Thumbs up Spore demonstration video

Here's a 35-minute demonstration of the Spore gameplay and its various game phases. I found the video quite enjoyable to watch, and now I'm really looking forward to the game's release (early September)!

Whoa, I didn't even notice the date... come to mention it, the game must have changed quite a bit since then.

I hope it didn't change too much because that kicked butt!

I feel much the same Arep - I remember seeing this vid, wanting it "NOW" and that was honestly two years ago... but, good news is we only need wait another month to get it - it's gone gold!

Preordered it today! I just hope I don't jinx it, the last games that I preordered were "Hellgate: London" and "Frontlines: Fuel of War"...

Here's the link to an interview with Will Wright, the Spore game-designer.
It's a Q&A about the game's development over the past seven years, and at one point in the interview he also mentions that today's Spore is "basically the same game" that it was during the E3 in 2005 - so perhaps the Spore we were looking at in the video that I posted at the beginning of this thread is the Spore that we can look forward to playing next month,

(PS: this time I checked the date of the interview to make sure it's not two years old, lol)

lol!

The game concept truly is brilliant in it's simplicity, and I guess that's what I hoped would remain. At the time of the general buzz that Spore developed when it was announced, I was playing a great little flash based game called Flow, and Spore just looks like a MUCH more mature version - and that can only be a good thing.

Pre-ordered Fallout 3 last night, so that'll keep me happy on the Visa front for the time being But I'll be getting this pretty soon after it comes out. Very much looking forward to it.

Spore, Fallout 3 and Star Wars: Force Unleashed are my three big games this fall. Those and Rock Band 2. Ok, my 4 big games are Spore, Fallout 3, Star Wars and Rock Band 2....and Guitar Hero World Tour. *sigh* Ok, the games I am looking forward to this fall include but are not limited to.....

My 3 year old son and I were playing around with the Spore Creature Creator this morning...I can't wait to see how some of his unholy creations perform in the game.
