Industrial things like remote surgery using VR headset aside, on the consumer front I don't think he offers a convincing argument.

I don't get the virtual meeting thing, what would be so special about being in VR for that? I can only see the panoramic video thing working for special things like virtual trips through museums. I'm more than content with watching 2d screens for movies, I don't need to sit in a virtual theater to enhance the experience - I don't even like going to the theater anymore as it is.

That really sounds like a technology gimmick looking for a solution to a problem that doesn't exist.

Everyone to the basement for some VR Halo on my Nintendo!

It was a cool mod for GTAIV, really brings the game to life if you ask me. I still prefer 3rd person for the driving parts though, or front bumper cam view.

I just hope it's a full 1440p and not using any sort of custom mode that stretches out on the edges like he was mentioning in the video.

Screw VR, when can I download Carmack's brain?

I didn't know that Oculus were so deep in the trenches helping out Samsung's Gear VR. I can appreciate the desire for an untethered VR experience but I'm not sure I would want to strap a cellphone to the front of my head for hours on end. I'll let others be the guinea pig for that great experiment.

The big question is will the consumer version of Oculus be the higher res unit?

does anyone know if there are plans for player owned stations or factories or something like that?

pretty sure that this won't happen, I can't remember the specifics as to why not.

I have a feeling that rather than putting much effort into enemy AI they'll just buff their stats to make them harder to take down and deal more damage.

If you never played Elite before then I guess the lack of a linear story mode might seem confusing but you can't say that there's no content in the game worthy of buying because it lacks that kind of structure.

It's not a game that you have a "winning" condition, maybe you could set a goal to become "Elite" but there's no end game cinematic once you achieve that goal.

Hey, can I ask something stupid and basic?

Does this game offer anything for folks who like story-driven singleplayer, or is it purely sandbox when played alone? Is there any sort of story campaign?

It's sandbox, the 'story' is about whatever you do in the game. I have read though that there will be missions that sound sort of like they might be laid out in a campaign structure that will be added at some point. Most likely when you join one of the military branches you'll be given missions that are focused around that element or theme.

Unless internet providers change their evil ways this is dead on arrival. Way too many providers impose bandwidth caps that are insanely limited and now they want to put speed caps on your data as well essentially throttling you dependent on the content you want to access.

Good luck getting your game streaming service off the ground in such a hostile consumer unfriendly environment that the internet is quickly eroding into.

I'm not ready for 4k yet, I'll wait for a die shrink that's suppose to hit next year.

This will probably be the entry level card needed to make VR actually playable since you need solid 60fps.

I second the recommendation of buying an Asus or MSI with higher end components and much quieter cooler than reference boards. I have an Asus and really like how quiet it is.

I'm liking the progress of this one. Unlike another PC space game that shall remain nameless.

Was this the game where if you buy into the beta, you still have to pay for the game when it comes out, minus some small discount? Or am I thinking of something else?

If you were a backer of the game on kickstarter you could opt in to testing Elite at various stages, the alpha was really expensive and the beta was something like an extra $25. If you buy the beta version for $75 that includes the retail version as well.

The price of the game is the least of your worries, you really need a HOTAS joystick setup, maybe not full on with rudder pedals but at least a joystick and throttle.

My preference is the CH products combat stick + throttle and rudder pedals, the CH throttle has a little joystick for your thumb that really comes in handy when doing micro thruster adjustments.

To round off the experience I would also highly recommend some form of TrackIR head tracking, the game supports six axis tracking so keep that in mind. Simple left right up and down tracking is only part way there. It just brings the game to life in a way that's hard to explain and it's actually helpful in a user interface sort of way as you can just move your head slightly left or right to get interface screens to pop up.

I'm sure you could play the game with just mouse and keyboard if you practiced long enough with it but personally I can't fly for shit without a joystick and throttle.

I've read that they plan for a 'Gamma' release phase after the Beta is over, they'll reset everyone back to square one at Gamma and again at Retail.

You mean like just about every cop vs robber chase movie ever made, besides if you want to draw parallels from reality I'm sure you can do far worse things in GTA V.

I wonder what it will end up costing the retailer to support Apple Pay, will it be an additional percent on top of the rate credit card companies already charge?

Yeah but who pays full retail for PC games? There's always at least a 20% off coupon code from greenman gaming going on. It's not that it isn't probably worthy of full retail pricing it's just that it feels like it's either "too soon" for another edition or people are assuming it's just more of the same. Aside from the UI it doesn't appear to have a ton of asset recycling from BL2.

Kind of a victim of their own success, I keep playing Borderlands 2 thinking I'm near the end and keep opening up new areas. I'm not a huge fan of the way the inventory system works in these games, especially when you have to keep dumping weapons to switch out to new ones with a full inventory - I never seem to want to dump my older weapons. I kind of wish you could just rank up your weapon rather than play the random weapon drop game. The need to open up hundreds of little boxes for ammo and money get's tiring as well.

Still, it's a solid shooter with crude humor and over the top gore. I love the funny one liners like "I smell delicious!" when you set an enemy on fire.

I just picture this degenerating into something completely sleazy like the "gay pride parade" in San Fransisco.

Right, so wait for the all inclusive bundle version on Steam summer sale. Got it.

Not exactly an announcement that makes you want to pre-order the game guys.
