Fans Create Mass Effect Mod for Starbound
A fan-made mod featuring elements from the Mass Effect universe has been released for Chucklefish Games’ resource-gathering, action-platformer Starbound.
The mod, created by Team SMEE, includes Asari and Turian character classes, Biotic Powers, replaces your ship with the Normandy SR-1, and features music and sounds from the Mass Effect series. Also promised in the mod’s next update are Element-0, the Mako transport, and new armor upgrades.
You can find the mod and any subsequent updates here on the game’s forum.
FTL: Advanced Edition, iPad Version Announced
Subset Games announced today that early next year they will be releasing a free expansion to 2012’s spaceship-management roguelike, FTL: Faster Than Light, as well as an iPad version of the title.
The expansion promises to include, “new enemies, drones, augments, systems, enemies, and more.” As the above trailer notes, part of the “more” will be all-new music and story content for the game.
The iPad version of the game is promised to include the content of both FTL: Faster Than Light, as well as the new content from the Advanced Edition expansion. Subset Games noted that they were looking into bringing FTL to other tablet devices, but would not make any promises. They also confirmed that there will be no mobile versions of FTL coming.
Expect FTL: Advanced Edition to launch on Windows, Mac, Linux, and iPad in early 2014.
Steam promises that this controller will work with every game on Steam, even ones without controller support. They say they fool the game into thinking it’s a mouse and keyboard.
Dual circular trackpads and touchscreen makes the controller very unique (albeit fairly ugly) but Steam promises high resolution precision to make it easy for both PC and console users to get used to.
As we’ve been working on bringing Steam to the living room, we’ve come to the conclusion that the environment best suited to delivering value to customers is an operating system built around Steam itself. SteamOS combines the rock-solid architecture of Linux with a gaming experience built for the big screen. It will be available soon as a free stand-alone operating system for living room machines.
Steam is teasing 3 new announcements. The first one is going to happen tomorrow it seems. It’s pretty obvious that it’s related to the Steambox but the more exciting news is now we know Gabe can actually count to three.
