Darkspore Hero Creator Preview Update!

You know, I always thought the one problem with Spore was that there wasn't enough action! You know, stuff blowing up, maybe some kind of helicopter creature that could shoot rockets or something. Thankfully, Maxis is way ahead of me. Their upcoming Action RPG Darkspore takes my suggestion about a helicopter creature and blows doors off of it.
Still, I had some questions about how much of the creature creator would fit in with this new Spore direction. Hours and hours could be spent creating
Maxis is relying on Darkspore's AI Director to maintain balance in the game. The AI Director will pay attention to the types of heroes you bring in, whether you're playing co-op or not. The AI Director will also tune the game on the fly to dynamically address how well you're doing.
If the words "AI Director" ring a Left-4-Dead-branded bell, you've got the right idea. Perry mentioned Valve's zombie games by name and mentioned that you'll be able to test your wits against Darkspore's AI Director in a public beta launching for the game soon.
