Yeah, I DEFINITELY just bought C2 on eBay... OH MY GOD I'm excited! I haven't played in ages--not since my original disc broke--and Ican'twait to start breeding norns again, gengineering, developing heat-resistant norns that thrive off of heavy metals... Ohman! Ohman!
Steve Grand was in an article in the last issue of Seed magazine talking about Creatures alongside Will Wright. Spore was the highlight of the article, but it went into a lot of depth about Creatures. A highlight was when Grand mentioned that he wasn't so eager to compromise science in favor of being cutesy with Creatures as Wright was with Spore.
Steve Grand is a scientist, Will Wright is a game designer. SUPER-BURN.
