Now VR has battle royale

Valver

4 days ago

PC has a number of VR battle Royale options already... the most well known is probably Stand Out which released via Early Access on Steam in Dec last year...

I'm most excited by the already excellent VR CS-GO-alike "Pavlov" adding a Battle Royale mode though. That's the one to watch IMO.

@TheGreenYamo If you can dig it out there are cheap PS1 to USB converters on Ebay/Amazon that I think would let you use it again on a PC :-)

@_TheDarkSide_ yes, an up to date version for Xbone or PS4 would be great. I'd buy one for the convenience - I have a full racing wheel/pedals and sim seat setup for VR already, and it can be a slog to get it out and set it up when you just want a quick race.

Lord know why MS insisted on releasing that silly Wireless Racing Wheel peripheral (the U shaped one you wave about in the air...)

My favourite peripheral was the NeGcon - the twisty racing controller from Namco for use with RidgeRacer on the PS1. The way it sort of worked like an analogue steering wheel was great. And it had analogue face button too (with quite a bit of button travel) that meant holding the right revs was easy. Shame it died a death, it was actually pretty effective.

Brilliant sim (with a wheel) on PC. I've put many hours into it. It's also great in VR. Fingers crossed Competizione also supports VR (and does menus in VR properly too -like ProjectCars 2) Really looking forward to this!!

Me, myself and UI

Valver

4 months ago

I've been really enjoying all the unique and quirky UI's that VR games have been throwing at us recently. The "alien" UI in Lone Echo for example is neat - it makes you use gripping and twisting motions of elements to fit them together to unlock doors. Not sure its actually a very useful solution in that specific example, but its neat all the ideas game creators are experimenting with.

@Calib4n While I'll happily agree that Forza is a very pretty looking game, this is an article about GTSport and driving games in general *in VR*. And Forza doesn't support VR - even on PC. So how is your comment even vaguely relevant? It just looks like you're trying to stir up a fanboy fight... sad really.

The best story driven DLC I've yet encountered was Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty, for Borderlands 2. I really liked the new characters (is it wrong that I kinda fancy a digital female pirate?!!) and the new location had a great theme to it, which fitted perfectly with BL2's graphical style. Plus it was damn good fun to get MOAR GUNZ N LOOT!

Interested! But I have to say the AI looks a little ropey. Check 2m.10s into the video where the player pops round a cop car to come face to face with a crouching officer. The player then proceeds to mooch about in front of him, reloading and generally "being a sitting duck" while the cop crouches there like a lemon and does nothing but fire one warning shot into the sky. Player should've been turned into swiss cheese!!

Reality Crumbles: Whatever happened to VR?

Valver

6 years ago

I once used virtuality kit during an "upcoming tech" semminar we had at work (Glaxo during the mid-90s). The virtual application they demo'd allowed you to move and spin protein molecules in 3D space and to walk round and view them - the idea being you could get a handle on protein/enzyme interactions more easily. The feeling of immersion was sublime. There was a fixed pole in the middle of the room that the target protein sat on and as you walked round it the headset tracked your position and so forth. To this day I've never experienced anything quite like it. I went home and dreamt of all the awesoem games I'd love to play using it :) I'd love VR to make a come back.

Somewheat related - our department got several Silicon Graphics O2's with attached 3D shutter glasses a year or two later - again to help visualise molecules and proteins. Also cool, but not in the same immersive league as the VR.

Hmm, a very dissapointing review, I felt. For such a large AAA release there really isnt much detail or depth to the text.

Hardly any mention of the PC specific features, Origin, battlelog etc. Are they good, do they work?

I don't want to play this on console (I have a 360 and a PS3) and yet I see reference to the slightly dodgy graphics on 360 - but no counter information on whether the PC is better/worse, or suffers any platform specific quirks.

If the review is based on one system - please state as much up front so at least I can disregard it and move on to one that suits my system of choice...

Who's to say that when it comes back again it'll be secure then anyway? Sony don't exactly have a great track record with security and DRM in general. Yeah, they're doing a re-write of PSN - big whoop! That's just an opportunity for their under-pressure coders to make more mistakes and leave vulnerabilities !

Wouldnt suprise me if someone decided it hack it again just for shits and giggles.

On a more positive note - bring back PSN online play quickly please. I dont want my PS3 gather dust anymore.
