  • Say that 10 times fast!

    Looking through the Ten Ton Hammer staff's E3 blogs there are some pretty note worthy things......or at least things guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
    “I’m jealous of John’s equipment,” - that may just be the funniest soundbyte of all time. Wondering what I am talking about? Read Shayalyn's Blog entry to find out who will never live that one down.
    Booth Babes, that was what was on some ( read male) of the TTH staffs minds. In Troon's Blog, he ponders the really tough question. Some one has to do it.
    What's the worse that could happen? Awenyddion found out, perhaps she won't ask those deeply philisophical questions at dinner anymore.
    And then there's Neddie, who narrowly escaped his El Al ( Air Isreal) airline trip and his wife's giggles. Intrigued yet?
    Pocky and Coffee.....do you even want to know?
    Massiah's adventure to E3 and his gaming on the dark side, "que ominious music".
    Kir gives a look into the TTH staff's schedule at E3.
    RadarX "I can't believe I ate that" - another dinner adventurer?
    Don't forget to check out our photo album and keep checking all week as more wil be added each day, probably several times a day knowing this gang!

    That's a look at Blogs for today. Check back tomorrow, there is sure to be more shenanigans from this crew !

  • Samyel got his hands on a copy of the Collector's Edition of Guild Wars Factions, even after convincing himself he wouldn't.

    It took me all of about thirty seconds to open it, and that's because my fingernails are short. The manager tore the cellophane and handed it back, so that I could enjoy that "Christmas morning" feeling of ripping off the wrapping.

  • Every gamer wants--no needs-- to know about the classes in a new game. But the Tolkien fans looking forward to beta of Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar (LOTRO) demand to know more than just the name of each class. They want assurance that each class closely adheres to the lore of Middle-earth while providing a functioning game mechanic. New LOTRO contributor Vastori takes a peek at the Champion and tells us what to expect.

    “Turbine has indeed said that although dual-wielding is a focus of the Champion, it is by no means the only choice for players. Players will in fact have several other choices they can make in order to make their Champion unique, from different weapon specialties to various battle stances. These choices will also help the Champion survive in battle. The ability to strike first will work heavily in the Champion’s favor since her speed and agility are not suited to the heavier armor types.”

  • Combat is an interesting mechanic in Auto Assault. It controls
    just about everything. You need to fight to gather money, crafting
    supplies, experience. You need to fight to finish missions and advance
    the story. It's pretty much at the center of everything. That's why
    mastering the art of combat in Auto Assault is always a great idea!

    "Combat is one of the most unique things I have experienced. The word
    itself is so simple, generally meaning to fight someone, but if you
    take it apart you can see layers and layers of depth. Battle tactics,
    positioning, battlefield awareness, and so much more is filed away
    under this one generic word. Fighting is much more then locking onto
    someone and blasting away!"

  • Yesterday we gave you a taste of the fan fiction Ralsu wrote prior to becoming Assistant Community Manager. Today we bring you another glimpse at the series of events that took place before Ralsu Vejes came to Stormreach. This tale recounts part of Nealgig's journey as he chases Ralsu to Stormreach.

    “Moving aside his green cloak and reaching into the boot of his left foot, the stranger produced a silvery dagger and raised it over his head. Then the stranger plunged the point into the flesh of whatever tentacled denizen of the sea the dwarf had on his plate. The blade pierced the food and penetrated the wooden dish it rested on to embed itself into the table beneath.”

  • Auto Assault supports a very unique feature, in-game voice
    communication. Every convoy out there has the ability to chat with
    each other in real time! So the next time you're in the heat of
    battle, don't stop to type it out – just say it! Our Voice
    Communications Basics guide has been updated with information on the
    Auto Assault voice chat system and what you need to do to utilize it.

    "Being simple and to the point with the information you want to
    provide can go along way in helping everyone be understood. If say
    someone is coming from the northwest and you spot them, saying
    "incoming northwest!" is preferable over "OH NO GUYS THERE IS A GROUP

  • Now if after reading the Getting Started Guide, you are loaded up but Auto Assault is giving you a few problems, don't worry! Grab your electronic toolkit and get to work at tweaking Auto Assault's performance to the point where it purrs like a kitten (with rocket launchers, lots of rocket launchers).

    "You may notice that if you have an older system then you probably
    will hit speed bumps while travelling through the wastelands.
    Slowdowns, jitteriness, and a myriad of other symptoms that come with
    aging computers can plague your experience within Auto Assault. Kind
    of like having a nice chassis but an old cranky engine inside, it just
    doesn't work efficiently. Worry not though; there are some tricks you
    can do to make Auto Assault run better without having to pay for new

  • David "Xerin" Piner put together a guide on getting Auto
    Assault installed on your computer, registered, and ready to play. So
    fret not about getting into the world of Auto Assault, it's actually
    easy and fun (if you have snacks)!

    "Ah, the joy of obtaining a brand new game. There is no better feeling
    then ripping apart the plastic, stickers, security tape, mechanized
    lock systems, another layer of plastic, some kind of security
    clearance, fingerprint identification and then finally taking the game
    out of its case. While that isn't entirely true, it is quite fun to
    get a new game! Since games are about fun and not frustration, this
    guide will go over step by step the process of installing,
    registering, and logging into Auto Assault."

    So get those snacks handy and read the guide

  • Another round in the Role-Playing series by AnomalousSilence. Today he looks at selecting a server type to begin your RPing adventure. Which server should you choose? There are Player vs Enviroment servers, Player vs Player servers, and Role-Playing Preffered servers. Which is right for your Role-Playing type?

    For pure role-playing purposes, it is obvious which server you would choose based on the above examples: the world used in the first example with open PvP. This is, sadly, not really a possible outcome because there is no single server that is perfect in role-playing. Thus, the decision to join either a PvP-RP or a PvE-RP server should be based on both the role-playing qualities and the negative, /OOC qualities.
