Unreal Engine 4 (UE4)

"Here’s what the Unreal guys are hoping will singe the eyeballs of executives, hardware engineers, and game developers when they see it at GDC: A heavily armored demon knight sits frozen to his throne in a ruined mountain fortress. As he awakens, lava begins to flow around him and flames engulf the world. A magma vent spews a column of smoke and smoldering embers. He stands, sending up showers of sparks that dance, fall out of focus, and fade into ash. The knight hefts a massive hammer that glows with an inner fire. As he stalks down an empty corridor, a deep rumble sounds and masonry falls from the ceiling—this is no mountain but a volcano on the verge of eruption. When the knight steps outside, we see a range of snow-capped peaks in the far-off distance, rendered in stunning clarity. Behind him the volcano belches black smoke, while burning embers mix with swirling snowflakes." - Sounds good. Notes from the currently unreleased Unreal Engine 4 (UE4).

Humor: Interesting the UPs and DOWNs of life

Humor: Interesting the UPs and DOWNs of life. You want to hit UP a woman so you can go DOWN on her. You want to get UP inside her by going DOWN on her. Make her feel UP by pinning her DOWN. A guy goes UP and a woman goes DOWN. You pay UP and it goes DOWN. Sex, it’s UP, DOWN, UP DOWN. O-o-oh life ;-)
