Lane strategy? Oh Jesus....

Game Workshop sucks balls, these guys are worse than Wizards of the Coast....

Makes you wonder how they even still exist. This isn't even a better flash game, or browser game... hah

Is apparently and supposedly one of the best racing sims there is. Based on rFactor but heavily and insanely detailed modded, with one of the best racing AI's in any racing game ever made.

Gonna try it myself tomorrow and say what I think of it's physics It looks and feels pretty damn realistic so far. FAR more realistic than any other sim I played recently.

if only the graphics weren't so meh, but hey, at least it runs at good enough FPS to be viable for VR (for the future ,p)

I get migraine from cinema 3D as well.. in the end, for people like us a test-run in a store is the only way to make sure we are compatible with the tech. Your speculation is not unfunded but even your specific medical problem has a technological fix (eye tracking and adaptive lenses)
We'll have to see, that's the only way in the end. A store demo of it would help. But I don't see stores lining up for it, and I don't see Oculus lining up and shipping out demo units to people to try out and see if the tech will work for them either.

I see stores lining up. Places like Best Buy will have these running Skyrim or BF4, and people will try it and be floored.

Both these games would be really bad examples of good VR demos though, you need to control directional movement and head-movement separately, a mech-sim, racing game, flight sim and specific for VR demos are what's gonna sell the tech. If the people in question are smart, they will bring VR demo units in every major store in every relevant nation. Just throwing it at the market is not gonna do anything.

Also obviously a porn demo needs to exist. Just saying...

But much like 3D, the VR helmets won't work well for those of us who have serious brain injuries, especially in the occipital lobe. And while I can see the stuff in 3D, 10mins tops and I either get a migraine, or I'm ready to vomit.

Wind simulation... that's... a first in gaming.. looks pretty neat. Let's hope it's a good game.

Flight simulators have a certain amount of wind modeled on occasion. It's usually a fairly simple and uniform effect, at least from what I've seen.
I wonder if that tech is going to have any sort of use in the game or it will just be and extra layer of eye candy.

It'd be pretty hilarious if they developed such tech just for eye-candy. But even if just eye-candy.. it's curious to see that in such a game

No that's just you VR with proper presence is an absolute game changing technological revolution. And 1 step of many to the holo deck.
I heard almost word-for-word that same sentence back in 1996 when I started working in IT. It didn't hold true then either, it's not true now. The biggest problem with VR headsets are the novelty effect and motion sickness.

Novelty effect? *Presence* is not a novelty effect. If they nailed presence you can literally fool your brain into believing it is somewhere else. This would the FIRST TIME that VR has ever managed this. And from all accounts so far from the dev kit 2, this has been achieved. And as for motion sickness.. that is a technological solvable problem that was not solvable in 1996, but it is now.

Heck, this is the first step into remote presence systems. I think you simply don't understand what this means. With sufficient technology you can fool your brain into believing a puppet or machine body you control in real-life is you. We won't need manual labor in space ever again should that technology be created.

You act like VR is a novelty gimmick for gaming, when it has substantial far reach implications to technologies. Fighter jets, drones, every single thing where you don't want people to experience hostile effects (G force/death) will be remote presence VR stuff. Medical applications, social applications.

Don't get me wrong, I am skeptic and realist. Motion sickness is a real issue that they need to fix. And it will take a lot of technology to do it. But it can be done today. It could not be done 1996 or 2000 or even 2005

And yes, latency would mean humans would need to be in space, but they would not be required to do EVA work on stations. They can literally remote operate an robot with actual presence via VR + full-haptic feedback suit.

Fries does not hold the same faith in the wearable computing market

"After watching 3D TV fail so spectacularly the last few years, I'm a bit of a sceptic about VR," he said.

In January, a new study published by Endeavour Partners suggested that about a third of American consumers who have owned a wearable product stopped using it within six months

Just about everyone else is skeptical about it too.

The last two trailers took me from "Meh. Not interested." To "First on my wishlist!".

I'll wait 3 days after release, check how the game's being received, then decide to buy it or not. Excited!

Same here You can say what you want about Ubisoft.. but they do make interesting games.

I don't get it. Is this single player, coop, or multiplayer? Kind of messed up when the advertising fails to communicate vital info about the product.

It's 100% multiplayer horde game-mode with 0 actual story in the mission, it's just setting up a .. uhm.. setting. Really an odd trailer for it when you think about it.

It's kind of fun and kind of half-assed and really difficult with less than 4 people.

Sounds like every BBQ I ever did.

Evil succeeds in the world not because people say yes to it, but because they don't say no.

Blimey, I agree with Cutter.

But in this case Mozilla is actually very and even exceptionally neutral and has far reaching benefits no matter gender or race or religion. And after all, Mozilla is who makes Firefox, not the CEO.

Aside that, what you said is of course true. Evil grows when it is ignored. When a silent agreement and silent ignoring establishes within a society.... so in that context, this reaction by OKCupid is not so absurd after all.

Most evil happens because people choose to be ignorant of it.

Kerbal Space Program is on sale on Steam to celebrate the 0.23.5 NASA Asteroid Recovery Mission pack.

How is Kerbal these days? I usually don't buy early access.

It's still a fun sandbox But if you want an experience with a goal and progression you should probably wait. There is now science gathering, but it's all very iffy and half-thought out. Mods fix it mostly.. but each new update breaks most mods.... so I am waiting for the game to finish now as well.

...and guarantees never again will there be a proper game...

Hahaha, for years I never understood what the Transformers wiki was getting at with Ruined FOREVER, now I know exactly what they're talking about.

I admit as a (once) huge hattlech fan I get a little carried away when talking about MWO ,) My point is simply that to me the franchise is irrelevant now. Even if Mech Warrior 5 were to be announced as a AAA title with SP campaign, COOP and properly balanced MP .. I'd not buy it Especially not if it's by Piranha Games.

Funny you mention transformers though, because Piranha games also made a transformer game.....

Ya, but I can see where Ruined FOREVER in the context of BattleTech also applied at Dark Age/Jihad, at MechAssault, at every single iteration of the Mechwarrior franchise, etc. To be honest I lost interest when the Clans were introduced, but now the Internet makes it easy to get caught up.

Hehe, yeah that's very true. I guess I should just accept that Mech Warrior how I saw and wanted it is dead... but it's hard to do that when I see MWO mentioned... I still remember that trailer and how hyped I was, a proper Mech Warrior game... and what did we get.. sigh

If you can buy a mech that guarantees you always lose, is it still pay to win? The answer is: YES

Sigh, MWO still makes ms sour every single time I read about it. Fucking travesty that shit is. Ruined battletech for years to come and guarantees never again will there be a proper game in the Mech Warrior series. Blah!
