Video: You won’t believe that this apartment was built in a video game engine

About a month ago, we stumbled upon one of the most frighteningly realistic digital creations we have ever seen in the form of a 3D-modeled Parisian apartment. This stunning Unreal Engine 4 creation was just the tip of the iceberg though, as more artists have since built their own hyperrealistic environments, including Unreal Engine forums user blessod.

Hilarious video shows what House of Cards would look like as an 8-bit NES game

If you have any plans this upcoming weekend, you might want to cancel them. This coming Friday, the third season of House of Cards will premiere on Netflix and it’s a good bet that binge watching will be the name of the game for a good number of Frank Underwood fans over the weekend.

Video: See how stunning video games will look in the not-too-distant future

We’re constantly surprised by the incredible worlds that game developers are able to create, but we’re never satisfied with the visuals for very long. Where Half-Life 2 once shocked a generation of gamers, it can’t even begin to stand up to many of the independent games being released in 2015.

Even the latest AAA releases aren’t leaps and bounds over what we saw at the end of the PS3 and Xbox 360 life cycles, but Unreal Engine 4 has the potential to change everything. More →

2015 is the year that we stop preordering video games once and for all

2014 had so much potential.

Watch Dogs was going to change the face of gaming as we knew it. Destiny was going to bring MMO conventions to the console in the most incredible mash-up of the generation. Assassin’s Creed Unity was going to revitalize one of the most popular franchises of the past decade.

The 10 best video games of 2014

The first full year of the new generation is coming to a close. After much deliberation, I’ve settled on the ten games that stood out above all of the rest. These were the games that delighted me in 2014 — the games that I kept returning to, the ones I kept thinking about even after I’d put them back on the shelf.

I didn’t have a chance to play every game released this year, so if your favorite game didn’t make this list, it’s probably not because I hated it — I just didn’t get around to playing it.
