Wright called EA aliens :o

Hehehe!  :D

There is a new article up on MSNBC from a couple days ago:  EA Betting Big on Quirky Spore

My favorite line is where Mr. Wright says that he used to think of EA as aliens... it also goes into how much pressure they are putting on him.. and all the money invested... etc etc.. I thought it was a great read!

I think the biggest thing in this article was this bit:
Quote
"It's an epic game," said Wright, who estimated that it would take a gamer 79 years without rest to play out every aspect of Spore.
If it has content to fill that much time, it's almost like you'll never need another game again.

yeah, most of the time it would be exploring the galaxy every single planet, but you can get bored on that very fast

Only if you think of it in terms of games that are out now. But if you consider that each planet in Spore will be almost completly different, and that solar systems can contain any number of oddities and breath taking sights, its easy to imagine never getting bored.

Since when is Spore "quirky"? Katamari is quirky. Spore is epic. That's like saying evolution is "Aww, such a cute widdle quirky concept".

Probably from the cartoony look of some of the screenshots.

If I hear anyone say that - I'm going to evolve a giant spike to impale them with it.

Oh noes! The drop bears! :| We have to make a race of carnivores right away, that are big enough to prey on them. I wouldn't want to be walking there, minding my own business when suddenly - WHAM! The insidious drop bears squash me >_<
