    well

    are we claiming now that Russia actually gave two shits about the populations they planted in eastern block countries during the soviet union era? they weren't just a flimsy pretext for other strategic and geo-political goals?

    even aside from the crucial black sea navy base in the crimea, by seizing the peninsula they also just took the majority of Ukraines black sea territory

    there's oil in them thar waters

    I think the nationalists do care quite a bit about their fellow Russians, yes

    the oil just provides an impetus for an alliance with oiligarchs

    this is where we have a difference of opinion, i think it's the other way round

    nationalist rhetoric is just a convenient excuse and an easy way to rally public support, i don't think it's the actual motivation behind Russias action

    putin has been purging assorted oligarchs and relying instead on conservatives and nationalists

    public support does matter; russia is not so centralized or so stable that putin can just wholly ignore public dissatisfaction at the degree of kleptocracy

    i don't disagree with you there

    point is though the nationalists are a means to an end

    they're not really a demographic you can fire up for a few handy events and then put back in the toybox until next needed

    I cant wait to see how VR fares.

    I already aired my concerns about it on the PC side so I'm more interested in Sony's efforts.

    Though this should surprise nobody, I am very interested in how Microsoft's VR thing susses out.

    Especially since it would be criminal to not incorporate the kinect into it, which can do realistic face scans for 3d character models, and accurate mapping of where the body is and what you are doing with your arms/hands. The next kinect can even track the fingers, letting you gesture and grip things.

    I am imagining a future game where you hold the controller in your left hand for just the stick and triggers, and you otherwise have both arms free to interact seamlessly with the world you are walking around in via the stick.

    vr is basically an inevitability

    however console vr is going to be peasant tier, as either the fidelity or the fps is going to take a hard kick to the balls to fit onto that hardware

    valve have been pitching figures of 90-95 fps per eye for immersion without some types of motion artefacting, and carmack agrees

    in one sense it is perhaps understandable theyd push the top end as being essential given they are pc-centric, but it is significant that in 5 years or so it will be night on impossible to have the equivalent vr experience on a console. i will be very interested to see what people do with this beyond the obvious first person stuff, because i suspect a lot of what will get put onto the ps4/xbone will be ps3/360 games running at high fps and 1080p for vr. i would love to play bayoneta as a disembodied floating hed

    immersion is not the word i'd use for having someone talk at you without getting any response

    and also ignoring the fact that the player is currently hopping and crouching like some caged, agitated bonobo

    how it so hard to do anything

    like i just struggled doing 1 set of 5 chin ups
    and 1 set of 15 push ups

    i looked at fitocracy
    last workout i logged there was nov 3

    did 6 sets of 5 chin ups with 20 lbs added on
    and did 7 sets of 5 bench presses at 140 lbs

    which probably not very impressive but holy shit that's depressing that my laziness could take away that much and now i have so much work to do to get even back near that point

    no one ever said drawing on nationalist support was completely without drawbacks

    they're just the easiest group to easily please and gain immediate and vocal support from

    so if Dugin once again goes around calling Putin a wimp, like he did for 'losing' Ukraine before the Russian army moved in by surprise, what do you think will happen?

    vr is basically an inevitability

    however console vr is going to be peasant tier, as either the fidelity or the fps is going to take a hard kick to the balls to fit onto that hardware

    valve have been pitching figures of 90-95 fps per eye for immersion without some types of motion artefacting, and carmack agrees

    in one sense it is perhaps understandable theyd push the top end as being essential given they are pc-centric, but it is significant that in 5 years or so it will be night on impossible to have the equivalent vr experience on a console. i will be very interested to see what people do with this beyond the obvious first person stuff, because i suspect a lot of what will get put onto the ps4/xbone will be ps3/360 games running at high fps and 1080p for vr. i would love to play bayoneta as a disembodied floating hed

    eeehhhhh.

    Going by Tycho's post on the front page, a 720p 3dHALF-SBS feed on the original devkit was enough to convince him he was underwater. I think there are lots of people out there who SAY you need the best and shiniest for reasons not connected to getting the job done.

    five years from now everything on the PC will obviously blow away everything on consoles, including how nice a VR game can look. And we will be waltzing into a new console generation around then.

    But as has been said countless times, you cannot make the mistake of looking at what the PS4 and XBO are capable of now, and extrapolate that to what it can do end of generation.
