How awesome is Retribution, EVE Online's latest free expansion? "Freaking awesome," says Massively's EVE columnist Brendan Drain.

Gushing aside, Retribution is a massive balancing update that implements a revamped bounty and criminal flagging system along with tweaks to both modules and the notoriously overcomplicated UI. Massively celebrated launch day with a roundup of our best Retribution content and a peek at the official trailer, and we capped it off by putting a substantial bounty on a few of our commenters.
