Well, I was walking through Target a few minutes ago and saw a sign for the Creature Creator coming on the 19th (yes, they have it listed for the 19th). What caught my eye was the part about Exclusive Creature Downloads, so I took out my camera phone and snapped a couple of pictures. I just got home and looked at the pictures and noticed a small bit of text I missed while at Target. "Internet Connection Required For Gameplay". Uh, what the heck is that about? I thought you could play without having to be connected to the Internet? Did they remove that from Spore, but left it in the Creature Creator? This has me concerned.
Are we going to go through all this again? I hope not.
I took the pictures to show off the bit about Exclusive Creatures and the $5 off of Spore, but after seeing the Internet Required part, it changes my whole post.

Here are the pictures below that I took.

Not sure what they can make an 'exclusive' download...Target and Wal-Mart are horrid with cons to try and get you to buy from them.   >:(

I would not worry about the internet thing, hell they got the date wrong also.

Online is needed to register Spore, after that it can be turned off and you no longer need it, except for the Sporepedia obviously.

Target is full of crap.

What are they going to give? And exclusive creature? That seems kinda dumb.

But from the picture it does look like they are offering a $5 coupon on the retail.  Shrug.

I hope that's not why they removed that stuff from the Sporepedia.

Uh oh, I'm starting a wacky conspiracy theory again, but... I bet that only people who buy from Target'll get the full creature creator.  How about we sue them?

Even if those "exclusive" creatures were the ones removed, me and Woulfe got them all so it would be pointless :P

It would be pointless to make exclusive creatures as someone could just copy them in 5 seconds, maybe it's an extra part?
What have you got against intellectual midgets? They're quite smart little guys as far as i can tell.

That wouldn't be pointless, that would be just plain evil & stupid and I would be pissed.

LAME, we'll pass if it's that, don't need no walking corporate logos in our games really.

Deal with enough of that garbage in real life as it is.

Now in something Like SimCity or The Sims it's fine as it simulates reality to a degree.

Spore is more Sci-Fi / Fantasy like then those two.
