That man needs:
1) Less gaming 2) some fresh air 3) all of the above
Polska;4563314That movie was superb. Someone make this guy president!
Agreed. Pretty much the epitome of how gamers feel about stuff like this "only allowed three downloads" crap.
Nice collection. ^^ Can't wait to see all the add-ons EA will squeeze out of spore. ^^
Spore - The User created collections (but we charge you anyways) Spore - More fun with buildings (created by other users) Spore - Universe Creator kit (oh we did this ourselves, but it's a fullprice patch) Spore - mor cuddly creatures (for people with no skillz and big wallets)
So how does Spore check that you have installed 3 times? On the internet checking your CD key? A DVD-RW which is modified each time you install? Or can you only reinstall 3 times before you must reinstall windows? Because if thats the case it shouldn't really be a problem.
AFAIK it checks your hardware config and rechecks with the internet.
i played spore this weekend first creature i created turned out to be a gimp so i stopped playing it and started over on sunday morning around 1 am. my new creature was very successful and when i finally reached space age i though i might save the game and got to bed because the sun was blinding me through the windows and it was already 8 am ;)
spore definitely has its treats, but if you are not the creative guy who likes to create and design all the details and stuff on his creations it will get boring soon. gameplay in the non space phase is very repetitive. sure you can make a different creature all the time with their own skills etc but i dont know. it is not the type of game i would play long time.
for all those creative guys who also like to play the sims spore will be a blast but for the usual I-shoot-stuff-till-it-doesn't-move-guys it seems to loose fun very fast
I've got it too and I agree with Die Happy. Although, if you try setting yourself goals in the first phases of the game (like try and be a certain type of tribe) so that you need to watch what you're doing and keep an eye on your history timeline then it can be a bit less repetative. On the whole though I really like creative aspect of the game and the way the game evolves as your cell/creature/tribe/civilisation does with the scale getting bigger and bigger until you're roaming the whole galaxy. I didn't know about the whole 3 installs thing though - I've already put it on 2 of my PCs (so my wife and I can play it at the same time :p) :s If you're creative, I reccommend it.
The 2005 beta of spore was so much better than the current spore in every way that it's not even funny.
I didn't make it!
Spore is quite awesome. If at all possible I would suggest getting both eventually, as Far Cry 2 is also at the top of my list for games I want.
But yeah, Spore is a very different game to anything else. My favorite thing is seeing new creatures all the time. There's a nearly infinite number of planets to explore, a near infinite supply of downloadable content (anything anyone ever makes is free to download). However, it's a very different game, and not for everyone. It is not fast paced at all, and don't think it will be. It's mostly a game about exploration and long term choices.
For example, I started off as a herbivore which wasn't too different at the start, but things changed as I went along, and the choices I made effected my path later in the game. At the tribal stage I was a peaceful tribe that wanted to talk to other tribes, but the nearest tribes were all violent, so I had difficulties blancing a defense of my tribe while trying to get some allies to help me fight.
Space is great though. Each planet provides unique scenary, plants, animals, and technology, and going through every planet trying to find new lifeforms is actually a lot of fun. It's just not for everyone.
Well I bought Spore and I must admit I am quite hooked on it. Having created a species back in few years ago for a flash movie project I was working on but then ceased after running into complications and not enough time and energy... I re-created this species I invented in Spore and I am loving it so much. My regular sleeping rythm doesnt let me stay up awake over 12 at night but I installed the bugger yesterday and I played until 5 AM. I like it a lot, but I must admit I am concerned about the three installs only thing and the replay value of the game.
