All I care about at the moment is that it will be a VR game.
DAoC was plagued with endless crowd control skills. It killed the game.
Shadowbane is a perfect example of open world PvP's mistakes.
Darkfall is another example of how not to make a game. Lose your city when you are at work.
I don't even know if Frontier knows who is and isn't playing in VR. I didn't have to buy ED for VR, I just bought ED. I can play it on my monitory and say "I feel like playing VR", log out and log back…
I don't doubt any of this. You seem to know your VR tech well, and I agree that current E:D already proved to be an excellent fit for VR.
Where we disagree:
- I don't think you can extrapolate to the playerbase based on y…
ED has only sold 1.4 million copies. I'd be willing to bet that between 20-25% (probably more) of those were purchased for VR. I don't know many people with VR HMDs that don't own ED. On that same not…
Base building was never mentioned outside of the "dataminers" behind the original roadmap leak speculating on assets they saw, so not a big deal there.
VR users are a minuscule portion of their profits, so making sure t…
MMORPG.com has done some VR set reviews:
I haven't heard good things about the Odyssey HMDs but I'd be lying if I said I have tried one. The way you make it sound, you also have bad things to say about them.
I can tell you that in my CV1 Rift I could not read the small text on my ship in …
I played Alyx and before that probably I don't know, Elite?
I have about 10-15 VR games in my library I'm not sure which one was the last I played.
But in VR games look like you're playing in 480p on a normal screen so …
In my opinion at this point VR works extremely well for games like Elite Dangerous. Not that much going on screen while retaining 100% of immersion. I haven't seen a VR game with the complex sceneries and details we're used to see…
Well, personally I am upgrading only if there is a game that I say: "I want to play this in the best possible way." I have a good ergonomic mouse but not a very expensive gaming mouse because I cannot justify this either. But it …
Ask yourself could this game be done equally well without VR? If the answer is yes - the VR for that game is a likely a gimmick
Ask yourself if VR was taken out of the equation and the game was a normal non…
You are simply being dishonest if you can even begin to compare current clunky and imprecise VR controls to a mouse and keyboard. A MMORPG with our current technology will not work... The genre requires limitless hours of g…
VR still lacks a "killer must play" game.
Has a few ok games and a bunch of below average and crap games.
The games that all VR fans tell you are great totally average games.
Ask yourself could this game be done equally well wit…
At the end of the day, I'm just happy MMORPG did a quick article on a VR game. There's a lot of good VR games out and more scheduled for release this year. Hopefully we will see more articles on those games here.
The controls for even the best VR game right now are garbage and barely intuitive. People are only in awe of the visuals, while the actual gameplay sits at the back of the bus.
Are you for real? The controllers are e…
