Neil's Messy Basement Geeks Out on Star Trek!

Star Trek Bridge CrewWe are SO excited about this.  What started as a leak turned into a hailstorm of ultimate geekness.  In today's episode of Neil's Messy Basement, we talk about our sheer excitement for the upcoming Ubisoft title Star Trek Bridge Crew that lets gamers cooperatively run a starship in virtual reality.

This is followed by a fascinating interview with Wanda Meloni, Executive Director of the Open Gaming Alliance and proud member of the Immersive Technology Alliance Advisory Board.  Wanda talks about womens' issues in the VR market, the viability of VR, how VR compares to mobile, and more.  Very interesting stuff!

We are planning another episode later this week to catch up.  Have fun!

Fallout 4 in VR...Again.

Fallout 4
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and boy is Bethesda Softworks sincere! As announced at E3 Expo, Fallout 4 is getting the native VR treatment on the HTC Vive come 2017. Not sure why it's taking them so long, but it's satisfying to know that thanks to the free and open source Vireio Perception 4.0 Alpha 2 release, we got room scale VR working on the Vive before the actual game developer did. That's something to be proud of!

We've been getting pinged asking if we will continue Fallout 4 VR support given Bethesda Softworks' plans for next year. The answer is we will complete the profile, though Vireio Perception was never intended to be a one game driver. Fallout 4 was just a coding model to develop certain architecture so we could dramatically diversify the game support a bit later. Each day brings us closer and closer to that goal. By 2017, which is a long way off, Vireio will have far more robust offerings than Fallout 4 on its own - that's for sure!

Congratulations to the Bethesda Softworks team! Looking forward to seeing your version of Fallout 4 in VR.

The E3 Expo Curse is Upon us!

Cat Meme
For reasons beyond our cotrol, we had to cancel our trip to E3 Expo this year.  We were fortunate to have trip cancellation insurance!  More than this, we had some tech problems which zapped this week's episode of Neil's Messy Basement.  A cursed week for sure!

HOWEVER, MTBS' Kris Roberts will be on the seen Tweeting his way through E3, there is an ITA meeting taking place for the membership during the show, AND we are going to double up the Neil's Messy Basement episodes next week to make up for the difference.  Finally, Vireio Perception's Denis Reischl will likely be back in action from his vacation, so we will have more news and updates to share.

Have fun at E3 Expo, everyone!  It's bound to be an exciting show.
