Darksnore Trailered

Whoops, bit of a typo in the title there. I'd better fix that later.

Yes, here's first footage - well, sort of - of EA's Spore tech-based Diablolike. So far, I'm a bit worried about this one. I suspect there's a lot more to see - how it plays, specifically - but I can't help but feel someone needs to pull their fingers out as to why we should be excited. The silly name and this rather bland teaser don't get my joy-o-glands jumping. I've definitely always got time for a Diablo kinda thing that isn't Diablo, but it seems a shame that this one isn't a bit more playful. On the other hand - totally customised characters. Most RPGs strenuously (and irksomely) avoid that these days.

It's Spore! It's dark! It's... Darkspore!
