Anyway, that explains the light posting.
A few observations:
- It's a huge game, especially when you get to the Spacefaring stage at the end.
- It's rather fun to see all the creatures you created in isolation over the last month show up as you're evolving. And then they try to eat you. Or when they show up, the Spore game has blown them up so they are the size of dinosaurs, and they try to stomp you flat.
- And then you try to defend yourself against the creatures attacking you; but your daughter, who designed those creatures three weeks ago--and remembers exactly what she named them!--is emotionally invested in their success, not yours. So when you successfully defend yourself and kill off your attackers, your daughter starts weeping uncontrollably.
- She also starts weeping uncontrollably when one of the cars that you spent so much time designing gets blown up by one of your rival civilizations.
Anyway, as they say: Blogging Will Be Light. :-)
