Star Citizen's Discount Package for Backers - briefly
(hx) 06:29 PM EST - Feb,12 2016 - Post a comment / read (3)
Roberts Space Industries announces the chance for backers to buy a second Star Citizen bundle at a discount to give away as a gift before the price increases of their impeding package split.
The Star Citizen/Squadron 42 package split is almost here, so we thought we’d give existing backers one last chance to get both elements together at a small discount. All existing Star Citizen backers will have access to a $40 USD giftable Aurora package up until the package split occurs on February 14th, 2016! Why not take this final opportunity to gift your Valentine both Squadron 42 and Star Citizen's persistent universe?1

1 – DISCLAIMER: Cloud Imperium Games assumes no responsibility for any impact on your relationship that might occur should you decide to gift your significant other an Aurora MR package instead of, say, flowers and candy. That’s not to say it’s a terrible idea all around, as there certainly are plenty of people who’ll appreciate bare-knuckle multiplayer space combat in an immersive multiplayer universe and epic, cinematic storytelling… just, use common sense on this one. Maybe err on the side of buying a pillow that has ‘I LOVE YOU’ with a picture of a bear embroidered on it instead of the Aurora MR, the latest hard-flying starter ship from Roberts Space Industries’ legendary line of sturdy spacecraft.

Need for Speed Coming to PC on March 17th - briefly
(hx) 06:50 PM EST - Feb,11 2016 - Post a comment
Need For Speed will be released on March 17, and it will include a host of improvements, some of which should probably have been included in the game in the first place. As Ghost Games mentioned, Need For Speed was delayed in part because of the locked frame rate. The PC version will come with completely unrestricted framerates. Ghost Games also included 4K textures for gamers with 4K displays. When Need For Speed comes out on PC, the game will finally have a manual transmission option. The original release of the game didn't have one, and Ghost Games said that the feature was one of the additions that the community demanded the most. The developer said that the console versions of the game will also get the manual transmission option when the game launches on PC.

Wheel support is another community-requested feature that Ghost Games has taken seriously. The company said that the PC version of the game will ship with support for select wheels from Logitech, Thrustmaster and Fanatec. It’s not clear if wheel support extends to the console versions of Need For Speed.
