Doom VFR

12 06 17 - 12:23

This looks cool (and I won't be able to run it I'm betting!) Doom VFR is a new VR game based around the last Doom game, but in VR. Looks like Robo Recall but in Doom 2016. Right now the weapons don't look exactly like Doom weapons, and you have teleportation movement (I've tried QuakeVR with normal movement and I get sick) and (I'm assuming based on every VR game I've tried, even Quake VR ports) can dodge incoming fire by moving around. Looks like it might have some slow motion like Robo Recall.

I don't want to pass judgment until I got to play it, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked the last Wolfenstien that I bought Doom for full price, so id seems to be dolling out some good stuff since the Bethesdia acquisition!

QuakeCon BYOC Info

15 03 17 - 11:16

QuakeCon 2017 announced the BYOC registration setup for this year. The quick and dirty (details here) is:

March 30 – BYOC UAC VIP tickets ($400, limit 32)

April 6 – BYOC Quakecon Done Quick ($150, limit 300)

April 13 – BYOC Select a seat ($50, no limit stated).

April 24 – General Admission (free)

As usual the last several years, BYOC costs $ while the general admission to the event is free. If you're in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and think that because you don't have any spare cash so it's not worth going to, the non-BYOC side of the event is amazing. You should still go, it's like a county fair for Quake fans, but free! :) $50 for a BYOC event for a weekend isn't bad either. Right now I just checked and flights for me to Dallas are super-cheap (under $300 round trip, cheaper then the last time I went in 2009!) so hey, if I can come up with several hundred extra buckaroos I might go! :) 

The QuakeCon staff also gave an explanation of what and why things are different this year vs last year, so give that a read. You can read that here.

Scottish Geek your Doom

16 05 16 - 11:38

Youtube channel ScottishGeeks got Doom and is giving it a play through. They've done some other Doom stuff over the years and have some fun play through videos. So, if you're not sure if you should buy this game (I'd say yes, it really is a really good throwback to '93), give it a watch and decide for yourself.
