More Spore

I really enjoyed Maxis’s Spore…for about a week. But like so many others, I found that the actual gameplay just didn’t have the depth to hold my attention over a long period of time. But now Maxis is readying an expansion pack called Galactic Adventures that, from the video below at least, seems to add more gameplay, plus our #1 gaming buzzword of the 21st century, User Generated Content. Spore creators can now add “Adventures” to the list of things they create and share with other Spore enthusiasts.

I’ll be taking a pretty hard look at this one as it develops. It seems to be that Galactic Adventures could be an add-on that completes Spore and makes it a deeper, long-term game, or it could be throwing good money after bad. Guess we’ll see this spring when it releases.
