I have several fun Real Science(TM) posts in the works… But today I got the new SPORE Creature Creator*… So I guess you all figured out where my evening went… LOL!
I made a SPORE ARNIE!!!!
Im already in love with SPORE Arnie. Though SPORE follows the cliche unicellular< multicellular < aquatic animal < land animal evolution 'ladder', I can see myself getting emotionally attached to my creatures (even though I really want to be a virus and destroy other peoples civilizations *pout*). Its already gotten bad, after I gave SPORE Arnie some puppies to play with, and I heard them bark and howl at one another. The babies howl just like baby puppies!!!! So I seriously teared up a little bit... cause Im that cool. Real Arnie grew concerned about the SPORE puppies (hes such a thoughtful pup!).
* Dont worry, your ERV might have moved to ScienceBlogs, but shes still a D-list blogger. Uncle Greg and Uncle Bora had to convince EA to add me to The List. And though we were supposed to be able to download it on Friday. But my email sign in didnt work. So I called and talked to a nice fellow somewhere in San Francisco (and bitched at him about how you cant be a virus in SPORE), and they sent me a copy through snail-mail. LOL!
