Star Citizen ‘Bengal Carrier’ Leaked

Star Citizen ‘Bengal Carrier’ Leaked - 2015-05-25 15:20:13

Footage from Star Citizen has leaked online after a community manager at Cloud Imperial Games accidently posted a screen shot that included a partial URL. The URL led to the rest of the games assets roughly 11 hours ago when some random torrent user guessed the rest. The user found 48 gigabytes of unreleased assets of in-game footage.

This slippage went unnoticed long enough for the download to finish. CIG was unable to shut it down fast enough and now its available to a select few who have the ‘consumer’ version, which costs $10 dollars.

The few that have acquired the resources to the game have loaded them into CryEngine. Since that’s the engine Star Citizen is being developed in, users have noticed several things already by simply taking a tour around which you can see here.

Many assets from the torrent download won’t load properly and look terrible in comparison to previous footage shown from the game, obviously. Clearly a work in progress, the footage shown was likely being developed by an in-house toolset that the developers use that is most likely outdated.

Some have checked out the leaked assets just to witness the sheer scale of the  ‘Bengal Carrier’ before it’s actually placed into the game.

The developers clearly didn’t want people to see it in this condition but it’s out there. Star Citizen has so far raked in roughly 83 million dollars through crowd funding sources to date.

Star Citizen is expected to release some time in 2016.

Are you a PC gamer looking forward to Star Citizen? Let me know in the comments below.

Wii Started the Fire

Wii Started the Fire 2

A Colorado man lost his RV home to a fire earlier last week. According to investigations by firefighters, it was caused by a Nintendo Wii.

Trevor Pellegrin was at a meeting when he got a phone call from his neighbours saying the RV was on fire.

“When I opened the door, I got thrown back by thick black smoke and flames.” Pellegrin told KOAA 5.

According to Pellegrin, the Wii was off, but was still plugged into the wall. It’s said that the fire started from inside when the console overheated, and ignited a nearby cushion.

Usually with home electronics, fires are caused by overloaded outlets or wiring problems. Dusting and compressed air cans can also play a part.

Most of Pellegrin’s possessions were lost in the fire, including a melted HDTV, burned clothes, the charred Wii, and the smoke damaged roof. The Xbox 360 survived the fire though.

“I was still trying to get my things out of there,” Pellegrin told KKTV, “I was able to save my wallet, court paperwork and some of my more important things but other than that, you know, everything was pretty much gone at that point.”

Pellegrin was watching Netflix on the Wii and turned it off before leaving. He wasn’t aware that sleep mode still meant the console was active.

“There’s no warning label on that Wii saying unplug after use that it may cause a fire, there’s no warning label so I didn’t know to do that, to unplug it.”

According to Polygon, fire investigators say they’re 99% sure the Wii started the fire. A fire department spokesperson told KKTV other sources of ignition had been ruled out.

Trevor’s Father, Howard Pellegrin, has also commented, saying,  “Over the years we’ve had so many game controls for all the kids that we’ve had and I never would have thought something like this could have been possible.”

Both Trevor and KKTV, the local news station, have contacted Nintendo for comments, but have not received any replies.

This is the first time a Wii has been the cause of a fire. Nintendo is known to make safe consoles. After all, there’s the charred Game Boy that survived the Gulf War and still works to this day.

My father doesn’t ask much of me… I mean yeah, he asked me to be a superhero… which is kind of a big “Son, could you do me a favor?”, I admit… But apart from that he lets me be. He doesn’t criticize how I dress, either. He doesn’t judge. So he comes to me with something he needs doing… What can I say… “yeah, Dad, you want, you got,” right? Except it’s only then I learn what that something is… defend the city against a god
Starman aka Jack Knight

This is not the world that our heroes once knew and it all changed the day the solar flare happened and a mechanical army lead by Brainiac marched over humanity. Humans and metahumans have been hunted to near extinction but some fight back against the apocalypse in hopes of changing the fate of a world most consider dead.

Our heroes stand poised to storm the stronghold of the evil Brainiac and his armies in the Lexcorp building in Metropolis but something is amiss. The Batcomputer says that a solution lies inside the fortress of Lexcorp but what is it? A mysterious experiment and a foe that no one expected all await our heroes. Can the war be won today or will the fall of mankind happen and it crushed under the mechanical boot of Brainiac.

These are the days of future crisis.
