Strike Suit Zero & The Oculus Rift

Strike Suit Zero will have support for the Oculus Rift VR Headset!



Imagine taking to a fully 3D cockpit, navigating space and looking about your environment as if you were actually there. The Oculus Rift will allow you to look all around you, letting you keep track of the enemy in a way that doesn't just rely on a radar. This will really change up the core dogfighting experience.

For those unaware, the Oculus Rift is a “virtual reality (VR) headset designed specifically for video games that will change the way you think about gaming forever. With an incredibly wide field of view, high resolution display, and ultra-low latency head tracking, the Rift provides a truly immersive experience that allows you to step inside your favorite game and explore new worlds like never before.” Oculus was also made possible thanks to Kickstarter.

If you have not heard about Strike Suit Zero here's a little snippet about the game and a kickstarter to help out!, which has already achieved it's goal.

Strap yourself into the titular Strike Suit – a mecha form capable of more than jet-like jousting – and dive into the civil war foiling humanity’s expansion efforts; Smith wouldn’t tell us all the details, but we did hear something about a mysterious third faction. But never mind that: you job is to shoot things and not drop your choice of joystick, controller or mouse and keyboard while gaping at the loveliness of thoughtful space combat.
Strike Suit Zero is due on PC via Steam, origin and other digital distributors in northern autumn, and is expected on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in early 2013.

WarZ Developers Release NEW anti cheat measures !





WarZ Developers release new anti cheat measures, here's what they are saying on twitter

Good news, everyone!

Our new and improved anti-cheat system is finally live. Over the past few weeks we've been collecting data on the ways folks are hacking (ESP hack, adjusting weapon settings, no clipping) and have updated our code.

This means that using any cheats or hacks, or even ATTEMPTING to use them, will result in a ban.

First offense will result in a 24-72 hour ban.

Second offense... permaban.

SO, this is a formal warning to the 0.8% of you using cheats - stop what you are doing or face the consequences.
