But remember that Roberta was responsible for the King's Quests. Quest for Glory was by the Coles. And of course Space Quests by the two guys from Andromeda.

That said... I highly doubt that Microsoft will make them switch engines, especially if TES6 is already in mid development.

Maybe Chris Roberts can teach them how it's done. Actually, maybe he shouldn't.

John Carmack seems quite happy about it.


It may allow him to work on the open source id games like doom and quake (for Quest VR). He mentioned in one of his VR hallway Q&As that he couldn't because Zenimax still hated him.

Carmack tweet:
"Great! I think Microsoft has been a good parent company for gaming IPs, and they don't have a grudge against me, so maybe I will be able to re engage with some of my old titles."

I don't get what's going on with that. There are cards on eBay with dozens of bids and currently sat at over £50,000 ($64,000). Is it fraud / money laundering or just really rich people that must have it now?

Maybe people are purposely bidding very high with no intention of paying. As an FU to the seller who can't sell it until it is relisted.

Well, not exactly a decade, more like four years. The Oculus Rift consumer version only came out in 2016.

For an early Half-Life VR fix you can now play HL1 (Lambda1VR) which has been ported to the standalone oculus quest headset.

With the bonus being that you can now connect the quest to the PC and also play PC VR games on it. In theory that includes the next HL:A as well.

...Anyway, the comparison is complete suckage.....

I know, you're right. I can't really remember stuff that happened that long ago. It was a feeble attempt to poke at those complaining.


But having invested in most of the oculus vr hardware since the DK1 days I'm kinda biased.

Reminds me of when Quake 3 was one of the first games requiring a GPU.
There was lots of wailing and gnashing of teeth by those not willing to buy an expensive hardware device just to play a game.

I'll wait a few days for people to beta test this.

Just yesterday a Logitech options update made my Logitech mouse disappear from the options and GHub software. The mouse works (not well, though) but is no longer shown on the list of logitech hardware.
I tried everything (uninstall, re-install, use a different usb port, install the software with admin rights, and so on) but nothing worked. The mouse does work with standard microsoft drivers but it feels VERY different. If there isn't be another update to fix this very soon, I will go for a new mouse - but not one made by Logitech.

I had a similar issue. I received my mxmaster 3 mouse yesterday and the logitech software that I then installed did not pick up the unified dongle. After about 15 minutes the software updated itself and then everything started working properly.

Streaming just removes one kind of cheating. The user can still run a program on his machine that monitors the stream and controls the mouse aiming etc.

Am I missing something?

All electricity vanished, yet we see them with a laptop connected to a satellite dish at the end?

So there still is electricity then?

I understand your frustration, assuming you have a vive.

But if Oculus didn't pay them then there wouldn't be any VR at all for the game.

I had my nvidia card (970) connected to my home theater amp/system (7.1) using the pass-through hdmi.

It sounded great until I tried playing Rocksmith. There was a hugely noticeable delay from plucking the guitar string and hearing it on the speakers.
So it was back to using the onboard realtek.

All VR needs is a decent Minecraft port to succeed, literally.

Well there is already unofficial VR support for that in Minecrift on the dk2.

As for mobile, John Carmack added VR support to the mobile edition of minecraft, now we are just waiting for Microsoft to release it.
