Spore Anyone?

V.I.P.
I didn't see any recent threads on this game. There was a ton of hype surrounding it up until release but I haven't really heard much about it at all lately.

What gives? Is it fun? Has anybody here played it?

Is it so fun that everybody who is playing it has dropped off the net completely? Maybe that's why there hasn't been much talk about it here. :D

That's true. When I first got it I didn't leave my room for a week. You wantto know what the other alien races call me on Spore? The Omnipotent Fernikki. Fear my rath. Alsp, the reason why you haven't been hearuing a lot about it is becase of the DRM. Big mistake on Maxis' part.

I'm pretty sure I saw your creature in my game...

I don't know why people are in such an uproar about the DRM, it's not like it installs a video surveillance camera in your room or anything.

This is exactly what I said about the DRM to someone who was griping about it.

Also, did my creature show up as space fairing, and was it hostile?

Probably makes me sound stupid. but DRM is?
Basically, it's a way of limiting what you can do with the hardware or software, in this case, you're unable to install Spore more than three times.

I'd rather not have software that includes a limit on the number of times I can install it without the developer / producer offering a new copy or a new licence key at a reduced price. If they either remove the DRM, or start offering licence keys to people who have brought the product (for a price), then I'll gladly buy it. Otherwise, I'll just have to miss out.

Even without the DRM, I probably wouldn't buy it. I'm not a big fan of Sim-type games, even when you get to assemble your creatures by hand.
