I'm pretty sure this game will have a pretty healthy lifespan. Blizzard already has a built-in fanbase and the game looks tailored for eSports.

Yep that's what I meant by it.
But Titanfall should have progressed that way too but it was handled like garbage.

This will probably be the first Blizzard game I buy since the launch of WoW in 2004. I'm not super excited for it and I'll probably get bored with it quickly... but it does look like they put a lot of effort into design and gameplay on their TF2 clone they have here. I'm always down for top fragging in some fast paced MP.

Why would you buy a F2P game?

Fine ... "buy into"
To get me to install whatever Blizzard's Steam client is these days.

Edit: Kind of like Titanfall did for Origin I guess
I guess the positive is that Blizzard has ridiculous fanboys who will give this a big community that hopefully won't die as quick.

because I was the one who brought up consumer protections. you know, the industry-leading 24 hours full refund no questions asked policy that the Great Satan, ahem, EA has?

Isn't Steam's new policy better than that now though?
Honest question. I don't know if you can consider EA's refund policy industry-leading anymore.

What doesn't a search for "No Man's Sky" find this article?

Edit: First impression -- poor man's Star Citizen. But that's probably giving SC too much credit. A cross between E:D and Starbound maybe?

The apostrophe throws off Blue's article search. It shows up if you exclude the apostrophe.

I simply can't take Steam's rapid growth in the last year or so seriously. How many of the accounts are 2nd, 3rd, 4th (or more) accounts for one person to farm cards in these ARG games to sell for free money?

Believe it or not kids are getting into PC gaming at a rate not seen in decades.

Just watched the long Doom video. I think it looks amazing. Love the work done with the map and game creator too. Pretty surprised at the quality overall, wasn't expecting much from Doom 4.

I don't foresee myself playing any fast paced games but I love first person exploration/Adventure games. I want to be immersed in a world and figure out puzzles at my own pace. I've been fine sitting down doing that for decades I'll be fine sitting down with VR until the neural implants start showing up in 2030.

100x this. I have both a DK1 and DK2. Mouse + Keyboard is a pain in the arse when using them as if you take your hands off the keyboard at any time and lose your position then you end up taking the headset off to relocate them.
A controller is a lot easier and the best of current options available. The STEM stuff looks interesting, but it's while off being finished. Obviously haven't tried the Oculus touch peripheral yet.

Your offhand doesn't have to be a keyboard, it could be like a nostromo. Buy I have to assume many can easily put their hand on WASD blindly and I can't believe much anyone looks at their keys while playing. That said, I haven't tried a Rift with a mouse to know for sure, I just wouldn't have a problem with finding buttons to press, it would be the affect of the device, not the finding of the keys.

I don't have a problem finding my keyboard and mouse while using the Rift. But for some of those VR experiences you want to stand up or look around. When you stand up you just feel like a rock keyboardist and when fully turning around you can't use the keyboard and mouse anymore of course, looking over the shoulder is fine though. So a wireless controller would be better in those situations. Unfortunately, as most of us know here first-person games are better with mouse and keyboard than a thumb stick.

After watching this video gotta say that I think this character will get nerfed to the ground before this game even sees open beta.

I felt that way about the first video. With the time warping dual pistols character.
This guy starts out pretty bad with rockets but seems to pick it up quick.

It's a damn good game. My only complaint is that I'm going to be playing it when I'm 70 and still not have beaten it.

Looks like quite a few here didn't bother to read the article.
The Rift is only for PC.
Xbox One can stream games to Windows 10.
You can play those streaming Xbox One games on Windows 10 looking through your Rift at a "cinema screen".
It's a gimmick. One that doesn't even necessarily require a partnership or anything. I can already look at anything on my PC screen using my Rift and looking at a virtual "cinema screen".

ah but this is only the beginning, eventually you'll be able to interact with xbox one avatars through your PC in a virtual theater.

Flush

The leading Oculus Rift theater app actually has optional audience members. I think it even might have MP to it but I didn't try that out. It's kind of eerie sitting int he theater seat and looking behind you and some dude is there watching your movie with you.

But yeah, virtual chatrooms/multi-user-experiences are the primary reason Facebook bought the company in my opinion.

The article is not an article at all, it's a couple of sentences following bullet points, one of which is: "Xbox One games will be playable on Oculus Rift."

Sorry I guess all the details were on the 2nd link.

Cold and wet is infinitely better than hot and dry

Or hot and wet.

Hot and wet is always best. Couple that with some Vermont maple syrup and it's a definite good time.

Assuming we're still talking about weather, hot and wet is probably what hell really feels like.

Damn man, that's a pretty sweet bonus.

Cutter you really don't know jack shit about the history of american empire.

Go read some books:

I think Russia demeaned itself well enough by illegally annexing the Crimea. If I'd be a cynic I would think Russia does this intentionally to turn the Western World against it as nobody could have been stupid enough to think an annexation this close to European core powers would go unanswered or unpunished.

It doesn't change the fact that you are of course correct, everyone does it, and Russia is singled out here. But WHY that is is obvious. Nobody except Russia annexed an area in a sovereign country. So whatever the case, Russia is the evil in this painting of Cold War 2 - The Making Of

And the US occupation in over 180 countries around the world? The invasions, occupations, assassinations, etc. China and Tibet, India/Pakistan and Kashmir, Turkey/Iraq and Kurdistan, etc. etc. etc. Sorry, what was that about Russia again?

I'm not going to dispute the stuff you listed. But on the topic of annexation, the last time someone tried that was Saddam annexing Kuwait. Before that it was Morocco annexing Western Sahara in the late 70s, something that's still up in the air.
