      Recently I got my hands on the HTC Vive. Its expensive easy to break from what I've read, and its totally worth every dollar. The set up was actually pretty simple. The Lighthouses (The infrared sensors that track the headset and the controllers) have to be at a pretty decent height. The software side of the set up is simple and easy to follow. After I was finally set up I bought a few of the more popular games available at the moment and went through one by one; Audioshield, Job Simulator, The Lab, Pool Nation VR, Tilt Brush, and Waltz of the Wizard. Audioshield, Tiltbrush, and Pool Nation VR are the ones that really stood out to me.


      Audioshield is made by the same Guys who made AudioSurf. It generates balls to hit using the song you select so every new song is a new game. A nice touch is that it doesn't just use music you have on your computer but is actually able to pull off music from the internet. I believe its connected to spotify, but I don't know for sure. After a single round of a really good high tempo techno song that was featured on the song of the day I actually worked up a decent sweat. It has near endless replay-ability and works as good exercise if you play a lot of it.


      The next game I played was Tilt Brush. Tilt Brush is a pretty fun way to get a feel for the headset. You quickly get used to walking around the play area and looking at your drawings from any angle. The graphics make you forget you are in VR and time just flies by. Yesterday I had a good friend of mine(who is working on her art career) try it. She spent some time making a dress, drawing a faerie, and just playing around. While she was disappointed in the precision on some of the brushes she really enjoyed the time in VR. Personally I drew a really crappy shenron from DBZ, but I was proud of my work regardless.


      Finally I want to talk about Pool Nation VR. Pool Nation VR is one of the most surreal experiences you can have right now. If not for a series of issues getting the game to start I would be playing it instead of writing this right now. Pool Nation VR is as it says a Billiards game. It takes place in a rather rad bar with a bunch of NPCs just hanging around. The part that makes the game so great isn't the pool (or even Darts) is the multiplayer. When I played my first game I saw the bar load and there in front of me was another person. We both immediately threw our hands up and waved at one another. At First its a little strange because all you can see is their controllers and headset waving around in real time. Ever time I missed a shot I'd throw up my hands and hang my head, the other guy join me. When he was lining up a shot, I'd pass the time working on juggling chairs or finding things to hold in front of his face. I lost pretty bad, but me and the guy hugged it out and I went on my way. The problem as I previously stated is the bugs with the game. about 5 in 6 times I try to start it up the game stops tracking the headset. (Side note: a lot of the game different VR games don't start up unless you open them a specific way. Like through the Vive app for some and your steam library for others.) The view is locked and you have to close the program and try again. I don't know if its just me who has been having these problems, but I troubleshoot it and get it working eventually.


      In summary VR is awesome. It really is the next step for gaming. While the cost is really high at the moment for the Vive and I won't recommend buying one at the moment, If you get the chance to use one DO IT. You won't regret it.

      Me and my friend have been planning a trip to Boston for Pax east for a while now. Both of us are minors and have came to a dilemma. We aren't able to get a hotel room if we aren't 18. We don't know what to do, this may be the last year we are able to go. Any Ideas?

      So I have noticed that the website is moving towards that facebook kind of layout and I'll be honest I think its much better, but does anyone think that we might get some real interesting features soon? ex:live chat, flash games (maybe some multiplayer stuff), ect.

      post what you would like to see and your opinions on where the site is going.

      Alright so the story is my step dad is a little paranoid when it comes to health problems and some asshole sent him a study saying wifi signals are decently bad for your health. I need a way to convince him other wise and find a alternative to connecting to the internet else where in my house without the wifi modem. I was considering just getting a good size ethernet cord run through the house.

      If you can come up with a answer for either one I would appreciate it.

        I don't keep the site open very often, let alone the time that it actually has me signed in it doesn't add up to much time
