    It was definitely well done - - one of the best launch trailers yet. It seems appropriately British in its humor since the Uni world looks so UK and the dubious accent a la John Cleese is hilarious. I especially like the look on the guy's face at the urinal when the gentleman next to him breaks etiquette and creepily edges closer.

    I gotta love how inclusive EA is being with LGBT sims these days in Aurora Skies and now the uni launch trailer. it is a nice break from the homophobic machismo and sexist mysogeny that seems like the norm in the video game world.

    Even more excited after watching that video. I hope Origin's direct download is available at midnight!

    LOL @ 0.53 on the video. - There are pictures circulating the internet that looks just like this girl. I love how EA plays off things in RL. Funny.

    Double-LOL @ 1.19 - Duckfaces!!!

    I noticed the green-screen in the trailer. I didnt realize that would be a part of one of the degrees. I love how they keep some stuff a secret for us

    I know! That was cool! I wanna say it's either apart of the technology degree and/or something for the video game designer career.

    That is probably the best Launch Trailer they have done!! Great job Sims Team!!! I loved it!! I can't wait to get this EP on Friday now. Although, I have to wait until I get my bursary through so I can get a new laptop that won't be dying any time soon!! I should have got it last week...buuuuuuut my student finance company screwed up and I wouldn't have got it if I didn't go to my university's welfare office and inquire about it haha.

    Had to go back and check this, I seem to see something new, each time I watch it!

    I wish that 'if you make that face, it will freeze like that' was true, but only for people who do duckfaces. then, when they are stuck that way for the rest of their life, it will discourage others from doing it.

    duck face annoys me deeply.

    yeah, on the topic of green screens? the outfits they were wearing is probably unlockoutfits. i hope it's not staged:(

    Could have been the actual John Cleese -- they got Patrick Stewart to do the original intro for Sims Medieval. 8) (Was so ticked off when I installed Pirates and Nobles and lost the intro cinematic!)

    Good reason to put in a half wall between urinals. :mrgreen:

    I think I'm going to be watching that trailer over...and over...and over. Hope catloverplayer's seen it -- looks like quite a few of the new kisses got featured. :thumbup:

    I love the use of the LOL captions! Looks like this pack's bringing back a lot more of the humor. And with it coming out so late in the cycle, we can really take advantage of what earlier packs offer to add on to the experience. (I hope I'm not the only Simmer who's sending an alien to University!)

    Brilliant trailer! So funny! LOL!

    Shame about the "Not all Images representative of actual gameplay" tagline at the bottom... I wish companies would just stick to showing actual gameplay...

    The greenscreen appears to be just Sims wearing the VR Goggles so I suspect it is staged. I know we can strictly speaking do this ourselves but it is misleading.

    Can't wait to get the pack on the 8th!!

    That was a really fun trailer. And I love all the LGBT references too. I wonder if there really is new urinal animations! LOL That would be so awesome

    I agree Kael. I know it's not the same thing, but you can always cheat and change your sims gender for as long as you'd like, then change them back if you wish. :)

    If it's something for the game developer career, I think they usually do wear special goggles when they're working with animators to create CGI -- I think I saw a video where Andy Serkis was working with the animators who were creating Gollum for the Lord of the Rings/Hobbit movies. So there could be something similar in game, more like a profession than a rabbit hole career.

    It was the cutest trailer I have seen for the SIMS 3 yet. I love the President of the college thing it had going on in it.

    Now my PEPS are at an all time high. :mrgreen:

    I wonder how they got all the sims to makeout at the same time at the pool. I'm very curious.
