EVE Online News – I Was in Space

For two beautiful minutes I was a fighter pilot in space. Even though we were in a wide open hall with crepes being made not far away every one of my senses told me I was in space flying a fighter of some sort. There were enemies out there somewhere, two people who were in reality sitting just across from me were coming after me. But in the vastness of space did it really matter? With only 2 minutes did I want to spend my time in space hunting down the enemy or did I want to fly through debris and enjoy all the colors of space? I was playing EVE: Valkyrie. I was in space.

EVE Online News – A Tale of Internet Spaceships to Premier on July 11th

Attendees at the EVE Online 2013 Fanfest were stars of an upcoming feature-length film called "A Talke of Internet Spaceships". According to information released today, the movie will premier in a live event in Sweden and will simultaneously be released worldwide for free via video hosting sites.

The documentary, filmed during a fan convention in Reykjavik in April 2013, aims to give an in-depth look at what makes EVE Online special and why people devote so much of their lives to it. This candid exploration of a video game community investigates the sometimes complicated relationship between EVE’s dedicated player base and the game’s developers, CCP Games. It also documents one of the most tumultuous times in the game’s lifespan – the release of the Incarna expansion – which turned out to be one of the most important moments in the history of online roleplaying games.
