I have being working in the AAA industry for tha last 3 years and the crunch is what is forcing me to find something else to do in life even if I love 3d. Some places may be more respectful with their employees but in my experience the crunch is even calculated in advance cause they know the workers will accept that. Some people is very passionate and don´t mind to do it and that is fine but a lot of people have families and they want to build a healthy environment with them or other goals outside the working ours. Not to mention non-payed overtime and other abuses I faced. Hope this industry fixs this problem.
Those tilesets are sexy. Seeing new tilesets is like getting introduced to a new lego set.
At Oculus Connect 2, Epic Games revealed Bullet Train, an exciting and brand new VR experience that incorporates Oculus Touch Controls.
It was in Hollywood at Oculus Connect 2 that Epic Games Founder and CEO Tim Sweeney revealed Bullet Train, a new VR experience for the Oculus Rift that throws you right into the middle of the chaotic action, as Epic is traditionally known for doing.
You will play the role of an agent that is in the undergoing an infiltration simulation set inside a modern train station. Use teleportation, time manipulation, and close-quarters combat to silence forces that resist you. Using the Oculus Touch controller for locomotion, you can physically interact with weapons such as guns, grenades, and missiles, even feeling them through haptic feedback. On top of that, during bullet time you can grab bullets and missiles out of the air and throw them back at your enemies.
On another note, in Tim Sweeney’s blog he has stated that since the day Unreal Engine 4 was made available for free earlier in the year at GDC, a million new developers have jumped on to use Unreal Engine to create some amazing new VR experiences. The future for VR is looking very bright.
