Predicting the level of success enjoyed by PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, aka PUBG, would have been very tough ahead of its launch.

The attackers either want to fetch information for their financial gain, or just to simply cause havoc. In this latest case involving Epic Games' forums, it appears to be the latter. In a new blog post, Epic... Read more...
Before its release in April 1998, it was clear that Unreal would make a big impact on the PC gaming market.

Around this period of time, PC graphics were improving at such a rapid rate, that... Read more...
When we learned earlier this week that Microsoft would be bringing Forza Motorsport to Windows, it was hard to not feel excited.

Sure, on some levels, it's arguably sacrilegious to use a popular and powerful 3D game engine to create a Flappy Bird clone.

It's not uncommon to see a new game title come out that touts that the "best" experience will be on either AMD's or NVIDIA's (or Intel's in rarer cases) GPUs, but it is uncommon to see a game engine as a whole being given the nod by its developer to one or the other. In this case, the engine is Unreal Engine 4, and it... Read more...
