Red Alert 2 Demo in VR

Someone took the time to remake at least part of Red Alert 2 in the Unreal 4 engine for the Vive. It's pretty rad if you ask me

That looks PHENOMENAL. I love the tablet menu idea. That's very cool.

This is why I think VR will make the quickest gains on PC. People will throw together small little things like this and AAA developers will steal all their good ideas.

RTS pros would hate having to mouse select every function. Have you ever seen those mutants play? It looks like they're typing.

I can understand that.

And honestly I don't forsee VR being a tournament concept for anything, really.

The thing about tech, and peripherals, is that it's ALWAYS about good design. But good design is dictated by the task.

The biggest problem with the wii was developers not making games that utilized the wii's controller and instead mapping digital button presses onto an analog baton. It makes no sense even on paper. Of course people hated it.

In that same vein, people who play games that require precision, quick response and repitive tasks are going to find VR cumbersome and painful. After-all, computers were basically BUILT to eliminate and make easy the things that VR is now trying to build. So VR is going to succeed where PCs aren't already the better-solution.

I think this is amazing, but I don't really see playing Red Alert this way. Now Populous? Absolutely. Magic Carpet? Holy cow, definitely.

One of my top five games of all time. I think I got to within the top 400 one month on Westwood Online.

This is the shit.

ROCKETEERS AND KIROV's, such a great battle.
