Ridicule of the Day: The Internet Rightfully Mocks Time Magazine's VR Cover



As the video game industry prepares for what could possibly be a massive shift in the medium, Time magazine revealed its cover story on virtual reality Aug. 6.

Virtual reality communication company AltspaceVR wants to up the nerd-factor in your next D&D session with v20, a social software allowing you and your digital friends to use Oculus Rift headsets to play D&D around a virtual table. 

It seems pretty counter-intuitive for a game about imagination, but this software lets you, by means of avatars, feel like you're sitting at a table in real life with your friends. There are loads of 2D options out there if you're looking for a way to virtually play D&D, but only this one will let you do it in 3D. 



The software has been endorsed by Wizards of the Coast, and a commercial build is expected to be released in 2016.

Zero Latency's free roaming VR room combines an Oculus Right, a computer you carry on your back, and motion sense to put players directly into games. If you get too close to a wall or another player, the game warns you with visual cues and you're not allowed to run (for your own safety), but otherwise it's like you're really inside the level you're playing.
