And then Jesus Christ showed up...
So, yeah. Been playing The Sims 2 a lot. So, last night, I'm doing my thing, though I was plagued by 'doh' moments. Like asking the wife of another of my sims to move in with the woman she's currently sneaking around with. And then when her hubby comes by for a bootie call clicking 'Try for Baby' instead of 'Woohoo'. Damn. So, then she gets preggers (I shall state, for clarity that the 'she' in this case is Bettina, rather than her girlfriend Valkyrk.) and I devise a scheme in which I switch over to her hubby's plot and get Royce to ask her to live with him again. She agrees, she goes home, she pops out a kid. Hurrah! I then have her invite Valkyrk over, make out in front of Royce (those are some great screenshots) and have Royce divorce her. Great! She's now babyless and free to marry Valkyrk! Hurrah! Current Mood:
So, I tootle back to Val's pad, ring up Bettina, invite her over and have her move in. Now. Here's where things get weird. So, they get engaged and throw a Wedding Party. A minute into the Wedding Party with nary a Woo or a Hoo between the girls, Bettina grows a belly. Now. I'm not talking about a little 'Oh! Yay! She's preggers' bump. We're talking full on about to drop bump. (Sims 2 is really neat as this progresses over the course of three or so days) Okay... So... /who/ is the father of this child??? Then they get married, and I notice that there is a peculiar name on the 'Toast to' list. This is not anyone I can /see/ at the party, nor anyone I can think of. Then I notice a glass hovering in mid-air. Ghosts you can se... so.. who the heck is this? I begin to wonder if (since Val called in sick that day to get married and stuff) if it was her boss. But that would be very strange. Anyway. Point is, Bettina is 'too pregnant' to go on the Honeymoon and when Val gets back, Bettina gives birth. Now. Here is where it gets really weird. Normally, in this game there are lots of cut scenes. When you get Nookie, when you get engaged, get married, you know, the big stuff. Giving Birth is one of the cuter ones. The mom's green diamond thingy swells and then splits into two and it's very schmaltzy and cute. There was no cut scene for this birth. There was screaming agony (also new) and then the child was born. With no eyes. THE BABY HAS NO EYES! It is SO FREAKY!
This has been your Freaky Sims Updates.
Should I post some of my screenshots? Most are funny and some aren't work safe. So I leave the question up to my friends. Tell me if ya wanna see 'em! I can also include the crazy mutants I made too.
