It's the Summer of the Sims and at the EA Summer Showcase, there were disc (Frisbee) catching dogs on hand to excite the crowd about Sims 3 Pets. Just like the title implies, this expansion adds pets to the core game that people have been clamoring for a while about.
In this expansion, you will get to play with a bunch of furry creatures and probably be able to build a room with no escape around them to watch them die. You'll be able to choose from a cat, dog, and something exclusive on the PC version: horses.
The Sims 3 Pets
The PC version was not playable at the event but the creature creator was available to toy around with. In the creator, I was able to pick a breed of horse and then tweak how I wanted it to behave, whether it was mean spirited or just plain goofy. You are also able to design the coloring of the animal. One dude next to me made his horse coat resemble a bowl of fruity pebbles. My horse was just black with blood around its mouth because every pet I have ever owned has gained a taste for raw meat.
In the demonstration, the presenter was able to have the pet play with the other sims and then, by using voice commands, have the dog cause chaos on a nearby chair. Voice commands can be a great adaptation to this game and let's just hope that it adds to the overall experience instead of subtracting from it.
