    Well, its comes out in like 5 days, I'm just now starting to get a little giddy with anticipation. This is gonna be the first game in a while that almost ALL of my friends are picking up, instead of just a certain clique, very cool.
    EDIT- Here's my Sporepedia page, http://www.spore.com/view/profile/Scrub

    So who else is picking this up?

    I've had it pre-ordered since for months now. Had pre-ordered it and the Creature Creator at the same time.

    Can't wait!

    I was wondering why there wasn't a thread on what the developers are calling "The most anticipated game of all time) :D

    Happiness is having boat tanks with booster rockets on them.

    Sadness is never seeing them other than tiny little purple things on the map.

    I've read less than stellar reviews of it so far. People that got it early say it's very boring and repetitive. Also, you only get 3 installs of it before your copy is useless and wont install anymore.

    I've got it downloading right now from EA's site. I did the trick most people seem to be doing, which is changing the country on their account to either Australia or the UK to get the download to complete, rather than keeping it as US and waiting until Mid Day Sunday for it to complete.

    Really, what is the point in making any country wait a few extra days for the Digital Download? I can see having to wait for the boxed edition, but why the digital?

    Got to the tribal stage and I can already feel myself losing interest (i.e. I've hit the walls). The society development is far too limited for my tastes, as is creature creation. In a nut shell, Spore doesn't scale to my creativity. :(  I can only hope an expansion (and you know there's going to be a shit ton of expansions) rectifies this.

    Dude, you can make giant pears with mouths, I dunno what exactly is limiting your creativity there.

    I couldnt figure out how to scale the size of the body forever. You pick an individual piece of the spine and use the mouse wheel to make your, possibly horrific, creation thinner or fatter in that section. Now I fear being attacked by the penis monsters.

    I just checked my system out on Can You Run It and yay I can run it. I thought I was done with PC gaming but with this and Diablo I guess I'm not done yet.
