Battlefield Hardline is due out in fall 2014.

I am moving on, a goodbye of sorts

cropped-electrosports-header-dec-2013.png

That’s right, I am moving on. I am not leaving blogging behind though. I have just started up a new blog that has been in development since the new year, I am launching it tomorrow and it will feature some cool features which will be revealed as I post more and more stuff down the line. However if you are looking for a preview head on over to http://www.enforcingthecode.com and check it out. It is still a work in progress and it may change over the rest of today as you are navigating the website.

But overall I am excited to be shifting over to the new site because it has sat there getting various changes throughout the past 3 months and this is as good as it is going to look with as little coding as I know. However if I knew as much about coding as I know about graphic design or even blogging I could have probably made a pretty bad-ass looking website for myself.

Anyway the main reason I am leaving this one behind is because I wanted to venture on my own and see what success I could have without the wordpress.com constraints, such as file upload sizes, the limited bandwidth, and just an overall lack of true features that it truly takes to run a technology based website which is why it was important for me to really move on and get working on a site that would be able to deliver on a host of different features I have implemented on the website over at Enforcing The Code.

I have a follow button and I am trying to incorporate as many as the wordpress.com features as possible to make it as seamless of a transition as possible for all of my readers and for myself because that was my main reason for going to wordpress.org, but we will see how it works out.

I would like to thank everyone who has viewed and liked my blog here for the last 14 months, I hope to serve you all on the new site, and it should allow more opportunities than I have now with ELECTROSPORTS. I hope to see you all on the new site, because it will be the same as this outside of a new look and name.

Thank You,

Kevin

Tom Clancy’s The Division: Snowdrop Engine Video

Ubisoft today released a video demoing its new Snowdrop Engine. The video shows off how the engine makes the game look different in various situations mostly dealing with lighting and particles. This video is nice to look at, but I am worried that the game will be all on foot and no driving around at all. Which sucks especially if it’s a big map to explore. Clearly we’ll find out more at a later date, but as it is, it is nice to see something new for the game again since we’ve been pretty much closed out of the developments of this game since the debut in June at E3 2013.
