as the death of Edith Cavill who indeed was a spy for the British. There were no executions, the Reichswehr was not the Wehrmacht and the Kaiserreich did not follow a genocidal agenda, nor did Germany start this war. We were drawn into it, by Bloodthirsty Frenchmen who were seeking revenge and by Brits who wanted to restore their Power in Europe.

Such a German perspective.
