  • So... anybody tried SPORE yet?



    This was supposed to be the biggest game launch of the year, and I'm thinking about downloading it. Anybody tried it yet?

        You play computer games much? It's supposed to be the second coming of the messiah, Will Wright.

        Oh wait, they've just announced it will soon be here for iPhone. Do you know it now?

            Dude. It's going to be available on the iPhone.

            The concept is amazing. Not the game itself, Wright is trying to create an entirely new genre: "Massively Single Player Games". You play Spore by yourself, but your creation is in an interconnected universe. If you create a species or some development, there's a possibility that I'll encounter it on my world, even if I've never met you or have any idea who or where you are.

            If it works, it'll be the most groundbreaking game since... well... maybe The Sims?

              I can't see playing video games on my iPhone as being even remotely enjoyable. It sounds like a major pain in the ass. I can't even get my stubby fingers to text message people correctly - have to back up and correct shit all the time.

              Sounds like an interesting premise, though. I may try this out on my mac.

                  I had to give up that interest. I'm married.

                    Did I mention that you can create worlds full of giant penis-creatures?

                      It ain't too great. I think there are folks out there who'll like this, but I'm not one of them

                        Just dull, or repetitive, or not worth the money...?

                          Just feels like there's some lacking depth to things, and the folks I see who are really enjoying it are folks who like to use the creature and vehicle creators (and seeing that content in-game) more than the folks who are looking for actual gameplay.

                          It's a very "shallow" feeling game, like there's not a lot going on under the hood which is very odd for a Will Wright game. I'm pretty bored with it.

                            Yeah, that's good feedback. Sounds a little like the feeling I got the first time I played Black and White. Thanks.

                              I remember reading some article about "Sporn" which I think the above cartoon eludes to with people creating penises and giners as their characters.
