    E3 2017: Microsoft

    Posted on Jun 16, 2017 3:31:53 PM by Austin Lee in Blogs, in gaming, in Geeky Stuff, in Microsoft, in multiplayer, in new releases, in E3 2017, in Xbox One

    Earlier this week, Microsoft announced a wide array of exciting soon-to-be-released goodies. For one, the amount of games announced and hyped up is staggering. Speaking of games, all Original Xbox games are available for play on the Xbox One! Personally, I was a fan of the PS2 back in the day, but this is extremely exciting because that just broadens the amount of games that are made available to the player-base. Finally, the new Xbox One X has been announced. Although plenty of memes came along with the release of the new console, it’s the most powerful console to date. I’m extremely excited for the future of Microsoft and what they’re going to release.

    Windows 10 - Checklist (for Artists)

    Posted on Sep 4, 2015 10:28:51 AM by admin in Blogs, in digital art, in fresh install, in Microsoft, in upgrading, in video games, in checklist, in software, in Windows, in Windows 10

    Trial and error is what makes a man. It's problem solving 101. Let me tell you something though, whenever "error" happens it's never very pretty, so I wanted to share some wisdom that I learned recently with my Windows 10 Upgrade experience. (I'm also going to use boat analogies because I'm from Colorado and don't get enough of them in my life.)

    The Future of Windows

    Windows 10 will likely be one of the most exciting parts of late 2015, so to follow up all of my Valve 2015 excitement I figured it would be fun to talk about some of the new features coming to Windows 10 and some of the features that I'd personally love to see.

    So there was a lot that happened at GDC this year. DirectX and Vulkan 3D APIs that I talked about in the last post just scratch the surface. Among everything that happened at GDC, Valve arguably had the most extensive and most industry-changing announcements. This blog post on the Valve website goes over most of the stuff that they announced in more detail, and the Steam Universe website has plenty of awesome info about each product as well as some sweet pictures that I'll post below.

    Vulkan and DX12: The Future of Graphics

    Posted on Mar 24, 2015 2:52:22 PM by admin in Advancing Computer Science, in Blogs, in DirectX, in DirectX 12, in Frostbite engine, in game design degree, in game engine, in Game Programming, in gaming, in Geeky Stuff, in Microsoft, in multi-threading, in multicore cpu, in technology college, in Unreal 4, in video games, in computer science degree, in Dota 2, in Epic Games, in Game Art & Animation, in Game Design, in Game Development, in programming, in Source 2, in Valve Software, in visual, in Vulkan, in Windows 10

    Originally this post was gonna be me spazzing out about more video games, but right as I created a blank post I ran into a tweet about DirectX 12. DirectX has been around for AGES and it's what most game companies use to actually get their games running in 3D on PC with the Direct3D Drivers, so hearing new information about DirectX is basically hearing new information about the future of PC gaming!
