I was slamming you. Not for your opinion on the Rift, because I neither truly know nor care whether you like it or not. Same for anyone else in the thread.
Feel free to slam me in turn.
And who hates the Rift? Drop that strawman, it's unbecoming.
But you did, undeniably, come running in here with the bit between your teeth and just started spitting out bollocks. You were unusually rude - and combative, but that's not unusual - that's all I was reacting to. Mainly because I wasn't expecting it from you.
The only downer really for me is that no games will be built with this in mind for a while to come - I imagine the gameplay will be OK, but some of the previewers have already said that cutscenes are really freaky because you can perceive yourself withing "kissing distance" of some unholy creation as the camera whizzes about. Wait... scratch that. Monster kissing. That needs to go on the back of the box!
I can't imagine wearing the unit will be comfortable for any really extended periods due to eye fatigue, but then I couldn't even tell you the last time I played a game for really extended periods (well, OK, it was Diablo 3 last weekend but that was the exception that proves the rule).
The Doom 3 BFG Edition will, I hope, justify the cash I've thrown into the Kickstarter. Anything freaky or surreal from the Indie community will be icing on the cake. I'm really hoping this gets some traction.
