Goodbye MLG.
They could have stood on their own and continued as they had for 14 years prior signing big time deals but remaining independent.
Now they're destined to swirl down Kotick's drain.

Minecraft doesn't use voxels, there are other similar survivor/sandbox games that do though.

Do pre-orders come with a "Rift" puke bucket?

I've thrown the DK2 on like 30+ people. Never seen anyone get sick. That includes old folks too.


I'm not sure how they can overcome the fact that your visual input and your inner ear are not telling your brain the same information. Not saying I don't believe you, I just don't grok how it could NOT make you sick to be in full VR dogfight mode while your butt is firmly planted in a stationary chair.

My other concern would be eye strain - yeah, I've read all about how it tricks your brain into thinking it's looking into the distance, but the fact is there's still screens strapped to your face. The focal distance is still way, way inside the two to three feet that conventional wisdom has recommended you keep your monitor.

And yeah, I know it uses optics to mimic something like meter or so for focal depth, but I still wonder if that is really the same thing.

I hope this is the true VR we were all promised back in the '90s, but I'll let you fine folks be the early implementers on this one.

I could definitely see eye strain / headaches being an issue. But motion sickness... if you're fine with FPS video games, driving in a car, being on a boat... you're going to be fine on VR is my guess. Even people who aren't fine with those things don't seem to get sick. But what do I know, I've got to be ill or extremely drunk to puke.

There was no DRM in the 90s. You meant copy protection. Copy protection now is only a part of DRM.

Copy protection is a form of DRM. You nearly say so yourself.

Was wondering when they were going to get up to this, cross-platform even.

That should give cheaters something to have fun with.

Halo would most likely bring more people kicking and screaming into the Windows 10 sheepfold.

I thought about Halo, but I figured that boat had sailed for most PC gamers. The time to make Halo a PC franchise was 10 years ago.

Close, but the same move was done for Halo 2 and Vista 12 years ago.

Your brain called. It said you left it at a party last night.

Car - means of transportation
Gun - means of killing

Yep, absolutely comparable. I drove my gun last night, it was awesome.

Understand? A gun can ONLY be used for violence (violence includes harassment and intimidation, by the way, not only shooting). A car can be used to kill, harass and intimidate, too, but that it is definitely by far not its main purpose.

What's with all the personal attacks? Nobody can debate anything without name calling and bullshit. If your argument is so weak that they only thing you can do is a personal attack, you've already lost.

The reverse is also true here. Your last two replies have had no substance, only complaining about name calling.

What patently moronic bullshit will CliffyB come up with to unnecessarily justify his business decisions tomorrow? Perhaps he'll suggest that high framerates are somehow the reason for confusing DLC preorder packages? The sky's the limit!

Wait, are they not the same person? Given how most of the time when I see either one of those names, it's attached some nonsense like this, I feel I can be forgiven for that. :p

It's insane how many time this mistake has happened here.

I want to be wowed by Rift, but this seems like the worst game to do that. Oh, an N64 looking platformer! Whee!

Yeah, I'm thinking more like Fallout 4 in VR, not Mario.

It was announced a few weeks ago that Eve: Valkyrie will also be bundled with Oculus.

Also price speculation that the OR could be $500 or more.

Pricing is fine, about what you expect for a next gen console. Until I see some finished games that wow me and make me want to buy it, however, I wouldn't pay even $100 for it.

I just looked through their Wiki list and I don't really see anything that would make me buy one just yet. Half-Life 2 is supported. Great. Did you re-do it with hi-rez textures and improved poly-counts? No? Why the hell would I pay $500 to see graphics from over a decade ago?

Geez, you want to sell a buttload of these? Make Fallout 4 compatible. Make World of Warcraft compatible. (Bash on it all you want, millions of people play and I bet a bunch would hop on the VR bandwagon to plug into Azeroth in VR.) Borderlands? The new Wolfenstein?

Everything they have so far seems like a tech demo.

You realize this is display hardware right?

You do realize that hardware vendors constantly hit up software vendors to help move their products, right? I mean, you are aware that even though the PS4 is hardware, Sony pushes hard for developers to make software for it? I mean, come on with that comment.

You mentioned HL2 and said, "Did you re-do it with hi-rez textures and improved poly-counts?" I assume by "you" you're referring to Oculus VR since that's what the rest of the post is directed at. And no, they wouldn't do that to HL2 since they're primarily making something akin to a monitor. If they were making a video card you might have more of an argument because yes video card developers work with software makers. And this isn't to say that Oculus isn't working with software developers, just that demanding that they make all these games compatible themselves is a bit absurd.

Seeing it for a third time tonight. We have these MJR "Epic" screens around us that are actually bigger than IMAX. They use 2 4K projectors.

Just amazing. You'd think after the I dunno, 100th thing launched into space they would have decided to make some kind of international law to say that you must have a plan to remove space debris for everything you launch. At the very least after the cold war.

Sure it would to the cost of something already expensive as hell, but unless someone has a very clever way of dealing with space junk, I'd imagine it would have been a lot cheaper.

It isn't necessary. Even with 20,000 pieces up there the odds of hitting one are very very tiny. Take 20,000 cars and spread them evenly across the surface of the planet... it's more likely to encounter one of them randomly then it is the space junk which have another dimension of spread.

Sure some of the orbital routes are more common than others but scientists can adjust and use slightly newer/different paths. Also all of these things are tracked. The really tiny debris would be more problematic if it's not being tracked but also less likely to make contact with something.

A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back are masterpieces. The plot progresses naturally from character motivations. There are no blatant prequel imitations or out-of-the-Blue coincidences the way there are in TFA.

You know why this is right?

He seems to imply that it was turned up for the demo and that it normally wouldn't be like that. All though that raises the question, who the fuck thought that would be a good idea. Or maybe it actually was like that but they're already planning on fixing it.

he should also poop often and die forever - but he wont because HES A VIDEO GAME

I realise this is a video game; my idea was for it to be a *better* video game.

Pooping really should be a feature in more games though.
