    An end to an era? Bloomberg: Eve Online Owners Said to Weigh Game Maker Sale After Approaches "CCP hf, the Icelandic game developer that created the cult classic Eve Online game, is exploring strategic options including a sale of the business after receiving interest from potential bidders...

    CCP Closing SF Office

    From Blues News: And it is only going to get worse as Elite moves closer to release. Elite is the type of space game people have wanted for years. Eve Online was a good substitute...but just that: a substitute. If Elite launches in...

    Project Legion Announced by CCP

    I am getting the sense that this is their DUST game but with a new coat of paint for the PC: Project Legion announced, a first person shooter set in the Eve universe We'll see. CCP's track record hasn't been stellar (pun) when it comes to making games other than EVE.

    EVE Valkyrie Announced

    With the likes of Elite Dangerous and Star Citizen on the horizon, CCP is going to need to do something to get away from the often dull combat of Eve Online. This is a good direction to go:

    EVE Cruciible

    CCP is wasting their time making games, they should instead focus on making movies! They always have great trailers with great music. :cool: Does anybody know if they made any improvements to missions? One of the things that always annoys me...

    Planetary Customs Offices

    I haven't even gotten into the whole PI aspect of the game. Not sure of the implications of this. :) Opinions?

    CCP Postmortem Discusses Virtual Item Sales

    It seems to me that CCPs real problem is a lack of follow-through. After reading a bunch of these articles on past CCP expansions, it seems like CCP gets really excited by a concept, rushes it into an expansion, and then loses interest when it comes to handling all the nitty-gritty minutia the...

    Dust 514

    I don't know why I am even posting this - I'm still sore over how CCP dumped their PC loyalists in favor of the easy console cash. Still, I guess it makes sense to keep tabs on this game as it is probably gonna wind up on the PC at some point - and probably as a F2P. :D DUST 514 Interview...

    A New Humbler CCP

    I wanted to post this out front, but its been one of those days where I've managed a bare 15 minutes on the PC all day. Sheesh! Anyhoo, this is interesting stuff. First, we have Hellmar making this interesting mea culpa: Don't know if this is good or bad, but that letter reads like a carbon...

    About those captain's quarters....

    Now that I got a chance to try Incarna and my captain's quarters, I can understand why the EVE community was so ticked off with this expansion. Really, what was the point? To be fair, CCP did a decent job in crafting their new avatar system. The quarters look sharp (I love the giant screen TV...

    CCP reveals World of Darkness details to bloodthirsty fans

    DUST 514 Completely Screws Microsoft

    Okay, we knew CCP's DUST 514 was not coming to the PC anytime soon, but today we learned it is not coming to the XBOX either! It is going to be PS3 exclusive, one that is also going to be supported by micro-transactions. E3 2011: Dust 514 is a PS3 exclusive, supported by micro-transactions...

    A Future Vision

    CCP released "a future vision" video of EvE today...and what a vision it is: Top Story: A Future Vision Cool. :cool:

    EvE is "Real"

    I do agree with this sentiment. CCP has made a game that ditches the game-y mechanics found in just about every other game and instead decided to make a title that resembles "real life" - with all the difficulties and complexities that implies - in more ways than one. That takes a lot of...

    Some Items I would Like to See from CCP's Store

    As usual, I am enjoying my sci-fi vacation (as I like to call my periodic EvE sessions :) ). The game really feels like it is coming along nicely. I can't quite put my finger on just what has changed, but it just feels more engaging since last year. I think CCP is back-filling a lot of...
