Woke up, dragged my butt into work, sat down and remembered... "Hey, doesn't Spore Creature Creator come out today?"
Web browser, Yeah Firefox 3, great looking program.
I guess a million plus users trying to download a program was a bit much for EA. I think the digital distribution was handled by "Digital River Inc." At least that's the name I see on my receipt, but I guess I'll have to stick with the trial version for now (which is still up at spore.com
). Maybe i'll jump on Pirate Bay and get it from there.
: Apparently the game isn't out yet. I spent an hour, yes 1 HOUR trying to get to my purchase receipt so I could get the game link that unlocks EA Downloader, but EA Store would not take my login. So I suckered it into letting me in by finding the link to the receipt in my browser History.
I got in, and there's no link. Either it's not there yet, or EA sucks, or both. I don't know, but I think we've been waiting long enough for this game, yes?]
: Just got an email with the link, it actually doesn't look like a link, but it starts with ealink:blabblabblab... I pasted it into my address bar and EA Downloader fired up and Spore be downloading. Life resumes.]
