First off, I agree about wanting a jump button in most MMOs, even if it does not really get you over terrain/pre-mapped environments. For me, it's something to do that at least breaks the monotony of travel with doing something silly.

If we could add a "skip" or "bunny hop" button or even a "cartwheel" button to the standard, "jump" button, I'd be a happy camper, but I can't speak for my horse/mount, because my horse doing cartwheels while I am mounted tends not to be good on my horse's back! ;P

Second, I like the unplanned synchronicity you have their, Eliot. In your first question, you answered a question about Wildstar and in the second question about Jumpgate:Evolution, your link about "eating crow" leads us to an article whose second question asks about if we will hear more details about "that secret MMO Carbine Studios is making". ;P

Without the ability to jump, a game doesn't feel right. You are immersing yourself into a character that can do all sorts of fun things, but you can't jump? When I am excited, I jump around like a maniac. Not the same when you just use an emote.

WHy are people saying WoW is getting an equipment tab ? It's not. They are giving players the ability to change the appearance of weapons and armour (with limitations). They still have to have the originals to copy the design to the new equipment to.

Eliot, yes, that's what I thought after seeing the first(?) trailer for Wildstar: They done took Mal, Inara and Jayne, cartoonified em up and put em in an MMO. It's the dialogue that's very Whedonesque:

"Ah'm securin' the perimeter."

"Every life on this planet is precious . . . except that one."

"Shut up and kill something."

Ah, poor Jumpgate Evolution. Looked like such a promising concept. :(
