Game companies often don't realize that todays games need to be based on simple but creative ideas, like tetris was. This is how the good games are built, and no hype is gonna help any game if it is not good. In contrary, too much hype can damage the game cause people will tend to have big expectations then, and when they loose that confidence once, company can have problems for next titles.

So true. Spore has been delayed each year since 2002 or something tongue.gif
So each time they delayed it, people were angry at first, then rumors and expectations came. So for each delay, people said "Oh my lord!! This game is gonna be awesome since they keep adding new stuff!!"

And now, well.... People have made rumors about it for so many years, that it just doesen't live up to anything we would have hoped for ^^

That's why I'm definetly not buying "Duke Nukem Forever" tongue.gif

Wise words my friend. Sadly it kinda goes with music and artists/bands that sellout. It just isn't the same listening to band whos put out their third album and are being played on the radio all the time. There was more excitement when they first where underground....or at least not super hyped.. If anyone needs personal examples from me, just ask... but then again I think everybody's been through it.

Can anyone tell me how is the online portion of the game "SPORE" working ? How does it look/work, what do you do there ? Is it something like WoW ? Can you describe it to me a little.. smile.gif

The online part of Spore is nothing else then the game downloading planets and creatures from other players.. tongue.gif
There's no communicating or anything. It just copies another persons stuff, and adds them as another race you can be friends with or exterminate tongue.gif

Hehe, exactly... "If" it comes out tongue.gif I wouldn't be surprised if they decided to just give up on "Duke Nukem - If Ever"-Oh, sorry... "Forever", I mean tongue.gif

ive got spore... unfortunately when i try to run it, it just gives me a black screen and dies.
that sucks.

Reminds of my B&W2 problem, check Spore forums and google for EA black screen or SecuROM. Sounds like SecuROM problem.

Sounds like spore is nothing great then. I was curious about it after their huge advertising campaign, and I thought it had real PvP. Glad I didn't get it then. Well it's 5 years since I bought my last computer so... laugh.gif guess I couldn't play it anyway. I might renew my PC when diablo III is released though.

Seriously.. this is one of best games I played in all times.. the options for creativity are endless... Btw. the first four phases - cell, evoultion, tribe and civilisation are more of.. just the one quarter of the game.. believe me.. the more time you will spent with your creations, the more you will love them tongue.gif Until you finally conquer whole space:P

guys.. just take a look at the friggin main menu.. the space... with tousands of stars.. and each stars has few planets.. that game is HUGE, with HUGE, maybe unlimited possiblilities.. its hyped.. but you got to give those guys some credit... they did a pretty good work..

Well I finally tried it at a friends place a few hours yesterday. And it's allright. But not a lot more. The creation part is brilliant but the gameplay is pretty anoying at times and the fact that it's easier to kill everyone instead of make friends tends to manipulate "lazy" players like me into doing just that. Which is a shame.

I haven't reached space yet but so far the game is good fun even though it get's pretty repetetive. I would never buy this game at it's current cost. But maybe rent it or get it later on.

Well... the motivation to do it the peaceful way is, that you gain.. medals or idkn how to call it, which result in your philosophy in space age, which determs your bonuses and special skills..

On the other hand, to some extent, this game is a life simulation.. and mostly, the aggresive way is the faster way to solve problem:P

haha. I knew someone would come up with that comment and I'm glad you did. But it still annoys me that it's so much easier to kill and conquer. well, guess I'm just lazy and spoiled. ;P

Well.. me personaly played herbivore and peacefull character till the last phase.. where it gets really annoying and time consuming..

WARNING SPOILER - select to make visible:


The most annoying thing is, that the strongest/final/quest/most advanced nation from middle of galaxy (dont know the name in english - I play Czech version...) keeps harrasing your planets till no end and when you are not used on attacking (have no battle bonuses from philosophy..) it gets VERY HARD on hard difficulty.. o' well sad.gif
