The Rift is a game "platform" is the same way a TV is. It's a technology that creatures virtual reality. As long as Facebook doesn't turn it into a different device entirely, it's going to stay a VR headset, which means that people will be free to make all the same games they ever were for it.

I literally have no idea what everyone is so mad about. Is it stupid "OMG Facebook is bad because reasons" or is there actual thought going into it.

I like how everyone assumes this means that Facebook is going to be the only group that's allowed to publish games for the tech. Or something, I'm not sure what people are upset about. It's not like all of the games that are being made for the Rift are suddenly going to be cancelled. They're just throwing their money at it so that they can be a part of it when this becomes the next big thing.

The headline is misleading. It's not Sony as in the people who make Playstations, it's Sony Pictures. They might be under the same umbrella, but they're pretty much different companies.

What I took from the topic, is that we're talking something really fucked up. Something that's completely against your most basic beliefs of right and wrong, and the game completely endorses it. Not a case of moral ambiguity, but that this person doing horrible things is the heroic protagonist. Because in that case, no. There are plenty of great games out there. I don't need to give money to the people that made something like that.

If I can just ignore how nonsensical the premise in regards to Tolkien's lore, this looks pretty sweet.

Thanks man, found some videos of it on YouTube, and it looks pretty sweet.

Funny, I was just thinking about Silicon Knights last night. I go to school near their offices, so they tend to come up every now and again.

I really wish that the games industry would just grow up so we can stop writing article about how the games industry needs to grow up. It's kind of depressing that a great game like GTA V gets bogged down by all this crap.

I feel like my teenaged self would hate the soundtrack, I mostly listened to the classic rock station in IV (which is still fucking great) but the classic station in this one is mostly soft rock. It fits the setting well, but I rarely listen to it.

Most played is Radio Los Santos, really like the modern rap they've got in this game. Other than that, Non Stop Pop is surprisingly good, and the DJ is great. Radio Mirror Park has some great music, and West Coast Classic is of course fantastic.

Blue Ark also scores some points, if not for the music, I don't really dig reggae, but for having the funniest DJ. If you haven't heard it, it's some Rastafarian guy who is completely incomprehensible, and it's really funny.

God my Gamertag is cringeworthy. I think I set it in grade 9.
