As much as I want Oculus to 'win', point 1 seems like a misdirection. Zenimax said Carmack's code was used to establish the initial Rift, not that it was in it now.

Interesting article. Thanks Patrick and SnakeVS.

OMG that was wonderful. I totally took me back to when I was a kid and a new RD series would start, I'd be in awe at all the clips with so much exciting potential.

Awesome article Patrick, totally covered all the issues very fairly.

The thing I really don't trust here is the second "," used in Patrick's title:

Facebook, Oculus, and Trust

The Oxford Comma is the mightiest of all commas!

Positives:

1. Palmer Luckey is presumably now fabulously rich. Which is I'm really happy for.

2. Oculus now has a near limitless amount of backing. Remember how they kept saying they couldn't get the screens they wanted because they weren't a big player.... now they're a big player. this could greatly help the affordability and quality of the device.

Negatives:

1. Carmack now works for Facebook. It may be irrational, but that makes me cringe.

2. They may have a weird change in focus direction, but we'll have to wait and see about that.

btw The register has the best news title: "Oculus VR goggs maker VANISHES into Facebook's dystopian MAW"

As much as I like the idea of mixing it up with magic... I know I'll end up going all strength with a massive shield and ridiculously heavy sword.

Agh, you nailed so many of the effects. It worked sooo well.

Well done!

Vinny doing Euro Truck Simulator 2 and Bus Simulator, have been some of the funniest moments on the site.

As soon as I saw this on steam I was begging for a Quick Look.

What do you think it would be like if they uploaded a copy of their own game to pirate sites, but with several textures (which you wouldn't see until you've played the game for an hour or two) swapped with text that says "Please don't pirate our game!". I think that would be pretty funny, and wouldn't punish people who got the game from legitimate sources.

Thanks for the heads up about this, I had no idea Wii emulation was so good. I feel totally ethically ok with it as I have a wii, but its disk drive is broken, and I bought several games I've just never been able to play. :D now where did I leave that bluetooth dongle :/
