the inevitable is out in force.
« on: June 13, 2008, 11:59:41 pm »
on my last search of the word penis in sporepedia (I had to check), there are already three creatures that have made their way onto the 'pedia.  I expected it, but I figured at this point only real fans would have it, not just stupid troublemakers.  I'd post the pictures just to prove my point, but some are actually realistic enough to get me banned.

We've seen them and in fact archived the ones that even have been removed from Sporepedia. :)

It's become a flood now. With over 2000 creatures, penises are popping up all over the place. And that's not all; if you can name anything that would titillate a 13-year old mind (regardless of actual physical age) it is now in the Sporepedia.

I am amazed that they never put in a word censor for the naming alone, frankly.

They are really going to have to do something proactive if Spore is to avoid being dragged through the mud on the news as "New game allows children to see entire -worlds- of obscenity! Film at eleven!"

I recommend to Maxis and EA:

1. Add a basic obscenity filter to every area that any player can type anything at all.

2. Do the above very, very quickly.

3. Get some sort of prepared statement ready just in case the excretion hits the fan.

Good point Jenny.

I have a little brother who is nine years-old, and would like to play Spore. As his older brother, I care about him, and I do not want him to get exposed to the products of the "OMG I HAZ MAEDZ A B0N3R!!!11"-type minds of the punks making the blatantly genitalia-shaped creatures.

if he doesn't learn that on the spore pedia, he'll learn it in school you know.. the only thing against this is to force creativeness with a slightly raised voice :)

I'd rather have him learn it from a human biology website or some other educational website (like I did when I was a bit younger), or just learn it from school.

Do you understand anything about traumatization?

I, of course, am not his parent, but I care about him.

It seems like, though there are loads of creatures with "penis" tags, only about two or three of them actually look like penises.

I'm not sure why you're giving them attention. They are probably running here to see if they get mentioned and how upset people get about it. Why not just report it and move along?

The game will probably be rated Teen for this very reason. It's online and you can't fully control what people put up there. I just have a question for people: Are you going to let the game randomly put creatures into you game? I've already decided that I'll just find some people who make good sporecasts and subscribe. This way I can still be surprised in game by new creatures but I probably won't get crap creatures.
My predictions for Spore.

1) No water creatures at initial release. I was right about this even when the fanboys were denying it.
2) No composite limbs at initial release. eg. Buttface; attaching a limb to a limb to... Update: Prediction was incorrect. Buttface is in!
3) Spore will outsell the Sims and be the best selling game of all time until something better comes along.

I just realized.  This could be the sad, sad result of piracy.  What if the EA people say to the ESRB "Only we have added creatures to the sporepedia."  So then just as a test, the ESRB creatures search penis, and then rate it AO.

I would like it if you could mark a checkbox that says "NSFW" or something as sometimes people just want to share these things with their friends.

Who cares anyway, it's not like it's an actual penis image or anything.  It can't really truly look like a penis anyway. Let's start outlawing hot dogs and Popsicles now also.

And what exactly do penis and vagina creatures have to do with piracy? Smoke funny substances much?

I think that's something none of us want :-X

Mother: By the way I'm your mother
Kid: OH GOD NO

EDIT: That's where it becomes rape if you were wondering.
