Anyone interested in upcoming tank battle MMO World of Tanks - yes, both of you - should skedaddle over to Eurogamer, who today uploaded my hands on impressions of the beta. The game's actually a bit good, with lots of tension and keeping your eyes peeled for the enemy and then Oh, Mercy, Would You Look At The Size Of Him, and then BANG and then JESUS CHRIST. The highlight of the preview is probably this:
By contrast, your first impression of the tank garage is much more likely to make you feel you've taken a wrong turn somewhere. Yesterday I was, no word of a lie, looking over my PzKpfw III Ausf A and wondering whether to swap the 3.7cm KwK36 L/46.5 for either the 5cm KwK 38 L/42 or the 2cm KwK38 L/55. I was also eyeing up additional grousers and some APCR shells.
In reality, this is all simple stu- oh, my goodness! Are you crying? Please don't cry. It was only a stupid example and the tank development isn't like it sounds at all. Let me explain.
Well, if the Eurogamer commenters will insist on being very rude to my articles then I've no choice but to make insinuations about their masculinity in my copy, have I?
