    GTA V didn't launch with a PC version and they flipped their fucking shit about it

    Rockstar waited over a year to launch a version that runs 4K 60fps on the PC, did it properly and nobody complained about the quality of the release

    instead of releasing a jank-ass port just to align with the console launches

    WB makes fuckin' sure that the PC launch for Arkham Knight corresponds with the console launch

    and it's a fuckin trainwreck

    If you poll your average person they will say Batman & Robin was the worst batman movie.
    If you poll your average gay they will say Batman & Robin was pretty good.

    The whole thing was high camp and hilarious.

    Today I won a copy of Batman: Arkham Knight from the generous angels at DESTRUCTOID and DLCompare.com because I left a comment saying I thought Chris O'Donnell's Robin was "kinda hot."

    I still don't understand why hololens is preferable to actual VR. I can see it for board games, but since its on xbone, how much of that can we really expect? I feel like everything it will be usable for, while neat, will just be something that could have been done more immersively in VR. I REALLY want to play a strategy game or city building game in a similiar perspective to that mine craft demo. That seems like an amazing experience. I just think I'd rather have that perspective in VR, instead of being limited by my physical space.

    Morpheus is limited by the PS4.

    Hololens is a PC-focused product that is getting XBO support, and they are thinking WAY beyond games for it.

    edit: they are two completely different products doing two completely different things. It will not be an AR vs. VR war. It will be a VR war between oculus and Valve and Sony, and then AR off doing its own thing really well.

    I guess I just don't really see what AR will do. All I know is the mine craft demo. It looked awesome. Genuinely jaw dropping. But it also left me wondering why you would want the game limited to a table when you could just have it take up the whole field of view with VR.

    Wheras I will end up with a Rift because John Carmack / Palmer Luckey are two of the brightest minds in the industry and there wouldn't even be a VR headset war were it not for Luckey.

    I will probably get a hololens also, depending on what the final field of view is.

    I'm very sympathetic to the former. I also like to be able to talk to my wife while I play games. But strapping a big headset on feels inherently more isolating to me than sitting on the couch playing a game, regardless of whether you are totally immersed or not. The headset itself seems like a barrier to communication. I imagine my wife asking me to take it off if she wants to talk about something.

    Part of that isolation is of course that when you wear a headset (AR or VR) you are literally excluding the people with you from seeing what you see.

    The whole thing was high camp and hilarious.

    Uma Thurman and Arnold Schwarzenegger in particular embraced their campy dialogue fully. There are a lot of things I do actually like about the movie. Though obviously it was not for everyone.

    And Chris O'Donnell was and still is hot, and the bat costumes were certainly hot in a very rubber fetishy way.
