Spore and Dead Space At SCI-FI London

Electronic Arts are sponsoring the SCI-FI London film festival at the Apollo West End theatre, which runs from 30 April – 4 May. The interesting part for us, however, is that Mass Effect, Command & Conquer 3: Kane’s Wrath, Spore, Boom Blox (Spielberg’s Wii thing), and Dead Space will be playable at the event. Man, there’s going to be a fight over that Spore booth. Find out more about the science fiction bonanza (which includes a load more than videogame promos) over here. And I might see you there.

    this looks like the back of a tribal Banjo Kazooie, or a mumbo jumbo experiment gone wrong. or right?

  3. terry says:

    That screenie makes Spore look even more batshit insane than I was led to believe.

  4. Mike says:

    Hmm. Spore looks like a game for the first time ever in that screenshot!

    Colour me intrigued, and a little bit hungry. I should eat.

    EDIT – Haha. Right on exams. Screw you.

  5. Tak says:

    That may be boom blox, instead? Just guessing by the musical note.

    Spore, must have vids, need vids!

  6. terry says:

    I R dumm. I saw the word “Tribe” and assumed this was the stage of Spore where you add sax-mouths :(

  7. Jim Rossignol says:

    It’s Spore.

  8. RichPowers says:

    Someone please tell me if Spore still has black holes in the intergalactic exploration phase. And if so, please direct your space ship over the event horizon for me :)

  9. Tak says:

    Nah, I be teh dummeh here. I didn’t know spore let you feature weird trumpet mouths ;)

  10. Ging says:

    Tak – I think they’re actually just trumpets, part of the tribal phase is using music to befriend other tribes (if you choose to go down the peaceful route that is).

  11. Stromko says:

    It’s still great how bewildered the other tribe’s creature looks. “How, how could be? Dey make noise with metal sticks! Brain hurt! UNGH! Okay I’ll join your tribe.”

  12. darkripper says:

    They got wings! My hope for avian and submarine civilizations got squashed awhile ago, but I still hope the feature will appear in a future expansion pack or a downloadable update.
