    So has anyone here been selected for the beta? If so what do you think of the game?

    I never heard of the game until yesterday. Nvidia randomly sent me this beta invite.
    As for the actual gameplay, I think it could be a little bit more 'fun'. Your attacks need to mean a bit more or at least do a bit more. The game is a little visually stunning. Nothing too amazing. :)

    If you want to check some gameplay out, search some on Youtube or go check out my channel, Xtreme Gaming Presents. I'm not really trying to advertise my channel but just thought it anyone wanted to see the game, head on over. :)

    One thing that I thought was cool is it's apparently an online game. I noticed a chat window in the lobby. Should be fun teaming up with other players.

    I got an invite from W1zz himself, and made an account not tied to my name, so if I end up not liking it, it'll be given away in this thread.

    Sounds cool. I first thought it was like a goth edition of Spore...

    So, any of you that played the beta, is it worth $49.99 for the Limited Edition pre-order? I'm sitting on the fence not sure if I want to take a gamble on it or not. Love Maxis but Spore didn't have enough replay value. I need to know that Darkspore is gushing with replay value before I'm willing to commit.

    Eh.. Honestly, that is a hard question to answer. It's basically a hack and slash kind of game. (sorta)
    The game can be very challenging. Multiplayer is pretty good. There was just something that didn't hook me on to the game.. It can be very fun and challenging but maybe a lack of content? I still can't say that because I was playing in beta.

    Ford, do you have an easy $50 to spare? If you are trying to save money then I would just try to get the regular version.

    That's what I was afraid of. It's probably got the same bug Spore and Borderlands has. Yes, there's a great deal of random content in both those games but it's not random enough to add replay value without a great deal of grinding. I doubt that would be changed going from beta to non-beta. I'm leaning towards not preordering it but I still haven't made up my mind. :(


    Limited Edition is the regular version that is pre-ordered. That is to say, a non-limited edition won't exist after the launch day. The price will be the same.

    OH WOW! Ha! I forgot that I made a few beta videos on my gaming channel. Dude, go check them out of you want. lol

    I must warn you though. I had a lot of caffeine that day. o_O
    There were a few embarassing moments where my voice would get high pitched! I was getting too excited. I probably should of waited till I was sober. :laugh: XD

    Anyway, my channel is my sig. ;)

    Sorry, I need a summary of at least 10 hours worth of gameplay, not a video of someone playing the tutorial. I've played Spore and the expansion extensively so I know generally how it will look, play, and feel. I just need to know how well they executed the mechanics that ultimately form game addictions. XD


    I got to make my decision before the 24th. That gives me about a week to decide...

    10 hours worth? Eh.. Those two videos took around a total of about 6-7 hours to record, edit and render. :/ 10 hours may be out of the question.:laugh:

    I tried it. For about 10 minutes. I hate it, felt too slow, it was boring. I wont bother with it.

    I thought about it, and thought about it, and thought about it some more and pre-ordered it. I'll let you know how it is sometime in May. XD

    Same. Only one way to find out. :(

    I have high hopes but EA always disappoints. I'm mentally ready for it. XD
