The three Oculus Rift games at E3 are all amazing photo
The three Oculus Rift games at E3 are all amazing
by Brett Makedonski

I've had a chance to check out quite a few games on Oculus Rift. From Japanese indie projects at BitSummit to the latest build of EVE Valkyrie, I've gotten a good look at the progress of developing virtual reality games from both large and tiny teams. Having seen the evolution of the technology, it's easy to recognize that it's getting significantly better, and, it's all happening very quickly.

Meeting with Oculus VR at E3, I had the opportunity to demo three titles I hadn't seen yet -- Superhot, Lucky's Tale, and Alien: Isolation. All were vastly different from one another, but each was damn impressive.

ZeniMax sues Oculus VR for misappropriating trade secrets photo
ZeniMax sues Oculus VR for misappropriating trade secrets
by Jordan Devore

The ZeniMax vs. Oculus VR situation has escalated following comments from both sides about how intellectual property and key technology driving the Oculus Rift virtual-reality headset may or may not have been worked on while John Carmack was still at ZeniMax-owned id Software prior to his departure to work at Oculus full time as chief technology officer.

Today, ZeniMax and id filed a suit against Oculus VR and founder Palmer Luckey for "illegally misappropriating ZeniMax trade secrets relating to virtual reality technology, and infringing ZeniMax copyrights and trademarks. ZeniMax is also asserting claims for breach of contract, unjust enrichment, and unfair competition against the defendants."

Had a feeling this was about to get messy after the recent back-and-forth. According to ZeniMax, "All efforts by ZeniMax to resolve this matter amicably have been unsuccessful." Oculus VR hasn't responded yet, but I'm expecting more comments in line with its prior statements.
