    Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020

    Won't require years though. We're right on the verge of the mythical "I'll wait for 4K / 8K" and "I'll wait for next gen" point that the fence-sitters often mention. Example HP just announced Reverb G2 ($599) with 2160x2160 per eye (that's 2.5x pixels more than Rift S), and Samsung and others...

    Far Cry 6

    What's ironic is that it was Michael's role as the Far Cry 3 villain that got him noticed and cast for Breaking Bad and its spinoff Better Call Saul. And now Breaking Bad's main villain (and also later featured in Better Call Saul) is the villain for the latest Far Cry. Dude is an incredible...

    Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020

    I would've assumed the same as you, that the idea of interacting with knobs and switches in VR would be comedy disaster, until I tried VTOL VR - you feel like you're actually sitting in a cockpit, you're reaching your hands out flipping switches and pressing buttons and its actually very...

    Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020

    Nevermind that MS has the WMR platform in Windows 10, but with no content or apparent interest in creating any. The new Flight Simulator, Forza etc would've been the obvious firstparty titles to elevate WMR. Their new Xbox also has no sign of VR strategy, while Sony keeps doubling down on...

    Big question for me will be VR support. After playing VTOL VR and it actually feeling like flying, there's no going back to flat earth flight.

    Epic Games receives strategic investment from Sony Corporation

    Consumers can't get a PS5 right now. Meanwhile Samsung 980 Pro comes out in August and will make the PS5 SSD look like it's shuffling down the hall, pants around it's ankles, looking for toilet paper. The PS5 SSD will be a godsend for reduced loadtimes, but its not going to increase FPS.

    Holy hell, I just purchased this last night on a whim, and my jaw's on the floor just from the first training missions. This was the "ah-hah" moment for me for VR flight. If you have VR hardware, you must try it. I haven't been able to get back to my playthrough of Half Life Alyx because I keep...

    Cyberpunk 2077: Night City Wire premieres June 25

    Will be interesting to see how good Cyberpunk looks in VorpX initially. I'm sure demand for a good VorpX profile will be high.

    Your latest VR purchase?

    VTOL VR - Supposedly a great entrypoint to VR flightsims without DCS level complexity. Edit: holy hell this is my new favorite VR game. This is the closest experience to actually flying of anything I've tried.

    Your latest VR purchase?

    The Morrigan - low poly stylized dungeon crawler with solid combat. Reminding me of a Souls game after an hour with it.

    Linus Torvalds Likes His New AMD Threadripper System

    Painter switches to a different brand of paint roller. The excitement cannot be contained.

    Rockstar Games Project Leaked

    There's a way to disable the mod's alternate eye rendering which I believe is the cause of that.

    MSI President and CEO Sheng-Chang Chiang Has Died

    I could swear this was an episode of The Office except Michael was faking it and landed on a trampoline or something.
