I wonder, could Oculus Rift be hacked to work with MCVR or vice versa?

Interesting thought actually! I am sure this would be possible to do with emulation or something.

That would be great, Oculus Rift really looks nice, I'll wait to read reviews of it when released but I think I will end up buying it.
Don't be surprised, my broken English is legendary!

I have a friend that spent a ton of money on building some awesome new PC rig (he says about $6000) and he also bought an OR dev kit. He's been running arcade emulation on it so perhaps when I drop by I will have to try it out and see what happens.

Damn, that has to be some machine if it cost him $6000 to put it together.

...also just realised that he missed the Atari ST version out of this video...

Wow, that's quite good! I never played this on my ST (not sure how I missed it). Gonna have to get a copy. I'm guessing the two missile bases are left and right mouse button presses.

The Jaguar "classic" version looks sweet as well - not sure about the 3D version though. Looks tough to play.

Yep, two mouse buttons.

The Jag version is very easy to play actually, I think you would be surprised.

If only I'd held onto my Jag. Hmm.. maybe it's time to pick up another..

I still have a controller, as I used to use that for certain STE and Falcon030 games.

IMO it's the best game on the Jaguar and worth buying the system for, especially if you are a Missile Command fan.

The Jaguar version is excellent!  I'm sure you'd enjoy it Nurmix.

I like the look of that new version.  Nice modernization of the original.

Loved Missile Command in the arcade. The only version I have played that is as good is playing it via MAME with a mouse and 3 buttons on the keyboard.

2600 version is admirable though.

I quite like the look of the Jaguar version - pity it doesn't have the little mushroom clouds the 2600 version has when the cities are hit.

That looks pretty cool.  I like the pseudo 3D they did with the buildings.
