This VR rhythm game looks pretty fun: [url] (5 Hours ago)
that's a pretty big deal, as its probably the biggest stumbling block for the tech. (8 Hours ago)
Stuff like inside out tracking and eye tracking, as well as motion sickness solutions should be in place. We've already got a product in development that claims to have eradicated that already (8 Hours ago)
The potential of it is massive. More so than what traditional gaming now is. Second gen is going to be very interesting. (8 Hours ago)
We're sort of being spoon fed bit sized "experiences" that either work or don't. I suppose that's part of the freshness of it, though. I just wish some big devs would get more involved. (8 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: Ironically, though, the VR scene is also playing it safe. Too safe. There's not enough big risk titles like RE7. (8 Hours ago)
I can't really wrap my head around being dismissive of indie games. That's a pretty broad label. (11 Hours ago)
