Wait, how do you turn Spore into an action RPG? I'm a bit confused by the premise.

Edited by mustachioeugene

damn it, guess I'll just keep writing trivia q's.

Posted by IesuNoel

Yeah, pretty much dumbfounded here too, dude.

Posted by TwoLines

Ehh, no gameplay means no point in watching.

Posted by Insectecutor

Imagine this video but instead of a troll the machine is assembling a big fetid penis, and you have "Darkspore".

Posted by MisterMouse

It will be interesting to see how this turns out.

How dark.

i like the way they're trying to go with the game, but i gotta see some gameplay first

Posted by FreakAche

Weird. I assume this will be a PC game?

If I get to design my dude, my guns, my enemies, my enemies guns, and the vehicles... I'd have to go change my pants.

Cool. Maybe. Perhaps.

not.

Fool me once... 
 
I'll wait to see what the gameplay actually looks like. Spore gave you a lot of customization that didn't really matter much in the end. If they're taking the same approach to an Action RPG, the results could be even worse.

Posted by Vager

Looks similar to the Starcraft 2 teaser.

"Darkspore" is quite possible the dumbest name I've ever heard. It just sounds downright desperate.

Edited by Seppli

Odd. Darkspore sounds like a brainfart to me. Why not make it an all new IP? Has Spore that big of a fan following  to risk alienating and confusing customers by tying in the Spore brand into this game?
 
The game may be sound though. And I don't mean *fartnoise*.

A giant stone turtle?

Could be worse, they could have named it SporeLight and say it's funding a free-to-play MMO...

From what I've gathered from a few screens, it looks like it'll use the creatures (and possibly vehicles) from Spore to pollinate a Diablo-style RPG.

So... yeah ya gonna work on SimCity 5 anytime soon? You know, that game where you build cities? 
 
I... I don't know about this.

Posted by Yummylee

Wonder if they'll eventually turn Sims into a GTA clone why they're at it.

They are doing it because they have no fan following to alienate. No one liked spore so they try to make something they think people will like, in a desperate attempt  to make money on their failed franchise.

Dark... Spore...? Really? REALLY? Ridiculous.....

Posted by RE_Player1

So are they trying to make spore all dark and edgy? I bought it for my Mac, the original Spore, the first couple months of release and have to say it is one of the most overrated an overhyped games ever, more than GTA4 and that's saying a lot. 

Posted by patrick

Darkspore is the most brilliant name for this. It's too good.

Posted by GetBentTheVideoGame

Looks goofy as shit, but I hope it features more of Will Wright's creationist agenda.

Posted by skudfisher

Darkspore: It's just like regular Spore but with the brightness setting on your monitor turned way too low... All it needs is a middle-aged dude with brown hair and stubble...

@GetBentTheVideoGame:  Same here im also hoping its more creative but also that its more limited in a sense like you cant have claws and then evolve and suddenly have paws
Posted by Deusoma

Is it just me, or did they steal the logo from Dark Void? 
 
And of course I don't have any opinion on the game, because I have yet to learn anything about the game.

Posted by ScruffMoney

What about Spore said, "this would be awesome if it was only an action RPG"? Good thing it isn't an MMO. Just think about it. Armies of customized penis-monsters clashing on an epic, giant battlefield. Actually, that'd be phallically awesome, make it so, whoever replace Will Wright!

Spore with jetpacks. SOLD!...(?)
Posted by Tebbit

This appeals to me.

Edited by Kombat

This seems like one of the most off-the-wall occurrences of intellectual property expansion in a while. This is completely different from what Spore was conceived as, and I'd really prefer to be seeing them developing a sequel and delivering more on the ideas that they presented in the original. I can't be sure what they're thinking. Did Spore really sell well enough to warrant depending on the game's brand to sell a game in an presented in an entirely different genre? I'm not so sure.

Posted by Baggykins

aww come on guys.. DARKSPORE? 

Posted by driffter

Are you sure that this is a sequel to the Spore franchise...... it looks more like a totally new game because of the logo..... but meeehh Spore's still a good game for few hours.

I'm with you.  I don't know if we can let this one slide.
Posted by Splodge
@Video_Game_King: I hear ya. I am confused also. and is'nt associating this game completely gung-ho with Spore a bad idea? Spore was awful.
Posted by Splodge
@RE_Player92: Darn tootine. Spore was a colossal waste of time. I was very very angry after i played it for a couple of hours.

A Spore RPG...
 
Do. Not. Want.
 
I want a sim, dammit. Spore wasn't "Maxis" enough. I do not want any more fucking loot!

Posted by Dedodido

WTF was with the weird crystals coming out of the DNA? Do they know how completely rediculous that is?

Posted by Food

spore would have been better if they'd released all the stages separately and made them more complicated than a flash browser game.  i guess cell stage could have been like a free demo or something.  but I would definitely have paid full price for a game that was just the creature stage and included things like water creatures, having creatures actually fill niches instead of wandering around near their nest , and having form actually effect how a creature moves.  all those things were in early game play demos and they just dumbed it down for release.

The only good thing about this video was the Gene Wars flashback I had whilst watching it.
