    It’s not the best joke in the world but it gets a chuckle from me at least. Craig potentially oversells the line a bit

    I think this is it, but then I actually like the “what’s an iguana?” joke, even Craig’s delivery so what do I know.

    Yeah some of the hastily put together (and often full price) VR ports are awful. I tried Borderlands 2 VR because I got it in the Humbler Bundle and it was fucking abysmal. But then I don’t really like Borderlands or Gearbox in general anyway.

    With Oculus can you only buy games from their shop? No external sales or anything? Because in my experience I’ve only paid more than £10 a couple of times for VR games, thanks to Steam sales, GOG/CDKeys etc, and humble bundles.

    With a bit of setup you can set your account as ‘developer’ so you can sideload what you like. There’s an external store called Sidequest that makes this nice and easy.

    Other than that, you can use the USB or Wireless streaming so your PC just treats it like a Rift so you can play absolutely any PCVR game you like.

    If it helps, they’ve done a hell of a lot of make the Quest feel premium. I’ve not had any problems with tracking, the resolution is basically as high as any other headset out there at the moment, it supports 120hz now, and so long as you don’t mind the trade-off that comes with streaming, the wireless nature of it is incredible. The only thing I wish they’d pushed a bit more is the FOV.

    I just wish it was a little bit more affordable. There are lots of things I would like to try out in VR (from a playing perspective but also in terms of development/experimentation) but I simply can’t justify the cost

    It’s definitely going in the right direction for you. Facebook like your data more than your money so they’ll keep subsidising the Quest line more and more, I’m sure. So long as you don’t mind the downsides…

    The main problem is that the software is always too expensive and very rarely goes for cheap because the audience isn’t big enough to justify it. I’m sure that will get better as more people adopt VR, though.

    I rock an Original Rift, I was tempted by later headsets but the increase in resolution just isn’t enough of an upgrade to make the purchase worthwhile.

    Are you much bothered by the wireless aspect? I have to say, the Quest being standalone and now so good with streaming from the PC is pretty much the biggest selling point for me.

    Oh man, that reminds me of my first VR ‘solution’ I tried at the start of lockdown. With barely any money to dedicate to it, I got a second hand Oculus Go and hooked it up to software that would emulate a Vive and stream to the headset. All very lovely, but the Go has no proper tracking so I then ended up getting a Kinect and using more software to get some really, really flakey head and hand tracking working. It was basically unusable but it was a lot of fun. And as a side effect I also had foot tracking, but that was also about as reliable as you’d expect.

    Yeah, I’m not proud to have fallen for Facebook’s strategy. I was pretty close to deleting my whole account and now they’ve got me locked in, the bastards.

    I’d be really curious to try properly lighthouse tracking. I’ve been absolutely amazed at how well the inside out tracking works on the Quest but I bet it’d be nice to remove those occasional blips you get.

    I’d love to try a high end headset at some point. As much as I love my Quest I’d love more FOV, especially, but I’d never swap what I have for anything that wasn’t a standalone device as well.

    I’ve been using Unity to develop little things for it, and it’s amazingly easy. I have Quest and PSVR builds just working almost straight away.

    I really do love the idea of it being fake but that kinda scuppers it. Unless Lister is just being a moron, which is possible.

    That line was written more for the burnt out middle aged version of Lister, so we can write it off as him being genuinely fooled by the fake window.

    Them having a small window in I-II is more reasonable when there were just 169 crew in a five-mile-long ship, nearly all cohabiting.

    I like a theory Danny mentioned to me a while ago that that little window is actually supposed to be fake and is just a cloth with holes cut in it in universe too.

    We never see it, but I’d suggest the implication from the BTE bunk set is that the window is literally the fourth wall.

    That seems loosely based on the book description of the bunk room, too, which described a little seating area down some steps and a big observation window where the fourth wall would be.

    Bloody hell, Babylon 5 gets satisfying in the middle. Especially catching up with the long-teased future echoes and being gifted a whole load more. If you’ve got your story all plotted out, what better way to show off than jumping all over the coherent timeline? I can’t remember shouting at the screen so much since Heaven Sent in 2015.

    This is what I remember standing out when I first watched it year ago. No other TV series before or since scratched that same itch of presenting this coherent longform story, it really is incredible at times.

    I was enjoying B5’s classic sci-fi allegories until the ‘pro-Earth’ anti-alien violence arc made it as escapist as watching This Is England. I don’t know how old-school sci-fi viewers/readers handled Cold War parables week after week. Good show, anyway.

    Also, I tried Babylon 5, can’t remember if I had the movie or not to start it off? I assume so I just torrented the lot in one go but … I really really struggled and stopped at around episode 5 or 6. For a show made in the era of TNG and DS9 etc, it really felt like it was made a decade earlier. Wanted to like it because I’d heard so much good stuff but couldn’t get past the production.

    If you have the time what with the millions of other shit there is to watch these days, I highly recommend to give B5 a chance beyond the first season. It doesn’t just get good, it’s gets fucking good.

    It’s free this time so why not give a go! (It’s also worth keeping in the back of your mind that it is a free game too when giving feedback). We do monetise it with adverts, but they are all optional as reward videos – we never force you to watch an advert throughout the game.

    We’re very responsive to feedback, so let us know your thoughts. We know that the Red Dwarf audience is very varied, so we can’t hit the mark for everyone – but we’ve aimed to include different modes in the game to cater for different types of players and it’s not linear either.

    Plus, I expect ALL of you on here to ace the quiz!

    As for the spelling of Ziggy – I know it’s an odd spelling, but it is correct in the game. We actually had it as ‘Bryceman’ at first, but after double checking the freeze frame on the picture he made in the Econium ship in the episode, it’s definitely ‘Briceman’.
