I hope some of you have heard or seen the thread that AhmadMetallic made regarding a huge PC Gaming Hub for the community. It’s a big project and me (VisariLoyalist), Renahzor and Althox are leading the way for the EVE community to be a part of this.
The PC Gaming Hub thread can be found here:
Please do check out the other groups that are starting as well.
Also you should know: There's now an IRC channel for the gb community to chit chat and go on impromptu runs of random games, just thought i'd tell you if you'd like to jump on and have a laugh. http://webchat.quakenet.org/ channel is gb_gaming_hub
As I’ve said, it’s a big project, and it will take time, but we will do our best!
EVE is a hard nut to crack; since it’s big, divided, horrible, and all too lovely to ignore. The first thing we will do is try to figure out something that the whole community can be a part of, and we have one event in mind (To be announced!). But then there are things to do beside newbie events, like tournaments, exploring, dare-deviling, PvE, sneaky PvP or what have you.
This is the biggest thing to happen to the community since the start of the Giantbomb corp back in the year (something). We hope we can revitalize the giantbomb community to be involved in a supportive eve venture once again.
So, if you’re an EVE veteran and know what the game is all about and have experience enough to be confident around new people; we’d appreciate if you could stand in line with us and help out.
When can we expect this to kick off?
It will probably take a few weeks or so to sort things out, regarding the events, crash courses, corporation, ships and modules and other important things. We could of course get started much sooner on the preparation if you are already playing EVE and want to get involved join us in the Giantbomb Channel!
I’m new to EVE Online, what is it?
EVE Online is an MMORPG/RTS. You basically take control of a spaceship via your so called “Pod” which uses the pilots, “Capsuleers”, implants to control the ship.
All capsuleers are clones, or are going to become one, which makes you immortal, in one way.
EVE Online is all about money, and fooling around. A few different aspects of the game can include the popular PvE styles of gaming, “mission running” or production.
But there is of course war to have, in favors of your own, or others. Since EVE is a sandbox game, one is never safe from harm, or threat. So, first rule of EVE is always: “Trust no one.”
The opening tutorial missions can provide a lot of helpful skillbooks and tips and tricks so do be sure to do as many of those as you can if you plan on getting into eve. Beyond that eve throws the poor new player into the cold unknown so to speak, but that's where this community comes in.
Eve has a notorious reputation as an unforgiving game that chews up newcomers and veterans alike into a fine pulp. It's true that losing a ship is a somewhat traumatic experience to players young and old but we hope to change that frustrating experience into a fun one where players can learn and explore what eve has to offer. So we hope you will find eve is not such a monstrous place with duders around to fly with!
Where can I find more information regarding EVE?
If you are new, you’re going to find this game hard to get in to, and it will be a bit challenging, but that’s why we veterans are here!
Of course there are tutorials in the game that will explain the very basics of EVE; and don’t skip them!
And there are also huge databases with information for beginners, as well as tips and tricks.
Tutorial videos can easily be searched for on Youtube.

Don’t you fear! We will have a couple of instructional videos up soon enough that will explain what you and other will do on the event taking place.
Here's a list of instructional videos produced by Althox
