Hell, It’s about time…


#204

Has anything cool for VR come out this year?


#205

Barely touched my Vive this year after the finace restricted my space in the living room, but I got my space back now so I’ll be booting it up this week, get it ready for a party I’m hosting this weekend.

Rick and Morty VR came out this year, excited to try that.

EDIT: SUPERHOT VR got released for Oculus & Vive! Definitely picking that one up


#206

Yoooooo nice. I know a lot of people been waiting for that. Wondering how it’ll be received when it comes to the west.


#207

It is? I’ve been contemplating getting it ever since it was linked to me a few days ago. I’ve only just interrogated why I’m interested today. I’ve been trying the beta japanese course for Duolingo for the past week and I was thinking interacting with a fake teenage girl would ironically be less embarassing than using something like Rosetta Stone.


#208

Heh, yeah I can see that being pretty cool! Are you learning to speak it, or read/write as well?

Seeing as I just booked a trip to Japan over the weekend for next spring, I want to learn some japanese myself. I went to that duolingo site just now, why don’t I see Japanese as an option?


#209

It’s available on mobile.

I…know some Japanese. I don’t know how many words total but I know I have a decent memory. I’ve been chewing through the lessons even though I’ve never studied once in my life. Half of me is just pursuing this because I want to find out what my current limit is, and the other half wants to know if I can keep going. I think if I seriously want to learn the language, I’m going to have to learn to read and write. I kinda know I’m going about it in the wrong direction, but I’m going in the direction that would keep be most interested and motivated because I know me.


#210

This might be the most brilliant thing I’ve ever seen.


#211

Ya’ll still playing in VR? Followup: do you still follow VR news?


#212

vr is vdead


#213

I boot up my vive once in a while. Not all that often though, to be honest.

Still follow the news


#214

I’ll wait for the next generation.


#215

Not a bad choice, honestly.


#216

I might have been interested in this if they also announced more games for it.


#217

People keep telling me VR is just getting started, but I refuse to believe the tech will disrupt society in a huge way as smartphones and tablets have. Perhaps decades from now when it’s advanced enough to where it exceeds our expectations, but specifically for gaming, all that has been made are tech demo quality games.
