Keep practising. You'll get better. A quick tip. You can use the mouse OR keyboard.

The smaller Gamestop / EBgames look like you like your an alien if you don't pre-order and try to grab a copy on release day.

I want to buy it from Direct2Drive but am wondering if you get a backupable download or that craptastic EA downloader thing.

Oh, and noticed this... Direct2Drive charges sales tax, but steam and EA don't. If I got to pay tax I'll go to target lol.
D2D didn't charge me sales tax...

As far as I know, online stores only have to charge sales tax if they have an office or some kind of sales location in your state.

That's the good thing about being in Pennsylvania. There is so little here that I only have to pay tax when dealing with online stores that have a ton of locations world wide (EB\Gamestop, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, etc...).

Wow... some people seem to be pretty pissed about the DRM on this game.

http://www.amazon.com/review/product...owViewpoints=1

Its earned the game a 1.5/5 score on amazon from people who haven't played it and won't buy it until the DRM is removed.

Played through to the space stage. So far I enjoy it. The individual phases are pretty shallow as reported but still fun to play. The space stage is a lot more complex than the others though. Gotta take a break for now.

Interestingly enough, the very first space-faring alien empire I encountered was...myself. Yes, my very first alien encounter was with my own race. I don't know if it was an incredible coincidence or not but I thought it was pretty funny.

So does the evolutionary aspect of the game have any bearing on the later stages, or are the later stages pretty much the same no matter what your creatures are...

I was wondering if it'd limit your ability evolve if you didn't give your creature any kind of grabbers.

Depending on how you choose to act (peaceful vs. aggressive) each stage, you'll be given certain abilities and bonuses. As far as your physical body is concerned I don't believe it is more than aesthetic by the time you get into space.
