EVE Online

I started a 14 day trial of this spectacular game this weekend.  It is a difficult learning curve at first, but once I got the hang of the mechanics it was a fantastic voyage into deep space!  I think it’s something I am going to keep around for awhile.

For those who don’t know, it is a game where you are a pilot of a spacecraft, and as you proceed through space missions (which usually entail mining, salvaging, or combat), you gain SK’s (which is the game’s money), where in turn you can buy upgrades for your spacecraft, and mine more (or kill more).

Unlike other games however, this one continues to improve your character even when you’re offline drinking beer!  I like this because it means I don’t have to kill thousands of skeletons in order to advance my skills.  Learning is a lifelong process, after all, and EVE understands and gets it like no other MMO I’ve played.

Try for yourself!  You can get a 14-day free trial here:  https://secure.eve-online.com/ft/FreeTrialSignup.aspx?aid=104104

  1. You can also get a 21 day trial from a current player. If you end up signing up, they get a month free. If not, nothing wasted.
