If you're getting harassed by your significant other because of all the time you're spending in the Battlefield 3 beta, EA have just released the perfect thing to help you distract them. As long as you have a spare PC with Flash and Java, point them in the direction of this new demo of The Sims 3
You’ll get to play 20 minutes of some of the best content The Sims have to offer in this gameplay teaser. First, choose one of three classic character types as your Sim, and then send them off on their first adventure. Have your Sim explore an Egyptian pyramid, commune with ghosts in a haunted house, or let them party the night away with vampires. It’s up to you to decide what your Sim does next! Content in the teaser includes elements from The Sims 3, The Sims 3 Late Night, The Sims 3 World Adventures, and more.
An interesting approach for a demo. The Sims 2 demo
is one of our most popular files that we've ever hosted; it would have been nice to see a downloadable one but this should suffice to give people a taste to see if it's worth splashing out for.
Update: Looks like it has been taken offline at the moment; we'll see if we can find out what is happening.
