FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

It’s garbage, ‘nuff said.








P.S. Maybe the lag isn’t the worst part. The only way I got this comic onto the website was to take pictures of them on my desktop, and then bring them into Photoshop! It turns out you can’t even look at the pages without uploading them to MashON’s slow-ass Flash website.

Speaking of ass, you can probably tell there is a harsh profanity filter in the CBC... apparently, the word “artist” is dirty enough for Spore CBC to filter it out. [You artist, you! ~Ed.]

It ultimately took me four hours to build this three-page comic. That’s at least twice as long as it would take me to lay out the pages and arrange art and text in a real program like Paint Shop Pro or (free) Gimp. Remember, the average comic book on the shelf is 26 pages long!

Many of my issues with Spore Comic Book Creator could be reversed. Maybe MashON will patch in an Undo button or a lag fix. The “review build”, however, was this busted heartbreaker, and I can’t recommend in any good conscience such a bad piece of software.
