I have been away from OrbusVR for a very long time (I was serving my country), I do not think I’ll be able to play it anymore. I made a post some time ago about VR and how 3D objects are hard to accomplish, that being said, accuracy with no forgiveness or handicap for someone who is handicap[ed has simply been what will continue to personally keep me away. Especially until my own injuries heal if i have full mobility at all again.
I have played MMOs for many years, not only is there a market for accessibility players but it will also enhance play for those of us that dont have tons of time to play that even if we did could not train to ever reach our goals.
Ill admit im a bit biased since i have a handicap even though I would love to play this game, I cannot simply because I shakes entirely too much to accomplish much if anything. This is sad because I do not have this problem in other VR games that have free movement locomotion
My biggest concern now is that as we players age things happen,in my case it was an injury, and I dont see this ever getting addressed by the devs.
Good players who are loyal to this game, could develop not just injuries, but like parkinson’s disease and because of the way the mechanics are now (with no intention of ever changing them for god only knows what reasons), will simply be forgotten… and have to find another game. To me this is not a good trade for time.
I played an MMO loyally for 17 years. Honestly if i had to put a price tag on the amount of money for expansions and subscriptions that was over a million dollar investment not including the cost of time… The grind was never worth what I had invested and the payoff never came in terms of the most valuable commodity known to man “time well spent”. Not even the fame was a great trade and i reached the top of the top in the game i played… Server first killers world wide server first killers and eventually the best build in the game worldwide.
I think when Orbus realizes that due diligence of a player is not about expertise of a gimmick, and that the real gem is in how well the game develops over time into rich content quests, story, and lore as well as fighting mechanics for the laymen to achieve… Ill not only bring my very now handicapped self back into the world, ill invite my whole very PC handicapped loving family and friends as well.
This game had such great potential but i find it lacks common decency towards the handicapped players of this world. I was hoping by now orbus would see the error of this and fix it so all players could experience this unique game. only to find in my absence it got worse with time consumption… no one except people who dont have jobs and live with their parents have this kind of time… no wife in the world is going to let a man play a game this long, and i doubt husbands will either. I quit playing ARK survival evolved simply because it was worse than having a job raising all the Dinos… (we had to take turns getting up at 2am to feed babies or theyd die on us)
I will wait a little longer in hopes that while VR itself is dying more and more each day (the cost is simply too high for most players to sustain a market which is more of an experience that is better suited for education and medicine than gaming)… that a potentially great game like orbus can evolve into a better state, one that players of all abilities can enjoy.
Games sell because they are fun, nothing about a grind other than bragging rights can occur, and I have yet to see any grind that is any fun. End game is simply that it is the End of the game… it too gets boring old and fast. This is why MMOs are dying.
