I'm going to be a sourpuss about this and assume it won't innovate on: both sides have same weapons (hundreds), vehicles will have an annoying 'level up' progression, limited factions ; but will be a visual spectacle and a successor to 2142.

These videos/interviews are really cool over at Arstechnica. I hope they land an interview with developers of X-Wing, TIE Fighter, and the old MechWarrior games.

I don't get people's obsession with 'modern' combat in games or unlock progression for that matter which would have been better left out in this game. Imagine a bfv where the weapons were actually locked to both sides (asymmetrical balance) and weapons/tech only appearing on maps for the correct years. Or more factions, French, Dutch, Italian, Russian, Finnish. Ayssmetrical map balance (invasion of France, french receive Char Bis b1 heavy tanks, Germans only get panzer 2, 38t, 3 (max 37mm), 4 (max 75mm short barrel).

Instead there are hundreds of guns (for some reason that can have Holo sights), very little nation's, no actual year by year showing progression of weapons/vehicles to use. Quantity over Quality.

And very few of those are actually good, because said games treat the Vietnam War with the 'Murica Meant No Harm' nonsense, glossing over the realities of why. Imo, the only one that ever depicted it in a realistic sense, for an SP fare, was the Vietcong game. I certainly don't trust them to create a 'CoD' showing it a realistic/truthful sense, but rather the usual bombastic Michael Bay plotline in video game format.

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.

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.
