Let's Play The Sims 2 Legacy!

The first episode of my new series is now available for viewing -


This series is a let's play and a legacy.  It will track the lives of Stella Sterling and her cat, Sir Purr-A-Lot, and the children/kittens they have.  The family has a main goal to build up a family business and make it successful so that it can pass on to each new generation.  

I've really enjoyed playing and producing this let's play so far.  Playing the game again has been a lot of fun and I'm realising it is very useful for my machinima as I am able to see interactions that I either forgot about or never knew existed.

I have been a little disappointed by some feedback from people complaining that I need to finish Pleasantview.  I have to say I was expecting it, but I still get a little peeved when I see it.  Pleasantview is an absolute priority for me but it takes a lot of time to create and it means that I can only upload a video every 1-3 months.  I've wanted to increase my uploads to youtube and producing let's plays will enable me to do it.  They are quick and easy to make in comparison with machinima series.  If people are not interested in watching a let's play, I understand, but telling me to focus on Pleasantview isn't going to get it finished sooner.  I cannot and will not spend all my time and energy on one project.  Very few people could do this and sustain it for a lengthy period.  To keep Pleasantview fresh and interesting to me I need to do other things too.  Rant over ;)

I apologise for any 'difficult' audio in the video - I am still experimenting with the sound and mic, etc.  Still, I hope some of you enjoy it!

Thanks for watching!


  1. Tell me about it Doons... the "instant gratification" type of fans who bug us to complete Pleasantview / Strangetown Monty at the expense of our other projects. These folks should try making their own machinima to see how much hard work it is, so they'd learn to appreciate each episode, rather than gulp them down quickly and demand more.

    Good that you're aren't burning yourself out with only one complex project. Keep the "Let's Plays" going.

    1. Thanks Aldo! But I hope you do release another ep soon ;)

  2. I posted a comment too asking about will you finish Pleasantview... Sorry, didn't think of you not liking it.. I really like Pleasantview though and glad to see you do a Legacy Challenge :) I think Sir Purr-A-Lot rocks. I'm looking forward to all of your next videos.. Good luck!
