Meep Meep: American Truck Simulator Teases Arizona

American Truck Simulator [official site] is a lot better with geology than greenery, I was disappointed to discover. I'd hoped to follow trucking routes through redwood forests and other lush pockets of Northern California but no, it's all a bit grim and disappointing. ATS doesn't remotely capture what I remember from a road trip through there. However, its scrubby, desert-y lands are far nicer, which…

Euro Truck Simulator 2 Ira En France Avec DLC Nouveau

SCS Software sont... oh bugger it, I'll spare you my broken French. Let's start over. SCS Software are busy trucking around America now, but they still have a folks who stayed home to keep an eye on Europe. The Euro Truck Simulator 2 [official site] team have announced they're revamping and expanding France in a "major DLC expansion", which sounds lovely. America's wide skies may…

American Truck Simulator Reduces Fines, Adds Truck

Today I spent 17 minutes watching a trucker give a tour of her truck's cabin, thanks to Adam. It's fair to say American Truck Simulator [official site] has filled us dreams of big skies and open roads, and I'm sure he wasn't at all saying "I wish I could be in this truck rather than here with YOU, ALICE. YOU." For folks who also dream…

American Truck Simulator Rolling Out Today, Early

Get a flask of coffee brewing, brush up on your CB slang, find an empty plastic bottle, and stop listening to me spouting rubbish. Here, you might instead enjoy these photos from inside truckers' cabins. Or you can go on your own trucking adventure sooner than expected. American Truck Simulator [official site] was due to launch tomorrow, but developers SCS Software have decided they'll launch…

American Truck Simulator’s Free Nevada & Arizona DLC

How handy it is to have an American on call! I've been phoning Hayden up in the morning (or the middle of his night, whatever), with queries like "What the hell is 'cilantro'?" and "I'm sorry, but: a FANNY PACK?" It's also handy to have one write about American Truck Simulator [official site] and spot basical geographical facts like: Las Vegas is definitely not in…

American Truck Simulator Gets A New Tractor-Trailer

There I was, sitting on a beach sipping a strawberry daiquiri, slowly turning my blindingly pale body to a shade befitting a sun god, when I got the call. It was Graham. "Hayden, please: We need you to come out of retirement," he said. "There's a new-ish trailer for American Truck Simulator [official site] but none of us have known how to write it up."…

American Truck Simulator Starts Hauling In February

It's almost here, the day the games press have dreamed of for years: the release of American Truck Simulator [official site]. I try to steer clear of press events and the games press in general but, every time I encounter those ruffians, I notice they're even cosplaying the drive 'em up in their everyday lives. Blue jeans, t-shirt, a checked shirt over the top, ratty…

California Dreaming: American Truck Simulator

Christmas is, of course, the time when Santa Claus comes to visit every lucky boy and girl. He does that in the form of a rosy-cheeked image, plastered across the side of a Coca Cola truck. Nothing says "goodwill to all" quite like an appropriated corporate mascot slapped on the flank of a vehicle delivering syrupy slugs of overpriced brown fizz to the masses. There's…

American Truck Simulator Trailer Hits Route 101

I admire Euro Truck Simulator but, well, Europe's a bit mundane. Give me endless skies, wild lands, Places From The Movies, big trees. Give me American Truck Simulator [official site]. SCS's next trucking sim takes a whistlestop tour of the USA in a new trailer, and I dig it. Chills ran down my spine seeing a truck cross the Golden Gate Bridge out of that…

I Am Gonna Drive In Sweden: Euro Truck Simulator 2

As if the upcoming release of American Truck Simulator [official site] wasn't enough, SCS Software are continuing to expand Euro Truck Simulator 2 [official site]. The Scandinavian DLC will be with us soon and the map has finally been revealed. It doesn't cover the Northern reaches of the Northern reaches, but there are plenty of cities scattered around, and SCS reckon the roads and scenery…

Spend One Vicarious Hour With American Truck Simulator

American Truck Simulator [official site-ish] looks hard. Parallel parking is already the devil, but the idea of slotting ten tons of flammable material into the back of gas station just takes things to extremes. SCS Software recently unleashed an hour's worth of alpha gameplay footage from the game and it's precisely what you might have expected: careful turns; meticulous inspections of both wing mirrors; the…

Road To Joy: American Truck Simulator Images

When Euro Truck Simulator 2 worked its way into my dreams, I hoped that it might be the first in a convoy of vehicular profession simulators. Sadly, OMSI aside, the so-called simulators that I've tried since have mostly mirrored John's experiences with Woodcutter Simulator 2013. I love the idea of performing tasks that don't involve guns death and destruction while journeying through a recreation of…
