I'm still a belieVR, just about. Though everyone agrees that the market right now isn't viable, we're certain of at least one more 'wave' of developments, maybe more. And no-one can be certain that the next wave isn't the one where VR attains critical mass.

I'm not a believer. I've been gaming for a long time, longer than any editor at pcgamesn and as an old-timer I have seen what worked for gamers and what didn't and after a while you get a good sense of what the majority wants and VR isn't one of them, it doesn't have long term mass appeal for a few reasons.

Fallout 76 has microtransactionsFallout 76 has microtransactions
Richard Scott-Jones Avatar

There are microtransactions for cosmetics, but that's it, and the cosmetics can be earned through gameplay too.


It looks like all the new playable content will be free (I've added a small update on this, thanks for the question!)

This sounds like the GW2 business-model. Psyched if so!

That trailer was the best Daft Punk video I've seen in a while. Back to steam, search, added to wish list. Thanks man!

That would be the Thousand Sunny, the Strawhat Pirate's ship from One Piece, not Kon on the side of a building.

Pretty sure that's him at 11 seconds, not as a character, but as a face on... whatever that building is.

Okay, now I really need to play 1 & 2. Sadly didn't encounter the series until Bioshock Infinite, which is an excellent game.
Richard Scott-Jones Avatar

Oh cool, you're in for a treat! It's been surpassed, but BioShock 1 is still one of the best shooters ever.

Destiny 2 leveling guide: blast through the gear grind and get Raid-ready fastDestiny 2 leveling guide: blast through the gear grind and get Raid-ready fast
Richard Scott-Jones Avatar

That's probably not true; power levels are unlikely to change until the first DLC, which isn't due until December - well after the PC launch. Obviously we'll update this once Raid and Trials gear starts dropping, but that won't affect the earlier stages of progression.


Edit: turns out it hasn't affected any stage of progression, because raid set gear is no stronger than Powerful Gear. You can get to the 305 cap through weekly Milestones alone.

And i saw people with a 305 Handcannon and 296 Powerlvl overall already (on PC)... i have no idea how someone can have so much luck in one week.
