The first thought I had when I heard about the Oculus Rift was: "Oh man, I can't wait to play Mirror's Edge on that." My second thought was: "It is going to make me so sick."
Over the past two months, I have played a lot of games on my Oculus Rift development kit, from Half Life and Dishonored to Macross and Portal 2. I have even spent more than a few hours watching movies on it. But this was all in the hopes of building up some kind of a resistance to the Oculus Rift so I could play the first-person, free-running title, Mirror's Edge.
So join me as I play a bit of it and talk about the positives and negatives when it comes to playing games on the Rift in general — and ones that only run on it thanks to fan-created drivers, specifically.
Also, we'll see if I can make it to the end of the level without losing my lunch.
