Video streaming by Ustream

If you want to watch the whole event, it actually doesn’t start until about 18:50 (they really need to trim this video down a bit, although if they do the time I’ve noted the demo as starting at will be wrong).

Parts two and three, which include a Q&A session, can be found on the Videos tab of the game page.

Current Poll Extended To 4th October

The current poll asks whether you bought Barnacle Bay, the last non-free town released on The Sims 3 Store — “Sim Gamer” bothered to vote, and gave the following explanation for their “No” choice:

I thought it as to expensive and then also from seeing many reviews in youtub I realized that it wasn’t worth it, but I am really looking orward to the new town

If you haven’t bothered to vote, then it’s your fault that I’ve had to extend the poll again due to a lack of them. Right your wrong, vote now on the right of any page — then maybe when the poll is due to close on Tuesday 4th October, I’ll actually be able to do so and reveal some results.

Still from The Sims 3 Pets voice videoKotaku has got hold of some footage of some of the dog sounds being produced for The Sims 3 Pets, and also the details on how the horse sounds are produced:

Hard-working professionals (who usually stand on two feet) are paid to sound like dogs and, now horses in the video game series The Sims 3 Pets. Today, we present footage of some of their work.

We also present a twist in the world of video game animal sounds: for this October’s The Sims 3 Pets, the game’s creators are merging the voice-acting of humans and animals. How? Why? Watch, listen, learn and see if you can tell human from beast.

Go to Kotaku to watch the video.
