So two things.

1. My summer Holiday is going to be spent home
2. I will be traveling to places you cannot imagine, to see the C-beams glitter at the Tanhhauser gates, all these moments in VR, like tears in rain.

Man I was expecting a premium after the Rift debacle but pulled the trigger anyway, got my confirmation email 7 minutes after preorders launched so I'm pretty confident I'll get mine shipped on the fifth of April.

>Next up this evening is Elite Dangerous with my crappy joystick

This is the kind of stuff I'd like VR for. Vehicle driving sims, like ED and Rise of Flight/IL-2, SimBin race games, and shit like Squad, Arma, and other headtracking FPS games. RPGs and shit might be fun with it too, or games like The Witcher or definitely Mount and Blade.

The whole motion controller rig stuff can suck a dick until force feedback can be added in a real-world analog manner.

I think this shit's still a good 3 or so years away before it's actually worth owning for anyone who doesn't just have an early adopter fetish.

I do believe in the tech and I think someday it will dominate the market, but maybe more around 2020.

Rage could best be summed up as a game with some really good gunplay, and tons of wasted potential for everything else. With some Far Cry/Shadows of Mordor style open-world elements and a actual plot it could have ended up being a serious competitor against Fallout, so I have no dobut Beth/Zenimax killed Rage 2 because of that.

Pretty much exactly as you said, it had alot of potential. Good gameplay, good background story, excellent environments at times, and okay characters. Just the plot itself was paper thin, the ending was terrible, and alot of the driving areas were really freaking bad. Plus it ran like crap on the systems of the day.

With a bit of refinement it could be a truly excellent game. It was already fun as fuck but needs a bit more polish to make a bit less mindless.

I think like Prey 2, Rage 2 is probably not going to happen either for quite awhile if ever.

Check out Pirate Doom. I found it a couple weeks ago and it's pretty great.

There's Hexen and Heretic if you want swords and sorcery. And Strife was a really early prototype of components that would eventually show up in games like Deus Ex. But generally it seems like back then total conversions ended up being released as commercial software instead. (I remember reading there was great bitching when Evilution went commercial hours before release)

There was a survival horror themed WAD called Cold as Hell released years ago but I heard it doesn't work with modern source ports due to bugs? There was a open-world survival TC that released some screenshots last year, but I forget what it's called or if it's still being worked on.

The Build engine (Blood, Duke3D, Shadow Warrior) also had NAM and WW2 GI, which were terrible.

I either don't recall or blocked those moments from memory. I recall the frantic firefights of Sea Rigs, the blackhawks coming in under heavy fire over Lost Village (no Para), a night map were the CAR-15 and VSS reigned supreme, I remember holding a small isolated flag on El Al against a combined ground and air attack. Also the A-10 was fun.

Bought RO2/Rising Storm during Christmas 2014 Steam sale.

Downloaded, installed, played about 2 hours worth of matches where I would simply spawn and die in under 5 seconds because I'd immediately get cut down by MG fire upon spawning. Promptly uninstalled, tried to get a refund, couldn't.

For all the praising I saw about RO2, that game can go fuck itself. RO1, despite Arad being seemingly the only map ever played, was infinitely superior. Bought Insurgency on a whim and it's better than RO1/2 could ever hope to be while getting a fraction of the recognition.

I think you guys are being a little critical. That's been my experience in just about any combat-oriented FPS type game for years.
It's why I'v kind of gravitated to more "hardcore" type stuff like ARMA, and am interested in Squad, etc. and don't play arcadey shit lie CoD, TF, etc. anymore.
If you can literally throw a knife/axe/grenade from the spawn without taking a step, and hit enemies; your maps are too fucking small.

Battlefield 4 was a shitstorm of shitty coding and botched decisions and management. I'm still shot feet behind cover, near 10-15 seconds after I ran behind it, on a Cable modem.

Plus they make a point of advertising these games as so "tactical" and "realism mechanics" then it's all look at this sooper awesome gun never made, Desert Eagle bullshit; oh look we're Swedish so we'll make the AK5 amazing even though the last time Sweden was involved in a war we paid Nazis not to invade; full auto fire while sprinting nonstop around the map; but an LMG is worthless unless prone and with a bipod; you can carry only 2 grenades, an either a defibrillator or an undermount grenade launcher, but an engineer can carry a full combat loadout, 5 AT4s, and an EOD bot or C4, etc.
and what's backblast lol? especially in a scout helo? So that a scout helo can have triple the firepower of an attack helo?

I don't mind not necessarily "not true to life" but at least be consistent (in BF4 the Desert Eagle did 80 dmg when first dropped IIRC but main infantry rifles do about 30) .

Also they need to find some sort of mechanic where spawn camping can't happen, like you guys suggested, and you can't just be swamped by a mass of X fresh spawns all at once just appearing out of thin air and wrecking someone who has been fighting hard to cap a point just by virtue of he can't aim and fire in 7 different directions simultaneously. It's 2016 guys. We can do better than the same map mechanics with the same problems as BF1942 (released 2002).

So...anyone still playing KSP? I'm playing on Career Mode, and fuck I'm having a hard time of it. Build shit that as far as I can tell should be flying straight up gets pulled off at an angle early into the flight, but there shouldn't be any sources of drag to cause that. In a lot of my builds I've resorted to angled fins to stabilize via rotation, but that basically means I'm stuck with a totally vertical first stage, or whenever I'm out of atmo.

Also, goddamn reentry is a BITCH now. Drogue cutes are so far down the line, and because of problem A, my reentries are too vertical.

It's fun to try and problem solve this shit...but damn if it isn't frustrating sometimes.

watch scott manley's videos.


He has tutorials, does a weekly hour+ long stream on twitch, and actually knows orbital mechanics and orbital science calculations.

He also recommends mods like Ferrum Aerospace for better aerodynamics, B9 Aerospace for more parts, Scatterer for better atmospheric renderings.

As far as your stability issues, could be inconsistencies in mods, some formerly massless parts now have mass in post 1.0 release, could be your reaction wheels arent strong enough for your rocket, etc. Aerodynamics arent the greatest either in stock KSP, so a lot of players recommend Ferrum Aerospace, an improved aero calculation system which is coded by a guy who actually studies aero as a profession.

>On March 15, 2016 Crytek announced a new version of Cryengine dubbed "Cryengine V". It features Direct3D 12 and VR support and a new licensing model which allows you to pay as much as you want to use it. The money which you'll pay can be split between the further development of the engine and funding "promising" Indie titles. From now on the company releases the engine's full source code.
I haven't actually seen any of their code or what it is licensed under, but this seems interesting considering how you can choose to spend your monies.

I wonder will this help the linux side of things.

Desperately want to dump windows fully (near fully at least).
>> No. 57641 ID: 6d6cb1
It might make some more competitive developments versus the usual 3D stays of Darkplaces and Unity.

As for dumping Windows, have either [DETERMINATION] or patience.

Releasing October of this year with an MSRP of $399. You'll need one of those playstation cameras to use it, so tack on another $50 or so.

I'm really looking forward to playing Ace Combat with one of these things on.


Also, i'm hoping for support of thing like GTA as the first person mode in GTA V would be really cool with something like this.

I know a few of you have already ordered a Vive or Rift, this seems a bit more my speed at the moment as i'm really hesitant to splurge on the first generation of what I anticipate to be a rapidly evolving technology. Anyone else in the same boat?

That's for some kind of launch bundle with all the toys, as far as I can tell. The headset it'self will be $400.

>Stay in your peasantry.
The PC headsets, while preferable, are more expensive and are more likely to be replaced by better performing variants much faster. That and I don't have to upgrade my PC along with buying a headset.

Also, Ace Combat.
