Things that make you go, “Hrmmm?”
John Smedley. In a Drake. In EVE Online.
I mean, sure, it isn’t like he said he had a titan or anything. And Drakes are pretty common. But you still don’t get one in a day. You have to play the game a bit.
It is one of those things… I know he says he loves online games. But he runs the online game division for Sony, so he would be foolish to say anything different.
And I know he says he loves SOE’s games… especially PlanetSide. But again, that is one of his products, he would be a fool to say otherwise.
But he appears to know what a Drake is and that its main business is shooting missiles. It is not an obvious aspect of the game. I bet Bhagpuss, who has skimmed many a post here about Drakes, couldn’t have made the “Drake = missiles” association. Not because he isn’t paying attention, but because he hasn’t played EVE.
It implies that Smed might really play online games… games besides Free Realms.
That is somewhat reassuring.
In the mean time, it is Inferno launch day… which is where the whole missile thing got started.

I will most definitely be firing some missiles tonight.
