Okay. You win Tim. No Man’s Sky truly reaches its pinnacle when unplugged.

I’m really hyped about NMS VR. I own both the PC and PS4 version and I’m gonna play the shit out of this on PCVR with my friends as well as PSVR alone ^^

Given his powers Ethan definitely has a unique perspective on how transient existence can be.

Well, at least it’s ONE way to keep him out of trouble.

VR is unfair to people who need glasses………..

Not really, I wear glasses and the PSVR fits comfortably and works great.

On the contrary, I can wear my glasses fine inside every headset I’ve worn, including the PSVR, Vive, Rift S, Pimax 5K+, and one of the Acer MR headsets

You can get glasses inserts for the most common VR headsets. Just google vr lens lab, or widmo vr.

Wrong. I use my glasses when I use my Oculus Rift CV1 and it works perfectly. However you need THIN frames….not those dorky looking thick “OWL” frames.

Also what people below have mentioned….you can purchase lens inserts for ALL VR HMD.

Classic Ethan. Holy crap, that was funny.

It has VR and a Creative Mode – that’s all I needed to hear to give it a second chance.

I find it hilarious that the continual respawning doesn’t even register in Ethan’s brain, but playing an unplugged NMS causes him to question his entire existence.

Predictable punchline, but that doesn’t stop something from being funny 🙂

Kinda reminds me of the old Alone in the Dark one from many years ago!

I’ve never seen any post on Elite Dangerous. You stay away from that one Tim?

Tim if you ever do get yourself a new flight stick, You should really give it a try again. It’s a pretty damn engaging game without VR, and from the stories i’ve heard from people with VR, jumping into a system with giant stars right in your face is something to behold.

I’ve been really wanting to try these VR headset games but I never have been able to. Are they that immersive or is it still a gimmick? Like on a scale of Virtual Boy to Tron how much am I missing out on?

Go see if there’s a VR arcade anywhere near you. There’s one about an hour and a half away from where I live; I spent a while there, switching back and forth between games. Good time. Immersive, to a point. The arcade had it set up so I was in a cubicle, and could walk around and interact with anything in that area, and when I approached a wall I could see the outline faintly. Shooting dinosaurs in Island 359 and dodging bullets in Superhot was downright amazing. It gets weird when you’re trying to physically interact with anything; I… Read more »

I realized he wasn’t playing No Man’s Sky when he said “blackness”, because those developers made made the space in that game more colourful than a rave party.

I know there’s nebula and all, but space should not be indistinguishable from a sky.

“Ah, Cheerios. Like a bowl of milk filled with tiny inner-tubes and people, whom I repeatedly drown with my spoon.” If Ethan can be entertained like a champ with breakfast cereal, I see it as nothing being beyond him to love the heck out wearing an inactive Oculus Rift headset. And wait until Lucas suddenly plugs it in! What fun might be had in those moments of cognitive cross-jump? What game might pleasure or horrify his senses, and might he actually like it anyway? As a veteran CAD reader who got his start on the Ethan-net and your comic in… Read more »
