This Woman Accidentally Turned Herself Into A Potato For A Video Meeting And Couldn't Figure Out How To Fix It. I keep getting teammates who do that in-game.

I've turned into a potato since I started WFH two weeks ago.
I need to start working out again.

Try HasFit on youtube, one of the best at home fitness channels I've found. Been following their monthly fitness program for about a year with definite results. Really nice, positive couple that help motivate you while you follow along with what they are doing. All you'll really need are some different weight dumbbells (2 or 3 different weights as you go up in difficulty) and maybe a cowbell.

For those of you with games to play, I suppose now is the best time to do so especially if you're stuck at home. I've transitioned to work at home.

I started Doom 2016 for the first time yesterday and also completed Doom 1, Doom 2, and Final Doom for the first time this year. Doom 2016 seems to play for frantically as far as the combat goes, I was very slow and plodding while playing those older Dooms to conserve health/armor/ammo.

I want to act like in real life, or very close to it, in a VR game. Thats the point.

Maybe one day they'll make some sort of brain interface VR :-D. But then what if someone hacks it so if you die in game you die for real :-O.

My main issue with VR is that you are standing there and you have to teleport around. It removes a lot of the freedom you would have with a traditional game. Seems like it would be a lot of stop-and-go gameplay and it would be easy to overwhelm the player if they had enemies rushing at you. Not to mention the fact that it takes you out of the immersion because you're not actually walking.

Just FYI, Half-Life Alyx supports three types of motive control options: Teleporting (exactly what it means), Shift ("zooming" from spot A to spot B), and Continuous (using the analog stick to make your character walk in any direction). It also supports "Room Scale" or smaller scale standing or sitting setups.

it will just become smaller & sleeker.

Hopefully more wireless too like the Oculus Link. Personally I'd like to invest in getting the Index, but I'm hoping the price goes down a little within a year, but I suppose that depends on the cost of the materials/tech used.

It states right in the announcement they reverse engineered it with an engine they've already been using for the other restored games like Turok and System Shock. The KEX engine. So they already have developed the tools to do it by their enhancement team.

I for one am glad they have been doing this for many old games. A non-issue.

Yes, the teleportation method is for motion sickness. It's difficult to trick the brain as the character moves, while you're standing still.

I'm actually somewhat looking forward to this. I enjoyed the first one more than I thought I would.

Nice, I've wanted to give it a try, but its hard for me to complete scary games.

What if they do both RTwP and TB as a gameplay option? It wouldn't be impossible considering PoE II added it.

That's just one game though. There are dozens of SW game still much better created back when, and in the time EA has had an exclusive license it's been pretty middling in comparison.

I read another article somewhere that talks about how alternative energy companies are tackling higher amounts of streaming. Apparently they are making a lot of headway in that field coming up with solutions to this issue.

The best HL1 TC mod, imo, is Paranoia. You play as a Russian GRU Major, it basically feels like Stalker or Metro as far as the story goes. Very good and freaky as hell. GManLives review.

Serious question: Are space aliens, or their half human offspring, Flat Earthers?

Serious Answer: Flat Earthers would be the least likely homo-sapien to be abducted for study. I do listen to a lot of Astonishing Legends, Our Strange Skies, and Somewhere in the Skies podcasts.

It is not a mainstream viewer friendly show. Very hard to get into if you have no idea what you are getting into.

I can see why that would be an issue for people. The original "Hexer" actually started with Geralt's childhood, showing him being mutated, and for the most part is in chronological order. The foundation they have in this season is a definitely a different structure for the primer, but I think the next seasons are going to hit their strides more with the Saga itself and more clearly defined objectives about why Ciri is wanted and why Geralt protects her.

The Witcher books really don't spend a lot of time explaining things, stuff just exists because that's how the world is. In comparison with the same fantasy stuff that exists in Lord of The Rings or Wheel of Time, the later spend a lot of exposition describing almost everything, which I found highly tiresome, but they were entertaining nonetheless.
