Title: A Little Bit of Info About You...
Post by: kushinagi on March 22, 2005, 11:38:40 am
I see a lot of new posters in this area introduce themselves, and seeing as I'm positive I'm not the only one here who only reads this forum, I figured: "Why not have a topic with short quick bios of the regulars here?" It'll also be where new guys would introduce themselves in a place that can easily be referenced.

Me first:

I'm curious as to whether anyone reads these things, since they get bloated with people saying "I'm this generic person, just like everyone else."

My name's Craig. I'm actually a special agent who moonlights as a brain surgeon. I play in a popular rock and roll band, test rocket cars, and know kung fu. Or perhaps I'm just another generic web presence with delusions of grandeur. You'll never know! Mua ha ha!

Sounds like no one is being serious But i'm Dan, thats pretty much what I prefer to be called. i'm 21, iowa usa.
I am currently suffering form a sickess known as grand jury duty:)

I found this game because penny arcade did a few sentences in one of their daily rants on the front page.  From there after becoming ravenous for more i read the gamspot article.

Then I went to the forum set up for the game, wouldn't you know it... Gaming Steve made a post promoting his site and podcast.  Thats how I got here, now you're all stuck with me.

Post by: Jennifer Reitz on June 10, 2005, 01:20:37 am
I'm Jennifer Diane Reitz.
I'm 45, and I live in a polyamory with three spouses.
I once was a game designer and artist (Boppin', Lab Of Life, assorted projects for everyone from EA to Activision), now I am a web cartoonist.
I do Pastel Defender Heliotrope http://www.pasteldefender.com/,
I just finished Unicorn Jelly http://unicornjelly.com/
Both are science fiction stories about alien universes with unique, consistant, and alien physical laws.

I found out about Spore from members of my comic forum, who thought I would be interested.
And, golly, am I!

An odd note: in 1983 I sold a product design (for the C64 and Amiga) to Activision called 'Multiverse' which in numerous
ways was strikingly similar to Spore...it was never actually made, of course. I got 10K for Multiverse. It was
my very first gig in the games industry. I stupidly spent the last 14 years still trying to get it made under new names, but...failed.
That's why I am a web cartoonist now. Much less stress.

I can't wait for Will Wright to finally give me the next closest thing to my own dream. I know he can make it happen!

And...it will be far better than my comparatively primitive 1983 invention, without question!

My Online Name for quite some time is Hydromancerx (sometimes Hydromancer or Hydro oh and Hydrox2001 on the Sims 2 site)

I have been a huge Sim fan since dos Sim City and of the Sim games have played (and own) Sim City, Sim Life, Sim Farm, Sim Earth, Sim Ant, Sim Tower, Sim Isle, Sim Copter,Streets of Sim City, Sim City 2000, Sim Park, Sim Safari, Sim Town, Sim City 3000 (and Unlimited), The Sims (the expantions from House Party, Livi'n Large, Hot Date, Vacation), SimCity 4 and Sims 2. (preaty much all but Sim Tune, Sim Health, Sim Golf and SimMars (which never came to be).

I first started by editing the Sims with my "Maise Corn Plant" Which was a converted easel. Then made a crafting system for Dungeon Siege and more recently made a bunch of animals for Neverwinter Nights and Maztica stuff. As well as a fish skin for the Sims 2 and assorted houses.

I am currently getting my degree at AIO in Game Art and Design and hope to be part of the creation games like this someday. Will Wright has been my hero ever since my 2nd game SimLife. And ironiclly my love of zoology has acually lead me back into gaming through the creation of both real and fictional creatures.

Ths is exactly the type of game I have always dreamed of making. Course other people have too. I even had a pnp version i made one and the animals i made for NWN to some extent in Civilution (my non mythical non magical realistic world that failed).

Ok here are some of my works so you get an idea of me...

Well, might as well.

I usually go by Realm or RealmRPGer when I feel like being unique. Certain friends will refer to me as Kentarou, Hamtarou, or HamHam, among others (granted those are all names given to me years ago, but when I talk to those old friends they use them). Oh, and some people call me Nathan, but I'm not quite sure why. Maybe my parents have something to do with it.

I heard about Spore after some buddies came back from GDC, where upon I wailed out in pain and cursed Erhardt for saying "it won't be worth the money."

Google pointed me to Steve.

Yadda yadda...I don't come here much anymore because I'm quite busy. Aside from game design I now have a website that I need to run. And it's not just a Joe Schmoe website, either. It somehow turned into a neopets+gaia, but cooler (you know, I always have to add in that designer flare). Too much work. X|

First heard about Spore: Game Informer Magazine. It was a tiny box with almost no information in it. I ignored it until one day I was reading the magazine, realized I had read everything except that, then decided I would see what it was all about. Since then I have been obsessed with it.

Most anticipated game: Spore.  ;)

Other forums I post on: I post on the G4TV forums (Off Topic, for the most part) the most. I used to post on Gamespot, but quit posting there after the site redesign. I also used to post on Hodstock.com (the forums for the Hodstock server in EQOA).

Other information: I've been lurking around the Spore forum since about March of 05. I figured since Spore is coming out this year, I'd start posting.  ;D

I first found out about the game through an article on GameSpy which detailed the GDC demonstration that has now become famous. I was amazed by the scope the game promised, but then I sorta forgot about it. I rediscovered it a while back and found the videos of the demo. I am now officially obsessed.

Found Spore: In a similar way as Spriggand. I saw an article about Spore on Gamespy, but forget about it again. Some days ago I suddenly thought about Spore again and decided to search for some info about the game. And this time, I'm hooked.
Found Gaming Steve: When searching for info on Spore I came across this site, which has, in my oppinion, the best and most active forum of all Spore forums.

I've been lurking around some days here and decided to register now :)
Evolution always appealed me. I love games like Simlife and Simearth. Freedom is another thing I really enjoy in games, like GTA, it really got me hooked. Just like Will said in the video, I didn't care to much about the missions, I just went my own way driving around doing my own stuff.
And now this game which got both, I just can't wait to get my hands on it.

Favorite games:C&C saga,AVP 2,and soon Spore will be my #1 favorite game  ;D.

Damn blew my 1st impression (and they mean alot),Realy sorry l didnt see this topic :(.Hopeing my other topic can just die and\or be locked (or better yet,wiped off).So l will cut and past my post on here (the right Topic  ;) ).Agen l am very sorry for the disrespect and I will look much harder from now on.

A big HI too all,as I am new here.And l must say,HOLY ****,this game is nothing of this world.It will be the game that will change the way other games are made in the future.It has taken me all day,but l have went through all 19 pages (it was god damn mad(and got fustrated when l got too pages 12-3,carnt tell you how many clone topics there are  )).And with going through ALL the 19 pages l have gotten more info then l could of ever wanted (YOU RULE STEVE),not only that,l find out that there has been a *gameplay trailer* out for like a year,and been talked about for even longer(good thing,l did not have too suffer as long as you people waiting for info and for the game itself too come out).But for some reason it has only now reached one of the fourms that I post at.But sad too say not all people can see why this game is great (dont ask me,they are blinde,stupid ect ect),take a look:

this is were I 1st found out about Spore and the Google clip,and l think ALL people that posted LOVED it :
SEE THE SITE HERE (could not get it too work by cutting and pasting :S) (http://www.apathbeyond.com/forum/index.php?s=f20d776c0cdbed2cbec1a3c2ea745640&showtopic=7940)

And here.More people like the game at this area,and the only people that didnt realy like it,only watch the 1st 4 min *sign*.Also this is were l set up a topic about this GREAT game http://cncreborn.planetcnc.gamespy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1210

But this site had the most.....how do you say..stupid\blinde people   (guest posting is on,so give them a peace of mined,and let them know what for.And maybe tell them bumb people that are blinde,why Spore is going too beet the crap out of other games of today)  http://www.rare-extreme.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=4805&st=0

So yep it has realy gotten around.I carnt wait for E3,so then we will have even MORE info(trailers,screenshots).But the only thing that l dont like all too much is the city level (like sim city),l mean the UFO and Evolution is so great that l like them alot better then maintaining a city (not that l dont like it,just not as much fun as blowing up worlds full of Telly tubbys or somthing (Or just becose l can)  ).I will most likely post about this fourm that l have found at the other fourms.

AGEN:Steve you are the mighty info bringer of Spore,I give you many many cookies.And hope too see more info come rolling in  .

Also note:sorry for bad grammer,I was never realy good At my English subject.

me:   Slugfly
from:  canada, but I live in korea.  I also at times live on the Alexstraza server of WoW, and Emerald Dream server.  I also spend time at Torn City (http://www.torncity.com) and regularly post at Lionhead boards (http://allboards.lionhead.com).  I am always Slugfly (except Dr Slugfly in games where two names are required, such as in Guildwars).
found Spore:  I was looking over last years GDC vids for stuff from Lionhead and decided (on a whim) to watch Wright's presentation...  was stunned... awed...  instant conversion!  (not really conversion, I own Sims and 4 or 5 expansions, Sims2, Simcity and Rush Hour).  This is the most anxious I have ever been for a game, and in fact, before having heard of this game I had done about 100 pages of a TDD for a game that is very similar in concept.
found Gamingsteve:  was linked here from... erm... might have been Simcity Central... might have been Lionhead boards... not sure.

How'd I hear about Spore - I first heard about it in an E3 report on Gamespot (http://www.gamespot.com/pc/strategy/spore/news.html?sid=6125451) last year.  I've been following what info I can find ever since

How'd I hear about Gaming Steve - I went digging several months ago for the GDC video and wound up on the forums here at Gaming Steve.  I don't really have anything new to bring to the table, so I didn't create an account until... well about 20 minutes ago.  But I've been reading the forums more often so I figured I'd go ahead and sign up.

Was in the counselor and companion program with origin EA ultima online, companions helped new players with any problems they may of had getting started in the game.  Counselors helped with the veteran players and any problems they may of had. It was a shame when that ended but times move forward. Was accepted into the seer program but the program ended at the time.

Anyway that is a little bit about myself and of course I am very interested in Spore :)

Found spore: About a year ago
Found gamingsteve: Google (is there any other way?)

Hopefully I've signed on to a robust and active forum.    It looks that way so far.   Just one suggestion for the owner.  I'd go to a "blog" format with this forum.  It will keep people from "dredging" up old threads just for the "sake of discussion".    It's a better way to communicate (but to each is own).

As far as my contributions to this forum.  I plan on being as active as I can.  I'm also in the midst of creating a couple of "Fan Sites"... SporeWars.com™ and MusicSpore.com™ . 

SporeWars is going to be a "story" site, where members will be able to submit "Sequel" storylines made for Online Movie Viewing Only.  Every member will be able to "vote" for the best one.  The one that gets the most votes will be turned into a "SporeWars" online series.  Each week members will be able to add scenarios (add characters, etc).  My plans for this site are to bring out the best stories and characters. 

Then next logical step to "SporeWars" will be the "prequel" which will eventually hit the store sheleves sometime in April 07 ;)

As far as "MusicSpore", it will pay particular attention to customized "choreographed music" sequences in fight scenes.  Again, whichever is the best for each scene will  "rise" to the top.

Cheers... (hope I have enough time and moolah for all this)

The first time I learned of spore was when I was in high school, reading a 2005 issue of Computer World Monthly. it was just a small article, but it sparked my imagination with so much intrest, I had to follow it.

I entered Gaming Steve after looking up Spore faqs on Google. you guys seemed to be a good bunch of fellows, so I joined up.

Heyup, i found this site from spore googling.

my interests are holding hands, walks in the parks, long strolls along beaches, reading shakespear and plotting domination of the galaxy with the most stupid un-expected species to fill the role.

And possibly playing with a life inhabited planet like a kid plays with an ants nest....you know you want to aswell....

I also fancy going to a system with life on a planet, terra-forming another planet in the system, taking a species and dumping it on the other planet, putting monoliths on both planets, and see how the intelligent aliens react to the fact they got genetic brethren on another nearby world....mwahaha, if they get too big for their space-pants, i'll just zap their worlds...

Yet another one who falls in love with Spore.
I'm here to discuss and chat about Spore but mainly to get new info and to kill the time untill Spore will release me form my suffering.  ;D
I saw some video.google video's and I absolutely love it! Great consept, great style, very, very charming game!

Something about me: I'm 17 years young, I live in the Netherlands. Currently having my final exams. Next year I'll start as a student in Artschool (for the dutchies: it's Avans Hogeschool, AKV St. Joost in Den Bosch) My dream is to become a Concept Artist for beautifull games like Spore.
Hobby's: Drawing, (good) movies and of course gaming (otherwise I wouldn't be here  ;))
I'm currently into TESIV: Oblivion. Really like the game but I have to admit, after seeing Spore it feels kind of dumbed down, still great game though.
Anyways, that's basicly it.   :D *applause*  :D

A little delayed "hi" from an *old* Spore geek :)
Hey people =)

I've been around this forum and the GS site, listening to the podcast since JUST after GDC last year when I (like everyone else) was blown away by what I read about Wills presentation. This seems like... well... like if someone reached into my head and found my most personal desires for a game and made it real =D and by the look of I'm not exactly alone ;O)

...and I have a STRONG feeling Spore might edge in there within the next 6 months ;O)
Found Spore: Through an article while bored at work, I believe it was from gamespy.com. After that I googled Spore and sucked up all the info I could get my grubby little hands on - the Gaming Steve forum was one of the first hits on google =)
My first Spore races will: Probably resemble some sort of octopoda or a Lobsterman (if anyone here has played TFTD).
Ultimate Goal: World domination is such a tired cliche, I'd be happy to be able to control my own life =P

Occupation: student of landscape design, professional landscaper
First heard of Spore: Random google searches for strategy and simulation games
Found Gaming Steve: A link off of one of some blog I hit due to a Spore reference

As far as other interests go, I am an artist at heart... though I shall never make so much as a dollar off of my work. Pencilwork, acrylics, oil. I used to have some talent for sculpture. I am a history buff, particularly around the ancient mediterranean (pre roman collapse), mongol history, and the whole Medici period. One of the weird things my mania picked up was the history of agriculture. I could probably tell you how to best grow any even halfway significant crop anywhere on the planet with any level of technology.

Ah, the blessings and curses of obsessive compulsive disorder. I managed to conquer most of my ticks, but I still fall to one mania after another. Some weird topic catches my eye and I feel I need to be the god of that field.

Hrm, I just posted my "hi!" thread in the Everything Else section, but I guess I should say hi here too? Lessee. Call me Blue or Shards, either is fine. I found heard about Spore from my husband, but I'm now ravenously interested in it while he's content to wait until September to even think about it. I found GamingSteve from the official Spore forums. A post by Onaderthad listing a few excellent creators convinced me I should check things out over here. I don't know how well I'll be able to keep up with two forums, but I'll do my best to contribute.

I enjoy doing Web design, reading sci-fi/fantasy, playing Spore and the City of Heroes MMO, and... well that's pretty much me in a nutshell. Looking forward to getting to know the folks here!

I suppose I should say an official hello here. 

I'm Rflagg (a Stephen King fan), my real name is Matt, and I live just outside of Washington DC, and have been quietly watching these forums for any bit of nugget of info for the past 3 years.  I can't believe we're months away from actually having it, I think it's possible that Sept 7th might see the highest single instance of instantaneous human combustion once we get the game in our hands....but hopefully I'm wrong there. :)

Right now I'm biding my time by playing Lego Indy on the PC and Rock Band on my 360 (of course, now that has the sequel coming in Sept as well, damn the holiday season!), and of course both of those will be tossed aside once spore is in my grip.

Anyway, that's my long-winded hello!

My name's Halley. I am 23, and I originally hail from Atlanta (though I'm currently a wanderer, by necessity).

I discovered Spore--or, more specifically, GamingSteve--in summer of 2005 while doing a Google search for evolution/ecology games. I am an absolute science geek, especially the life sciences.

I am taking a break before going to grad school, since I can't settle on what I want to do. In the meantime, I'm working on a joint study on global warming between Harvard, the University of Georgia, and Duke. It's extremely fascinating, and the pay is appropriately meager.

I've introduced my fellow lab/field assistants to Spore, and they're so excited, they can hardly stand it. I won't be able to play Spore because my Mac lacks an Intel chip and I'm too poor to get a new computer. But I figure I can enjoy it vicariously through them.

Another possible point of interest: I happen to be quite artistic. It is surprisingly helpful in the sciences, I've discovered. If I could become a professional scientific illustrator, I think I would keel over with joy.
