Spore: General / Re: Who here ISN'T exicted about Spore?
« on: July 25, 2006, 01:53:03 pm »
I was extremely excited when I first heard about it back at GDC 05. As in Hopping in little circles making short barking sounds. (I think they call that barking mad). Now its less pronounced. More of a slow burn in the back of my mind that occasionally flares up.


I know this shouldn't bother me, but it does: The fact that so many other people are new. They came when there was a lot of information out (there's about 3x as much now as there was when I joined) so they haven't had to savor the GDC 05 video for over a year, watching it over and over and catching every subtlety in Will Wright's voice. So naturally, they don't understand some of the facts about Spore (Ginseng, for example), and don't appreciate others (the people who expect this to be the literal end-all game that no improvements could be made to. God couldn't make this game any better, and it will be out 4 months earlier than any official word has told us it will be) and those people will be sorely disappointed and even angry when the game comes out and it's not everything they hoped.

This is very true - Spore won't be everything everybody expects it to be. Some people will be severly dissapointed. It's somewhat likely that some of things in the game will, in fact, be controled by a stat slider which could be maxed. This wouldn't ruin the game for me (it would be a bit of a dissapointment, though), but it would for some of these people who think that Spore is going to be a full, completely accurate universe simulation.

However, Spore will have a very large impact on the game industry, and this is very exciting in itself. I'd agree with scorpia11 - Spore is creating it's own genre: "Universe Creators". Now, that is one genre I would like to see take off. As well as that, proceedural content creation could be a real godsend to indipendant game developers, because it would allow them to rival the big guys in terms of content, provided that they have/are a good enough programmer to pull it off.

Seriously, if that's your attitude I'm not surprised. Stop being bitter and contribute, and you will become popular. If you're not going to bother then frankly you should stop whining.
I had a creeping feeling that what I said would be misinterpreted. You have me completely wrong, what I meant was that it seems that the fanfic is 'over', so to speak. NOT the oh-so-common-among-idiots bitterness towards the well-established races of the forum.

Call me crazy, but I'm glad it's comming out late, in some ways. Why? Because the Spore Fanfic Universe will die when Spore itself comes out, unless we seperate the entire dealie from Spore and make it into an entirely different site and an entirely different service. Then again, it appears to be dead already, so yeah, I guess this is a little dissapointing.  :P

Because I created the thread and its actually meant to be a reboot of the fanfic universe to allow people to be creative without being bogged down by roleplaying and simulate what the forum was alike before all the RPing started.
Actually, I think it's more likely to give people the impression that the entire fanfic universe was said and done with, and that no matter how hard they work on their new creature it won't become popular or essential in the storyline of the universe (and these things appear to be true, to a moderate extent).

I feel that I got in too late for my race to ever really matter (that's not quite the way to put it, more like this fanfic universe is dying), and I'm a lazy bastard, so I don't think I'll continue with my race.

I've got to give a thumbs up to Aegis, that was very good. Are you going to write the humanoidism article too?

Hey, thanks!  ;D I might, given enough boredom. So, that was really that funny?

Wow, these guys are awesome. They remind me somewhat of Vortigaunts from Half-Life.

Anyway, great job!

If moderators delete "zombified" threads, would that make them zombie slayers, or maybe paladins?

We could do a lot of highly awesome Spore-like stuff, most of which would probably be a complete pipe dream and never get finished. :P

Seriously though, think SMALL...

And Myshuno, that requires $10,000 dollar servers and a $500 a month internet connection.

I personally believe that creating a creature concept is the most fun, important, and interesting part of taking part in this work of fiction. However, it seems that a lot of people have been creating creature concepts solely to roleplay with - like, say, most of the species in the DUP.

EDIT: That last bit isn't entirely accurate. I was actually thinking more along the lines of the Peskitorianals, the Necronomicon, and possibly the Anubians, but whatever.

if the whole galaxy ended up having to band together to stop the Nauri threat that would be tre awsomo

I haven't exactly been following the RP threads lately, so sorry for asking this, but who exactly are the Nauri?

Some people love the idea, some people hate it. How about an option that you can enable or disable?

Please, everyone, GET THE HELL BACK ON TOPIC. His text is readable, we know what it says, why should we complain?

Anyway, this sounds somewhat inspired by the old RPG Maker community games that were made, such as DarkPriest's RPGMaker Story. Is the plot going centered around the fanfic universe, or is it going to be a story about us, the Spore community? I personally favor the latter. Either way, I definitely want to be involved in the project. I know an intermediate amount of C++.

If it is about us, please, let's be creative and not use Will Wright getting kidnapped as the plot. :P
