So what kind of shit do I have to install to run this? It's bought from the Windows Store, but my understanding is that it (the store) components only run if it's launched. What about things like Games for Windows Live? I have bad memories of that. Anything like that shit that will be required? I see Xbox above. Xbox anything on my PC also makes me afraid. I should probably just wait for a Steam release.

Is Google also going to build the graphics card required to power it?

We'll start over with CGA, and then on to EGA, etc. In 20 years we'll be back to where we are now, only in VR.

Hmm, so DRM?

No. More like "Yeah, I wrote this." Has nothing to do with DRM.

But having a signed SSL certificate to even run your software *is* strange.

Not very strange. I find it odd when drivers aren't signed. Otherwise how can you really trust that they're from the developer? At any rate, this cert was around the CV1 days. The guy who wrote the software probably left and nobody noticed. Also changing a system clock can lead to other software problems, so make sure to change it back when done. I'm surprised they haven't fixed it yet though since signing a new executable shouldn't take very long.

I exclusively play Mystery Heroes, there’s actually quite a few players who do that.

I'm the same way. My fear is they put Mystery Heroes on a random rotation like the other game types. I'd probably stop playing. It really makes you focus on staying alive, too, since if you can lose your ult.

Isn't Orisa defense?

ESO combat needs a lot of help, and I don't think Synergies is enough. I get bored out of my mind playing this game because the combat is so bad. Skills don't feel like they have any unf. Stab normal, or stab with a glowing spear. And if you blink you miss it.

I haven't played for a long time. Did they ever make the car not break down (or need gas) every 5 minutes? That was my biggest complaint. I eventually started walking everywhere, which didn't last long before I quit.

Was going to buy an upgrade for my CPU for the upcoming games, but now all this Meltdown stuff has me waiting. Think mine is going on 4 years now, the longest I've ever had one.

Playboy has filed a lawsuit against Boing Boing, accusing the offbeat news blog of copyright infringement for linking to an Imgur gallery and a YouTube video that showed every Playmate centerfold.

So uh.. where was this Imgur gallery link? I'm practicing my law stuffs and need to do some research.

Edit: Nevermind... it's been removed. I was not one of the lucky 2 million that viewed that link.

Mreh, the Meltdown fix has no discernible performance difference for gaming, which is the only thing I do on my PC that strains it whatsoever.

Unless apparently you play Fortnite.

I had a go with Skyrim VR on a buddy's Playstation 4 Pro w/PSVR. Holy shit. I thought I was done with Skyrim after like 200+ hours in it but VR really does immerse you in a way that is almost indescribable.

Hopefully comes to PC soon. FO4 with melee weapons is fun, but I imagine Skyrim would be even better due to the focus on melee. On the other hand, blasting a raider point blank (thanks teleport!) with a shotgun is certainly enjoyable.

Ah, the legendary Bethesda release. Been awhile since we've last met.

Sounds like this is fixed in a patch they just released to beta branch today. I hope that means they're listening to complaints and have some quick turn-around on bug squishing. Not that I really expect much.

2. Re: Fallout 4 VR Released Dec 12, 2017, 11:30 Frijoles
 
Played an hour last night. Just enough to finish the starter area and kill some bugs. Melee feels good. Shooting I haven't done much yet. Apparently scopes don't work at all, so hopefully it can be modded. Few glitches and things to fix via settings, but overall not bad. I did quite enjoy escaping the starter house and walking around. And you can stick your hand through glass cases and take items.

So far so good, although I need a good hundred more hours in it to know for sure. I would like to see the perk list updated with some VR specific options. For example, being able to teleport further without using AP. Again, hopefully someone can mod it. I think people were doing some tests and were saying that yes, mods should work.
