Unlikely.

The think I LIKED about spore was the shared content without the shared competition.

I will seriously rethink buying anything EA again. Since before GA I had a game that worked, and now I don't, and no prognosis on fixing the problem.

I've heard that wow is an overpriced boring junkheap from several people.

Why play WOW when you can play a FREE mmorpg online, like fiesta?

WoW occupies 70+% of MMORPGers at present. Anything that can turn that around without being as addictive and intellectually painful would be welcomed by me - which is exactly why I doubt it'll happen, as the universe has a funny way of screwing me over on this sort of thing. I was one of those who didn't want WoW to take off when it was first announced and now...

I'd wait for the reviews to come in first, and maybe the first patch, i'm sick of being a free beta tester by buying the game right when it comes out.

I liked it better when it was just Warcraft, the PC game. It basicly is just the cliche game where you fight X guys or find X pearls from the X critter. It isn't that much of a challenging kind of thing, you just complete goals mostly by killing stuff, and have different weapons to use and powers and crud

I might, but it would depend on what it was about. If it was just normal spore with other people, then no.

Depends if I had to pay money monthly, like World of Warcraft. If not, then I would buy it.

I would buy it if it was reasonably priced, didn't need to pay-to-play, isn't bugged up to the galactic core and back, has very good playability and has multiple servers that can hold at least 1,500 people. I would get it.

But if it's not all of those things, I would'nt poke it with a penny.

My answer: If it looked good and others said it was.

Subscription fee?

That's a really good point.

I have some professional organizations I pay subscription fees to, and the arabian horse association, but I won't pay a monthly fee for real estate on a server that's necessary to play a game I BOUGHT.

I'll consider a subscription if ALL of the software involved is free -- something along the lines of the base package at Linden Labs. I keep an avi for meetings and classes, and for a couple years paid subscription fees for minimal sandbox "real estate" when I was building apps.

But I'm just not investing money to buy into a server time share.

If they included a monthly fee,i would defiantly not buy it.

I need a new signature. The old one was not recent by any standards.

To be real honest, I was not entirely sure why they didn't go with a subscription model from the start.

Something like x space to upload and x download free, fees for additional ones.

They are REALLY missing out by not charging a fee to play MPN!

I'd be initially interested, then as more details (perhaps a more advanced combat system, with more moves? It's more or less the same interface as WoW, just needs a way to equip new moves on) come to light, I'd be coaxed out of my rut of stinginess and eventually purchase this possible delight.

However... It worries me if this does happen. Will Wright is no longer with EA and Maxis. Would Spore Online be as good without him? Probably so. However... It feels strange to have the idea of a Maxis game, in which some characters do speak brief bits of Simlish (listen carefully when selling to your own empire, and remember the songs available for download on the Sims 1's download page back in the 90s.) which wasn't orchestrated by Mr Wright.

It makes me feel uneasy to say the least, good sirs and madams, however it will probably shine true. The basic game is indeed very good, and the mmo aspect of it is practically there, it just needs a way to process the movements of potentially hundreds of players all at once.

A good game seldom falls from grace.. Unless it does an Atari 2600 Swordquest on its fans. (promise something so awesome you poop yourself, but then it fails to deliver due to going bust and whatnot...).
But, of course, I am rambling, so I end this post here, not with a positive or a negative... But a maybe.
