September 17th is only 36 days away, and I've officially begun counting down the days I have left until this game consumes my life.

And here are the details from EA:

In the The Sims 2, you direct your Sims over a lifetime and mix their genes from one generation to the next. You set your Sims' goals in life; fame, fortune, family, romance or knowledge. Give them a long, successful existence or leave their lives in shambles. Take them to extremes, from getting busted to seeing a ghost, from marrying an alien to writing a great novel. Unleash your creativity with the all-new Create-A-Sim feature, new building options, and the new in-game movie camera. Get ready to mix their genes, fulfill their dreams, and push them to extremes. What do you want to do with your Sims' lives?

Mix Genes: Your Sims have DNA and inherit physical and personality traits. Take your Sims through an infinite number of generations as you evolve their family tree.

Fulfill Dreams: Your Sims now have purpose in life. Do they aspire to a life of fame, fortune, family, knowledge, or romance? It's up to you to decide if they will be a lover or a loser, a prince or a pauper, a fool or a mastermind, and many other choices. Give them what they want and they'll lead a long, successful existence; indulge their fears and risk ruining their lives. It's all in your hands.

Push The Extremes: Will your Sims be left at the altar and need a shrink, or inherit a fortune and become filthy rich? Witness the big moments that make every Sim's life uniquely memorable.

Unlimited Creativity: Generate unique Sims with the new Create-A-Sim, packed with a vast selection of facial features, hairstyles, and outfits. Build dream homes and design neighborhoods with new building, design, and home furnishing options.

Revolutionary Movie-making: Make your own Sim films with the all-new movie-making feature. Create the cast, set the stage, take control of the camera, and capture your own screenplay in action. Zoom in close to record every detail as your very own Sims sitcom unfolds.

THAT is awesome.

Holy God I forgot this came out! But now I have it, so that means I'll probably be MIA for the next six months.

How is the game?

My girlfriend bought it yesterday (hence me spending an hour and a half fitting a DVD drive to our PC), and I have the feeling I won't see her for at least a month, while she sims our relationship, rather than actually living it.

I'm digging it, but it really isn't that different from the first game. Yeah, it's in 3-D and the sims have a little more freewill, but some people might be expecting more. (What, I do not know.) What's really cool are the fully animated cutscenes whenever something memorable happens, such as the first kiss, the first time a couple has sex (the bed shakes violently!), proposals, etc.
