So imagine playing the Walking Dead through Lee's eyes! Introducing the Oculis Rift

posted by DatDude on - last edited - Viewed by 359 users

Imagine playing not just the character Lee, but becoming Lee's eyes. The world becomes your world. Your aren't just playing the walking dead, you ARE in the walking dead.

The Oculus Rift. Virtual Reality head set due for mass retail in 2014 and will be easily applied to most games via mods. It's cost ranges in the 500$ mark and up.

  • @DatDude said: Well, that's like your opinion, man

    didn't mean to say it's a bad idea, not at all just making some bad jokes :)
    my opinion is: I'd like to have such a thing, but I definitely would wait before buying it, i'd check reviews first.

  • While the whole idea is fantastic (of course), I don't think that it would work with the game like this. It wasn't constructed with this thing in mind. Even if somehow it would work, the experience would be weird and awkward, and you totally would not be immersed, unless Telltale decides to create some sort of a special version designed for stuff like this.

    Just putting camera into Lee's eyes won't work, I'm afraid. Still, this will work like a charm with FPS and probably Racing games.

  • Give it a major price drop and I'd get it. Not for TWD but for most other games, would be neat.

    Edit: Can you imagine playing a game like Silent Hill or Amnesia with those things?

    Amnesia :eek:.

  • I'll buy one if they work well. Hell, my "non-virtual" headphones already cost me $600.

    Must be nice to be rich :)

    If you play video games with your computer, then you've probably blown more on a computer then 600$. If you played TWD with a console you've spent at least 600$ dollars, not counting your television and your games for your console. So, not that rich.

  • I wasn't that serious.
    I blow my money on a lot less useful stuff than that :)
    Most of that stuff was bought during my college time though... So, the government lent me the money for my computer. Nowadays I have to rethink any item I buy.

  • Seems interesting but i doubt it would work well with TWD in particular. It doesn't seem to fit with this style of game.

    Can you imagine if they put pain simulations in and you could use it while cutting your own arm off in game? Oh god...

  • @Rock114 said: How many of us would REALLY want to enter the world of The Walking Dead? Think how much more emotional damage would have been sustained if people had actually BEEN there, instead of just being immersed in the narrative.

    XD you are so right!

    how do we know the headphones dont release a soundwave that makes us in a trance that makes us unaware of our surrounding?
