Oh, I see now.

Could be interesting but it's probably just another attempt by Guinness to stay relevant.

Case in point:

How could 80 cosplayers be the record?  I've seen more at Denny's during ComicCon...

Cosplayers... Oh! here:
"One of the largest cosplay events is Comiket in Japan, which can attract up to 100,000 cosplayers Bianually!"

Apparently, Richard garriet, maker of ULTIMA, has a house full of traps and secret passageways.
Whaaat?

Now, The juicy stuff.
Nice bit on the sims and simcity.
Most controversial sim based easter egg.
On simcopter, Jacques Servin added an easter egg wher on certain days, all the males walked around in swimming trunks, kissing each other. He was fired.

Silver screen sims?
In may 2007, Century fox (G, U, L, P!) Aquired rights to make a sims movie. (Yes, there will be blood.)

And a nice pic of Will Wright smiling like a creep and holding an award.
