Spore on the Move

The time of no information has passed.
E3 2006 is here, and information on Spore is rearing its head once again.

For those that don't know, Spore is the only game of which I've ever followed the Development.
Spore is the codename for Sim Everything!
Because Spore Sounds much more interesting, the codename became the real name.
Essentially you start as a single cell organism, and develop into a dominant species with technological abilities of godlike proportions.

The innovation of this game is Twofold.
a) Player Generated content - All in-game content will be created by players of the game.
b) Procedural Content - Animation, Textures & Entire Galaxy in a Box will be created via algorithms.

As for release date: April or Early May 2007

I'm excited to play. You just might be too.

Edit - The Game has an OFFICIAL release date. Sept 5 2008 - MY BIRTHDAY.

OK technically that is the European release date - in the US, it is releasing on the 7th.

What a Kid!

She can flip herself over. She's been doing it since she was about a week old. She stopped for a while but she's on the move again. She's very happy - smiles and laughs. And she likes to talk. She's trying to crawl, usually she just spins herself around in a circle, her arms are still a bit of a mystery to her. If her current behavior is any indicator, She's gonna be a chatterbox, and very active.

For those of you not in the know.
  • Current Tectonic Plate theory is incorrect, planets Grow like Geodes.
  • There is a Hole in Washington State that is, for all intensive purposes, Bottomless.
  • Said Hole was commandeered by the US Government.
  • There is another "Bottomless" Hole in an Undisclosed area in Arizona.
  • Best theory: Atlantis Lies under our Southern Polar Ice Cap.
  • Conspiracy Theory's are a Plenty (and there just may be a little truth in some).
  • Bigfoot/Yetti is Real.
  • So are a plethora of other creatures (Chupacabra, Thunderbird, Nessie to name a few) Maybe.
  • The Sun has a Solid Ferrite Core.

Not a Programmer

I've got to finally put together a Web-comic.

This is motivated by two things.

1) I've gotta make more money to take care of my Family
2) I've gotta make more money so I can get art tools (read: Laptop)

But tonight I have 3D work to do.
And I need to Mow the Lawn.

Indeed I certainly am a Slacker.

I haven't posted in quite some time. I have a Beautiful baby girl now. Moira is her name.
I'm hoping to be a bit more dilligent.
