Just a few short days to go and Fanfest will be upon us! As the Reykjavik office gets everything prepared for our epic celebrations of all things EVE, the o7 crew are hard at work making sure that all of you at home can get as much of that magical Fanfest-feel as possible on our live stream.
No Fanfest stream is complete without player hosts. This year the EVE TV crew will be joined by:
Drechlas, the Great Bearded fundraising personality who helped host in 2015
Alliance Tournament commentator, Taylor Swift Fanboi, and duet crooning legend, Elise Randolph
J Mcclain, Founder of the military veteran community and support network Best Of Us
Crossing Zebras Editor in Chief and returning Eve TV host, Niden
Tatius Jorgstern (more commonly known as Reload) streamer, YouTuber and all round great guy
On screen you’ll also be entertained and informed by a great host of devs: CCP Antiquarian, CCP Guard, CCP Lebowski, CCP Logibro, CCP Mimic, CCP Shadowcat, and CCP Sledgehammer
And we’ve also grown the team to make this year extra special, so let me introduce the devs that are involved behind the scenes: CCP ArnarV, CCP Falcon, CCP Leeloo, CCP Nova, CCP Tara, and CCP Turtlepower
But of course none of this would be possible without our great audience…YOU!

We’ll be offering you ways to get all the essential and exciting development news and announcements as well as hang out with your space friends in Twitch chat, get to know the people behind the names as we talk to all your favorite dev and player personalities.

While the VR war between the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive is getting most of the hype, the competition in mobile VR is a far bigger deal for most consumers. After all, you only need a phone and a cheap headset for mobile VR, not a powerful gaming rig and lots of spending money. Samsung's Gear VR cemented itself as a pioneer in the market over the past few years, but Google's Daydream View headset came out swinging last year with the inclusion of a small motion sensing remote.
Welcome to mid-week. We've got sub-$1,000 4K TVs in decent sizes, the US government voted on whether ISPs can sell your browser history, and IKEA is getting into the smart lighting game. You might have heard -- the device has been leaked enough -- that Samsung's Galaxy S8 will get its official unveiling later today. We'll be live from the event, which kicks off at 11AM ET in New York.
For many veteran gamers, Planescape: Torment was a definitive role-playing title -- it combined an unusual setting with a deep story, memorable dialogue and gameplay mechanics that still hold up. If you're one of those fans, you won't have long to wait to relieve that experience on modern hardware. Beamdog, Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast have revealed that they're launching Planescape: Torment Enhanced Edition on April 11th. As with most better remastering efforts, this involves more than a little spit and polish to make the game run on newer hardware.
