Poll Results – I Swear I’m Done With the Oculus

Last week’s poll asked whether you thought that the Oculus Rift would change the face of gaming. With 100% of the vote, you did not think that it would. From last week’s post I believe I made my feelings clear. To reiterate, I think that VR headsets could potentially be innovative tools. However, in the same way…

Backers of the Oculus Rift Should Not be Reimbursed

The Oculus Rift was a successful Kickstarter project that has had a…

Poll Results – Normal is the New Normal?

With 50% of the vote, Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest was number 1. The rest of the vote was split evenly between Donkey…
