  • What's up?
    • KORNdog
      KORNdog for me the more important games in VR are the ones from indie studio's who are conceptually not playing it safe, they're experimental and unique and are offering experiences we wouldn't get otherwise (21 minutes ago)
    • KORNdog
      KORNdog but for consumers it's one of the most "standard" experiences in VR in the sense its a normal game we're accustomed to. (23 minutes ago)
    • KORNdog
      KORNdog @MrWhite: i'd actually consider RE7 to be one of the safer experiences in VR becasue it is a mainstream title. i mean, it's added work from capcoms point of view (24 minutes ago)
    • Melmoth
      Melmoth @GriftGFX: looks a bit like Audioshield, which is good fun. [url] (1 Hour ago)
    • Melmoth
      Melmoth engines to get good results. graphics hardware would also need more than a few changes. I think this will the biggest hurdle to get devs to support VR (1 Hour ago)
    • Melmoth
      Melmoth and some of them not that far away. problem is more on the software side. eye-tracking with foveated rendering doesn't work well with traditional rasterization, and would require fully rewritten (1 Hour ago)
    • Melmoth
      Melmoth @MrWhite: wireless HMD, inside-out tracking. great for convenience. Eye tracking+4K'ish displays, improved clarity without (potentially) killing performance. important for the VR onwards. (1 Hour ago)
