Gamedaily's 10 favorite Disturbing Spore Creatures
« on: August 20, 2008, 07:41:48 am »
So I turn on my computer this morning and up pops the AIM home screen (yes, I still have AIM).  I usually close the window as soon as it opens, but the first screen has a Spore creature on it.  here's the article.

Pretty dang boring, no new information, and a lot of the descriptions are bad.  But what was really interesting was creature number 8...

Probably not a Goat, either.

Gaucean
A member of Spore's production team, Guillaume Pierre, came up with this ugly mother of a creature. Look at its mouth, for crying out loud. Are those hands or some deformed jaws? What's up with those other tentacles? It must have difficulty chewing meats and other hard foods. Still, it's not a creature you'd want to take to the prom -- or anywhere else for that matter."

Gosh.

Looks like they didn't spent much time in the Sporepedia either, if they're impressed by some of those creatures, and chose several creatures that weren't even created by users. Kind of lazy.

agreed... Hydros Naucean is one of the best creatures out there (I am biased towards the Gamingsteve community, but still) and a few of those listed in there I find creative or cool, not disturbing.

Hang on, they showed a "Gaucean"...
"A member of Spore's production team, Guillaume Pierre, came up with this ugly mother of a creature."

Is that a rip off of Hydro's Naucean?  :-\

It was essentially a rip off made for NASA or something, yea.

If those Gamedaily guys knew more about the Nauceans, they would probably appreciate it better.

The Gaucean was a ripoff of the real Naucean anyway.

Maybe I'm just hallucinating, but does the Mushoomite look like Sporn to anyone else?
