Yeah, I think I'll try the extended trial when I get back to my pc this weekend. I'm really intrigued by the economy and I want to try my hand at it if I can just get a handle on the game first. I remember I tried EVE for a few hours perhaps a year or two ago and I was just overwhelmed and shut it down, never to open it again. Maybe I'll make it further this time. Looking forward to chatting with some duders once I get in the game. I'll update with my name once I make a character.
All of these EVE stories fascinate me, but I'm just too intimidated by the game to take the leap. It'd be far from my first MMO, but EVE truly is its own animal. Can you just mess with trading/finances and play the game that way? The most fun I've ever had in an MMO was when I turned into a trading tycoon of sorts in WoW and was manipulating markets and being quite the opportunist. Good times.
@ajamafalous: I was saying that artistic rendition wouldn't have made any sense if they had kept it that way for the reasons I outlined. Thankfully they didn't. New one looks much better, and thankfully they also fixed the ulti as well.
I had every issue of OXM up until a year ago when I threw them all out. I had just as many issues of EGM and PC Gamer because I was getting all three simultaneously. Let me tell you, it does not dawn on you how many magazines you have until you try to lift the bin you are storing them in. That thing was heavy. I actually had to drag it out to my trash can.
It felt good though. Magazines just don't have the relevance they once used to.
@ajamafalous: That wouldn't have made any sense. I mean, he even appears right next to ES on the hero selection and looks nothing like him, despite the fact that both are tauren. That straight up looks like one of those "has science gone too far" banners you see on weird websites.
