REVIEWS World of Tanks (PS4) Review
Modern warfare shooters are a dime-a-dozen, so why not jump behind the “wheel” of a ten-ton behemoth and incorporate strategy to decimate the enemy?

In the year 3275, the most exciting thing to do is watch people move boxes around a room. If this truly is the future, please end me now!

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Playing Team Fortress 2 With VR And An Omni Treadmill Looks Strenuous

Supreme tipster commander elmoreoocyte sent this one by wire last night. It's a dude playing Valve's Oculus Rift VR-enabled Team Fortress 2 with an Omni treadmill. The Omni allows him to run around, jump, and blast away at enemies. He obviously doesn't do that well, but enjoying a favorite game this way might keep some gamers healthy.

I'm just saying, Gabe could very easily upgrade from the exercise ball to this. Then he could put on his 3D goggles and walk about a completely virtual HQ, smiling and waving to all the Valve employees. Managing real people from virtual space is probably way cooler.

The Omni description says that players can strafe despite not showing it in this video, jump as they would normally, and crouch by bending over because the restraints are designed to keep you from falling and don't allow for crouching. By my estimation, it seems that all of this would amount to the normal experience produced by motion controls.

This might be fun for a while, but are you really going to play Team Fortress 2 like this for hours on end? The one character I could see this being fun as is Heavy. Imitating him and sauntering around on your raised platform, laughing maniacally as your non-VR competitors fall to Natasha. HEAVY SPEND WAY TOO MUCH ON BULLETS AND VR GEAR!! MUAHAHAHA.
