To: Ash From: Crecente Re: Transportation Machines of DEATH and DESTRUCTION Man, I can't stop playing Spore and it's not just because I want to "beat" it. But also because it's kinda fun. The thing is, I was mildly addicted to Taipan when I was a kid. It was an old text game that had you traveling between ports buying and selling goods and fighting off pirates on the way. That's basically a stripped down version of Spore Space. I can't bother to colonize or attack planets because I'm too obsessed about where I can find the best price for Pink Spice or when I'll be able to off-load my load of red at absurdly high prices. I feel an honest to god tingle when I dump spice and make huge profits.
