Good work Chris! Nice to see that you and Danny (for the one show he will probably do right now) keep up the excellent quality of this show. Really interested in seeing how the Oculus Rift and Sony's VR set compare.
In regards to the Bethesda person's comment, I really do think that Nintendo needs to work harder to entice third parties to develop software for their consoles. I primarily buy their consoles for the first party exclusives, but that isn't necessarily enough to always get me to pick their next console iterations up (I do not own a WiiU for example).
crish is good but hes no danny, but then again jess is just perfect for the role jess>>>danny>>>chris
That's awesome that Sony is interested in VR as well. They need to get-in close with the Oculus Rift peeps and get it made to work on their ps4. That will help get an even better stand over Microsoft because I am so flippin stoked for the Oculus Rift I can barely stand it. Having it available for consoles as well would be amazing.
I just want to say that every single fallout fanboy who has the pip boy as their profile pic pisses me to no end because I know they are all losers.
Good job chris.
I never did try the virtual boy but I did try one of these old things back in the day (1991 I believe)
Powered by 2 modded Amiga 3000 if I recall, haha. Commodore was always a little too ahead of their time for their own good.
Hi Chris ! nice to see you on GameSpot News, speaking about Oculus
Rift and VR, both of the gizmos are dependent on games that are going
to be utilized by virtual reality. Is it a good thing for gaming? That
is up to the manufactures of virtual reality gadgets and the developers
who are going to use the feature.
What will be the use of a gadget that can't correct the gameplay or provide an instant solution to a glitch during a gaming a session? both the gadgets are for viewing experience, so that leaves a lot of room for questions whether it is called a true invention or not; each of the providers of the tech might explain better in terms of view-ability and functionality.
and Chris, if you say you are the dlc, then Danny is the added feature, Seb is the supporting update, Shaun is an expansion pack while the protagonist Jess is on holidays.
Some interesting stuff, but somehow I kept thinking of Voltron....
The Nintendo third party news is a good point
The only way it will work for Sony to launch VR is IF they put a LOT of effort into it and price it right. I hope that now with Oculus Rift coming out they will price it competitively. NOT the 900.00 they want for their 3D HMD.
Sony has all the tech they could easily put it all together and it would be a great experience but will they do it... I have my doubts. and its a shame really.
As for the VR thing, since I have amblyopia (lazy eye is the common name) I will not get excited for it until I get to test it. I can't play 3D games at all (with or without those fancy glasses) so I don't think I'll be able to play Vr games either, so I'm not buying it until I try it.
I don't think the X1 development was rushed, but their policy changes were. They had a lot of bad ideas that were presented in a bad way at the wrong time, how could they fail to see the backlash coming is beyond reasoning, but they reacted quickly tso the X1 is looking a lot better now.
Nintendo is in trouble when it comes to third-party devs (again). I don't think they will recover their support, but since Nintendo it's doing it's own thing (as always) they may be just fine with their first-party software. I hope.
Im very concerned about the VR failure that may come up shoving it up our faces again.. If Sony and the oculus want to succeed on the VR market. then they better make a proper functional machine that doesnt cause eye strain or any other side effects.
I love Bestheda games, but man its run by Nazis, I'm sure of it. Why cant everyone be chilled and hippy like Valve.
Good to see Chris is keeping up the tradition of awesome t-shirts.
Not entirely surprised about a Sony VR headset. They released the HMZ-1 a little while back & they had an augmented reality prototype as well with a forward facing camera. Competition is always good for the consumer, so hopefully this turns out to be something good.
Nintendo should have gotten their focus straight if they planned on playing ball with the big guys. Surfing on in-house titles and low-cost hardware expecting the big studios to take a leap of faith into their ancient hardware ain't how it works. Stick to what you know best Nintendo, or you should have waited and made that console x86 like Sony and Microsoft and get into the competition, not be a smiling bistander with an oversized mustache.
He's not playing by the rules. He hasn't replied to a single comment. :( You're destroying the democracy Jess created.
With thanks to Chris' wardrobe. Was worried about my T-Shirt of the Day game having to be put on hold while Jess was away.
Added bonus, I feel like less of a perv staring at Chris' chest.
@_yuriy_ Says the guy with the generic "I went water ski-ing on holiday!!" picture. Loser.
@cameronrobinson The Oculus Rift needs a big ol' pair of googly eyes on the front.
@cameronrobinson Ah yeah! Not sure how I missed that the first time I watched it. I did spot Sarah at least.
@Zo26 I think that, like any gaming peripheral or any gaming system, it's gonna be all about the games. If devs can conjure up compelling experiences, then people will go for it en masse. If not, it'll be relegated to the museum of failed niche peripherals.
How could I flame you for liking Chris. Chris is great.
@VakarianGirl They have different styles, it's not that one is better than the other, so why would we flame you? You like his style better.
@VakarianGirl at some points she does get a tad annoying
@xtraflossy I hope it doesn't involve her urinating on the camera, there are other websites for that.
@xtraflossy oh my.
@masfima1 OMG THIS! THIS x 1000!!
@Trickymaster It posted later than usual yesterday, so I was home/asleep for much of the time between now and then. Coming up earlier today, though, so I can fall in line with Noble Leader McDonnell's vision.
@Trickymaster OFF WITH HIS HEAD!
@StonerDemon You've just been deceived!
@prime_l "T-Shirt of the Day", ei? That is quite a new idea....
And please, don't look on the chest, you're giving me creeps :DDDDD
@Chris_Watters@Zo26Exactly, can't agree more on that, the tech advancement is completely new, although an old concept that was incredibly impossible before; the addition of devices in gaming experience might get to a resolution onward., either positive or negative, the guys who are making the gadgets and the guys who are putting the gadgets to use, are at the leading position, so lets see what news comes up, btw, great coverage though, interesting mix of news.
