Good idea a welcome area for new folkz ;)

I just joined, even tho' i've known about spore for quite some time now, like way back when folks were asking Will about his next project after SimCity 4, and he was saying something vauge like 'SimEverything' as kinda a joke to keep folks from asking too much about his next project.

Little did he know or we knew, that in actuality that was going to be his next project after all, kinda, sorta, allmost.

He could of been more vague and said....

I just noticed my thingy over dere says Pong Paddle, what's weird is i'm old enough to rememer PONG. I guess 40 years of pop-culture does that after awhile ;)

Guess the whole reason i'm still kicking on this rock is to await the 2nd coming.... or for SPORE, possibly both.... who knows ?

I think it'll be interesting to see what kind of critters i'll dream up useing Spore as i've been imagineing all kinds of things from as far back as I can remember, my imagination is still pretty much been 'out there' from like the start of the 1970's when I was a mere cub, only said as if you've seen my apartment you'd think it was a cave of some kind, heh heh heh heh, and the fact i've been playing a wolf online pretty much when I started being online, as a way to hide / protect my identity from who knows what.

If it's good enough for Billy Bob Gates, it's good enough for me to not use my real name online ;)

Of couse back in the day when I got online there wasn't all these worries over ID thieft & whatnot, so in a way I was thinking ahead by going under a alternate ID, however it should be noted that because of this my charater has gotten offers to get Credit Cards with his name on them in e-mails....

I think that it's kinda funny that an imaginary character can get a credit card easyer then a real person can, it says a lot about the credit card system, doesn't it ? Lord knows i'll never get one if they are going ot offer one to someone who only is bits & bytes on the internet, eh ? Don't really trust a system that's set up like that.

Anyhow, hopefully today we can peek into E3 this weekend from Real Player or whatever they'er useing for the webcast and get a look at EA's booth & Spore, just so the wait won't be as LONG as it is, Spring 2007 seems like a lifetime away, or at least 5 The Sims 2 Expantion Packs away, heh heh heh heh heh

I hope we'll find out if there are TOWELS in Spore.

Towels are incredibly useful as you may know ;)

Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
I like the UI, looks verry simple, simple is good !
K.I.S.S. is being followed to the letter if that's the final UI for the game, sometimes the best rules are the old ones, and K.I.S.S, is one of the oldest programing rules there is.
If only M$ would follow that rule when it comes to thier OS ;)
<Yoda> Me likey interface much indeed.... </Yoda>
It's also nice to see everything clearly, the old video was nice, but everything was rather blurry, didn't really give you a feel of how it'd look on a regular PC, due in fact to it was what, a 3rd generation video file or someshuch ?

Incidently don't flood the forums with pointless OMG comments and similar just to get your post count up, try and keep it relevant.

Don't they need to be on this thread to see this button that links them to this thread?  Or are we suppose to spread it around?

I didn't make a site list, I belive that was aquaman, I just linked to his post. All the links I posted on my post were linking to relevant stuff like the gdc 05 video and so on :)
