It's the new Kinect guys! Kinect 2.0! THIS device is really wonderful, and THIS device really can do all the things we've been saying the previous one was able to do, even though everyone knew we were just lying our asses off.

But THIS TIME it's for realz! Please buy one?

(Please ignore the fact that it really doesn't do much of what we're promising on the Xbone still.)

A whole new group of people can download jpgs of naked women at near modem speeds.


Ugh, remember how fun that was? Having to wait 3 minutes for your modem to download one naked tit?

News Comments > Michael Abrash Joins Oculus

Hope you'll enjoy writing ad code for Facebook, Michael.

this time we're working on technology that will change not just computer gaming, but potentially how all of us interact with computers, information, and each other every day. I think it's going to be the biggest game-changer I've ever seen

Hyperbole SMASH! Seriously dudes, it's VR. As long as you're required to strap a fucking flight helmet to your face, the large, large, large majority of people are simply never going to use it. Didn't 3D prove this already, multiple times over?

It'll be a niche (edit) product that maybe, possibly, one day might become commonplace in gaming. This idea that everyone's going to live in a VR universe is just ludicrous. You're not building fucking ANA.

Beam internet from the sky. Like Satellite?

Why bother? It sucks.

(Though it's cool that they're getting people hooked up who had no internet access before.)

Mmmm, it says "it puts the power of the city in the palm of your hand"

If a GTA trailer said that, I'm sure it would have been much more cooler/funny with the vision.

If GTA said that, it'd mean that the power of the city is... your dick?

I'd sort of like to know what combat looks like, but I can wait.

You'd have to no matter what, as I'm pretty sure the preview I read for this said that ship combat isn't in the alpha.

Your ROI is supposed to be that you get the game cheaper. Maybe someone forgot to tell Brad.

However, even so, this game isn't even in alpha yet, and it's already being sold?

News Comments > Dead Space Free on Origin
29. Re: Dead Space Free on Origin Mar 27, 2014, 23:28 Creston
 
Kudos where kudos are due, that's a cool move by EA.

As for Origin, it works, but that's really about it. The biggest issue it's got is that there is just no way to port something between computers, without essentially doing installer hacks and praying it works.

This is what... the third year that Origin exists? And still they ignore this fairly simple, yet often requested feature.

Shit, somebody rolls up in a Lexus with just two totally hot chicks, I'd sell.

For 2 bn, he could roll up on a moped with a 300lb drag queen...

It's good to see you have standards, man.

It's the new American dream: Come up with a great idea and sell it to some idiot before everyone realizes that there is no way in hell to monetize it.

I think the Oculus will sell (probably fewer units with FB behind it), but there is no way in hell they'll ever make even half of that 2B investment back.

And FB's investors know it too.

They want to sell the unit for cost? Uh-oh... so what are they going to shove in there to make money for them?
You ever been to facebook? Ads. Duh.

Yeah, that's what I'm worried about too.

Oculus VR "never intended to sell the company".

They cut that quote off too early.

"We never intended to sell the company, but one day Zuck rolls up in his Lambo stretch limo with a dozen totally hot chicks, and the next thing we know we're doing lines of coke off their naked bodies. Zuck says, 'Boys, this can be your life if you sell out to me.' and in three days the deal was done!"

Shit, somebody rolls up in a Lexus with just two totally hot chicks, I'd sell.

And can I just say, holy crap for that 3d printed skull. I can't even fathom what such an operation entails. I guess cutting away half of the skull, putting half the 3D printed on in place, and then repeating?

23 hours of surgery... incredible.
The video actually shows the her skulless head.

I don't watch surgery videos. That shit makes me queasy.

Or treat it as a lesson as what can happen with kick starting.

If some small outfit is pitching something and if it hits it big, expect a company to buy them out.

I don't have that much of an issue with them being bought out. As others have pointed out, shit, few people would say no to 2 billion dollars. I do have an issue with them selling out before they actually delivered a finished product to their backers.

And, obviously, I have a problem with the shitheap that bought them.

In any case, there are large amounts of people pissed over it, and many of those will probably unjustly use that as a smear against Kickstarter, and that REALLY pisses me off.

Thanks for putting a huge dent into KS confidence, Palmer, you fucking tool.

Maybe you can laugh at it while sipping tea with Mark Zuckerberg.

He's now a 21 year old billionaire. (well, not quite, but likely very, very close.)
I can't hate him too much for that.

I mean, I hate him for being a 21 year old billionaire, but that's neither here nor there.

Maybe he'll buy the Cubs and make them a respectable team again.
