Kirby in Unreal photo

Mario, but completely covered in fur thanks to Unreal 4

Mario looks shiny and new in Unreal 4

This fan-made mod of Mario in Unreal Engine 4 looks fantastic, and makes me want another 3D Super Mario game stat. I'm actually really surprised that Nintendo didn't announce at least some DLC for Super Mario 3D World at E3, or e...

Epic Games UK set up to work on Unreal Engine 4

Unreal Tournament footage: 'We have a game now'

I came in expecting little from this latest Unreal Tournament footage considering how not far along the game was in the last video, but this one is much more worthy of your time. Movement mechanics, levels, weapons, and team deathmatch are...


How dumb will Heihachi's hair look running on Unreal 4?
