Spore is a beautiful game, no denying it... Then again, I said these same arguments when E3 rolled around.

Maybe the Sporons are the ones that got dumbed down?  ;D

Does it seem ironic to anyone that this picture has the Spore sign in German but the creature editor parts and such in English?

No. The convention is in Germany.  :P

I can, but I have good eyes. And I mean it's ironic that the editor is in english.

It's not ironic.

Quote
iro·ny
n.
1 : a pretense of ignorance and of willingness to learn from another assumed in order to make the other's false conceptions conspicuous by adroit questioning -- called also Socratic irony
2 a : the use of words to express something other than and especially the opposite of the literal meaning b : a usually humorous or sardonic literary style or form characterized by irony c : an ironic expression or utterance
3 a (1) : incongruity between the actual result of a sequence of events and the normal or expected result (2) : an event or result marked by such incongruity b : incongruity between a situation developed in a drama and the accompanying words or actions that is understood by the audience but not by the characters in the play -- called also dramatic irony, tragic irony

Besides, it's hardly surprising that they didn't bother to translate the game just for this. It's not as if there's even that much text in it.

New video!

It's basically the ol' E3 demo, except it's being given by somebody on the team other than Will Wright.  It has more of a behind-the-scenes feel to it, and he talks about some stuff Will didn't.

Namely, he says you start off as a slug crawling out of the primordial ooze.  While this doesn't CONFIRM anything, it implies the game starts you off on land as a slug-like creature.  But, one could also view that statement as a sea-slug.  The "crawling out" bit implies to me being on land, anyways.
Looks like even I was being optimistic with a March 07 release date...

Good find Cyrus. Watching it now.

Ok, I don't think that's meant to be litteral. The Primordial Ooze wasn't necessarily an ocean, and that's the issue. Ocean creatures aren't out yet, not just yet...

In the new videos, the speaker talks with pride about how the game knows where the head is and how it tracks your mouse movements... but in fact what is moved is the part with the mouth. Surely moving the part with the eye would make more sense?

(shrug) define head.
But yea, I would imagine moving the part with the eye would make more sense. Moving the part with the mouth seems to serve no purpose.
