I think this project has made quite a substantial contribution to the ruining of the credibility of the crowdfunding concept. Well done, Inafune!

If they're going to claim video games and other media cause violence, can I claim day time talk shows cause stupidity? At least video games don't try to pass fictitious entertainment off as reality.
Yes, you can claim whatever you want to claim, just like them. But the difference is, they got you to watch their stupid claims. You bowed to their will. They achieved exactly what they set out to achieve. You would do well to remember that.

I'd rather waste battery than use a Microsoft web browser... energy well spent.

News Comments > Overwatch Roadmap

Odd, it's always worked flawlessly for me. And it makes it incredibly easy to play with a group of friends together. More than any other FPS I've ever played. You can join a group even while they're playing, spectate, and then when they finish a round it'll automatically find a new server so everyone can play together as a group. It's totally effortless. Seems like most FPS games make you fight tooth and nail to play together, and then you still end up stuck on opposite teams half the time.

They deserve every penny. With Overwatch and all this cool VR stuff happening, I still find myself wanting to play Rocket League more than anything.

In any rate, UK is not perfect by any means but calling it an Orwellian nightmare by somebody from the good ol` US of A is a borderline farce. Lol...dude...have some perspective. I don`t have to worry about getting thrown in jail/shot on sight for small possession, jaywalking, or in general being alive. The cops are actually helpful most of the time.
Do you believe everything you see online?

This game is so awesome. Still totally loving it after playing it to death. Always new and fun stuff happening. And the devs just get it. They will no doubt continue to be showered in mountains of cash as a reward for that.

If they can hit that date, they oughta do well. The Rift might actually start shipping to a significant number of people by then.

Hm... 6 to 8 years, and the vr hype will be gone, just like 3d. Both have their merits, but it comes down to software/movies using the new technique cleverly instead of just doing a cheap conversion/programming job to sell each ticket/game license for a few $$$ more.
Yes, the VR hype will be gone, just like the 3D hardware acceleration hype is gone. Did people say "oh, 3D hardware acceleration is nice, but it's just a gimmick - we're going to go back to CPU-based rendering now"? I don't think so.

VR is an absolute game-changer for cockpit sims. Racing, flight, space, mech. I can never go back to a monitor and TrackIR setup for those sorts of experiences.

Are there other games where VR is kind of tacked on or forced? Sure. But that doesn't mean it's any less mind-blowing for cockpit sims.

The consumer version of the Oculus Rift (CV1) does not represent the bare minimum for acceptable VR. In my opinion, DK2 was close in many ways. With a little better ergonomics and maybe less screen door, they could've sold DK2 as CV1, and would've if it hadn't been for the FB buyout. The 75 fps of DK2 is plenty sufficient thanks to the low persistence. CV1 is going to be 90 fps which is overkill to be on the safe side in my opinion.

I think Playstation VR can definitely be lower quality than CV1 in many ways and still be a great success.

Never install software from a sizable hardware company, if you can avoid it. It's almost always terrible stuff.

A 980Ti is $600+. A 27"+ gaming monitor can easily go for $800+. Plenty of people are falling over themselves to buy that stuff. But VR is "stillborn" because of these prices? Starting prices, for the very first generation at that. Give me a break.

I saw auto-playing video ads on here on my phone the other day and was like ... ok, that's it, I'm done trying to browse this site on my phone. It was a nice read during lunch or whatever but I'll stick with a reddit app instead. Not only do the video ads make everything slower, but I only get 500MB of cellular data per month and having that wasted by stupid video ads is not acceptable.

In case anyone is wondering what kind of crappy phone I have that can't do ad-blocking ... it's a Windows Phone, Lumia 1020. Great camera and phone functionality, but that's about all it's got going for it at this point. The app situation is abysmal. Even Skype, owned by Microsoft for FIVE YEARS NOW, still runs like utter crap on it. But I digress.

lol @ the VR skeptics. Have any of you even tried a DK2? There's no going back to a monitor / TrackIR setup once you've made the leap to VR. I'll never race or fly on a flat screen again. And I'm looking forward to doing plenty of other stuff in VR beyond sims.
