The Sims 3 Pets is now out and a little birdie informs me that horses are exclusive to the PC version, so that’s good. That same little birdie is in every version though, being the sort of creature that doesn’t care too much about the company he keeps. I actually had quite a bit of fun with the Create a Pet doohickey, treating it as a cruel and unethical genetics laboratory, but the advertising campaign for the expansion takes that one step further with a hybrid of man and dog, called Trevor Mountleg no less, encouraging ownership of pets. And sex in haystacks. Peculiar.
There was a unicorn in there, but you might not have noticed because you were too busy wondering if an unkempt British dog-man was about to propose that you tame him like a stallion. Thank all that is good they didn’t actually make a video of Trevor sitting in a gaudy mansion surrounded by his ‘pets’, making what could be referred to as a ‘move’ on a cat while urging experimentation.
Oh wait, they did.
He has loosened his tie in preparation for becoming nude in the near future.
