Currently i was writing mostly about free to play games, recent betas and a few pay to play projects that aren’t exactly new to the gaming market. This is another post about a game that is not a newborn project – Eve Online. It’s rather a “Nostalgia, you’ve got me…” post than an actual review because i can’t review a game i’m not playing for over a year now (and i’m not going back just to look at it for the sake of doing the review post), but i spend several years of my life in Eve Online since 2006. Eve changes, yes, more new expansions come out every now and then, but the core structure of the game do not change – it’s about freedom, socialization and war (for me – in that particular order). When i come back, i see the technical details like ships and skills being changed, but the core is always there, all the same. This MMO was always more than a game for the most people who played it (not excluding me) – it was a lifestyle more than a game, a parallel world where we lived another life – and i never saw another online game that would make me form a bond strong anywhere near to that one. I’ve made real life friends in Eve Online, one of whom even came over from another country for a visit. And this is my story of living an Eve Online life. (more…)

EVE Online is a sci-fi spaceship-themed MMORPG by CCP Games, famous for running on just one enormous clustered server, and soon EVE’s 14th free expansion is coming out. So CCP wants you back! If you ever played EVE Online, that’s it. I’ve started playing it around 2005, so they keep spamming me with new offers all the time… Anyway, today CCP starts another of their “come back, we are white and fluffy now!” – returning players get 5 days of free game time to see if CCP is really all white and fluffy now. The offer stands until November 21st and those who used it also get a discounted 60 days subscription price. Funny how they made it up to 60 days for $19.95 now, old “returning campaigns” were supplied with a discount for 30 days subscription ($9.95 or something like that). (more…)
