good thing we got an alternative now with Sony's VR headset that they revealed at GDC.

Bundy wrote on Mar 26, 2014, 00:09:
Do we know if Sony is planning on Windows support? There is an opportunity here for them to jump in and "save us" from evil Facebook. Like they did to MS last year after the first XB1 announcement.

I'm hoping Valve makes a move.

As for MS, they'll probably just build their own headset. After the market is saturated with them, and then wonder why they can't get a foothold. Apple will also be late to the game, but somehow they'll have filed every single conceivable patent around VR back in 2007 and start suing everyone else for stealing their invention.

it better work for PC...

I hope what he means is that i could put any PS2 disc in and play it on the PS4 with a software emulator... hopefully that's the case.

I'm loving this thread. I have an old pair of Grado's I've been planning to replace and you guys are giving me some great starting points to check out. Kudos.

the problem with Grados is that if you use 'em a lot at the computer the foam cups disintegrate pretty quickly. i had SR80s but unfortunately they died after cable connection was loose and sound stopped coming out of one ear. i dont know about Astro A40 headsets, if they're really worth $250 for a gaming headset.

I use a Steelseries Siberia V2 headset with glasses and swear by them. you can't go wrong. or i know that Corsair over the ear headsets have pretty big soft padding, so you can go with one of those if u want.

I don't know why Sony didn't make PS4 at least backwards compatible with PS3 PSN releases. just complicates things more.

this game looks pretty good! been looking forward to it.

Late March-April doesn't seem like a time of many good game releases, so this seems to stand out.

Isn't Irrational defunct?

EDIT: Also, Facebook? No thanks.

well they're slowly winding down now. i suppose since they're not making a game now that they have to spend their time coming up with promotions like these and stuff to look like they're working and get paid.

well I'm just glad that the new Infamous game is not getting perfect scores everywhere, 10 out of 10, etc. so it looks like it was properly reviewed this time.

"Coming soon to 2018: games that actually make visible use of DX12."

LOL Yup. They still have not fully utilized DX 11 yet. And you gotta buy a DX 12 capable vid card. ;p

it says right there you don't need to buy a DX 12 card. read the link posted. I don't think there will be special DX12 cards this time around, but that might change for when DX 12.1 comes out.

10 bucks a month? That's it?

That is just beyond incredible.

Yeah, and no royalties either. What's the catch? Thinking


Maybe they're going the *nix route... Free software, but make money on training, support, etc...

Not that many Indie's would be able to afford that either...

I'm liking these engine announcements though... I personally used to be all over Unreal/UDK, but switched to Unity, which I think is more approachable... Not sure about Cry/Source, etc...

-Alamar

So what are you working on currently?

Hobby stuff, and mostly mobile... I wrote a nice random (room based) map generator in Unity, that I should really throw on the asset store...

Looking at using https://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/#/content/8606, and a few more BitGem Micro's, with https://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/#/content/7853, to throw something together... But the motivation curse hits me, and then, given limited time, I'd rather play, than build...

Doesn't help that D3 will eat up most of my time next week, for a few, then Dark Souls II after that... And maybe Infamous for a week or two.

-Alamar

don't waste time playing games... they're all the same anyways.

make them!
