The admin of Roleplaygateway roped me in to trying Eve Online. I have but one thing to say...

Why was I not told of its awesomeness sooner?.

Enjoy your farm sir.

Eve online seems to be a good game, but to be able to compete you would have had to started playing back when it first launched... That is why I never tried it.

I beat Giygas, so I moved on to Touhou 6: Embodiment of Scarlet Devil. Oh, and I beat Remilia.
Easy-mode/using continues doesn't count.  :3

Considering the game has no levels nor experience points I am not what you mean. I like it because its an MMO in the actual sense of the word and not what you normally would associate with the genre.

Costs, skill training times (online and off, one character per account training at any one time), the PvP ethics with hardline business/piracy/etc and humongous pre-established uber-rich over-equipped groups, huge griefing potential as the side-effect of huge freedom of interaction. Its likely that you can only stay solo/smalltime for so long, then you're just a sitting meal for organised piracy unless you let yourself get sucked into a larger group, and ultimately sacrifice some of your freedom to some virtual company rules. It might be quite a dynamic MMO given the group interactions and classless system, but it is still an MMO all the same.

Eve changed the probing system a while back and now I cruise the systems looking for hidden objects. I've been driving through a lot of wormholes just for fun.

I made the mistake when I started of jumping in on a large corp/alliance operation and found myself bored with a 'second job'. Now I just do what I want. Combat, sure. Explore, sure. Mine or haul cargo, sure.

The problem with Eve is that it has an insane learning curve, a ruthless PVP environment, and you always feel like you're going to die. But once you get over that, its actually a fun game and if you can get in to a good corp you can find a lot of fun people to hang out with.

If you are new to the game, play the tutorial missions! They will give you a taste of what is going on in the game. Once you have finished them, take your ship and set a course for out in the middle of 0.0 space (like system 373z-7). Yes, you will probably die. Get yourself killed right off the bat to know how it works and what it feels like. If you get podded, big deal, you're new and don't have any implants (plus it is worth hearing the computer scold you for dying). You'll get a new starter ship and be right back at the base you started at. Now go play the game normally.

I know people that go and die repeatedly right off the bat just to see how far the can go. Sometimes people will start a conversation with, offer help, etc... not everybody in the game is a back stabbing ganker.(maybe 30%)

Just polished off The Wonderful End of the World. Took a while to unlock the last level but it was well worth it. Very fun game!

Also BioShock 2.

Trying to get Empire: Total War displaying boats properly.

Actually I've stopped trying, and given up.  :'(

I know that. But what is this Easy Mode of which you speak? There is only normal, hard, insane, and "die on the first enemy in Stage 1 within 3 seconds."
I played normal mode.
Who are you again and why in the world would you expect anything resembling rationality or civility in youtube comments?

Couldn't come up with something better then that dnd. Its not even worth adding another post to this thread. :P
Oh and before I forget. I tried playing the Alien v.s. Predator demo and I found out that I lag so bad that I can't even turn around with out the game freezing.
