I didn't realise that about Doom, that might actually help it be even vaguely playable as I'm currently far beyond sceptical that they'll be able to translate it to vr.

Normally translates across the pond, though.

Finally completed SuperHot VR (I completed it in 2d a while back.) The final few levels are pretty punishing. What a dazzlingly amazing game though. Probably my favourite VR game yet.

I had a brief go on Dave's Vive. I agree. Probably my favourite VR game so far

Played another session of Farpoint co-op with Grim... this weekend.

Farpoint may be my canonical "pretty meh game transformed into greatness by VR." It would be dull dull dull in 2d: it has only a handful of enemies and guns, it appears to have only two environments (reddish-brown rocky sand, and brownish-red sandy rocks), and it's too bloody difficult (on Easy, Grim... and I have reached the end of the small co-op missions only twice. We've died 20+ times. And I'm thoroughly stuck on the first boss in the single player.)

And yet with the Aim Controller and PSVR, it's pretty magical, and then it's even better in co-op (of course.) I totally lost track of time when we were playing -- I was astonished when Grim... said it had been almost two hours, and only then noticed my aching back because I'd been holding myself tense for most of that time. It's a proper shooter, once you turn on the advance controls: you can do full FPS movement on top of the lightgun-like Aim controller for actually firing. I was pulling off circle strafing. No nausea for me, although I do have flick-scrolling instead of smooth turning.

Oh, and the best bit: the guns all have holographic sights but the VR environment projects them in such a way as you have to close one eye to see down them...! The second best bit: you swap weapons (you can only carry two) by moving the gun up to your shoulder and back again, miming out drawing a rifle from an over-shoulder back holster. These little visceral touches are amazing.

Has a good shotgun, too. Pretty meaty. I'd rate it 3.5 Dooms out of 5.

I'm normally fine with the nausea but at some point my gun's calibration went a bit screwy meaning it was pointing about 20 degrees to the left all the time, even though my hands (and eyes) disagreed. In single player it doesn't matter because you pause and sort it out, but we were on the final area of multiplayer so we couldn't pause and I was fucked if I was giving up.

FUCKING VOM CITY

Is that a common thing with PSVR? Sounds more like what you got with the Wii that anything vaguely modern.

It's never happened to me before, but it think it happened to Gaywood.

I've had drift a few times in Farpoint, same as Grim... describes but not as bad. I have a hunch it happens when the camera loses sight of the controller and you also do fast movements; you get some dead reckoning errors it can't recover from without you doing a recalibration step. You can't pause the multiplayer game so it's a bit of an issue.

An online multiplayer VR thing called Rec Room, that's been out on the Vive for a while now, has just been released for free on the PS4:

https://blog.us.playstation.com/2017/11 ... es-nov-21/

Not really my type of thing because, y'know, other people, but it seems to have been very well received and apparently the paintball is especially good fun. You can create private instances of each of the activities so if there are enough Beex VR folks you wouldn't even need to deal with randos. I'm kind of intrigued by the 'quests' which are "challenging co-op adventures where up to four players must defeat a series of monsters, puzzles, and other challenges as a team".

Cross-platform? Not that it matters. I'll spend £40 on it and then be roundly ignored

Looks pretty sweet. They definitely seem to be pushing the PSVR, loads of stuff coming out.

I didn't think it was necessarily doing all that well as a platform but a mate of mine in work has been trying to buy one for the last couple of days and they're selling out everywhere constantly. I realise there's been a price drop and Christmas is approaching but that's still surprising me.

From my point of view I always enjoy my time spent with it but I've got to admit that it's a bit of a thought to strap the headset on instead of just picking up a controller. This is almost entirely because to wear the thing I need to keep my contact lenses in rather than, as I prefer to do, take them out and wear my glasses in the evening when I'm at home. I don't notice it so much when I'm actually playing games but an evening in VR ends with my eyes being kind of irritated which puts me off playing VR stuff more than one day in a row.

I admit I haven't tried it but I'd be too worried to in case I scratched the headset lenses, especially with the jam jar bottoms I laughably call my specs.

Did you ever get Star Trek to work, by the way?

Fair point. My glasses are quite svelte.
