Gaming News: "Milking It"
Posted: Thursday January 22nd, 2009 by

EA Maxis is planning on releasing 4 Spore related titles this year. Spore: Galactic Adventure, an expansion to Spore's space stage. Spore: Creature Keeper, a tamagotchi-esqu PC standalone product aimed at younger gamers. Spore: Hero, an adventure style game for the Wii. And Spore: Hero Arena for the Nintendo DS. No official release dates beyond "this year" have been given for any of the four titles. Though it is expected that the two PC titles will be released before the two Nintendo titles.

There's not much more I feel I need to add to this topic. I think the comic, though wordless, says everything that needs to be said about it. Completely expectedly, EA is milking one of it's biggest selling properties. And hey, that's fine. Everybody else does it too. I won't judge it to be right or wrong, there's no point. People will either buy the games or they won't. My opinion of the situation matters not at all.

And as a side note, if someone had told me in 2000 that I'd be drawing cow teets in my comic, I might have looked at them funny before asking "is it going to be a comic about an EA or an Activision title?"
