WOOO, Will Wright is being interviewed on Radio 5, and they just asked him my question :D ("How is Spore going, and why's it taking so long?" "It's in final testing, making sure it's playable by anyone, out in 6 months.").

Interactive broadcast media, don't ya just love it.

(Interestingly, he thinks the economic model will move to online in-game monetary systems - so doesn't matter how much the game is pirated, profit will still come in).

I dunno.. Spore is one of those games which is technically very clever.

But i dont see anything that looks like it's any where near being fun!

Looks a bit .. dull.. to me.

ZOO RACE on the other hand...

This might be going totaly off topic. But if you want a good game for dirt cheap and you own a ps3 u will thank me.

I played a game called warhawk. This is one of the best game i have ever tested. It is purley multiplayer for local and online play. You can be in a plane or a vehicle like a tank or walking around with a rocket launcher this game has it all and it will cost you about a fiver bargain if you ask me.

If you have warhawk then let me know what you think. I love it and so did all my mates

GTA IV and Saints Row 2 will be released around the same time (March/April 2008) but I think GTA IV will be better.
Bah.

Saint's Row was loads better than any GTA I've played, though both GTA IV and SR2 should be pretty epic. I'll probably end up getting both, so I'll tell ya then.

Played Super Mario Galaxy for 5 minutes at EB today.

I needed to get acquainted with the Wiimote a little bit. I wish I had more playtime with it, as the game looks beautiful and the soundtrack sounds beautiful.

Hopefully the game won't be short or stupid like Sunshine was.

Sunshine was short????

It took me f***ing ages to complete that one!

Sure, it's short if you fly through just to get to the end screen. But if you go back and try to complete EVERY level - it takes ages.

(this has been the bread and butter of all mario games since mario world - easy to beat, but if you want to complete all the levels it takes forever).

So it wouldnt suprise me if galaxy was the same.

Ratchet and Clank.. Its good!

But i dont know how people can cope playing with the ps3 pad (yuck!) and the main ps3 gui is HORRIBLE!

You talk all that <img> about ps3... and you haven't played one until now?

Language!

But, yeah.. it IS the first "consumer" ps3 i've played on (with final pad/Gui/etc) yes. And the first commercially available game i've played too (apparently the best one).

I dont have a spare mortgage available to get one at home, and there's nowt really on it that appeals to me (apart from ratchet) so i'm limited to use the ones at work.

Why so upset?

Welcome to the games industry!

That's what happens to games testers?

You were testing ratchet were you? So you know old ginger nut Ross then (I think he would've been your boss)?

PS Ross says you're not allowed to talk about testing Ratchet on a public forum - you've signed an NDA.


(and speaking personally from experience - you DONT want to risk upsetting the sony lawyers)
