NexusImage 1.1.3.992
An interesting portable image viewer with some unusual extras

NexusImage is a lightweight, portable and easy-to-use image viewer.

Launch the program and you can browse straight to an image in the folder you'd like to view. At this point we weren't too impressed; file format support here is limited (jpg, png, bmp, gif, ico, tiff, wmf, emf, jp2, j2k), and there's no Explorer-like thumbnail browser. Once you've chosen an image, any other pictures in the same folder are displayed in a scrollable strip on the right-hand side of the screen, but this is only really useful when browsing folders with small numbers of images.

Get past these issues, though, and NexusImage does have a few points in its favour. The program can rotate and zoom in on a particular image, for instance, but a "smooth stretch" setting helps to minimise any pixellation or image artefacts as it works, so your pictures look better even at the highest magnifications.

Open the program's Exif window and you'll be able to view the metadata of each image as it's displayed.

There's an option to set the current image as your desktop background. You can add a caption to an image to help you remember something about it (this doesn't affect the picture itself, it's just for use in NexusImage). And there are shortcut keys for everything, so once you've mastered these then the program is very quick and easy to use.

Version 1.1.3.992 brings:

•Improved: Keyborad Shortcuts
 Previous Image: Down or Right arrow
 Next Image: Up or Left arrow
 Zoom In: + or Z
 Zoom Out: - or Shift + Z

•Added: Show in Explorer
•Added: Flip Horizontal/Vertical
•Added: Edit with function. You can add editors and open an image you are viewing with one of those editors.
 Shift + Click an editor if you want to edit or delete an editor.
•Added: Show/Hide StatusBar function. You can view images without titlebar and statusbar.
•Improved: Menu structure changed.

Verdict:

NexusImage can't compete with the "do everything" image viewers; if you need support for hundreds of file formats and an industry-strength thumbnail browser then you should probably look elsewhere. The program does just fine for more basic purposes, though - it's lightweight, portable, looks good and has some convenient bonus features

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
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
