    I tried it out for a bit. I am a member of the somethingawful.com forums so I of course hooked up with the guys from goonswarm.

    BOY what a frikkin learning curve though, I managed to float along for about a month before I lost interest. I may give it another shot here in the future.

    I did have some fun though, goonswarm is pretty badass and I was never really bored as we sat and watched gates, bullshitting in 0.0 space. 0.0 space rocks.
    ...Then I ducked my head and the lights went out, and two guns blazed in the dark;
    And a woman screamed, and the lights went up, and two men lay stiff and stark...

    It's a beautifully done game. My older son plays it. Once he showed me a situation where everyone had ganged up on something/someone. He said, "This never happens," and the moderators or whoever had to block more people from coming in, close the gate, whatever you call it. I think it was that one where he got too close and got killed. But didn't lose too much, he said. He's found ways of making money that apparently no one has thought of -- if you find a niche it works well.

    I've enjoyed watching my kids play WOW, too. I've been so tempted to become a Dwarf Priest. :-) Or something Hordish. But oh the time it takes . . . I'll probably always remain a gamer wannabe.

    Once I get a better computer, I definitely want to get this.

    To be able to have your character learn skills and gain certificates while you are offline working or doing some other activity is a brilliant concept.
    I've been wanting to play an MMO for quite some time, but since I primarily game on consoles (currently just XBOX 360), I never had any interest in MMOs because I didn't want to take away from my time playing them cause you have to spend so much time even just on leveling. I would much rather get into the other aspects of a game instead of having to focus so much on menial stuff. Plus, in other MMOs, you pretty much have to set a scheduled time to do group stuff because you can't get very far going solo, and that was another thing that really turned me off to them.

    But -- player-controlled and contested realms? As a social experiment, it's fascinating in its own, awful, Hobbesian way.

    Before my exit, though, I found this video of a corporation showing off a Titan. House, MD excepted, I've never seen a snugger fit for Teardrop.
    This game sounds amazing! I wonder if it has a very complex tech-tree and leveling system! I hope so because I've been wanting to play an extremely mental and satisfying game for a while now. Everything I've read about EVE Online looks magnificent.

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...
