Unlucky Luckey: Oculus developers invoke anti-douchebag clause, halt games for VR goggles

Paul Westerman
Unhappy

Shame

I had high hopes for Oculus - started by a bright kid in his garage, joined by some cool people and then successful crowdfunded, I had high hopes for this back in 2012. Now look at it. Ugh.

Re: They forget one small detail...

My brother lives in NZ (we're Brits) and he has one steer at a time on his small plot. He hires a guy who turns up in a Land Rover, drives across the field and shoots the animal when it's looking the other way. He says the same thing, if the animal is stressed it spoils the meat. Then he takes it away and comes back a few days later with joints, mince, burgers, steaks, whatever you want, all ready to go in the freezer. My bro says it's the best meat he's ever tasted.

Well, I pretty much love all of it

You miserable lot, I can happily sit through any of the films or episodes. Surprised there's no love for Voyager, I thought Janeway, the Doc and Tuvok were excellent and there were some great episodes in the classic ST vein. I can't be doing with the new films (despite a very good Spock), I thought the Kahn one was terrible and I haven't bothered with the third one.

Text message replies work already (on Android)

A couple of button presses and I can say a quick response and my phone sends the text - works surprisingly well. Really impressed with my Time Steel and it easily lasts a week between charges.

Stealth service – Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Stop

No problem

I'm a lefty, I just move the keyboard to the right and use WASD while my left hand does the mouse. I can't be bothered with all that reconfiguring. Seems OK, I've completed Bioshock Infinite in 1999 Mode, Spec Ops:The Line in FUBAR mode, etc. But I'm just showing off now :D

When I updated to 10 it retained Start8, which confused me at first. I've uninstalled it as the new Start is great.

Re: Ha

But the minimum requirements aren't ballooning, are they? Win10 requirements are the same as Win7 so they've been the same for nearly 6 years.

Having received my Ice Blue at the weekend, I can tell you, "not at all". It glows faintly in a darkened room. Disappointed, having forked out 15 quid (including post).

It's a movie of a Talking Heads concert. If you were expecting a story or character development (or don't like Talking Heads) you went to the wrong place.
