Today’s Crate & Crowbar moved Tides of Numenera from “I’ll see when it’s on sale” to “omg I need to play this now but I don’t have time.”

Great point in particular about the artificial single-use disposability of sidequest characters in pretty much every open-world RPG ever. Makes it easier to deal with the consequences of player choice but it’s such a waste of characterization.

Actually, would it even be unfeasible for a small team at Bioware to reuse ME’s engine and pipeline to make a narrative-only game on a limited budget?

Not a small team, but giving Forza’s engine & assets to a third party produced two of the best games ever so why does no one else do that?

Okay, the 128GB Mini is now at the price 32GB was last year. So, to sell 32GB now, it’d have to be $300, which I guess would be too cheap.

(How little profit margin for an Apple product obviously. I’m sure it’s quite healthy enough.)

I get that the intention is probably “prove that defeating him wasn’t just sheer luck” but the effet is more like “go fuck yourself.”

How come Oculus Touch ships with a guitar mount for Rock Band VR, but Rock Band VR can’t use the Rift’s Bluetooth connection for the guitar?

As a Mac person it didn’t even occur to me that the motherboard I was buying in 2016 might not include support for wireless everything.

I knew PSVR had better screen but Oculus puts its worst foot forward with lots of white-on-black text. People weren’t kidding about godrays.

Perfectly fine in-game, of course; better GPU and tracking easily make up for it, and I haven’t even received the Touch controllers yet.

Tracking is not flawless — ever-so-slightly floaty — but it’ll tide me over nicely until the next generation of Lighthouse headsets.

Always thought I’d keep the PSVR for exclusives, but I might as well sell it, for all that I want to put it on my head again.

I did not sign up for a photorealistic tarantula when I downloaded your fucking VR escape room demo.

TIL that USB-C has an alternate mode where two consenting devices can let go of the USB standard and do whatever they want over four lanes.

Yesterday was all freebies and pre-owned. Today I choose VR games to buy. I should commit to a maximum budget first. Like, I should.

PSVR did something to me that no amount of ginger or sea sickness meds could alleviate. But I can spend an entire day in the Rift just fine.

Weirdest thing is Rift has the same kind of occasional tracking hiccups that destroyed me in PSVR—but here they’re just mildly inconvenient.

Always felt better about Unreal than Unity, but there are tons of assets & help for music viz in Unity and I was born to make VR drug trips.
