EVE Online has a certain allure about it, don’t you think? The game has been around for more than eight years now and has grown in magnitude to become one of the deepest MMO games available today. The only catch is it’s not exactly accessible to newcomers or those looking to dabble in a different online experience.
A few months ago I watched a friend playing EVE Online. I was captivated but at the same time put off by the Everest-like incline in the learning curve. I longed to get involved but had to admit that I never would; there was simply too much to absorb. If only CCP Games had some means of making their gloriously detailed universe more accessible to those with shorter attention spans and less time on their hands. Oh wait, they totally do! It’s called Dust 514, a download only MMOFPS heading exclusively to the PlayStation 3.
