Spore Debuts in North America

As noted in last week's Spore shipping announcement (story), the global rollout of the life simulation is now complete, as the game should be appearing in North American stores today. On related notes, there's a post-release Spore interview on Shacknews talking with Morgan Roarty about how the game's design evolved over the course of development and an interview with Will Wright on MTV Multiplayer getting the game's designer's reaction to early reviews, and learning about his personal playing style.

I never got myself ridiculously hyped up for Spore - I've always intended on buying it, especially after Will Wright's incredible GDC presentations, but I never thought it would be the end-all be-all game.

Just bought it this morning, and I'm loving it so far Sure, the gameplay segments on their own aren't the most groundbreaking, but it's definitely the case of the sum being more than the parts. And the art design is just so charming and beautiful, and pox on everyone who says it's stupid and kiddy!

Came here to say this.

Kind of a backfiring mocking attempt there.

I just ran across this rockpapershotgun quick write-up on Spore, and now I want it. Damnit. I'd better fire up GalCivII before the rest of my real gaming persona dies.

I'm not sure I agree with LMN8R's poem-like post layout,

LOL. Maybe he's trying to write a song?

That is some of the most interesting formatting I've seen.

I disagree
To me it seems like
The first few stages are
Supposed to just get you into the
Feeling of the game
Cause after the first few stages
Things become much more complex,
and you have a lot more stuff to do
The Sims didn't have nearly as much
character, content, or variety or content as

this game

Spore feels like 5 subpar games rolled up into 1.
The creature creator is fun, but thats about it.
There just inst much to do, Dance or kill.
I prefer Sim City, or even The Sims.

If I ever got 30-40 hours of entertainment with every game I ever bought then I would be one happy gamer! Even games I really enjoy I usually don't even get close to 30 hours of entertainment. There are very few games that I play through more than once, they have to be extremely good for that to happen.

Not all that impressed. It's a decent enough game, I got my money's worth, but it's going to be the sort of game that I maybe play through two or three times, probably 30-40ish hours in total, and then put down. Not bad in the grand scheme of things, but it's certainly not the god-knows-how-many hours I spent with each SimCity.
