  • What are you talking about?
  • That made me lol 😂
  • I guess now that they're getting a new '3d' camera, that they'll be dropping VR support?
  • Hope not? IIRC, Luckys Tale is the only 2D/VR game in the Store and the only WMR VR game in Game Pass PC. Which proves thst they can put VR games there. We'll see what they do with Flight Simulator
  • What on earth is the first comment blathering on about? Despite its like warm reception, I actually enjoyed it and it was surprisingly tricky in parts. Looking forward to the New version.
  • I loved MechWarrior 2 and Mercenaries.
