It's co-op, so one player is the captain, one tactical, one helm, one engineering, you use VR hand controllers to interact with those LCARS panels... and. You. Fly. The. Freaking. Ship.

(Really charming trailer, too, with some of the Star Trek cast playing the game, and looking genuinely excited not just I'm-being-paid-to-look-excited.)

I saw that on Reddit yesterday and, oh man, it looks ace.

Obviously, the local multiplayer is impractical for most though. I wonder what netplay would be like.

It's VR, by definition I don't care about local multiplayer :) I see no reason netplay won't work.

Just took delivery of a Vive at work yesterday :)

This will be very popular in our IT dept when it comes out!

Yeah, that looks fucking incredible. Not so sure about the cost to play it, though :)

Do the headsets have built-in microphones?

I'm not convinced "open fire" is going to be the answer to everything.

But only if you don't open fire fast enough.

We had a GTA game once, the two-on-two mode where each pair consists of a driver (in a 60s muscle car, racing the other driver) and a blocker (in a huge armoured truck, trying to stop the other driver and protect their own driver.) It was Grim... (driver) and Cras vs me (driver) and Curio. Grim... was completely irate, screaming at Cras, demanding he be in two places at once, I was laughing so hard I forgot how to breath, tears running down my face. It was great.

"YOU HAVE ONE FUCKING JOB. ONE. STOP GAYWOOD AND KEEP RILES AWAY FROM ME. YOU CAN'T EVEN DO THAT."

So I don't know if you can Twitch VR but maybe you can?

Also: we had the game hours before America, we could have been streaming sensations! Dammit!

It cost me £37. I can deal with that.

Oh shit, son. This suddenly became tempting, on the grounds that I have lots of PSVR people to play with and don't have to wait around for hours for the only other Rift owner in the UK to logon ;)
