Yugos with Flamethrowers
Gamer girl entertainment mag KillerBetties.com previews Auto Assault, the sci-fi action MMO with a vehicular destruction flair. No mention is made anywhere about what made these Betties resort to violence in the first place.
I also learned that it's possible (not to mention fun!) to plunge headfirst off a cliff without sustaining damage (or, at least, I didn't take any damage). My car landed upside-down, but righted itself after a second or so. While the car was cumbersome to maneuver at first, once I got the hang of it I could do nifty little tricks like 360's and sliding stops. It's rather fun to come skidding up to an NPC sideways. It would be even more fun if the NPCs reacted by jumping back in alarm or scolding drivers for their antics, but alas, they just stand there.
