Wiki is saying that it's due in October. I'm seeing the chances of a Dual release just slipping away, if they aren't already gone. :(

I just hope we can get Aspyr in there soon afterwards to get it out as close behind as possible.

I wonder how long those of us who will be dual booting in XP on our Intel Macs (with full X1600 drivers by then) will wait for this one to be announced? Some have said a year, other say 6 months. Let's see.  :huh:

Hmm. It was down for a while last night, then reappeared for several hours in the evening (EST, I was editing the Wiki), and is now gone again. Weird. Traffic? Hacking? Who knows.

for the whole internet thing, its just going to be downloading content from a server. and im guessing that its far more dynamic and varied than in simcity4. anyway, at worst itll just mean that theres a mac only implementation, which youll barely even notice as being any different from the PC implementation.

Huh? I am dual booting already and know (from sources) that a fix for the X1600 video driver issue is close at hand. So soon enough for some games that have never made it to the Mac. Otherwise, you lost me.  ;)

hey gents,

a small taste of the Spore's evolutionary gameplay can be found in a neat Flash game called "Flow". you start as a three-celled creature floating around in a pond and slowly grow and evolve by eating other creatures and diving ever deeper into the pond.

i found the game relaxing without being boring, and the gameplay just sort of gradually emerges without there being any obvious complexity on the surface. it also has a nice aesthetic austerity, with calm music and clean, simple graphics that intuitively communicate form and function. its worth a quick look if for no other reason than it reflects the "new values" that are emerging in game design theory that the industry is going to shift to simple, pick-up-and-play games designed for mass-market appeal. this is the whole premise of the new Nintendo Revolution console for example, and a lot of big companies are starting to wake up to the potential of games that are cheaper to produce and break from the "Yet Another Madden Sequel" syndrome.

I wish it would save where I was at... But yeah, cool game. A little slow at first.

Agreed. Cool little relaxing "game."

This last video includes scenes from another Mario game (the first 1/4th),
Sin Episode 1 (2nd 1/4), some Nintendo game (3rd 1/4) and an interview
with Wright on about the last fourth of it with some Spore footage.

Looks promising.

i think spore is going to be one of those games where if excecuted properly it will "Kick Ass" but if not it will "fail Miserably"

Being a newbie, I will be kind. I suggest you learn some forum etiquette and keep such comments nonexistent. Irregardless how old any news is, when people want to post about it, and bring it up, they should be allowed without scrutiny.

The only exception to this rule we try to observe here, is avoiding posting the exact same news at the same point in time over and over in multiple threads.

This may be old news, but it is however new to the person who posted it, and doesn't really need to have their face rubbed in their doings by others. A more tactful approach, if one is so adamant of doing so, is to reinforce their enthusiasm, but also quote some links to other posts of the same topic.

one of the guys here said the same thing.  it looks cool, and may be for the first couple times it is played, but then fail.   My only fear is that some parts of the game will be great and we will want more to it, then others will be lacking and to finish the game or continue will drag.

The concept to having your world uploaded to one massive unlimited universe and downloaded and added by all players is very cool.  True multiplayer would be a big plus also.

all and all it looks really cool even if it ends up being a game that is not played as much.  It may be a game that is only booted-up to show other gamers how cool it is. :lol:

Look a few topics below..."Will Wright's SPORE."  Also shows up if you click on "search" and type in "spore."  :)  I'd expect this topic to be merged, but it's certainly a worthy topic.  At the very least, it should make a killer "sandbox" game, where you can just mess around for a while and see what sort of things you can come up with.
