Custom CryEngine 3 Environments Are The Best

CryEngine’s various iterations are great for 3D art, as we’ve seen timeandtimeagain. And by god, this one’s just beautiful.

Sadly, 'Realistic Minecraft' Is Not A Real Game

Instead, it’s a series of 3D-animated shorts showing what Minecraft could be if it was, well, not more “realistic” per se, but rather more smooth and rounded around the edges.

Tiny People Tripping Over Each Other

My favourite videos on the internet are the ones that are difficult to explain. “Why am I watching this? What makes this good?” This video of tiny 3D people falling down is one of those special videos.

Dark Magic Brings Video Game Weapons Into The Real World

Because video game items are made using 3D models, it turns out it’s not that hard to rip them out of a game and get them working with a 3D printer. And, from there, bring something that previously only existed on the screen into the real world.

If I Moved To Space, This Is Where I'd Live

I don’t think I have the brains to become a terraforming scientist though. I’d just tag along and look out windows all day.

I Wish Video Games Had High-Speed Gesture Tech Like This

The Ishikawa Watanabe Laboratory at the University of Tokyo recently showed off its very cool 3D gesture tech. Using high-speed camera, the system is able to track hand movements at 500 frames per second.

How The Oculus Rift Can Turn You Into A Controller

Playing with the Oculus Rift is better with friends. You can get your head chopped off, or use them as your personal “gaming chair”. The idea is simple: the player with the headset on enjoys the game, like this hang gliding simulator, while the others lift, tilt and push the player, following on-screen instructions.

Suddenly, Mewtwo Is The Most Badass Pokémon Of All

That is one spectacular, buffed up Mewtwo sculpture, like something out of the XCOM games, or a live action Pokémon movie — not one of the cartoony monsters from a Nintendo game.

Taking A Chalk Yoshi Into The Streets Is No Laughing Matter

Drawing a realistic 3D Yoshi from Mario Kart with chalk is one thing, but the way the fine folks at the AweMeChannel animated and put him into a real-life street scene is quite spectacular.
