Spore rocks my socks

I’ve been playing with the spore creature creator and it’s really really entertaining.  I mean you get a free trial to mess around and create things before the game comes out that you can use later.  It’s a really great idea if you ask me :).  I made a few creatures myself to play with and  yes there are only a limited supply of starting parts but it’s free so deal with it!  I wouldn’t shell out the $10 beforehand anyways.  What’s the point if you just pay for it later and you can’t use the critters until then?

Anyways this little guys name is Saucenar :).  Here’s a few shots of him doing stuff.
On the left he’s singing and on the right he’s being angers…grr!

This one’s name is Peggles hehe.
On the left he’s punching and on the right he’s dancing.

If you haven’t figured it out from the pictures, once you make them you can do a test drive of them. Run them around, make them angry, sad, scared, or just dance. The game is expected to come out September 7, 2008 but who knows if it will get pushed back more. I have high hopes for this game to be just as addicting if not more than Sims. But I highly recommend the free trial if you haven’t played with it yet.

For a closer look at these guys you can go to the Sporepedia to see mine or other peoples creations. Careful there maybe adult content spore critters lol ;).

Buzz and Woody are back!

So there’s a bunch of new Pixar movies coming out in the next 3 years including a new Toy Story movie. First the 2 prior Toy Stories are gonna come out in 3-D and then the new Toy Story 3 will be out June 18th, 2010. The 3-D movies are coming out October 2nd, 2009 and February 12th, 2010. Toy Story 3 is supposed to be when Andy is going off to college. It used to be about a toy recall on Buzz Lightyears but that script got shelved when Circle 7 was shutdown after Pixar was put in charge of all Disney Animation. Also Pixar has a Cars 2 coming out which is ok but I didn’t enjoy the first one that much.

In terms of new movies there’s one called Up coming out May 29th 2009. It’s supposed to be about an old man who used to explore the world but is now too old. He meets an 8-year old boy that loves to explore and you can imagine the plot from there :).

In summer 2011 there’s another new movie coming out called Newt. It’s about the 2 last blue-footed newts on the planet. They’re forced together to try and save the species but they really hate each other. Should be pretty funny when it comes out.

Finally, Pixar is coming out with a fairytale. That should make for an amazing movie. It’s called the Bear and the Bow and it’s about a girl that’s part of a royal family that would rather be an archer instead. Her mother disagrees with this decision whole-heartedly, shocker :). This puts the whole kingdom into great peril. I’m really excited to see this and I can’t believe Pixar hasn’t done a fairytale before considering all the cool stuff they could do in CG. Btw it’s coming out Christmas 2011.

Disney also has a movie coming out Christmas 2010 which I believe is also being made by Pixar. It’s Rapunzel and the character looks really cute :).
