IL2:BoS (BoM BoK) has options so that engine management can be handled automatically etc if you don't want to fuss with that sort of thing. I'd go with IL2 (Actually I did) as it runs great in VR. X-Plane is awesome in VR too.

As far as I'm aware, the vive inbuilt mic becomes inoperative with the TPCAST..

Controls bad? Err OK.

Well then you have an easy decision to make. Don't buy it. You'll hate it.

The voice acting will be bad, the AI pathing will be very average, Character animation will be stiff and steam reviews will be scathing.

Every new X game they're like "This time it's really dynamic, with proper supply and demand!" And then there are like two stations that have supply and demand, and the rest just magically create supplies because if they had to run the entire universe on a logistics system, their AI would turn into a 1 frame per hour crawl.

Maybe this time they will have learned to code for multiple processors. (I'm not holding my breath...)


Yeah, and their much improved AI path finding which still remains..... Easily confused.

I was going by Steam reviews. They said the VR implementation was good, but to call it X Rebirth VR was a mistake, and overall the game was still BLEH.

Well its true that if you thought XR was "bleh" you probably wouldn't think the VR version was better in terms of content. There are people who enjoy XRVR believe it or not. Maybe we are just paid shills as someone else put it :). I just wish Egosoft would pay better!

Funny how some people have already suggested that X4 is going to just be XR2, but then there are suggestions XRVR isn't really XR. The usual gaming community nonsense.

I'm looking forward to X4 because I'm sure it will be a different beast to XR and I can enjoy the qualities of both. One feature of X games I love is SAVE and LOAD. I'm looking at you E:D!

They did a X Rebirth VR version which was apparently great VR wise, but was no where near what X Rebirth was in content. And after X Rebirth, I'll gladly wait another year or two after release to take a look at it (at a much cheaper price).

Yeah, I know. I commented on the VR version 2 posts above yours! Then again, I own both so no idea why you think the VR content is nowhere near the HoL version of Non-VR XR. Perhaps its the fact they reduced the clustering of stations and simplified the highways. They also reduced the need/ability to walk in stations but people whined about the need for that anyway. So now hiring is menu driven and no mini game required to find out skills. These were areas people bitched about anyway. Seems egosoft can't win.

Anyway, other than that, the functional content is all there.

Hmmm, I have every X game made. Started playing in 1999. Graphics look the best of the lot to me.

I'm currently playing Rebirth VR with the Vive. They simplified hiring and highways over time. No mini games involved. Sitting in the skunk and flying over the stations in VR is awesome. Getting physically out of my chair and walking around the cockpit felt surreal. Sort of thing I dreamed of the moment I sat in the Experimental Shuttle cockpit of X-BTF.

I'm using the Vive wands as the flight controls. They did a great job there. No need for my MSFFB2 joystick and surprisingly, I prefer it. This is from someone who plays flight sims and loves my MSFFB2.

We had a total solar eclipse here in Melbourne in 1975 I think. I watched it when it hit totality unaided. Still see 100% fine (other than the effects of age) Its an awesome sight to experience in person.

Steam tells me I got 60 hours of the "techdemo". Personally, I loved the challenges of the first one.

Now addicted to VR so not sure about getting the upgraded version for 13 USD.

Actually, Knuckles IS compatible with original lighthouses so you will NOT have to purchase additional lighthouses in order to use Knuckles.

You can use ReVive middleware in order to make some Oculus exclusive games compatible with the Vive. Its free. I use it for Dirt Rally and Robo Recall. Obviously buying from Oculus store typically means you can't refund and you are to a degree supporting Oculus Exclusive business model, but if you were considering buying a Rift anyway then you probably have no issues in that regard. It can impact the overall performance of the game though. Apparently Dirt Rally runs great with the rift, but I have to turn a few things to low when using ReVive for DR support (i7 3770K@4.5 + 1080)

I play all my sims with the Vive.

Assetto Corsa
rFactor2
IL2: Battle of Stalingrad
ETS2/American Truck
Elite Dangerous
Dirt Rally
RBR

Roomscale is great fun too (if you have the room)

Someday, someone will figure out a way to bring NOLF back too.

I absolutely loved NOLF 1. Was far less impressed with NOLF 2 (although to be fair, I can't exactly remember why )

50,000 hours of interviews? Even if he did 40 hours a week dedicated to nothing but interviews, thats 1,250 weeks. If he did this every week thats 24 solid years of interviews. No wonder he struggles to deliver on promises.

Even if KS is not fraud, what about the hype around getting micro transactions from the CUBE. Surely thats basic fraud.

Also... Did anyone else find this contradictory:
"Peter Molyneux: The excuse and, the excuse, and it is an excuse and I’ll put my hand up to it and we are going to make it now, the excuse is that we hadn’t finished the game. So you can’t do– it wasn’t an art book, it was a making of book, and we haven’t finished the game. But you know, Jack has got three terabytes of footage and we have now got someone called Connor who is going to be working on that book. Which is, we’ll probably have that out pretty soon."

First he says it can't be delivered until game is completed, then he says we'll probably have that out pretty soon. Maybe I missed something.

Obligatory: Is this the patch that makes the game fun?

Serious question: I've read here at BN that a lot of people are recommending a HOTAS system. However, I already have a perfectly functional Sidewinder Force Feedback 2. Would pairing it with a Logitech G13, which I also already own, work just as well?

I play with TrackIR and MS SW FFB2. But I also use Voiceattack. This combo feels great for me.

Not sure how they intend to deliver the boxed, no DRM kickstarter rewards.

I suppose there are the usual apologists who think they shouldn't have to deliver on that either.

Too old for the first three games, but looks like he's old in this one.
No lie - I loved the first 3, only reason I bought a PS3, but I have zero interest in the next one after all the turmoil on that franchise. And while I enjoyed Last of Us, it simply wasn't as much fun as Uncharted. It didn't try to be, that wasn't the point of the game, but I just enjoyed Uncharted so much more.

My sentiments exactly. Plus, why change the character look? Change for change sake. Looks like different person. I didn't finish "Last of us". Just didn't hold my interest. Loved Uncharted series from start to finish.

Wow. Way too early to release this... Must be extremely feature light... Or... I'll be amazed.

They're out of money, so they kinda have to. There was an article, I think blue linked it, couple of days or a week or so ago that Frontier was in the red.

I think you mean they posted a loss. They are certainly not out of money as they actually have cash reserves.
