  1. Didn’t watch the whole thing but that was sounding nice. Those glasses are +5 magic at least. Anyone notice the game Downfall in the background?
  2. Since Fire and Blood, or at least the earlier chapters, reads like a text book I can only assume the writers will have a lot of freedom as far as dialogue is concerned. There’s a lot of cynicism in the air from fans who got their feelings hurt by the final season(s) of GOT but I think this show has potential. HBO pulling the plug on the other show that was in the works starring Naomi Campbell was likely a good sign in terms of their standards not being met. Color me cautiously optimistic.
  3. Didn’t know this was a thing. I feel like “squidge in the fridge” is definitely about a foul RDJ party prank now. Richard shit in a fridge confirmed.
  4. More shocking to hear this dude swam out into the ocean to take a shit than the fact that he almost got taken out by a current.
  5. Summer Witch is ill. Keep feeling like it’s gonna break into an 11 minute Pink Floyd jam. Loving the more natural sounding drums the Music Packs contain. Pots and pans, tribal shaman drums, whatever is being used in spots, I like it.
  6. This completely flew under my radar. Listening to Tecmaster right now. Holy shit it’s good! Love the artwork as well of course.
  7. The Collapse EP is among his strongest releases on my book. I’m sure I‘ll get roasted for saying this but as far as EPs are concerned I would put it over CTD and WindowLicker. The video Weirdcore made is also fucking with the legendary Cunningham videos as well, though I would still say WindowLicker is his best.
  8. Yeah, that’s a good point. A lot of games do require some floor space, or at least would be better with it. I don’t think the game here would really require it though. Many games you can use the joystick or teleportation. Other games, however, it’s a necessity. Thrill of the Fight for example, you actually want to be running around while boxing. Open spaces to game in can definitely be a 1st world privilege (probably still a challenge for those in 1st world coastal cities). I guess I’m fortunate in that I have some floor space where I live. Also, if you have a garage and can park outside for a while that’s another option for select people. Many games don’t require room scale but you’re right. That’s definitely a barrier depending on which experiences you want to have. edit: regarding tracking you don’t really need space for an oculus quest. Just lighting. Thankfully the tracking towers are becoming a thing of the past now. The headset does a phenomenal job tracking the controllers via IR sensors.
  9. High end PC VR for sure. Stand-alone however, is very modestly priced and has several advantages. The Oculus Quest 2 can even run the best games out on PC VR via the virtual desktop app if you have a high end PC and if not you can even rent one (not physically, you just pay like $15 month and can play half life Alyx off of a remote connection from a PC in California or some shit). The quest 2 goes for $300, and the overwhelming majority of the games and apps purchased are $10 - $30. Hopefully I don’t come across as argumentative in tone here, I’m not trying to be at all, but I would say that currently at least ONE very impressive option is very accessible. The issue there, however, is FaceBook’s involvement and apparent future requirements so I fully understand people not wanting to touch it for that reason. I really hope we see more stand-alone headsets from competitors in the near future but damn, the Quest is some revolutionary hardware in my book.
  10. Amazed by how many people haven’t embraced, or even tried, VR yet. It’s at the frontier of more than just gaming. Outside of gaming the visual arts (short films, painting/sculpting) and education are being explored so it’s nice to hear there are some music making applications as well now.
  11. That is one ultra-talented ledge jockey. Damn.
