I'm quite tempted to checkout Starcraft II, and if Mass Effect doesn't work out on 360, I'm sure it will on PC. :D

I'm just excited about Spore because I've been playing Will Wright games since the beginning. One of the first games I ever played was SimCity. Spore is the most ambitious project Will Wright has ever undertaken. It could be one of the best games ever made, or it could be an epic failure.

To be honest, recent videos make it look like it's aimed at the 5-8/mentally retarded demographic. Lots of primary colours! Not very much else... to be honest, greater potential means more disappointment. People should stop eating up the hype. Even if it's awesome, it won't be half as awesome as the decade or so of hype has said it will be.
