  1. Conker's Bad Fur Day did this a lot, and a few times talked directly to the player-

    Cool! Mine does not like wearing headphones with the VR headset, she says it feels too claustrophobic for her. She is OK with the VR headsets with stand-off earpieces, though.

    Here is my mum in 2017 enjoying her first VR experience, aged 75. She loves big cats and the like so she loved the PS jungle demo. I had access to pretty much all VR kit available then, and the PSVR was leagues ahead in ergonomics and simplicity, if not horsepower or resolution.

    Coming up 52 soon, and been playing games since .. 1979? Had the Grandstand as a first console and I had a bunch of table top games for Christmas -one per year, no wonder we resorted to clocking Munchman! Then had an Amstrad cpc464 which still works, unbelievably, along with the green screen monitor. Shit, I have been testing games for 24 years.

    The Aeron are fucking awesome, it has to be said. Ill have to get my employers to buy me one- I miss those massive, comfortable, cool beasts.
  6. Valheim had a team of four, and Minecraft..! It can still occur, just with the mainstream competition being so in-your-face-fierce (dominating all sectors as EA try to do with ads, streamers etc), it can be even harder to break through. Yeah that's more about Nintendo not recognising the people that had worked on the title though, tbf.

    I haven't got a Switch and somehow missed the hype around this- but I am downloading it now after reading your post and checking out the very first video on Youtube. Thanks! I got a few weeks off work (and in f**king isolation for 10 days) so I need some new games to fill the time between doggo and grandparent duties.
  8. Of all the VR kits I worked with, PSVR was the most surprising. Underpowered (compared to its rivals) and using a bastard mix of old tech not designed for that purpose and clever innovation, it turned out just amazing. The headset ergonomics and comfort were superb, simple and outshone all the others (at the time). The d.. controllers.. were surprisingly accurate especially considering their age and tech, and the triggers helping you know their orientation without looking, important in VR of course. And using that old camera.. Hats off to them, I hope this one lives up to its expectation
  9. Robin put this out- its been 20 years since Bad Fur Day! Bollocks, I am soo freaking old.. https://www.facebook.com/655345683/videos/10157607458410684/
  10. REALLY trying to enjoy this, and had some memorable moments but I hate the AI in the bowl type tracks.
  11. ".. you can see here.. aargh ohhh its gonna go well oh my God.." Looks really good! One to watch for certain especially with their track record.
  12. Teaser for Abe, a new short film, VR experience and game:
  13. Rare self published a few titles but Nintendo were a part of them all, including through the Test process in addition to the cert process. So they were well aware of the Twats, they merely thought them minor enough to ignore completely.
  14. It was a second party game, if we are being picky- they part owned Rare back then.
  15. Conkers Bad Fur Day had quite a few .. memorable.. lines! The cream on the top for me was getting the word "Twat" past Nintendo. Back then, even with an M rating, swearing in a game was unusual but swearing in a Nintendo game? As it happened NOA did not seem to know what that particular word meant (this is back in 2000ish), so although the F word (and some of the B words) were beeped, the UKs snappiest curse word was squeezed in no less than FOUR times As an aside, Microsoft had learnt the word later so when it came to Live And Reloaded, the Twat was gone forever..
