On the Versatile Spore Engine

Kotaku has a story about the potential of Spore, discussing the viability of the game's underlying engine for use powering other kinds of games across various platforms. They quote EA's Frank Gibeau on the topic: "What's so beautiful about Spore is that it's extremely malleable. You could add RPG or action, you could take it to different platforms, like (Web-page) flash games, the PlayStation 3, the Xbox 360, Nintendo's Wii. It really travels well to other platforms."

I'm kind of let down. No, not kind of. I'm really fucking let down. I was called about the pre-order and after reading the comments and reviews this sounds like what happened to me with the Sims.

I bought into the hype played it for several hours but the bottom line was that even the cool possibilities couldn't save the boring ass game-play.

I ended up installing a money cheat and building or designing huge houses... forget the micro managing the little people. Now that I think about it Black & White was the same thing. After hearing those little ungrateful villagers crying for more more more...

So now I doubt I'll be picking up my copy tomorrow. And with the WAR Preview Weekend event being more hassle than anything else... well, I need to kill something in cyberspace or I won't sleep well tonight.
