I'm not going to pimp for specific commercial software products very often. Especially not ones that aren't out yet. And really especially ones that aren't out yet and are getting a ton of press elsewhere. Also, I'm not playing anywhere near as many video/computer games as I used to. See: having a kid and trying to keep up with two blogs and other creative projects that aren't games.
All that being said, Spore looks... well... insanely awesome.
