Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go back to your old massively multiplayer online game and start over? Would you enjoy the experience? Or would you find all of the new bells and whistles overwhelming? Ten Ton Hammer's Phil Comeau has done just that with his MMOG love, EVE Online, by taking advantage of the "Power of Two" offer from CCP.

Character creation has been cleaned up greatly since I last ran though the process. The various attribute and skill levels that your character begins play with aren't as hidden as it was with the old system, and a progress bar along the top of the screen shows you how far along you are in the character creation process.
