Your thoughts on Occulus Rift?

Every time I hear about some odd new thing done with a Rift my reasons for needing one grows. I don't even care much about the gaming potential. There's just a ton of fun things people are doing with them and I'd love to try it out.

From what's been explained so far, it seems the effect is quite impressive. Tax return splurge confirmed.

Personally? It's yet another gimmick that has a group frothing at the mouth. I'll stick with a good, large screen and if I'm desperate to have a free look functionality then I'll waste money on Track IR. No desire to wear a bulky pair of goggles though.

Looks great and hopefully it takes off. But I'm personally gonna wait for a smaller model and one that looks more stylish lawl

I think I'll wait a few years til it's cheaper and implemented into more things.


Assuming you're still alive in a few years. Can happen at any time, may as well just get it.

Personally, I don't game for how I appear to others. I game for my own entertainment.

I think it's silly. Much prefer to use a screen than a VR helmet.

I don't care about how I appear to others, I care about how I appear to myself tho. Its mostly that I hate wearing things, headphones, headsets, glasses, they annoy me.

You sound like one without it.

I must be doing something right then.
