"Dr. Blythe thought it was his duty to tell Leslie that there was a chance for Dick," said Anne with spirit, "and," she added, loyalty to Gilbert getting the better of her, "I agree with him."
1、Or any of my leisures ever charmed.<p>Some people say 2016 is the year of virtual reality. Those people aren't wrong, but we've already had the golden age of VR - the early 1990s.</p><p>Crouched ominously in the corners of cinemas, arcades, and other places you might find a battered arcade machine begging for your quarters, was the coolest VR device we've seen thus far.</p><p>A huge circular pod that could hold a single person wearing a gigantic yellow and black headset, they clutched a plastic gun at head height in a way dangerous to everyone around them, turning haphazardly to shoot at enemies only they could see.</p><p>Sure, they looked like a jerk, but they looked like they were having fun too, so you decided you wanted a go.</p><p>That was the promise of Virtuality, a company on the frontlines of the battle to get virtual reality machines into arcades in the early '90s. Founded by Dr Jonathan Waldern, the company’s machines started bringing the future to arcades in 1991.</p><p>The games actually weren't really the draw here, and to be honest most of them were awful. It was how the machines looked that got us dropping quarters, and whatever it was we used in the UK instead of quarters, into those slots.</p><p>Virtuality's pods looked incredible, the machines themselves part of the theatre and spectacle of the whole thing. Get past that and there was the promise: a virtual reality arcade machine that could take you to a magical world far far away - as long as you could ignore the noise of the crowds and the smell of stale sweat.</p><p>That stale sweat whiff is on the headset the attendant lowered over your head unfortunately. A headset that managed to be way too large for your cranium whilst also being totally unbalanced.</p><p>Turning too rapidly could give you whiplash or pull your neck muscles as you struggled to compensate.</p><p>But it still felt like the future, so you persevered. Locked into the pod, you find yourself trapped, with limited room for movement. You persevere. It's time for your five minutes of future - it’s Tron-o’clock.</p><p>A few minutes later you staggered from the pod wearily. This wasn't Tron, it wasn't even Lawnmower Man. You felt sick, and you weren’t sure whether you needed to lay down or have a quick blast on Captain America And The Avengers.</p><p>Virtuality had transported you to a magical world, but all you could do there was walk slowly around the woods while poorly animated skeletons attacked you.</p><p>You're done with VR for now.</p><p>This was a story that played out a hundred thousand times. By the mid '90s Virtuality was tanking hard, expecting the high-tech gear to distract consumers from the fact its games often lacked story, graphical power or, somewhat tellingly, gameplay.</p><p>This brings me to my point - you knew i'd make one eventually, right? As an industry we’ve learned the lessons that Viruality had to teach us.</p><p>We've even cracked movement. The pod now, could be the size of the room. The skeletons attacking you could have the full budget of a AAA blockbuster behind them.</p><p>It's time not for Virtuality, but for what Virtuality represented, to come back to life. Put a virtual reality room in the concourse of every mall, every arcade, the corner of every particularly spacious pub. Let us fly planes, float through space, or even just play our friends at pretend table tennis.</p><p>Unlike the efforts of the VR pods in the '90s, we no longer need to hide terrible games behind flashy hardware - we can deliver an intense and exciting five minute experience in virtual reality.</p><p>And that experience could, and indeed should, be delivered to anyone that's got a fiver and a bit of time to kill in Westfields on a Saturday morning.</p><p>Although you’ll probably still have to deal with the smell of stale sweat.</p>
2、<p>Wasteland, or WASTELAND!, to portray it with the same level of excitement that developer Benfont Limited has opted for, is an upcoming shooter that's heading for iOS on March 1st, with pre-orders open now.</p><p>It takes place following a decade where the world had been in a constant state of war. At one stage, someone unleashed the terrifying Mutents upon the world. They are giant insects that not only boast increased size but also intelligence and movement speed, making them a real threat.<p>WASTELAND! Portrait mode FPS - Available now for Pre-Order on the App Store.Gameplay recorded on an iPhone 8 - link below:@AppStoreGames @PocketGamer #madewithunity https://t.co/09JzzUGK3x pic.twitter.com/IV3eGr30oO— benfontltd (@BenfontLtd) January 12, 2021Following their arrival in the world, humanity struggled to contain the Mutents and effectively destroyed the planet in an attempt to eliminate them. Now, 20 years later very few people remain. So, it'll be up to you to step out into the titular wasteland and gun down as many of these oversized creepy crawlies as possible, in the name of revenge.</p><p>WASTELAND itself then is a first-person shooter that's designed to be played in portrait mode as you explore its huge world in search of Mutents to slay. There will be several variants of these creatures to kill including giant spiders and mosquitoes. You can check out some gameplay in the embedded tweet above.</p><p>According to the developer, it will offer hours of gameplay for players to enjoy once they've completed the tutorial. Alongside numerous variants of enemies to face, there will be six weapons to utilise to destroy them. The game will also support controllers, good news for fans of shooters who can't get along with touch screen controls.</p><p>WASTELAND! is available to pre-order now over on the App Store ahead of its expected launch on March 1st. It will be a premium title that costs $4.99.</p>Looking for more shooters to play on your phone? Here are 15 of the best available for iPhone and iPadMetal Slug : Commander(Mod Menu)
3、<p>Nintendo has announced that Xenoblade Chronicles 3D will be out for the New Nintendo 3DS on April 2nd in Europe.</p><p>It'll also be out in the US in April but no specific date was given.</p><p>As previously outlined, this 3DS remake of the 2011 Wii JRPG will only be available for the New Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL.</p><p>This is due to the CPUs in the older 3DS models not being powerful enough to run the game as intended.</p><p>The 3DS's second screen is used during the game to view maps and character stats.</p><p>Prepare to be fighting dragons and giant robots in a few months time, then. Well, if you intend on also buying a New Nintendo 3DS, that is.</p>
4、<p>This is probably the most ridiculous thing you'll see today.</p><p>A hacker (going by the name "Hacker Jules") has managed to get an N64 emulator running on Android Wear.</p><p>As they demonstrate in the video below, this enables them to play games including Mario 64 and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on a smartwatch.</p><p>How?</p><p>Good question. It doesn't look easy. In the video the N64 games are played on the tiny touchscreen of an LG G Watch W100. Just look at this:</p>

3、"`Lad, I know. I've lost friends before because of this. I don't blame them. There are times when I feel hardly friendly to myself because of it. Such a power has a bit of divinity in it--whether of a good or an evil divinity who shall say? And we mortals all shrink from too close contact with God or devil.'<p>At long last, Switch fans will get to enjoy a Dragon Ball game with Dragon Ball FighterZ, announced by Bandai Namco at E3.</p><p>The fighting game will have the same style as the anime, and will feature 3 vs. 3 battle mechanics. You'll need to build the best team possible in order to conquer your enemies and rise to the top.</p><p>The trailer doesn't reveal much - it's more of a teaser, really - but it's a flashy, hyper teaser that's certainly enough to whet our appetites.</p>
