Hi Simmers,

SimGuruHydra here! Want to share with you all a recap of an exciting day we hosted at EA headquarters on behalf of The Sims 3. We had a handful of fans like you visit our campus to meet some of The Sims Studio producers, check out some of our upcoming games and get hands-on with The Sims 3 University Life!

Additionally, we visited with The Sims audio team who shared with us the upcoming line-up of rising stars that have recorded their music in Simlish for The Sims 3 University Life. Whether Sims are throwing the party of their lives, rallying a protest or hitting the books, we think that these new Simlish tunes are sure to leave a footprint your time spent playing University Life. There’s new music from the California indie rock band The Mowgli's, the British Pop group Blaise, the Norwegian sensation Donkeyboy and many more. With such an eclectic mix of songs to choose from, you and your Sims are sure to have the time of your lives in this pack. Here's the full list of artists:

•    Ashtar Command – "All of our Lives we Must Learn to Forget"
•    Dan Deacon – "True Thrush"
•    Gold Fields – "Treehouse"
•    The Mowgli’s – "San Francisco"
•    The Royal Concept – "D amn"
•    The Shades – "Gobba Bweezie"
•    Blaise – "Thunderstorm"
•    Leontib – "U Nu Wah"
•    Donkeyboy – "City Boy"
•    The Penelopes – "Now Now Now"

In addition to the audio tour, players were able to get their hands-on The Sims 3 University Life. Overall, it was an awesome day packed full of exciting activities. Here’s some of our favorite moments...
