  • Mozilla partners with Epic Games to bring Unreal Engine 3 to the web

    DNP Mozilla partners with Epic Games to bring Unreal Engine 3 to the web

    Building on its recent advancements in JavaScript optimization, Mozilla has announced a partnership with Epic Games that will bring the Unreal Engine 3 to Firefox. Unlike the ill-fated InstantAction, this gives developers the opportunity to port high-end titles to the web without the use of plugins. Hardly content with enhancing desktop browser-based games, Mozilla is aiming to bring this experience to mobile devices — but it’s stopping short of providing any details beyond that. The company notes that it’s currently working with major developers such as EA, ZeptoLab and Disney to bring optimizations to their existing titles. Mum’s the word on when 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand will get the chance to soak browsers everywhere, but you can catch a video preview of something slightly less spectacular just after the break.

  • GameStick dev unit found at GDC 2013, we go eyes-on

    GameStick dev unit found at GDC 2013, we go eyeson

    GameStick is here … er, sort of. The development units are at least here at GDC 2013, quietly hanging out behind a nondescript computer monitor running a few Android games paired with a Nyko wireless controller. That’s right, it wasn’t running with the proprietary GameStick controller, but a third-party wireless — we’ll go hands-on with the company’s internally built controller later this evening, and thusly we didn’t want to offer a half-impression with the third-party units available on the show floor. Stay tuned for more, and take a gander at the gallery below for now.

  • ModernMix is a $5 program that lets you run Metro-style apps in desktop-style windows

    ModernMix is a $5 program that lets you run Metrostyle apps in desktopstyle windows

    Sometimes you just wanna close a window. Or resize it, or drag it so that it overlaps with something else. That’s how Windows works, and it’s more or less how you’d expect to interact with Windows 8 in particular. The problem is, those old-world rules don’t necessarily apply to newer Metro-style apps: yes, you can snap them in place next to traditional x86 programs, but you can’t resize those windows, nor can you arrange them so that they overlap with each other.

    Fortunately for you multitaskers out there, Stardock’s new app ModernMix squeezes all your Metro programs into traditional desktop windows — ones you can resize, minimize, drag around and even close completely. The app also lets you pin Metro apps to the Taskbar on the desktop, as well as run them at full-screen when the mood strikes. It’s priced at $5, but Stardock is offering a 30-day free trial to folks who prefer to try before they buy. Just remember: you’ll need Windows 8, not RT. Not that you RT users are spending much time in the desktop anyway.
