gBurner Virtual Drive 3.7
Create up to 16 virtual CD/ DVD/ Blu-ray drives

GBurner Virtual Drive is a free utility for creating and managing virtual CD/ DVD drives.

The program enables you to equip your PC with up to 16 virtual drives, each of which may be used to mount a CD or DVD image. (And apparently Blu-ray images, too, although the gBurner website doesn't claim Blu-ray support.) This means you'll always have access to the disc contents, with risking any damage to the physical media - and the developers suggest performance may be as much as 200x faster, too.

GBurner Virtual Drive installs easily and without incident, and by default adds a single virtual drive to your system. Any time you want to use this, right-click the gBurner system tray icon, select "Mount image file...", choose your disc image and it'll immediately be accessible from Explorer.

If you'd like to add more drives, right-click the system tray icon and select "Set Number of Drives". Click Options > Automount to automatically reload the images when your PC boots. And if you need to define exactly which drive letter each virtual drive uses on your system, click Options > Configuration > Edit and set everything up as you'd like.

There's nothing too advanced here. No shell integration, no command line interface, no tools for creating and managing disc images in the first place. DAEMON Tools Lite, or perhaps IMDISK Toolkit have much more power.

GBurner Virtual Drive has the core functionality you need, though. It's easy to use, and supports the following image types:
 
ISO, GBI / GBP (gBurner), DAA (PowerISO), NRG (Nero), MDF / MDS (Alcohol), BIN / CUE (CDRWin), UIF (MagicISO), ISZ (UltraISO), ASHDISC (Ashampoo), DMG (Apple Mac), GI (RecordNow), BWI / B5I (BlindWrite), IMG (CloneCD), CDI (DiscJugger), PDI (InstantCopy), NCD (NTI CD-Maker), LCD (CDSpace), CIF (Easy CD/DVD Creator), P01 (Gear), PXI (PlexTools), C2D (WinOnCD), FCD (Virtual CD-ROM), VCD (Virtual Drive Image Files)

Verdict:

There are no frills or extras here, but gBurner Virtual Drive is still a likeable virtual CD/ DVD drive creator with support for a good range of image formats.

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

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."
