    Blender, Facebook State-of-the-Art Human-Like Chatbot, Now Open Source

    There's already an open source program named "Blender" I really wish companies would stop using names that are either already in use or are just plain generic as hell. Feels like an attempt to redefine the word for trademark or other bullshit reasons, or just plain ignorance. "Mixer" is another...

    Unreal Engine 5 Revealed! Running real time on Playstation 5

    Yea, it's also related to how levels are structured, the visibility/occlusion methods (or VIS in source and other engines), you basically set areas of the world which you see before others, and that data gets stored in a way so that it's retrieved in the most optimal way. They do this when...

    Unreal Engine 5 Revealed! Running real time on Playstation 5

    Unreal Engine 5 Revealed! Running real time on Playstation 5

    That's fine if you didn't think Unreal Tournament 3 looked like washed out shit compared to all the tech demos leading up to it... it's just a warning these things don't always pan out the way they are presented.

    Unreal Engine 5 Revealed! Running real time on Playstation 5

    not to be a debbie downer, but just remember the Unreal 3 demo and how impressive it looked... and how crap the final game ended up looking... still, it's great to see the advancement and potential here. I also wish "triangles" would soon go away and be replaced by voxels, for truly "3D"...

    This Witcher 3 mod raises the graphics to a new level of realism

    Can't wait to see games add dirt/grime where objects meet, as that is currently one of the biggest things holding them back from photorealism. You can do this with some combination of procedural texture/decals and ambient occlusion, but better with some "simple" AI so it doesn't really come at...

    TSMC now sinking asets into developing 2nm node!

    Quantum is now a thing, will just take some time before a larger group become enthuised by it, as it'll require forming new habits on how we design software and probably new programming languages as well. If you are new to application development, it might be cool to look into it as you'll...

    Final Fantasy VII Remake

    some were pretty heavy on character development, so much so I didn't realize they were optional at the time. There are more obvious side-quests and mini games which I didn't care for but were at least more meaningful and varied than the littering of mindless fetch quests we see in more modern RPGs
