Editorial – The Team at Oculus are re-inventing the Virtual Reality Headset with their kick starter funded Oculus Rift headset. John Carmack of half life, call of duty and Quake fame and an expert in first person shooters, has joined the Oculus staff to progress a game, I imagine a first person shooter, for the headset. Mind how this develops because the future of games may be in this appointment. Continue reading
Editors Note – this year will be a monumental year for the console industry. The latest generations of Xbox and Playstation, are expected to be released within weeks of each other. Both are vying for our attention and hard-earned cash, unlike the last generation, Sony with the Playstation 4 have put a cheaper deal together in contrast to that xbox one, which surprised everyone at E3 in june. But latest news released by Microsoft proves the xbox one contains kinect and a headset, proving that xbox ones additional cost is actually for additional extras. Continue reading
We’ve all been there, on that hectic train full of earsplitting, drunken individuals either going to, or returning from, some noisy, drunken place. All you would like is a rest and a cup of tea, but all they need is to create a bloody racket.
