Seriously?? the mode they've been promoting the last few months wasn't even going to be a standard part of the game but planned paid for DLC? insanity. And now we're thankful it's going to be freely available? in all the videos when they talked about how "unique" mp would be in allowing one player to be a zombie they never once discussed it as anything other than a set part of the game.

Gaming sucks more and more balls.

I'm waiting for the reviews. Maybe I'll get it for PC.

About the game


What's up?

    droezelke @Ian_Nottingham: My advice: try one first. I did before I was thinking of buying it. Didn't buy it because I get simulation sickness with every game I tried. (18 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX Seems likely? First year it's been out in the wild.. first chance for them to give it a big go. I hope so too. (19 minutes ago)

    Ian_Nottingham @GriftGFX: I really hope we see something amazing at E3 with VR.I need a reason to purchase one since i haven't been able to try one out at a store anywhere. (20 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think it'd be pretty surprising/amazing if PSVR actually lasted several years and developed a large library, personally. (24 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I mean.. you can speculate too. I don't think anyone has a magic eight ball. I bet Sony doesn't even know. (25 minutes ago)

    droezelke @GriftGFX: Thanks. (29 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It's probably too early to say.. but if Sony doesn't make a big fuss over VR at E3 than you'll probably have your answer. (31 minutes ago)
