The internet has blessed the world as a wonderful tool of vast resources. Thanks to the advent of the internet, many of the ways of living of the 1990’s and earlier have had to adapt to this new platform. Much of television and movies have gone digital, including sites that offer subscription services to watch programs. Video gaming now utilizes an online account to keep track of games, and you can now download them in addition to buying a physical copy of the game. Social media has made networking, communicating, and sharing things a daily facet of life. With so much available on the internet, sometimes people lose track of the neat things you can find. While sites may try to bog you down with prices for services (such as Hulu), many others provide services for free. Read on for a brief list of free services available online that I consider worth checking out.

4. Develop a Game with Unreal Engine 4
Most video gamers have heard of Unreal Engine, a famous gaming engine that many of today’s popular games use. Due to the sandbox style of this engine, users can create just about anything with Unreal Engine. For example, I once saw a video of Super Mario 64 rendered with Unreal Engine, and I can say that it looks better than anything that Nintendo has put out to date.
