Anyone remember the doom aliens Tc? Better than anything we come up with now...

Oh yes, my bro and I used to co-op that. Scariest game we ever played

Of course it spoilt us, playing official Alien games after that just didn't compare somehow.

W.T. actual F.

The TR reboot was one of my most favourite recent games.
There is no way I am getting an Xbone just for the sequel.

News Comments > John Carmack SMU Talk
6. Re: John Carmack SMU Talk Aug 2, 2014, 09:03 Bob
 
One of the things I found interesting in this talk was when someone asked him about the mega-texture stuff and applying it to mega-geometry, John basically said:
"You will kill yourself getting it to work, and then nobody will care."

It was almost as if he regretted going down that mega-whatever path.

Anyone know if this works with Oculous or Oculous dk2? Once my DK2 gets here I think I'm going to have to buy this. Need stuff to try with it!

Well on the Oculus reddit forum quite a few people are claiming that ED in the Rift DK2 is the best gaming experience they have ever had.

Edit, just one example :
I stepped in to E:D last night with the DK2 and nothing can compare to the experience. I ceased to be a gamer and became a spacer.

It was my Contact moment - "No - no words. No words to describe it. Poetry! They should've sent a poet. So beautiful. So beautiful... I had no idea."

My first dogfight scenario left me speechless, the gorgeous cockpit lives and breathes around you, your head snaps upwards to track the target while lasers pulse illuminating everything, shields light up as they absorb the impact - and you're there, right in the middle of it all and its simply incredible.

If you have a DK2 or will get one - This, you MUST know this feeling

The game industry is such an exciting place right now with PC gaming thriving, the new consoles, mobile games, and virtual reality becoming an actual reality. It’s like having an empty quest log and going into a new zone for the first time.

Maybe he is going to work for Oculus?

If they patched in Oculus Rift support into HL2, that would give me another reason to play through the game again.

Some community member already has on the mtbs3d.com forums with a downloadable version.

It can also do disconnected looking/shooting if you have an extra IMU/tracker to stick on a gun controller.

Edit, link: Half-Life 2 VR mod with head tracking (download now)

Just going by the screenshots, it almost looks like a FTL ripoff.

Well he does say that he played FTL and wanted the same game with more RPG elements:

"Like many people last fall, I found myself playing way too much FTL (Faster Than Light) and loving the experience. But every time I played the game I found myself thinking, “I would love to have this experience in a more traditional RPG setting”. So after a lot of thought, I decided to focus all my efforts into making such a game."

I don't understand why something like this hybrid trackball gamepad didn't get more support.

Take a usual gamepad and replace the right stick with a large trackball.
So you have left stick for movement and right trackball for high precision/speed mouse aiming. Best of both worlds.

Unfortunately it only got 10% funding

I've never even played any of the Tomb Raider games. Probably because I never had a problem getting girls IRL

I know, right?

So I can infer that you have a problem getting beef-cake guys IRL since you only play games with male protagonists?

Why not just include proper PC textures in the PC version from the start?

I'm sure I remember reading somewhere that if you wanted to release a multi-platform title on the xbox360 there were contracts in place that did not allow you to have better versions of the game released on the other platforms.

I hope these guys get funded but I can't get past the 2d overhead screenshot.

They mentioned that the reason for the 2d tile based game was because of funding. It would be much cheaper creating reusable tiles. Going the traditional background art route would have cost them in the millions instead of 400k.

I reall, really, hope it gets funded. QfG was my alltime favorite series.

If I remember correctly most of the blues crowd did not really like Fable III so this might be irrelevant.

But the thing I enjoyed most about it was the way coop play was handled.
I liked being able to take my current character and join in one of my friend's game, and then returning to my game with whatever loot/money I received in their game.

Plus the interaction was pretty cool, with the business partnership or marriage, co-owning houses/shops/kids/etc.

And of course there were a few challanges that required two players to solve it.

I know it is not a true co-op since the main player made all the quest choices and so on but it was a decent hybrid co-op I suppose.
