The Sims 3 Trailer: Exercise Comedy

"Check out the new gameplay trailer for The Sims 3 which shows awesome new gameplay, different locations, clothing, interactions, new objects, houses, customization, new career paths, and Sunset Valley," says publisher Electronic Arts.

Me? All I see is some sort of postmodern social commentary, with the demands of exercise and restrictions of scarcity being recreated in a virtual world, but that's probably because I've been reading my old English theory papers. Sims 3 hits PC on June 2.

    With how this is going online, does anyone see this as starting to replicate second life?

      'SimFriend', which allows users to choose a vitual Sim Friend who would email them throughout the day.
      'SimSocial', which allows users to create their own Sim online, and have an adventure with them.
      'SimSidekick', which allows users to surf the web with a sim.

      Second life is an MMO with nothing else different to do then IRL, you can't compare the two at all...

        Did you just say that you can't do anything in SL that you can't do in the real world? I only played the game for 15 minutes and the first thing it taught me how to do was fly.

        I thought they were doing that. Like your neighbor's houses are actually other players. Of course you're going to be more informed here :)
