    I must say I didn't see this game as much of a big deal before I read Joe's preview - neeeeeeeedâ„¢! Like Joe says, even if it doesn't turn out to be fantastic, I still want to look at some of the new ideas it's bringing to the table.

    Roll on 7th September!

    If its anything like Black and white, I'll be a megalomaniac god that plays with the hopes and dreams of my followers. "Oh, you thought it would be fun to collect wood, how does collecting it in outer space sound?! MWhahaha"

    lets just hope its release date is atleast somewhat close to reality..... would suck to see a game with so much potential go the way of DNF.

    I'm really looking forward to playing this game. It sounds like there is a lot of new technology and gaming concepts behind the engine.

    I wasn't that excited about this game, it looked like another big promise no deliver job. But having read the sheer scope of the thing, and how ridiculously free it seems to be I'm suddenly rather giddy.

    I need to play this game, I've been hoping for it's release ever since that quiet announcement at E3 all that time ago and this preview has just reawakened that enthusiasm.

    lol, one of the freelancers that does some stuff for bit on the odd occasion is called Spode... I guess I'm more used to typing that than Spore (as I had to update that caption last night when the trailer was released). :thumb: :blush:

    Nice preview Joe, I'm surpised your race didn't have a Steven King-esque mental disorder, which always seemed to be the sum total of your creative output. (j/k!)

    On subject though, in theory this is a truly breath taking game and if they can pull it off, which fingers crossed it looks like they can, it just might be the best God-game since Sim City.

    Was nice and happy when i got the email yesterday saying a release date had been confirm. Even happier when hookedonspore.com updated with loads of new info and positively giddy this morning when I got to read bit-techs thoughts and see new screens. Quick Q though, did you take the screens yourself or were they supplied by Maxis?

    Not as good.

    Also, we've decided this is an example of the MOSH genre - Massively Online Singleplayer Hybrid; MOSH.

    They were supplied by Maxis - Joe wasn't allowed to take screens at the event.

    About 30 seconds of just trying to work out the genre then Ed decided MOSH was a good acronym and we worked backwards :p

    Rest assured that they are representative of the game as we play it though.
