Dust 154 – Eve online’s free to play FPS

Spaceship MMO Eve online has recently released a free to play online fps game called Dust 154 for the playstation, which will, interestingly, work in tandem with the EVE online MMO world, in this screenshot for example, you can see a Dust player on the ground requesting an orbital bombardment on an enemy position from a EVE online player in orbit. Interesting!

Eve online player protest

Footage shows a massive player protest sparked by leaked internal emails discussing the creation of new micro transaction charges that would affect gameplay, players were incensed at the tone of the emails that described them as the “golden goose”. Hundreds of players converged on the central hubs of Jita and other primary locations in gamespace and blasted the permanent structure with their most powerful weaponry. Despite the stations being invulnerable to this kind of attack, the high traffic on the nodes forced server nodes to be shut down and basically slowed the game economy to a crawl.

Superstruct: Join a Mass Experiment in Futurist Speculation with the Game “Superstruct”

Superstruct: Join a Mass Experiment in Futurist Speculation with the Game “Superstruct”


The year is 2019, and a report has just come out proving that the Earth’s population is likely to suffer catastrophic collapse by the 2040s. Energy costs are rising, a new pandemic called ReDS is devastating the globe, homelessness has reached epic proportions, and the internet has become a miasma of spam that prevents everyone from communicating. Now it’s up to you and a few thousand other futurists to save the planet by quickly inventing new social structures that can stop all our civilizational “superthreats” before it’s too late. This is just a broad outline of the rewardingly complex plot of a new MMO called Superstruct that the Institute for the Future launched last week.

It doesn’t sound like the kind of game with a lot of pretty graphics, but for a change of pace it certainly looks interesting.

More of a thinking man’s MMORPG than a poopsocker’s one.

The 36 character one man army of World of Warcraft.

Serious dedication from gamer Prepared who plays 36 world of warcraft accounts at the same time

This man certainly is dedicated to his “craft”, with a multi machine setup, dozens of accounts (36 to date) he’s a one man raid waiting to happen (And in fact this seems to be his goal) who spends thousands of dollars a year on his “habit”.

Well, as long as he’s having fun…
