Best Halloween Desktop Visuals
We are reaching the end of September already, which means that Halloween is now around the corner. This is a quick post I’m making in relation to my previous article about Desktop Visuals for gamers featuring Rainmeter and Wallpaper Engine, two great customization tools anyone can use to create outstanding graphic combinations, either static or animated. If you enjoy decorating your place at this time of the year, how about giving your PC/laptop a proper makeover as well?
Desktop Visuals for Gamers
It’s not a secret that, as a gamer, I have developed a weakness for visuals and aesthetics in general. I recently decided to finally take a step forward and upgrade my 5 years old PC from Windows 7 to Windows 10 (I may actually make a separate post about this topic, as I’ve pulled my hair for a week trying to make the migration work properly) and I felt like I needed a fresh change without affecting my system more than I already did. Rainmeter and Wallpaper Engine are absolutely perfect when it comes to desktop makeovers and no registry modification is required for their functionality.

ReShade 4 Real-time Post-Processing
Considering how outdated my previous guide for ReShade 3 is nowadays, it is time for me to finally make a new post and create an updated overview for the latest version of ReShade and its post-processing configuration. Also, Happy New Year!
The Best CGI Video Game Trailers
How many times have we fallen in love with an outstanding video game trailer, only to find ourselves disappointed for the incredible gap between the advertised movie-like CGI and actual gameplay graphics? Such a difference is getting less and less noticeable nowadays, especially with the commonly used motion capture technology and photorealism. Nonetheless, even without the current gen hardware, video game companies have created an infinite number of breathtaking animations in the past few years. I put together a list of 20 videos that I consider some of the best CGI trailers ever released for their level of epicness, visual effects and character design.
Creating Art with Video Games
Artists create art based on video games all the time, from 3D renders to digital paintings and traditional sketches. But did you know you can actually create art with video games, obtaining outstanding pictures even if you’re not good at drawing or modeling/rendering?
Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition – Release Date, Benchmark and overview
Happy (belated) 2018 everyone! I owe you an apology for the lack of updates in December, sadly real life got in the middle between the Holidays and personal commitments. However, yesterday morning I woke up with a bunch of incredible news regarding the Windows Edition of Final Fantasy XV, such as the awaited release date, official requirements and general informations.

Skyrim Best ENBs
The Skyrim series continues, one of the most played video games of all times that will most likely never get old. I’ve talked about visuals and general graphics in many articles by now, this time I want to create a helpful list with the best ENBs for The Elder Scrolls V, Special Edition included! Needless to say this is for PC players only, since you can’t install this kind of enhancements on console.
