VR painting in 3D—like this image of WoW’s Illidan Stormrage—is black magic, and no amount of demos or explanations will convince me otherwise.
This makes perfect sense.
Sixteen characters made the cut for Street Fighter V, but they weren’t the only ones designed for the game. Capcom have shared some sketches of fighters who were created but failed to make the finished product, and yeah, it’s pretty easy seeing why most of them died where they did.
A bloodied wolf man birthing an unspeakable thing. The top half of a schoolgirl clawing her way across a marble floor. A soldier licking his lover’s eyeball.

It’s May, which means it’s time for the annual Famicase exhibition, a showcase put on by Japanese game store Meteor that asks artists from around the world to design beautiful cartridges for fake video games. Which end up looking good enough for us to want them to be real video games.
Fro Design Company have released a second series of old-timey travel posters based on Street Fighter II stages. They’re great!
Childhood classics aren’t the only games with fan-made re-imaginations in Unreal Engine 4. Newer ones can get one too every now and then. And Bloodborne is a fantastic-looking game that deserves an homage like this.
