I missed this article when it first came out a month ago, but today I saw it linked from a Gamespot story I was reading about Star Citizen. (The second article is an announcement that the lead producer for Diablo III has joined Cloud Imperium as Star Citizen’s executive producer.)
There are some sacred cows of EVE that should be challenged as well. Maybe not abolished, but looked at, and the question fairly asked if they support the continued growth of the game, and whether they are still a fit, assuming they ever truly worked at all.
Instead of CCP all but writing EVE off as a bro game that’s too complex for our little girl-brains — umm, yeah, I must have hallucinated going to engineering school — why not take a harder look at what about EVE says “Stay the fuck out” to many women?
In other news, I just subscribed to Star Citizen. After I read Mabrick’s post yesterday, I finally took the plunge. He should get a commission. 😉 Like I’ve said before, I’ll happily subscribe to both EVE and Star Citizen. It’s way too early to predict whether one will become more of a favorite than the other.
