Eve Online: MMORPG

So, I finally took the plunge and signed up for a subscription game.

Eve Online is supposed to be a sci-fi MMORPG in which you can build empires, increase your wealth, and and build corporations.

Let me tell you what it really is…

It’s buggy.

You regularly lose ships because of in-game bugs. Not able to jump through gates, getting shot up in warp, etc.

It’s got poor customer support.

You can request a reimbursement of in-game items if a bug does get you (which is likely). But it will take them an astounding 2 days for a response. That is RIDICULOUS.

Freelancer Released!

As any fan of Privateer (1 or 2) knows, Freelancer was finally released! Not quite the game promised, but it’s still loads of fun. I’ve also setup an Internet accessible server called Zulu System (why do most servers add crazy characters trying to be first on the listings? I sort by ping :).

You can also add it by editing the properties of your shortcut and adding
‘-skulish.com:2302’ without the quotes.

NOTE: Server has since been shutdown!
