I laughed at the exclusive DLC for FFXIII. Since when do you advertise avatar clothing?

I agree. Only want to see how Fable 3 is, but it will probably be another let down by Peter.

What's up?
  • Megido
    Megido So essentially, VR is limited to a certain type of experiences as well. Not everything works well in VR. That said, the stuff that does is amazingly fun :) (2 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido I set Dark Souls up to run on my Vive, got barfy af after like 10 minutes. Same with any game that doesn't use teleport movement. Tried trackpad move in one game, almost fell over from the confusion. (4 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX Which apparently has "no games" according to people who supposedly love JRPGs ;) (10 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @alimokrane: Attach rates matter too. See PS Vita. (10 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And not just for some but some experiences. VR stuff that's developer for VR is obviously the best VR stuff. (11 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @KORNdog: VR improves for some. Remember that not all people can handle VR. (24 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but at the end of the day it's still just a sold separately peripheral. and you can't force any dev to support a peripheral. (55 minutes ago)
