it basically said that you will be able to view creatures that are downloaded to the database and rank them according to how they look and maybe perform, and there might also be a way in the game to make it to where you only get creatures ranked 3 and above or 4 and above.  Steve also stated that the website might be like Amazon to where if you say you like this type of creature then the website will refer you to other types of creatures that you might also like.

Sounds like old news to me. When do we get the new stuff?

"I don't know if there's gonna be a filter in the game, where you're gonna be able to actually put in, say, ok, you only want to have, say, maybe things ranked one through five stars, and you only really want to get things ranked four or higher."

Yeah...it's been like every SporeTalk since the interview with WW...Steve pretends he has news and then it's all "I don't know".   >:(

Myself, I'd rather he quit doing SporeTalk until he actually has something to talk about.

Well, he did confirm that creatures will be rated and stored (probably on a website).

that's why i said might be, not there is going to be, or there isn't going to be because there still could be something like that.

See the problem I have with that is we basically already knew. This stuff has all been commented on at some point in the past, and saying "hey that thing we said will probably be included a year ago is now definitely in", doesn't qualify as news to me. Confirmation of the old, does not new information make. But then, that's probably why I don't listen to any of the podcasts to hear things about Spore.

I agree.  New news should be facts about things we don't think about every day, not just a conformation with maybe or there is a chance.

I don't know, but we may be able to build flying skyscrapers that land on enemy citizens. I said may be, not will be or we won't be, because there could still be something like that.

Steve is just answering the questions about spore that people send to him. I don't think he really knows much more about spore then we do.

IMmm sur ehtat he knows more, and that he is giving most of it out as he gets it and keeping some for himself.  There is probably some stuff that he gives out slowly to keep people interested.

wow, i smell conspiracy.

seriously people, you don't want to know that something at least is confirmed in all the myriad of speculation about spore that we have come up with? That is news to me. It shows more of the direction that they are taking Spore in. It's something we can now be completely sure of, instead of having the question mark after it.
