No, not really, not a long article either. I dunno why it has its own thread when articles like this show up every day.

Exactly. I'd rather not waste time if there is nothing new.

I know, reading hurts.  :P


In all seriousness, and I know it is probably old news, besides the 3-D Print out figures I did not realize the following:

"For players who really become attached to their game creatures, publisher EA has a deal with Web site Zazzle.com to print up T-shirts, mugs and poster of players' creations on demand."

...pretty cool, and new to me.

He said spore's been in development for about six years. I thought it was 8.

Yep

And please don't double post.  There is an edit function, and we would prefer if you would use that instead.  Thanks!
