I'm sure 99 percent of you will flame me, but I'm really hoping for a console port.

Is it possible to create giant mechs though?

That will happen for sure. EA has already announced DS port. It's just matter of time. I'm gonna buy PC version.

Well it's coming out for the DS, so I don't think a console version is out of the question.

Too bad Will Wright works for evil EA. I've heard that he has complete freedom to do whatever he wants. But still, EA logo on one of the most innovative game, will sure hurt my eyes.

Get over it. Everything I've read about this game (and I've read a lot) indicates that he does indeed have complete freedom and control.

Here is one interesting slide from his team presentation (courtesy - GameSpot):



If this game has a scope like this slide is showing, we are in big treat. Expect putting hundreds of hours in Spore. For more: http://www.gamespot.com/news/6165667...s&subj=6165667

I didn't know about the molecular scale. The rest is pretty well known though. Watch Will's GDC presentation if you haven't already.

Not gonna flame you dude. You gave a valid reason (your PC != high-end), you're cool in my book.

It would be really great if Spore team decides to make Spore moddable. Does anybody have any information on this? There will be sooooo many things to to do in Spore with mods.

This idea ****ing COOL: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spore_video_game

Massively single-player

Wright calls the game a "massively single-player online game". Simultaneous multiplayer gaming is not a feature of Spore. The creatures, vehicles, and buildings the player can create will be uploaded automatically to a central database (or a peer-to-peer system), cataloged and rated for quality (based on how many users have downloaded the object or creature in question), and then re-distributed to populate other players' games. The data transmitted will be very small only a couple of kilobytes per item transmitted, according to Wright, (due to the aforementioned procedural generation of material).

If Will and his team be successful to implement his vision, this game will be a big milestone in game industry. On every aspects.

I'm highly pumped up for this game.

Much like B5's Earth Alliance ships, I'm quite fond of Earth ships being portrayed as ugly flying grey boxes.

That's because they put the weak point right on the surface of the station.

With the Death Star II they got smart. They put it inside the damn thing. Except that they just happened to get attacked while the station was only 2/3rd's done, so the weak point was still exposed. Still. Had it been finished, I assure you the Empire would have been smart enough to keep it protected this time.

BTW, where's the Death Star on that chart? (I assume it's way too big to even fit on the image.)

Accorting to Wikipedia the Death Star was 160 Kilometers in diameter. So that would be 9.15 times the length of the Executor Class ship on that diagram. That's a 20,000 pixel wide image. ;)

The only downside is that odds are one or more of those segments will fail to deliver, simply due to the sheer number. Hopefully they'll spend most of the time on the meatier civ segments and half-ass the "go eat some animals" part.

I'm almost positive the vehicle creation screen showed mech-like creations in one of the public demos.


Also: Holy shit @ molecular level.

Just scale, all is realtime.

And yeah, I also didn't know about the molecular stage either.

Spore Interview here (8 pages).

Interesting stuff. I've been kind of meh about this game, but when Will talks about it, for some reason I want to believe.

I'm just afraid it'll be like B&W, where there's really no point to the game.
