@leraa: @yourbrain: Thank you for asking and answering this! I've often thought, did they get rod of UPF?
I rarely frequent the site but watch videos using the app every night. I really started to miss the premium content, and thought maybe my membership lapsed or something, so thank you both! I'll relink again too.
@bradbrains: I bought Skyrim on PC 3 years ago but only did the opening scene and some of the tutorial dungeon before putting it down and not going back. (Maybe I was playing something else at the time)
Since my roommate won the Skyrim VR bundle I decided to give it another go. It's safe to say I'm glad I'm not only having my first good VR experience, but with a good game too. It may be harder to do extended play sessions beyond a couple hours at a time, and while graphics are muddied and not as great as you'd expect, the immersive feeling is worth the hit and the wait if you know what you're getting into through the likes of previous Bethesda games.
I like it. I also agree with a lot of what has already been said. Controls take some getting used to, but feel pretty natural over time. I do all manual controls so no clicking / teleporting for me.
Graphics/fidelity are a bit ragged, but to be expected. The feeling of 360 3D environments is immersive and nice. My first 'wow' moment was being able to look under the water and see Salmon swimming. The water effect is very satisfying.
Combat feels good but could use a bit more weight. Unfortunately that's not going to be easy without throwing off the 1:1 feeling.
Overall I'm really impressed by the experience and it makes me want go get back in there. This is a game that has me excited for the future of VR, for sure.
I'm looking to choose a streaming service, however have no idea which one to purchase or look into. Recently Sony had PS Vue 14 day trial vouchers after any 1 purchase was made from a "Sale of the Dead" sale, that just ended yesterday and I forgot it was going on.
I really don't want to have the 5 day trial as I might not get much time between now and Monday to watch, but wouldn't mind checking it out and seeing if it's worth it.
Does anyone have a spare code they're not planning to use, that I could have?
Got into playing the game "Everything" last night and forgot it would be available to play, already pre-downloaded.
So I started my venture with it until about 4am. I'm liking the vibe and clips by Alan Watts. If you like to ponder the unknown and get sucked into a stylized world, and uncover things it's really fun. There's not a lot of game here though, so keep expectations in check.
For what it's worth though, it's been both mesmerizing and whimsical.
To those with a Roku box: You can use the code HMQ2MJ to access the "beta" version of the application that is waiting on Roku approval. I tried it on my Roku and it works great. It's a work around until the app gets officially published and approved.
You can add it by going to my.roku.com, logging into your account, and going to the "Add private or beta channel" section. It will add a second GIant Bomb channel to your Roku, and you will need to authorize it is you are a premium member.
