Facebook Bringing Ads to Oculus Quest Apps

This is fucked up.

According to a new report from The Verge, Facebook will soon place ads within Oculus Quest apps. Over the next several weeks, ads will begin appearing in games like Blaston from Resolution Games in addition to two other apps that have yet to be named. Facebook says that they will "expand" the system based on user feedback. It claims that they are aiming to create a "self-sustaining platform" for VR development.

Review: RIG 500 Pro HX Gen 2 Headset for Xbox

Fantastic audio quality at an affordable price.

I was recently given the opportunity to review some new hardware from RIG (they are owned by NACON now). You already saw what I thought about the RIG Pro Compact Wired Controller. It was a solid device with a lot working in its favor. Now, we are looking at the second generation of their 500 Pro headset. Specifically, this review is about the 500 Pro HX, a headset designed for use with the Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Windows 10....
 

Review: RIG Pro Compact Wired Controller with Dolby Atmos

Small form factor. Big buttons. Bigger audio.

The new Pro Compact Wired Controller with Dolby Atmos from RIG Gaming (now owned by NACON), is a great controller packed with a lot of features at a great price. There, that is the full review. Thank you all for stopping by to read this and we will see you in the next one!

In all seriousness though, the Pro Compact really is a great controller. I have been using it for the past couple of weeks now in a variety of games on my...

    GoldenEye Maps Recreated Fully in Far Cry 5

    It took Krollywood over two and a half years to finish.

    Though I have never used it myself, I have heard that the level editor for Far Cry 5 allows for some rather detailed creations. And while 1997's GoldenEye probably isn't the most detailed of games by today's standards, it's still mighty damn impressive that someone took the time to faithfully recreate the game's 18 maps, minus the two bonus levels.

    YouTube creator "Krollywood" spent the better part of the...

    Throughout the day, a handful of Battlefield-adjacent content creators were sent mysterious messages through their Twitter DMs. They were sent from the official Battlefield account to people like Lirik, Jackfrags, Westie, and DustelBox.

    On their own their message is disjointed and incomplete. When put together they paint a picture of a fallen nation, or species, caught up in a war they had no choice but to join. It's weird...

    Maybe the entire film is a noir.

    Just two days back, Jamie Lee Curtis shared the first behind the scenes look at Lilith (played by Cate Blanchett) from the upcoming Borderlands film. There was no mistaking it, that sure looked like Lilith.

Part of the conversation focused on what cuts had to be made to the PlayStation 4 release of Horizon Forbidden West. As this is a cross-gen release from Sony, you knew that sacrifices had to be made somewhere for the previous gen.
