Ever since I got Spore several weeks I have been so f****** pissed.
My laptop won't even run the game anymore.
When I started playing the first day I got it I was happy and started it up. It crashed after the download so I assume just a quick restart should have it running soon. SO I did and it worked. I got to start playing the cell stage, the creature stage, the tribal stage, and the civ stage. But by the time I had arrived in the Space stage, it couldn't go on. It crashes every time I try t go into the game to Play. However, if I go into a Creator in the menu, it works well enough to have fun making stuff.
But honestly, the real reason I bought SPORE was so that I could roam the stars.
