Or, a killer app/game that can be the standard bearer for VR. (looking at you, Half-Life 3)

I know that is used regularly and no I'm not going to say I don't want that. Also stated by several is the lack of content, but to me it seems like there is a lot of content for such a new platform.

Yes many are short and many are still figuring out what works or not. It also doesn't always have to be about Native VR games and on your feet V. I've read most still use their headsets in a sit down environment and revert back to standard games playing with the headset. That things that make you queezy at first, tend to fade after using the headset for a period of time.

I've stated for a while I'm cool with shorter games that are priced accordingly in any setting. That the game is over before the games mechanics are old and tired.

Overall I'd say VR game availability is in pretty good shape at this early stage. You don't have to go all that far back in video games that even when things weren't new, you really had to wait for content you wanted. Dry months...

Not to mention that shit like this splits up the community even before launch,

Oh yeah not directly this, but that is another reason I don't like long EA games...

Then when you buy the final release you find out many have long come and gone because they played the shit out of it already. Yeah that is a concern of mine.

I just want to know when the AIB RX 480 cards will be here en masse! I need a new card!

I've read that there is a bitcoin bot that is buying them all up, can't state if true or not but everyone seems to be having issues getting a hold of one. It seems several have been moving over to 1060's due to this.

----------------

In regards to VR. Yep, time to bring the price down and start working towards the next model. That is how electronics work. I'm totally for VR, but they are at the point if it is true that the ball is in their court now to make it more attractive. I was looking at early spring 2017, but something has to have changed by then, like a $200 reduction or better gear.

I'm going to go with if it is good and if it is priced right that I will buy it. Sure it would have been better being out years ago, I guess the benefit now is a better looking game at a lower price, I think.

I've had more fun playing this game in the past four days than I've had on any other finished retail game this generation.

Game is as good as finished for me.

Laffman

To me that is why there are two sides...

User controlled persistent server survival games are fun! To me they are the replacement for the boring MMO scene. LET ME REPEAT: USER CONTROLLED SERVERS!!! You know the thing we've fought and lost in the FPS world many years ago, we had that and now we don't for the most part.

I get the "don't support this trend"
I don't like EA games taking forever.
I'm not a fan of EA games with paid DLC.

But there are many that have poured 100's of fun hours into these types of games that aren't made by top publishers (wasn't Epic or someone working on one?), the game for $25 has paid for itself over and over and more content just adds to the fun in which I'm sure they'll get 100's of more hours. So the $$$ to fun ration if very high in this genre. Because you may not be swept up by one, you are basically jumping into someone else fun business and telling them how things are to be done. Not a fan of that.

My main thing I want from these games is to get out of EA so they have to maintain Save and Mod compatibility. To often it's a start over again from scratch with saves and if you are modding, a total redo as the old things don't work. This gets tiresome.

I get both sides, but I also can't argue with those that have and will continue to have massive hours of satisfaction.

I personally love the genre, just wished the one's I want to play were final. I've requested to finalize their games and simply make a version 2 available in a couple years with the new stuff.

ARK Dev regarding early access DLC:

"Your entire post screamed of rage because you are too cheap to pony up 20 dollars for a game worth 60 which we undercharged for in the first place"

Never backed this because I didn't believe. Not sorry yet.

Yeah, this game is very nearly impossible for me to ever feel sorry for. If they deliver it will be worth the retail price.

This is going to be episodic, correct? So they only need to put together a 3-5 hours of content out of the gate. That will be a whole nother round of bitching when it comes.

All it takes is the CPU manufactures to quit making chipset drivers that will work with older OS's, and that's all she wrote.

And that has always happened, now are they stopping it earlier than usual?

This is fucking bullshit of the highest order and these devs should be shunned by the community.

They are on Steam.

It isn't worth it to CBS for $1 or $2. They say they have a million now paying $6. Actually I love the idea of each station allowing the streaming of all their content on demand new or old, but it has to cost something and $1-$2 won't be worth their time. So are we in a pickle?

Yeah I'm not sure about where the EA is on this thing.

But a little checking they are saying this is the assets from a long promised game called Chaos Chronicles that was never released. It is unsure if the developers here obtained the assets or they have been stolen...

I see now we are going health problems if someone doesn't like something. Gaming isn't good for one's waist line. Monitors aren't particularly good for eye sight. Keyboards can be bad for wrists. Make sure to keep proper posture in that seat.

It's definitely a good area to explore. I'm sure they know what will be considered acceptable or not and if they aren't close they won't sell it. It will also be nice if a wireless headset can also be wired if you choose, hope that will be optional with these, best of both worlds depending on need at the time. In a sitting experience I'm fine powered up via wires and most likely those would be the longer sessions as well.

Nvidia should be doing more of this, the best way to sell your hardware is make things that really show it off.

Listen these guys are fighting for their lives and are trying to figure out whatever could work. Obviously these forever early access survival games are a dime a dozen, so they went another direction as well and I guess it paid off some.

UPS and USPS are the ones who should be worried. FedEx's niche is overnight. They own the overnight space.

With the proliferation of Amazon distribution centers, more and more Amazon trucks will be on the road.

USPS has nothing to worry about, they will be subsidized in whatever they may need. No one customer of Fedex's represents more that 3% of revenue. But yes, the overall volume is going to be dominantly short area ground, which means regional carriers play a large roll in this as well and they are cheaper than Fedex or UPS on average.
