LimeWire Basic
A fast P2P and torrent client

LimeWire is a fast peer-to-peer file sharing application and torrent client.

The program is far easier to use than many of the competition. Enter a search term; choose the file you need; LimeWire downloads it, generally very quickly - performance here is excellent - and plays the file when you're done.

LimeWire will prompt you during the download if it can't find a licence, a reminder not to infringe copyright. Although if you're determined, a click will clear the alert and you won't see it again, so the program isn't going to get in your way.

P2P doesn't have to be just about downloading pirated copies of the latest DVDs, though. LimeWire includes a Friends feature that makes it straightforward to set up your own custom file sharing network with friends, family or colleagues. Log in with your Gmail, LiveJournal or Jabber account and you can then use it to exchange family photos, work documents, home videos or any other files that are too large or confidential to email.

LimeWire is also available in a PRO version, that adds optimised search results, improved performance, and an integrated AVG antivirus engine to detect and block any malware you might download. Prices start at $21.95 for a six month subscription, and you can find out more at the LimeWire site.
 

Verdict:

File sharing doesn't get much easier than this - and LimeWire is fast, too

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
