RealPlayer 16.0.3
Download, play, transfer, burn and share your media with this all-in-one media manager

RealPlayer 16 is a new version of the veteran media player, now enhanced with powerful features that make it even easier to transport and share your media.

There's simplified support for transferring files to and from many portable devices, for instance: the iPod, iPhone or iPad, your BlackBerry, MP3 player, Android or many other smart phones. You can now transfer music, video or pictures, too. And the system will sync playlists between your devices and the RealPlayer library, so everything stays up to-date.

You get more options for handling digital photos. Select a few images and the program can display them as a slideshow. Spotted a problem? An Edit option will open them in your default image editor. And when you're happy, you can share them on Facebook in a couple of clicks.

It's easy to access your friend's Facebook videos from within the interface, too. And you can now bookmark videos for reference later. If you're playing a movie and realise you don't have time to view it all, just hover your mouse cursor over the video, choose the "Bookmark" option, and it'll be saved for one-click access at some later date.

Another bonus this time is Toolbar Mode, now available in the free player. If you think RealPlayer's admittedly rather bulky interface is taking up too much real estate, click View > Toolbar Mode (or just press F8). The player will shrink to the minimum possible size, while your playback and other essential controls are collapsed to a toolbar at the bottom of the screen.

And of course RealPlayer 16 has all the features it's managed to accumulate in previous versions, so for instance you can play music, videos, CDs or DVDs; organise your media collection; trim audio and video files; burn your files to CDs or DVDs, upload videos to YouTube, and more.

Verdict:

It's not the most significant of upgrades, but RealPlayer 16's ability to bookmark videos should help you to better manage your movie watching.

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
