Oculus Rift anyone? I'm pretty excited that people are giving VR another shotyou mean the ultra-wide screen head-mount display? o.o yeah i can imagine it though gotta be heavy on your head, no choice but to lay down i suppose.
I got to briefly play around with the company one before the writers tore it apart
, and the weight wasn't really an issue for me. Granted, I only played for some 5-10 minutes, so perhaps it'd start to fatigue after longer.
Everyone else was much more excited about it than I was - they said things like "I can never play TF2 without this again", whereas I had a hard time using it as intended. That is, I moved my cursor with my head to keep my reticule in the center; something about my brain rebelled against having them independent. It didn't seem based on FPS experience, because I'm a relatively light gamer and both the people who spend upwards of 30 hours a week in FPSs and those with very little gaming experience caught on to it in a short amount of time.
Edit: The unmodified TF2 UI is unusable, though; you can't read any text, so someone else has to click on the buttons for you. And we all stayed using the heavy because the guy who had played with it some more said faster characters tended to give people headaches and nausea.
