I think I only truly became An Adult right around the time I first heard of EVE Online
. Growing up, you see, the concept of space conjured notions of adventure, heroism, and utopia. The possibilities, mynaive peanut brain figured, were endless. But time has a way of imparting essential kernels of wisdom upon even the most head-in-the-stars of youths ' mainly, that people arecomplete jerks
to each other. And so it is with EVE Online. Catapulted into the endless reaches of space, human existence isā?¦ pretty much the same. Corporate shenanigans, frequent backstabbery, and ' if a new trailer's anything to go on ' lots of dubstep continue unabated. Only difference is, there are super nifty space ships, which make being a bounty hunter a viable career path ' even for people not named 'Dog.' And so we arrive at the new Retribution expansion, the bounty-hunting-est one yet. It's out now, which means you're probably already dead.
