I was an okay game, but not for $59.99

The maps in the alpha were all arena based and didn't seem to have enough space to evade the hunters long enough to evolve, mostly at later stages in the unlock advancement. It turned into a nascar race track with the hunters chasing a monster around and around. They mentioned mod support off hand at one time but I don't know if they've committed to releasing any mapping tools.

Timed exclusive DLC for Xbox One, one month I think. While they've said they had a ton of DLC planned for the game supposedly they won't be fractioning the community with paid maps.

I want them graphics to be in-game.

It uses the CryEngine to good effect but lacks destruction, doesn't look or play anything like that trailer of course.

One article I read a few weeks ago said that the guy playing the monster had no trouble beating the hunters nearly every single time. Seems like hunters need really good teamwork? Maybe they've tweaked it since then.

I think it's important to understand that while Islam certainly plays a part, so too does the tribal culture of the region. There were honor killings, forced marriages, patriarchal councils, etc. in this region for 1000s of years before Islam came around. Note that the vast majority of terrorists come from the middle east, while the most populous Islamic nation, Indonesia, produces relatively few.

That being said, while the vast majority of wars in history have been primarily non-religious, when wars have been religious, Islam has been the biggest instigator.

It's odd to see people trying to draw an Islam = Christianity comparison, when the nearest and best comparison is actually with secular and state atheist regimes. North Korea's attitude towards their idiot leaders is a lot closer to Islam's attitude towards Mohammed. Come to think of it, I'm pretty sure you can't get very far with Castro mockery either in Cuba.

I think Cuba and DPRK are poor analogs here. Reverence for Castro and Kim are government enforced by secret police. The most in the general population don't revere them. However, most Muslims don't take lampooning of Mohammed easily as a matter of course, just as most Christians don't take lampooning of Jesus easily. No prodding by secret police is needed. It's just that in most Christian nations, the response to religious satire isn't violence.

Well, they've been a shadow of their former selves for over a year now. One could say they were, in fact, a zombie studio.

I'm confused. Why exactly did they put these passwords in to begin with? How is putting a password into something HELPING a Luddite (apparently we call them "less tech-savvy" now...) install a game?


The people of Lud for several years now have waged a campaign to remove the term "Luddite" from the common vernacular.

It was painful reading those twitter meltdowns. How did baseball players get so stupid?

Human beings are stupid. Here's a story about a dude that meant to send a pic of his junk to his GF, and ended up sending it to his whole snapchat contact list, including the underage girls he coached. Honest mistake, but game over.

Not a single VR tech has tried to tackle the main problems remaining that I see immersion wise. Eye movement and surround visuals.

So that if you move your eye, the image is adjusted according to the position of your fovea on the display adjusting for eye movement ( iows, correcting the 3d rendering for perspective errors and adjusting the projection in realtime for the DLP retina projection tech ).

And for surround, so you can't look elsewhere, all your field of view would be encapsulated in the simulation. Now you could make some freaky good horror games with "just out of the corner of your eye" movement/hallucinations and stuff. Now that would totally rock.

THe Samsung VR has eye tracking. Not implemented the way you describe, but it's there to track cursor movements.

It's confusing that his company is named "Origin PC." I just assumed that he was working at EA Origin's website, and might have been heading that up. I guess it's not infringement, but damn is it confusing.

Yeah, that was a little headscratching at first...

I'd still love to try Valve's controller...I may totally end up hating it, but it at least looks interesting.


Yeah, me too. Have been very interested in their unique approach, since so little innovation has been going on in the controller sphere for years now.

Pretty cool. Looks fantastic. Wonder if the Skywind folks will donate anything to this project.

Also, cool of Bethblog to feature it. Love Bethesda for their pro-mod stance.

Wow, tons of VR stuff. I would love one of those treadmills, but no room where I live.

And that Glyph thing is probably the future of VR: projecting images directly onto the retina. DLP has super fast response times.
