Spore (PC)
« on: February 13, 2008, 10:44:59 AM »
Finally there has been a release date set for Spore, September 7, 2008.

There was a promotional video put up today.

I have been waiting for this game for almost 2 years now

I remember seeing a few screens for this quite some time ago, and it did look pretty good... I will probably pick up a copy when it comes out and let you all know (not that you are interested :P )

God damnit! 

Well at least I'm done with school, so now it won't make me fail.  I still predict that this will be amazingly detrimental to my life in general if I'm ever allowed to get my hands on it.

I was hardcore addicted to Sim City 2000 back in the day.  This game fascinates me on the same level.  Will Wright seems to know just how to get me hooked.

I agree that his games are enticing... Once you start playing you don't realise that you have been playing for 15 hours straight, and it is now in the dead of night...

I'm thinking that Lanky will be off to his local gaming emporium to harass them about pre-ording this puppy very soon...

Now that you have a release date you are more likely to be able to do it...

The Trial Version of the Spore Creature Creator has been released. It is currently available on the Spore website but it has a pitiful download speed since it is getting hammered from people around the world. So I've mirrored it to the lankyland servers.

PC Version
Mac Version

I think the coolest part is when you create a video you can upload it to Youtube in the game program...

I don't remember.  I reinstalled Direct X last night.  I'll see if that does the trick.

It was DirectX.  It works now.  I like it.  It's just enough of the program for me to have some fun, but with enough missing to make me need the real thing.  Damn you bastards.

mwhahaha

They were very clever in the way they released it. Two big upsides.

1. People get a taste for the game and know they need to have it when it finally comes out.
2. They don't have to waste time creating filler creatures for the game world. When you create creatures you can share them online.

You can get the free version of the Creature Creator which has limited parts or you can pay $10 and get more creature parts to play with

Yeah, after hearing about the overboard DRM on this thing, I will absolutly not be shelling out money for this thing. 

Hey dumbasses, your anti piracy scemes just put this game at #1 download game ever.  Is anyone watching this?  Hello?  Stop putting your fucking DRM all over shit that you want people to pay money for.  Does anyone look at the data?  It's not working.  It's having the opposite effect.

...aaand class action suit.  Yes!!!

The filing is asking for a $50 refund on the game, plus damages for malicious software being installed on the hard drive.

Amazing.

EA has already lost an estimated $25m in sales due to illegal downloads and now this.  I love it when the system works.

I used to think piracy was bad, because I first heard about it by people who didn't understand it. I understand piracy now. Piracy is good.
