$8 SPORE TALKS online! (Audio-Only)
« on: April 04, 2006, 04:24:35 pm »
http://store.cmpgame.com/category.php?cat=34&skin=gdcradio

I just randomly found this by going to http://www.gdctv.net/ and then the GDCRadio.net link on the right of the page.

These are all of the GDC talks in audio format, but it sort of sucks, being that they are $8 each!


Links to Spore talks are here:

ALL SPORE TALKS ARE NOW ONLINE!

These are all audio-only. I'm guessing that the videos are next to go up... but how much will they cost? 0_o

Some sessions will be streamed flash video player with synchronized presentations while others will now only be available as paid MP4 downloads compatible with video iPods and PSPs.
Acording to this, /some/ of them /should/ be free... but the important question is... are the Spore ones going to be free?

but the important question is...how many of them will end up floating around for free even if they charge for them? ;)

I got a DVD from a friend once. It came from someone in the Oscar Awards jury.  ;D
So I hope the pirates do their duty here too!

Isn't that for the teacher to decide?

You assume schools are actually interested in education and students' interests. Haven't you figured out by now they're mainly about training a horde of good little consumer-worker bees who don't question authority? There are plenty of TEACHERS who care about their kids -- the system does what it can to stifle them, though.

But this site has an educational value?

Yay - Another fellow teacher using valuable lesson planning time to view Spore.

Together we will bring Spore to classes everywhere.

Heh, teachers interested in Spore; thats neat.

Id probably buy the spore talk one if I had my own credit card, or if my dads wasnt maxed out.
Although the biggest factor is that $8 is pretty hefty for an audio lecture, and that I'm cheap. XD

Of course we could all be like "OMG EMAIL ME IT IF U HAIVE IT! MY EMAIL IS.." ect. Probably not the best idea...

OMG PM ME IF YOU HAIVE IT!

Much better idea  :D

But seriously. Yeah, $8 is /really/ asking too much, I wouldnt mind listening to some of the other things on there too, but nothing (except mabye the spore talk) is worth $8 to me.
