Project Awakened shows off Unreal Engine 4


1:45 PM on 03.01.2013



In an attempt to drum up more interest for the Project Awakened Kickstarter, Phosphor Games has released an Unreal Engine 4 tech demonstration. The campaign ends in four days and has managed to pull in over $200,000 which is, regrettably, less than half of the funding goal. It's going to take something special for this to make it.

In a lot of ways, it looks like a dream superhero game. Awakened is ambitious -- but perhaps to a fault. That's my best guess as to why this Kickstarter drive hasn't caught on. It's a hard thing to grasp, conceptually, given how much is being done with this game. I bet if it were out -- as in, right this moment -- Awakened could build a monstrous following; it's just getting there that's the issue.

Do watch the video, though. The part where the guy's hand split in half really caught me off guard.

Here are some things Bill Platt could have purchased instead of amiibo

A few weeks ago the staff talked about how we feel about amiibo. The consensus is that they are neat little Nintendo figures that don't have amazing functionality but they don't break the bank. One anomaly showed up in the di...more

Resident Evil HD causes night terrors, sandwiches

I had a real weird night with Resident Evil HD. It's continuing as I look for screens to use as thumbnail images and stumble upon nude, pregnant Jill mods for Resident Evil 4. And here I thought I was making questionable use of my time.more
