The Oculus Rift Hands-On Preview | ...Or How I Stepped Into Another World (Dealspwn)

Dealspwn: "With the Rift headset on, Mars City is no longer jut a video game environment, and I'm no longer just a puppet-master, forcing a virtual marionette to jump, sprint, shoot, and dance when I tell it to. The first-person perspective is perfect: I'm looking out through virtual eyes, cut off from my own reality in terms of sight and sound and utterly focused on blasting the limbs off of Hellspawn. I forget for ten minutes that I'm sat in a swanky hotel suite in Cologne, I have to remind myself to breathe. I peer around a corner, turning my head in the process, and immediately jerk it back as I'm met by a 3D demon that's closer than comfort. Looking up into its eyes, I set my head once more and align my sights." (Dev, Oculus, Oculus Rift, Tech)
