Count Me In: Playing Skyrim In Virtual Reality

February 3, 2014

This is a video of the folks at Cyberith demonstrating their Virtualizer omnidirectional treadmill coupled with an Oculus Rift headset and Wii-Motes. The result? The closest you can get to existing in Skyrim short of TRONing your ass in there somehow. I miss Skyrim. I lived there for over 120 hours and got the platinum trophy to prove it. I was such a badass dragons didn't even want to f*** with me anymore. I wanted to f*** with them though, so I'd chase them down and DO BATTLE. Those were the days. Now? Now I just sit at the bar telling stories about what I used to do in Skyrim. One time when I was really low-level, this giant smacked me with his club and sent me flying to my death. So then I leveled up and came back to find him. Now I have a giant's toe necklace. "Pretty sure that's a penis." Well yeah, the toes are at home. It's not exactly casual Friday, now is it?

Keep going for the worthwhile video.

Thanks to Nathaniel T, who agrees there need to be new Elder Scrolls and Fallout games ASTNAP (as soon to now as possible).
