Exclusive Interview: Assistant Producer Megan Myers Talks Sims 3 Supernatural



Post Thumb:


Sims 3 Supernatural is scheduled to release in September for PC and Mac. Players will enter the mysterious town of Moonlight Falls where supernatural beings such as fairies, vampires and werewolves are the norm.

Dread Central sat down with Sims 3 Supernatural‘s Assistant Producer Megan Myers to get the inside scoop on the upcoming expansion!

AMANDA DYAR: The Sims 3 Supernatural is an upcoming expansion for The Sims 3. The action relocates to the town of Moonlight Falls where supernatural creatures and Sims with otherworldly powers are the norm. What all can you tell us about the town of Moonlight Falls and the secrets we’ll find in the town of the upcoming expansion?

MEGAN MYERS: Moonlight Falls is a town unlike any other with its towering falls, foggy hills, and mysteries that lurk around every corner. The neighborhood families all have rich histories and hidden secrets from the spell-slinging Crumplebottom sisters to the plasma-deprived Van Goulds. With tons of new venues to visit and collectibles to find, Moonlight Falls is full of activities for every Sim.

AMANDA: One of the most important new features in The Sims 3 Supernatural is the ability to play as various monsters from the worlds of horror and fantasy or gain special powers such as psychic abilities and witchcraft. Can you tell us how some of these special character classes will affect gameplay; for example if I’m a vampire will I have to stay out of the sun or sparkle, will I have to consume blood to survive and can I be friends with a Sim who happens to be a werewolf despite these two creatures rivaling histories?

MEGAN: Yes, if you’re a vampire, you will have to stay out of the sunlight and consume plasma to survive. If you play as a werewolf, you’ll have to learn to balance your lycanthropy skill that dictates your transformation from human form to wolf form and back. As far as rivalries go, the game does have the vampire families pitted up against the werewolf families in town. However, players can certainly choose to overcome that rivalry and create friendships or even romances between vampires and werewolves.

AMANDA: One of the most important features in The Sims 3 is the ability to create your own family through ‘WooHoo’ and ‘Trying for a Baby’. Will this feature carry over to The Sims 3 Supernatural, and how will the new creature types affect a Sims ability to have a child?

MEGAN: All supernatural Sims in The Sims 3 Supernatural will have the ability to ‘WooHoo’ and have children. For inter-supernatural romances, offspring will have a 50% chance of inheriting the supernatural characteristics of one side of the family.  For example, the child of a werewolf Sim and a fairy Sim would be either a full werewolf or a full fairy. This same scenario would play out for the offspring of a Supernatural Sim and an ordinary Sim. Of course, if two of the same supernaturals were to have a child, the child would inherit their characteristics.

AMANDA: Another important new feature in The Sims 3 Supernatural is magical item and elixir crafting. How deep is this crafting system and what types of items will players be able to create with it? Which enchanted item or elixir would you say is your personal favorite and why?

MEGAN: There are more than 30 different elixirs for Sims to create in The Sims 3 Supernatural, each with its own unique recipe of ingredients that are required in order to craft it. The effects of the elixirs will vary greatly. From the ability to create an elixir to turn an ordinary Sim into a supernatural Sim or vice-versa, to crafting an elixir that will decrease a Sim’s need to sleep to even an elixir that will cause a Sim to be attacked by bees, The Sims 3 Supernatural has a large variety to choose from. My personal favorite is the Clone Drone elixir which will clone a Sim. I love filling my house with clones and having five different versions of my Sim hanging out together, playing video games in the living room!

AMANDA: With EA’s recent acquisition of developing company PopCap, a crossover from PopCap’s highly popular title Plants vs. Zombies with The Sims 3 Supernatural only makes sense. Can you tell us where the idea for this merging of two great titles originated, how the Plants vs. Zombies items will affect gameplay in The Sims 3 Supernatural and if we can ever hope to see The Sims in a PopCap developed game?

MEGAN: When we were thinking about content for the Limited Edition of the game, PopCap’s Plants vs. Zombies came up, and we immediately knew it would be a great fit. Both games have common factors of broad appeal, irreverent humor and of course, zombies! Our first thought was that the Plants vs. Zombies Peashooter would be the perfect enemy for Sims to ward off zombies. We were excited to bring this content into the Limited Edition version of The Sims 3 Supernatural. Additionally, the Limited Edition pack includes creepy chic clothing for players to dress their zombies for a night of mischief and mayhem, all from the world of Plants vs. Zombies.

You can visit the official the Sims 3 Supernatural website to learn more about the game.

The Duffer Brothers Have Begun Working on Stranger Things 3



I wasn’t the world’s biggest fan of the first season of Netflix and The Duffer Brothers’ “Stranger Things” to tell you the truth. That said, I absolutely loved the second season (read our reviews HERE).

It is with this in mind that we are all looking forward to “Stranger Things 3”.

Recently Deadline reported that at Vulture Festival LA the Duffer Brothers, producer Shawn Levy, Finn Wolfhard, Paul Reiser, and Linnea Berthelsen talked about season two and teased season three.

“We are [in] very early days on season three, and we’re still figuring it out,” Ross Duffer said, before taking a beat, then adding: “I probably wasn’t supposed to say that. That’s not official; that wasn’t an official announcement — we’re just working on it, just for our own amusement… for fun!”


We all know at this point that there is going to be a “Stranger Things 3” and that The Duffer Brothers will one day begin working on it. Don’t worry so much, Ross Duffer.

After all, your brother already let us know that season three will begin after a time jump:

“Even if we wanted to hop into the action faster, we couldn’t,” says Matt Duffer. “Our kids are aging. We can only write and produce the show so fast. They’re going to be almost a year older by the time we start shooting season three. It provides certain challenges. You can’t start right after season two ended. It forces you to do a time jump. It’s a long way of saying that yeah, we’re going to do a time jump.”

What did you think of “Stranger Things 2”? Did you dig it more (or less) than season one? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below or on social media!

“Stranger Things 2” is currently streaming on Netflix.

It’s 1984, and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana, are still reeling from the horrors of the Demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down, but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.

James Cameron’s Terminator Reboot/Sequel Hires Screenwriter



The last word we brought you guys on producer James Cameron and Deadpool-director Tim Miller’s new Terminator film was when we let you know that Paramount had set the film’s release date for July 26, 2019.

Today we have news via The Wrap that the studio is bringing in screenwriter Billy Ray (Captain Phillips) to pen the movie’s script based on a story crafted by Cameron.

You may remember that Cameron and Miller created a writers room a while back to plan out an all-new trilogy of films, but while that writer’s room included David Goyer, Charles Eglee, and Josh Friedman, it seems like Ray will be the first film’s sole writer. For now.

Story details are, of course, being kept under wraps, but Cameron and Miller are treating the new movie as a direct sequel to Cameron’s T2: Judgment Day.

“This is a continuation of the story from ‘Terminator 1’ and ‘Terminator 2.’ And we’re pretending the other films were a bad dream,” Cameron told THR. “Or an alternate timeline, which is permissible in our multi-verse.”

We also know that Cameron plans to center the new film/trilogy around a new group of younger characters, who will eventually carry on the baton as it were.

“A lot of this is handing off the baton to a new generation of characters,” Cameron said. “We’re starting a search for an 18-something young woman to essentially be the new centerpiece of these stories. And then a number of other characters around her and characters from the future. We still fold time in the story in intriguing ways. But we have Arnold’s character and Linda’s character to anchor it.”

How excited are you for James Cameron’s new Terminator flick? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below or on social mdeia!

The new Terminator film is produced by James Cameron and will be directed by Tim Miller (Deadpool). The film stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton.

Terminator 2.5 is expected to hit July 26, 2019.
