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.
That's what worries/frustrates me. A delay until 2017 so that we can get the whole 50-ish episode base campaign at once? I'll put up with that. But if this delay happens and we still get the episodic probably-won't-be-finished-until-2018-2019 roll out, then I'm going to be livid.

Not going to preorder but it is very likely a day one buy for me if reviews are good!

24. Re: Wireless HTC Vive Plans Sep 2, 2016, 02:44 ViRGE
 
On the battery front, keep in mind that the Viva is powered over a single USB 3 port, which for basic power delivery is rated for a max of 4.5W. So a 20Whr battery, about twice the capacity as the battery in the phablet-sized Galaxy Note 5, would be enough to run the headset for a minimum of 4 hours. To that end a 20Whr battery isn't going to be tiny, but it would be easy enough to hang off of the back of the headset.

Did anyone else notice that these are all PS3 games?
Yes. The service is specifically for playing PS3 games on the PS4, and now Windows.

For the 25th anniversary, shouldn't it be 25K copies instead of 20K?

Nope. Roomscale aside (you can really only do that with the Vive but it comes with a shitload of its own issues), the OR has generally gotten more favorable reviews especially in terms of image quality.
I was just going to say the same thing. Both are nice in their own ways, but when it comes to IQ the Vive has a smaller sweet spot and overall more chromatic aberration than the Rift. It's the lenses.

Good game. Anyone who doesn't already own it should get it for free now and give it a go.

That whole ad goes from hilarious to disturbing in a heartbeat. It's funny when it's a gag, then it gets worrying when you find out that the Nosulus is real.

Your 'intimate personal massager' cough is spying on you

a U-shaped vibrator that can be controlled via Bluetooth using a remote control or a smartphone app.

Y'know, I'm kinda thinking that Bluetooth for a vibrator is probably unnecessary. Aren't your hands already predisposed?

The person on the other end of the Bluetooth is generally not the one wearing the device. It's not about convenience, it's about being remote-controlled. Probably not in private, either.
Exactly. It's the We Vibe for a reason.

The year: 2023

Star Citizen Beta stardate 700.54
We've completed our 19th round of siphoning 314 million out of these carbon based life forms know as Huuu Mons.

We've successfully completed our 12th venture with another non finished entity know as: Shroud of the Avatar. A new steampunk hat will only set you back a meer 20 bucks. I must ponder, How much more can I fleece before the gig is up.

Meanwhile, over at No Man's Sky 2..

Just to be a pedant, it's technically Hew-mon

Soooooooo, their olive branch for this nightmare consisting of a 10 year old game that currently sells for $40 is to release the DLC FOR FREE. Shouldn't the DLC have already come with the purchase for that price?

This is A typical, how else do you get the fish to bite on the shinny lure if you dont make them think they are getting something for free, when it reality its really not.
Don't ascribe to malice what can be explained with stupidity. They clearly took an old version of the game and rushed it out for PC. Since the DLC characters wouldn't be active in that build, it wouldn't have made it into the PC release either.

Farm simulation has gone from being a game to a genre

Seriously! Is there enough demand for different versions of farming sims?
Considering how well other farming sims seem to sell: probably.

Hooray! I've enjoyed my Vita and its native games, but now that we're in the twilight years of the console for anything besides Japanese imports (JPRGs & VNs) and the occasional indie, it's nice that it has been cracked open. Being able to throw on NES/SNES/GEN emulators will give it more to do.

$15 for one table? Damn that's expensive. Pinball Arcade is my goto pinball game. With actual Ballys, Williams and Gottlieb pinball machines. 21 tables in the first pack for $30.
Ditto. This looks very nice, I won't deny. But otherwise? PA's physics seem fine, it has a great selection of tables, and the graphics are respectable.

My point exactly. Only a thousand or so people streaming it. It used to be one of the top games on twitch, and now it ISN'T.

So, yeah, 19M Players, 18M inactive. Cool story.

Numbers pulled from asses notwithstanding, it's in the top 10 Steam games daily, so they're still doing better than most.
Indeed. It's a game you play, not a game you watch other people play. Plus the really short matches aren't conductive to a sustained viewing audience, seeing as how it's shorter than even Overwatch.
