The outcome of all this will depend…

13 moral lessons from PC games

When the historians of the future cast their cyber-eyes over the deluge of stupidity we encrusted upon the primitive internet, they will see that our fables, our moral storytelling, was mostly conducted with flashing colours and double-jumps. Yes, videogames have adopted the moralistic finger-wagging of fairytales and Victorian novels, for better or for worse. They have taught us a lot about ourselves and our place…

We talked to Eve Online’s devs about faction warfare, Loyalty To Lowsec and other seasonal updates

CCP, the developers of the famously complicated space MMO Eve Online, have taken a new approach to their updates in recent months. They've split each year into three-month 'quadrants', during which they'll release smaller, more regular features and changes along a common theme - not unlike 'seasons' as used by many other online games. The first of these quadrants, titled Fight Or Flight, began this…

Video games to play while you’re self isolating and social distancing

Unless you're in one of those international versions of Big Brother that are still going on, you've probably noticed that we're in the midst of a pandemic of something called the Covid-19 virus. I can tell it's serious because my dad's American girlfriend isn't allowed to visit him, which means he's bored and phoning me in the middle of the day. Haha, I joke. But…

Feature: Where space pilots get spanked

I went mingling with Eve Online’s space scoundrels in Las Vegas

“Any excuse for explosions.” “GreyGal” says this with a good-natured shrug as she finishes telling me her story. A few years back, an Eve Online player got a touch too merry in Planet Hollywood and hit on somebody’s wife. It led to a "fairly moderate war". The offence took place here in Las Vegas, but the fighting only broke out later, once the belligerents had…

What’s it like being the editor of a newspaper in Eve Online?

Hello, I’m Curt, and I am the editor of a space newspaper. New Eden Report covers events and conflicts from the Icelandic space MMO Eve Online, known for its player-run universe (or the time $300,000 worth of spaceships died). Many non-Eve players may be aware of these large fights, the ones that make it to mainstream gaming media. For instance, the recent rout where hundreds…

Feature: #SOLO

How EVE Online is embracing the solo player with Into The Abyss expansion

The first mistake I made when I sat down to speak with Andie 'CCP Seagull' Nordgren, the executive producer of EVE Online, was referring to the changes in the upcoming 'Into the Abyss' expansion as "single player"."There is no single player in EVE. There is no single player in EVE," Nordgren corrected me. "You can play solo, but never single player. It's an important distinction."Into…

“Below our lowest expectations” – why EVE devs CCP pulled out of VR

Six months ago, EVE Online developer CCP Games pulled out of the virtual reality market. The move came as a shock, given how well-suited and devoted CCP seemed to be to the tech, with international studios in the US and UK working on VR titles, and a tech-savvy EVE player base who were more likely to adopt VR early in its development cycle. As recently…

Feature: All trailer, no trash

Our favourite PC game trailers

The game trailer is a sly creature. It wants to entertain you, to excite you, to embolden you with curiousity. But it also wants to sell you a bunch of code wrapped up in some 3D shapes. Some trailers turn out to be more artful than the game they’re hawking, others plant sneaky emotions in your head with music. However, some are better than others.…

‘You will lose both hands’ – How the biggest theft in EVE Online history ended in death threats

It seems every time sci-fi MMO EVE Online [official site] is in the news, it's because someone has been screwed over in the most spectacular way imaginable. From record-breaking heists and scams to public assassinations and spy infiltrations, New Eden has been home to some incredible tales of espionage, theft, and political intrigue. This month another chapter in EVE's long and bloody history came to…

The games chasing EVE’s vision of a single shard MMO

The planet is full of aimless people. Dozens of non-descript robots silently going to and fro, with no discernable purpose or meaning. Yes, I’m at Gamescom, the annual gaming conference in Germany, but I’m not talking about the visitors on the show floor. I’m talking about the on-screen player bots of Dual Universe [official site], a sci-fi survival MMO making big promises about player numbers…

The VR believers and doubters at EVE Fanfest

It wasn't hard to find the VR doubters at EVE Fanfest. One high profile EVE Online player told me he had no interest in CCP’s VR games but would “rather they have new teams working on VR than moving people from EVE to something like World of Darkness, which was left in the corner like a rotten apple.”Another said he was “glad that the VR…

Searching for the truth of a fake world at EVE Fanfest

“When I’m here, [my real self] is at home. I’m my character. But right now, I’m not my character, because my character hates that guy's character. He fucked up my life in the game. But Alex [the person behind the character] is lovely, he’s always been good to me. So if I introduce you to him, don’t be a dick, because that’ll be on me…

The power of gaming communities

For three years, many of my evenings and weekends have been spent online with the Rock, Paper, Shotgun community – posting announcements, managing servers, and hosting events. By doing this I’ve met hundreds of people and have developed some great friendships. I've enhanced the experience of playing games for myself and others, and in the process I've gained skills to progress my career in ‘real…

Could Gambling Kingpins Be Ruining EVE Online?

A year ago the Imperium was seen as an absolute—a kind of immutable law of the universe in EVE Online [official site]. They were the biggest coalition backed by the richest players armed with the most cunning diplomatic team. Around their central alliance, the Goonswarm Federation ('goons'), were staunch allies who would hold the line if anyone dared invade. Their capital in the region of…

From Dust: CCP’s New Free-To-Play FPS Project Nova

Dust 514, the free-to-play EVE Online shooter for the Playstation 3, was a bit of a tragedy for me. It was both relentlessly ambitious and sadly crippled, hamstrung by its attempt to create a microcosm sandbox with a complex relationship to its big brother, EVE Online. But after talking with Snorri Árnason, the senior director for CCP's new FPS, Project Nova, I'm worried that the…
