Did anyone play/ join the online game 'EVE' ?

I didn't, it looked far too complicated and some of those playing it appeared to be anal geeks who took it all far too seriously. It made the national news I remember when much of the eve community, rumoured to have over half a million subscribers world wide, decided to have an all out war to the death.

Then I got into Football Manager and my home life was nearly wrecked, it ate up huge swathes of my time and only an ultimatum from the other half and a great deal of self denial saved me from myself. I kicked the habit but am still curious as to what the newer versions were/are like. I won't go near them now.


I used to play Football Manager years ago. Such an addictive game you could play days on end! I haven’t looked at it for a while though...

I play No Mans Sky. I love it. It’s so big and vast. I’ve never actually seen another player. The planets are beautiful too. All procedurally generates and I think there’s something ridiculous like 20 quintrillion of them. Beautiful game.

Yes, I've heard of No Man's Sky. I very much like the idea of it: worlds generated by computer so that even the makers of it don't know what to expect, though I also heard it had turned out to be a bit disappointing, for various reasons – maybe people were expecting too much, I don't know. I think I'll have to give it a try though just to see for myself.


I think it was just a bit... I dunno, aimless? They’ve added more things since I last played, like building bases and shit. I like it. I just like exploring and mining to explore more though. It was a nice (although somewhat difficult) to play a game like that where I’m not tethered to a base, as such.

I’ve discovered Ark: Survival Evolved is on mobiles. My life is over.

I liked evony free forever. The beat about it was chat and diplomatic function. Space invaders I could lose at. But for online one on one strategy command and conqure generals! FPS battle field 4, aside from all the glitches. Whouch where amusing in hindsight was an excelent game. And obviously assasins creed. Though the games change little in objectives. Though the best campaigns where from the total war series. A bit disapointed that they never advanced on FPS, and strategy.

Ultimate has to be crash bandicoot.

Eve is still going. I play it very badly as a casual toe dipper.

Eve is more of a community than a game, things move on and change.
