So my historical costuming resources list from 2011 was less than a page long- I’m not saying that I’ve learned a lot in the past three years, but this list is now sitting pretty at a solid nine pages. Whew. And people wonder why I want to redo this damn series.

alpha-beta-gamer:

Alpha Sign-ups are now open for Fortnight, Epic’s new Unreal Engine 4 powered multiplayer game where you scavenge and fortify during the day and fight off zombie hordes during the night.

Fortnite has a big focus on building, combat, character customization and social interaction.  The day and night cycles mean that gameplay will have an interesting mixture of exploring, scavenging, building during daylight, then bunkering down during the night and fending off zombies as it switches to a Gears of War, Horde-mode style of gameplay.

The interesting cycle of gameplay styles, stylish visuals and the fact that this will be Epic’s first Unreal Engine 4 powered game all make Fortnite sound like a pretty tasty proposition, and a game that’s worth getting on at the ground floor.

Sign Up for the Alpha

Hunters, get your artisan tools ready, for we have a special request for you: design a weapon for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate!
All right, the last time something like this happened was for Monster Hunter Tri back in 2009 and we still enjoy the results to this date, so you can see the impact of this kind of contest here… but let’s clarify a few things before you start working on your entry:
What is this contest?We are asking you to design and name a weapon that could be featured in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate!
You entry must be based on one of the 14 weapon classes available in game: Sword & Shield, Dual Blades, Great Sword, Long Sword, Hammer, Hunting Horn, Lance, Gunlance, Switch Axe, Light Bowgun, Heavy Bowgun, Bow, Insect Glaive and Charge Blade; so make sure you label your entry accordingly. We’re only taking one entry per person, so think carefully about your choice.
To participate, just send your weapon name and design (illustration) as an email to contest@capcom.com with the subject line MH4U WEAPON DESIGN. Feel free to send in a little description to help contextualize your design, but please keep it under 100 words. Note: weapon description is NOT a requirement.

WAIT A MINUTE! This is a pretty big contest, so we have a strict set of TERMS & CONDITIONS. So take the time to read all the RULES or you risk being disqualified… and you don’t want that.
Best of luck to everyone!

George Kamitani is one of my favorite Artist in the video game industry, this guy paints with all the colors of the wind(yeah I like Pocahontas) and what he does with color is just magic.

If you ever see this guy’s name as Art Director for a game , that Is reason enough for you to both purchase and play that game no questions asked :P
