  • A New Auto Assault How-To Series from NetDevil!

    Today we bring you a new how-to series from the creator of Auto Assault, NetDevil! To kick things off, there is a new how-to guide all about crafting. It takes you from looting the materials all the way to having a shiny (slightly) new item!

    People always say it’s easier to blow stuff up than to build ‘em from scratch. Pull the trigger, Pike explodes. Drive the wasteland at full speed, osterake becomes instant roadkill. If you want something, you go out and take it. They put one of yours in the hospital, you put one of theirs in the morgue. That’s the Auto Assault way!

    Grab your salvaged nuts and bolts and head on down to Auto Assault - TenTonHammer to fix up those broken parts.

  • It's not Vegas, but these slots will take your money.

    NCSoft / ArenaNet announced that, starting this summer, alternate character slots for subscription-free MMO Guild Wars may be purchased for $9.99 / €8.99 / £5.99 a piece. This is a one-time fee. From GamesIndustry.biz:

    As a result, NCsoft presumably believes the facility will enjoy a broader appeal than it would for traditional massively-multiplayer games, and that relatively casual players as well as hardcore Guild Wars fans will find the chance to play as more alternative characters - while retaining access to other unlocked content - worth the extra fee.

    Given that buying the box for $52.99 grants you four character slots, I suppose you could argue that the $9.99 fee gives you a ~$3.25 piecemeal discount. If you love your PvP, this could be a nice way to supplement your collection post-Factions expansion.

  • Rockdirect produces limited edition DDO laptop

    Be the talk of the LAN party with your new Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach themed laptop from Rockdirect. DDO included. As seen on Hexus.net:

    Rockdirect are releasing a special limited edition of their Pegasus 650 mobile gaming laptop, of which 100 will be sold, with Dungeons and Dragons Online Stormreach themed artwork on the notebook, along with a free copy of the game.

    Wha? You don't have one yet? Well, me either. In game conference press rooms, the "What if the hokey pokey really is what it's all about?" bumper sticker on my laptop subjects me to enough scornful laughter, thanks.

    Check out the DDO limited edition Pegasus 650 laptop from Rockdirect at Hexus.net.

  • It's a famous landmark and now you get to see it through the eyes of the Turbine crew. See the Brandywine Bridge here. and read the lore behind it.

    The Bridge of Stonebows, as the Brandywine Bridge was once called, was built originally by the Men of Arnor as a causeway across the Barandúin River on the Great East Road. When the founders of the Shire were granted their land by the king of Arthedain, the price was simple: to maintain and care for the Bridge so that travel into the West would never be impeded. The Hobbits of the Shire performed their duty, even long after the North-kingdom failed, and maintained the great stone bridge, denying none passage, Man, Elf, or Dwarf. Though the river's name was changed to the Brandywine and the bridge itself became the Brandywine Bridge, the Hobbits of the Shire continue to care for and keep watch on the Bridge.

  • What would have made this perfect is if they had two animated heads in jars doing these news reports in a sports cast style. I have visions of Futurama floating in my head.

    We have brought on about half a dozen freelance "game reporters" to help cover Guild Wars from the viewpoint of competitive play. The first two of their articles describe matches that took place during last weekend's Guild Wars Factions Championship Seasonal Playoffs. Catch the battle reports linked from this page.
