    This is really great. I'm having ridiculous fun re-directing streams around the levels.

    I was so fucking excited about Spore.

    So excited.

    And the character creator was released early and I made a million monsters! It was so cool!

    Then the game was not as cool.

    The single celled organism part was fun, and then the evolution part was good.

    Then it got shitty fast. Suddenly you're in space and the game just kind of stops trying. The message I got was basically "thanks for pay 55 dollars, now go fuck yourself".

    as soon as I heard that the game was "four mini-games" I knew that it wasn't going to live up to what was initially promised

    It was extremely difficult not to run around yelling I TOLD YOU SO when Spore came out.

    Spore was Black & White all over again, except that unlike Black & White it had some good bits.

    Looking back I'm not even really sure what WAS actually promised, besides making creatures that can work out walking no matter how retarded their creator

    In a friendly, high-speed presentation, Will Wright demos his newest game, Spore, which promises to dazzle users even more than his previous masterpieces. Here Wright encourages users to create not households, as in The Sims, or cities, as in SimCity, but the entire universe, from single-celled life forms to galactic physics. While guiding us through his mesmerizing beta, Wright shares his thoughts on Montessori schools, Darwinian theory and long-term thinking, emphasizing, throughout, that Spore is not so much a game as an opportunity for discovery — “an imagination amplifier.”

    From Dust looks fun and I will be purchasing it on my computer-mo-tron when it comes out.

    I too was burned on Black and White and Spore and hope for something better.

    A new world. A better world.

    EDIT: Hadn't really watched anything, but in the quick look they are picking up sand and making land bridges, and changing water flows and such. Yes. This is what I want.

    Had to quit Black & White when I realized I had just spent 10 minutes picking up my pet's poop.

    I made all my pets insane in Black and White. I tortured and rewarded them for the same acts and only allowed them to eat their own poop.

    Fuck off and die.

    For some reason, I loved to abuse the monkey pet the most. He was always just askin' for it.

    I ended up as a twisted evil monsterous death god child and my cow was a godly cow of epicly nice proportions. Somehow he worked out, with barely any attention from me being an evil self absorbed prick-god, how to rain on crops for food, didn't poop anywhere bad, made breeders at an acceptable level, did other useful chores and such. And on top of all that when I told him to go fight another god he would bust out the holy lightning if they didn't want to talk.
    My pet was better at the game than me.

    To be fair about Spore, it basically was what was promised.

    It just didn't live up to the crazy amount of speculation and day-dreaming about what the promises meant.

    Also the promises were made in vague language that sounded really cool, but was rather devoid of any meaningful information. Which I'm sure was intentional.

    I had good times with Spore. I think if they just made it a lot more sandboxy, and focused solely on the pre civilisation stages, it would have been a cultural force. As it was, I made a platypus with a top hat and antlers and called it a day.

    Fuck off and die.

    So I have an issue of Game Informer with a preview for Fable 3. After playing through the game I went back and read that preview. It was typical Molyneux bullshit hyping up all these crazy features and than the game just didn't live up to it. Especially the stupid "touch" function they couldn't stop talking about that just made it harder to do a fart or a fist pump.

    I bought the game when it came out and my nerdy friends at work laughed at me when I let that information slip. I got defensive about it, but that was before I realized how brief the game is leading up to the galactic portion.

    Centrism is just the cowardly way to be a bigot w/o being explicit about it.

    I enjoyed Spore the first time around but didn't touch it after that.

    I was tremendously disappointed by it, really, but that's really my fault for getting so worked up about it!

    Yeah, pretty much.

    It didn't really help there were two parts of it that were just really dumbed down versions of games I love.

    Peter Molyneux is like the abusive asshole boyfriend of the gaming world. One day, his band will hit it big and he'll show you just how much he really loves you and pay back all the rent money he owes. He promises he won't get drunk again and smack you around. This time he means it when he says he'll go see a therapist.

    But he'll never change. His games will never work right.

    This is so damn true. Fable was shite also.



    it only gets worse

    Man, was that really 2009? What the fuck?!
