Tales from EVE Fanfest

Brendan Caldwell has an interesting write up over at RPS about the EVE fanfest, and the journey for the richest man in EVE. Saying much more about it would ruin the story, so just go read it.

EVE remains continuously fascinating to me, and I wish that game developers would look more in EVE’s direction for their online play than, say, SimCity. There’s a difference between forced economic co-operation, and voluntary, and you can imagine which of the two is far more interesting. I imagine EVE is actually less frustrating, because the ability for retribution against trolls actually exists in this game, with significant real world losses at stake.
