I kind of want Mechwarrior 5: Mercenaries…

…(Via Ars Technica) but I kind of want it on VR. The gear that you apparently need to play MechWarrior 5 as you should is arcane, and costly. Then again, so is both the Oculus Rift and the PlayStation VR rigs. My children, by the way, are starting to be of the opinion that we really should have a VR rig in the house. I don’t disagree with them, necessarily, but: when is this stuff going to start getting cheaper?

Anyway, this looks like it’d be a lot more intuitive in VR.

    Simulations *are* virtual reality.
    The pilot is using a joystick, just like the one you’re using.
    He’s pushing buttons, just like you’re doing.
    He’s getting sound through a headset, like you’re doing.
    He’s sitting down, like you are.
    He has a limited field of view, just like you.
    If you want to pay for it, you can even buy a chair with rumble packs under your butt.
    How is this not virtual reality?
