Yep we look at big fancy take over of mankind with AI. Devious people, call them blackmarketeers are going to jump on AI before that takeover and wreck havoc, perhaps even to the point we can't get to the takeover step in the process. Because they always do, unstoppable tools for them will be like NEO is to the Matrix. We'll all be forced offline due to doomed inter-connectivity.


Maybe.

The blurb talks about the overall game improvements as well, as well as 28 updates to date. Not that I have it, I'll wait for release to judge.

I'll take it that isn't a sale for you then.

I told them to make a zombie survival moba, didn't listen. Something about they want to make the game they want to. Millennials...

I was wondering if they took the sandwich into space?

@Tipsy: Well, I think you would benefit more from a GTX 10 series upgrade than anything else since nVidia has that projection tech (SMP) in Pascal cards that the 980Ti does not have so VR gets a real nice boost.
A GTX 1080 or 1080Ti would be ideal to make a tangible difference because outside of VR the 980Ti and the 1070 are too close together in terms of performance.
The problem, of course, is that you can not buy a graphics card at the moment because of the stupid mining craze .


Are games taking advantage of this feature now?

I've been using my sons i5/1060, things have been running real well.

I'm in the middle now of setting up the second unit, download taking a couple hours for 1.x gig from Oculus, and it isn't on my end. SLOOOOOWWWW... I have a i7/1070, so we'll see if there is a noticeable difference in performance. Overall been impressed with the performance I've seen on my sons.

How on earth is it a noble job, or even necessary?

I just wanted to answer to state this doesn't deserve an answer.

The left siding Cutter just went on a whim, as far right as you can with this one.

The cameras can be on even when pissing, that would just be edited out for any public consumption, pun. Since cities and taxpayers lose millions in settlements and that damages local budgets when cops go well across the line, yeah cameras are part of the job now. It does suck, but your peers have made it so. All part of your choice on wanting the job or not.

But we'll have the Right simply defending cops to the nth degree, because it is a noble service they provide, it is, but you can't turn a blind eye, noble means they are noble in their actions as well, just not noble taking the job to begin with.

Those same people have no problem thinking any other countries cops are bad. But us... none whatsoever, we somehow just got all the good cops! Statistical articles are now showing it is a lot more than just some "bad apples" to. History also shows over and over how the decline in policing has led to a decline of their civilization, it is a position to easily be corrupt in, so you have to be cognizant with the lure of corruption all the same.

It is a noble job, but it isn't above scrutiny and justice if it is being abused. They are to be held at a higher standard based on the powers we have granted them. They know that going in. But mobs come in all shapes and sizes, get a police chief with their own agenda, they'll hire people to fit that agenda. That happens.

Poor Tolkein must be spinning in his grave right about now, 'What in god's name are they doing to my work?!'

Of all your thoughts, this maybe the craziest. You think Tolkein is somehow alive in his grave and is getting a signal of whats going on in the world. partial /s

Whatever he thinks it will be... it isn't all encompassing. We have an abundance of devs out there to make all mediums flourish. If EA went full on stream, so what. If you don't like it, don't buy their stuff, many already are adhering to that. We still have 1000's of other choices. So EA go ahead and do whatever you think you should, it is your biz and I have all the options I need.

I was going to say, hard to believe aliens came all this way to get beaten down by fireworks. But they've already been taken down by water once.

Yes this looks craptastic, overall VR not gimmick.

Those complaining about the graphics have clearly not played anything in VR. Your brain buys in, whole-hog, no matter how it looks.

This. VR gives you a 360 3D world and that is something a flat screen can't give you and if you don't think that is much, you are wrong. So if technically we take a step back in gfx fidelity a bit for devs and hw to catch up, what it gives in return is way more than you lost. Everything I've touched the gfx quality isn't even a consideration. The affect completely outweighs things like "look at that muddy texture".

The only people I'd say that wouldn't like this are people with possible eye problems, a head the size of a watermelon, an old poop that you've become and don't even know it, people against games, people against people in VR worlds. Otherwise, if nothing else it is a totally different option in your gaming belt to the likes we never seen before. It is as fresh as the first console, 3DFX & mouse-look, that fresh, everything I was hoping for.

Oh dear lord Horrorscope, have you not downloaded The Lab on Steam yet? Grab it and RecRoom. Both are free. The Lab has visuals that make you wonder WTF all these other devs are doing, as it's not only super detailed, but runs like a champ. Lots of little games in it.

RecRoom is THE multiplayer game for VR, don't let the cartooney look drive you away.


Just getting started and sharing it with Junior which means I'm the secondary user. May need to get a 2nd.

You need to adjust the headset properly. The weight of the unit should be on the top strap on top of your head.

Make sure that the "triangle" formed by the straps straddles over the point in the back of your head; the bottom of the side straps should sit near the base of your skull where it meets your neck. That should take the pressure off your face.

Thanks for the tip.

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.
