Default Spore

Spore came out this last weekend, and while it's not the sort of thing I usually go for, I have to admit, I'm very amused. You can get your immature kicks by making a disembodied dick that runs around and eats things; and then when you get bored with that after five minutes, you can indulge your 40k urges by creating an Ork or a Tyranid. Seriously, check it out... it's actually a lot of fun.

Once you make it to the final stage of the game yes, but in the first four you play on the same world and cannot alter it.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

Some people are incredibly inventive. i saw someone create a creature that looked like an XBOX360 controller, and i actually saw a creature that looked like two humans... well use your imagination.

On the subject of Rat Ogres:
But if we give them laser eyes and mounted guns, we'll have to bring in Clan Skryre, and everyone knows how much those limp-tailed snuff addicts overcharge.

It's a game I've wanted ever since the title was first breathed, but I admit I'm really really disapointed by gamers comments and reviews. The gameplay has been 'dumbed down' from the original concept videos (No possiblity of making an aquatic race, for one) and less of a sandbox nature. Though, some people are really enjoying it, and I imagine I would too. But I think this is a game to wait a few months for untill the patches.

The game is fantastic. While it is not a "sit down and slog-it-out for six hours in a row" kind of game, it is awesome to just pick up, play for a bit, and have a blast. Honestly, if you have a shred of creativity in you, you will not stop loving it.

Actually, I believe it has some awards or achievements for doing different things, and one of them is going from the first stage all the way up to the final stage in one go. (Something that takes about five or six hours if you don't rush it..)
