About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

In The Urbz: Sims in the City, players move out of the suburbs and take to the streets as they build their reputation and attempt to become the biggest player in town. Style your sim in the trendiest clothes and funkiest hairstyles while unlocking nine districts and socializing with over 65 unique characters, including the Black Eyed Peas. In the Cosmo Street District, players can interact with the band members and even sing along with the group – all in Simlish, the game’s exclusive quirky language. Players can listen to nine exclusive songs specifically re-recorded for the game in Simlish – a first in videogame history. Gamers who purchase one of the first 700K games will receive a prepaid card to download 4 Black Eyed Peas songs, including three exclusive mixes. Also, remember to be on the look out for The Urbz toys available on the same day.

The Urbz: Sims in the City was developed by Maxis Studios and will be rated “T” (Teen) for consoles and “E” for handhelds. Check out the game’s official Web site at
