Epic Citadel: Get In My Browserface

By Craig Pearson on May 3rd, 2013.


Epic MegaGames has just released the Epic Citadel Unreal 3 tech demo for web browsers, and it only works with Firefox. I only keep Firefox on my PC for the RPS CMS. Trying to write this site in Chrome doesn’t work for me, with all the links being stripped out in every post. So Firefox survives, which means I can walk around the castley polygons of Epic’s oldish tech demo in my browser! Does that mean WordPress is really an installation of the Unreal Engine? I’m going to unscientifically say ‘yes’. Let’s test it out with the Translo-

Did you know that there’s a term for a device that’s between a phone and a tablet? In one on the worst portmanteaus of our time, they’re called ‘phablets’. That is gloriously awful, and I applaud every ugly syllable of it. The new Razer PC gaming tablet, the existence of which was announced last year as ‘Project Fiona‘, isn’t a phablet, but I can’t see why we can’t come up with a new term for it. After all, it’s a Windows-based tablet with all kinds of other gizmos attached. It needs something memorable. What about ‘Tabsolutely Phabulets’? Hmm, it’s not quite torturous enough. Tablets used to be called ‘slates’, before the MAN got his marketing team all up in its grill. There must be a compelling combination of all those words… of course! I have it. A term that accurately describes the upcoming Windows-based slate from Razer, which does everything a flat gamey thing does, but also more. And is black and shiny, and runs a full copy of Windows.
