EVE Blog Banter, the monthly EVE Online blogging extravaganza created by CrazyKinux. The EVE Blog Banter involves an enthusiastic group of gaming bloggers, a common topic within the realm of EVE Online, and a week to post articles pertaining to the said topic. The resulting articles can either be short or quite extensive, either funny or dead serious, but are always a great fun to read! Any questions about the EVE Blog Banter should be directed here. Check out other EVE Blog Banter articles at the bottom of this post!
This month’s banter comes to us from CrazyKinux himself, who asks the following: First there was the MMO on the PC, and now with the recent announcement of DUST 514, EVE will soon be moving onto consoles. But what about mobile? Allow your imagination to run wild for a second and describe how you would see EVE being ported to mobile devices, whether the iPhone/iPod touch, Blackberrys or Android-based devices. Dream the impossible for us!
Mike leaned back in the chair and pulled out his compad. “Lessee, market is doing its own thing, the frigates have another half day to cook . . . ” His pad beeped as a new message came in. “Ah, new addition to the corp . . .” He jotted off a quick welcome and continued his perusal of the technical reviews while his coffee was brought. Another beep. “Oh! So someone is taking the bait on that POS in wormspace?”
He quickly paid his bill and sprinted to get back to the ship in time to catch the action.
I would like to see some things brought to Push rather than pull tech. Personally I use Capsuleer and love it (thanks Roc/Markus and Chris) But I keep imagining the next step. Alarm chimes as skill queue gets too short or a new skill completes. Mail, via Cosmos, straight to me. Warnings when special events are happening, preset for my needs, POS needs fuel or is under attack . . .that sort of thing. Or industrial and research jobs completed.
Do I dream really big and want to fly my ships on an iPhone? No
Do I already use my iPhone to follow blogroll, ccp dev chats, and Podcasts about eve? Yes. (Shoutout to Podded, Warchilde and Dillon Arclight)
Security concerns leave me to be slightly hesitant to be able to affect change form an iPhone on the game itself.
Anyone who thinks Eve stops when you get up from the computer, has not played it in depth, yet.
There is always something else to learn
