Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
PC gaming has always been more expensive. A single video card can cost as much as a console (I have the GTX 970, which I bought when it came out, and it's still over $400 in Canada.)
The way I look at it is: The VR experience is $300. I already have the gaming rig. Lots of people already have the gaming rig. The price will come down. I mean, to play Super Mario 3D World, you're looking at $400. Is a single game worth $400? No, but you don't buy a console for one game, so the price of the console isn't factored into the price of the game.
So I don't factor the price of a PC into the price of an HMD.
Yeah, the device is aimed at people who already have gaming PCs. I'm not going to factor in the price of a PC when buying my Rift because I already have one.
And I really like the Eagle, though it doesn't have much of a punch, so if the Courier is in the Eagle/Viper progression then that's fine too.
It really isn't. Unless I'm in some kind of Twilight Zone. A "courier" is still a messenger here right? I'm not just making that up? That's not some delusion of mine? Somebody who delivers messages and packages, not a fighter that kicks ass and chews bubble gum.
The ship either needs to be re-worked to fulfill it's namesake role (because it can't do that right now. It is only good at fighting) , or it should be renamed to the Imperial Fighter.
