Spore gets third patch, free limbs get you 24 parts closer to making your ex

Surprise! Computer games ship with imperfections and then they — get this — receive a patch! Maxis’ Spore just got its third patch, the cleverly titled “Patch 3,” which fixes the following bugs: 

  • Fix for “ESC” key not bringing up Options in Galaxy Game Entry
  • Fix for creator backgrounds appearing on small Sporepedia cards
  • Update to help keep achievements on the server in sync with achievements in the game

Additionally, to make it seem less like a “we fixed some broken crap” update and more of a “really neat new stuff for you” update, they’re throwing in 24 free exoskeleton limbs for the Creature Creator. Presumably, now you can create that guy you see in the header.

And it’s finally all coming together.
