    has a preview of one of the most anticipated titles of 2006, Auto
    Assault
    .

    Auto Assault is cruising toward completion, and we've checked out the latest
    developments in this high-speed online role-playing game.

    Even though it's still in its lengthy beta-testing phase, Auto Assault is
    making great strides as it races to launch next year. This online role-playing
    game from NCSoft and developer NetDevil promises to be one of the fastest
    games you'll play in 2006, thanks to the fact that you'll spend large portions
    of the game speeding around a wasteland in a combat vehicle, blasting everything
    that moves. Forget about the chain mail armor and the two-handed sword, because
    this online RPG is all about big guns and tricked-out rides. We recently got
    an updated look at the many new improvements that have been made in Auto Assault
    since we last saw it earlier this summer.

  • Gaming Steve's Got What You Need!
    Experimenting with podcasts today is Gaming
    Steve.
    He got a chance to sit down with a few fellas from Auto
    Assault
    .

    In this special Gaming Steve episode I sit down with Scott Brown
    and Ryan Seabury from NetDevil, the makers of the upcoming Auto Assault. In
    the interview we cover the game's setting, the three player races, the character
    creation process, new features in the public Beta, the crafting, the weapons,
    the cars, and the oh-so-much-fun mindless destruction. Enjoy!

  • Let's hope you never run into the dreaded GamerGod during a dungeon crawl.
    GamerGod makes some good points about why Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach satisfies its DnD heritage and makes for a good MMORPG.

    I’ve played D&D for as long as I can remember, and I always wanted someone to make a good D&D game where I played one character in a party and went out adventuring. I always dreamt that one day there would be a totally interactive D&D world where my character could live and meet people, slay mighty dragons, and have people recognize who I was. I've been thinking a lot about what I know of this game, and the thing that I like most is how this MMO has set itself apart from the rest. Most of the elements in DDO are headed in different directions to other MMO's; it forces you to form parties, real time combat, no mounts, and no houses. It's a risky strategy, considering many people play MMO's to buy houses, ride horses, and farm gold and become an almighty ruler of the game - but I think it's a brilliant idea and a brilliant-looking game. For many people, this game will not live up to their hopes or expectations, and although I haven’t played the game yet I'm eagerly awaiting the release. What do I think? Is DDO worth all the hype? My answer is that my dream may no be longer a dream.

  • Gamespot has a Hands-On Preview of Auto Assault today. Find out what they have to say about Character Creation, Opening Levels and Graphics.

    The entire character-creation system has been revamped since we last saw it, and now it looks as though it's close to final. The system gives you plenty of control to tweak your character's appearance, and you can adjust your body style, the scale or size of your character, his or her skin color, as well as their primary and secondary color. Then there are various hair styles, hair colors, accessories (such as helmets and mouth pieces), and more that you can select. After that, though, you can tweak your vehicle's colors and paint scheme, as well as choose from an assortment of wheel rims.

    If you're a post apocalyptic, run things over with your Hummer fan, visit our Auto Assault Fan-site!

  • Paying $15 a month not to play a game.
    TGDaily has chatted with a World of Warcraft bot programmer. You too, can pay not to play a game.

    " Mercury told us that the primary purpose of WoWglider is to allow busy people to "level up" their characters. When he first started playing WoW, Mercury felt left behind because his friends were already at level 60 and he had little time to catch up. "I also wanted to get to 60 to come along on the instance runs, but I had no time to grind it out between work and social life." Many areas of the game are only available to higher level characters, so Mercury wrote WoWglider to accelerate his game. "

  • Holiday cheer gets patched into World of Warcraft.
    Blizzard has their World of Warcraft servers down today to patch in some holiday hootinanny. Oh, and the big-time losers in the battlegrounds (or cheaters) no longer get any rewards.

    Battlegrounds

    • Battles must now last at least ten minutes after the start of the battle in order for the losing team to receive a Mark of Honor.

    World

    • New quests for the Feast of Winter Veil have been added! See your Smokywood Pastures customer service representative in Ironforge and Orgrimmar for more details!
    • The level of many of last year's Feast of Winter Veil quests have been adjusted so that reputation rewards are available in their full amount for players of all levels able to do them.
    • Fixed a bug with both versions of the quest "A Smokywood Pastures' Thank You!" that was sending mail out immediately rather than on the intended delay.
    • In a startling discovery, Mistletoe sold on last year's vendors is now named "Fake Mistletoe". A Smokywood Pastures spokesman was quoted as saying, "Sorry, no refunds."
    • Some of the Southsea Dock Workers that were working under the boat should now be much more accessible to players.
    • Andre Firebeard no longer has a chance of dropping a Wastewander Water Pouch.
    • All OOX Distress Beacons are now multi-drop; everyone in a group should be able to receive one if it drops.
    • Fixed a bug with Oglethorpe Obnoticus' gossip where he was being much more familiar with strangers than he should have been.

    General

    • Various preparations added to the client for Patch 1.9. "
