As we know the Unreal Engine was one of the best engines for making games, it has been used in almost all major AAA titles and has really set the bar for graphics, lighting, physics and all the other lovely stuff that makes our games look and feel like real life! I remember back in the day when Gears of War 2 was being revealed and they showed off the next generation of Unreal Software and they did this by shooting a cube of meat over and over within the GoW game….this blew our minds! And now here we are, Unreal Engine 4 and an unbelievably well made video showing off the sheer power of this new engine. (more…)

This is a new mini series I’ll be trying to do every now and again, this series will not be limited to film, there will be film, gaming and TVs shows thrown into the mixture just to make it that much more interesting.

These “Top X” videos will be uploaded onto Akroview’s YouTube channel, which you can find here. They will then be uploaded to Akroview.com. (more…)

Nowadays we live in a  world where everything is digital now, books can be read online, kindles are the new fashion accessory, movies can be streamed online and even the majority of the TV shows that people watch seemed to be streamed from their laptop on their TV. This actually prompted a bill to be passed here in Ireland to tax the people if they owned an electronic device that could have access to the internet and could stream tv shows, since it was costing the government because people didn’t need to buy a TV license to watch their shows on the TV. This didn’t last very long, there was outrage because this affected people that didn’t own a TV too.They had all the entertainment they needed either sitting on their lap or hiding away in their pocket.

This new realm of digital purchasing has been especially prevalent in the gaming world with almost all of the standard edition of games being bought on online marketplaces and through stores built into the consoles themselves. Although this is a handy and easy way to get gamers their games it doesn’t have the same feeling of waiting outside a games store for a midnight launch, call me old fashioned but I still love the excitement of that. (Yes I know..NEEEERRRRDDDD!!!)
