  • The Quest does look crazy cool - especially because it is a mobile experience with some really cool tech behind it. The Rift is super cool still though and if you have a computer that can run it well, it is a no-brainer at the current price point (I…
  • I don't know - but you can't really expect the same sharpness out of the screens in the rift as you would a 1080p/1440p/4k monitor. I mean in future VR headsets I am sure it will get there - but right now, it is what it is... it is sharp enough for …
  • I need to use glasses in mine, I am planning on getting some VR lenses at some point. Right now I just use an old pair of specs that fit in the system (my new ones don't fit by a hair). Truth be told - don't put on the headset expecting crisp vide…
  • @cybereality Did you get the North American (purple buttons) variant or the European (colour buttons) one? I had the option for both - I went with the NA for nostalgia reasons, as that was the SNES that I grew up with. I don't know why the NA vers…
  • I still want to get a Switch - not sure when I'll pick on up, but I want to play the new Mario and Zelda games for sure. I haven't owned a Nintendo system since the Wii which I did not care for, but I absolutely still love my Gamecube - lots of gems…
  • Just wanted to say - I did buy this controller about 2 months ago. It is fantastic - I only use this controller now on the PC, the SNES controller is easily my favourite controller design ever - and being able to play new games with it is awesome. M…
  • Love Dark City and 13th Floor. Contact is great too - and I also liked Frequency from around the same time period (97-2000). On the list of films that nobody I know seems to like but I absolutely love are the 3 Richard Kelly films (Donnie Darko, S…
  • Ah that is a bummer - would you have space for a zero gravity lawnchair? I have something like this and use it from time to time when I watch movies - it is easy to store away in the closet too. (Image)
  • Is there a way you can put the head of your bed up against a wall (mine is in the corner of my room).
  • I don't have a Go yet (hoping this Christmas), but I do use Big Screen and have found I can sit comfortably if I use pillows to prop me up some what. I wish I could fix the view so I could lay down a little further - but it definitely is not uncomfo…
  • I go on spurts of reading lots, and then not reading at all for good amounts of time. Obviously Stephen King is my favourite author - and I also love Dean Koontz and Clive Barker who fall somewhere close to King in terms of genre. I also love ad…

 I love The Talisman and Black House - and very much love The Dark Tower series of books. Also love how at the beginning of Tommyknockers, Jim Gardiner wakes up on Arcadia Beach near the amusement park from The Talisman and has a co…

LOL, yep that's the one - there was almost a body horror vibe to the whole movie, maybe not as gross as say The Fly or Naked Lunch, but definitely something very human about the horror (and yep, I laugh every time I see it). I think…

Man it has been decades since I watched Big Trouble in Little China - that movie used to be on all the time when I was growing up!!! As far as Kubrick's the Shining goes - yes King's complaints are valid when looking at it in compar…
  • Zoolander has so many good scenes. (Quote) 
It was a good movie, I only watched it when it came out - it is hard to hate anything Keanu does, except 2nd and 3rd Matrix movies... mind you I haven't watched the Matrix trilogy in like nearly 20…

I'd like to echo this statement - but just say, line up your swing carefully or you might damage your computer monitor.
  • @kojack The Deadpool series is fantastic! My favourite movies in no particular order: BeetlejuiceThe Last WaltzThe ShiningFear and Loathing in Las VegasSouthland TalesThe BoxDonnie DarkoThe Shawshank RedemptionThe Green MileAlienThe ThingInsidious s…
  • Just finished Mr. Mercedes season 1 and am up to date on season 2, it is great - I highly recommend it. I am looking forward to Castle Rock as well - and am about to start season 2 of Ozark which was phenomenal. On the cartoon side - I love the new …
  • @RedRizla Sorry for not getting back to you - my time is so finite at the moment. But it looks like LZoltowski had you covered! Either way - I am a big supporter of both Steam and GOG. Honestly I have to many games on Steam now to consider migrati…
  • The other cool thing about GOG is that every once in a while they do something called GOG Connect that allows games you have in your Steam account to be added to your GOG account giving you a DRM free copy. Personally if I could migrate my whole Ste…
  • I unfortunately have not been able to do much gaming and almost zero VR for the last 4 months since I started my new job - as I am in part heading up the development of a new service center from the ground up and all the fun that comes with that. …
  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UmyzYBeGrE8 There is so much impact with this song in its simplicity. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=caWXt9lCVrc David Lynch is like a gonzo Neil Young.
  • As far as Pink Floyd goes - I feel like they were best when all members worked together - and Nick Mason never gets any credit for being an amazing drummer either but like John Densmore, Chris Frantz and Ringo Starr he has a much greater understandi…
  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhAdzzYSKfY The Blues Brothers were an awesome band - the movie is great too, but I love the two live albums they put out officially.
  • That's cool - you never know, I may try them in the future. But at the moment - I can't see it, lol - good to know about the widmo, I am going with the high index as well due to my prescription but I won't be buying them for a few months yet. Just g…
  • This is pretty interesting - I agree that the plastic looks very cheap, but from the videos I am interested in seeing how the lenses feel. Aesthetics play a huge part in why I buy things - but outside of the cheap plastic, I am not offended by the P…
  • That's awesome - but I still can't stand the thought of contacts (I have trouble with eye drops, lol). How bad was the chromatic aberration on the lenses - I sometimes get it through my regular glasses if the Rift isn't sat exactly right on my head.…
  • As far as 2d games go - I am super interested in EmuVR if it ever comes out, I like the thought of playing the SNES in VR. I also have done what Brixmis did with Virtual Desktop but with VorpX for System Shock 2 - using the immersive screenmode I ha…

exactly - certain genre's just aren't there yet in VR for me. Narrative-based Immersive Sims being the genre I am looking forward to seeing represented in VR the most. Skyrim has shown me that scale can be enjoyable in VR - but I …
  • I totally understand where you are both coming from - but for me I enjoy the art form of gaming. I mean that isn't to say that I haven't been disappointed with the "consolization / casualization" that came with the introduction of the xbox…
