zFRAG by LostTrainDude

quote [ Defrag your mind by manually defragging a virtual Hard Disk, sector by sector, or enable the AUTODEFRAG to sit back and watch it do it on its own ]

A little defrag never hurt anyone.

Half-Life: Alyx Gameplay Videos

quote [ Return to City 17 on March 23, 2020. Set between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2, Half-Life: Alyx is a new full-length game built from the ground up ... ]

3 more of them in the extended. Looks pretty sweet... demonstrating teleportation mechanics and smooth locomotion. My 1050ti doesn't meet the min spec, but I'll probably try it anyway eventually.

If Logged Into Facebook, Oculus VR Data Will Now Be Used For Ads

quote [ Facebook is changing policies and ?will now use information about your Oculus help provide...more relevant content, including ads.? ]

Facebook openly collecting VR data now. Feels like only yesterday when Facebook bought Oculus and people were telling me this wasn't going to be an issue. Oh fucking boy.

Boneworks from Stress Level Zer0 has officially launched. What many consider to be the spiritual predecessor to Half Life:Alyx. Also, they're the company behind Duck Season which is one of the creepiest VR games I've ever played.

Also Budget Cuts 2 Launched today. Another fun series.

Microsoft 'DreamWalker' Experiment Takes First Steps into Always-on World-scale VR

quote [ Microsoft unveiled an experiment this week that explores the future of always-on virtual reality. Building a system called DreamWalker, Microsoft researchers walk around in the physical world while still being fully immersed in VR, essentially taking the first steps into replacing your morning walk with something that?s not only reactive to your physical surroundings, but ultimately more interesting. ]

Gearbox finally released Borderlands 2 VR for PC and it is a shit storm. $49.99, buggy as hell, no multiplayer, and ported by someone who must not have played a VR game in the past 2 years.

Also, I need to do another nsfw VR post one of these days. Lots of new stuff out there...

Move over regular shorts, exoshorts are the hip, new way to reduce the metabolic rate of walking and running

quote [ A pair of fitted shorts may not look much like the high-tech robotic exoskeletons of Hollywood films. But this seemingly simple device, which tugs on the wearer?s legs with each step, probably represents the first exosuit capable of significantly assisting humans in both walking and running. ]

They went from exoleg-warmers in 2017 to exoshorts. Expect exospeedos next.
