Eeeeeeeeeeeee! Beam

I put 80 hours into the first version. 80! Normally I lose interest after 40.

I guess I just like watching ships burn. Literally. It's my favourite tactic. Fire bomb + rockmen = mwahahahaha

Noone, barring a dark corner of the internet where I dare not venture, want anything to do with a group using vomit as a tactic. So if you're trying to keep people away from the Bus mission accomplished. If you're trying to win support you might as well fling poo while you're at it, you aren't getting anywhere.

Does anyone think that VR as it is now will be for anyone more than enthusiasts?

Zuckerberg apparently. But I agree with the sentiment, it won't go far past gaming and the occasional non-game niche use. I only wanted it for gaming so that's fine by me.

The market has spoken. And if Microsoft had actually listened when they were developing 8 they would have known that. Oh well giants need a good slap upside the noggin from time to time.

Be realistic, we've also been hearing about it with regards to 3D since the 50's too. And it comes back every 10 years, doesn't catch on, and dies a slow death.

You've been hearing about 3D because it's used to increase ticket sales. And it dies because the tech still sucks. The various methods used so far all have drawbacks that outweigh the gain.

No matter what anyone said VR wasn't even market viable until just recently due to either quality or cost issues.

VR doesn't use the faked 3D method that causes people problems.

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.

It wasn't possible to hold true back then because the technology flat out sucked. The first flying machines were terrible too but we stuck with it (no I am not comparing the usefulness of the two). Motion sickness is largely a tech issue being resolved right now. Niche is probably an accurate assessment but novelty is opinion. Everyone who has tried it has been utterly floored by it. Not in a "this is kinda fun" wiimote way but a "holy fucking shit this is awesome" way.

Why isnt this used by the military if its so damn dangerous and potentially life threatening? Wouldnt this be like 100 times cheaper than bullets or like 1000 times cheaper than missles??

The military wants a weapon with a high guarantee to kill. The frequency of it's lethality has no bearing on the case when it's used in the way it was here. Despite their potential to inflict harm the military don't use fireworks as weapons either, yet using those like a dumbass will land you in jail too.

Choppa's never fly in bad weather? I'd have to think that is more distracting than a small glare.

There have been pilots who actually have physical damage in their eyes from laser wielding jackasses. As mentioned earlier when it hits the glass it can block out the entire view. Considering they are targetting flying masses of metal, fuel and people that will do large damage if crashed these people deserve the book thrown at them. Especially habitual criminals like this guy.

Nintendo hasn't been innovative inside their IPs in a while. Zelda went through three console generations of using the same engine, same animations, and same gameplay. Smash Brothers hasn't changed, and I'd say Mario Kart innovation arguably peaked with Double Dash.

The last Zelda brought in a new kind of movement mechanic that evolved the way the person looked at puzzles. The Zelda before that had 1:1(almost) sword control. Mario Galaxy had the spherical levels with gravity effects. The Mario's after that had coop multiplayer. We'll have to agree to disagree.

Nintendo is innovative. The problem is they do it inside of existing IP's. Someone will come up with a gameplay idea and a higher up will want to plug it into the next Mario, or Zelda, etc instead of making something new with it. They're so cautious they won't let their people do anything completely new out of fear it won't sell. In the meantime most of the existing IP's are dead tired and drown out any changes. In my personal (non)expert opinion they should take the reins off of some of their younger staff and just see what they can create. Make it digital only so there's no physical distribution costs.

I just can't help but think of the microwave power stations from Simcity2000 that occasionally mis-align and fry your city.

I still hesitate to trust Facebooks influence over the long term (short term should be fine), but this is a good move regardless. Can't wait for the first consumer version.

With the damage the license has received from sub-par products in the last few years it might be a good idea to allow it's use in a popular series just to give it a boost.

Now i'm even more confused, because no i wasnt thinking about Sots2, i was thinking Elemental was being referred to, which to my knowledge is the same dev. Stardock.

The original poster was referring to Sword of the Stars II by Kerberos which is why I mentioned different developers. While it wasn't brought up Elemental would actually be a sufficient reason for concern regarding a new Stardock game.
