    Have just been looking at this again and it’s still amazes me just how powerful a tool procedural content is!

    It’s a pity the slides are not working in the slide window because he had some really funny stuff going on there simultaneously while demonstrating Spore. Though having said that, this little snag is outweighed by how cool it is to have his presentation sitting there on the web !

    Everyone please watch it!

    Ooh and this is GDC 2005 not 2004 ;)

    As long as your arthritic fingers are feeling their age with every post, what need could I possibly have to comment?
