Happy Three Year Anniversary
« on: March 11, 2008, 09:55:12 am »
It has been three years to this day that Will Wright first unveiled and demo'ed Spore at GDC 2005 on March 11, 2005.  Happy anniversary!

Crazy it's been that long, and only a little under six months to go!


Looks like even I was being optimistic with a March 07 release date...

You really believe Spore will be released in 6 months?

Hehehe, yeah I totally went there.
My predictions for Spore.

1) No water creatures at initial release. I was right about this even when the fanboys were denying it.
2) No composite limbs at initial release. eg. Buttface; attaching a limb to a limb to... Update: Prediction was incorrect. Buttface is in!
3) Spore will outsell the Sims and be the best selling game of all time until something better comes along.

On that note: In three years, I attended a higher education for 1 year, battled unemployment, The X360, PS3 and Wii were released, had family members pass away, got my drivers license, battled unemploment some more, got a job, bought an X360 AND PS3 (Yes, even with unemployment. I take care of my money), got a car, and before Spore is out, I will get an uber-PC just for kicks.

Eventfull three years indeed.
