I was reading this week that Chris Stevens, the ambassador who was murdered, was an online gamer who had been playing Eve Online for years. Has anyone here ever played the game? I have established an account (free for the first 2 weeks) and I'm going through the tutorials learn the ropes. It looks like a version of the old BBS game (showing my age here) called Trade Wars on steroids. If anybody is a player please let me know what you think.

I'm just recently started gaming, box the XBox 360 with Kinect, and I'm having a good time but I do have trouble finding the time to play. I have never played the modern online games so any advice that you can give me will be greatly appreciated.
