Steam sales are becoming more frequent, which is great for frugal gamers, but perhaps bad for their wallets.  The current mid-week deal is for Darkspore.  The action-RPG is 40% off during the sale, setting you back a mere $29.99.  We thought rather highly of the game, giving it a 4.5 score in our review.  If you like running around in outer space with up to three friends, killing stuff and collecting loot for your army of characters, it might be time to give Darkspore a chance.

Remember when Beta meant that a game was being released to a select market to see what works and what doesn't? Darkspore on PC played the Beta release correctly and listened to the feedback of the Beta players in order to optimize the game upon release. Delaying Darkspore in all of its Spore-style action by a month to make fixes is a much better solution than pushing the game out and having to wait for patches in order to enjoy your purchase.

When Spore released in 2008 it was an ambitious title that followed the evolutionary progress of a microscopic organism to a spacefaring creature.  It was a critical and commercial success.  How could Maxis improve upon the formula?  Simple.  Take the creature creator from Spore, add loot, and make it an action RPG.  Darkspore is born.

The more I see of Darkspore, the more my PC yearns to be used as a gaming device. Clicking on enemies doesn't normally sound appealing to me, but the way Darkspore does it with such detail and beauty really changes my stance on Diablo-esque PC titles.

Fantasy RPG Hack n’ Slash dungeon crawler Darkspore is getting a bit of the curtains drawn on the gameplay, co-op, and unique elements that we should enjoy playing. Gamespot got a little hands-on time with the game, and they give us a lot to look forward to.
