At this year’s GDC, Crytek demonstrated new features of the updated CryEngine. One of their demos was Back To Dinosaur Island, a VR demo designed for use with the Oculus Rift Crescent Bay prototype.

It’s a direct feed of the demo in action, and it’s f**ken awesome.
Downey Jr, who was arrested for possession of heroin, cocaine and an unloaded Magnum handgun in 1996, has had past issues with drugs, but has since turned his life around.

Mr Hanline was wrongfully sentenced to life without parole for first degree murder in 1978 following the death of a biker named J.T. McGarry, who disappeared from his home in Ventura County, California.
British Olympian and two-time world champion boxer Amir Khan shows off his hand speed and coordination by turning an empty bottle as an impromptu speed bag. Imagine if that was your head.
