My wife is obsessed with the Sims. She likes to take all of our friends and create little virtual families based upon them, marrying some friends to other friends, making a few of them the children of others, and every once in a while throwing a T.V. family into the mix. Nothing makes her more blissfully zen than sitting in front of the Sims for an hour or so, buying things and redesigning houses, and trying to get our virtual friends to make babies.
I personally don't get it, but I know she will be overjoyed to hear that Aspyr today announced that the Sims 2 for Mac is now Gold Master
and will soon begin shipping. It's listed at $49.99.
