Speed Elixir Announced

Electro Phantom Games announces Speed Elixir, an upcoming open-world, drift racing game coming to Windows in December, saying they've been working on the game and their proprietary Alpha Beast engine since 2013. The Speed Elixir website is live as a home base for the project, and this reveal trailer offers a look at what to expect, saying all the footage within was captured from the game engine, though it's not like the car in the video moves or anything. Here's more on what to expect:
"Speed Elixir" is an open world racing game that coming to PC in December 2016.We also plan to bring it to consoles at the same time but release date may be different.

"Speed Elixir" is an Arcade game about driving fast and Drifting at corners. This game inspired by best games in this genre like "Need For Speed:Hotpursuit" and "Need For Speed Rivals" but it added new gameplay elements to this formula. The result is an engaging gameplay for hardcore players and an enjoyable experience for casual gamers as well. Right now it has more than 15 types of game play but this may change after QA testing and we may remove some of them if we feel they are not as fun as we think.

"Speed Elixir" is under development since 2013 by "Electro Phantom Games" studio and it powered by ”Alpha Beast” engine.

”Alpha Beast” engine is designed from scratch by ”Electro Phantom Games” to address the challenges of this project. It’s a modern engine designed by Multi-threading in mind as an essential requirement for next gen gaming. The modern design of "Alpha Beast" engine allowd us to use the true power of current hardwares and using the latest technologies like HDR Lighting, Physical Based Rendering ,Day and Night cycle, Dynamic Weather and etc, to enhance the gameplay experience by high quality graphics.

Op Ed

Ars Technica - Take it from a pro, Street Fighter 5’s changes are for the greater good.
"The fact is Street Fighter V is a good thing for players and for the fighting community. The problems that plagued the game at launch—the weak Battle Lounge multiplayer lobbies that can only host two players at a time, the wonky servers, the lack of an arcade mode, the poor character customisation options—are relevant, and Capcom needs to fix them. But the bigger picture—the future growth of the community, the development of increasingly brilliant players, and a renewed relevance in an e-sports environment dominated by free-to-play MOBAs—is more important. Come Evo this July, where Street Fighter V will get its largest public outing, here's hoping that community and fans will embrace it."

Out of the Blue

Happy equinox, as today is the first day of spring here in the northern hemisphere, and the first day of fall down under. It's actually really cold around here today, but it's been mild for weeks after a mild winter. It's still a welcome occasion, and I'm looking forward to opening Manstovia for the cooking season any day now.
