I hadn't heard of it in so long that I thought it had launched and failed.
Then it popped up in the news again last week. Weird.

First thing that popped into my head was the movie. Just think, if you got to play Christopher Walken playing Russian Roulette instead of some guy sitting in a tree with a rifle?

I figured that Spore would be one of those games you have to get, even though the fun factor might quickly burn out like The Sims.

But charging money for what is essentially a demo of a one part of the game?

Thanks EA, but no. I won't be purchasing the demo or the full product. Little Big Planet will probably get budgeted that month instead.

Seriously, the games been in development for 2.5 years. How good could it be? It takes that long to make a game from a fresh IP in the first place. Let alone an MMOG.

Well, you have an experience MMOG dev team working on it. And they've got an existing title that they can reuse code from for the basics while they dedicate as much time as possible to coding new stuff.

And it's certainly not a fresh IP. It's over 20 years old, so you have a massive dataset to pull from. Heck, just having the Warhammer manuals around probably shaved months off of pre-production.

It doesn't appear to be an MMORPG from the gameplay video or the description on the website. It looks like a Diablo-style dungeon crawler with subscription based content and multiplayer.

This morning I caught my kid skipping school. It was easy. All I did was go to Xbox Live and check the status of his GamerTag. Then I called his school and let them know he was absent without an excuse.

He managed to get himself on GothamTV this morning though. Hope it was worth it

Feel free to send an "0WN3D!" to "BlueN Yellow56" on Live.

I tried playing again in the spring for a month after a two year break. I saw a total of 6 other players in over a week of gameplay.

The JTL stuff would be fun if it wasn't just waves of chase-the-enemy-with-your-cursor and no noticeable AI, but really there's no game there at all.

Anyone with a subscription that wants their money back and doesn't want the subscription to the other games should challenge it through their credit card company.

Easy way to avoid burned pizza for the ones that checked and then forgot to check again.
Turn off the oven the first time. There's enough stored energy in there to easily finish cooking it, and not end up with any worse than a slightly overcooked pizza (which some of us like).

Then again, they could just get a life.

I'd say he pretty much nails it in his editorial.
The busiest cities in the game are now ghost towns. I figured I'd get a month long subscription to see what changes have occured since I quit two years ago. The biggest change is that nobody plays any more. If I do a /who in Theed or Coronet, two of the busiest cities in the game when I played before, I'm lucky to see six other players total.
In space I've never seen more than one other person, period.
The "action" style of combat looks good in theory but they don't quite pull it off. Lag and inefficient streaming make for a very jerky experience, despite having an extremely fast connection and a good computer.
The game crashes more often than any other piece of software I have installed (including pre-alpha stuff). There's just no way I'd recommend it to someone else, or continue my subscription beyond a month.
The system they had before was extremely flawed, but the new systems are no better, and with a player based economy the more people they lose the harder it is for players to find the items they need, and therefore they will leave the game as well.

What about having to poop?

Imagine playing a game of CS and having to tell your team to cover the door while you crap in the corner...

Hmmm... That's likely to only appeal to a very limited demographic

I found it ironic that Carm was wandering around looking at all this amazing sculpture and architecture and never brought out the camera once, yet she had to stop and take a picture of the neon sign of the pig. There was also the reference to the jewelry, and "people like us" to accentuate that she's really just as shallow as you'd expect and a perfect match for the lifestyle. I think something's coming her way too, not just bad news for Tony.

That lazy eye technology is awesome.

I had something similar as a kid that required surgery to correct, followed by training to switch between dominant eyes. I still have problems with 3D imaging, binoculars, and eye exams because I only use one eye at a time. I just happen to be able to switch the one I'm using without thinking about it now.

Windshield wipers are the bane of my existence. Imagine your dominant eye being switched on you every 1 or 2 seconds.

-edit-
Oh, and the best part of eye exams was the opthamologist who hadn't encountered someone who's eyes work independently before and said that they should have let me go blind in one eye. All because I had trouble with looking through the device they test your eyes with. In real world situations I see the same as everyone else.
