This game is crying out for Morpheus support so some optimisation to hit a solid 60 fps will be needed if so but Crytek claim to have the largest VR dev team available so they should be able to help achieve this.

Video: Is the world ready for virtual reality?

optimusprym8

I'm sorry, I thought Eurogamer was a gaming and games tech website.

@pimlicosound - refresh rates, resolution and latency are some the most critical areas surrounding VR development at the moment, especially in order to reduce the simulator sickness that people like @SarcasticJoe get. If it's ever to become mainstream, it needs to offer the highest and lowest possible.

If you are remotely techy and into games, I'd get a DK2 as there's a lot of old games supporting it and new demos and content releasing every day. Once you've flown the trench run, you won't judge again!

@Dantonir there are lots of differences. When you purchase a game normally you are financing the studio, publisher, retailer, distributor and CEOs holidays at a golf resort. The main difference is that all, bar 10% admin feed to kickstarter and Amazon for payments, the funds go to the dev studio for development. Yes a higher risk, especially with projects that showcase themselves as a concept only, but at least you know where (mostly) your money is going towards

NB. You didn't need to delete your post dude :)

@DoctorFouad fair point but I don't think you'll ever see a kickstarter do that because it's not designed to. As I say, if you want all that, go the traditional investment route but be expected to stump up much more than 12

Based on previous experience and research into successful kickstarter projects, this is destined to fail. It's only got 70 in three days. If a project hasn't got 20% of the goal within the first couple of days, may as well forget it

optimusprym8

@FladgeMangle Not had a go on Morpheus to be honest but the prototype specs match Oculus DK2, whereas Oculus will continue to improve and have an ever advancing hardware base to capitalise on. Fair enough the commercial, end-product of Morpheus may come with slightly higher specs but the base hardware will always be a PS4. I appreciate that devs get more out of a system as time goes on but ultimately, it's a limited system overall. Yes PS4 may be able to do 1080p/60fps with one screen but I'm not convinced it will cope in the long term to display essentially two outputs at this level.

Am happy to be proved wrong, in fact I look forward to it. Roll on E3 and hopefully some concrete information

Evolve community manager fired after Twitter racism controversy

optimusprym8

4 years ago

He's got 143,000 followers (at this point, not sure how much this number has changed since the news of his firing) and clearly states his job / company association in his Twitter profile, therefore he should have used intelligence. He even states he has another Twitter account for other purposes which is much more personal and unrelated to work life.

Although it was his personal account, he has a large number of followers as a result of his current and previous roles as community manager for big titles. Gamers follow their CMs personal accounts, even though most CMs clearly state they are personal and unrelated to their work, they often still end up promoting their work. The line between their work and personal accounts gets very fuzzy due to the nature of their roles and the personas they project externally online.

This guy should have thought more about what his statement could result in; employment laws in the US are very much on the side of the employer. If he were EU-based, he'd still have a job most likely.

@7M7 1. I wear glasses and have no problem with the Oculus with the headset extended out fully. Not saying that you don't find it uncomfortable

2. Palmer's original aim for Oculus was to try to release it for as close to free if not for free as possible, to gain massmarket penetration knowing they can make the money back on software. Since the Fb purchase, he has said it will allow them to significantly reduce purchase cost

Of course Sony won't sell to Facebook nor would they make the PS4 compatible with Oculus. They specialise in creating similar / lower spec hardware wrapped up in pretty plastic design and then creating custom connections and sockets whilst charging 30% more than their competitors for the name

Mercenary Kings review

optimusprym8

4 years ago

Enemy respawns, terrible controls, pointless 8-bit graphics (in the cut-scenes) and repetitive gameplay made this an insta-delete for me.

I love a bit of old-school retro gaming and nice to see something like this but you don't have to replicate everything that was bad about the technology or genre at the time in a modern version. Everything we've learnt about gameplay since those heady days seems to have been ignored completely for the sake of it.

Shame
