3rd Kickstarter update of Quantum Rush sheds some light on the racers pick-up-system

NewsCanada  -  3rd Kickstarter update of Quantum Rush sheds some light on the racers pick-up-system
Online games developer GameArt Studio is really taking off at the moment. At the end of August they lanuched their new project – online racer Quantum Rush – on kickstarter and today they already announced the 3rd update, that highlights the pick-ups.

(NEWSCANADA)  GAME  TECH  –  The first two updates delivered some sweet eye-candy as well as a ton of information about the game and the vision of the developers.

Update 1 answered questions from the community, such as why Quantum Rush will be free-to-play or if gamepads will be supported. You can read all questions and answers on the kickstarter-page of Quantum Rush.

Update 2 showcased some art assets for racetracks . A second track was introduced and proved the designers attention to detail and their dedication to create work of the highest quality. More information on this second update can be found on the kickstarter page and on the Quantum Rush blog.

Update 3 is about pick-ups: Quantum Rush is a racer that emphasizes combat between players. Therefore the pick-ups play a vital role in Quantum Rush.

Pick-ups are available on all race tracks and can be collected by driving over them. In Quantum Rush there are 3 pick-up item groups – offensive, defensive and manipulative.

The Homing Missile is an offensive pick-up which travels along the track and automatically targets the next opponent in front of you.

An example of a defensive pick-up is the impenetrable Firewall which nullifies negative effects and damage from all sources.

Manipulative type pick-ups provide utilities that have a positive effect on your racer and others that have a negative effect on your opponent’s racers. For example an Energy Cell can regenerate your shield and boost the energy of your racer. The Vision Scrambler on the other hand is used to obscure the targets field of view and hamper their ability to target other players, handy when you are about to over-take.

The pick-ups provide everything an action-packed racer needs. Those who like to plan strategically as well as those who prefer blazing guns can look forward to all the different opportunities Quantum Rush has to offer.

To make sure that no pick-up is too powerful or insignificant, we are working hard to balance out powers and effects of each pick-up. This ensures that Quantum Rush is a fair and enjoyable experience for all players.

A video that was uploaded together with the update on kickstarter provides a nice visual impression of the things to come. You can also watch it on the youtube channel of GameArt Studio and the Quantum Rush blog.

Burn The Queen: Argentina Protest burn an effigy of the Queen and a Union Flag

(NEWSCANADA)   NEWS  WATCH   –   Left-wing protesters have staged a demonstration against Britain’s involvement in the International Olympics Committee in Buenos Aires.

Around 250 demonstrators chanted anti-British slogans and burned an effigy of the Queen and a Union Flag outside the committee.

The protest was the latest by the Quebracho group that in April last year staged demonstrations in front of the British Embassy in the Argentinian capital.

The Quebracho group stages rallies calling for the Falkland Islands to be handed over to Argentine sovereignty in the wake of the 1982 Falklands War.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) will decider later today between Tokyo, Madrid and Istanbul for the next city to host the Olympic Games.

After a two-year campaign, the three cities spent their final full day of campaigning on Friday attempting to secure last-minute support for their bids.

Tokyo has been seen as a slight favourite, but its status has been undermined by concerns over the leak of radioactive water from the crippled Fukushima plant.

Madrid, once discounted because of Spain’s financial problems, has generated late interest and could be poised for a surprise win.

But Istanbul, with the civil war in neighbouring Syria and possible military strikes against Bashar al Assad‘s regime, looks like an outsider.

Madrid Mayor Ana Botella said: “There are all kinds of predictions, all kinds of bets, but the only numbers that matter are the ones from the votes on Saturday afternoon.”

IOC members vote by secret ballot. Some members will make a decision after the three cities stage their final 45-minute presentations today.

A British think-tank has also suggested that the cultural legacy of the Paralympics has let down disabled artists.

Demos also suggested benefits including participation and engagement were short term.

The concerns, in a review titled One Year On, have been raised by leading disabled artists and creative experts who suggest there has been more focus on sport than the art

Madrid Mayor Ana Botella said: “There are all kinds of predictions, all kinds of bets, but the only numbers that matter are the ones from the votes on Saturday afternoon.”

IOC members vote by secret ballot. Some members will make a decision after the three cities stage their final 45-minute presentations today.

A British think-tank has also suggested that the cultural legacy of the Paralympics has let down disabled artists.

Demos also suggested benefits including participation and engagement were short term.

The concerns, in a review titled One Year On, have been raised by leading disabled artists and creative experts who suggest there has been more focus on sport than the art

Burn The Queen: Argentina Protest burn an effigy of the Queen and a Union Flag

(NEWSCANADA)   NEWS  WATCH   –   Left-wing protesters have staged a demonstration against Britain’s involvement in the International Olympics Committee in Buenos Aires.

Around 250 demonstrators chanted anti-British slogans and burned an effigy of the Queen and a Union Flag outside the committee.

The protest was the latest by the Quebracho group that in April last year staged demonstrations in front of the British Embassy in the Argentinian capital.

The Quebracho group stages rallies calling for the Falkland Islands to be handed over to Argentine sovereignty in the wake of the 1982 Falklands War.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) will decider later today between Tokyo, Madrid and Istanbul for the next city to host the Olympic Games.

After a two-year campaign, the three cities spent their final full day of campaigning on Friday attempting to secure last-minute support for their bids.

Tokyo has been seen as a slight favourite, but its status has been undermined by concerns over the leak of radioactive water from the crippled Fukushima plant.

Madrid, once discounted because of Spain’s financial problems, has generated late interest and could be poised for a surprise win.

But Istanbul, with the civil war in neighbouring Syria and possible military strikes against Bashar al Assad’s regime, looks like an outsider.

Madrid Mayor Ana Botella said: “There are all kinds of predictions, all kinds of bets, but the only numbers that matter are the ones from the votes on Saturday afternoon.”

IOC members vote by secret ballot. Some members will make a decision after the three cities stage their final 45-minute presentations today.

Tokyo to host 2020 Olympic Games

Tokyo to host 2020 Olympic Games

NewsCanada  -   Tokyo to host 2020 Olympic Games

 Tokyo, Japan will host the 2020 Olympic Games, the International Olympic Committee announced Saturday. The city beat out Istanbul and Madrid to win the contest to host the games.

(NEWSCANADA)   NEWS  WATCH   After two years of intense lobbying and tens of millions of dollars spent by candidate cities, the International Olympic Committee is set to choose between Istanbul and Tokyo regarding who will be entrusted with hosting the 2020 summer Games.

The two cities had 70 minutes each to present their bids on Saturday to the about 100 members of the IOC. Ninety-seven were eligible to vote in the first round in Buenos Aires, which saw Madrid eliminated.

Istanbul presented first in front of the IOC, followed by Tokyo and then Madrid in an order decided by a draw two years ago.

Each city rolled out the big guns, with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe representing his capital city, his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan backing Istanbul, and Prince Felipe of Spain part of Madrid’s official presentation.

IOC members then heard a report from an internal Evaluation Commission formed of IOC members and Olympic experts, before initial voting began.

CIDI calls on Canadians to take a stand

(NEWSCANADA)  BUSINESS WATCH  - The Canadian Institute of Diversity and Inclusion (CIDI) is calling for Canada to boycott the 2014 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games due to the recent legislation banning the “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations”.  The law imposes fines and jail time for an LGBT person or their straight allies, who speak out in support of LGBT rights.

“Human rights must come above all,” Michael Bach, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Canadian Institute for Diversity and Inclusion. “Any country that participates in these games is, by their action, complicit in human rights abuses that are taking place in Russia today. If a country cannot ensure the safety of their citizens and residents, they must boycott the games.”

CIDI’s position

Canadians have protections under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms that prohibits discrimination at work based on, among other things, sexual orientation and gender. The Olympic and Paralympic games are considered a workplace for athletes, coaches, support staff, and officiates who are due to participate. However, the Canadian government cannot ensure the safety of its citizens or guarantee they will not be discriminated against while attending or participating in the games.

The boycott

CIDI does not anticipate that the boycott will motivate the Russian government to change its position on the human rights of LGBT citizens, tourists and their allies. What it will do is the following:

  1. Ensure that Canadian citizens and residents that are attending or participating in the 2014 Olympic and Paralympic games in Sochi are not subject to harassment, violence, criminalization and fines as a consequence of being LGBT or an ally of the LGBT community.
  2. Send a clear message to Russia and other countries that do not respect the human rights of LGBT people, that there is a financial impact for this type of abuse.
  3. Solidify Canada’s commitment to human rights and sends a message to the world that Canada is a country that encourages dialogue and differences of opinion, provided that all people are treated equally.

 

“The decision to support a boycott does not come easily,” said Michael Bach. “We recognize the monumental effort that is takes for an athlete to qualify and participate in the Olympics or Paralympics.”

Take action now

Visit saynotosochi.ca and click on the Be Heard link at the top of the page to send a letter to all Canadian members of Parliament, Senators, and the Presidents and CEOs of the Canadian Olympic Committee and the Canadian Paralympic Committee. By sending your message and supporting the boycott you are showing that you prioritize the safety of Canadians and the human rights of all people above all else.
