Welcome back! :D Sorry that you have to re-register! :cry:

We've decided to go with a simple phpBB forum for the sake of ease of communication between the community members.
Many of us are busy with day-to-day real life issues and I felt that it was important we stay connected to some degree.

2 admin related issues I wanted to point out:

  1. If you don't like the Toxin green colour, there is an option for a "dark blue" (It's available in the User Control Panel. Follow the link: http://toxingamers.com/ucp.php?i=179
  2. If you are a part of the Toxin community/clan, you can request to be added to the user group so as to have more rights and access to the private forums

Expensive! But if you have the gear to run it, then it might be a worthwhile investment. Definitely has some wow factor.

Not me. But I have been watching the preview reports. All very favorable, some like the Steam VR (Vive) better. They say they are fast enough so you can turn you head without getting sick. We'll see.

I will definitely get one eventually. I would need a new video card if I got one now. I might wait until I get my next system, and the second generation. Or, as with most of my hardware purchases, a must-have game will eventually make me get one.

Hahaha, yeah I need a new video card too, but got other RL things that are a bit more important to save up for at this point in life :D

It will be interesting to see what pricepoint they pick, they do have the same advantage Sony had over Microsoft with the current gen of consoles, by announcing second they could potentially undercut it by a good amount.
