If ind the 2d version a bit hard due to difficulties figuring out how distant the peple are and therefore where to shoot. For obvious reasons, this is not a problem in vr, thanfully.
Swings and roundabouts though - throwing things accurately in vr is... tricky.

I got one of these a couple of days ago and whilst I'm really impressed I tried playing Dirt Rally last night. OMFG I had to rip off the headset after about half a stage and immediately retire to bed. It powerfully fucked me up. I guess it'll just take time to get used to it. What are some good games that are the least vom-inducing?

I've personally found that anything that takes control of movement away from the user causes nausea. Super hot VR was superb. Similarly Gorn, but these were both on Dave's Vive.

Cool, be checking those out later.

Personally I'm quite excited for Ultrawings:



I'd been unreasonably hoping that they might do something like Sky Odyssey for PSVR but this will have to do, it has a bit of a Pilot Wings vibe.

Definitely got my sea legs with the VR thing, at least nothing now seems to make me ill like it did at first.

Played this months freebies last night too, Until Dawn is very straightforward and lots of fun. Bound I just found to be irritating. I think it's mostly the way the character prances around like a tit everywhere, always walks with her arms out like she's doing fucking ballet practice. I get that it's sort of the point and it's meant to be beautiful and stuff, but it's not, it's just stupid and annoying :(

I played the demo and adored it. I wasn't interested in it at all until it popped up as a VR demo and then it went firmly onto The List because it looked so incredible. I'm still not convinced it'll hold my attention in terms of gameplay because the demo gives very little away in that regard, but as a VR spectacle it's beautiful and I'm absolutely all over that shit.

Also VR related: play GNOG as it's glorious. Further write up once I've actually completed it.

It’s a spectacle on just a normal 2D telly. The backgrounds looks amazing as they bubble and pulse.

I played a bit yesterday and... got bored prancing about like a tit with no challenge. My interest in walking simulators and the like (this being the latter I imagine) has grown thin in recent times. I can appreciate something pretty but for a full length game or even something that you have to play for a few hours I’m going to need more of a challenge than pushing forward.

Apparently it's only a couple of hours long anyway and I suspect I have more tolerance than you for this sort of thing so I'm hopeful I'll enjoy it for it's entire length.

Latest adventures in "games that would be meh in 2d are really cool in 3d": Farpoint, which is £55 with the Aim Controller now. I'm up to the first boss, a giant spider the size of a house. And I really do mean "the size of a house" because VR really makes you feel scale in a way that 2d gaming cannot.

Really like the Aim Controller, too. Farpoint is a moderately proper FPS and the Aim Controller has proper FPS controls -- I've pulled off circle strafing in it.

Are you clicky or smooth? I'm "small clicky".

Big Clicky now, with a speed of 8 or so, for faster turns. Smooth made me feel funny, although I didn't try it for very long so perhaps I could adjust.

Yeah, it made me feel funny too. After playing co-op with you small clicky was starting to make me feel weird, but that's probably because I was turning all the time as SHIT BE HECTIC.

Yeah, returning to the early main game felt really staid and controlled after those levels we played! I'm well up for playing more BTW.

I heard awesome things about Farpoint with it's controller but there's a mental hurdle there in buying a bit of plastic that might well only get used for a single game.

Arizona Sunshine and Doom VFR both support it and boom, that was enough for me. (I have low thresholds for tat mind.)

Especially as Arizona Sunshine has four player support in horde mode. Two player co-op Farpoint with Grim... was really cool. It's that damnable "everything is 500% more engaging in VR" factor at work.

Also 500% more engaging in co-op. And they're multiplicative factors.

Nah it was logistical issues I think. I stepped away and didn't get the invites. Anyway it was so long ago I can't remember.

Imagine spending a ludicrous amount of money on a game and then no cunt will play it with you.
