After the long-awaited “No Man’s Sky” came out, many gamers felt disappointed because of the many broken promises by Hello Games, terrible performance on PC and the fact that the game had a $60 launch price (that´s still the price for NMS sky at the moment…). So much so that many Gamers have compared the letdown of “No Man’s Sky” launch to what happened when “Spore” got released back in 2008 (a game that was going to combine the Action genre with RTS and a God Game, but it ended up being five shallow mini-games combined into a big game according to many).

“Spore” has a lot of positive reviews on Steam at the moment.

Would you like to see a “Spore 2” happen?

So as you might imagine, I got quite surprised when I heard that “Spore” has been doing truly well for itself on steam (at least with regards to review scores). As the game has received some very positive overall reviews as of lately. So apparently wounds do heal over time, and maybe the gamers which were disappointed when “Spore” launched learned to appreciate the game for what it was, not to mention that as of now you could get “Spore” and all its DLC for $10 which many would consider more than a fair price.

It appears as if people like “Spore” much more than they like “No Man´s Sky”. In the matter of fact, Gamers even recommend people to pick up “Spore” instead of “No Man´s Sky”.

“Spore” (2008) Vs “No Man´s Sky” (2016) 1 – 0!

That´s just the half it though. You see. I found it to be rather interesting to see that the top reviews for the past month seem to be from people who were truly unhappy and really mad at No Man’s Sky, In what I can only describe as an act of Reverse Steam Bombing, while Steam Bombing has been used to punish a game or company with bad reviews in this case gamers decided to show appreciation for a 7-year-old game that in their opinion is much better than “No Man’s Sky”.

give us spore 2

I find it to be somewhat funny that “No Man´s Sky” has created a demand for a sequel to “Spore” (not to mention the.

Furthermore, even in one of the reviews one of the fans is asking for an “SPORE 2!”, and while I’m not against the idea itself. One should ask him or herself if we really can trust EA and Maxis to make an honest attempt at creating anything experimental like SPORE again? Only time will tell.

And with that said, what´s your take on this matter? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section down below!

    Trust EA?

    • Well of course 😉 *cough cough*

      • John Smith.

        Given their last few offerings I’m not sure I can find myself trusting EA.
        Especially not since Mirror’s Edge Catalyst started off by demanding I allow EA to spy on my activity, read my e-mails and make a log of who my contacts and search history was… On my PS4!

        • I can´t say that I trust them all that much, then again. It´s been years since I trusted them. Bloody hell mate :S They did that? Didn´t EA get sued for doing that?

          • John Smith.

            I don’t know, but I found it annoying as f*** and settled for disconnecting my PS4 to keep it from trying to reconnect to their server every time I played the game.
            Hopefully all EA programs have been removed from my PS4 after I deleted ME: Catalyst.

          • I bet you did, as I would have felt the same way as you did (and most likely still do). That sounds beyond insane imo :S

          • John Smith.

            And that is why I won’t buy a game that EA has touched.

          • I feel ya, so I take it that you won´t touch BF1 either? 😛

          • John Smith.

            Yup, not one single EA game will touch my PS4 and PC .

          • Ah, and you´ve been doing that for years now?

          • John Smith.

            Well no, I did pick up Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst when it came out so it hasn’t even been a year yet.

          • Ah, hmm. I think my last EA title was BF4 😛

  • ParadoxReign

    I rather play NMS than one game from EA.

    • Whatever rocks your boat 😉

      • ParadoxReign

        Just as I would say =)

        • =) Right now though, I play mostly indie and Asian games.
