    to anyone interested in the best video game experience possible...VR is it...but be warned it will ruin everyother non vr game..it literally takes all the fun out of every 2d non vr game...but if your ok with a small library of games enjoy.. @cucubits your thoughts....I just can't seem to get into games again without vr....half life alyx is simply put too good and once again a half life game 20 years ahead of its time

    had to post a new post because I have no idea how to edit and insert a quote in the edit



    @Kevin 120fps in a fps or racing game makes a huge difference but it's like saying aoe3 looks better at 300fps vs 100fps some games simply do not profit from higher framerates and 3rd person is one such genre...they move slow as molases and I bet if a scientific study was done 0 percent of people would notice 60fps vs 300fps in a 3rd person game....why do i say this its because I can get 140 fps in gta v and usually lock framerate at 60 and notice 0 difference..some people might be able to tell if they are swinging the camera around wildly like a adhd mental patient but for all intents and purposes there is 0 difference when the animations update at 30fps or 30 hz.. my main point is alot of them are locked in at 30-60fps for animations

    I felt exactly the same way after I finished Alyx. Can't remember how long it took me to get over this, I do know I took a couple weeks break from playing altogether. Honestly, now I can't remember which "2D" game got me going again but it does get better. It will be quite some time until more VR games like Alyx come out.

    Now with Death Stranding, Horizon Zero Dawn around the corner, Cyberpunk coming out soon-ish, there are alternatives to keep us busy.

    Speaking of Cyberpunk, I've been following a sort-of VR game/experience: Low-Fi. Check it out if you haven't already. Saw a sort of review on Tested and it's a very cool project so far.

    I haven't played it yet, I keep sitting on my hands and staying out of VR, in the hopes that at some point I get a better headset (not even waiting for the Index anymore).

    the quest 2 is coming out soon and that will easily be the best headset of 2020...120hz 100 percent gamut wireless and standalone....forget the index as the quest two will have full hand tracking.

    and yeah I have to stay far clear from vr experiences like alyx as its ruining 2d gaming

    Besides the numerous Half-Life references, looks like Kojima is a fan of Horizon Zero Dawn too. Very cool.

    I'd like to post more pics but I'd also like for everyone to experience it on their own pace. Ideally I'd avoid spoilers. This game really is full of eye candy and the atmosphere it creates is nothing like any other game out there.

    One from today, quite the opposite of lush green valleys surrounded by snowy mountains.

    I feel a little that way about Elite Dangerous that I've been finally playing a lot of lately after owning it since the beta. Except there's no story to speak of in that, you have to kind of make your own. But it has tons of eye candy scenic shots if you're a space nut like me. All the screenshots and videos I've seen of Death Stranding look fantastic. I just kind of feel like it's a game that I think the THOUGHT of playing it for me is actually better than actually playing it. It might just be enough for me to look at some media time to time..

    I'll get Death Stranding eventually, probably in sale in 2021. It evokes the quintessential Kojima experience, usually super creative and nuts. This is also reminding me that I bought MGSV: Ground Zeroes in anticipation of playing that and buying Phantom Pain.. neither of which I actually followed through on.. (I did play all the MGS games through MGS4 on various playstations though..)

    Noo, the pics don't do it justice. It really is on another level, which is completely obvious by the first/second mission. I don't want to spoil anything but the first couple hours are full of "wtf" and "no way that's happening" moments.

    I will have to try Elite Dangerous too. This damn comet got me drooling to get into astrophotography. Mindblowing what the current technology can do and what level of detail one can get from even a simple DSLR with a telephoto lens. Long story short, I have my first star tracker on the way. Can't wait to start exploring.


    This is from a couple nights ago. It's nothing like what's on social media but I'm proud of it, considering how much light pollution is around where I live.

    That's an amazing shot! Great job!

    My wife woke up at like 4AM to see it from the roof of our building with binoculars when it was to the north-east. I of course was like "wahhhh blargh" when she tried to wake me up. I wasn't expecting it and don't fully recall the attempt lol.. Tried later on when we had to look west but there's no way with Manhattan to the west to see it. I have a telescope, but it's not nearby it's at the in-laws in PA. I was just looking to buy another one last week hah. Should be a great time! Hope you have a lot of fun times with it.
