Dust 514 – Eve Online for Consoles

August 18, 2009

Dust 514

CCP have announced today a new Eve Online related project; Dust 514. The information we have so far is that it will be primarily a console release, includes FPS, RTS and MMO mechanics and interacts directly with the PC spearhead – Eve Online.

The Kotaku news post attached the following images:

The interesting part is the direct interaction with Eve Online, maybe this has something to do with the Walking in Stations ongoing development? The above pictures sure could point to that. Read the GamesIndustry.biz article for more, all will be revealed officially at CCPs fan-fest in October.

The adventures of Ninja in EVE Online – Part 2

May 22, 2009

Hey look its another star.

Captain’s Log – Star date March 17th  2009:

So the good ship Thoughtshake’s continuing mission to pass judgment upon the massively multiplayer online role playing game that is Eve Online is staggering on in a rather drunken meander. Ships have been plundered, asteroids mined and I, the brave captain Galactic Jim, have completed many missions for my corporate overlords.

In my travels I had completed various missions that, I assume, were intended to introduce me to the various features Eve has to offer. After completing three mission ‘arcs’ I decided that mining and construction were not for me. Mining in Eve is tedious, two clicks and I would have a cargo of rock ready to be reprocessed and sold for a fairly meagre sum of cash.

The adventures of Ninja in EVE Online – Part 1

Hi, I’m Ninja and I should have written something for this blog a long, long time ago but I was busy being far too lazy. However, after a week of bad weather being confined to my laptop, I was soon bored enough to try anything (and obviously Steam was the first place I went). In the demos section, I found EVE Online offering a 21 day trial, and what with the new star trek film out and nothing to loose, I thought ‘What the hell, it couldn’t hurt to try something new. Here goes.’

Captain’s Log – Star date 10th March  2009:

EVE – the massively multiplayer final frontier. These are the voyages of the blog ship Thoughtshake on her 21 day mission to explore its features, seek out new ways to enjoy my Internet connection and find out if its worth a monthly fee, to boldly go where no blog (that I’ve read) has gone before. This, my first post on The Thoughtshake, looks at the massively multiplayer behemoth that is CCP’s EVE Online and my experiences as a first time star pilot. Enjoy.
