It's a really fun toy. There are a bunch of good games for it now and even though I don't use it super often I'm glad I have it for when I want to play something completely different. Can be a good refresher that way.
Can't speak to how glasses friendly it is but I can see it being a problem. You do need a decent sized play area too. Tracking with PSVR has mostly been solid for me as long as you set it up well. The only time it's a problem is when some games have you teleporting around and turning and you can end up facing away from the camera without realising, which fucks with the tracking.
also this whole sitting in one spot for the better part of the last 10 years thing has really wrecked me downloaded a C25k app and couldn't even make it halfway thru week 1 day 1 by the time i got home my legs were numb from the knees down and i was ready to vomit lmao
You really just have to keep at it. I didn't use an app when I started but I planned out a distance and just made sure I was always moving, like slowing to a fast walk instead of stopping if I needed a break. I'd focus on stamina over speed.
I need to get back to running more. Still do 5K a few times a week but I was regularly doing 15 miles without stopping. Wanted to move up to marathon distance.
I like that her detective mode equivalent is an actual thing that makes sense in the world.

Really? It reminded me of Mass Effect in that almost everybody looked stiff or wooden.
I think their faces are quite expressive. It still does the shot/reverse-shot that every RPG does, which can make things feel a bit stiff, but the voice acting and facial capture seems to be good enough to compensate.
Started playing Horizon Zero Dawn. It's very good and I didn't expect to care about the world or characters as much as I am. It's rare for me to not skip through dialogue as soon as I've read it but all the performances so far are great. Already bought the DLC on sale.
After playing as much AC lately, not being able to climb everything is taking some getting used to.
A lot of my early gaming experiences were on my brother's Game Gear. For a 5 year old it's basically like holding a medicine ball with your arms outstretched because that's the only position in which you can make out anything on the screen.
Disappointed by the Avengers reveal and fairly worried about sentences like "the game will take players on an epic journey delivered over multiple years" and "definitely not pay to win". I'm not convinced it will be a complete fuck up or anything but I'm not really excited about it anymore.
Also annoyed by Ubisoft continuing to recognise Sam Fisher with appearances in other games and recognising the love for the series but not actually doing anything with it. Like I can take Prince of Persia being a dead series because that character isn't popping up everywhere but still having no word on an actual Splinter Cell game kinda sucks.
On the more positive side, I'm really interested to see what Ghostwire Tokyo, Deathloop and Elden Ring all are.
I used to post in here a good bit. Haven't in a long time because I struggle to commit to watching a film. Well this morning I decided to throw something on in the background this morning and for some fucking reason I choose Transformers: The Last Knight.
I'm a prick, I know. It was about as bad as I expected. I feel like Michael Bay has got more competent at directing action while getting worse at directing humans. One of the most chaotic and hard to follow scenes is legit just two people at a table talking. It feels like two people having four simultaneous conversations. If there was a hint of self awareness Michael Bay would be hailed as an artist.
I couldn't watch with sound but new Star Wars game looks okay but potentially quite dull. Holding out hope because I'm choking for a decent single player Star Wars game and because I have some faith in Respawn after the Titanfall 2 campaign. Will see.
Yeah, Detroit is actually good. It still has it's Cage-isms and you can pretty much tell exactly where it's gonna go if you've ever seen a film or a civil rights movement before. Doesn't mean it isn't fun and the variation is very ambitious. I'm looking forward to going back and getting the plat at some point just to see all the possibilities.
Ice cream is my downfall when it comes to trying vegan. It's my go to treat. There are some really good vegan ice creams and sorbets but the options aren't as good and it's also like double the price for the good ones. Vegan cheese is super variable. The only stuff I've had that's basically indistinguishable is from restaurants. A lot of the stuff in supermarkets can have a weird texture or it doesn't melt right or they overcompensated with cheese flavouring.
I imagine it can be difficult going vegetarian in a living situation like that but even eating less meat is pretty great.
apparently the walmart neighborhood market i always go to has the "beyond meat" patties, and i've been wanting to try them for a while since i stopped eating beef & pork & whatnot (the only meat i still eat is chicken)
I think they just started doing them some places here but it's over £5 for two burgers which is obscene.
I was in your position for a good while but I've been full veggie for a few months now. The chicken alternatives are quite cheap and spot on for processed things like chicken burgers or nuggets when you feel like eating a good trashy beige meal. For other stuff, like curries or stir frys, I tend to just bulk up on vegetables. Sweet potatoes and aubergines have been the fucking MVPs of my kitchen.
As far as I can tell it's still Crytek but Deep Silver bought them and changed the name during development. It's a Ubisoft in how it feels.

the first Homefront was trash
i swear i beat the whole thing in two hours
thankfully new Wolfenstein has America under occupation done well
I need to play The New Colossus. Was really excited for it. Bought it on release and bounced right off it not long after that sick ass wheelchair opening. I might need to bump down the difficulty honestly, jumped right into the highest like I did with The New Order but I was getting insta-fucked so much.
Damn, why everybody in this thread got a coloured name?
I've been playing Homefront: The Revolution, which is a pretty decent Ubisoft actually, especially for the £4 I paid for it. They call the North Korean invaders "Norks" though and it sounds racist enough to make me feel uncomfortable. Like they say it so hatefully too, in phrases such as "Kill those fucking Norks".
I had a dream last night about a game that played like MGS5 but there was also the threat of Silent Hill esque shit that would eventually come and "infect" the location if you took too long to do the mission. So you could either be quick or you could use the horror as a distraction. Seemed neat.
I've been playing Sundered and it's pretty great. Wish it had some more combat variation and that the level layouts didn't have that semi-randomisation so more intricate platforming could be a thing. It has a really nice feel to it though and hand drawn animation in a game is just lovely.
