    Arizona Sunshine (Game) - VR zombie shooter

    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    The shooting looks good, but I still don't like this 'teleport' movement thing that you have in VR ... not that I've ever been able to try out a VR game myself, but I don't really like the look of that 'jump around' form of movement. Not really fussed about VR in general, but it looks like a good game if you were into that kind of gaming ... the sniping looks a bit weird, mind.

    I suspect if you were to press buttons to move/walk forwards it might create motion sickness?

    Mmm ... he seemed to suggest that in his view ... but it still seems a bit weird to me, and there's that kind of 'wobble' with the VR video that's always looked a bit quease-inducing from an outside perspective (or maybe it's like the difference between driving a car and being a passenger in one?)

    When they can plug a game straight into your head and give you all the sensations of real life injected into your brain, a la The Matrix, I'll hop on board.

    Have you tried VR yet? I have to admit it's more impressive that I thought it would be!

    Nope. Haven't had the opportunity, but I've not seen many games that'd make me all that interested either.

    It is very impressive. All that puts me off is:-
    - The cost.
    - The space you need, even if just standing (I've got a tiny study).
    - The fact you can't see the real world. ie: You just want to type in the keyboard.

    Remember when MS announced that Xbox Kinect bollocks and all that 'room scanning' tech - demonstrated in a large space with practically sod-all furniture in it.
