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.

Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:

DefCon (PC)

DefCon is an impressive online, multiplayer strategy game that simulates the devastation of global thermonuclear war. The game, inspired by the 1983 cult-classic film, War Games, superbly evokes the tension, paranoia and suspicion surrounding the Cold War era. DefCon is now available in North American retail outlets for only $29.99.

The Sims 2 Celebration Stuff (PC)

Party planning isn’t all fun and games and preparing for a big event can be quite stressful. But now Electronic Arts is announcing that fans of The Sims 2 can work through pre-party jitters and celebrate in style with an all-new collection of furniture, party fashions and décor. The Sims 2 Celebration Stuff, which arrives on store shelves today, gives your Sims the tools to plan and perfect their parties–from elegant weddings and surprise birthday bashes to outdoor barbeques and fiestas.

Whether players are hosting the party of the season for their Sims or fine-tuning their skills for a real-life event, The Sims 2 Celebration Stuff has something for everyone!

The Sims 2 Celebration Stuff provides all-new items – from wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses to paper lanterns and party garlands – build on the celebrated Sims experience that allows players to create and control virtual characters throughout their lives while determining the outcome of their relationships and choosing their destiny. The popular franchise has been translated into 22 languages and sold more than 85M games around the world – that’s enough to give one to every person in the U.S.’s three largest states, California, New York and Texas! Its popularity is due in part to The Sims appeal beyond a traditional gaming audience; more than half of The Sims players are female!

Features :

  • Plan Picture–Perfect Weddings: Give your Sims the Wedding Dress of their dreams and complete the look with a Tiara or elegant Flowers. While the groom is looking suave in his tuxedo, your Sims’ bridesmaids will be stunning in their Bridal Party Dresses. Beautiful Wedding Flowers, scrumptious Wedding Cake, and the perfect Wedding Arch add beauty and elegance to your Sims big day!
  • Decorate the House or Yard for a Birthday Bash! While it’s your Sims cheerful Party Balloon decorations and Banners that invite guests in, it’s the delicious Birthday Cake that will tempt them to stay. Watch out when you set-up the Buffet Table – your Sims will be ready to feast!
  • Relax at Outdoor Fiestas and Parties: No laid-back Sunday is complete without luminous Paper Lanterns, colorful Party Garland and a barbecue. But be sure to keep your guests out of the sun, offering shady repose under summer Umbrellas. Once the sun sets, light the Hurricane Lamps, or offer your guests a seat at the family-sized table - decorated with a delightful Party Runner!
