VTchromizer 1.5
Scan files for malware before they're downloaded (Chrome)

VTchromizer is a Chrome add-on which integrates VirusTotal scanning options into the browser, enabling you to check any file or URL for malware with one or two clicks.

If you're unsure about a particular link then you can right-click it and select "Scan with VirusTotal". This immediately runs a regular VirusTotal URL check, displaying a detailed site safety report in just a few seconds.

A normally safe site might occasionally host a dangerous file, of course, but VTchromizer has that covered, too. Right-click the link to any file, select "Scan with VirusTotal", and in a moment you're reading the verdict - without having to download the file first.

VTchromizer also adds a button to Chrome's toolbar. Clicking this produces a pop-up search box where you can run VirusTotal searches on hashes, links, tags and more. There's a link to run a scan on the current site, and if you still have questions, another which takes you straight to the VirusTotal site.

Verdict:

VTchromizer's smart Chrome integration makes it easy to run VirusTotal file or URL scans on demand, while also taking the absolute minimum of screen real estate.

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
