    Smile Why does PC Gamer Not Review every EVE Online Expansion?

    Every time a new Expansion for WoW comes out so does a new review listing whats changed and what to expect, So why no Love for EVE Online?

    Yes it's not as BIg and Popular as WoW, But it has one of the most Loyal and Respectful fanbases in the world.

    So please PC Gamer I beg of you......Review the Expansions of EVE online and give us your opinions on them.

    Thanks!

    Most MMOs don't get their expansions reviewed. WoW is the market leader so sells magazines.

    Also a eve expansion is just a content patch, its not something you have to go out and buy, so to the existing player base it makes no difference as you get it anyway, as for new players reviewing the changes in a content patch wouldn't help them.

    It would be like reviewing every content patch in wow.

    I think it's because they're free.
    Although in PCG UK there's often a segment in the 'Extra Life' section that pretty extensively covers the expansions and the author's general impressions. They do the same for other big patches in other MMOs, like Aion, WoW, Guild Wars etc.

    Simply not as extensive as WoW expansions. I think they reviewed the early ones, but often the game changes very little.

    I mean, how would you review Crucible?

    As far as I am aware, eve is the only MMORPG that rewards you for not playing.
    I tried it, and was lost as a subscriber before I got through the tutorial when I flew through an asteroid with no repurcussion.

    EVE has one of the most mature communities I've seen.

    they were certainly more welcoming to this newb than the guys at League of Losers, which is a shame because yahtzee pretty much summed up EVE's appeal for me and I kinda wanna get into Dota if not for the faqs that play it
