After many years of waiting, Spore will be released this week…But are you doing your part in purchasing the game?  While I do often rant against EA as a company and their DRM measures, I still would like to support the little guys (Maxis).  At any minute, if EA feels like it they can snap their fingers and shut the doors down on the studio.  I doubt it will happen, but the possibility is always there.

So let me take a minute to tell you that EA hopes…needs Spore to do well.  They have been loosing money for six quarters due to some bad decisions and a few of their games running out of steam (not to EA, that’s why you don’t milk your franchises).  Let’s hope Spore will bring them out of it and carry the franchise forward.
