    Time to hang out here for a bit again
  2. Virtual Reality

    I was hoping no one would notice The physics for that button is a bit off, so I always struggle with it. I keep hopping from one headset to the next, which is nice, but it's also a sign of the VR hardware scene in a nutshell. Never anything that's 100% what I want. If I could have Pico + Quest Pro controllers, I'd be happy for the next years. The Pico is aaaalmost there. But the limitations of inside-out tracking still annoys me. Interesting read. A lot of youtubers and people praise it as the second coming, so it's nice to see some actual reviews with no bias. Even though, it seems like a proper good introduction to VR for new players though, and the more people who try VR, the more mainstream it will become. Hopefully it will spike a big surge of new VR software with actual quality behind it. Resident Evil Village is one that I'd love to try. A full fledged RE game with full VR support? Yes please! Only downside with the system is that we'll probably get an even more split market with more exclusives at Sony and Meta. I wish it was more "VR for everybody!" mentality, but money is money.

    Okay, so this is not going to be about the PSVR2 (but congrats to everyone who gets one :D), but I recently bought a Pico 4 after considering it for a long, long time. I mainly play PCVR games, so my Quest didnt really exist as a platform for me. No games bought, no risk in switching to another standalone headset. I ended up weighing the pros vs the cons from a PCVR standpoint. And man, oh man, it was the right call. The headset is light, and the form factor is super small compared to the usual fresnel lens headsets. The balance is perfect with the (larger) battery on the back, and the pancake lenses... Oh man, the switch is amazing. The entire lens is the sweetspot, and it's crazy to pop it on and just "see" at once without needing to adjust the headset until I hit the spot. The controllers are better than the Q2. They feel solid, and of great quality, and the tracking is properly good. Q2 level, but a bit better. The fact that the tracking "rings" are to the sides of the controllers makes everything steady. Here's a short video of me testing out the tracking in Pavlov on a 40 m target. On quest, my controllers would have a tiny, tiny shake from just holding them still, making these hits very hard/impossible. I don't get that at all on Pico 4. Now I'm just looking forward to moving house (in about three months) so I can get my PC wired and hook up a router to get the Pico wireless with Virtual Desktop. It's supposedly really well done, and offers an experience on par with, or better than, the HP Reverb G2, which is actually pretty insane. I just hope my PC is powerful enough to handle it

    Looks amazing! The combat and combo animations are so well done. Looking forward to playing this sometime... in 2023 maybe.

    Well, now that they've upped the price, as well as launched a 1500 dollar headset, it might change. This probably doesn't bode well for the price point of the Quest 3 either, and if people go in thinking they're gonna pay 3-400 dollars for that, they're in for a surprise. I think we're looking at a price closer to 6-800 dollars, and that doesn't have foveated rendering or eye tracking.
  6. Virtual Reality

    This right here! I was going to post something similar after seeing all the backlash. I mean, it's more or less just the reality. You're not paying for a simple accessory. You're playing for a display with 4K HDR OLED screens, tracking cameras, 90-120 FPS, 2x highly specced out controllers (!!), foveated rendering (!!!), which is better than even most high-end PCVR or standalone VR headsets. You thought this was going to be cheap? Do the math, I'd say. Better to realise that this is a beast on a whole different level than PSVR. That was junk in comparison, and it didn't even come with the complete package. The only thing this device is missing are the new pancake lenses. Other than that it looks to be a top of the line headset, and you get what you pay for here. I'm hoping we'll get this updated or modded for PC as soon as possible, along with support for the eye tracking and controller haptics. That'll probably make this the main headset for a lot of PCVR enthusiasts.

    Pasting this from Reddit, which made a lot of sense in my opinion: No matter the outcome, this will only go bad for her future career as a VA, probably won't see many jobs with an attitude like this.
  8. Xenoblade Chronicles 3 (29th July 2022)

    Excuse me, what??? This makes it way easier! Also I'm in the same boat as you, doing loads of side quests while in chapter 6. Some of them are really good! And i just got Ino, the new DLC hero. Pretty cool character
  9. Bayonetta 3 (28th October)

    That looks sooo smooth, and very impressive for a Switch game! I actually really love how Viola looks and play. Going to be a good counter to Bayonetta and Jean. Also, what was with that scene with Jar-head Luca? Hopefully they'll implement more of the cast into the world in this way. Looks fun.

    BoneLab is out, and it has gotten a bit of a mixed reception. I love it, and am really enjoying the experience as well as the story. There are parts of the game that is hard to understand, especially with the "absolutely no hand holding"-attitude Stress Level Zero has (almost to a fault), but if you get through the hurdles or just try and explore, you can mostly figure it out pretty quickly. I really love the new avatar swapping mechanic, and feel it adds to the flow of the game. Going to play through it first with a clean playthrough before starting to import modded characters and try to mod in my own.

    Also a major shout out to the voice cast, they're killing it in this game. So much emotion in their voice, and it sounds so believable! Crazy good acting. Love that they're still embracing the British Isles-focused voice casting. Not too many actors with as thick of an accent as Nia though, but still varied and with great quality.
  12. Xenoblade Chronicles 3 (29th July 2022)

    I just finished chapter 5, and I was utterly destroyed. I haven't cried like that in ages.
  13. Virtual Reality

    So, surprisingly enough, BoneLab is releasing this week, on thursday. I'm really, really looking forward to it, and seeing where the game goes forward. I really think the way they open up the way for modders will be really awesome, and the avatar stuff looks really, really cool. And that it works on a quest natively is crazy!
  14. Virtual Reality

    New headsets from Pico getting an announcment this thursday. Rumored to be shown are the Pico Neo 4 (Quest 2 competitor) and the Pico Neo 4 Pro (Cambria/Quest Pro competitor), with a lot of good upgrades. Pancake lenses, foveated rendering, new controllers, eye and face tracking etc. Rumors are saying the Quest Pro (Project Cambria) will be priced at around $1500, which is insane. The Pico Neo 4 Pro will be significantly less, somewhere between $800-1000. We'll see at the announcement though. Also, for PCVR players, Pico has a great feature where they have a DisplayPort port directly in the headset, which lets you use it as a regular PCVR HMD. No data compression like you get on Quest 2.
  15. Fire Emblem Engage (20th Jan 2023)

    I wish there will be skins for the main character, because I honestly can't stand that combination of colors. If they'd been more subtle, or toned down, or just one of them be toned down, I could probably roll with it. But they're both too... dominant to work together. Ugh.
