My animal is called Vertebrus Maximus!

For those who do not know, I have a Significant Other. Otherwise known as Mr. Scicurious-in-training, (Mr. SiT), he is teh awesome. If you have been stunned by my charisma, charm, and general nerditude, you shall have to compete against him, and I don’t put odds on your success. As one of the many examples of his greatness, when I got to his place the other day (and after we watched the Presidential debates, which is another aspect of his spectacularity), he revealed a present for me. He got me Spore!!
First, I must confess, I’m not a gaming-type person. I’ve never understood the lure of Nintendos or computer games. So it was completely surprising how quickly I got hooked.
I’ve been having a TON of fun making creatures and changing stuff up. But I will say that it’s not evolution. I mean, aside of the time frame and stuff like that. More legs don’t give you an increase in speed, if you’re an herbivore, you really aren’t effective no matter what your weaponry, and “charming” other animals to make them your allies is a little…sweet. But it’s so much fun!! It’s really interesting to work at gaining certain attributes, and working out what you have to sacrifice to get all the attributes you want. On the other hand, I’m not even up to the tribal stage. So I’ve got much further to go! My personal ambition is to get a society with jetpacks. Or actual winged flight. Anyone know if I can do that? And I would REALLY love to go back to the water and become an aquatic culture.

  1. You can make a sort of winged flight – very high level wings can let you fly a pretty good distance. Not forever, but a very long way. I’ve not tried it in tribal mode yet to see how that goes.

  2. Neither is possible I’m afraid.
    That is until someone manages to mod the game.

  3. My son just got Spore. He says it’s possible to revert to water or become a flyer, but at this point he wants to do other stuff. Once he does it, I’ll let you know how he did it.

  4. I don’t actually own spore, but a comsci friend of mine explained it too me (I think she was going to be doing something for a project that would help spore in some way :p). What i thought its greatest problem was was that you couldn’t just stick with the bacteria, and form a highly advanced and awesome society of single-celled organisms (perhaps occasionally grouping into colonies, with the odd specialisation, but no more multicellular than that).
    Sort of ‘attack of the killer sponges’.

  5. What’s your sporepedia?

    I like her designs better…

  6. Chris: I shall pass it on to Mr. SiT. We keep the game at his house so I won’t play it when I should be doing things like work. Because I totally would! Be nice to my creature, apparently it’s already been domesticated in the name of Mr. SiT’s civilization. 🙂

  7. thank you
