The lights are on
We've seen a number of fun things come out of the Oculus Rift creator community. We've seen heads chopped off and a man suspend himself from a tree to simulate skydiving (note: please do not sue Oculus VR if you fall out of a tree). Today we'll finally get to bullseye a ray-shielded shaft as if it were a womprat.
Boone Calhoun has recreated the Death Star trench run scene from Star Wars Episode IV. You'll be able to blast turret towers, but the demo video ends before TIE Fighters and Darth Vader's TIE Advanced enter the fray. That also means we don't get to see the Death Star blow up after turning off the targeting computer and pumping two photon torpedoes into that shaft.
Here's hoping that the full version takes players through the end of that dramatic sequence. Poor Porkins.

A little trippy, but still awesome.
Needs to be much faster.
it would be awesome if its across, but yeah. would buy the oculus just for this!
i hope there bringing oculus fr consoles
Hmm... kind of looks like it's built around procedural generation. You can see it popping up new obstacles far on the horizon at random. I approve! Although I hope we do see some actual dogfighting and trench bombing. I wish that one indie game I found online that offered that was still up for download. I took a few pics on my Steam account, but I'm not sure if I even have the game on my HDD anymore.
The thing that I like about the Rift is that you actually have to adjust your focus to see further away vs closer up... or at least, that's how it seems when I cross-eye view these videos. But from what I have heard, that's how it works.
This is pretty cool... hopefully more games can do this, and that the consumer version comes out soon!
That's the perfect thing to do VR with, certainly.
Between this (and hopefully Rift compatible Battle Front 3) and Rift support on WarThunder...I want one.
Too many wants, not enough Benjamins to buy them...
Dang, that's terrific. EA: I hope you're watching this. This NEEDS to be a game.
