Featured Content: EVE Chronicles

The folks over at CCP have started a series of stories chronicling the leaders of each of the four faction heads that made their appearance with the launch of the Empyrean Age expansion. This week we ran the second in the series, looking at Souro Foiritan, president of the Gallente Federation.

The Garden was a man-made construct through and through, several acres of carefully tended flora and woodland encased in a massive transparent dome. Souro Foiritan, president of the Gallente Federation, had it constructed long ago as a meeting place between dignitaries of the various empire factions.

In this it served its function admirably, for a twofold reason. First, a peaceful garden was much more conducive to a genial atmosphere and agreeable spirits than a meeting room ever could be. A visiting diplomat, weighted by worries and demands, would feel so much more calm sitting by a babbling brook or a tree in budding bloom than he ever could on the top floor of a high-rise, no matter how good its view. And second, it was so well secured with anti-eavesdropping technology that visitors could discuss the darkest topics of their hearts' desires without so much as a glance over their shoulders.

With a new official website revamp recently under their belts, the folks at NetDevil come away with our Game of the Week for their upcoming space-based MMORPG Jumpgate Evolution.

JGE is the follow-up to the company's earlier released Jumpgate, an MMORPG that is well known for its interesting combat and controls (many players used a joystick for the game, a feature that will be supported in the new version). As this new game comes closer and closer to launch, MMORPG.com will continue to monitor its progress.

Learn more about Jumpgate Evolution, here, or check out our game list here.
