Well, actually not the future. The present. See, when first they announced the Oculus Rift VR headset, I thought, “Oh, virtual reality. I liked The Lawnmower Man. This should be weird.”
Then, modder Nathan Andrews got the headset working with Half-Life 2, and I thought, “Oh, wow. OK. I’d love to use this thing.” Now he’s done the same thing with the original Crysis, and watching the above video, my feelings are somewhat more refined: “Yep, I still want to play this thing. Also, I miss the first Crysis.”
Behold, independent head and arm movement. Nifty. Andrews notes that he hasn’t yet modded the crosshairs to track properly, which is why his aiming is a bit off. He’s using a Mag II gun controller, which he says works well. If you want to see what it looks like with him wearing it, check out the Half-Life 2 video linked above.
So how far would you guys say we are from full-on Far Cry 3 cybersex here? A month? A couple months? Like, four months?
