Clear Skies was a 45 minute machinima movie created using EVE Online and Half-Life 2 to tell the story of a snarky, down-on-their luck courier crew swept up into the politics of the EVE universe.
I say "was" because now it's a series of movies with the release of Clear Skies 2.
Even if you don't play EVE Online, it's a fun space opera story in the style of Firefly, which uses both graphic engines to amazing use. If you haven't seen machinima before, this is a good place to start (then followed by Red vs. Blue).
And now, back to work and hermiting.
