On the EVE of the 2005 holiday season...
We take a look at the surprise upstart EVE Online. Not familiar? Neither was I until this two year old space-based tactical MMO (with enough of a hyper-capitalistic flavor to make Donald Trump wet his pants!) started making headlines again.
Humans, curious buggers that we are, began colonizing the uncharted environs on the other side of a recently discovered wormhole called "Eve." Five races (4 of which are playable) evolved into rival nations of varying strength, bound together by a fragile peace. When "Eve" catastrophically exploded, bringing widespread ruin to the fledgling "New Eden" settlements, the colonists began a scramble to consolidate power into organizations and corporate entities. Their restless search of resources to ensure their continued survival and prosperity brought the settlers ever closer to greater threats, the greatest of which just might be... themselves (cue the dramatic music)!!
