Woah, big suprise here then. ::)

Seems nearly every forum I end up on has one person that raves on and on how they despise muslims...
Yes we have fundamentilists. But so does every religion.

Islam is not a religion of slavery, infact its probably one of the more liberal ones. I love islam because there is a spirit of brotherhood and sisterhood that transcends race, gender, sexuality or most things. Although I get annoyed at the haters out there.. I can't blame them. The media has been so hell bent into making muslims be percieved as the "enemy" or "backwards". It's just a culture of fear provoking today that was used in the cold war over the "RED MENACE"

this is just a taster of the ignorance and hate I and most muslims living in America and europe face today; After september 11th - I was punched in the face. I was told that my family and my whole kind should be rounded up and shot in class while my teacher just sat there nodding. When I was praying in the mosque a group of "vigilantes" ran in and poured red paint over everyone... I had a friend that was commuting between the uk and Us.. who isnt muslim by the way. Just racially arab. She was shackled around her ankles and interrogated.. then got her visa refused.

Do I do such actions when I see the inhumanities the US has lavished on the muslim world?

As for logic? I take it youve never opened a Quran? Or read it with negative bias....
Islam is alot like Christianity and judism.  it's monotheistic.  It promotes morality. It denounces killing of innocents. It promotes peace.
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).

Wow, that's really cool! :o

Did you accumulate lots of autographs and stuff? On the rare occasion I do see celibrities completely by chance, I always get too nervous to ask them for an autograph in fear that they'd get mad, or just glare right through me.

Who were the worst divas/premadonnas? Like you here alot of stuff about celebrities making ridiculous demands, but I wonder if it's really true...

Spore: General / Re: Steve: Your thoughts on Will Wright
« on: May 10, 2005, 10:33:56 am »
I guess I must be more easy to please than most of you. The RTS element doesn't excite me much.. just the concept of being able to burn/pummel/pillage/obliterate thousands of villagers at the same time alone will make me buy the game.

And how can it be just a "dumbed down RTS" when Black and white 2 was never primarily one in the first place? It's clearly a GOD GAME, with some RTS features.

I'm no fan-boy and Black and white's buggy flaws have irritated me to the edge. But you can't deny than many people got alot of enjoyment from the interface free environments and the freedom to choose between good and evil.
 
As for the topic at hand. Will Wright is simply a genius, there is no question about it.

I just wish EA would lay off Maxis' back and stop gangraping "the sims" franchise for every drop of moolah. I'm the dumb  kind of sim addict that will dish out the doe each time an expansion pack get's doled out... but even I got very cynical, and somewhat annoyed when I heard "the sims 2" will be coming out on like every console.

The last wave of console versions of the game IMO were a joke... the reason for the disaster of the console version (look in any bargain bucket/preowned section at your local game retailer, It will be in there) and the  success of the PC version is simply custom content. The ability to customize everything to emulate your own, or somebody elses life.. and this was mainly achieved by fans using the internet.

I'm so happy Will himself has learnt this important lesson and is making it an integral feature in SPORE. It seems he may even lead a kinf of revolution in the industry, where we will see more and more games allowing users to define their own narratives/enviroments.

It seems a shame to be able to control fauna but not flora... I always thought the cooler aspects of the star wars universe wasn't just the creatures, but all the detail such as plant life, geology ect...

I would like to believe that we would at least have some control over the appearance, otherwise the planets we create may not have a great deal of diversity. Also the name itself.. spore is quite suggestive, even if it isn't the "official name" yet. After all most living breathing organisms do not reproduce by spores.. thats how plants do things.

And if we have a level of control over the atmosphere our creatures breath then it would be silly not to include plants some how.

Just my two cents anyway.

Just do what us poor people do and wait it out, I haven't seen too much of a kick and scream about them.. and am sure it won't be long till sony drops the price.

The benefit of those spoiled little rich kids is usually after a week they get bored with them, which means that if your really lucky you might see a few being sold second hand in the local paper.. for nearly half the price. Have seen this with the gameboy advance, the sp, and even the ds more recently.

I always cringe when I see the title of the ad "unwanted present".. I always imagine some screeching unsatisfied brat, punishing his/her father for making the incorrect attempt to please them.

« on: May 10, 2005, 09:37:04 am »
Okay, I know there are threads out there with what there first creature/race will look like and do.. but this ones a little different.  Due to the enormous time on my hands this week and the fact that I'm just well.. a nerd, I thought it would be cool to paint a creature Id want to make in spore.

So this thread is for posting your visual  ideas/concepts for creatures.

Am really itching for this game!  ;D

He is a herbivore called a BOSh. Not sure why.  ???

It looks very pretty.

I wonder if your base/whatever grows kind of organically rather than sending people to make specific buildings.  it looks too incredibly detailed to for that level of micromanagement.

 if it is organic - that kind of thing really appeals to me, as I always want my cities or bases to be so much more than they are in most rts games. And the fantasy/scifi thing gives it a really interesting twist.

Books / Anyone read any Haruki murakami?
« on: May 10, 2005, 09:14:04 am »
Wow.

Just finished "Kafka on the shore" today and what can I say? Its incredible.

Ive never come across a surrealist author before, and the way Haruki weaves his words touched me so deeply.. (even if it was translated from Japanese with little annoying americanisms such as "JEEZ LOUISE") The story itself is utterly bizarre but not to the extent where you get irritated (ala David lynch)... it leaves you in a strange kind of trance when you put the book down and that itself is very difficult to do.

This is the first book Ive read from the author so far and am definately going to collect the rest.

Anyone read any of his works? or can recommend a similar author?
