Spore Gets Release Date

Came across this in CVG about two weeks ago.. I hadn’t heard anything about this title before.
The setup: your main character is Alex Mercer, the result of some weird genetic experiment gone (cue horns) horribly horribly wrong and you get to wander around New York using your powers to figure [...]
