Spore Patch Plans; Movie

EA announces Path 3 for Spore is near, saying: "Patch 3 is coming soon — make sure to download it when it arrives. We’re happy to include 24 free new limbs for your SPORE™ creatures — dial up your creepiness with insectoid and exoskeleton legs." They also say information can be found on the Spore Patch Page, though all it says there is "Looking for patch 3 information? Check back soon!" In the meantime, they are also offering a new teaser movie promoting sales of the Spore Creepy & Cute Parts Pack on Tuesday.

I can't believe Spore was released. What a horrible game.

NEway, I'm just glad the "movie" mentioned is a trailer to the addon and not the announcement of a film based upon the concept!

All in due time... after all, they're already planning a Sims movie.

Addons should include new content (body parts, etc) but also new features, especially when patches can be (and are being) used to increase content. Simply releasing the equivalent of a Barbie outfit pack is not enough, especially in a game like Spore where the core gameplay wasn't strong enough.

If there was actually some sort of advantage to the design of your creature it would have been a good game. But there's no evolution of creatures. You just make them look different and slap more powerful parts on them. Just like any other game where you upgrade your character. The creature creator is actually kinda cool. Now if they could just create a decent game to go with it.

Eh, it seems like the Sims expansions which are nothing but clothes and furniture. Crap that could have been in the release? Sure, if they had no concern for a deadline - the same could be said of any expansion.

That it ads no real gameplay is more noteable in my book. I'm waiting for an expansion that adds the plant editor, or hopefully adding a bit more gameplay variety to tribal or civilization mode, or other feature rich possibilities.

But, if you are all about making creatures over playing the game, the first expansion might be a good deal for you. Since I avoided the clothing and furniture Sim expansions like the plague, it's hard for me to judge it.

I know it's too much to ask, but Please God let everyone know who bought Spore that the new expansion Pack was crap that could have been added into the original game, and finally say no to EA screwing and don't puchase it.

BTW Thank you for not letting McCain/Palin win.. Palin's doing bad work in your name.

Amen!
