Stunning EVE machinima depicts struggle between New Eden's factions
The sci-fi setting of EVE Online provides a great amount of material for players interested in creating machinima. But it's not everyday that a short film as good as Clear Skies or Havoc comes along. Then again, it's also not every day that something created by a player draws accolades from the game's creators -- but that's exactly the case with the work of EVE player Kyoko Sakoda, in "War Has Come" -- which beautifully captures the game, set to a cover of Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower."
Sakoda writes, "This is one of my first thematic works.

I'm always looking to improve my storytelling, direction, and editing and compositing skills."
