Not gonna lie, not a whole lot went on in this playthrough. Despite playing for an entire sim week.
There was a lot of this.
And a lot of this. Nightmare inducing.
Er, there was a lot of this as well.
Malcolm Landgraab IV: Rawr, I’m a monster! I’m gonna getchu!
I believe it.
There was also some of this, which, gosh, the patriarchy would just LOVE, wouldn’t they?
Starla, was there ANY real gameplay?
Er, well, kind of? I guess?
Malcolm owns two properties starting out. One is an electronics store, the other is this… club? Thing? So we went here to fool around first.
And, well, er, Malcolm and Dina took that literally.
At least they seem to really like each other?
Dina is a natural at the whole trophy wife, social butterfly thing. She chatted up customers.
Dina: Paying 20 bucks to hang out with me all day is quite a bargain, don’t you think?
She also chatted up the employees.
Dina: I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but you’re hideous.
Dina: That’s okay, though. I’m here now. I will do the best I can.
Dina: There. Don’t you feel so lucky that I’m here to help now?
Employee: My eyebrows are gone.
Dina: Well, sacrifices must be made. I figured it would distract from your nose.
Whatever Dina is doing, she’s doing it right, I guess.
Ah, that explains it. When you sell your soul, good things happen.
Then Dina wanted a car, so Malcolm bought her one. What baby wants, baby gets.
Dina: I wanted yellow, but this will do, I suppose.
Hashtag true love. Hashtag relationship goals. Hashtag no filter.
And, I mean, you know what comes next.
Dina actually rolled some wishes for Madeline. She’d like to see her become an overachiever and she’d also like to hire her to work at the store. So, we invited her over for awkward conversation.
Malcolm Landgraab IV: So, have you had your first woohoo yet?
Dina: Ugh, Malcolm, you can’t just ask someone if they’ve had their first woohoo yet.
Dina: But you haven’t yet, have you? You’re saving yourself for someone special? It should be special, you know. Make him buy you jewelry first.
Madeline: Can we just, like, talk about SCHOOL? Like normal families?
It was then that I realized Malcolm doesn’t even care about running businesses. His LTW is to become a criminal mastermind. Because of course it is. So we got him a job in the criminal career.
Malcolm’s Eyebrows: At lasssssst, our time has coooooome!
This gives Dina the freedom to drink in her underwear all day.
This is when I realized she is my spirit sim.
Also, Dina’s daughter prefers Malcolm. This is sad.
Dina (drunkenly) handles the electronics store while Malcolm is at work.
I’m not very good at running businesses. I think this place started out as a 3-star business. It now has one star.
It’s partly due to the fact that we hired this woman with a gold badge in sales and no badge in personal space.
Employee: BUY THE THING. BUY IT NOW. YOU NEED THE THING.
Customer: I will literally cut your face off if you bother me one more time.
I can’t tell you how many times I wished there was an option to tell her to chill out.
Beau Broke’s pregnant wife came by so we all awkwardly stared at her until she left.
…And that is actually where we ended the week. Wow. What a life, right?
Next time, we will check in with Darren and Brandi Dreamer. Happy simming!
