More info?
« on: May 14, 2006, 11:54:42 pm »
Both GDC and E3 have came and left and public awareness for Spore is growing.
When will we see the next buch of information? I need something to look forward to!

There's been talk of a stand-alone editor being released prior to the game itself, much like the Body Shop for Sims 2. No word from Maxis/EA about it so far though.

Otherwise we will need to wait and see if there is another information blackout and how long it lasts.  I wouldn't be surprised to see Maxis go on a psuedo hiatus for a while to let people absorbe and find out what information is out there before slowing providing new information.  Similarly, I wouldn't be surprised to see the odd new bit of "leaked" Spore information over the next few months while everything is being worked on at Maxis.  I am hopeful for an editor release, maybe in late fall to give the community time to work out as many kinks as possible in the editor software while providing a great hook into the game.

Releasing the editor earlier would surely help them with bug finding before the release.  Let's hope they decide to actually do that.

I hope they begin sending something like a weekly newsletter, like what they did for Sim City 4 or The Sims 2...

Judging by the amount of newsletters they've sent since last year, I'm not holding out much hope. :-\

Yeah, I signed up hoping to at least one thing a month.  Now that E3 is over with maybe they can start a weekly/monthly newsletter.

I think we'll get gradual bits of info over the summer.  An interview here, preview there...  but we won't start seeing the rush of info until around october-ish

I'm not looking forward to the newsletters except as eye candy.  I would be very surprised to see much new information (at least for a while) though I am hopeful we will see some interesting creatures and some nice in-game shots.

The thing is that they will proabablely send more news soon because there most likely form what they said, there wont be another e3 with spore in it(hopefully) and if they plan to not do another e3 then we get a steady flow of info, which is why i think they put the news letter in.

We can only hope tho right
