    Constellation Tracking Could Be a Long-Term Mistake for Oculus

    Many folks are trying to equate VR to revolutionizing gaming. I tend to see gaming as an afterthought. VR will revolutionize the way we live our lives. From military applications, Job applications, Education applications, Tourist applications, the opportunity to open up new markets of...

    Constellation Tracking Could Be a Long-Term Mistake for Oculus

    I always thought 3d vision, 3d TV's and even 4K tvs are just a shotgun approach to finding the next new revolutionary medium of entertainment. None stuck. As for VR, If we include the Virtual boy as the start of the VR age, then we can argue it's been in the making for 25 years. And it still is...

    About wet my pants in VR

    I'm on the Oculus touch. I don't get a laser pointer per se, but when my hook is able to attach to something, I get a circle telling me it's a valid target. I'v had the game for 3 days and have so far gotten through about 20 minutes of it. The game brings out my fear of heights to the fullest...

    Constellation Tracking Could Be a Long-Term Mistake for Oculus

    Patience Young Padawan. You're too into the here and now. When you have Facebook, Google, Apple, Sony, MSFT, STEAM, Nvidia and every other industry giant seeing the light at the end of the tunnel regarding VR, it's hard to bet against them. They know where this is going. Zuckerberg already told...

    Constellation Tracking Could Be a Long-Term Mistake for Oculus

    Here's how I look at it. If traditional gaming is always going to be the leading gaming format, that would logically conclude that there will be a CoD 20, CoD 50, or Battlefield 10, Battlefield 25.....I mean seriously gaming has basically exhausted all creative avenues. What else could there...

    Constellation Tracking Could Be a Long-Term Mistake for Oculus

    2017 / 2018 is going to be content overload IMO. Old or dying studios suddenly have an avenue to make money by porting old stuff over to VR. Imagine 25 years of classic games ported to VR.....head explosion.... I actually bought the Rift off Ebay for rediculous amounts of money right when it...

    Constellation Tracking Could Be a Long-Term Mistake for Oculus

    Well, if you have had that much experience with VR and don't like it, perhaps the simplest explanation is not that VR is a niche, but you are a niche..... As for replacing traditional gaming....when the first cars rolled out, peeps swore it would never replace horses. It seems to me your entire...

    About wet my pants in VR

    Yeah, I'm afraid of heights as well. This game is utterly over the top. My hands are sweatin so much, it might short out the controllers. Right now, I can only do it for about 5 minutes before i got to put it down. The worst for me is not the flying around, but the hanging on a tree and then...

    Constellation Tracking Could Be a Long-Term Mistake for Oculus

    Pretty sure you just proved to everyone that has VR that you don't have a clue. It's like trying to explain what something smells like if you have never smelled it. Think you are still thinking on a 2d plane. With VR, even the most mundane and boring tasks like changing a light bulb is now...

    Constellation Tracking Could Be a Long-Term Mistake for Oculus

    The last great tech that changed the world and elevated whole economies was the dawn of the computer age back in the 90's. I think VR is even bigger than that. And companies know it. And the tech this time around will evolve much faster than people think, just because there is so much money to...

    About wet my pants in VR

    WoW. Played Windlands for the first time on Oculus Touch. Had no idea what i was getting into. Played it standing. Had to put it down after 5 minutes, LOL. Have not felt that much RAW fear in a very long time. I was grasping the trigger like I was hanging on for dear life......

    Constellation Tracking Could Be a Long-Term Mistake for Oculus

    Same here. I stopped gaming for 10 years, despite upgrading to the newest vid cards every 3 years just to run a tech demo here and there. Now I can't put this VR stuff down. There is something quite therapeutic in emptying clips of bullets into hordes of monsters after a long day at work and...

    Doom 3 BFG VR

    I started to actually walk in place everytime I move. LOL. Tried out Onward last night, and that game rocks too. I'm pretty lazy so most of the time I am literally lying proned on the floor waiting for a sniper victim to walk by....

    Oculus Touch Controllers Review

    The best experience I think a noobie can have in seeing the potential of the Touch Controllers is Bullet Train. It's a AAA showcase for VR. Can not wait until Robo Recall is out later this month. Best part.....BOTH are FREE!!!!!

    How do you pixel peepers deal with the low res?

    I sort of felt the same way about the resolution.......until I played Bullet Train with the Touch Controllers. I instantly could not care less about the resolution after I dual wielded pistols, caught incoming bullets out of the air, and threw them back at the attackers. Never had so much fun in...

    Oculus Touch Controllers Review

    HOLY SHEET!!! These controllers are AWESOME. Got the Rift when it first came out, played it for 1 month and have not touched it until I got my Touch Controllers. These things are a game changer. The 2nd sensor works enough for me most of the time unless I turn 180 and occlude my hands but 95% of...

    So, be honest, does the resolution bother you?

    I was so totally hooked once I started all the puzzles leading up to the Cyclops. It was refreshing to see a new way to present puzzles (no spoilers included). You will be grinning the whole time....

    So, be honest, does the resolution bother you?

    OK, I bit the bullet and hesitantly bought Chronos for the Rift. I must say....blown away in 10 minutes. It is not a very interactive VR game, just a fixed third person camera. Typical adventure hack slash game. But the immersion is AWESOME. The first 5 minutes and I felt like I just crashed on...

    So, be honest, does the resolution bother you?

    That's a pretty cool simulator, but yeah...Res sucks. honestly, when there is an abundance of badass software available, I think the Res issue will kind of get swept under the rug to an extent. Right now it's all basically short tech demos, so after you lose that initial wow factor, you kind of...

    Rift vs Vive

    Problem with going that small is the heat. The Hybrid version of the 980 Ti was the only card that didn't overheat big time, I'm talking 90C plus temps on the GPU with a regular air cooled GPU. But if you're crafty you might be able to stick 3 GPU's into a Bitfenix Prodigy like this guy...

    Rift vs Vive

    Just wanted to show you guys one aspect of the Rift that no one ever talks about. That is its portability. In the last 2 weeks I've had the Rift, I've been so amazed by VR, I want to show everyone how awesome VR can be. But in order to do so, I've got to haul the Rift around to friends and...

    So, be honest, does the resolution bother you?

    You would probably vomit all over the place playing Half-Life in VR. I tried playing EVE again last night, havnt touched it since I demoed it for 5 minutes. I can tell you this, the force is not with me on this one. All that head turning and barrels rolls made me quit in 15 minutes. Thank God it...

    So, be honest, does the resolution bother you?

    It would be so better, if Oculus or HTC pumped more money into public awareness. Need more demo stations around the USA. It's the only real way people can make an informed decision. Just talking about VR or debating it without ever trying it is pointless. Once a person tries it for about 15...
