Oculus Quest - (Usernames in first post)

Recommended Posts

My first purchase: Sairento. Really enjoying it but I had a hazy feeling that something was missing. The combat is great and once you get used to the teleport movement it gives you a superb feeling of empowerment. I like how you can pull a katana from your back and a weapon from your side and combo enemies with some badass flips and wall runs. Very satisfying.

 

It's the mission structure that's weak. A series of challenges for rewards rather than any kind of narrative.

 

Then I discover it's also out on PSVR with a full campaign. What's going on? Sure, it's less expensive on Quest but I'd rather pay more and get the full experience.

 

Surely it's not a processing/memory thing? The game is hardly Skyrim.

Just noticed tonight that my right lens has scratched :(

 

I noticed an area on my glasses was scratched (very small circle) but thought nothing of it, looks like my glasses lens has been rubbing against the quest lens during beat sabre.

 

Google suggests these things aren't replaceble too, which seems increadibly stupid!

Release day for new games and experiences is every Thursday. They seem to be releasing 2 every week from what I can tell. As with all the VR platforms there is very little info about what is upcoming and when though.

So far the release schedule has been great I think, tons of great content already with plenty coming every week or two, most of which I find very reasonably priced (but then again I still see VR like having an arcade from t he future in your living room so it always seems such a bargain to me).

 

Sairento has suddenly become my game of choice. Didn't get it when it was released, but have seen the devs have updated it a couple of times already and seem very dedicated so decided to give it a try. It takes an hour or so to get into it, but once you do its just so much fun (provided you have the VR legs to handle it).Going into slow motion after doing a wall run while shooting crazy ninja things in the head is just so satisfying. Apparently they are working on multiplayer as a free update and all for just 16.99 (canadian dollars so I guess around 11 quid on the UK store?).

 

Anyway, there isn't a story mode and it's cut down and cheaper than the PSVR / PC counterpart, but it's just glorious fun with the added freedom of no fucking cables getting in the way. Anyway, now sits next to Beat Saber and Racket NX as my current top 3. I am enjoying dipping into Half Life VR every now and again though...just for a nostalgia kick.

You install LambdaVR through Sidequest snd then just need to copy over a Half Life game folder from Steam and that's about it. You can use HD textures  which makes it pretty sharp. The train ride at the start is a bit of a barf fest (it feels like it moves SO FAST when you are in it in VR), but played the first hour or so I guess and its very playable and therefore awesome in small doses it seems and great to see Half Life again from a different perspective after all these years.

Putting more and more time into Sariento and finding the core mechanic and the game play just SO MUCH FUN. Especially once I realised you can do advanced moves such as flipping upside down etc. The feeling of pulling off multiple head shots while upside down in slo mo before sliding into a plasma sword uppercut is just BRILLIANT.

 

Now my goto game for Quest and some of the most fun I've had in VR (including when I owned a CV1). Love it and can't wait for the DLC. I really can't believe I have some crazy arena ninja future sport in my lounge for the price of a couple of pints.

Bought my quest into my work and used part of the school hall with boundary turned off. Very effective ! Still if I could have used the entire hall it would be even better , might try before the end of summer.

 

Played exorcist for a bit. Being about to walk around the area without having to fake walk is awesome. Still wasnt perfect but very cool.

 

Was quite a freaky experience with the eerie noises and jump scares.

Been playing some Half Life today, it's mighty impressive. The controls take a bit of getting used to (especially as the orientation of your left hand affects the direction of the control sticks). However the thing is that it works. Played about 20  mins and basically just got the pistol. It doesn't have positional audio which can be a bit weird when people are talking but then this is just a mod so I can forgive that. What is impressive is that even though it's graphically data you still really get that sense of presence. The facility does feel massive and even when you are on the train ride at the beginning you do feel that you are in the train carriage and not just in your room at home.

Definitley Moss, although it's not a game that really shows off the Quest abilities, it's just a wonderful game.

 

Beat Saber and Superhot are absolute must haves too and will be fine as they don't have any motion that is external to what you are doing. Beat Saber is the game that I show to anyone who has never used VR before and it has never been an issue.

Would second Beat Saber which is an absolute joy....as is Superhot. Space Pirate Trainer and Racket Fury do what they do very well and are excellent value (SPT is limited in scope but is just great fun and almost certainly won't induce any sickness!). Racket NX is fantastic (especially multi player) and I Expect You to Die is a good seated experience that again should be comfortable for people new to the Quest.

 

Of course, my favourite of the moment is Sairento...but you need VR legs for that one.

 

Oh, and a few interesting looking releases tomorrow (Red Matter if you like puzzlers and want something very pretty)
