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

I got it to work fine, yeah. Played with Marlon Rando and his mates. Was fun but would be better with a Grim…ordering me around

Was Marlon on a PS4, though?

The picture really only exists to demonstrate to doubters that my otherwise hilariously grumpy asshole of a cat is capable of affection.

They don't look to bad from that angle but they're really thick, hence my VR worries. I mean my eyesight is fucking terrible (-7.5 If that means anything to anyone) but the real issue here is that I didn't pay for thinned lenses because I'm only ever wearing them in the house so they're THICC.

While browsing the Steam store I noticed an announcement of an update to "I Expect You To Die" which adds a new level; something that's also been rolled out to PSVR:

https://blog.us.playstation.com/2017/09 ... new-level/

It's pretty old news actually but I never noticed at the time somehow.

Picked up Farpoint with the gun for this fairly cheap from Game. It's great, the effect in the game is marvellous and it's just a really nicely designed thing. I hope lots more stuff comes along that makes use of this accessory.

I rattled through the new IEYTD level last night and it was awesome. Arguably slightly easier than the previous levels but some really nice touches.

We did indeed figure out private games, BTW.

Is it all multi player stuff or is there anything to do on your own? I think I saw pinball mentioned somewhere.

Nothing we saw would work solo, but as I say, there's a lot we didn't see. However... The Steam reviews all say the community is lovely and everyone I (briefly) interacted with seemed nice. The first time I appeared in a public lobby, people were waving to me and high-fiving me! I'd be open to trying it with randos.

Also it has cross platform play so if we can get it working you can join in with us.

I imagine it'll be pretty easy to get PlayStation to PlayStation functionality working. ;)

Played a lot of Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes last night, which was a lot of fun, but also the Rogue One VR mission for Battlefront, which was the best thing ever. Pew Pew.

If I never hear that phrase ever again for as long as I live then I'll never want to murder that people that say it; and I feel like that's good for everyone.

I didn't get as much chance to mess around this as I hoped but it compares very favourably to the Gear VR. The lead is annoying and with two Jack Russels in the house the chances of cable disaster are high but that's the only downside vs the GearVR that I can think of.

The biggest difference I am finding is a much greater sense of immersion, the wireless controller appearing in front of me and small touches like moving my head forwards bringing things closer to me. Some time on Arkham VR was pretty astonishing but now I really want to try it with Move controllers. One for Santa methinks.
