For the holiday, I decided to go back to visit the Alphabettis stranded in Sims 2. My original plan had been to buy the Christmas tree from the Sims 2 EA store, and have a nice little Christmas with my Sims. (Since there isn’t a Christmas in Sims 3, but you can make Santa show up bearing presents in Sims 2.)
Unfortunately there was an error when I tried to buy anything from the Sims 2 store. So EA officially ruined my Sims’ Christmas. Boo!
There are four Alphabettis remaining in Sims 2. Jimmy Alphabetti née Phoenix (shown here returning from a walk in The Mist).
Garamond (looking oddly like The Joker with that jawline).
Helvetica, the version before the one who moved to Sims 3.
And of course, Makoto.
Three out of the four of them wanted to adopt a dog. Meet Otis!
Otis has a regrettable tendency to play in his own puddles.
I made sure everyone sat down for a family dinner. Grilled cheese for Christmas! Sure I could have had them cook a turkey, but it wouldn’t have been the same.
I couldn’t help but notice that Makoto was wearing one of the first outfits Jimmy ever created, and it was ugly. I had Jimmy make Makoto a new outfit. This one was at least marginally better.
And of course, I couldn’t quit before playing with the Cow Plant. I even took some video! Here’s a hapless neighbor being devoured by the Cow Plant.
And Makoto milking the Cow Plant for its rejuvenating “milk.”
Goodbye, Sims 2 branch of the Alphabetti family!
