This tickled my geeky fascination with portable Web technology too much not to post it. EA and Maxis have sent out a couple of 3D screenshots of Galactic Adventures, the first expansion pack for Spore that's coming out soon. I'm counting on this pack to give Spore the kind of narrative longevity it lacked after you got into the final space phase and had to keep doing the same few mission types over and over ad nauseam. If the Spore player base cranks out a lot of cool missions and story arcs with the included tools, it could be fun to jump back into the ruler's throne in my empire of Flatula and begin dominating the galaxy again.
This one here they call "Infestation."
And this one's "Concert in the Park."
Here's some new regular screenshots too, for the depth-challenged among you.
