Not conducive for overweight gamers such as myself. Is there an auto-run button?

I'm sure you could do that, or even a mode where walking on the treadmill while holding down a button will cause you to run in the game so you aren't gassed after 15 minutes. It's just amazing how small scale and cheap these things are getting.

It's funny how in old sci-fi movies the future was always full of modders who make their own kick-ass VR rigs and stuff and I always remember thinking "that's bullshit. In the future it'll all be store-bought on account of how complex the technology is." I was totally wrong in a sense because now you have individuals and small firms who put store-bought elements together in creative ways to make new kinds of hardware rigs. Really cool stuff.

Even a fit person couldn't hold the pace for hours on end.

Regardless, it's pretty awesome.

I'd be more afraid of getting so into it that I'd end up jumping and breaking it and/or myself.

Make sure your doors are locked.

I'd feel less humiliated if someone walked in on me jerking off. That kid looks ridiculous.

Fuck that.

I'd spill my drink.
not to mention i wouldn't be able to chain smoke and tell 12 year olds i fucked there mother with out becoming winded.

also i would be better if everytime he re-spawned it would send a tazer blast through his body, then maybe he wouldn't get killed so fast.
