I'm pretty displeased that the parts don't seem to have much more than cosmetic function (bunch of new eyes, but no mention of them giving non-eye sensor parts function), and the new animations seem to just belong to the creator. New ways to make my monstrosity dance. Joy. The fact that they gave new parts to one of the more robust creators really gets my goat. No real function, no animations with practical value, no tentacle-limbs, and I'm still stuck in elementary-school geometry with the Building creator. All for the low, low price of $19.99! Man, I'm just gonna splurge the $20 on Playdough...

Ccurving wrote:I think what upsets people about this - I know it upsets me, but I can't speak for everyone - is that the creature creator wasn't just $10 for parts. It was $10 for an awesome creation engine that also had some parts to use. This pack doesn't have anything other than some new parts, so how can it be worth more than the actual creator?

Not to say that I disagree with your point - actually that makes a lot of sense and I don't know why I didn't consider it before. But I feel like the same principle applies, and if they afford to put the creator out for $10, then they can afford to put out a bunch of parts for even less.


...but it isn't just parts. There are paint options and animations. They put the creator out for a low price to get people playing and telling others to go buy Spore when it comes out. There is nothing wrong with doing that. They just wanted to get the word out without spending big money on commercials. Now that they have enough players, they can bring out a parts pack to get even more people talking about the game. Truth is, most companies are using the people as advertisers. Of course, people think it is completely wrong but I don't. They are not breaking the law in any way, shape, or form. People need to stop accusing EA and Maxis of being money grubbers. If they were money grubbers, would they take the time to make patches to help people.

Yes, because bugged games don't sell. They don't do it to help people, they do it to help sales.

That's all any company is there for, to make money.

Can a SporeMaster lock this topic?

This topic and this forum is hijacked by the anti Spore maffia and I won't update this topic anymore.

Maybe a Sporemaster can make an new topic with the official announcement; my fingers are close to deleting the first post completly.

As the self-proclaimed Godfather of the anti-SPOOR mafia, I too would like to see this rancid 34-page thread promoting the Hecker and Creepy "lump of coal in the stocking parts-pack just in time for the holidays" officially locked.

I'll keep this one open for the moment, but try to stick to the topic and be civil, please.
