Speckie for Windows 8
A free real-time spell checker for IE

Speckie is an easy-to-use and very helpful real-time spell checker for Internet Explorer.

The program works in any regular web page text box. Just start typing, and if you mis-spell a word and you should see a red line immediately appear beneath it, Word-style. Right-click the highlighted error for a list of possible alternatives, choose the one you need, and Speckie will replace the original text accordingly.

This seems like it would always be useful to us, but if you want to turn off spell checking temporarily for some reason, then just right-clicking the text box and clearing the "Check spelling" option will make it happen.

And another right-click option, Dictionaries, lets you replace the default US English dictionary with a number of downloadable alternatives: British and Australian English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Spanish and more (the Speckie site has the full list).

The program also has a few configuration options available (click Tools > Speckie Options). You may want to select "Enable spell check in single line edit fields", for instance, as this is turned off by default. And if you don't like the default wavy red line to highlight errors, then that's not a problem, you can quickly choose a different tag style and colour here.

Note that this is a specific version for Windows 8.

Verdict:

An easy way to highlight and fix spelling mistakes, just as soon as they happen

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
