"Sporn" has Made it Into the News
« on: July 03, 2008, 11:16:22 pm »
Well, it was inevitable.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/25272162/

It even mentions how the pirates who got ahold of it early were making some of the most nastiest creations their perverted minds could think up.

Though article was created on June 20th, this is still a bit shocking. Of course, the genitalia-shaped creatures are now being removed as they are uploaded.

Yea, I read it somewhere else as well. I forgot the side as a friend of mine pointed it out and laughed at me for me wanting to play a game like that :P

Wow. For a second I thought it would be a "video-game industry or sex industry" thing.

Pretty fair article, in my opinion. Don't see why it's necessary though.

Gawd that's annoying, the "smilies" don't show up on my computer for some reason, so I have to resort to ; - and ) to get a wink.
Meh!
As for sporn, I don't know why The News would make a deal of it, I'm sure there are many games out there with the tools to allow crude behaviour. Not like the creature creator I mean, but in the same context. Thats like making a deal out of people using rude names in World of Warcraft. It's bound to happen

Anyway, the news is all about shocking people/turning molehills into mountains. I'm sure if, as said above, mspaint were a 'new' thing, and noonehad made a drawing program for computers before, the newspapers would be doing the same thing (oh, yes, drawing is all well, but they can also make 'drorn', so it should be banned or, at least, boycotted by any of our readers)

Well, you've got to admit, it would be absolutely incredible to be beamed down from the UFO, exploring this brave new world... and suddenly get flattened by a stampede of 200 penis monsters, being chased by a 20-foot high pair of breasts.

I say there is no such thing as bad publicity.

There must be some people who are now aware about Spore.

Soon there will talk about the evolution/creation and try to ban it.

More publicity.

I thought the article was fair enough generally.

As for penis creatures the problem IMO isn't that there is "one" of them. One would be a fun curriosity, like an easter egg(s).
The problem is that if unchecked there will be thousands of them... and most are likely to be poorly made by people with no skill or imagination (hence why they had to resort to creating a body part "close at hand", for reference).

I can actually enjoy a bit of juvenile humour, but given the 'all ages' orientation of Spore, they do have to think of the children. THINK OF THE CHILDREN. Its no massive atrocity for a child to be exposed to that kind of thing, but still, its not something you want to just let them wade through is it? Im happy keeping the Sporn out of the sporepedia for manual download. No surprise childishly-giggling penii encounters, but its no big loss really.

Male Child:
1. Sees a penis creature -> nothing new to him.
2. Sees female breasts -> Unless the child wasn't breastfed I don't see the issue here.
3. Sees a vagina creature -> wtf is that? (or if he does know what it is, then it's no big deal)
4. Sees a creature that seems like 2 having sex -> same as 3.

Female Child:
1. Sees a penis creature -> wtf is that? (or if she does know what it is, then it's no big deal)
2. Sees female breasts -> Unless the child wasn't breastfed I don't see the issue here, besides she'll have a pair of them when she gets older.
3. Sees a vagina creature -> nothing new to her.
4. Sees a creature that seems like 2 having sex -> same as 1.

Fixed your quote first of all... way to go trying to blanket stereotype btw

Second of all.. a good parent would already see the potential for problems with a game where anyone can make whatever thing they wish and know some people will make more.... 'questionable' material and monitor the content appropriately, downplaying anything that the child doesn't understand...

It is kind of sad people even have to make these kind of creatures (probably out of immaturity), for a game they know will probably have a younger audience... it'd be like buying Hello Kitty adventures, going onto a server (assuming it has MP?) and spouting constantly racist/obscene things... perfectly legal? yes... proper respectful behavior around children? no!

Unfortunately you can't apply logic to these people, particularly not in the US and UK.
They are constantly complaining about nanny-state tendencies, but even so they empower their governments to tighten their grip with each complain about "you should have stopped the game, tv ad, film etc".

Regardless of whether or not a child will be traumatised by a penis/vagina***, this would not be an issue if these parents would start doing some PARENTING, and not expect nanny-Bush to do it for them.
I could POSSIBLY understand concern about things they have no way of preventing their children from being exposed to, but THEY choose to buy or at least let the games into the household. If you think the game is bad: then don't!

(for crying out god damned effing loud)

I don't know how this goes in the rest of the world, but in Europe most of us aren't so short sighted when it comes to nudity.
Children know more about their sexuality as most of us would assume.
But i do agree that we should try to avoid them to see it until a certain age.
Suing is only a selfish act of the parents to get easy money out of it imo, because it doesn't help their child who saw it at all.
Spore has made us gods even before we are worthy of being men.

Sueing is WRONG. just palin wrong. and stupid. Why the hell should I have to pay some one for being stupid?

We dont have sueing here in NZ, and im glad.

If you get out of ur car and trip over my rubber hose lying on the ground and break ur nose, its ur own damn fault for not looking where ya going.

But the person who tries to sue isnt wholey the problem, its the judges that OK it.

- Sorry, the subject of sueing anyone for anything makes me enfuriated. makes me never want to live in america.

So that's it, eh?  All these years of waiting, and as the grand moment approaches, we discover that we're not going to see planets full of penis creatures.  I mean, it's a good thing, but why couldn't they have set up a filter system or something, rather than just ban creatures outright.  Honestly, one of the first things I thought of when Spore was announced was the possibility of penis creatures, and now, the punch line has been effectively killed.

Sueing is WRONG. just palin wrong. and stupid. Why the hell should I have to pay some one for being stupid?

We dont have sueing here in NZ, and im glad.

If you get out of ur car and trip over my rubber hose lying on the ground and break ur nose, its ur own damn fault for not looking where ya going.

But the person who tries to sue isnt wholey the problem, its the judges that OK it.

- Sorry, the subject of sueing anyone for anything makes me enfuriated. makes me never want to live in america.

You don't feel just the tiniest bit of guilt if somebody gets injured by tripping over something on your property?  What if you could have warned them, but just didn't feel like it?  What if you knew the person was blind and couldn't see your hose?  What if the person is blind, and you LIE to him and tell him the path is clear?

I mean, accidents happen of course.  But if you have a known hazard on your property, the least you can do is warn people.  And if you cause serious injury to someone through your OWN negligence, then you should cover that person's medical bills, at a minimum. 

No offense, but your attitude makes me glad I don't live in your country.  Are you allowed to just knock people down whenever you feel like it?  Is it "their own damn fault" for standing near you?

Also, to one of the previous posters, lawsuits are not "easy money".   In fact, they're usually not any type of money.  In the cases where somebody actually does get money, it's far from easy.  There are occasional exceptions, and the media usually exaggerates the heck out of them, but frivolous lawsuits are almost always thrown out.  It's a complete myth that lawsuits are some sort of easy get-rich-quick scheme.

It'd be awesome to find them on some hidden moon in a backwards solar system - PENISES, EVERYWHERE.

The only way that it could be better is if their nations anthem was the music to "It's raining men"... despite me preferring no 'sporn' in-game... this tiny scenario would be epic
