The Sims 4 is super customizable, uses lots of EMOTIONS

If I knew Simlish I'd put some here

We knew that The Sims 4 was coming, but the game was finally detailed and shown off at Gamescom today. Gameplay will largely have to do with emotions, so if your Sim is pissed off they won't be able to flirt and so you might have to have them punch a punching bag for a bit to vent. Emotions are powered by "SmartSim," a bullshit buzz word that they threw out there for whatever reason.

Customization was one of the biggest elements shown off at the show, both of the houses and the Sims themselves. Room sizes can be extremely customized by dragging each to the desired length and width. The same goes for the Sims, as customizing a character is like "playing with clay." Noses, shoulders, and just about everything can be screwed around with just like the opening of Mario 64

There's already a website for The Sims 4 and you can apparently already pre-order it if you'd like. YEAH!
