So far, yes. End.
Ok, maybe not. I mean, I don’t mean not as in EQL not, I mean not as in it’s NOT the end...not...OH GOD, I probably just lost you didn’t I? Well, I hope...not, for the few that remain I shall bless you with wordsmanship of the highest order! Because; words
After seeing more EQL footage I have to admit, I’m MORE impressed. Yeah the graphics still look like Hello Kitty Online combined with Barbies Disney dream house but good lord to quote a Sith I know, the POWA, UN-LMITED POWA!!!!
It’s like being a god! The second I saw the avatar do a Jedi like force hand movement to shape and move the pieces I perked up. Seeing a Babrie castle, a Mayan temple, and a freaken MECH get crafted was both exciting and impressive.
Do I buy into the fake Kickstarter thing? No. Do I buy into the 90’s Pro Wrestling style vignettes, no. Do I feel comfortable with the cash stuff, heck no. The good news is that is all icing on the cake, the cake being one that I get to bake, from darn near scratch!
I no longer know which I’m more excited for, EQL or EQN. I now see Landamark as Next’s crazy country cousin that doesn’t care if the rebel flags on his mud flaps are offensive. What I mean by that is EQL will not care what we make in it. I’m sure it will look like a bunch of ADHD people on speed were turned loose with a can of spray paint in each hand, and that excites the heck outta me!
An eternally changing landscape of completely random hand made sculptures that you can actually interact with? AN EXPLORER’S DREAM! AN ARTISTS DREAM! OMG what am I missing?!?!?
PVP, that is what I am missing. BUT, and I may be the only one, I could swear in the same vid that inspired this blog I heard Mr. EQDev himself make a trollingly passing comment about EQL players HAVING PVP settings! WHAAAAAAAT? NOW you're talking my language. The only thing better than seeing things that are better than I could EVER create is burning them down to make myself feel better to compensate for my lack of createability!
Will EQL feature some form of PVP? I hope so.
