‘Warcraft’ Sequel Lets Gamers Play A Character Playing ‘Warcraft’

This one slipped by everybody. The highly anticipated sequel to World of Warcraft? It’s out. This isn’t just some expansion pack. Oh no. This open up an entirely new world to WoW gamers.

Instead of wasting time controlling your character, you control a character who controls the character. Brilliant! Epic moves are included, from the ear pick to soda sip. The level of immersion is unmatched. You can be someone else playing Warcraft. Why be someone who spends hours a day playing the game when you can pretend to be someone who spends hours a day playing the game?

THAT’S A RAP; New four-seat Aston Martin coupe is sure to be a star.(Features)

Sunday Mail (Glasgow, Scotland) August 15, 2010 Byline: Graeme FORKING out pounds 139,000 on a new set of wheels is getting hard to justify in these tough times. go to website aston martin rapide

But if you can pay pounds 7million for a pickled shark by Damien Hirst, investing a fraction of that in a beautiful piece of automotive history seems like a snip.

It may not come in a formaldehyde tank but the new Aston Martin Rapide is an artwork nonetheless.

While other manufacturers struggle to make a four-seater coupe that lets you keep your lunch down (I’m talking about you, Porsche), Aston have pulled it off in style.

The Rapide looks as gorgeous as any of its stablemates – that’s some compliment when you consider they include the DBS and Vantage. In fact, its elongated silhouette makes it the most elegant Aston around.

Driving along the roads around Peebles, heads were turning faster than you can say 007 as a millionpound fleet of Rapides sped past. Unlike the rest of the range, the Rapide is built by Magna in Graz, Austria, because Aston’s Gaydon facility couldn’t cope with the four-seat set-up. web site aston martin rapide

It’s no bad thing as this feels like one of the best bolted-together cars I’ve driven. The attention to detail is stunning. Each Rapide has nine coats of paint, while 10 animal hides are used to create the leather upholstery.

It takes a team of skilled craftsmen 220 hours to hand-build one.

Aston Martin are making history with their first four-seat model – and there is no doubt it lives up to its billing as a practical sportscar.

The rear bucket seats are cleverly carved out and use every inch of space available. I managed to get myself comfortable behind the wheel despite a 6ft 6in giant in the seat behind me.

The 301-litre luggage compartment lets you squeeze a couple of mediumsized suitcases in the back.

Despite having extra seats, the Rapide is still very much a sportscar. This is reflected in the envelopepushing driving dynamics. Steering is pin sharp while the ride is surprisingly forgiving. It holds sharp bends in a vice-like grip and the engine burble stirs the soul.

At the heart of this beast is a sixlitre V12 producing 470bhp. The six-speed Touchtronic transmission allows the driver to change gear automatically or via the paddles behind the steering wheel.

The price might pinch but letting loose on a quiet road is sheer joy.

ASTON Martin’s Rapide costs pounds 139,950. 0-62mph: 5.3secs Top speed: 188mph Fuel economy: 19mpg Emissions: 355g/km Equipment: Satellite navigation, Bang & Olufsen stereo, heated memory seats, dual cast brakes, Adaptive Damping System.
