TubeBox

YouTube is a great source of music and videos, but if you want to listen to or watch anything you’re going to need an internet connection. If you stumble across something you would like to watch time and time again, TubeBox can be used to download anything you would like to keep and even convert files between formats. YouTube is far from being the only supported streaming service, as you can also use TubeBox in conjunction with Metacafe, DailyMotion and much more.

Unlike some video downloading tools, TubeBox does not require you to use a web browser – it is a standalone program that takes care of everything for you. The search tool can be used to track down what you are looking for, and the drop down menu enables you to choose from one of the many supported sites. If you’re interested in quality, you can limit search results to HD video or even only 3D files.

A preview window lets you check the videos before you download them and a simple series of buttons can be used to download the video in its native format or just rip the audio to an MP3 file. If you intend to watch the video on a smaller screen device, there is little point downloading the full resolution version of a video. TubeBox includes a conversion tool that enables you to optimize footage for playback on different devices.

There are a couple of issues with the program. Large portions of the installer are in German which does not inspire confidence and then there is the issue of the Babylon toolbar. If you have progressed through the installer and started to filter out the German, it’s all too easy to accidentally install this. Add to this the TwitTube addon, a coupon program, and a music app, there is scope for all manner of unwanted software to find its way on your hard drive.

Verdict:

Impressively simple to use, this is a great alternative to browser based download tools, but you need to take care with the unwanted extras.

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
