    Game Perspective video series

    Hey peoples,

    So I decided to record a quick video of some Eve Online gameplay, demonstrating how various things in the game work. These are geared for people who haven't played the game but are curious to see how this particular MMO's game mechanics might solve many of the design issues being discussed in this class. I try to focus on just the game mechanics of that particular game, and not go too deep into how they could be applied to the MMO. I'll leave that for an essay sized forum post

    Its the first of several I have planned, I'll have another one up in the next day or so, and I probably won't be limiting these to just discussion of Eve Online, I already have plans for Magicka and Mass Effect. Oh and try to watch the EO vids in HD, at lower resolutions the text becomes unreadable

    Very cool. I think a lot of people should introduce their ideas initially using this method. It bypasses any interruptions and allows the purest form of your thoughts to flow. If you don't do a good job explaining, then that's your fault (you always have the option of re-recording it), also because you set up a thread it allows us to ask questions and build upon your ideas.

    On to the actual video.

    While i dont like the aesthetic of that market system, i love the way it operates. The bidding process, the local transaction history and graph to show how much the item has previously sold for is really good.

    One part in particular that i like is the local/global effect of selling/buying items in a star system. Being able to naturally charge for more or demand less because of your location is very cool. It's just like London

    It might be a little bit too open with having all transactions history available, maybe having to purchase a sort of "trade" status that gives you access to all data could be cool . It means people cant exploit or be caught exploiting the economy. Which could be fun. But i could be talking out of my ....... because this side of the MMO is stuff i have very little experience with so i would like to hear others talk about this who have a lot more insight.

    I just wanted to post to let you/everyone else know this is a very cool way to put your ideas across and from my perspective you did an awesome job.

    You did a great job 3dspider. This is something I have been referring to alot in my mind while listening to the guys on video talk about market and other stuff.

    Also I love that now we have a non-WoW reference on the board :P

    I look forward to seeing more stuff from you.

    Well done 3dspider, I was actually looking for an overview video of the market system on EVE a while back and couldn't find anything as well put together.

    3dspider: A quick update... I just wanted you to know that I picked up Eve late last night/this morning after watching your video. I plan to put a little time in with it each night before I go to bed. So hurry with that next video.

    Cheers!

    Good to see other EvE pilots here on the forum, im currently based in tribute right beside Venal, there is a major war going on now, figthing over Tribute + 5000 pilots on each side fighting to controle this area of space. Russians and Pandemic leagion + friends against Northern Coalition and theyr allies. If you give EvE a good try you will love the pvp jason, its awsom but takes a while to get in too the deep stuff of it. The market game in eve is great and you did a good demo of it 3dspider
