All they would have to do to fix this problem is make the turrets actually work. I don't think i've ever seen a turret shoot down a damn thing in the space phase. If the turrets worked I wouldn't have to rush home every minute or 2 and the game would be awesome. Hell i'd even be happy if the turrets worked but I had to fly home to repair them every 10 attacks or so...i could deal with that.

My thoughts on Spore after a couple of days: Cell Stage - Fun. Should be a bit longer, more detailed. Creature Stage - Fun. Should be more detailed. Too easy to max out skills of any character whether they are social or aggressive. Creature creator is fun. Tribal Stage - Tedious and simiplistic. Civilization Stage - OK, for a RTS-lite. Space Stage - Broken. Reminds me of some strategy PC games I bought in the mid/late 90s that were broken out of the box. I'm beginning to think the entire game is broken. The focus of the game is clearly on the creature creator. Unfortunately once you get past the creature stage, the characteristics of your creature don't seem to matter any more. And what you are left with is three bad mini-games that range from OK to completely broken. It's a shame really because there is something special going on during the first two stages and then it just falls apart.

Tracy Jacks is dead on. I was so excited during the first few phases of the game and was actually rambling about my creature to the point that my fiancee painted a picture of it while on acid later that night. Now I wish the poor bastard had never evolved. I'm glad that I pirated this game instead of buying at my next pay day as I had originally intended.

Check out

and

for more info/screens/videos/reviews, etc. Looks freaking phenomenal and appears to have successfully integrated Civ's mechanics and some new stuff into the game, while keeping much of the basic game from 1994 the same. Can't wait!

Hey Sausage sorry about not joining last night on RB2. Was playing with a rookie trying to coax him through, and we had to keep flipping back to MNF because of fantasy football scores. Would have been a waste of your time. Look me up some other time and rock out with The Abe Lincoln.

I can't hang playing RB2 with Sausage. I want to play Modest Mouse and Duran Duran, but that's too easy. I have no problem playing Expert Bass though. ;)

Force Unleashed is pretty fun. But the glitches and obviously limited scope of the design hurts what would have been the best SW game since KOTOR. Also, the suggestion of Vader starting the Rebellion is nonsensical. And it betrays Vader's redemption in episode 3.

Spore is a massive failure as well.

Unprecedented 1.5 stars on Amazon, mostly due to DRM protests. I was going to ask for it for Xmas. I'm guessing I should hold off? What the hell should I ask for instead? On a Mac?

I wouldn't call spore a massive failure. There is a midground between greatest game ever made and massive failure. I think spore is somewhere in between. It's got an 85 on metacritic and sales are through the roof....not really a massive failure. Maybe a massive let down....but critically and financially it's not really failing.
