Boo!

There's not enough text!

Boo I say!

....

The following now seems hypocritical as I didn't type enough of my own text into this sarcastic complaint. Still that was a great read.

P.S. Thanks

Any minute now, they'll take another Rift off his head, and he'll wonder how deep the rabbit hole goes.

Jeez... When they say that demo would make you feel like your life's passing before your eyes, they weren't fucking kidding... Though, the added Grim Reaper had the right amount of screen time to remind myself that I'm still playing a video game... And for that, I'm only slightly less paranoid after taking off the Oculus Rift...

Other than that, it's too soon to mimic the Oculuc Rift within an Oculus Rift device, so don't worry about all that... Just don't get shot while wearing one, though...

It's only when I read this comic that I realized just how close we're getting to creating the Matrix IRL :o
...Or that I'm in it already, whichever is the case XD

Are we just random AI, circulating slowly in someone's Rift fueled adventure? To provide them with nothing more than flavour text they might see on the page of a newspaper that flies past? What is real!?!

Considering how REAL things are getting on the VR front... I wouldn't be surprised if we ended up in a similar situation.


The age of the waifu draws nearer!

That is running right into the uncanny valley for me, especially how the hair just doesn't move.

Nightmare fuel right here. Let's hope VR never gets quite this real.

1999 predicted it. if you've never seen this movie it's not bad
