EVE Fanfest 2013 is sold out

EVE Fanfest 2013 is sold out. I went last year so I understand why -- this is one of the coolest events in gaming (pun intended). This year 50 percent more tickets were sold than last year, meaning that 1,400 attendees will b...

Still flying: Why I play EVE Online

EVE Online is one of those games that people on gaming sites are always talking about, but comparatively few people play it. This crazy sandbox is filled with tales of pirates, thieves, griefing, and war. It has an insan...

One pilot's mistake leads to massive battle in EVE Online
by Joshua Derocher

Every once in a while I have people who don't play EVE Online ask me about something major that happened in the game. This past weekend, I have had a lot people asking me about the Battle of Asakai, in which one pilot's simple mistake led to over 3,000 players being called into one system to fight.

EVE's wild frontier allows players to do anything they want. And in the Battle of Asakai, they wanted to blow lots of things up.

An Eden for the rest of us: CCP shines light on Dust 514

When I think of large-scale, methodical PC MMORPGs the last thing that comes to my mind is being able to link up to a console-based first-person shooter. Clearly, the hard working folks at CCP Games thought otherwise. Dust 5...

New EVE video shows off prettier Amarr ships

As part of the upcoming Inferno expansion for EVE Online, Amarr ships are getting a little bit of love. The old shader models and textures are being redone to make them more visually appealing. Developer CCP wants to eventually enhance all of the graphics in the game. Considering that EVE is almost nine years old, it's awesome that CCP is still updating it so much.

Preview: First hands-on with CCP's DUST 514 photo
Preview: First hands-on with CCP's DUST 514
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

DUST 514 is the next big thing from CCP as it’s a first in our industry. Your actions in the free-to-play first-person shooter on the PlayStation 3 will have a direct effect on a totally different game on a separate platform. That game of course being EVE Online, the PC MMORPG that has more subscribers than the population of Iceland, home of CCP. 

Iceland is also home to the annual EVE Online Fanfest. Like BlizzCon in the States, Fanfest is the go-to place to learn more about EVE, meet fellow players, and it's where many people got first ever hands-on with DUST 514. I played with CCP's ambitious new project and feel it has a potential to set a new precedence for console gaming.
