Turbo Announces Upcoming Game Super Senso

Dec 12, 2015

Turbo Studios has just announced upcoming game Super Senso, a title based on a Nintendo classic.

Inspired by the Nintendo classic Advance Wars, Super Senso pits player versus player in fast-paced matches on vivid 3D battlefields to compete for rare rewards, exclusive content and global supremacy. Players collect and unleash massive, customized mechs on their enemies while amassing unstoppable, smash-up armies of zombie soldiers, tanks, ninjas, weaponized dinosaurs, UFOs and much more. Outsmart, outplay and obliterate opponents in PvP battles of epic proportions!

Super Senso is targeted squarely at the rapidly evolving, hardcore mobile games community, and TURBO has already enlisted players from prominent esports teams to collaborate on game development and post-launch tournament activities. Flying in the face of prevailing trends, Super Senso sticks to a simple, pro-player philosophy: free-to-play does NOT need to mean pay-to-win. Microtransactions will afford players with multiple choices for unlocking new content, as well as cosmetic personalization options, but TURBO’s vision is to create a balanced, play-to-win experience for its users.

The game will be free-to-play and is slated to be released in early 2016; for folks who just can’t wait to get a taste, the public beta can be signed up for HERE.

Opera Mobile 12.1 Releases, But WebKit Support is Not Here Yet

Opera Mobile 12.1 Releases, But WebKit Support is Not Here Yet

Oct 9, 2012

Opera has released version 12.1 of the Opera Mobile browser for Android. While they’ve been known for the data-saving Opera Mini, this is a full-fledged version of the Opera browser that renders pages on the device itself, though the remote-rendering “turbo” mode is available here. One of the big new features is under the hood, as the SPDY technology for faster page rendering is now supported by the browser. Websites including Twitter and Gmail use this SPDY protocol. Other new features include WebSockets support, and improved CSS and HTML5 compatibility for better user experience.

Note that this is not the version of Opera that will supports the -webkit CSS prefix. For those not in the know, this is a controversial decision as it is furthering the practice of browsers just essentially pronouncing themselves as a WebKit browser, with WebKit being the underlying technology behind Chrome and Safari browsers, for example. Opera doesn’t necessarily use WebKit, but has support for its prefix, which could bring up errors for sites that are optimized for Opera but may not have their WebKit optimizations work properly in Opera. Still, the browser may need this to stay competitive as a real alternative choice.
