The Sims 3 Spoofs Star Trek
EA has kicked advertisement into high gear to promote its upcoming life simulator sequel The Sims 3. The video above is one of many such attempts to get its infamous money printing machine back to where it should be: at the top of the PC gaming sales charts.
The trailer not only shows the possibilities of user created content within The Sims 3, but it does so humorously by mocking caricatures of our beloved space heroes Kirk and Spock in a staged setting.
Specifically, we are treated to what could only be described as a complete poke at J.J. Abrahams’ Star Trek reboot film. If you’ve seen the film, you’ll connect all the dots here.
Now, it begs to question: Will we be able to recreate this exact theme in The Sims 3? Conveniently, the disclaimer at the end of the video says otherwise.
All that I know is that if I can’t kill off any red shirts, I will be sorely disappointed. Not that I play The Sims or anything *cough* *cough*.
PC gamers can expect The Sims 3 to start hitting shelves early June.
