  • EQ Too?.
    Vanguard Gate has posted a Vanguard: Saga of Heroes Interview featuring Bill Fisher. They laughed. They cried. They talked to some guy, and here is what he said:

    "Recently it was mentioned that you spent quite sometime in looking at persian/arabian/egyptian myths/stories in crafting the continent of Qalia. Would you like to elaborate on which myths in particular you were drawn towards?"

  • Gremlins with guided missles.
    GameDaily has posted a preview of Auto Assault focusing on the beta, which I thought was a big No-No. They came. They saw. They blew it up and said this while doing it:

    "Ah, the joys of beta testing. Just when ya think you're going to have a good night... ba-BLAM! Tonight was one of those nights. It started off great - I was able to log in after only a few "Failed to login! Try again in a few moments," messages. Fort Logan and the associated "public areas" were running with far less lag than last week, so the unbridled CAR-nage that was being touted for this game was actually being conveyed this time around. For a few brief, gleeful minutes... things were running smooth!"

  • A 2.5D MMORPG. In other news thieves apprehended with 0.5D of MMORPG in their possession.
    MMORPG.com has posted a Dark Solstice Interview featuring President, Frank Ross. No trans fats and 0.5D lighter than other MMORPGs. While whittling off 0.5D the developers where heard singing:

    "In an era when a flood of MMORPGs fight tooth and nail to set themselves apart from the crowd, along comes Dark Solstice, an MMORPG touting "2.5D graphics". It sounds like a gimmick, but with a unique visual style they have definitely differentiated themselves. Now we find out what is behind it as Staff Writer Jon Wood talks to Black Masque Games President Frank Ross."

  • Heavily armoured vehicles - breakneck speed - lasers.
    IGN has posted an Auto Assault preview covering the basics of the game. While careening recklessly through the wasteland shooting their flamethrower at anything that moved they were heard to yell:

    "There are three races to choose form here: humans, mutants and biomeks. The humans are, well, a lot like you and me. They've managed to survive the horrible contamination by investing heavily in science and genetic engineering. As a result, they've managed to develop new energy technologies and unleash some profound mental powers. The green-skinned mutants have embraced the contaminants that have poisoned the planet and have developed the power of regeneration. The biomeks are dedicated to the concept that robots ought to rule the planet."

  • Do Heroes Purchase Glamour Photos?
