  • The theme you have all been waiting for.
    A World of Warcreaft XP theme has been created by Stardock. We think that they wrote this:

    "Now you can enjoy the look and feel of World of Warcraft even when log out of the game, thanks to the specially designed World of Warcraft Windows XP desktop theme pack created by Stardock. Using Stardock's Object Desktop technology, the Worldof Warcraft theme pack changes your title bars, Start menu, icons, push buttons, borders, and much more to mirror the user interface from the game."

  • Cars and heavy explosives.
    The good folks at NCSoft sent us the latest Auto Assault FAQ. We're almost sure that they wrote this:

    "Q: How does this compare to other MMORPGs?

    A: Auto Assault is the fastest, most destructive MMO ever! It takes everything you expect from a full-featured, deep MMORPG - long term character development, exploration, missions, crafting, and lots of players on-line playing together. Auto Assault then adds some of the most exciting and spectacular elements of action and shooter games. Auto Assault is the only MMORPG to feature a high-end physics engine that renders dynamic, fully destructible environments, rag-doll character deaths and more. Additionally, Auto Assault is fast and exciting – tire-shredding, mobile combat, quick grouping and fast movement around the world. There’s definitely no more running for an age to get to your next quest. Auto Assault also features an incredible loot system and unparalleled PvP that’s truly global in scale."

     

    There's a whole lot more.... and Read More will get you there.

  • WoW, another title for XBox 360?
    Blizzard has been in contact with Microsoft to talk about putting World of Warcraft on XBox 360. 1UP has the scoop. We're nearly positive that they wrote this:

    ""We've been in contact with Microsoft...," said Paul Sams, vice president of business operations at Blizzard. "World of Warcraft was really built with a focus on PC, and while I think it certainly could get to Xbox, it's not something that at this moment we've decided to do.""
