Sounds like a great use of VR to me! :) 
Minority Media is the studio behind reflective indie game Papo & Yo, so it may surprise you just how far creative director Vander Caballero. is straying from that path for his next game.

Keep on hoping!  It SOUNDS Great, but I'm still waiting.  :) 
We knew Valve would be showing some form of virtual reality something at this year's Game Developers Conference, but a surprise Sunday announcement blew the lid off the device and gave us more than...

A bit late, but this was funny. :) 
Notice anything particularly interesting about this image? When Redditor cdos93 posted it, I didn't see why, but yep, there it is. That's today's date, the starting point in 2012's XCOM: Enemy...

This is great news!  And bad news.  

I've been learning Unity.  :p 
Unreal Engine 4, the latest version of the game engine developed by Epic Games, is now completely free for anyone to use, the company announced today. Epic originally launched Unreal Engine 4 in...

So Play-to-Play payment plan (which is the name I coined and have been trying to get people to use. http://www.giantbomb.com/play-to-play/3015-7481/) format seems to be possibly coming to WoW.  Makes me wonder in WoW's inflated gold market how much a subscription would cost. Even 10,000 Gold seems too low based on how much things cost in WoW.  :( 
Blizzard has been adamant for years that it's not currently considering a switch to a free-to-play format for its popular World of Warcraft. That's still true, but the developer has come up with a...

The future of horror movies?  Maybe... I'm still not watching that stuff and VR and horror? HELL NO!  
I strapped on a VR headset to find out how sound helps fool the brain, and I really wish I hadn't.

So... Purses for men.  

I'm just teasing, I can see value in having shoulder bags/hip bags/etc for anyone if you're carrying a lot of stuff.  I wonder, when did satchels/messenger bags become "just for women?"  When we all had proper pockets for men?  *Shrugs*

I've been teased for so long for VR that I don't care who it is, just let me try one on and that'll be the one I buy.  SHeesh!!
Valve's virtual reality device is called the Vive, and it is being made by HTC. Today in Barcelona, the CEO of HTC revealed that the company is partnering with Valve to develop the headset. HTC says...

I'm REALLY enjoying Australia: The Story of Us for a few reasons.  First off, because I get to learn more about the land I now live in.  It's a whole segment of history that I've never heard before and new info is always fun and interesting to me! :) 

Secondly, seeing how Australians became Australians is just interesting you know.  Like how 1 in 5 Australians today are direct descendants of prisoners and how folks will even celebrate if they were part of the first fleet.  Seeing how the "rejects" of England have managed to tame and live on this crazy continent is very inspiring for me.   While I'm no convict it has felt a bit like I've escaped America to try and build a new life from nothing here in Australia.  It's good to know this place has a history of success in this regard. :)
