    ok…I don’t know which of you it was, but we’re not going back inside until someone tells me who ‘dealt it’

  • Ronin commented on the post, HMS Felicia 3 years, 9 months ago

    well. Forlath actually brought it over from the old lands. while I appreciate being asked, I really hold no owndership of it. it belongs to all who contributed.

    I do kind of miss tossing a bit of errant imagination out there once in awhile though.

    ok. a little writing experiment. bear

    lungs schmungs. Id totally try one. a little BBQ sauce, a baked spud with the works? yeah, Im in.

  • Ronin posted a new activity comment 3 years, 10 months ago

    sorry, but cannot honestly say I have. recall, that I am in fact in Southern California, the modern tech home of fruits and nuts, silicone valley of the implants and heathens all.

    the only culture here is in the yogurt….

    I have however been most curious as to the haggis. the only one Ive seen here was frozen and sold at a rather strange…[Read more]

    wow. I don’t have any idea what any of this means…and yet, I laughed.

    Im just odd that way I suppose

  • Ronin posted a new activity comment 4 years ago

    hmm.. the vast majority of these must be platform based ( vs PC) as I’ve not played a single on from that rather extensive list (not to mention Ive not even heard of most)

    I’m starting to think I might be missing out on something (and yet, somehow not)

  • Ronin commented on the post, The QBR RP – Book III 4 years ago

    geez…Id well forgotten a good part of all that. and it wasn’t even that long ago. (2012???? really?)

    ok, maybe it was that long ago.

    no doubt they’re still working on the ‘war machine’.

    goodness knows they’re like that sometimes. just wondering which one bailed for a potty break first.

    I for one always refrain from using any sort of medals or the like in my costuming for these very reasons, as well as a strongly driven home respect for those who have and do serve. law or none, its just not something I would do, and have with as utmost politeness as I can generate, mentioned to some I thought might be unaware of the laws…[Read more]

  • huh

    never did I think Id see
    a walrai launched into a tree
    the arc so true, into the sky
    but begs to ask the question

    why?

  • Ronin posted a new activity comment 4 years, 2 months ago

    there was a simulated beating taken in the Dreadhalls thing. nothing in Sightline though. nothing seemed agro enough to come after you.

  • Ronin posted a new activity comment 4 years, 2 months ago

    /sigh

    well tha tis the vid, but Im sorry for the douchebag radio guy talking through most of it

  • Ronin posted a new activity comment 4 years, 2 months ago

    ah ha! found it. Sightline – The Chair.
    this is the one I did

  • Ronin posted a new activity comment 4 years, 2 months ago

    and yes, I do believe it could easily make someone prone to motion sickness have a reaction. one of the favorite demos is a roller coaster ride. I didn’t get to see it, but from what Ive heard, it has actually caused people to (lose their lunch) from the visual input alone

  • Ronin posted a new activity comment 4 years, 2 months ago

    well, I can understand not being a fan of the ‘make me poo myself’ stuff. you would however, likely love the other I was shown. its called Sightline. it was an earlier version of this:

    the one I did is a little older, but its quite amazing. its not scary, just…mind bending in many ways.

    • when falling, do you like see the ground coming toward you before you splat? yeah, that could be disconcerting.

    insane is a good word for it. since a good bulk of our ‘reality’ is based on a fairly closed set of senses. sight, hearing and tactile…limiting/controlling you in two and erasing the 3rd (no tactile feedback) skews your reality instantly. adding a very well done use of ambient 3D sound to add the almost cliche’ yet still very effective…[Read more]

    I got the opportunity to try out an Oculus Rift system today. to say it was a treat is a massive understatement. I was presented with two pretty basic tech testing programs to experience and to say it was unusual and breathtaking is saying the least that can be said.

    my thanks to Taylor Waddell and associates for such a fun and eye opening…[Read more]

    • Absolutely insane. From our vantage point watching the video, it doesn’t look that intense but obviously it’s something else entirely when you’re wearing the device. You must lose the detachment and distance a monitor screen provides.

      I tried something similar in Orlando last year. Disney has an arcade version where you fly on a magic carpet or…[Read more]

      • “…limiting/controlling you in two and erasing the 3rd (no tactile feedback) skews your reality instantly.” Well put . . .

    • So it’s kinda like having a monitor strapped to your face that can sense your movements?

      • didn’t watch the video yet.
        hmm, maybe next will be something like the organic pod thingy in existenz?
        dunno that i’d want to plug something into my spine, though.
        a holodeck would be better. muchly so.

      • Watch the video! Seriously, even a couple minutes is enough to give you an idea of what it’s like . . .

        • watched it. not good for anyone jumpy or easily startled, that’s for sure, and yeah, the sound, like with the heart pounding, could cause a definite adrenaline rush. i can’t even imagine playing something like silent hill with this (which really freaks me out.)
          is the headset heavy? can it cause motion sickness in anyone prone?
