Hands-on and interview with Darkspore

While Ben Perlee was busy writing words about Darkspore, I’ve been hustling up this video for you. Oh Ben, you and your written word. So old fashioned.

I didn’t get into Darkspore with the same level of depth that Ben did, but I did glean some interesting tidbits of info from Mike Perry, one of the game’s head developers. If you’re not up for word-reading right now, but still want a basic overview of Darkspore and why it’s so awesome (set to some fantastically nerdy music), this video could be for you.

Also, points to Mike Perry for getting my Commodore 64 era EA references.

You rock, Mike Perry.
