    I did something similar last night but with a VR headset and £400. I'm sure it will be fine, not like we're about to be in the biggest market crash since the fall of the South Sea Company or anything...



    Edit: By the way Beastars is out on Netflix. Not the best subs though, they even mistranslated two main character names so now Louis is Rouis and Haru is Hal.

    Well VR headset manufacturers were already severely struggling to keep up with demand after the announcement of a new Half Life game. Valve had to stop taking orders for theirs for a few months because they couldn't keep up. Mine is slated to be back in stock April so I'm basically not expecting it to ever turn up lol

    I don't think I'd like VR...

    In Domino's, waiting for a pizza.

    Nope. I've been following VR development closely for ten years hoping that the field of view would go up and that the prices would go down but the screen tech has hit a number of roadblocks preventing them from going up in size, speed, and resolution (mostly GPU and cable bandwidth related) and, due to some of the bigger VR makers not selling their product in Europe (HP and Samsung), while the prices have gone down in the US it hasn't happened in the UK. Instead of letting the prices go down the makers just stop selling their products altogether resulting in you having to buy them second hand if you want them cheaper which is a big risk as VR headsets have high fail rates and can quickly wear out.

    That said Qualcomm is developing a new processor architecture designed specifically for VR, Nvidia's 3000 series architecture is rumoured to be godly and new cable bandwidth specifications are being ratified so two years down the line things should get better. I'm just sick of waiting for it.

    Find a VR arcade and try it. :p

    Trevor Noah's put out a statement that he's postponing his upcoming tour dates, so think we can safely assume I'll no' be going into Glasgow next Fri.

    Aye well, more time for Animal Crossing! :D

    It’s getting to that hour of the night where my money gets spent on all things pony and cute. So to combat this, tonight I’m watching My Little Pony The Movie. Hopefully that will sort it. Night night all x

    And I was up until 2:30 picking an office chair. Might regret the one I got, don't care, not going back in there. An overwhelming deluge of decisions.

    Hey everyone. Hope you all are well.

    I eventually need to go out to buy some food today but the weather is bad and it's so warm in bed.

    I myself went for a big grocery trip before breakfast (because no milk). Have emerged unnecessarily laden. Enchilada kit.

    I like how the website I ordered my VR headset from is sending me daily order status updates when there's nothing to update me with. :rolleyes::D
