When I opened my inbox on Saturday morning I was in for a nice surprise. I’d been sent a beta key to Darkspore by the nice people at NVIDIA. Sometimes singing up to product newsletters really does prove useful.
And thus I went about downloading and installing the game. It didn’t take long at all, but then of course there were patches to download and apply as well. So I went to the hairdresser while it worked away and came home to a fully installed and updated game, ready to play. I sat down and clicked start. Not only was I excited, but my hair looked great too!
