The Sims 4 will not have pools or toddlers at launch date. Are you kidding me?

http://ap.ign.com/en/the-sims-4-game-mac/72103/news/the-sims-4-launching-without-swimming-pools-or-tod

So, another dumb decision by EA has been made. The Sims 4 will be released this September, but they decided to remove the swimming pools and toddlers. Why the fuck would you remove 2 simple things like that? And why bother telling us about this? Just don't mention it and have them in the game! Are they fucking stupid??

"While we recognize that some of you will be disappointed that pools and toddlers won’t be available when The Sims 4 Base Game launches in September, you should know that we’re building an incredibly strong foundation that is capable of fulfilling every one of your desires in the years to come."

Oh we already had games that fulfils every one of our desires. It's called the Sims 1 till 3. People, buy those 3 games instead if you haven't. Unlike this new ones, they actually are made with care and effort, except the expansion packs but you can just ignore them. Ignore 4 because it'll be like Sim City before it. I can see that it'll be an "all online experience" where you can't even play offline.

Maxis describing Sims 4 as a "strong foundation" for future content. Yep. Welcome to videogames.

My first thought when I looked at the article on IGN was "Why would you produce a video for this when it's only 40 seconds long?" Seriously, IGN's "journalistic" decisions make me scratch my head far more than any other media outlet I've seen

I guess the pool engine is just that complex. Maybe it'll have special mechanics in pool areas where guys can suddenly become superattracted to women or become embarrased that their trunks fell off in the pool. The water must be hyperrealistic and there's a minigame where you have to tap rapidly to do the perfect cannonball. Toddlers also mean modeling pregnant women and their unique animations, besides the toddlers themselves, and...

 

...Hey EA, maybe you should just, oh I dunno, delay the game? Sounds like it's not finished. 

 

Oh wait, you don't want to do that, you'll miss the holiday season where you'll sell the game with exclusive preorder content INSTEAD of pools and toddlers.

Release Now, Patch Later

Soon we'll also be receiving Doors and Teenagers as part of an expansion pack....

 

But in all seriousness, the Sims have always been known to hold back on features that could've otherwise been out at launch (*cough weather *cough) and releasing a crap load of unnecessary expansions until that 1 you actually care about but this just takes it too far. Not including even the 2 basic features of a game based on LIFE simulation is pretty stupid. I've been a fan of the series for a long time even buying the expansions for extra items but it's decisions like this that seriously make me want to reconsider buying the game.

 

But this is the same company that us wait for 3 years for a freaking diving board......

I really am not surprised as its EA. They have destroyed some of the best series going, Battlefield, Fifa, road rash, and then there's mass effect 3 went out with a bang.

Duh. Yeah. Marketing and sales.

I've been always "late" for Sims games and expansions, and currently only have 2 expansions for 3, and plans for getting some 3 or 4 more, and that's it.
They should have withheld the toddlers because there is a vocal group of sims players that don't like dealing with babies and toddlers.
It seems like I'll be skipping 4 completely, since they ALSO eliminated the Create-a-Style and now items can't be personalized (get the pack that unlocks that characteristic.

EA has been flaky with their just-released games and late with updates to patch the sloppy coding (and let's not talk about translations). Thanks to the moding scene for fixing what EA messes.
