“So soon(tm) we will have Eve Online, Valkyrie, Gunjack and the as yet untitled FPS to replace DUST514/Project Legion. Are we missing anything else? Are then any other games CCP should be looking into? Colony building simulators in the style of Sim City or Rimworld. Should it be on a grander scale link Civilisation or Stronghold Kingdoms. How about RTS games ala Command and Conquer. Survival games such as Rust? Planet based combat like World of Tanks? Would you like to see other game types expanding the Eve Universe or should CCP stick to what it knows?”
It has been a while since I did a Blog Banter but this one sang to me. A side from Eve and a few other casual MMO’s like ESO and The Division most of my gaming is done on Android devices. This is the hole I would like to see filled by CCP and far more connected than they already have.
Valkyrie, Gunjack, the ‘shooter’, all of these use the IP but the connection to Eve is only that of naming and owners. Dammit I want to see play that benefits me across platforms. What I do in A has an effect on B. If I defend a mining platform in Gunjack I should see a bonus of some sort in eve mining or reprocessing. If I fly well in Valkyrie I would like to to show on fighter or drone control in Eve. Better would be if I could have freinds that also benefit me. I make a clan/corp/guild in one game and the benefits funnel to the connected corp in another.
Spread, connectivity, consequences that span gaming systems. I play on a bus and it pays off when I get back to my desktop. I convince my wife that the android game is fun and step 5) profit. Connectivity is not a new idea for me. I wanted snapshots taken of huge battles and then used as backdrops in Valkyrie so you could say ‘see that there? That was me. That ship over there tanking it strong? PGL’ Fly through the history of Eve in other games. For DUST 514 battlegrounds I thought it would be cool to have the sites not repetitive but laid out according to actual PI setups on that planet. Yeah, I dream a lot. But this would mean the battles would be different and no memorization of the camping spots.
Till then? Clash Royale and the like . . . but man I want me some Eve on my phone and tablet.
fly it like you won it
Oh and others who have had something to say one this include
There may be more that I missed but that is a start
