One more sale for Egosoft. They deserve it.

And another. Had no real interest, saw the trailer, saw the coupon. Ugg. Damn my game ADD. I already have too many games.

Where is that Oculus Rift thing and when is it going to be released?

2014, as they've always said. Slender supports it now. It's awesome, in a shit-your-pants sort of way.

I like the idea and will probably buy one. I have a lot of smaller almost flash-like indie games in Steam that work well with a controller. I wouldn't mind playing them with my kids. And I'm not going to run a wire across my house, even if the wife would let me. Guess it just depends on the prices.

I didn't make it past the first battle I was so unimpressed.

The battles get a LOT more involved as you unlock more skills. It always takes me a bit to get back in to the Witcher controls, but eventually it comes more natural and isn't bad. But that initial hour or so is always a struggle while everything destroys me.

Turn the difficulty down (if you can, I can't remember) and then raise it back up after you get the hang of things. I believe I went with combat skills on my main play through. I'd suggest that or magic.

FF14 was turned around. Still an MMO, but pretty fun. Sold out everywhere too, but they just turned digital downloads back on.

Can't believe it's been 8 years and that they held on for that long. I thank them for bringing us Public Quests (I don't recall any before that). Wish the game had done better.

Agree with others about the Carpal Tunnel. I'd like to see an automated way to collect the bubbles. Perhaps have a unit walk around and collect it so it works slowly, and then let us click if we need an immediate infusion of .. whatever it is. I like the card stuff as well.

What I don't like is how long the start of the game is. If the only thing I can do at the start is play with the dirt to build more houses, it gets boring. I also have no idea what some stuff is. For example, clicking a unit does a green +100. What the hell is that? What does a flag mean, other than I can knock on the door and have them come out to build something?

Definitely see potential in it. I don't mind the graphics. The sidebar thing could use some improvement (can't scroll wheel through it, and I'd like to filter out things I can't afford/cast yet). But so far it looks interesting.

Wish I could get into these types of games. They look epic but just not my thing.

Same here. I love the base-building RTS games, but can't seem to get in to the unit-management only games. And yet for some reason, I continue to buy them on Steam sales.

And Dirty Bomb would have been better because people like it dirty.

Hard to search for your game's name when the NSA keeps showing up for questioning.

I can't get into the trial. I have a Guild Wars account and I clicked the option to link Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2, but it says only one account per email address is allowed and I just have one email.

Email them. I had a similar problem. It took a bit of back and forth with them, but they finally linked my emails for me.

I'm playing, more or less. I have no fancy armors. My largest box is 12 slots. I'm out of boosters. I should buy another copy and start over with the goodies.

Someone has kidnapped the real EA. I hope "we're adding our older games to Steam" is the next announcement.

One program to launch 3 games I don't want to play? Hell yeah, sign me up!

4 games. Hearthstone will have it. Should have chat someday also, but not yet. I can see it as somewhat useful since it lets you bypass the login screen for 30 days. Dunno if I want it always running just for that though.

With the stupid 'killing monsters' tag line it's probably a browser game tie-in or something like that.

This is my guess. Didn't they do this with their last Witcher browser game?

My main concern health wise is eye strain.

It causes your eyes to focus at infinity; it's very relaxing. When it comes to eye strain, it's actually better than a monitor. As for sweating, I only start sweating if I get motion sickness, which means it's time to take it off. Doesn't happen as much anymore, but when I first got it I could only make it about 5 - 10 minutes. My IPD is also smaller than average, so the focus isn't real great which adds to the sickness. They're supposedly going to put the eye cups on sliders to address that.

As for the weight, it's not very heavy. I can use it an hour without any problem. My headphones are probably about the same weight. One of the issues is wires. There's so god dammed many of them. 1 for Rift, 1 for headset, 2 for Hydra, 1 for mouse.

I wouldn't have an issue wearing it in front of my wife, however I would be extremely hesitant to wear it around strangers, just because you have no idea what is going on outside the VR. I don't foresee that situation arising much though, at least for me.

I was playing Doom a couple nights ago with mine on, and my wife came in to say goodnight. She didn't know what to do, so she just leaned down and gave me a kiss on the forehead. In Doom I was killing a room of demon jumping things. The hairs on the back of my neck stood on end and I was seriously freaked out. I told her not to do that ever again. I can't imagine using it with asshole roommates. Not without a lock on the door anyway.

Also, if you are farsighted, you're fine. If you're nearsighted, you can switch to the B or C cups and hope they work. They _say_ you can wear glasses in it, but I don't see how. They nearly touch my eyes at the farthest setting and I have no glasses. Hopefully they increase the distance slightly for the consumer version, as well as letting us change the physical IPD of the cups.

What makes Rift different to other VR headsets we've seen come and go over the years? Is it just hype? Because it was a kickstarter?

Honestly, its just the first to try at a reasonable price with modern display technology.

This. Other systems are thousands of dollars. They also usually require their own interface/cables/etc. The Rift just goes over a regular HDMI cable and the output has some shaders applied. It's fairly easy, which is why people are able to update older games to use it. And it does it for very cheap. The Rift wouldn't exist without the mobile market trying to one up each other.

Bring over Michael Abrash (from Valve) next. That'd be a winning team.
