    Rift S

    This was initially a concern for me, but they also said it has a 3.5mm jack integrated. This means I can just take a pair of in ears I have lying around (I have like 3 pair just lying around since I went bluetooth, though I know that's not the same story as everyone else), wrap them with a...

    Rift S

    This is my second biggest concern, and probably the biggest reason I don't regret having bought a Rift so recently. Inside-out is cool, but LoS tracking isn't.

    Rift S

    $200 is a pretty good reason for some.

    Rift S

    I just bought a CV1 a couple months ago! I'm not sure how I feel about the move away from external tracking. Inside-out tracking is cool, and makes for a MUCH easier set-up, but also isn't near as full as an external solution, namely when reaching straight down, or behind you. Maybe the 5th...

    Ransomware Encourages Victims to Subscribe to PewDiePie

    Don't worry. This guy has been on these forums time and time again, talking about how YouTube was always better back in the day. I tried to have a reasonable back and forth, and it stayed civil, but neither of us budged on our opinions (I think it's great to have a mix of ameteur and...

    Ransomware Encourages Victims to Subscribe to PewDiePie

    I looked him up again yesterday after hearing his name come up on a podcast. He just passed 90m. I don't much care for his style, but I also don't hold him accountable for anything his fanbase does. Just because his name is on it, doesn't mean it's his.

    Epic Games Announces More Exclusives and Features

    I did specify that they're encouraging pricing competition. Yes, the Steam keys are ultimately still used on Steam, but you're not having to give Steam a 30% cut for the sale, and you're still reaping most of the benefits of the platform. Looking at it purely from a consumer standpoint, Steam...

    Epic Games Announces More Exclusives and Features

    I wrote earlier in the post that I hate console exclusivity even more than PC platform exclusivity. That aside, the biggest reason this is an outrage is because it's honestly the first time we've seen a huge push by a company to make PC exclusive games that aren't made and owned by them or a...

    Epic Games Announces More Exclusives and Features

    Literally the only way I'd buy their games right now... And I'd make sure that the slider was 100% to charity.

    Epic Games Announces More Exclusives and Features

    I, too, want to stay open minded about their store. I'm not "anti-competition to Valve". I just want the competition to be based on features and pricing, not exclusivity. They have enough money to buy all of these exclusive deals, but not to better the platform they're sold on? It's the same...

    Facebook Unveils the Oculus Rift S

    I just got my rift 2 months ago, and I'm not sure how I feel about this announcement now. Lol. Seriously, though, my biggest concern is taking away the sensor based tracking. While it is more of a pain to set up, it's also much better overall for tracking. I'll be interested to see reviews on...

    Anthem Was Bioware's Second Best Launch

    I bought the game because a few buddies bought the game. I've enjoyed my time with it. That's not to say it doesn't have issues, because it has plenty of issues. However, it definitely scratched the itch of an "Iron Man simulator" game that I've been wanting for a long time. I don't regret the...

    Epic Games Denies Client Spying Accusations

    That's fair. I didn't know that part. Again, I'm not here to accuse either side of nefarious activity. Just curious what companies are doing with my data.

    Steam Link Anywhere Enables Game Streaming over the Internet

    I had a long winded reply typed out, but I'll just suffice it to say I'm not a fanboy. There's plenty I dislike about Valve. I just don't think that offering a free service available to all users (AMD has no options right now) is necessarily a bad thing, regardless of how few people use it. Gabe...

    Epic Games Denies Client Spying Accusations

    The controversy seems to specifically be about doing it without permission. You can opt in or out of Steam's hardware surveys if you want. Epic's begins scanning the second you launch the program, before you log in or anything. Whether or not it's nefarious is yet to be proven, but scanning...

    Steam Link Anywhere Enables Game Streaming over the Internet

    You mean that it wasn't HL3 or L4D3? I want both of those as much as anyone else, but I don't get mad when a new game launches that isn't what I want. I also meant to imply that Artifact wasn't a fantastic game, though I did a terrible job of it. I, too, would much rather have had either of...

    Steam Link Anywhere Enables Game Streaming over the Internet

    Why is this stupid and pointless? What if I want to play my games on my lunch break at work? Just take a bluetooth keyboard or controller and play it on my phone. Got a spare laptop? Now it's a mobile gaming rig anywhere you have wifi. I personally probably won't use it much, if at all, but that...

    VR Rhythm Game 'Beat Saber' Sells over 1 Million Copies

    There is a multiplayer mod. I can't speak to how it works, but I saw it in my "all-in-one mod loader" that I use for custom songs. GitHub Link. UploadVR also did an article showcasing some tweets from Beat Saber's official twitter page stating that they were working on multiplayer. Quick Edit...

    VR Rhythm Game 'Beat Saber' Sells over 1 Million Copies

    Everything about this game is just smooth. It really takes advantage of VR in one of the best ways I can think of. It is immersive in a way unlike most other games, in that once you put the headset on and start your song, you're so into it that you forget about everything. The controls are...

    Twitch Streamer Ninja Was Paid $1 Million by EA to Stream 'Apex Legends'

    A very popular (and incredibly good, skill-wise) Fortnite streamer. I think he was the biggest one for Fortnite. Getting someone that big in the Battle Royale streaming scene to play your new battle royale game is pretty big. Basically, he's nothing special, apart from being good at a video...

    Gearbox Teases a March Borderlands Announcement

    Here's hoping they don't just rehash Borderlands 2 with a new map. I thoroughly enjoyed BL1 and 2 when they launched, but the Pre-Sequel proved that they can't just take BL2 and add some new characters and a map and expect it to be as good as the previous titles.

    Google's Game Streaming Console Controller Potentially Revealed

    A couple of things. I've used a couple cheap third party controllers that looked like this one, and they all were super uncomfortable. For one thing, near 90 degree angles don't make for a comfortable grip. Look at both the Ps4 and Xbox controllers and you'll see a bit more of an angle on the...

    EA Will Skip the E3 2019 Press Conference

    I think it's the right call. E3 is getting less popular each year. Besides that, I'm tired of seeing this awesome looking game pop-up, then being told it'll be here in 5 years. In 5 years, I promise I will have forgotten your game, and most likely, the hype for your game has died,

    THQ Nordic Apologizes for Hosting AMA on 8chan

    This is 100% true. 4chan is a place self-described as the most disgusting place on the internet. They call themselves literally "the asshole of the internet." 8chan is regarded as too crude for 4chan, and now THQs name is linked to 8chan. Simply saying "sorry" isn't enough to dissociate the two...

    Activision and EA CEOs Appear on List of "Most Overpaid" in the US

    Ya know, I love Jim Sterling when he's talking about gaming and gaming markets, but I can't agree with everything he says. Videos like this one are proof of that. I'm definitely on the side of hardwarephreak and Laowai here. CEOs do more work than I could imagine. Also, to the one's calling...

    Tesla Launches $35,000 Standard Model 3

    So, honest question here. If I buy a Tesla Model 3, I obviously don't need to buy gas for the car. However, my electricity bill is going to shoot up, as I don't live anywhere with the Tesla charging stations. Would the amount I'm saving in gas offset the amount my electric bill goes up? Would I...

    Post Release Reviews of Anthem are Still Mixed

    I'm torn on this one. On one hand, I enjoy good combat mechanics, and don't need a great story to enjoy a game. On the other, I need a core gameplay loop that will keep me coming back. Warframe was a game I dumped 300 hours into without even realizing it, and it's basically the same missions...

    Some 1660 TI Models Could Have 3GB of VRAM

    The 3.5/4 in my 970 still runs strong. It's only been in the last 6 months or so that I've really had to turn down anything more than shadows in a game to get a solid 60. That said, it is getting pretty long in to tooth, and 3GB is worse than my 3.5/4. Sheer amount of RAM isn't the only factor...
