Never have so many synonyms of ‘Holy cow!’ been uttered with such sincerity. On Monday night, members of Subdreddit and pxrxo tested out inter-game orbital bombardment in Eve Online and Dust 514. There’s no footage from the ground as yet, but plenty of evocative Anglo-Saxon linguastics courtesy of the shared comms channel.
Here’s the ammo used, in chronological order:
EMP S - featuring a large blast radius that takes out shields (“Oh God.”)
Tactical Laser S - a small, high damage blast radius (“That was real.”)
Tactical Hybrid S - featuring a large blast radius and a slow strike time (“Holy scheiße.”)
A message in a bomb, from one game to the other. The future’s a wonderful place to live, isn’t it?
