  • Happy Hour With NCsoft!
    And it wouldn't be happy hour without Auto Assault! Wait, why wasn't I invited?
    Oh, well... Sounds like GamerGod
    had a grand time!

    We had the distinct pleasure of attending the 2nd edition of the Roadhouse
    Happy Hour, hosted by NCsoft’s Valerie "Pann" Massey, the
    Auto Assault Community Coordinator. In attendance were several members of
    the press and Content Leads from the NetDevil offices, Adam “Snipehunter”
    Maxwell (Mutant), Chris “Ombwah” Holtorf (Human) and Hal “maRaider”
    Hanlin (Biomek).
    As we joined them on Margarita Monday, they appeared in a very decent mood
    and quite full of humor. The topics of the day were centered on two themes:
    How did the apocalypse begin and what would bring a player to side with a
    particular faction?. Little time was wasted as they launched into a tumultuous
    rendition of history from each perspective. They all agreed on the beginning
    and little else following. They told us that humanity had been living contentedly
    on earth prior to the meteor shower, which was not a meteor shower at all,
    but in fact pieces of alien space craft coming apart around the earth.

    Major props to Pann! She's my home girl!

  • And without a "Thanks for all the fish!" even! I would say how rude but I fired it up and then promptly quit myself. Wired has a fabulous article on the mass exodus of players within the SWG Universe. No longer is it the complex challenging game that it used to be.

    You should read it, it's good.

  • You know this game really NEEDED a new review. I tried playing it again recently and what I experienced went beyond confusion. *whisper* It was easier the other way *end whisper*

    Anyhoo, IGN does a marvelous job of explaining, critiquing and whatnot. They end up giving the game a 7.7/ 10. Not too shabby although nothing of supersonic stardom. For a game that's over it's prime it's a good score.
