I have high hopes for Big Order. I love intellectual anime like Death Note, Code Geass and more recently, Aldnoah Zero, Valvrave the Liberator and Heavy Object.

Big Order seems like it's copying elements from Code Geass (He has a gimpy sister he's trying to save, Daisy is like C2, there's chess references, and his power is basically the Geass when Lelouch gets it in both eyes) and Death Note (His wishes are carried out by a monster that looks like a cross between Rem and Ryuuk). It's also a world like Charlotte where there's lots of people with powers

The twist is that like Guilty Crown (a poor-man's Code Geass), he is a pawn, despite being paraded around as a king.

I figured I'd review my +Oculus . As most of you know, I am better at picking out flaws, so I'll start with them

Windows issues:
-I already listed all the trouble I had with the X1 controller, and how it's drivers wouldn't install despite being first-party Microsoft hardware on a Microsoft operating system, and the manual for the wireless adapter left out details from the other manual. I had to look up the solution on Reddit. Linus Torvalds is somewhere, laughing his ass off.
-Oculus doesn't suspend the power saving settings, meaning when my monitor turned off after 15 minutes of inactivity (even though I was using the rift and the X1 controller), so did the rift
-After that, the rift would disconnect intermittently. Luckily another Reddit thread fixed that (you have to disable power saving settings on the USB root hubs in Device Manager)
-When using SteamVR, windows wouldn't send audio to the rift. I had to find a setting in +Steam to do that, when it should have done it by default.
-After transferring the audio to the rift, it was then muted by windows in the system tray. I didn't notice till I went back on my computer

Rift software:
-It charges you in USD, without notification of the currency, thus overcharging me compared to what Steam charges for ADR1FT
-Games you buy won't run at all without the rift connected (which was really annoying when I didn't have one)
-I'm not sure if Steam achievements carry over when I'm playing the Oculus version...
-Right now my rift isn't even turning on. It probably will once I restart. SteamVR also gave me a pure grey screen till I restarted, a while ago
-It kept telling me to upgrade the firmware a few times, even after I did. It should have only needed it once
-Some games that use the remote, won't detect the X1 controller. Really annoying
-SteamVR's tracking is less reliable than Rift's software, and the screen blinks out occasionally as a result

Rift hardware:
-I had problems getting the remote to turn on at first
-The remote's battery is really hard to get out
-It is very uncomfortable. To the point where my wife recently pointed at my face, started laughing, and said I have goggle-face. It also makes my face itchy, and I'm not always able to reach the spot
-You can tell that it's a pentile display cause of the arrangement (A group of 2 RB subpixels share 1 G subpixel, as opposed to PSVR RGB which 1 pixel has each an R, G and B) I'm not sure how it affects visual quality yet, but I've seen pictures of Samsung phones that show it's a big downgrade
-Despite it's huge resolution, since it's so close to your face it looks closer to 3DS's screen than Vita's, in that everything is so pixelized. This can be overcome with more powerful video cards however, by using superscaling and anti-aliasing
-There are "god-rays", these only show on bright objects on top of dark backgrounds, where it looks like lines of light that start at the object, end at the edge of the screen, and connect to the middle of the screen. This really only matters during load screens though (sort of like how a dark pattern is visible on Vita's OLED, but only on extremely dark scenes, like load screens, where you wouldn't care)
-It arrived exactly one month late

Pluses:
-Games install in the background, more like PS4 than Steam
-Some games do mirror to the monitor like PSVR will, undistorted. But rarely full screen. Usually a portrait window
-The cable is a lot less obtrusive than I originally suspected. The existence of it at all negates "room-scale", and I imagine the Vive one is just as problematic. So that buzz word needs to die, before someone trips and kills their headset.
-It has a universal menu, like PlayStation/XBOX do, by pressing the home button
-Having built-in headphones is really convenient, that I'm going to miss when I get PSVR
-The screendoor-effect (how visible the lines between pixels) is a lot less pronounced than my DK1. It's pretty much not noticeable while you're playing.
-It runs surprisingly well considering my PC is roughly half as powerful as the recommendations
-The box is really nice, better than the DK1's plastic briefcase. The handle is really strong and might actually support it's weight (unlike the flimsy plastic handle of the Steel Battalion box which didn't make it out of the mall's parking lot before snapping)
-It's theater-mode video player did detect some of the videos I have on my PC, it only played one though. The photo software however wants me to put images in a specific folder :/

You're welcome +Bryan Ivy 

+Insane in the Membrane every VR headset before this is a joke in comparison. You're practically comparing them to the virtual boy as if it's indicative of VR for all time. Trust me, there's vast quantifiable differences, to the point where I'd say Rift/Vive are the first viable headsets. I agree there is a long way to go (resolution specifically needs to double) but I'd give them a shot

I am loving Boku no Hero Academia
I've already cried a few times, but episode 4 had me bawling my eyes out so much that I'm actually feeling emotionally drained. This series was practically built for me. 

A kid with a Superman complex is in a world where powers are so common that normies (quirk-less) are the rarity. And he is one of the normies. But still manages to be heroic in front of his mentor, All-Might (the show's equivalent of Superman, except he has more weaknesses) by attempting to save his own bully from a villain so powerful that other heroes stood by twiddling their thumbs. All-Might was in his weakened state, and became so encouraged by the kid's heroism that he regained his powers long enough to stop the villain. That was the first tearjerker moment.

All-Might decided to take him under his wing as a replacement (All-Might was weakened in a fight, and they've kept it a secret that his powers were failing him) and actually give the kid his powers (by injecting one of AM's hairs) because he was so inspired by that moment of bravery, that he changed his mind about how he thought quirk-less people couldn't be heroes

The big one, was at hero school, where the class was put in a combat test. They had to destroy robots worth X points, and there was one big one worth nothing. The kid, still with 0 points with little time remaining, noticed that a girl was trapped under some rubble and was about to be crushed by the robot, gave up his remaining time to save her using his new powers. Then the girl wanted to sacrifice some of her points so he wouldn't fail. But luckily it was the school's kobayashi maru test, and they wanted people to rise to the occasion to do something they didn't have to do (destroy the zero point robot to save someone) cause that's what being a hero is all about. 

It was beautiful.

The irony of that recycle logo cut into the plastic to save on materials, and using 2 cases for 2 discs instead of 1 case and an insert that fits into those tabs in the spine.

Or putting all the stuff on one disc, cause I'm sure they didn't fill 50 GB

Their approach to forcing the motion controls really killed some aspects of this game.

Open sourcing science
Torvalds would be pleased
Possibly +Tom Nardi​
The physicists say releasing the data shows "good stewardship" of the funding they've received.

Well most of that data probably isn't something immediately Nobel Prize worthy, the people at CERN would want the credit for something like that for themselves, but I am sure that other research institutions and individual scientists will be happy to get access to it.
And it is a publicly funded project, so the data it generates should be publicly available.

Got to use the X1 controller for a while.

I still hate the typeface of the face buttons. The extra large font size makes it seem like a child's toy.
The analog sticks are better than PS4's, they are slightly concave and have ridges along the edge for easier gripping. Though I prefer how PS4:s click in that they have more travel
PS4's dpad and bumpers are superior. They are membrane (if you open a SNES controller up you'll see pieces of rubber on the buttons, that give the perfect amount of travel and click) whereas X1's are microswitch buttons (like the GBA SP or original DS) despite this, the dpad is vastly superior to 360's
The triggers have nice travel, and of course, absolutely no click. The travel is perfectly smooth which makes it feel like it really needs a click.
I have no opportunity to use the impulse triggers however
The face and system buttons are membrane buttons, both are better than PS4's. PS4's system (start/select) are microswitches and are a bit difficult to press in their position.
PS4's OS button (PS) is superior because it sticks out. X1's (home) is flat and a bit harder to press (the reverse of the system buttons) but lights up. Only 1 LED unlike 360s ring of lights though

I couldn't get it to sync with the wireless adapter cause the instructions for it were wrong. It said to just press the controller's sync button. Later when I read the controller's manual, it said it needed to be held for 3 seconds. The drivers also refused to install. I had to read a Reddit thread on how to get them to work. The PS4 controller however needs no drivers.

It's the second version of the controller, which means it has a standard headset port.

Using double As seems downright archaic. I'll have to obtain a battery pack for it.

Space dust is a real problem when it impacts external equipment, IIRC there was a theory that it turned to plasma on impact, allegedly it was a major problem for solar panels in space.
At the velocities at which things travel in orbit even grains of dust could pose a danger.
