Hey this is one of the few cases where I'm be glad to be EA's whore.

For once its nice to have a game thats just about creating, without having to keep track of numbers or deal with an AI trying to kick my ass. It's $10 well spent.

Yeah I agree which is why I refuse to buy it also. I tried the demo and I don't know now if I am going to get it now. I was excited for the game but the demo turned me off due to the creatures. All the creatures look too cartoony almost like a Monster, INC style and I have yet to see any creatures that excite me.

It also doesn't help that EA is now banning people who make creatures that they don't like so now not only are you doing EA's work for them, but you could get fired if you make something that doesn't meet their standards.

I hope you realize that with the demo you are only getting like 10% of the features of the normal creature creator, We must not be looking at the same creatures, because I have seen some straight up scary looking creatures.

EA is banning people that are making cock monsters. Come did you really want a world full of cock monsters running around?

Can you make the body fatter? Every time I adjust the body width, it turns into a snake-like object and I can't get my creature to fatten up again.

Use the mousewheel on each vertebrae.

I realize that the demo only has 10% of the features, but I am also talking about the ones I have seen on youtube and various articles. Even the ones made by Maxis in the game don't look that impressive to me. I would love to be wrong though so if you have some links to scary looking monsters please post them.

They also banned PC Gamer's Boobalicious monster, just as another example. I would rather have the choice. Just like I am supposed to have the choice if I find someone who makes cool monsters, I can subscribe to them. For all we know, next EA will start banning people who create characters from other games like the guy who made Bowser.

Here is the Boobalicious monster.


EDIT: Also originally Alex Hutchinson said you would have the option and the ability to filter out content you don't want. "You can have a penis car flying into a vagina house. If you want to live in penistown, that's fine. We'll give you the filter to ban it out."

Well many of the creatures in sporepeida are from other games, so unless they start banning about 20-30% of its population, I don't expect that happening.

There are some really realistic creatures over at gamingsteve.com

(I saw a spider like creature/youtube, that pretty much scared the crap outta me)

btw, I have about 9 creatures. Most of them are pretty crappy. I only just figured out how to make creatures smaller with the mouse wheel, also, I am using the free edition.

found out you can increase/decrease size with the up and down arrows, and + or - for the zoom.

Good luck!

Will Wright was at Comic Con and showed off the later section of the game, when your civilization becomes space faring. Suffice it to say that the scope of this game is unreal.

Well Spore's gone gold, and it will be released September 7th in America.
Bad news though:

No Demo For Spore, but it will Have DRM

Eurogamer did an interview with Lucy Bradshaw of Maxis, who talks about a bunch of Spore-related stuff:
Nextstep: What kind of anti-piracy measures have you taken to try and stop Spore appearing in the wild?

Lucy Bradshaw: We do have copy protection, it is a necessary part of our biz, but we've worked to make it something that does not punish the legit owners. You need to authenticate once at the first install. This happens online. You can install on three separate computers and you do need to register for the online features.
That's pretty much sold me on not buying the game.

Same here. Based on my experience in the creature creator I was already disappointed and I don't buy games that don't offer demos. This is particularly true where every preview that I have read complains that EA has yet to show how you transition between the different game types.

Yeah, copy protection blows, but I don't care. I'm buying the game.

Same here. I really hate DRM, but this game deserves my money.

So I can have it on 3 machines or only install it 3 times. If it is three machines can 3 people pay for one game and install on each machine?
