Darkspore's Zrin the Sun Fist is a tank

There's really no better way to describe him. He's big, deals a lot of close-quarters damage and is the primary subject of this new Darkspore video. Listen, if you dare, to some very dry narration of his assorted powers along with gam...

New Darkspore gameplay trailer

I increasingly get the impression that you lot don't care about Darkspore. And it's hard to blame you for that. I had grave doubts about it when I saw the game earlier this year, but I came away impressed that Maxis was attempting to take ...

BioWare writer helping to pen Darkspore fiction

Stemming from a small comment in a GameStop article, reports have been spreading that Mass Effect and Dragon Age developer BioWare is assisting Maxis in the development of Darkspore. As we've discovered, that's not entirely accurate. It's j...

The creation of a Living Weapon in Darkspore

Here's a little tease for Maxis Studios' recently announced Darkspore. It's a rendered cinematic showing the process used by the Crogenitors to create one of their Living Weapons. It doesn't actually tell you anything about the game whatso...

Preview: Darkspore

The basis for much of my opinion on Spore comes, unfortunately, from its spin-off games for consoles and handhelds. While the original title was something which captured my interest, my inability to commit to a life of PC gaming by upg...

Comic-Con schedule leaks Spore role-playing game

Modern Warfare 2 is most-pirated game of 2009

Spore Hero shows off some creation

Spore is kind of becoming the village bicycle for gaming genres. Sure it started out as a ambitious simulator, but now its also been an adventure game, an RTS game and an odd DS game. Up next for a ride is platforming and fighting and the s...
