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...

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...
