Yup... its been ported.... i might join now...
Will anybody who plays this game please comment? I'm interested, but it sounds pretty cutthroat...
Just a reminder that it's Intel-only:
I'd love to try this out at some point, when I'm actually able to buy an Intel-based Mac.
Yay, that means we can turn this thread into yet another "we want new mac pros" complaint thread!
I play EVE... And it is truly awesome.
It is not as "cutthroat" as it used to be in the years gone by (for example, you no longer are at risk of losing all your skills if you do get killed - you only lose at most a few weeks). However, losses do hit you harder than losses in other games (such as WoW).
It is also worth noting that things like theft and scams (within limits) are permitted in EVE. Some people fume at this when they end up on the wrong end... Personally, I enjoy this "rogue" aspect of the game.
The game is also very immersive, and has wonderful graphics.
As for negatives... One of the main is rampant ISK RMT. Population of Chinese farmers has increased immensely over the past year, and they are becoming really annoying (especially for some in-game professions, like trade). There is not much inflation just yet, but there are certainly plenty of people with farmed and purchased ISK in their wallets. CCP is trying to handle the problem, but it is understandably hard.
Even with all the negatives, EVE is a great game. It is also one of the very few MMO games you can play for free (you can pay for your game time with ISK - you need a lot of ISK, of course, but I have not paid a cent for playing EVE during the last year).
I've been playing the game for almost a year. I only get to play it when I'm at home or at a friend's place since I don't have an Intel Mac at school. I have my friend train skills for me in the meantime. Too bad that it still can't run on PPC Macs. I guess I'm stuck with playing it once a month.
How do you pay the subscription with ISK? If you mean by ebaying or selling your ISK online, how is that any better than farming?
No, you can buy game time with ISK through CCP legally.
How many isk? How/where?
Game time cards can be purchased for about 120Mil ISK for a month of game time.
Ouch. Looked this up last night........ wow. Looks like I'll have to pay.
