Curse you! I was going to make the topic! Anyway, yes, yes it is. And I'm getting it then! The Galatic Edition, too!

I'm trying to think of a main race to use. I was thinking a race of war-worshiping Yoshis. Yeah... there's an idea, right there.

Heh. I was wondering when someone would make this topic. I've been playing Spore for the past two days ^^ It's awesome so far, although I haven't gotten past the Creature Phase yet. My Spore Account name is FelixAlexander, in case anyone wants to know.
Oh, and btw...



I made MetaKnight :>

Wow. After breakfast (I slept in, it's 10:20 here), I am going to walk to the nearby mall and buy it. It was meant to be a birthday present for me. That, and mario kart wii.

Well, it's their game, and you're just putting together 3D parts the game creators made, so that's not surprising. Though I'm assuming that just means that you can't do stuff like trying to put them into a game or make money off them or whatever.

I think that means they own anything that you upload to their system. Or at least that's what it should mean. No one should be able to own the content that you create for your own use. And if they try to say they do, I would think that would be unenforceable.

I bought Spore today but I haven't had a chance to play it yet. I just got home. But the cover and manual look great!

So... I spent the entire day playing Spore. It's awesome.

I ran across a few of my creatures, plus Sonic, Knuckles, Silver, Fox, Falco, and oh yeah... EPIC KIRBY.

I think I'm going to have to buy it next time I go to a shop.

And the 'they own your stuff' thing is probably also related to how all your stuff is distributed to anyone on the internet, so by agreeing to the license, you're agreeing to let them do that.

Amazon, I believe.

Oh, and Amazon also made me find out that the game installs a SpyWare-like DRM protection system thingy that has no uninstaller. -o_-o Luckily, there's other ways to get rid of it, but it reinstalls itself when you run the game, so that's kind of worrying.

Default Re: Spore!

I've been playing Spore for hours. I made it to the tribal stage before feeling I needed to take a break. It's quite a learning curve. I was playing a carnivore called "Mouthy" so I had to pretty much kill everything I encountered. It didn't give me much time to examine all the amazing creatures that we encountered. But a lot of them were very impressive, and much more detailed than my bare-bones predator guy. Now that I have achieved the tribal stage I should be able to go back into the creature creator and go directly to creating different kinds of creatures and experiment with that for a while. It would be fun to see various creatures that I've designed interacting, but so far all I've seen are mostly Maxis creatures being eaten by my little pack of savage carnivores. But it's still loads of fun.

Default Re: Spore!

After spending about 4 hours, all spread out over the entire day, playing spore, this is what I have to say about the phases I've seen

Cellular phase: Very actiony and fun, but way to short! Also, a little hard to control. The editor isn't that great, but this is one of the most actionyest yet.

Creature phase: Not as good as I thought. The creature creator is EVERYTHING here. The main problem is A: Too hard to socialize, B: Enemies are too easy, C: Epics should be weaker. D: Everybody is at a nest, meaning it's not teeming with enemies. Only around nests.

Tribal phase: Quite fun strategy game, but again, too easy. You can gather food quite quickly. I don't like how you can only gather food from each corpse only once. You should still only get to use the corpse once, but it should give you much more food

Civ phase: Fun editor, but I didn't get to try anything else yet.

Agreed. Cellular phase should've been longer :-/
Quote:
A: Too hard to socialize
Not really. It depends on which parts you pick; proper singing and dancing abilities should make it quite easy to socialise with most creatures. BTW, "impressing" babies is easier than adults. Oh, and when you can add more creatures to your pack, they can help you socialise with others.

B: Enemies are too easy
Can't say anything about this since I've never fougth back.
Quote:
C: Epics should be weaker.
You're not supposed to attack/kill epics, so no, they shouldn't be.
Quote:
D: Everybody is at a nest, meaning it's not teeming with enemies. Only around nests.
Not true. Not sure what difficulty you're playing on, but even on Easy difficulty, I have encountered (and been attacked by) hostile carnivores pretty far away from their nests.

Also, I'm still in the creature phase. Meh. Might be because I'm spending more time in the creature editors than the actual game.
But that's reasonable, considering they allow me to create stuff like this:

I got killed by an Epic Omega metroid

Yeah, I should probably make a new account on a harder difficulty, but I'll finish this first.

I got Spore on Suunday. I'm enjoying it, and the creators are great. my problem is having to get all the parts agan wen you go back to the creature phase. I've reach the space age, and I am loving it. Pity about having to pay for al the tools. The Civ. phase was one my favourites, mainly besause my Battle Foaters (Battle Floaters are metal cubes supported by blimps with ray guns(Forget Physcis! I have Spore!)) got killed by an Epic, so in revenge I gadget bombed it. The "win the phase" button you get from six cities is a bit over powered, but it saves time. So, next goal: Galactic Centre!

If you want my stuff, my Spore name is the same as my one here. The Mini Hyp, from Hypexia are my main ones, with rapidly developing Sharpos are my second play through. They made me realise you need to find parts, just use the creator from the Make menu.

And one last thing: You can kill Epics in the creature Phase for an acheivement. This is just mean on people who need everything.
