I have a confession: I like the sporn. Not sexually, but it can be very amusing, and I'd love to be flying through space in Spore, and come across a planet of penis creatures.
:D

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.

Honestly, that'd be funny. I wonder if you epicized that pair of breasts, if they'd be visable from space...

Oh lawdy...

I doubt you can see creatures from space, but buildings you can, and with the building editor that can create almost anything (in a recent article I read about a city that looked like a nun >_>)... HELLO, PENIS CITIES.

The "Boobalicious" character created by PC Gamer editor Kristen Salvatore earned her a warning letter from Electronic Arts, publisher of "Spore."
This is just more proof for my theory that professional game reviewers are the lowest common denominator of gaming.

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.

But instead of forming fantasy beasts, some Spore Creature Creator users have modified the game to produce adult-themed animations, dubbed "sporn" short for "Spore porn".

So let me get this right - you CAN get abducted by "aliens" in the creature stage?  :D
Does anybody have any details on this?  ???

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.
