No issues at all, but it is not one for anyone without reasonable VR legs.

The worst I ever experienced was Dirt Rally with the camera locked to the car, had to go straight to bed and I could still feel it the next day. I think that might even get to me now.

Does it have a head tracking mode? Can you play that ok?

Yeah it has a normal mode and that's absolutely fine. The one I was using has head tracking but the camera is locked rigidly to a point in space that is fixed relative to the car. It feels very unnatural and it's completely unlike pilot mode in wipeout, partially because it's rally cars rather than floaty anti-gravity racers but mostly I think that both there and in the normal mode on Dirt Rally there's some damping at play.

I'd never heard of Red Matter before but I think it'll be the next game I play (after AC: Origins) because it sounds like exactly what I'm after in a VR game. Simple concept (escape room) immersively rendered:

The price is high of course but, when is it not with VR stuff?

Only ever bought bargains since getting mine. Good timing though I guess.

Same here. There are choice games I'd like to get like Tetris Effect, which are way out my price range at the moment, but I have a plenty big enough back catalogue to get by before they come down.

That said, I did miss out on cheap wipeout THREE times because the Android PlayStation app crapped out THREE times at checkout, when the omega collection was going for £11 or something.

Struggled last night getting the last two Robots in Rescue Mission.

Just read that you need another player to get them... :facepalm: >:(

My Physical copy was £13 from Argos in Jan.
Back up to £29.99 now though... sorry.

16.99 here though: https://www.gamingnerds.co.uk/video-gam ... XMQAvD_BwE

cheers, that's not bad at all. Unfortunately I just bought Sunless Seas on t'pc so can't afford any more games at the mo (even if it was only a fiver).

I have the Wipeout Demo waiting for me, so I'll be giving that a blast anyway to see if it gives an intestinal prolapse.

In the full game or the demo thing? I got all of them in the full game and I never played with anyone else.

Gave this a whirl last night. What a wonderful place to retreat to. Feels very Rez, which is unsurprising given its maker. Not sure three levels is enough to get the most out of it. Will definitely be picking this up (when it's sub £20)
