I have no idea how spectating works in VR but that's damn tempting.

As far as I know, if there's a desktop window that shows the action, I should be able to broadcast it... it might not work that way if it's NOT displayed on the desktop though.

Well if I notice ya playing and I'm not doing anything I'll probably pop in then. xD . You'll have to tell me if it's any good or how it compares though. I haven't played the desktop one, on some imaginary dream that THIS would actually happen...and well what do you know, here we are.

Come to think of it I think a friend of mine did pop into a VR broadcast one time and started messaging "WTF is this" because the camera was all weird and he didn't realize it was a VR game, lol. It's been awhile, though. I've got a couple friends that like to just pop in and watch random games I'm playing, though I almost never do the same. *shrug*

I've got decent internet and it doesn't slow most games down to broadcast, so I just leave it open to friends and let them do their thing.

Yeah, I've got it set up to auto allow friends to spectate me in games, but few people do. The one time I remember someone popping in to watch a broadcast was me reading through a bad visual novel (Sakura Spirit) and I think it was mostly his curiosity as to whether it was worth buying for full price (it wasn't).

Oh god...that was the one--the ONE of the Sakura---blahdy blah games I actually played. A friend gifted it to me when it was $5 out of spite, and because I'm an a******, I played through it and gave him a thorough report of the events of the game. Yup.

Trashy fan service with no pay off. Though I hear the 'newer' Sakura games at least got more daring and have uncensored bits...but still, they're dime a dozen garbage, from what I've seen.

Oh and mind you, this is the same friend who gifted me Secret of the Magic Crystals---basically Barbie Pony simulator, the game. I played multiple hours of that, only while that friend was online, and gave him 'very excited/serious' feedback on every aspect of the game. You gift me a s*** game, I will make you regret it. Or block me from Steam, not sure which. xD

"Cell phones are going to die a gory death. They're big, clunky, cost a fortune, the battery life is pathetic, and everyone should clearly just stick to using land lines and answering machines."

Thank you Nostrildamus because your predictions stink It's so good of you to tell us how things are bad and there is just no way that anything will ever get better so that's why it's going to die.

None of those things were true when cell phones were brought to consumers. Comparing using a joystick/headset vs controller/tv against using a phone literally anywhere vs just your home is a false dichotomy. I don't know why the internet is so bad at analogies.

I remember right here on this board , ten years ago , when people said things like :

"You obviously don't understand technology - Every game in the future will be 3D"

LMAO

These are the same types of people that are now refusing to accept the death of VR.

Sounds like someone who doesn't know Car-phones were a thing, and that "Cellphones" were once giant suitcase-size things with oversized receivers and terrible batteries. Even the original "Brick" phone still suffered issues with being insanely expensive for the average person, hugely clunky, having battery life issues and so on.

The Blackberry wasn't the start of the consumer-level cell phone. All those insanely expensive, clunky, and inconvenient-to-use issues were part of what kept early cell phones from being something everyone had. They were a consumer product, but way too damn expensive for the average person to own.

Not to mention the fees that went with using one of those. Costing a few bucks a minute to talk on one just added to the expense of ownership. Something can be a "consumer" product but still not friendly or viable on the market.

This thread just made me swear out loud because I was part of the party that said GalGun would be the perfect thing to be in VR, and that I would be more interested in it if they made it VR.
And well here we f***ing are, they found there market, made a thing, and are shoving my own words down my throat.
Someone buy it for me or at least buy it for yourself and tell me how it compares to the normal game and/or rather or not it's worth my time and $25.

It's very barebones. If you're already a Gal*Gun fan and you really want to meet the girls in VR, it's probably worth the purchase. If you haven't played any Gal*Gun games before, though, Gal*Gun Double Peace is infinitely better, even taking the price difference into account.

And, yeah, anybody saying VR is dead/dying/etc doesn't own one. Throw away that $15 Google Cardboard and try a real headset. The tech is simply amazing. It could definitely be improved but all the important tech is there and it works fantastically. The immersion and sense of presence is nailed down.

Maybe you don't remember. Maybe you're thinking of a different time.

I'm talking about the time when few people owned cell phones because:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motorola_DynaTAC
The battery allowed for a call of up to 60 minutes, after which it was necessary to charge the phone up to 10 hours in a trickle charger or one hour in a fast charger, which was a separate accessory.

WOW, You could talk for a whole hour! Then you had to take it home and charge it for 1 hour if you had the right accessory.

Alternately you had it in your car because then it could use the car battery.

I don't know who you're talking about but it certainly wasn't me. I was mildly interested in the concept of 3D in games and I even went as far as to try a few games with red/blue glasses (since it didn't require any special hardware) but I don't think I ever said that all games would be 3D.

I never really cared about 3D games because it's just like 3D movies: Nobody made games especially for 3D, nobody was able to do things in 3D games that you couldn't do on a normal monitor.

However you CAN do things in VR that wouldn't be possible on a normal TV/monitor. I tell you what though... you can keep saying that VR is going to die and we'll see how many years it takes for you to eat your words (if you don't slink off into the shadows hoping nobody will remember).

Well that's kind of a bummer. Haven't played Double Peace yet, as mentioned...May pick it up, I really dunno, if I'm honest.
