Hawken With a Virtual Reality Headset Sounds Like a Mech-Lovers Fantasy

Hawken looks good enough as it is. But the prospect of playing the game using a virtual reality headset seems too bananas to be true.

The Oculus Rift VR headset will be compatible with the upcoming multiplayer shooter, to the extent that not only will it work with the system, but Rift owners will get a feature where they can move their heads around inside the cockpit independent of the main mech viewpoint. So, yeah, just like you would in real life.

This is the type of "arcadeish" shooting game that would work amazing well in a giant motion cockpit. I know it would be expensive, but imagine a nice big room with like six of them as an attraction somewhere. Make sure the seats are well cushioned. Add in some decent air condition, and you have a mech game you can charge $10 a pop to play to help pay for the machinery. It'll take some time, but I bet it will get popular really fast. A man can dream...
