When EQ2X was announced, few players were more excited than our own
Jason “Medawky” Bolton who grew up in Norrath and always had a soft
spot for the franchise. How did the newly-liberated shattered lands
live up to this prodigal son’s expectations, and is the new server
worth your time? Join us this week in Microcosms
to find out.
With the release of EQ2X
coinciding perfectly with the typical down cycle of MMOGs, that odd
time where we wait for new releases or new expansions, it seemed like
fate had finally intervened on my behalf. Under the guise of
researching and covering free-to-play titles I was able to fully
immerse myself in the goodness of EQ2X without having to fear the
threats of divorce that ended my previous love affair with the game
back in 2004. I did not squander this precious allotment of time, dear
readers; I took advantage of every second of it to bring you my
impressions of this new microtransaction-driven version.
