Spore: General / Re: Spore Surprise
« on: October 26, 2005, 07:02:25 am »
His "surprise" is that he'll tell us the surprise on the next Podcast.

How devious.

Alt+1 and Alt+2 modify the passage of time.

For example, press Alt+2 to go back to normal time after you've slowed (slown?) it down.

The gameplay was boring and repetitive and, at the same time, overly difficult. I took a few stabs at the fireball level and after that dropped the game with no regret.
Black and White was not at all overly difficult (slow down time and catch the fireballs while you get your creature to capture the nearest town... then do the Simon-like gold story scroll nearby... fireballs will stop, giving you some breathing room).
Ninja Gaiden is an overly difficult game. (God damn T-Rex skeleton! DIE!) It's like getting kicked in the groin repeatedly untill you put down the controller with reverance and go weep in a corner. Otherwise, its damn fun (Fly, decapitated head, fly on the wind!).

*Seeks professional help.*

Spore: General / Re: Has anybody ever played SimEarth?

I always switched it to god mode, never really "played" the game but played in its sandbox-ness. Carnivorous plant civilization, ho!

Startopia was fun, I wish you could've had more to do outside your station... or make a linked empire of them. The Greys freak me out.

I tried SimLife for about a week but couldn't make it work. I think I'll find it again someday....

Anyone played that Star Wars ecology simulation, where you terraform a moon for the Gungans?

That I'm reccomending a kid's game (Ages 9 and up!!) is embarrasing. There is a "create-a-critter" mode, which I will definately have to check out.

how do you think i feel?
Three words: World of Starcraft

edit: Nice sig, Beomoose  ;)

Can anyone find or make a downloadable version? I'm trying to show co-workers parts of the video but the presentation *never loads* on the WinXP workstations we have. Driving me nuts.

Past the thread title I don't understand what the OP is saying.

Apparently Will has been dreaming about this for years and is the culmination of quite a few different game concepts and designs.

Doesn't have all that much to do with living in water, but how about evolving a beast that can travel about in space?

It would have to be partly plant to derive energy from the local star, and tough to survive exposure to radiation. Unless it can land safely on a planet and somehow return to space, I can't think of how it would be able to reproduce without getting at more matter (its living in the near-vacuum of space).

This would have to involve an alternate life-cycle which would have to include a (re-)entry pod/egg and the genes to grow a gas-powered gun to send more copies of you up into orbit. Somehow I think this would be outside the capabilities of the game, but who knows?

A select few bacteria do something like this (namely Bacillus anthracis which causes anthrax), they store a dormant copy of their genes in endospores. ;) An endospore is resistant to harsh condidtions, including low-power radiation and disenfectants.


Back on topic, a Europa ecosystem would be awesome. Do you think every game of Spore start on an Earth-like planet or a random (George Lucas-ish) global environment?

A planet (Earth included) will become uninhabitable long before its star dies. As a star ages, it becomes a more efficient fusion reaction and burns ever hotter. Not sure of the time-frame but in about 3 billion years Earth's oceans will have boiled off (the Sun will become a red giant in 5 billion years).

But yeah, I think you wont have to worry about it until you reach the higher UFO stages.

Spore: General / Re: I dreamed about spore.

I dreamed about a game the other night which turned out to be a lot like Darwinia (with Black & White 2 graphics). I definetly dreamed about Spore for like the first week after I heard about it.

... and 3 omnivores eating specific plants...
That's an oxymoron.

Or at least a non sequitur.

Spore: General / Re: Exoskeletons anyone?

Look at Gaming Steve's interview. Even creatures without a backbone will still need at least one disk for the program to work.
