22. Re: Spore Downtime Today Oct 23, 2008, 03:47 Shadowcat
 
anyone who's played the game knows that "logging in" is 100% optional. There is absolutely nothing whatsoever keeping you from continuing your saved single player game when you're disconnected to the internet. [...] THE ONLY LIMITATION IS LOGGING ON TO SPOREPEDIA.
Cool. I guess it's option (b) then -- a case of them choosing their words really badly. How about "Players will be unable to log into Sporepedia", rather than "Players will be unable to log into their game"??

I'm sure they were only aiming the announcement at players who knew what it meant, but for a game that has taken so much flak for its DRM, it's still slightly surprising they didn't think about how it was going to sound to other people...

Thanks for the clarification, though.
