Game looks pretty good, hopefully it gets a lot of people playing it.

People seem to like those dragon balls a ton.

This was a fun read, would be interested to check out similar assessments for more titles, like Tekken and Virtua Fighter (is that still a thing?).

VF5:FS is the last release. I have the PS3 version, and last time I launched it hardly anyone was playing, and the people who were weren't close enough to me to get a decent a connection.

I'm still hoping for VF6, but I'm not holding my breath.

Also, everyone with any interest in fighting games needs to read the book linked at the bottom of the article. It's really great.

@reticulate: as much as i don't want to see homeless people because it saddens me knowing there are people who do not have a home, i don't fancy the idea of getting paid "free money". I feel proud when i get paid knowing i worked hard for what i earned, its a simple reward for action system. i think a reward for no effort doesn't seem like something we should go towards and instead finding new areas of work we can place people into. there is always ideas for something, we just have to wait for a thing or someone to bring new jobs in. But that's just my opinion.

I guess it comes down to a simple question. Are you more put off by the idea that someone might get money they didn't work for, or that children of people that for whatever reason are out of work (doesn't matter if they're incapable of finding work, or simply too lazy to) get victimized and have to grow up in abject poverty through no fault of their own.

Personally, I'm more than happy paying taxes to make sure we have a system where we can guarantee a basic standard of living for everyone. More than happy. That means decent health care for everyone, decent schools, as well as programs to get people qualified to work if they aren't.

Minecraft on the Vive via a free mod is a hell a lot better than that Oculus version.

Yeah, I really like Minecrift. Keeps getting better too.

And rec room is amazing. I feel guilty about it being free every time I play it.

@oursin_360: Soundstage is great. I'm no virtual mozart or anything, but it's a lot of fun.

Same with tiltbrush. I've no artistic talent but it's a lot of fun. Very relaxing.

I'll say that I thought Edge of Nowhere was pretty neat. I think I played it for a couple hours straight? Didn't complete it though.

It is a very traditional/basic sort of.. Uncharted type thing. So doing it without VR would be dumb IMO.

I thought it was fairly immersive and creepy. Some good audio. Looked great.

If you look at Edge of Nowhere (or other VR games) as just a game, against all other games, its obviously not that good. As a VR game though, its fairly impressive. And I kind of do think we need to view them separately as VR is like.. on a different conceptual/mechanical/gameplay path now. It's obviously a ways behind standard games. It's going to take awhile for devs to figure it out.

Money is money though. You either want to experience VR stuff and allow yourself to enjoy it, or no matter what they do at this point, you'll be weighing your dollars spent and compare that to what else you could spend it on.

Comes down to the individual person and their interests.

That's my issue with it though. From watching it it really doesn't sem like it does anything new or interesting with the fact that it's VR, it seems like a bolted on gimmick at best.

Compared to stuff like giant cop, audioshield, spt, job sim,the gallery: star of the starseed etc I just don't see any reason to play what is essentially a bog standard 3rd person action game in VR.

And I fucking love VR, play at least 1-2 hours a day.

edge of nowhere really looks like a prototype of some uncharted knockoff that they bolted VR onto last second.
