Edit to add... holy cow, there are THREE such people. Three. smh.

It was a good job I wasn't drinking my coffee when I read this. :)

I really did laugh out loud.

I have been captivated by Red Dead Redemption 2. The game is absolutely huge and incredibly detailed.

I have also occasionally loaded up Pavlov VR just to shoot zombies:)

Glad your keeping the podcasts going!

I thought the way that samsai's productivity was affected by the google cloud server crash was very funny.

Thanks Liam and Samsai I really enjoyed the podcast. Reminded me of listening to Graham, Ben, Mike and Andrew from the linux format / voice days.

Looking forward to the next.

The weekend chat - what have you been playing?

It's been mostly Red Dead Redemtion II. My daughter persuaded me to get it, and it has been a massive pleasure to play.
The great pity is that we cannot have a multiplayer game as that is sadly broken on linux.

I have also been logging in for a few Wargames in Interstellar Marines - scary robot time :). There are usually a couple of players around to team up with and a nice bunch they all seem to be.

Hope you get over your cold @scaine, VR is no fun is you have to keep blowing your nose.

I do wish they had posted some daylight footage, just to get a better look at the game.

On the subject of running around in the dark and completely unrelated to this game, I recently had a go at Interstellar Marines and teamed up with a couple of players who clearly knew exactly what they were doing and where they were going in the pitch black. I didn't know the maps as well and ran straight off the edge to my death AND with a third of our team points, now lost and unrecoverable. DOH!

Open source 3D creation suite 'Blender' has a major new release

This is very early days for VR in blender, and I haven't had a lot of success with it but if you start blender through steam. Go to preferences and then add-ons then tick 3D View VR Scene Inspection. You will now have the option to start a VR session. Press 'n' to open the side bar and there will be a vr tab with an option to start a vr session. It's buggy but nice to see some of your creations :)

Getting a community going is a wise move, I certainly hope this works out.

Might be time to upgrade my x200 :)
