Spore Patch

The Spore Patch Page announces the availability of the promised third patch for Spore, updating the life simulation to version 1.03 for either Windows or MacOS. Here's word on what the patch offers in addition to a few bug fixes: "Maxis wants to thank you by giving you some free parts in the Creature Creator. We've created 24 new exoskeleton limbs! You can combine them with parts from Creepy & Cute Parts Pack to create new, awesome creatures. To get the patch, launch Spore. If you didn't install the EADM when you installed Spore, you can download it here." Thanks Gavin.

I think the DRM issue would have been a BIGGER issue if the game was a really good game. But the issue seemed to die when people realized the game blew cobbed corn. So in the end there wasn't enough steam to really fight against DRM.

As we all know, the problem with DRM in general is that it can screw with your machine. Usually only the people that actually buy the game are negatively affected. The people who pirate the game are screwed no matter what because you never know what you get when you download a pirated game.

So wait, if they've giving out free parts in the patches, how can they expect people to pay money for the add-ons, which are (after all) just even more parts.

Money for nothing?

Before it got released it was one of those games that everyone except Especially in Michigan was excited about.

Fixed for truth. There's pretty much no reason whatsoever to be remotely excited about this game. It's like saying you were excited for The Sims.

I can't believe they released this as a game. It's not a game. It's an editor to create creatures and then they threw in four, unfinished, terrible RTS games around the editor to make it into a game.

None of us wanted the Creature Creator; We wanted the RTS gameplay! I haven't played this game in months, but I saw the post and had to comment. Such a big let down. Mainly because I blew my money on it and it sucks.

I feel bad for the developers. They spent three or four years on this piece of crap. Before it got released it was one of those games that everyone was excited about. Of course we all know now that they were sitting on a stinky turd and not a golden egg. Then it was released with the overrated DRM scandal. I say the DRM issue was overrated simply because the actual gameplay of the game was a bigger eyesore and anyone who worked past the DRM crap soon realized that the game wasn't worth playing and forgot about the game altogether.

The developers are in for a surprise when they realize no one is going to buy their little expansions for this creature creator - nongame.

Is this the patch that makes this game an actual game?

I doubt it'll ruin your computer... but I'd wait a couple of days for a standalone patch.

I'm leery about installing EADM just to patch my copy of Spore (seeing as there doesnt appear to be a 1.03 standalone patch.) Is this another 15Mb of bloat-ware that I'll hardly use and that will perform unspeakable Electronicdark-arts upon my PC?

Your thoughts would be appreciated.
