You may have written virtual reality off as a gimmick, but not everyone has, and as part of a developer coding jam, we’re seeing some cool new reasons to take to the virtual world.
We’re almost at the point where virtual reality is a thing, and we’re excited by the prospect. Oculus has been developing its headset for longer than most, and the good news is that it’s almost here.
Video games are getting more realistic, but graphics aren’t going to make them better alone, with faster syncing also a part of the formula.
Sometimes, game music can be incredible, but for those games that haven’t spent as much time on audio as other things, a collaboration between Sony and Spotify will be most welcome.
If you’re a regular reader of GadgetGuy, you know that we like to plant at least one fake story in the April 1st news feed, and while we were happy with our special backpack, it doesn’t come close to a time waster from Google.
Do you own an LG G3? Do you want to try the whole “phone VR” thing that Samsung and Google make happen? You might just get that chance (might being the operative word).
PC gamers that don’t mind sitting at their desks generally have three options when it comes to buying a computer these days: gaming laptop, build your own rig, or buy something built by the experts. In that last category, Alienware is pushing a new breed of rig, and boy, is it interesting.
As far as gaming laptops go, it seems like Alienware and Razer hold the market’s attention, with HP getting in there recently, but Acer is attempting to grab it back, taking one of its Aspire machines and kitting it for games. Does it succeed, or would you be better off sticking with the competition?
We already know virtual reality promises to be big, not just for gaming, but entertainment in general, and possibly some social media, too, but Facebook, Samsung, and Oculus aren’t the only players interested in VR.
The virtual world is here, and you can actually take it with you, as Samsung’s Gear VR finally makes its way to Australia. Is this a future that you can take home today, or should you just let it mature a little longer?
