You know, for a sandbox, there’s not a lot of sand.

There’s just a whole lot of space.
I’ve had an “on again, off again” relationship with Eve online for quite a few years now. I have a habit of getting somewhat involved with a corporation, logging in every now and again to do stuff with them, then eventually fading out and unsubbing. Though, despite having left Eve more times than any other game (By coming back this time, I’ve beaten my record for Planetside), I’ve also returned the most. There is just something inherit in the way Eve is that makes me love everything the game stands for, “the sandbox” is a term CCP loves to wave around. In the sandbox, 95% of content is emergent from players interacting. To me, it’s just about the coolest thing that a game can be about. Of course, as stated earlier, CCP really has a hardon for “the sandbox,” so much so that they made a commercial for it. (Albiet a rather cool one)

In fact, I absolutely love the way CCP puts out these incredible cinematic videos. I’ve always wanted to get involved in machinima/movie making, and every time I watch one of CCPs trailers I get inspired. Hopefully I’ll be inspired enough to actually follow through with learning how to do these videos one day, but for now this blog is already one I’ve scratched off of my list of things to do.

If you guys ever have any questions or would like me to write about something, please drop me an evemail ingame.

Fly reckless!
