FWIW, VR is quite frankly fucking amazing.

Spend the $400 and get the Rift package if you have the rest of the computing hardware to back it up.

It is. I'm a believer after 2 days hands on.

Haven't tried a lot yet, but some of the mesh/modeling tools are mind-blowing.

Subnautica day 1 playing made me a bit woozy, day 2 much better. Just getting used to the motion while sitting. It isn't an immediate oucher, but I felt the fatigue day 1. Sort of like DLP projectors and rainbows, takes a mind adjustment. I went from Xbox controller to Nostromo/Mouse for day 2, I don't think that had anything to do with it other than I like option 2 better. But wow what an effect being under water in a 360 3D world. Never played prior, so still learning, but nice!

The Nvidia Arcade thing lots of ehhh in it, but the whack a mole, punch punch and especially the arrow shooting targets games, just show how real the motion can be and how perfect it simulates. We've never had simulation like this with weapons like this, just great simulation with things like flying (stick) and racing (wheel), but now in 360 3D. But shooting that bow, was real, pulling back same motion, looking down the sites, right on. Swinging that mallet, again real, whatever I did, the screen did. Man dungeon hacks are going to be awesome in the future.

Big Screen - what I talked about yesterday, neat af.

Some scenic tourist demo's very nice.

Still working with non-vr games to see how well the can play on the headset. Mixed and perhaps better ways of doing it that I don't know yet.

It does weigh down on the pressure points on the front of your head. Luckily, the front headset can tilt just enough where I can move the pressure point from forehead to nose and it is needed. But yeah, we need better balanced and/or lighter units.

The tracking, dead nuts.

So much more to try, there is a shit load of content to. It's what 3DGX was to PC gaming back in the day. And those against it, if not for a technical issue with one's eyes or something very personal, well congrats you just became your parents who didn't like video games when you fell head over heals for them. We should be championing this, because this is the way out of the same game over and over for the mid-term.

2D screens, yep not good.

But in 3D, one might be surprised, that depth going down corridors you feel it.

Im just tripin balls with this vr stuff. With steam big screen i can pick many places to be in. Right now in a theater room front row. In front of me blues on what id say is a 180" projector (i have a 102" non virtual projector for comparison), this this thing is huge, browsing blues and youtube. To the left of me i have a floating keyboard, menu screen and for the hell of it a 40" curve screen cloned and floating. Everything very functional. Been mighty impressed, getting that run don't walk vibe going. Working on some screenshots.

This does look pretty kewl, but I can see now that this game is going to end up costing players a lot of money after release because of the card packs being required to play. They will turn this game into a pay to win game.

Thanks my biggest grip and why I wont buy into this.

It's a one man team, I don't think he's gearing it like that, could be wrong.

I just went rift for the price and bundle. Each seemed to have some pros and cons, i just washed it all out as equal enough, so the price was the reason, been my main reason ive waited.

Ive been the secondary user so far due to overall excitement levels in da house. What i did see was really nice and so far so good, nofeeling woozy, but it is still early. On top of games mentioned, ill add racing and elite to the list of gets.

Never heard of this. Too bad the reactions of you guys imply this is garbage. Looked great to me

No. My question wasn't implying garbage. I was merely confused why an MMO that had a rocky launch, falling population, and finally closure would come back? Typically when a game is closed or canceled, it doesn't come back.

In 2006, while a reviewer for GameIndustry.com, I was given a heavily scripted press tour of D&L. To my editor, I expressed concerns that D&L wasn't ready for a review because the tour was too scripted to understand what the game is like truly. The decision was reached to not proceed forward with a write up until after the game's launched.

Is this even the same game? Or it seems it has been reworked into something different. What I hear, like Ark, 30% complete and feels like it. Was that the old D&L?

D&L died a long time ago. Why is it back?

That is what I was wondering and I love how they try to stay away of the stigma of what is now MMO's, no mention here. EA's a mmo to vs Beta. Or is this something else now?

Re: Amazon Prime Day breaks record; sales grew by more than 60 percent

I have to agree with Cutter on this one. I have looked at what was offered on the last two Prime Day sales and saw nothing worth all the free hype the media gives this. Not sure anyone risks life and limb for Prime Day like they do Black Friday. But you won't be rewarded for all the lost time you spend browsing through the pages of crapola. Computer

I get your point, but Amazon gets all the free hype via the media they want for passing gas.

You and your tech demos, you don't even know the state of VR gaming, you haven't been interested in it from the start. I will say a $200 Wireless set sounds very good, what I've been waiting for, better and cheaper. My current order, is under review. I wonder if they sold out of their allotment, my initial guess until I hear back. I'll also assume the $200 doesn't come with the controllers, but if you can add those to it, ok enough.

That's so idiotic when people buy into these marketing scams. It's like Black Friday. There are literally dozens of better sales throughout the year but people risk life and limb and insane crowds because they believe the hype.

Do you happen to have metrics on what you state? I don't doubt you, would love to see it.

Update:

So I ordered a Rift the day after the sale came about, $400 for the kit.

I have now rec'd an email that said the order was cancelled and that is it. You can contact us...

Going to the forum that has happened to others as well, we are all awaiting a response, I don't think anyone has one yet.

So thoughts are:
Supplies were very limited, very.

That people are very willing to jump into VR when the price point is right.

We're here, we just need a square.

So with that in mind... maybe it isn't so dead, just has to be cheaper, more like this, but I can still see cheaper.

Yep 7800 is a disappointment for sure.

Reviews like this also make me rekindle the idea that many in the pc world state processor doesn't matter, i5 does the same job, we are GPU bound. Then I read an article that has tons of benches in it, using a 1080ti, and at 1080P game performance is definitely affected by CPU.

Sort of just stuck in equality for everyone where race/gender etc mean nothing to me, I have my own little world I dabble in. Realize taxes creates a society to begin with and has afforded us a lot of amenities, I guess that others just think just poof it happens.

There is no reason to believe anything from Trump and his cronies, once again and the strongest case yet, Jr gave up the ghost that he was out looking for info and colluding with Russia to affect the vote. His words equal just that, his Hanity interview he states hey if I can get info about an opponent, yes I would do it. Well when it is a foreign adversary that is illegal and it is the whole thing that has been discussed for a long time now. They said over and over nothing happened, it happened, they admit, they knew, but they put all of us through a long lie... so why I'm a believing anything from them? Like the 6 million illegal votes. He dreamed up this whole fake news schtick that has divided us, all to try to hide his collusion, this was all to muddy the waters so we couldn't figure it out. He's a total crook. If he has a truth in there is doesn't matter at this point, we wouldn't know which one it is from the liar.

Yeah im not saying I'm against free/g, I have some money but I'm also pretty frugal. What is the main reason why 60hz non-sync sucks? Screen tearing. With just 144hz screens, that alone makes it at least for me disappear. To me the free/g stuff makes a lot more sense on a 60hz panel as these faster panels take care of it now by shear refresh speed. I typically run unsyncd. A 144 unsyncd has a little less latency than even adaptive free/g if you were to measure it, very secondary concern though. I only vsync my 144 ONLY if the game runs noticeably hot and lock it at 72 frames. Non-gaming it's great to.
