The average age is 31? Unfortunately, at 29 I'm the only person among my friends who still plays games with any regularity.

Yeah, Cyrenll's comment was an odd one. I guess he never thought to compare Eddie's troll-baiting article titles and slants to IGN's more neutral ones (when the articles are about the same topic).

@balrogbane Seems like a hard game to review. Objectively, it's a big pile of shit with bad physics, hardly any variety in interaction, and loads of glitches, but that's supposedly "the point".

It's just a cute and quirky thing that lends itself well to becoming a brief fad. I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't review it.

Yeah I've been reading up on it while "watching" March Madness, but smartphone browsing is somewhat frustrating. I'll just Google it on my PC when I get home. I'm also curious as to what the various VC firms' stake is with that $75 million contribution. It's an interesting situation. Thanks for the response.

Serious question: How important was Kickstarter to the development of Rift? I see Oculus VR raised $90 million total for the project, but only $2.4 million of that came from Kickstarter donations. That's a pretty small percentage, but people speak as if it wouldn't exist without it.

Just curious about the timeline.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> True, Kickstarter wasn't nearly enough to fund the project. It actually raised less than $3 million. The vast majority of it ($75 million) came from the venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz, whose co-founder is on Oculus VR's board, and he obviously had a say in selling it to Facebook. So he's probably excited about the return on investment he and his firm will get.

@HipHopBeats She's a companion character from Dragon Age: Origins, whose actions in that game left us with a cliffhanger. She's a witch with a dry sense of humor and despite being morally dubious, is still likeable.

She's also one of the most popular companion characters from any Bioware game, which is saying something because despite their faults as far as main plots go, they still do characters pretty damn well.

I could see myself buying one of these things eventually, but I won't be an early adopter.


Hopefully they're comfortable enough that using them regularly over the course of a year or more won't leave an impression on your face, like glasses do on your nose, but they look like they might. Even bottled drinks can create scarring on your mouth if you drink from them often enough for long enough.

@guardianofhonor Er... Are you experiencing a processing malfunction? It should be obvious that I'm referring to the fact that you've posted a ton on this article and seem quite upset, not the fact that you clicked on it.
