EVE Online
"It's super depressing," Andie Nordgren said with a sort of semi-defeated smile. She's the executive producer of EVE Online, one of the deepest and most complex sandbox video games in existence, and she's reacting to a key st...   read

EVE Online
Earlier this week, the Citadel expansion came to EVE Online. Two years ago, developer CCP moved toward releasing more frequent updates for the game, so this type of event is a relatively regular occurrence. Citadel, howe...   read

EVE Online's real-world science project is going unprecedentedly well

Earlier this year, CCP Games, Massively Multiplayer Online Science, and Reykjavik University jointly announced Project Discovery. The program is ostensibly an EVE Online mini-game that presents players with images of protein patterns w...

 
Project Nova
EVE Online developer CCP has a new first-person shooter but there's a chance no one will ever get to play it unless they happen to be in Reykjavik, Iceland this weekend. Project Nova is the name of the game, a monik...   read

EVE Valkyrie will be cross-play between Oculus, Vive, and PlayStation VR

EVE Fanfest is in full swing, as the convention's opening keynote just ended. The presentation was mostly a "Welcome to Iceland!" kind of affair, with more of an emphasis on community than news. However, CCP dropped one really interesting ...

Give me a punk rock EVE Fanfest

This past weekend, I was at a small local concert in Colorado. My friends were playing, and that's more than enough reason for me to go see a show. Toward the end of the night, just before they went on, some punk rock kid came up and drunke...

EVE Valkyrie is jetting off to Oculus-competitor Vive

Even though EVE Valkyrie was pegged as one of the Oculus' flagship launch titles, that doesn't mean that CCP has any particular loyalty to Oculus. EVE Valkyrie is free to spread its wings and soar off to as many different platform...

EVE Online's new Great War is upon us, here's what it looks like

EVE Online just saw one of its biggest and most destructive fights of all-time. With almost 6,000 pilots participating, developer CCP says the Battle of M-OEE8 was the second largest in the game's history. Here are some pictures showing wha...

 
EVE: Valkyrie
Virtual reality software providers are in a weird spot this early in the game. They need to push the tech to its limits to really sell people, while other developers have to provide traditional experiences that help justify the platform. The latter is basically what CCP Games did for EVE: Valkyrie.   read

CCP shutting down PS3-exclusive Dust 514, segueing into PC shooter

At EVE Fanfest 2014, CCP announced a prototype called Project Legion, a new PC shooter in the EVE Online universe. We were immediately left to wonder what this meant for Dust 514 which already fills that shooter role but as a PS3 ...

Oculus Rift pre-orders come bundled with one of the best VR games

If you want to sell VR, you need the ardent early adopters to show it off and the people they show it off to to be impressed. To that end, it helps to have some dang good software support, so it makes sense that EVE: Valkyrie will be includ...

 
EVE: Valkyrie preview
EVE: Valkyrie has been one of the best full-game showings for virtual reality (versus novel tech demos, which are still my favorite use of VR) for a while now and as we edge towards the early 2016 wave of VR release (Rift, Vi...   read

CCP unveils 'Gunjack,' a new VR arcade shooter set in the EVE universe

CCP has another new game up its sleeve -- Gunjack. While the trademark was filed quite some time ago, now we have a solid gameplay trailer to look at and judge. It will apparently be an arcade shooter for the Samsung Gear VR platform, and ...

PLEX for Good: EVE Online players can donate to the Nepal earthquake relief fund, too

Doing good sometimes has a domino effect. That's the case with contributions to the Nepal earthquake fund. First, the Far Cry devs started matching donations. Then, Bungie sold t-shirts to help the cause. Now, CCP's hyper-warping its s...

The developers at CCP face a unique challenge with EVE Online that other studios don't necessarily face. Its players expect an incredibly deep and detailed experience, which means that evolving the game is particularly d...   read

EVE: Valkyrie preview
It was almost a year ago (ten months, more accurately) when I sat down with EVE: Valkyrie's developers, and they told me "We're ready to ship when Oculus is ready to ship." At the time, Valkyrie was considered a flagship...   read

CCP does VR A-OK
It’s no secret that virtual reality is quickly making its mark on the videogame industry. If that weren't evident before, GDC 2015 kicked the door wide open. That's why, with numerous developers turning their attention ...   read

EVE Online has plans for exclusive ship skins, here are 11 new ones

The EVE Online keynote at Fanfest 2015 just wrapped up, and one of the major themes was that CCP wants to put more power in the hands of the players. A popular way of accomplishing this is by finally releasing unique ship skins so that...

New EVE: Valkyrie trailer starts with a routine escort mission

EVE Valkyrie is super neat. It looks like a cool dogfighting-in-space game when you watch a trailer, but actually being in the cockpit with the Oculus Rift? It's a trip and used to great effect. Looking down at your fake che...   read

CCP permanently bans players that vandalized monument in Iceland

Can you EVEn handle footage of EVE Valkyrie on Unreal 4?

As someone with a lot of experience in the realm of Sentai, let me say that first impressions dont always hold, and those awful suits that look like they belong more in a bike race might look great in motion! Otherwise, theres always your imagination!
