Spore: General / Re: Hybrids?

Yeah I'm kind of imagining if this is a feature it will perhaps be integrated later in game.  Like when your nation of creatures begins to become more and more hi-tech, they develop something called a "gene splicer" for research purposes.

In creatures 2, albiet a not very good example, you could breed your creatures together ect.. but later in the game you could fine a gene splicer where you could create hybrids between two different species.

Half the time you creature died because the genetics were unstable... but it was a lot of fun seeing what frankensteins you could come out with!

Apparently according to Gamespot's rumour control it was created as a protest against the short life span of consoles.

This posted was posted by the person claiming to be it's creator:
"Commerciality forces companies to put out new consoles every 2 or 3 years with the only intent being to erase the limits (set by current consoles) for game developers, This does not allow game developers to let their imagination run wild and delight us (the gamers) with transcendent new games,"


personally, I really am at a loss to how this could be a protest of any kind. If this guy/gal was trying to raise cyncism towards the lifespan, I would say he/she really did this opposite. It's only tickled peoples imaginations and made them look forward to the future of next generation gaming, as that advert for PS9 did.

I can only hope that this person had some kind of college project where this was to be handed in, because quite frankly if it's not... this person is wasting the great talent they have.

Everything Else / Re: Religion

In islam, the possibility of Aliens is pretty much there.

It refers god as the "Lord of the worlds" in plural, and there are some hadith where G-D showed muhammed different worlds with races and people who were far more advanced.

this is pasted from a website on the matter.


In Islam, the universe, which includes the whole of space and the innumerable stars and planets within, is not static.

The Quran says that God is "steadily expanding the universe". In human reckoning, this is taking place over billions and billions of years.

On the formation of stars and planets, the Quran points to a "Big Bang" or disintegration theory. It says "the heavens and the Earth were joined together (as one unit of Creation) before God cloved it asunder".

This reference to the unitary origin of the universe anticipates scientists' views that the universe originated as one entity from one single element.

Subsequently, it separated into nebulae, galaxies and solar systems, with individual parts breaking away progressively to form new entities, such as stars, planets and other heavenly bodies. Our solar system is perhaps "the lowest heaven adorned with ornaments - the planets".

The universe is in indescribably so huge and contains numerous solar systems, each perhaps bigger than ours. A such, is it not possible for some far-flung planet ot planets to be conducive for some form of life to exist?

A verse in the Quran reads: "And among God's signs is the creation of the heaven and the Earth, and the living creatures He has scattered through them."

When seen in the light of modern science, this verse certainly points to the fact that life in some form is scattered through some of the millions of heavenly bodies in space, and not just confined to Earth.

According to Islam, man's role is a continuous fact-finding mission for progress. He can explore space and use it to his advantage, such as sending up satellites for communication purposes and space stations for exploration.

The Quran says: "See you how God has made subservient to you whatsoever is in the skies and showered on you His blessings, both manifest and hidden."

Islam does not hinder progress as long as it is carried out without harming other human beings and creation.

Now let us consider this: Just as "primitive life" ended on Mars billions of years ago, would it not be possible for life to disappear from Earth too, one day?

The Quran says: "If you can pass beyond the zones of the heavens and the earth, pass you."

Perhaps before life on Earth also ends as Mars' did, it would be exciting to discover if life exists outside our small planet.


In Islam, Science tends to be attached with the religion. They arn't really separate issues. Like christians we don't per-say believe we evolved from apes - however we don't believe the heavens and earth were created in seven days, and we acknowledge that the first human beings looked very different to how they look today. Evolution is never dismissed. Throughout history Islam has always been a religion that has promoted scientific, medical, and technological advancement.

It's sad that in the 21st century so many seem to be regressing from "wahabi" influence.

 I could paste more examples If anyone would like.

Ouch! what can I say... I'm torn.

I so want to believe this is real, but... I don't know. It all feels to good to be true, more like next-next gen gaming or further. But why the hell would somebody go to such an effort to stir up a hoax? Could be some kid's college project or something.

And didn't that running mario at the end look a bit err, Skinny? Maybe he's cut out the pasta and opted for a low carb lifestyle.. :D

If this is by the grace of god, true. Then yeah, it's a revolution that would devour the other consoles and dominate the market.

Console Games / Re: How much of a completionist are you?
« on: May 15, 2005, 04:17:42 pm »
I tend to fall into the habit of having several nearly completed games at one go. I did this with Silent hill 2 - 4 (PC) and ended up getting very muddled up with the storyline indeed. ???

Love Silent hill though.

I doubt ANYONE was offended by it. But it was very nice of steve to have consideration.

"I would really be interested in what aspect you find utterly "illogical".. do you have a specific surah or hadith? (if you even know what that means)."

Anyway let's get back to the topic at hand. The sheer lameness of this thread.
Unless your joking that is... which I kind of hope so.

Oh nothing, except you went a tad quiet when I mentioned hadith and surah. (yes google that now, there you go)

Just as you find it futile to argue with a "brainwashed thrall" so do I.

I guess I wasn't as reactionary and JIHADI on your ass as you hoped. Just do me one favour and read the damn book before you preach your own divine wisdom over it.

You seem really ignorant.

That thread has been locked.

Regardless, I think this is a lame thread. No matter who started it.

Another great and totally useful post by Demorgora...

Please, if you think the game is a tired and useless concept... go think up your own FPS (as if that genre isn't tired ::)) and leave us alone. Yes I may seem hostile. But I really do not appreciate being referred to as a "brainwashed thrall" by somebody who knows very little about me.

And before you attempt to, don't bother using the word "asinine" in an insult yet again; it just makes you look like you try too hard.

Spore: General / Spore may not be called "spore" after all...
« on: May 14, 2005, 09:26:59 am »
but rather, SimSpore..

according to the news at http://sporeworld.net

"Whois.net searches for spore reveal that EA games have purchsed the domain name simspore.com"

I kinda hope it will be called SimSpore, putting "sim" on the front of everything is like Will's signature :)

On the other hand this could mean nothing at all.  ???

Spore: General / Hybrids?
« on: May 13, 2005, 04:02:09 pm »
Did will specifically mention the possibility of creature hybrids at the gdc?

I am really hoping this is an aspect that isnt overlooked.. I mean how cool would it be to not only swap creatures with your friends.. but also have kids with them? (well, err in the game that is).

I'm speculating that it could be some kind of technology that gets discovered later in the game... I mean with all the math working the animation out - it doesn't seem like a total impossibility. Wev'e also seen it in the sims 2 with genetics, so hopefully this feature will be included.

I mean "impossible creatures" royally sucked but I have to admit, it was supremely enjoyable to see what a Spermwhale/baboon would look like. :D
