  1. Thanks for watching day 5 of RMC Stuff week, I hope you've enjoyed all the videos this week. Do you have VR and if so what are you playing? The only other games I've played so far is VTOL VR and Steam Labs so all recommendations appreciated! Neil – RMC

  2. Isn’t it Home @ PS3 that never got enough traction? There were games, people to talk… here it all look nice but as you mentioned no people at all 🙁
    Speaking of early 3D, I was playing Need For Speed Porsche 2000 using 3D glasses from Asus, connected via cable do Asus GeForce card. With ADi 17” monitor with Trinitron screen capable of 640×480 at 200 Hz, and way up to 1600×1200 at 75 Hz. At 200 Hz there was virtually no eye flickering typical to already died 3D LCD TVs.

  3. imagine this with a full body virtual reality thing and total multiplayer interaction, like "the other people online sharing the space will be there too, and you can play with them or watch them play". in 10 or 20 years we'll be doing what we already did in the 80s and 90s, but in virtual reality! hahaha.

  4. This is just way too awesome! I would love to play this myself, especialliy if they included some proper multiplayer gaming. It would be amazing. Haha and I completely lost ot when you chucked the bottle from the bar xD Brilliant video as always. Cheers!

  5. I sure wish arcades were more of a thing these days. There is a giant-ass arcade/mini golf/batting range/go kart establishment named 'Castle Fun Park' in my city, but it would be nice if they had more arcades.

  6. I can't help but feel a bit sad watching this. Standing alone in a room in a pretend arcade. I went to Arcade Club up in Bury a couple of months ago, there were hundreds of people there and the atmosphere was incredible. Felt just how I remembered it, watching people play, trying to do your best on a game, chatting about games. I really can't say enough, if you're in the UK and haven't been to Arcade Club. GO there. I was chilling having a chat and a beer after playing something and I could see peoples faces as they turned the corner into the place. I haven't seen so many happy, excited people in a long time.

    They have a load of VR setups too so you could probably play this there in a weird kind of way.

  7. For your information, that pre-configured arcade that's out there has a stupidly large attract movie file and it tanks your performance when using it. Even the devs of NRA don't recommend you use it. And, for what it's worth, the Oculus touch controllers are WAY more suited to NRA than the vive wands. Give it a try if you get the chance.

  8. Wow! New Retro Arcade has come quite a ways since I tried the open beta 2 years ago when I played it using the DK2. It still looks fun as ever and was/is as great way to showcase VR to those who might be too motion sensitive to try faster moving VR titles.

    I still only have a DK2, and it's been collecting dust in my closet for about a year now. For my money, the CV1 & Vive weren't large enough leaps in technical specs (compared to the DK2) to justify the purchase prices, not to mention the lack of "must have" titles on both platforms. VR is still unfortunately a very niche market but it's nice to see it growing. I will revisit VR in a few years once the price has come down a bit and there is a backlog of worthwhile titles.

  9. Well if I`ve learned one thing it`s that I now know who caused my fall in the Blackpool arcade way back in the eighties! That Virtual Arcade looked amazing & brought back so many memories, There can`t be many of these kinda places left now. The only thing missing are the Fruit Machines & Pinball Tables. You became the crane grab & after grabbing that poor robot & his launch into the unknown, I would think he`ll need counselling for a long time. LOL An awesome series of bonus content. Many Thanks

  10. Beer bottles thrown around in an arcade? How old were the guys in UK arcades? I just remember the smell of cigarettes, crisps and chewing gum (yes, schoolkids could buy cigarettes back then) 🙂

  11. I have a close friend who is heavily into modern VR; he held a party to partake in literally what you are playing, and I just couldn't adjust. It felt weird and made me feel sick. I suppose that I could adapt over time to it, but it just wasn't for me. The sound atmosphere of the arcade was top-notch, though.

    I was able to take VR more than 20 years ago at a mall that had the exhibits more than 20 years ago. Funny enough, I actually work with someone who was on the development team of the same machines I played in that mall. He… was better at the game then I was.

  12. For Multiplayer it would be needed to copy over the games to the other player, what causes licensing issues, or all players needs to have all games by themselfes, what might a hassle too. If you want a multiplayer VR bar games, take a look at "SportsBar VR"

  13. A great week of videos, thanks for this. I really want Retro Arcade Neon now, it looks amazing. Can it handle any amount of consoles/emulators in that area you were in last, or just the SNES?

  14. I've never before missed going to the arcades as much as I did watching this video. I've been waiting patiently for the next generation of VR, but after seeing this video, my patience is starting to wear thin. Great video. Thanks Neil. 🙂

  15. The worst thing about this for me is the same thing that's wrong with all VR titles and actually FPS in general: the head movement is all wrong. When you tilt your head 45° the entire world doesn't do the same, you only notice that your head is at an angle if you focus on your nose or wear glasses. I think that's where a lot of the motion sickness comes from.

  16. the vive is garbage. retro arcade neon is the worse choice for it, the vive's controls are garbage lmao. good luck trying to play a game comfortably with a touchpad instead of a joystick. should've gotten yourself an oculus rift.
    the vive is specially a waste of money seeing how the new gen of VR headsets is almost upon us.

  17. Haven't used VR, old enough to have played every one of those games when they were brand new. So weird to still be impressed by the graphics of Super Ghouls and Ghosts while it is played in a fake world of computer graphics that are far beyond anything I could have dreamed about back in the day!

  18. daft question neil, do you script these, and is there a blooper reel.. hehe.. great video by the way, i didn't realise VR had come so far since lawnmower man the detail was incredible, but like you said you miss other people being there..
