Astounding! At last, some burning questions answered.  ;D

My favourite critter is probably the piggy one. Sure, he's not the most original, but his expression is priceless.

Only trouble is, they're Whose Line Is It Anyway points, which are infamously not worth anything.

A multitude of rulers is not a good thing. Let there be one ruler, one king.

And OMG wow, there's a walking vehicle. Now I certainly hadn't thought of that. Great stuff.

YES! MECHS! I can die happy! Once I play the game of course.

From the start this game was about the gameplay not so much the graphics.  The parts that excite me are the lush worlds and incredible editing capabilities.  While I would love to see a photorealistic game, I think its impractical (at least for the first version of a game like this) given the breadth of material being covered to make this a reality.  Still though, the graphics aren't bad and I think will lead to some very interesting gameplay.
Check out my (Thurlin's) creatures, building, and vehicles.  You won't be disappointed.

The grafics are still awesome. Heck, they seem better than the trailer for spore itself....

That one is my favourite. Such a great picture. Shows how some really cool space scenes can occur. Seeing as it is WW's hobby, I'm sure he worked quite a bit on it. :D I love the new critters too. Especially those with hovering Worms-style eyebrows. ;D

Well, in some areas I think the graphics look very realistic. Sure everything has that playdough overtone, but the mechanical capital city in the video looks very high tech, for one. The volcanoe world is another realistic looking thing, it looks very terrestial.

I think they got the spectrum of Cartoony<--------->Real down very well. Albeit not "zomg next gen!" graphics, which to me is fine.

Yeah, seriously, on the graphics we have to remember that they're still trying to cram all of this information about your creatures into literal byte-size chunks to minimize background downloading strain. The graphics are much better than I was personally hoping for. The GDC'05 video made me think I could get along without the lush ambience, but these new videos have solidified the feeling that you'll be in a pretty active environment. Just nothing short of fantastic!
