Sims 2 Pets Breed Creator - clip from Gamespot

Release date for The Sims 2 pets is still over a month away. I am so curious how the pet generator will work and how easy will it be to create some Anatolians. I saw this movie over at Gamespot and found a linkable version on YouTube. The movie is embedded below.

The first part of the movie shows a sim playing with their kitty. Then just outside the window, there's a dog that fetches and the camera goes to check on that too. Love the cute expression after the last retrieve. I think many of the animations really capture the personalities of pets. I don't think I'll be teaching my user created Anatolians to fetch unless I can't avoid giving them that skill in order to make them have other benefits in the game (unlock other necessary actions and rewards).

Love that curly tail in the breed morpher. I hope it can be tweaked to do lesser or greater curl.
Toward the end of the clip, a Samoyed look-alike is impressive! S/he chases his tail and generally looks so cute. :D

From the Gamespy Preview: (see the rest at the link below)
As you'd suspect, Sims 2 Pets allows your Sims to adopt or breed cats and dogs (as well own birds or little rodents). But what threw us for a loop was just how much personality these little guys have. We watched as one of our Sims tried to teach her new dog to roll over: Our puppy looked up at her with glossy eyes, one ear cocked, her furry head following every movement of her owner's hand. It doesn't take long to form an attachment with the onscreen animals.
The cats in the game are really awesome in some of the pictures I've seen on testers sites. If you want to see more sites with both dog and cat pics, do go to Snooty Sims! (link below) It's my favorite Sims 'newspaper'. :) or start here with this lovely Golden Retriever at Gamespot



STILL haven't found time to play my game, so it's vicarious "playing" for me just to read about the pets and go on anticipating this upcoming expansion pack for my current sim families. B)
