Sorry for the delay on this week’s podcast everyone, it was necessary to send in an elite squad to pull Tim out of the Oculus Rift matrix.

Yes, Tim has been VR-ing it up for the last 24 hours (maybe all of them,) so he’s ready, willing and able to push through the pain of his atrophying limbs and give us some impressions of the device. I don’t mean he’s going to pretend to be an Oculus Rift, I mean he’s going to tell us about what it’s like to use one. In case that wasn’t clear.

Before that, the podcast team goes over the highlights from BlizzCon, asks whether Valve’s rubbish handling of Diretide will make any difference whatsoever to the DOTA 2 community, explore word that EA pushed DICE to get Battlefield 4 out early and consider whether Monolith have gone “full Molyneux” with their ideas for unique, named enemies in the newly-announced Shadow of Mordor.

After that, Peter rambles on about BioShock Infinite’s first chapter of Burial at Sea and the chaotic zombie survival in State of Decay.

      I was going to say “no”, but… well, with a couple of webcams mounted on the Rift, a laptop in a backpack, and some specialised software, you could probably use it for Augmented Reality. Which would be creepy as all hell. If someone isn’t already doing this, I’d be surprised.

      Give it a few more years and you might well wind up with a wireless Rift with a front-mounted camera for exactly this sort of thing. Once the basic VR stuff is nailed down, I suspect SOMEONE will start moving in this direction.

        great good to know, soon I will be able to run around my flat screaming like a little girl, instead of sat at my desk quivering, while playing deadspace 10

    Still hasn’t shown up on the podcast RSS feed. It’s been taking a while for each episode of the past few weeks (since the recent site changes?), but this seems like even longer.

    If it’s fixable without enormous effort, that would be appreciated.
