Brother bought me a oculus rift.
« on: July 30, 2017, 02:53:22 AM »
Yep, he asked me if i wanted a ps4, i said i'd rather a oculus rift (joking) and he bought me one. I'm still waiting on it since they seem to be in high demand atm. They have a deal on to get the Oculus and Controllers together pretty cheap with free shipping.

When i get it i'll keep u guys updated. It may take awhile.  :shame:

Haha. Yeah. I'm curious to see how you like it. I was reading that Facebook dropped the price because people weren't buying it. Not surprising considering the price and the lack of support right now. I also haven't heard much about anything in the works from Sony in terms of games either. Kind of a shame because I really want to buy a VR headset but some AAA titles need to come out for it. I think VR is the next big advancement in gaming but adoption seems to be the trouble right now.

He couldn't wait and cancelled the order. Got a Vive instead, it's pretty cool but is limited by decent games. Waiting for Fallout VR to come out to give it a good go. Right now I've mostly been playing demos. Don't wanna shell out $$ for games unless they're worth it.

Fallout would be an amazing game to use VR for. Actually, VR can revolutionize any open world game, as long as adoption rates go up and they do a good job on it.

Tried a few games, Batman VR (more of a demo really) is awesome and freaky at points. Front Defense is awesome but requires at least 2 x 2meter space. 

Gorn is another great game but again requires a lot of space. I've got a 3m x 2m space and still find myself hitting stuff with the controllers.

Drop dead i have on GearVR but thought i'd try it on the Vive. It's pretty much the same game except better graphics and the ability to use the weapons like real guns ie not looking where to shot but aiming with the guns themselves.

Project Cars although a good game, is terrible on this. Low res graphics make it almost painful to play. It looks like Daytona on the Saturn and you can't change the res. WTF!

Will let u know more as i get my grubby dirty little hands on more titles.

Well i've been playing it off and on for awhile now. Not much more to report, tried Skyrim with  a program called VorpX.  Interesting concept but fails. Without controller support, using head tracking to aim is just basically outright shit. Will be getting fallout VR when it's released so that'll be interesting, gotta wait for skyrimVR though.

Haven't tried to many new games, VR atm suffers from mobile style gameplay. Most games are very basic and limited in what you can even do. I'm TIRED of seeing zombie VR games. Move on already developers, WTF! Zombie games in general are just overdone at this point.

ohh and hi.

So basically, you experience with Skyrim would have been comparable to using the Power Glove ;)

That's a shame. Also the reason I'm not investing in VR right now. The problem is, and it's my critique of the industry right now, is they are afraid to take chances. Just grab a game by the balls and just run with it. Not surprised by you reporting a lot of zombie games. They know it's a safe bet for people to buy. How about taking a chance with a flight sim game? Or a war game? Or a racing game? VR has so much potential but it seems like it's getting bottlenecked by developers lack of taking chances.
