I noticed that robot creatures have different effects when attacking. bites make mechanical noises. more promenently, the plasma gun weapon has a white glow, instead of a purple one.

EDIT: hey, I just found why that is. the mechanical creatures have higher levels of certain weapons, so the plasma gun is blue (on one creature I made its green)

So robot parts are stronger? And in order to get them you have to buy a Dr.Pepper, which some people think are available everywhere in the same way that they think everyone has broadband?

I'm starting to see something here.

well, they have crappy stats in every other way. I just think that the robot parts made certain GA weapons stronger

I can't believe they are doing something stupid like this, rather than just putting it all in a patch for everyone to enjoy. Like anyone is gonna fall for this and buy loads of bottles of Dr.Pepper just to get all the parts...  >:(

Well enough ranting for today. Now if you excuse me I'm off to the store.  :D

You're not really missing anything. 2 parts in each category, of which, two of them don't animate correctly. One of the heads and one of the hands don't "flex" correctly when they're supposed to animate. Both of the heads have 2 in bite, but 0 in singing. A nice freebie addition but the frustration of having to go through the dr.pepper code-getting, then signing up for an account on the dr.pepper site just to redeem it... its a whole lot of kerfuffle for so little, really. I had to give a little facepalm because of the roundabout way they implimented it.

And yeah, you only need one code to get the lot. I got mine through a friend who drinks Dr.Pepper regardless of what offer they have :P

What Uro said, my family is big on Dr. Pepper, so getting one more bottle was no big deal.  Also you can enter for a free gamepiece, so you can have the thing for free.

I think one thing that people are missing in the controversy over this is that the code can be used for a half dozen EA games.  So direct your rage at EA, not the Spore team, who probably had to participate.

Yep.

*rummages through kitchen*

The bottle features Battelfield: Bad Comapny 2, Mass Effect 2, and The Sims 3, along with a big EA logo.  But it also works for Spore and Battlefield Heroes, maybe other things.  So this is clearly a company-wide promotion.

I dunno, probably unlocks a bunch of skins or hairdos.
Visiting the dr.pepper website would be a faster way of knowing for sure.

That won't be necessary.
The only thing though is that you cannot upload creatures with the robot parts unless you legally obtained the installer.
