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've spent how many years playing FPS games and still don't realise that FPS games by design can't support head tracking as aiming is done with the gun - there is no head in FPS games.

Oculus is as niche as TrackIR. If not more so due to the expensive.

Too much Vodka, Komrad?

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.

Funny, but almost looks staged. How stupid could he be not to simply paddle?

No real plans here. Alcohol is stocked, no need to go out.


Ditto. Kid is with Wife's family in NY. It just me, the dog, the cat, and a bar's worth of alcohol. I sense takeout food and Fallout 4 in my future.

Wait for the PC or PS4 version. XBone had awful frame issues during cut scenes and certain action sequences. Nothing says XBone like 15 fps!

You ever hear of the Chernobyl disaster? This level of incompetence is comparable.

Aaaand right about that point everyone in the room stopped listening to your crazy ramblings.

Hehe, yup. OMG, a video game delivery system accidentally exposed some peoples' private information! This is the same level of incompetence that caused a nuclear reactor to melt down and kill 31 people and poison thousands of others! A video game delivery system hiccup is just as bad as the SECOND WORST NUCLEAR DISASTER IN HISTORY!

Get a grip.

So MS paid for a 2 month exclusivity? I'm sure that sold a ton of extra consoles...

Technically MS paid for 1 year exclusivity. Their Xbox One had it first, and now PC (MS Windows) gets it. Sony has to wait until holiday 2016.

It was the only game I was saving my Bone for. I played it and beat it and sold it and the console. I didn't 100% it like the last one because there are some damn annoying bugs that will hopefully be worked out when the PS4 version comes out.

For about a decade and a half I worked with all the major telcos on a regular basis. They were all pretty bad. And it wasn't just the people answering the phones. I'd say about half of the "techs" were clueless. Lost count of the times I had to explain their network to them. Saving direct numbers to competent techs is the only way I managed to save my sanity.

Lol, don't get me started. I worked for Time Warner for a bit as a customer service rep. 90% of the reps have no clue how to do most of their job. I had the bonus of being an IT guy so Roadrunner "techs" were at my desk all the time asking me how to fix their problems too.

Not that our customers were any better, mind you.

I see this as a minor blip. Every company is full of incompetent morons all trying to do their best to fuck everything up for the small percentage of competent people who work there and hold everything together. You can think otherwise if it makes you feel better.

Just watching it again though. God, can you imagine in a few years UNcharted, AC, Tomb Raider in VR? Doing the Eagle dives from AC would make your heart jump up into your throat, lol.

You seem to be willfully forgetting that the raison d'etre of Tomb Raider is 3rd person.

Wow. Beatnik

Looks like Uncharted in VR.

I agree with the MindStalker, though. If you've never climbed, using just your hands may seem plausible. Unlike Uncharted (even though I love it) you will need to rest your weight on your feet as well or your arms will give out in short order. And ropes, harness, chalk, belay, carabiners, crams...yeah, you kinda need that stuff to do it safely.

I guess that's Climb 6?

Am I the only one/1 who didn't like BF2142? I always liked BF's 1942, 2, V, etc.

No, I also did not like it.
But I'm a weirdo who thinks Vietnam was the best one.
Then 1942, and then BF2.

2142 was OK, but not my favorite by far. Vietnam was great until they "fixed it" one day and killed the game.

Considering I have paid for cable one time in my life to watch Farscape, I would say it's not faster than I think. (One season of Farscape to try to keep it on the air cost me more than the bluray set of the whole show.)
