It looks like EA was listening to the outrage from fans of The Sims franchise regarding the removal of swimming pools and many other features from The Sims 4 that players believed should be part of the base game. Ghost Sims were added into The Sims 4 in an update earlier today, and next month’s update will bring the return of swimming pools. That’s not all either. In December Sims will have access to new careers as well. We’ve all taken our jabs at EA, saying that these sorts of features would be making their return in some form of DLC, but these updates will be coming for free to the game. +1 internet points to you EA. Star Wars themed Halloween costumes are also being added, as well as additional eye color options. There’s no exact date for the swimming pool and career updates yet, and no specifics were given on what career paths will be coming in the update. At least The Sims 4 fans can look forward to some of those base features coming to the newest game in the series very soon.

It’s one of those lessons some indie developers have to unfortunately learn the hard way. For all the awesome folks out there who want to help promote your game, there are plenty more who will take advantage of you. Leszek Lisowski is the head of Wastelands Interactive, who just recently put their new game Worlds of Magic up on Steam early access. With the game looking to generate additional funds while development continued, Lisowski was happy to send Steam codes to reviewers and YouTubers who asked. Hopefully the additional coverage could help bring some notoriety to the new title. Unfortunately, Lisowski says that his small team did not have time to verify the numerous requests, and a large portion of the keys given out are being re-sold. “So, as it turned out, roughly 70% of the keys we had given out were taken under false pretenses, or to use a more direct term, stolen. It left us asking ourselves: Were we really so blind and naive? “As it turned out, the answer was “Yes”, but we’re not alone.” Upon further review, Lisowski discovered that scammers were sending request from several similar email addresses, and saying they were part of YouTube channels with which they actually had no affiliation. In the future, Lisowski says that Wasteland will require Steam key requests from YouTubers to be verified by sending a message via the YouTube messaging system. He was also curious just how deep the rabbit hole went, so to speak. After slightly editing the phony emails he had received and creating a new Gmail account, Lisowski sent request to several other Steam early access games asking for keys. Many replied with a key without checking him out. The keys have since been returned, and Lisowski says that he has contacted developers who seem to be vulnerable to this scam. You can read Lisowski’s full blog post on the matter here.

Lumosity is a paid service specifically designed to exercise your brain to increase your learning capacity. Portal 2 is a game where you solve puzzles to beat a psychopathic super computer who wants to kill you. And according to a study held by the Florida State University, Portal 2 is better brain exercise. The study had participants play Portal 2 and Lumosity for eight hours then tested their problem solving, spatial skills, and persistence. The end results were that Portal 2 players showed an improvement in cognitive skills. Of course, it should be noted that Popular Science labeled the study inconclusive, but the effects of this game on neuroplasticity should be noted and perhaps studied further. [via GamePoltics]

The newest character to be introduced to the Skullgirls fighting game lineup is Elisa. She’s a combination of Cleopatra and the Mummy. It’s not too far of a stretch, but she combines moves that make her appear as a pompous Egyptian royal and an undead mummified zombie at the same time. However, just as over-the-top hilarious are her moves are the reactions from her opponents. Pause the video a few times to watch Ms. Fortune as Elisa lays into her. The update is ready for PS3 and Xbox 360. It’s unclear if it’s ready for the Steam version, but it might be.
