Mr Timz

Mr Timz Please kill yourself, This entire post you have said nothing but ignorant comments without a general purpose except to regain some sort of fucking ignorant sense of control. I will take a wild guess and say that your a fat blob that plays games all day and dosent know what re-life even is, having your brain wired to google and calling it your knowledge. Good job.... good job.... P.S. (Its a fucking TV. Pretty colors.... fuck you)

I'm sure

I'm sure it's cool an everything for a few minuets or so, but I really don't want to put something that big and bulky on my head. Also having to pause what I'm playing or watching every time I want to grab my drink or food from my desk or table would really suck, I spill enough drinks without something like that on my face.

Ive tried the Oculus Rift,

Ive tried the Oculus Rift, bashing this thing is like bashing the next leap in evolution for home entertainment. Once you try it, you would never knock it. Yeah it's literally a game changer. Not just for games, movies too.

Propaganda bandwagoning Tool

People like you are the reason why the whole 3D trend hasn't died out yet. I bet you have like an 80 inch 3D plasma TV and watch movies by yourself wearing fucking sunglasses in a dark room (Smart) and all for what? MAYBE 2 or 3 scenes in the entire movie you thought was worth spending a few extra grand on a TV and a few more dozen dollars per bu-ray because it's the "IN" thing. Get the fuck out of here and stop being a propaganda bandwagoning tool and open your eyes, you're not in VR, not fucking yet.

Back in Time

Then please go back to the Stone Age and keep playing with your little stone tool. Stop annoying the rest of us who are here trying to have an interest in a "new technology" in the modern world. There are many things which could benefit from this tech, not just games and movies. Try to start thinking outside the box a little.

You're right

There are many things we can benefit from this tech but none of which will help you comprehend how stupid you just sounded by failing to understand this is not about the tech, it's how its being used as a trend to make money off retards such as yourself. Maybe if you would apply yourself to this reality instead of masturbating to the thought of virtual porn sites wearing a fucking helmet you might see outside the box. 4D is where it is at, tool.

This is vr done right. it's

This is vr done right. it's what everybody wanted for years, this isn't your old fashioned POS vr, this is the main piece of the puzzle to move game/movie/application tech into a new and better direction. You just make your self sound like an idiot, cause i know you will be all over this thing when it comes out.

Wrong, as always.

You sound like a bitch in heat bent over and panting waiting for that big thick VR cock in your pussy until you find out woops, they put it in the wrong hole and with no lube. All I hear is another kid screaming "THIS IS THE GREATEST THING EVER!" and then a bunch of bullshit afterwards why it is. Keep reading game informer magazines.


I'm sorry, but are you a moron? When DVD came out did you bash people about wanting their movies on a disc...because VHS is perfect...and why on earth did we need CD's...cassette tapes worked absolutely fine! Hey why did we even move to colour TV - we should have stuck with black and white which was far superior! 3D is going to take over. Granted, they need to make the jump to glasses-less TVs a lot quicker, but its going to happen. Same as's gonna be big - so just shut up, give it a try, and who knows - you may even love it.

Yeah you can go fuck yourself

You don't see me smearing your name all over MG and discrediting you, do ya? Oh, that's right, I cant - because you're the same gutless prick that was hiding under a pseudonym and hounding the fuck out of me over a month ago and you're the same gutless prick now. I guess life is easier when you don't have to deal with you're actions, aye, coward. Leave me the fuck out of your debates.

My motto: Treat others as you would like to be treated.

Yeah, hows about that

Oh, okay, so suddenly it's my fault that it's impossible to differentiate one anonymous user from the rest. Now do you see the importance of having a fixed user account? It only takes one anonymous asshole to discredit the rest of them. So maybe, just maybe all that hate and attention should be directed towards you... Captcha: Open season. YEE-HAW!

My motto: Treat others as you would like to be treated.

Yeah, none of your opinions matter

And your're just provoking and attacking me for no apparent reason, that's one of the reasons why I post on here anonymously. Calling me out trying to compare me with someone else, of cause I'm gonna defend myself, that's called honor. You know honor, right? Ya know what, fuck it, I don't think I'll use my account anymore, instead, I'll just come on as Mr. Anonymous, run-a-muck and make as many anonymous users on here as miserable as I possibly can. Who knows, I might do such a good job someone might even off themselves... Ain't life grand in a world full of assholes!

My motto: Treat others as you would like to be treated.

How does hiding under the

How does hiding under the moniker "Mike T" make you any more accountable for what you do or say? You're still just some anonymous guy on the internet and nobly is forcing you to even look over what you've said once you say it, let alone respond to others. It's only your irrational anger and hatred that seems to be bringing you back to have the last word, which is very much your own problem - not anyone else's. Nobody was provoking you or attacking you, you're acting up like am entitled, tantrum-prone child.

Jesus Christ!

Is this intentional? Or do some on MG really not follow what others are saying? I'm done. Everyone change the record. And from here on out I'll just post as anonymous, save me the headache.

My motto: Treat others as you would like to be treated.

Obviously the one who not

Obviously the one who not only manufactures bizarre opinions for others to have, but thinks people they irrationally don't like should kill themselves (hint: it's you). I'm serious, that's not a healthy mentality and normal mentally stable people do not think like that. Get help before its too late, please.

He's right, you know, you

He's right, you know, you have no right bringing him into a conversation he is not already part of. I see what he's getting at with the assholes bit, unfortunately the world is ran by assholes and they are the ones causing all the problems, I too often wish they would take the honorable route and off themselves, you'd see those problems clear up really quickly. Personally, I think you are really stretching by saying he is putting words in other peoples mouth and supports the death of different ethnic groups. Stop being so defensive all the time.

WTF are you on about?

This ain't about people killing themselves for my own pleasure. What, are you fucking mental! This is about the ones causing all the problems and continuing to do so and not taking the intuitive to end it themselves; like yourself. F - for failing at reading comprehension.

My motto: Treat others as you would like to be treated.

Uh huh, try to justify it

Uh huh, try to justify it however you want, wanting people to kill themselves because it would make your happier is wanting them to do it for your own pleasure. It doesn't make you any less of a monster. Read your posts, try to convince yourself you're acting like a rational adult, then seek help.

It doesn't matter

You're on the internet, every blog, forum and commentary section are all the same. Get used to it, or die crying about it. As bad as I am, I still got nothing on how bad the people are leaving YouTube comments throwing out the race and religion card every video. I do have SOME morale values ya know.


An equivocal statement or expression of which you failed to see that you yourself fall under... I love word games 0_o
