    CCP Closing SF Office

    From Blues News: http://www.bluesnews.com/s/154519/ccp-closing-sf-office 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...

    The Fate of EVE Online

    Word has it that CCP, creators of EVE Online, are closing their SF office and laying off numerous support staff. How that will affect EVE over the long term is uncertain, but it got me thinking about the state of the game and where it's headed. And, sadly, from where I sit it doesn't look good...

    Video footage of the titanic battle in B-R (1080p available)

    A pretty juicy battle from B-R that saw no less than 70 titans perish, which is a new record for EVE Online. That comes out to be about $500k in real US dollars that was destroyed in this fight. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCK-E5AopVI

    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: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=KmNQEiJUthc

    EVE Coming to TV?

    While I expect the graphic novel to arrive as promised (free if you get it digitally? I don't think this is going to be high quality), I don't expect to ever see an actual TV series. Don't get me wrong: I would LOVE to see a faithful TV series based on the game. But making that a reality...

    EON is no more

    Time to throw out my back issues. The best thing about EON were the short stories. The rest was too concerned with high-level stuff, like capital ship loadouts and competitive PvP. I think EON left too many casual players out in the cold, hence, their ultimate failure. Eh, it is all...

    What would you change about EVE?

    The official forums are a constant battleground with people suggesting changes, nerfs, and fixes and trolls shouting them down. It's a little quieter here. So what would you change about EVE?

    Getting the itch again...

    Damn it. For all of EVE's problems -- and there are mountains of them -- it still has a unique appeal.

    The best I can say about EvE is that I tried.

    Having become pretty well bored with Star Trek Online, two weeks ago I gave EvE a try, and I'm sorry to say that I absolutely hated it. Being a serious gaming and scifi fan, I wanted to love this game, I really did. After all, unlike STO, in EvE you can actually experience the rise and fall of...

    EVE Cruciible

    CCP is wasting their time making games, they should instead focus on making movies! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HrrVDV_NsNo 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. http://www.eveonline.com/devblog.asp?a=blog&nbid=2899 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...

    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...

    EVE Hacked!

    I'm really get sick of these hackers targeting their own kind. Sure, we all laughed when the corpses at Citi Bank or the collars at the IMF were hacked - that was funny, but this...not so much. Eve Online Taken Down by Hackers (satire, people, satire)
