News Comments > Unreal Engine 4 Tools Video

Yeah jdreyer that's the plan.

I am doing my best to keep it optimized and the requirements low so that people could use their HTPC with some controllers plugged in to play on the sofa with their kids or have the choice to use their desktop.

Soon as I have my trailer, I'll nicely ask the Mr.Blue to post it. =) He's like the best you know (grovel grovel)

Nice NewMaxx, it's hard work hey? You think, yeah I'll make a game... then you have to follow it up with the hard work =D Good luck! And if you want to chat about UE4 down the track, never hesitate to drop me a line =) Hopefully by then I'll have a firm grasp of it.

Got my artist making some nice art for a gameplay prototype/proof of concept scene at the moment. Trying to finish my planned games in Unity first, then it'll be fun times with Unreal 4.

Hopefully I can show you guys here some fun stuff using UE4 =)

The engine is a bit rough around the edges, but we got some old artwork in for a test and the effects look great, and with the right lighting setups it can really improve the look and feel of average artwork. So I guess with 4k-8k textures it'll look amazing!

I for one am just amazed they actually made an Australian server... first time Blizzard has done this.... ever!

Mmm... now if they could get some Aus Wow servers (not oceanic time servers), I might actually give it a go =)

Got to say, I kind of look forward to the Ubuntu phones.

The idea of a Linux phone just catches my interest, especially if they can pull off the plug into the monitor/attach with devices and run linux desktop apps.

I only use Ubuntu in a VM state at the moment for testing be it a server or dev builds.

Ahh the old days when a company would release things called Demos before the release, and did Test versions if they needed... Free versions limited parts and released even before the Demos (Q/Q2/Q3 test ftw!).

I love the idea of Dayz/Rust, but I can't deal with their current development states.

Excellent role for John if that is the case. His work as always been great for showing off what can be done, sometimes I wish he could find a game designer who could drive his engines how he expects it will work but at the very least he can create tech demos to show case how he has helped shaped the hardware.

Also, he has always appeared to want to help the community move forward by using his influence on hardware (birth of 3d accelerators for example). While not everybody would agree with his choices, its still great to see somebody put the effort in.

Good luck to John Carmack and the Oculus team, hopefully the tech will help change the way people interact with computers.

I am really looking forward to these, assuming they do a decent job with build quality.

Going to be great for staying fit, and having a good time. I might even buy 2 just to invite my friends over to do battle. The shoes part will make things interesting though, maybe they can do some sort of adapter for attaching to regular shoes... which I am sure they are already considering.

It is interesting that ASUS is dropping the RT tablets. I recently purchased a Vivo Smart Tab with the full Windows 8 on it for the in laws and it suits them perfectly. It uses all their old software and they don't mind the tabs on a tablet.

The specs are a bit low... but for the price is was decent, and when hooked upto a bluetooth mouse + keyboard it's just another PC.

The RT versions of things however, not so great. You can't just install normal windows software.. you're stuck with what is in their app store (there are some workarounds, but not really worth it). They are really a late to the market iPad/Nexus.

Glad Asus have noticed and ditched it, now if only MS realised the same thing...

Seems like the Wii U needs to ditch the controller, and just start selling them cheaper with the Wii controller and a normal gamepad. Then worry about making their new games (the system sellers, mario etc..).

I doubt they will, the idea was novel but in reality it doesn't appear people want it.

Be smart Nintendo! Drop the fake tablet, release some normal controllers, and do the best with the hardware you have while making a profit. It is the smart business decision.

The 600% number is just out of nowhere, but, it is possible for AI to be improved simply by offloading processing of previous races against thousands of players to the servers.

Just means they get to externally crunch mass amounts of data to improve the AI, then send the information back to the console. It's not going to be amazing, but the AI will learn from many players at once, and share its data.

Then again, it all depends how they use the data =)

Tencent Holdings sure is out there getting their hands into the gaming companies. Epic games and Riot already being heavily invested by them.

Be interesting to watch them over time, especially when they expect returns.

Hopefully it will improve things for the big pipes, the consumer end is still all over the place world wide.

Australia has its NBN fibre network going in at the moment, but its slow to roll out and it's being run by the government. Which means at any time the politicians decide they don't want to they will stop rolling it out (we have a election coming up and this is a point of issue).

At the moment I'm on a top tier plan of $100aud (I don't pay this, I have a discount) for 500gig cap (up and down counted) at speeds of 100mbit down 2.4mbit up. The NBN ranges depending on company and their uploads/caps are much better but not in my area.

To think when I was younger I always wanted a faster connection, and now world wide I have a very good connection. Problem now is most content provides can't keep up. Annoys me to no end when a 1080p stream lags from one provider, yet I can have 10 open from another.

So with that in mind, not only do the consumer ends need to keep pace, but so does the content side. Hopefully newer techs such as that one helps them get some nice phat pipes up and running =)

Edit: NBN Fibre network, although a NBN Fire network could be interesting

There is a post on reddit about the fact the are getting the "leaked" image from some kid who made it for a joke.

It started on the smaller sites, and now the big ones are reporting it. They have all mostly added a Update stating that it's a mockup by some random but it was amusing to watch it blow up into "This is news!!"

What the hell is a zinester... even my spell check says that it isn't a word.

Let's make up words to give ourselves a label and make ourselves relevant. Yay! Hey wait, it appears to come from that "woman" who can't research very well and gave herself another label as a "pop-culture critic".

I'll leave the academics to the labels and just enjoy the games (what I decide is a game).

Here in Oz (damned wizards) we can now get our naughty games... well some. It's a slow process and many have to be reclassified so that will take awhile. Even then, many won't bother as their games will be too old.

My Left 4 Dead 2 is still bloodless =( But at least I can get the new Mortal Kombat.... =\
