The Firing Line: Star Citizen shouldn't be EVE with joysticks

I've been spending a lot of time on Star Citizen's forums of late.

Behind the Curtain: The spirit of competition

I was going to write a little about the differences between making better games, and making games better. The more I thought about it though, the more I realised that a topic like that doesn't really have a place here at Behind the Curtain. You can take that statement either to mean that an...

What draws players to EVE while keeping others away?

EVE Online is the type of game that doesn't have the broad appeal of fantasy that titles like World of Warcraft. Certainly, it attracts a number of players who are looking for an edgier game experience where actions have consequences. For some, the consequences can be steep, causing those gamers to...
