Eve and Beyond

Hot on the heels of the announcement that Earth and Beyond will be closing up shop,EVE Online has begun a push to market itself to ex-E&B players. Along with the obligatory free trial, it looks like E&B’ers get an EVE volunteer to help them through the learning curve at the beginning of the game. That’s an interesting idea to say the least. A live tutor. Of course, your experience will vary depending on how good the tutor is. I may check this one out. I was in the beta at the very end and while very nice to look at, I wasn’t to impressed, but I didn’t play much more than an hour or two. Maybe they’ve updated the game.

Has nothing interesting to say so in the interest of time, will get on with not saying it.

  1. While trying to find out what Eve-online is, I surfed over to their FAQ only to have my intelligence insulted.

    With answers for ever-useful questions like “What does persistent world mean?” and “What does massively multiplayer mean?” I think they missed a couple of more obvious FAQs: how about “what does online mean?”, “what does game mean?”, what does ‘a’ mean?”

    After tackling those toughies, maybe they’ll be ready to answer “Why did E&B fail? and how do we make it so EVE-ONLINE won’t flop too?”

    If Eve was that chick that called me to beg me to come back to play E&B, what are eve-voluteers? Will they be paying for my online game (whatever that is) subscription, i hope the updatey the FAQ soon with my questions…
