Forza Horizon 3. Just before Christmas, I caved and bought an Xbox to play Forza Motorsport 7. Curiosity got the better of me, and, in addition to Forza Motorsport 7, I ended up with a copy of Forza Horizon 3.
Black Mirror. (Warning: possible spoilers ahead.) It looks like they had a lot of fun with USS Callister and it was just as enjoyable to watch. The dark twists are just what you’d expect from the Black Mirror Series, and I’m a fan of this sinister view of technology. Now, I’m not sure how exactly one synthesises an entire human being, complete with memories, from a DNA swab. Perhaps I missed that part of the explanation. However, despite this minor foible, it was a fantastic start to season 4.
On a related note, I tried out a bit of Minecraft VR. The square pigs looked pretty realistic. Not a bad experience, now that they have the motion sickness foibles worked out. It's all about the controls, apparently. Could do with some de-fogging technology for the headset, though.
Here's to a
foibleulous fabulous new year.
