It's not like you'll be wearing it to a strip club or an MS GDC meet and greet party, so who cares.

Tacos, you have Oculus preordered, right?
Any idea on when you're getting it?

When will my Oculus Rift pre-order ship? | Oculus Help Center

The page is new, but I guess:
"The order status page hasn't been updated yet but I'm guessing it is happening soon™."

Gives me such a DK64 vibe.  :o




I am so ready to jump on the Oculus train.  I am absolutely obsessing about it at this point.  
Urgh someone give me something!  :P

Why didn't you preorder 1/2 tau!

Why didn't you preorder 1/2 tau!
Because at the time, I wasn't prepared to spend 600$.
Wasn't prepared until like 3 days ago.  :P

because the graphics look like an n64 game?

for being made exclusively for OR nothing about that game looks like it needs to be exclusive to vr.

Yes, the graphics, the rhythmic music, the gameplay a little bit.
It probably doesn't.  But I'm okay with that.

Probably the only reason it is exclusive, is because it's an Oculus title.

For a lot of games (like Lucky's Tale) the biggest thing is not going to be this weird new experience only on VR (one that would be awful without VR), but enhancing the types of experiences we already have.  

I think we're going to be seeing a lot of room for both.  
New weird games like Job Simulator and Eagle Flight, that you probably could do without VR.  But way more fun in VR.  Without VR they are just awkward experiences.  Whereas in VR, they can be funny.  You can throw a can of oil at some customer.  Hand them some gross food.  A lot of little things that can be done without VR, but are awkward without it.  
Those experiences that you can't really have without it.


I also think it'll improve traditional games.  Control wise, it feels amazing to be able to look up at something.  It feels amazing to be able to turn around, etc.
Visually, (tacos has talked about this), there's some absolutely stunning experiences.  Getting up close to NPCs sounds crazy.  


I'm very very very very excited for this stuff.
