Travelling to Iceland to join hundreds of other internet spaceship enthusiasts at Fanfest is a bewildering enough experience for those of us who know our Gallente from our Minmatar and our Goons from our carebears, but to those less well-informed it becomes a real…ahem.. odyssey.
This year, as well as providing exclusive coverage for Gameskinny, being a genuine EVE Online player working amongst the wider press found me falling into the unofficial role of player-press liaison. As a result, I had the privilege of working alongside some seasoned professionals, including Adam Rosser, a radio journalist for BBC Radio 5.
Last night’s BBC radio programming included Adam’s coverage of his Fanfest experience. This 20 minute recording provides a broad overview for general public consumption and some interesting insights from CCP’s Creative Director Torfi Frans Ólafsson and CEO Hilmar Veigar Pétursson.
Torfi’s segment makes for particularly amusing listening. Tsk tsk.
