  1. Move Over, Twitch Plays Pokémon: The New Hotness Is Virtuix Omni Pokémon

    Where the tall grass is actually tall.

    Fighting with thousands of other onlookers just to get your player character to move in the right direction? Pffft. That's so two months ago. Now we'd rather play Pokémon the way that God and Nature intended: by trotting about on an itty bitty treadmill.

  2. Kickstarter Backers Are Mad at Oculus Over Facebook Deal, But Maybe Everyone Should Just Chill Out

    Too bad the Internet is fueled by pure fan rage.

    Man, people are really upset over the whole Oculus Rift/Facebook deal, and perhaps most understandably, their backers on Kickstarter are feeling the most betrayed. Still, maybe we should all pause for a moment of sanity before making any Vines of throwing a Rift in the garbage.

    BOO THINGS ARE COMING AT YOU

    The growth of the oculus rift is incredibly exciting, but it's totally going to explode your brain when you put it on, because we have a harder time distinguishing between virtual reality and actual reality than we previously thought.

  6. You Can Play The Legend of Zelda From Link’s POV With The Oculus Rift

    Living in an 8-bit world has never been more heroic.

    The Oculus Rift can be used for all sorts of amazing things, like controlling space robots and diffusing bombs.

That's right; you can be Link (just make sure you keep quiet).

  7. You Can Now Rent a Zombie Holodeck for Corporate Events

    There's no team-building exercise quite like a zombie apocalypse.

    The Oculus Rift is great, but it's still not quite in the realm of Holodeck-style virtual reality, because you're locked down to a computer and a controller while playing it.

    Our robot overlords will probably look harshly upon this some day.

    "No, Mom, I will not pause this game for dinner. I'm practicing my skills for NASA." Yes, some day you may be able to use this excuse for playing video games endlessly, but only if you enjoy motion controls. NASA is experimenting with using the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset and Microsoft's new Kinect to control robots in space.
