EVE Fanfest 2009 videos are up

James Egan

We mentioned some highlights from EVE Fanfest 2009 in Reykjavik the other day and Permaband's "HTFU" video went down very well with a lot of our readers. Now CCP Games have made video of some of the Fanfest panels, presentations, or general madness available on their YouTube page as well. Of course there's the main keynote that included DUST 514 info and gameplay footage, but the CCP Panel gave players in attendance the opportunity to ask the EVE Online developers whatever they felt like.

The responses from the devs explain quite a bit about the choices CCP Games has made with both EVE and DUST 514, and there are some hints of what's to come. More than anything, it's interesting to see this kind of direct interaction between the players and the people who create the game. (Obligatory disclaimer: The CCP Panel video is a bit NSFW with the language in parts, but if you're watching something like this on the job... you probably don't care.)

There's also the performance of a play called The Silver Twin that may interest you, written by Hjalti Daníelsson -- the writer behind many of the EVE Chronicles and the upcoming novel The Burning Life. CCP also put up a video presentation about the new in-game browser arriving with the Dominion expansion as well as a keynote focused on the December 1 expansion.

If you're interested in the economic aspects of EVE Online, you'll want to check out the presentation made by Dr. Eyjólfur Guðmundsson, EVE's Lead Economist, which also gives a closer look at the company's war on RMT codenamed "Unholy Rage." Oh, and don't miss their elaborate homage to the beer run that served as Executive Producer Nathan "Oveur" Richardsson's keynote entrance.

Out of curiosity, did any of our readers at Massively attend EVE Fanfest 2009?
