    I dunno. Seems to me the name of the game when posting online is that you'll be responded to.

    Depends what you mean by anemic. Screen and headset was completely on par with the rest of 1st gen VR, no doubt. Tracking and motion controllers were not as good as PC VR because they used hardware never intended for VR. Still, mostly completely workable and one of the reasons the entry price for PSVR was very kind.

    Sony has about 50% VR marketshare and their game catalogue is solid.

    Not sure why PS5 VR would be a let down. Seeing as it can be designed from the ground with VR in mind, something PS4 never was.

    If I'm going to buy new VR gear it'll have to be something nex gen for sure and if you factor in the price for a PC capable of running it smoothly it's well out of my entertainment budget for now.

    The tracking and motion is where VR lives. I had the Rift before Touch existed and it was a novelty toy and nothing more, that all changed when Touch came out.

    What can I say, motion controllers with analog-sticks/touch or no, it delivers some amazing gaming experiences. :dunno:

    Have you tried games like Moss, Wipe-out Omega, Farpoint and Resident Evil 7 VR?

    For the past couple of weeks, I've been playing Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, Knuckles in Sonic 2, Sonic Adventure DX (modded), Sonic 3D Blast: Director's Cut, Sonic Mania Plus and Sonic Spinball.

    And yet you agreed with Snerk on another thread that you cannot let go of me either. What am I? Tetris?

    I have been playing Dishonored. It has been a lot of fun, although I've been killing everyone due to convenience. Haven't noticed much in terms of consequence in that regard until now. I've reached a mission with (High Chaos) in the name so I'm guessing I'm near or at the end game. I thought the chaos system was intriguing but now I'm not so sure. Up until this point Samuel had essentially been my best bud, even in the preceding cutscene to this mission. Yet when we arrived, suddenly he hates me and I had to kill him.

    So that was kinda lame.

    Still, interesting concept. I'm looking forward to the end. This game did well with its worldbuilding and I actually cared about the characters which is rare.

    I find that too many stealth games end up making it easier to just kill everything. I think I had that issue with at least one of the Deus Ex games and with Styx: Master of Shadows.

    Yes, that's why I started killing. :lol: Some of the non-lethal methods would have required far more effort than just a good old fashioned slaughter so... y'know...

    I think I might replay it after this run and give non-lethal a serious go if the ending is particularly poor because of all the killing.

    I think I've made another mistake.

    Spoiler regrets :

    I cannot tell whether you are beta-testing or not, aimee.
    This is a distinct possibility.

    Is Baldur's Gate worth playing today? Is it comparable to Planescape: Torment?

    I'd say yes to the first. I wouldn't know about the second.

    There's a version where the entire original game is recreated as an official BG2 expansion so that it runs under the newer engine. I'd recommend that route.

    Oh, certainly. BG campaign in BG2. And get them on GOG rather than Steam, or else Tim won't speak to you ever again.

    Which is the one that everybody raves about? And what's wrong with Steam?

    Any game you mod extensively should be brought off Steam wherever possible.
