I am so glad to say that I have a new Keyboard! I spent more than I wanted to, but less than I was willing to. $149AUD

Ohh, backlit and gaming, way to go. Is it USB? Did you have to use an adapter to make the connection?

It is wired USB. No adaptor. Everything has been working great since I made the switch.

My old keyboard started opening files without prompt, maximising and minimising folders constantly. It was very odd.

What a depressing week for gaming. The status for Hitman is unknown, Mass Effect might not happen again with DLC unknown, Dragon Age might not happen again. EA moved people from Bioware to make Star Wars and Square-Enix sold IO Interactive and kept the Hitman licence. Classic cases of big companies hurting smaller ones.

That is what EA tends to do though, they did the same with pandemic and Westwood. Really not surprised though given what i've seen and read about the new game.

After the patches the game is great. You have to overlook a few things but I found it to be very enjoyable. Played more than once. Normally I don't care about some of EA's business practices that other people do, but this time it upset me. It's not just hurting the company, or Mass Effect but no one knows if we will ever see another Dragon Age game, or to see my longing for Baldur's Gate III or Jade Empire 2.

I recently asked in Twitter "Can you use a PlayStation VR headset as a TV screen for non VR games?"

And apparently you can! You can also watch Netflix, YouTube VR and even 3D Blu-rays.

Got a quick reply too https://twitter.com/FalconerGame/status/864031707128778752

Because my TV is old and I've been getting overscan this could be a great solution to my problem! On PlayStation anyway.

Wow what a day. I can't say that it went exactly as planned but it was an adventure for sure. After saving up for it it was time to buy the PlayStation VR & a 4TB portable hard drive upgrade. The guy in the games section gave me a piece of paper that would let the checkout get my PSVR from the back. When we left the store the alarm went off but they just waved us through. We walked for a short while and realised that it wasn't very heavy. The girl hadn't put the PSVR in the bag so I walked back and got it.

Next I wanted to check out something in a different store and their alarm went off. When we left it went off again and security ran over. We showed them our bags and found that one of the items that I brought the 4TB portable hard drive didn't have its security tag removed I got out my receipt but they didn't sell that model there so it wasn't necessary.

Looking at the receipt I noticed something that made me very glad that they didn't have that model it wasn't on there. We were pretty exhausted at this time but we doubled back & I explained to the checkout girl that she'd helped me shoplift. After a while we figured out that she thought that the paper that the guy gave me was for the hard drive & that it had been a big mix up.



We'll I've set it up as you can see from my new profile pic and it is wonderful. It does have some problems that I'll discuss later, but here are some highlights. I own Batman VR, Loading Human, a big demo disc and a few apps. The apps include a small concert that I got for free & something called Perfect where you can explore three environments so my mum could try it. Batman is incredible really incredible the PS Move controllers control the arms and hands and the moment that you look in the mirror and see yourself as Batman is incredibly cool.

Also got some other things including Persona 5 that I played for a bit in cinema mode which lets you view a screen in a dark space. I did this because the boarders were cut off., though not as much as some games.

I'll write more about this later and I'm willing to take your questions!

You are like the lone Clan astronaut that's going to the VR moon. Others are coming, just not on this trip. We stand by to make sure you survive, then, when it's safe, we'll be along. 🚀🌝

I'm quite surprised about how you looked at it like that. although I kinda agree. You're the first to get a VR in this group.
I'm also thinking about VR experience, alas my money is always short. always ending up buying actual games than the VR gear. although I see other games to play in VR. Horror mostly I'd like to experience that and test both my heart and my bladder.

and for uh lighter tone of VR I guess it's IdolM@ster Viewing Revolution (VR for short)

If you're going to play horror I suggest wearing an adult diaper. It is supposed to be extremely terrifying!

Nice one, glad you're enjoying the PSVR. I never even knew there was an Arkham VR game, how are you finding that?

It's really cool. You can get around with a grappling hook that you aim with your head and hand (it shares this feature with CoD Jackal Assault which I'll tell you about later). You can use motion controllers as your hands and take you gadgets off your body by looking about your in game self. It's a bit hard to describe. You can also throw batarangs by flicking your wrist in the direction you want.

If you are sitting down while playing you can press a button to turn 180. If you are standing you can just turn around to look behind you. One of your gadgets is a forensic scanner to help you with puzzles you can recreate crime scenes and scan inside bodies.

You also can use your hands to pickup or manipulate things and there is a lot to experiment with. I don't want to say much about this because if you get it I want you to have the same wonder that I'm having.

Graphics are really good and the audio is earphone 3D.

It is a bit short but it is also really cheap.

I'll tell you more after I finish it. Oh and if you don't have motion controllers you can use the regular controller but it isn't the same. Seriously the motion controllers are wonderful in Arkham VR.

Currently downloading every non VR game onto my new hard drive. 600GB so far. That's why I'm not posting much at the moment. Nearly done though.

Net went down for a while tonight. Hopefully this isn't a return to the problems from before. It's a bit late at night for it to be them working on the NBN I think.
