New Mech Creature Parts

I find it silly how some people throw a hissy fit over this. What's the harm in going to a Seven Eleven and getting one measly bottle of Dr. Pepper. These people are way too sensitive of this minor act of commercialism.

Then again, it's a bit of a regional bias. But Maxis doesn't do a very good job of reassuring it's faithful fans of a possible patch for regions that don't sell Dr. Pepper.

What? I've never heard of such a thing. Dr. Pepper, Pepsi, and Coke are like... always present in any non Third-world country.

I thought so too, but according to some people on the forums, apparently not.

Because the official spore forums are known for their maturity, patience, and understanding of the way a large company works.

Oh wait.

But yeah, I like robots and I like Dr. Pepper, so I'm cool with this.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Installing right now. Once I get it running, I'll post some pics and tease those Sporumers.

Tee-hee...

I can't help but get the feeling that I'll eventually cave to this...

Eh. Tell me what you guys think of the parts. I realy have very little intrest in returning to Spore. If they're sufficiently useful I might come back. :-\

Oh boy, I'd sure love to go get me some Dr.Pepper and grab the parts pack! I mean, they could charge more, but for the cost of a bottle of delicious teeth-rotting goodness? Awesome! Wait... the terms say only in the US. I hope thats just an oversight. Funny, given I went grocery shopping yesterday, and the Dr.Pepper is right next to the pepsi max, which is what I usually/always get/worship/make love to. Yet they didn't have any kind of promotion on them. So, what? Do we have to wait until the promotional stock filters about the UK? Is it really a US-only thing? For such a low price, why isn't there just an option to buy the parts pack directly from the official spore site?

Not quite free, but a damn-sight cheaper than an expansion pack, though a touch confusing when we got the free exo-limbs, and even more confusing in how they're making it available. Oh EA, such a mess you're making, and yet, I can only but remember the resounding "NO!" the fanbase gave when you asked if we'd like microtransations per-part. We wanted clusters of expansion-pack sized parts, either hoping to get better value for money in groups, or not wanting to see Spore turn into a Sims3 marketplace of pennypinching. We should take the worst of the fanbase and the executive decision-makers and fuse the two together, to make the ultimate in gaming evil. Then at least we could have a validity common enemy...

Yeah, I bought it with no trouble. But it's still stupid.

I was at the store tonight and didn't see any promotional dr. pepper, it'll take a few days for them to come out, I guess.
