Is it safe to assume that the most catastrophic uses for the Occulus Rift, at least from the point of view of unsuspecting sofas, also make it perfect? Did you see what I did there? I'll wait here while you catch on; just don't go catatonic on me.
The idea of going into certain virtual worlds sounds appealing, but you have to admit that some would be far cooler than others. Of course that varies for all of us but I bet we could all have fun in Catlateral Damage, if for nothing else but to paw out some aggression. Then we could try out Goat Simulator, to simultaneously hilarious and mortifying results. I mean, could you imagine getting tossed around like a ragdoll, looking down at you twisted body fly in several different directions at once? SCARY VERTIGO INDUCING FUN!
The agonizing wait for WildStar is coming to an end tonight and Pie and I are SO stoked to play OMG YOU GUIZ. There is always the hope that a new MMO will come along that will be the next big thing because there is always that desire to relive some of that wonder and excitement that I hope many of you have experienced. Being a part of a launch of a successful game is always exciting; to be abuzz with the rest of the community in sharing in the excitement of many hopeful adventures to come. Although EverQuest Next also looks rather enticing too, we hope to find ourselves attached to WildStar for quite awhile.
Hype. Hype. HYPE!! Also, check out this amazing video from Martyn of the Yogscast crew! I've always loved...well...AMVs, but I guess this is a GMV? Either way, fan made music videos. It's so great to see so much love being poured into a game that hasn't even launched yet.
As late-comers to World of Warcraft, Pie and I would lament about how cool it would have been to see the game progress through the height of what many players consider to be the best eras in WoW. To see Molten Core and AQ40 and to witness the Burning Crusade expansion and Wrath expansions as they were live and cutting edge would have been really interesting. Going back to the content now just isn't the same since you aren't experiencing it fresh alongside millions of other players. When Pie and I finally got to WoW in late Wrath, everything that was awe inspiring was already old hat to virtually everyone.
I suppose we always would like to experience being on the bleeding edge of a big MMO that we are completely engaged in. It would be neat to try our hand at raids and to experience some large scale group coordination that we've been lacking since our good ol' War of Emperium days in Ragnarok Online.
