Alright, promising start. Maybe 3 Hololens versions from now we might have the technology just as accurate like it's in the concept video. Then we just need Harold White to finish his warp drive (which was successful in particle experiments), we might just have the glorious future we've ( I ) have been dreaming of.

Here's the real deal by the way.

Yeah the actual demo was really impressive, and should sway a lot of the naysayers who are saying "it won't work as well as the promo video." I mean, it worked pretty damn well! Sure the graphics won't be CGI so they won't be as smooth, but it looked and responded pretty damn smoothly in the live demo!

Oh man, it's like a 2-man Beastie Boys, and that beat is sick!

I lost my original comment when you took the site down (nice work!), but it was something sentimental that ended with an encouragement to keep fighting for justice where it is well-deserved. You are the reason I started actually reading articles on GB, and there's no doubt that many people will follow your work wherever you end up. Your work is important, and means a lot to a helluva lot of people. Don't forget that.

I'm with everyone else in being super confused about Apple's weird, overly conservative policies on their content. Or rather, just the "pornographic" content that contains nudity of any kind. Apple has always been a very liberal, progressive company in their ideals, but for whatever reason rules their App Store with an iron, FOX News fist! Ugh.

I'm shocked that no one is talking about the incredibly broken online co-op for Halo: CE and Halo 2 in this. There is quite a bit of input lag for the second player (the one who isn't hosting), and there is also a lot of latency when it comes to damage and shooting. Apparently this was also an issue with the original release of the Halo: CE Anniversary edition, but it's the first I've ever heard about it. It's easy to die almost instantly because what you see is not what is actually happening. It is incredibly frustrating, more so than any long multiplayer queues. At least when you get into a multiplayer game, it performs as you expect.

Very accurate description of the GamerGate "movement." I honestly don't feel like an official response from the GB crew was needed, but it certainly doesn't hurt.

Great article, and everything sounded encouraging until the end... no loot? Really?! No one at Bungie thought it might be a good idea to provide a legendary/exotic drop after completing something that is expected to take several hours to finish!? Even if they change it, the fact that it starts out that way shows how out of touch Bungie is with this style of game. Here I thought completing strikes on high difficulty settings without loot was bad... but a raid? Terrible.

There is more to this than what Patrick quickly posted. For instance, it has built-in facial tracking now that adjusts the 3D when you view it from an angle. That is awesome. It also now automatically adjusts brightness based on ambient lighting. Kotaku has an extremely comprehensive list of the new features here. I'm not saying I'm going to immediately go buy a new 3DS to replace my XL, but by the time it comes out in the US next year that may sound like more of an option.

I just got bopped right in the feels. Thanks for writing this up, Patrick!

You really need to stop doing these buzzfeed headlines, Patrick.

This is not even remotely a BuzzFeed headline. If anything, it's more like the title of a research paper. Inserting the word "why" into a headline doesn't automatically qualify it as click-bait.
