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.

Very awesome news. With how quiet he has been lately with regards to Oculus, some of were wondering if there had been a falling out. Glad to see this was the plan.

Also, Doom BFG is pretty damn awesome with the Rift. First time a game has actually made me feel uneasy (in a scared way).

Kickstarted the other game and got this one with it. However, Steam was showing Beta still. If anyone has the same issue, login to Larian's website. Under the kickstarter tab you can find a key to the full game (Steam, GOG and I think directly from them). Kinda disappointed they didn't include the single player part in the beta, but meh. Looks fun and it's not like there's a shortage of games while waiting for it.

Now to finish the 12 gig download.

I loved Rage and would very much like to play a Rage 2.

Dunno if loved it, but I enjoyed it enough. For Rage 2, they need to get rid of the damn invisible walls though and make the shooting bits more open. Maybe spend some time making a few more enemies to shoot at. And the story could use some improvement. I really don't know why I bothered helping people in Rage. They were all assholes.

Basically take Rage 2 and make it like Fallout 3.

Hopefully they follow GW2. Let me pay for the game and include a lot of stuff with it, but then sell a few other perks to fund it. That way I have no pressure to login if I want to play something else.

Somehow i doubt rift gained 600k subs directly from wow.

599,999. I went to GW2.

I'll return to WoW with the next expansion. I really want them to announce a new Warcraft RTS though. The story has gone stale since Arthas was defeated.

F.E.A.R. Online will focus on several team combat modes spanning over ten ominous maps packed with grotesque details such as still-twitching bodies hanging from meat hooks and messages smeared in blood.

If there's one thing I do while playing an MP shooter, it's stop to admire the scenery.

By counting every EA account and forum registration ever made since 2002 to now.

Which includes me since I had an EA account back in the day. I've never installed Origin though, and yet I count as a user.
