Eve: Echoes is in open beta now and those screenshots and video are pretty on par with what Eve Online was. And it is a MMO as well. But no connects to old accounts. I have seen some pretty convincing ports of older PC and console games as well.

They really have a lot of specs to play with now. If I was going to design, I would stick with single player RPG’s rather than MMO’s just because mobile means sporadic gamers versus hardcore dependable players. A WoW or even EQ level of player base would still end up in PUG’s all too often.

I picked up a MIFI controller and it works well. Not sure why more developers don’t code for it. Because I think it would be leaps and bounds for gaming. Same thing for keyboard controls from either a Bluetooth KB or Apple’s Smart Cover. The resources are there just not utilized. When that changes and maybe the VR equipment will spur it on, mobile gaming will open way up.

Don't do MMOs at all
Not anymore , since DAoC

Point is that the hardware and graphics are there for an engaging game if a MMO is an option. They did a faithful port of KOTOR and I would say Skyrim would be doable as well, at least a console port. But if modding was a possibility...give me a functional FO3 and the GECK and I would be quite happy.

Ah! To tell the truth.

Looks alright. But none of that makes me want to go out and get a VR set. I think mostly, its an age thing, or likely just because dont play videogames as much anymore. Or maybe, nothing really appealing out there. And the tech has gotten better, but its not there yet.

You know what they need to do? Make all the FPS and the next big call of duty games, on the VR. I see why they dont do it, not that big of a market as it stands, and also the limitations on the hardware. But if there trying to push the new VR stuff, games sell consoles, and they can sell VR gear consoles also.

Just make the new call of duty black ops or whatever for the VR. And finally that whole FPS ie First Person Shooter genera. May actually have some truth to it, and actually be first person, games like that are practically made for VR. May help boost sales as well. But like I said, dont think the technology is there yet with VR to really peak and dazzle the masses interests just yet, maybe next gear and console cycle.

legit... im not trying to sell you on VR

But have you actually tried it?

Nope not yet. Like I said, haven't been any games out there that really would make me want to buy one. In fact even on regular consoles, other then the remake of FF7, cant really think of one game that I am looking forward to. I'm pretty sure VR its cool, but...I think I will wait. And with all the other stuff going on, likely indefinitely.

I have an HTC vive and I love it when I use it, though I don't get much time these days.

If I am not mistaken you can get an HTC vive (not pro) for around $500 now.

NoMans Sky is freaking awesome in VR....

I just tried the htc vive a few days ago... have you had it for long?

The screen door effect on the one i tried was pretty bad... IF you happen to be looking to upgrade in the future and you have a display port on your system... get a Rift S

Its cheaper, and said screen door effect is practically gone

I've had it for over a year.
I found it was all about the adjustments with the optics to get rid of the screen door effect.
It isn't perfect but I am happy with it. You get the full immersion effect but it is an early system.
Doubt I will upgrade for a while though. It serves it's purpose.

Been looking forward to VR for many years and seriously, if you have the computer system, any headset is good.
VR is one of the coolest things to come along since sliced bread.

Anyone who thoughts they might like it, most likely will love it, no matter what system they use.

Cool man... i hear that

One of the reasons i made this thread... its not too pricy, and totally worth the cost

Oculus Go is easily the best thing i've bought in years...

But the Rift S is the jam

Hey, interesting topic. Just a question who else experienced Minecraft VR? I wonder if there is possibility to join minecraft servers with VR set.

posted on Jan, 13 2020 @ 04:08 PM
a reply to: RuneKing

yup.. you can play any server in VR that you can on flat screen...

Minecraft is excellent in VR... and its bloody terrifying!!!

Crawling through the underworld caves, and you hear bones rattle... or an arrow flys past your head...

Oh ya, Minecraft VR is awesome!

And you don't even need a Rift to play... works perfectly sideloaded on the GO... and with either version of Minecraft... win10 or Java

people need to know that VR is HERE...

the more people that know, the more the tech improves... the more incredible games and experiences we get

It truly is here! I just got my first, an Oculus Quest 2 weeks ago. After a few days of adjusting headstrap, getting good headphones online, I think I found my soul mate, V1. The action is so real it makes me laugh at the absurdity of being so profoundly visually entertained by something that is completely fake. It's like, cheech and chong hilarious. I'm hiding behind virtual boxes and even laying on my carpet to avoid bullets with no repercussions.

If you are athletic, you can simply crush your enemies with actual physical dexterity, performing a ballet of death not capable with a mouse, keyboard, or console controller. I can do things I've never dreamed of with standard controllers, my body and the relationship between my head and arms swaying is the real input device, 3 points of relativity to triangulate my inner jedi.

I trained up with glorious Space Pirate Trainer. The first game that won me over was Drop Dead, an amazing zombie game (I don't play zombie games). Then I got Dead & Buried II on a hunch, and it's the most fun I've ever had in a lifetime of vidiot bliss. 3v3 - multiplayer only - instead of a menu, there's a ghost town with other lost players working to figure it out. Perfect cowboy dual-6 shooter combat. Here's my edit for you guys with 0 views:

Oculus Quest - Dead & Buried Action!

PokerVR on the quest is awesome...

I loved it on the GO and for some reason its the same on the Rift...

The quest version is just... better!

Oculus sucks. Get a VIVE VR if you are still wondering about getting one ^

a reply to: Jungian

Yeah i recently tried a vive... it sucks compared to a Rift S

SDE is horrible... whereas there is practically none on the S

Then again some people enjoy looking through a front porch door while playing VR lol

lol some people are so ignorant they will defend whatever gadget they "think" is best xD -Like Apple users.
As an owner of both vive and oculus which both are great, vive is FAR greater.
and im not here to argue with children. i am here to offer my recommendation.

Whats the difference?

Comfort; VIVE
A sense of scale: VIVE
Motion Controllers; VIVE

And VIVE has a much, MUCH better selection of software and a it also has a real nice modding community.

"Screendoor" effect: same
Visuals: same
Audio: same

Oculus has facebook, which has only made it worse over time. And of course oculus is cheaper which is probably why op "likes" it more. xD
At least I have tried both properly.

My honest recommendation is to wait a few more years. VR is not really "there" yet.

Lol you're not arguing with a child... more like a VR enthusist

The vive is just as comfortable as the S

There is no SDE on the S... whereas its horrible on the Vive... unless you have a pro

The " sense of scale" is the same on both

The vive wands are bad.. big and bulky... whereas the S controllers are small and easy to handle

But as you said... some people will defend their headset... and apparently even lie about it

If you're comparing the CV 1 on the other hand ya.. you're correct... but if you're conparing the S to the vive... you either haven't tried one... or you're flat out lying... the S is far better... and cheaper

The only thing the vive beats the S in is the audio.... but you say its the same... so i know you're comparing the CV1, which is discontinued anyways

In any case you have your opinion... regardless of how ignorant they may be..

And by the way... VR is totally "there" right now... but since it looks like you own two inferior devices... you probably wouldn't know anyways...

I've tried higher end devices... the index, and the vive pro...

VR is totally there, and that's one of the reasons I wrote this thread... to let people know just that

Well you have set your standards really low. VR back in the 90s was just as amazing. 8/10 of the VR community I hang in has VIVE. So much better community at heart, and modding especially.
Your opinions stink bigtime, and youre an obvious facebook shill. To claim the oculus controllers are better must mean you are some kind of console player at heart.

The psvr has far better graphics than the Oculus Quest despite the fact that it has lower resolution. I owned both and the Oculus Quest is terrible because it is so underpowered and the screen door effect is the worst out of every headset. up a reply to: Akragon

posted on Feb, 12 2020 @ 09:54 AM
I cannot believe you would recommend the Oculus Quest over psvr. The Oculus Quest is like wearing a brick on your head and it is extremely underpowered with terrible graphics and screen door effect. The psvr despite having lower resolutions has far better And a great library of games. I returned my Oculus quest after a few days because it's just awful. Very happy with my psvr as are most people which is why it's the best-selling VR head set on the market. reply to: Akragon

I have zero screen door effect on my psvr. . Literally zero a reply to: Akragon
