I imagine something called "darkspore" as the reason why people are having sneezing fits this spring. Or, it could have something to do with the Will Wright/Maxis game Spore, that EA publishes. The latter is more likely, of course.
The name "Darkspore" has shown up in three separate trademarks (1, 2 and 3) filed by EA recently. This could easily be the to-be-announced Spore title that EA mentioned they'd be releasing in 2011 in a recent financial report.
There's an EA earnings call going on tomorrow, so we may hear more about this title. Or allergy.
