I want something new- Eve?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN,

Lately, i have been very unmotivated to play any video games. I pre-ordered the Deluxe edition of GW2 ($80 mad.gif ) and hate the game. Ive played so much BF3 that im sick of it, and every other FPS i play feels lacking.

What i need, is a complete refresh from my usual style of game, which leads me to my next question:

I am looking for a futuristic, space MMORPG. The only one that i know of is Eve. If anyone here plays Eve, please, tell me your opinions on the game, i will be doing research as you type your reply to this thread. Also, im open to suggestions for other games as well that meet my criteria. Ive tried SWTOR and like it, but i dont really want to play it, not a big Star Wars guy. Other than that, im open to ideas!

Eric

PS- Id prefer NO monthly contract, or a very reasonable one. If the game requires a 15$+ monthly contract, i probably wont consider it.

I recommend getting into a career you like, Neighbor.

It can be pretty hard to play continue sitting in front of a Computer screen all day, even if to play games after watching tickers for so long.

I have a small number of old gaming buddies who don't game anymore, because they started trading while playing.

Considering EVE requires 15+ a month contract you will probably be put off, according to your post. besides that though they do offer a 14 day free trial.

I started eve in August of 2008. It was the most wonderous experience I'd ever had, and ended up playing it exclusively for the next 3 years. I'd say at least give it a solid go at the 14 day free trial.

Hello Floridian! Im a student, so i usually game to relieve stress and fill up weekends. Its not so much that i dont want to game anymore, its just more that im bored of the games i have, and want to try a whole new genre.

I think i will give it a whirl smile.gif Im going to purchase the 90 days for 30$ (so like 10$ a month) to start out with, to give me plenty of time to decide if i like it enough.

Hehehehe, that was quick




$10 p/month isnt too bad redface.gif

Now to start 18GBs of downloading.......... This will be shoved onto my SSD which only has 42GB of space. Should i clear out more space for it, or is it fine?
