No dismemberment in games available from the Oculus Store anymore..? Seriously?
Now I'm not working on a game that's going to have dismemberment in it but anyone developing a game with any sort of melee combat is going to be screwed.
You say that films with an R rating should be fine but those of us here in the UK have no idea what the equivalent is. I would guess an 18 certificate film would be the equivalent over here and 18 rated films have plenty of dismemberment.
Anyone working on a light saber/sword/[insert other weapon that can chop off heads and limbs here] game is pretty much fucked.
Where's the sense in this? Dismemberment has been a part of video games since the 80s, closing the door to this for the Oculus Store will mean that developers will end up releasing their games on Steam instead of the Oculus Store, which will be bad for all Rift owners given how much of a clusterfuck SteamVR is for Rift owners since the Rift launched more than 2 years ago.
