My honeymoon with Spore
« on: April 13, 2006, 08:01:33 pm »
I forgot how awesome this game is gonna be. For some reason, I've just thought of it as a far-off novelty that's fun to think about, but won't be fun to play. Maybe it's because E3 is right around the corner, but recently I've realized just how incredibly awesome this will be. I never thought through how I would play the game, I've always just thought about fragments of the gameplay experience. I recently thought about the sequence of the game, the ownership of your creature, and the personal pride you get out of the colonization in space. It's probably because I played Conqueror today, and I was exhilarated through the whole thing. It reminded me that Spore is the same thing, just on a much grander scale and it gives you more ownership over your game.

uhhm? ... how exactly is spore "the exact same thing" as Conqueror? :/
haven't played it, but of what i have seen, Conqueror looks more like an advansed version of Risk, or something along those lines...

You make an empire in Comqueror... set taxes and raise armies and stuff.

So a bit like the Civ stage.

bahh, never mind...
Conqueror just feels like a dice and board-game ... not somthing i whod even put in the same category as spore in any way.

I can't get Conqueror to work. Flash 10 keeps failing the installation. -_-

I didn't say it was the exact same thing, they're not really similar at all. I'm just saying that something about Conqueror made me think about how awesome spore is gonna be. Does anyone else have any experiences similar to mine?

I have over 50 creatures, I only upload my best so each of these should be good. All my creatures work ingame, and are beliveable.

Please take a look at my sporecast of the Flob species:
