"No they did not... Oh yes they did."
- Arydanika, Voices from the Void
CCP has a long history of publishing humorous videos that poke fun at things that don't go right. One of the most serious incidents was the boot.ini problem that occurred with the release of the Trinity expansion in 2007. The problem was that the boot.ini start up file for the Windows operating system was deleted from some computers keeping the computer from booting up again. This failure earned a short video expressing what many users felt.
Of course, not all failures are as serious as boot.ini. Back in 2008, CCP produced a video that included a poke at itself for the failure to produce a working version of Walking In Stations. That part seems a bit funnier now that we saw what was actually produced 3 years later.
And finally who can forget about Apocrypha. One of the best expansions in Eve Online history, but probably not a name beloved by the marketing department. Expansions are easier to sell if people can pronounce the name. I think the marketing department got their point across in this 2009 video.
That concludes this walk down memory lane. I hope you enjoyed some of these classic CCP videos that don't quite get the notoriety of some of the more recent trailers. I think these types of videos help set CCP apart from the other companies in the MMORPG genre.
