Report: Valve Working On Its Own VR Headset, May Include A Half-Life VR Title

VR website UploadVR has confirmed with multiple sources that a previous imgur asset leak indeed shows prototypes of an upcoming Valve VR headset separate from the current Vive initiative with partner company HTC.

The device may come with a Half-Life VR title that could be a prequel as well as two Knuckles motion controllers. The unnamed unit also supports a 135° field of view with "roughly the same angular resolution as the current HTC Vive."

That Valve is striking out on with its own VR headset is not surprising given the resources the company has devoted to the technology including its SteamVR platform and upcoming titles.

Battlefield 1 Players Cease Fire To Commemorate 100th Anniversary Of WWI

about X hours ago from

With today marking the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, players in Battlefield 1 briefly stopped shooting one another, at their 11 a.m. local time in Melbourne, to observe the armistice. 

11 a.m. on November 11 is when Armistice Day ceremonies have a two-minute moment of silence. While not everyone complied in-game, most did. It's really neat to see a group of players have a moment of silence in a video game.

The cease fire was captured on video and posted on Reddit. EA DICE's Jan David Hassel took note of it on Twitter, which you can view below (the video is in the tweet as well).

McDonald’s Canada Confirms Ronald Will Not Be A Fighter In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

The internet is a weird place. With rumors spreading about the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, one fan decided to ask McDonald's Canada about the inclusion of a certain famous clown mascot. Why not, right?

McDonald's Canada promptly tweeted back a response, confirming that there are no current plans to bring Ronald McDonald to the upcoming game. 

Hi Chris. Although seeing Ronald McDonald battle other characters in Smash Bros would be pretty neat, he will not be making an appearance in the new game as of right now.

More Than 29,000 Dominoes Used In Incredible Red Dead Redemption II Tribute

Red Dead Redemption II has been out for a few weeks now, and it been receiving massive success and record-breaking sales. YouTuber TheDominoKing, known best for his pop-culture and video game-related domino masterpieces, has dedicated his latest project to the massive open-world Western.

With 29,375 dominoes, TheDominoKing portrays Arthur Morgan, Red Dead's logo, and one of Arthur's quotes. It took a week to create, and he started before he even played the game.

"I started working on this video before I even had the chance to play the game, so I had high hopes for the game, which I can gladly say it lived up to," writes TheDominoKing in the YouTube description.

See How The DS Was Able To Pull Off The Legend Of Zelda: Spirit Tracks In This Video

See How The DS Was Able To Pull Off The Legend Of Zelda: Spirit Tracks In This Video

The DS Legend of Zelda games are some of the series' most forgotten. Eschewing traditional controls for a purely touched-based approach, both Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks split the Zelda community. I for one love their dungeons designs, but think Phantom Hourglass had issues with the central dungeon you had to revisit multiple times, while Spirit Tracks felt too small for a Zelda game and had several frustrating segments. Its central dungeon, however, was pretty good.

Anyway, the latest episode of youtuber Shesez's series Boundary Break takes a look at some of the tricks that makes Spirit Tracks tick. While there's a classic movement trick pulled off here (moving the environment around an object instead of moving the object itself in order to simulate movement), there are some more interesting things to observe, such as several rooms reserved exclusively for your chats with a single side character, how objects in the world exist only when they're in your view (this is fairly common in video game and is known as "culling," but this is a pretty extreme case).
