Sometimes grabbing a good still from a video is hard. Other times it's loads of fun.
I just wrote a post about a video Bobak Ferdowsi did to encourage young people to pursue engineering. The video, and Ferdowsi, are really inspiring. That said, when I went to grab a still from the video to use as a cover image I kept finding silly faces. Take a look.Read More
It all sort of unfolded like a George R.R. Martin novel, except the bill was the only thing that died.
Did you miss last night's monumental Texas state senate filibuster debacle? Because the Internet didn't. Over 160,000 people tuned into a single Youtube livestream to watch the debacle that raged on in the Texas senate over a bill that would have wreaked havoc on abortion centers and reproductive health clinics in the state. Of course, that didn't stop GOP Senators from attempting to manipulate the senate record into reflecting the exact opposite of what actually happened. Silly senators. Don't you know by now that you can't pull one over on the Internet? And that those who tried will be publicly lashed for their troubles? Well, I suppose you do now.Read More
Of all the video games that came out in 2011, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings was probably my far and away favorite. That's even with not having played the original game. It's just that good. So when developer CD Projekt Red announced the latest iteration, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, you can imagine how I felt. This excitement has only grown, and now they've released a whole mess of screenshots that show off what's supposedly the final Witcher title from the studio. Hit the jump to see them for yourself.Read More
Though it won't release until December 4th, and even then only for Xbox 360, Bethesda Game Studios is well aware that folks are eagerly awaiting the coming DLC for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Titled Dragonborn, Skyrim's newest outing will see players visit a setting previously explored in Morrowind: Solstheim. It's there that players will face the very first Dragonborn. If that doesn't sound exciting enough, hit the jump for a series of luscious screenshots for the upcoming DLC.Read More
Unreal Engine 3 is getting old. After six years of supporting games like the entire Mass Effect and Gears of War franchises, the engine is beginning to show its age a little bit. Soon, however, we'll have a glorious new Unreal Engine to drool over. Epic's new iteration promises to deliver a definitely next-gen-feeling experience, including features like particle physics that can handle millions of particles on screen at the same time. In short, it's going to be very pretty.Read More
Yesterday, news broke that the new installment in the Assassin's Creed series, Assassin's Creed 3 -- not to be confused with the actual third Assassin's Creed game that didn't actual employ the suffix of "3" -- would be set in the American Revolution. The Internet freaked out, because that's pretty darn cool (or terrible, depending on which way you freaked out regarding the news). Today, some screenshots have leaked into the wild, and show the still unidentified main character walking around a colony, as well as skulking around the wilderness. Check them out after the break, but hit the jump stealthily to stay in theme with the game.Read More
Game Informer has gotten its lucky, lucky hands on a batch of screenshots from Dragon Age II, which we learned last week is officially going to happen. Magazine subscribers have already been able to check the pics out in this month's issue, but two of them are now available online to people who are not dirty pirates. Thoughts?Read More
Creative Assembly is churning Total War games out at a serious clip! The upcoming Shogun 2: Total War represents the seventh entry in the series, which for those of you who don't know, blends grand, continent-wide military strategy with brutal, small-scale tactical battles where you can see individual little figures crushed by elephants, and blown apart by cannons, and so on. Anyway -- onto the screenshots!Read More
It seems someone has taken the Twitter mold and made something useful with it (or, at least, more useful). A new site called Dribbble is soon to open up to the public and allow developers to showcase the projects they're working on.
From website's official blog:
"Dribbble is show and tell for designers, developers and other creatives. Members share sneak peeks of their work as “shots” — small screenshots of the designs and applications they are working on. It’s also a place to talk design, give and receive feedback and iterate toward better work."
