A Future Rift on a Rig

While I have ventured into the wonderful world of Virtual Reality through the use of PlayStation VR , the experience is rather limited due to the availability of the VR games on the console, not to mention the sheer pricing of such softwares…

Console gaming surely is not for the economic conscious individuals such as myself…

Before I even got myself the PSVR last year, I have always wanting to get a VR kit for my PC. Unfortunately at that time, my PC is not capable of supporting such high end device, and the said VR kits available on the market are too expensive for my taste.

However, such a problem no longer exists as I’ve just upgraded my rig earlier this year complete with VR-ready GPU.

While you can technically hook up your PSVR to the PC, it doesn’t have native support, so instead you’ll have to rely heavily on third-party softwares and a lot of setup to get it working, which I tried, and ultimately gave up due to all the hassles.

Fast forward 3rd Moon of this year, Oculus announced the successor to their popular VR Headset, the Oculus Rift. Aptly named the Oculus Rift S, this new unit have just begun its shipping around the world since last week.

Announcement of ILAMY2019

Although PAM has been cancelled/postponed to the coming year, it seems it has been replaced with a new event, with the venue shifted to Kuala Lumpur this time around…

Announced last weekend, the I Love Anisong Matsuri Malaysia 2019 will happen this June, and judging from the title itself, we can probably assume that it will be more focused upon concert this time around, although currently the officials are accepting applications for their Creator’s Hub corner. There will be exhibitions as well, I suppose…

Unfortunately, I can neither attend this event, nor can I C3AFA2019, due to a high probability I’ll catch a tour to Japan at the end of the year. It is an invitation from a close friend of mine for decades.

While still in the planning stage, I would like to preserve my funds for the big trip itself, as it’s been my raison d’être to finally visit the Land of the Rising Sun…

A Grand Quest in the 4th Moon

After the AR shooter spoof from last year, DW once again upped their antics this 1st of April by releasing yet another mini game or sort, this time in the form of a Dragon Quest/Final Fantasy like JRPG, complete with retro sprite graphics and 8-bit music.
