    I just don't see how FPS viewpoints can truly work in VR. I mean, it seems like a perfect fit but thinking about it, I can't picture how they can really blend the game cam with your actual head movements - either we control it with a standard controller, causing motion sickness and disorientation since your head remains stationary, or we use our own eyes and head to move the viewpoint, in which case we better get used to running around our houses in expensive blindfolds as I sure can't turn my neck 360 degrees

    After reading interviews with some of the team developing Rift I have to agree with you. Their opinion is that FPS games are too fast, intense and too in-your-face and are actually startling and uncomfortable with the Rift on.

    I've not had too much trouble with them in general myself beyond a bit of tunnel vision after extended sessions but I know a lot of people find FPS games give them motion sickness and I just worry that completely covering your eyes and ears (essentially sensory deprivation) will lead to some pretty traumatic experiences both emotionally and physically

    pokemon. That needs virtual reality.

    Amnesia... such a good idea and bad idea at the same time. I struggled so much to finish that game. It scared the bejeezus out of me.

    I near peed my pants as well. I haven't played the newest one, but Dark Descent was an experience. Would be scary as shee-tah in VR.

    why is everyone talking as if Facebook turn the occulus into a farmville machine? They just bought Occulus barely a few days ago; we don't know the future just yet. I'm getting flashbacks to when Disney bought Marvel, and that turned out fine.

    They would definitely expand them, ill sure as hell be up for Metroid Prime, especially with the Wiimote+Nunchuck Controls, horribly underrated. This whole Rift Facebook boogaloo is getting shaky, we should be patient.
  • Griffin_Vacheron - March 29, 2014 12:21 a.m.

    Absolutely agree about Prime. I adore the Wii control scheme.
  • shawksta - March 29, 2014 11:20 p.m.

    Same thing with Pikmin. New Play Control Pikmin 1 and 2, and Pikmin 3 used the Wii mote Nunchuck Combo for its controls and its really much more better.

    Yeah, those games sure would be cool. Unfortunately all we'll be getting is a VR Farmvill.

    No Rape-Lay?
  • Jackonomics2.0 - March 27, 2014 4:48 p.m.

    Virtual Reality, because we need more first person games.
  • Vonter - March 28, 2014 6:26 p.m.

    We need less shooters, I'll like more FPS if they were risk takers like Mirror's Edge.

    I don't know if you understand this but Zuck owns the rift now, all hope is definitively lost

    All hail the Zuker-borg
