I just noticed Spore is coming out in a week or something.
I've been really interested in trying this game online, I noted a disappointing factor in the product description on Amazon:
"While Spore is a single player game, your creations and other players’ creations are automatically shared between your galaxy and theirs, providing a limitless number of worlds to explore and play within. Internet Connection Required."
I have the full version creature creator because it's so fun to make creatures, but now I see that when you "play online" you're really just submitting your creations and downloading other peoples' creations from a network.
Bottom line: no player interaction. Is anybody okay with this? It pretty much drops my interest in playing it completely.
