  1. I was just thinking about this one whilst reading this thread, don't know why but this really got me when it came on the TV one day, my son wasn't interested in the slightest but I was sitting engrossed whilst fighting back a tear! Duggie is without a doubt the best for me. It's definitely geared towards adults, there's even one based on apocalypse now references when they go to take mail to the giant panda down a river! The space one also really got me, it has an amazing sequence of them flying through the solar system with an awesome voiceover and music, with the usual humour tha
  2. Yeah, I've ended up selling mine on again as it basically was sat unused. I think I maybe played about 4-5 hours of games on it since November. VR was incredible on it but I've just got too many other things going on to really feel like I was getting my moneys worth from it.
  3. How old is the PSU? The power output does degrade over time but you should be fine on a 3070, that's what I have with a 5600x and a 650W PSU and it hasn't missed a beat. From what I've seen the 3080 is a bit more demanding so you may run into some stability issues there.
  4. Is it any good? The reviews I've seen haven't been overly favourable, I love WW2 games so I was quite looking forward to trying this but now I'm in two minds.
  5. I reckon it's going to be 6 months before there is decent availability. By the time new material gets through the fab etc it takes quite a bit of time to hit the shelves.
  6. Even if you don't have a huge amount of room then most games can be played whilst standing stationary anyway. It takes a bit of the immersion away but still works perfectly well. I've got a 3m + 5m extension for using with link and it works great, so that's also an option if the wireless desktop route doesn't work for you.
  7. Played Vader immortal part 2 tonight and it really brought home the difference between the original quest OLED panels and the quest 2's LCD, it's super dark and looked really washed out and gray which is a bit disappointing. Still, HL Alyx in 90Hz and full res link looks amazing! Got Star wars squadrons in the Origin sale so looking forward to trying that. Was all set to get tales from galaxies edge as well but the mixed reviews have put me off a bit.
  8. Ah, that could be true, the main list didn't show any prices for me so the £590 was an MSI one I think that the page actually loaded when clicked.
  9. Yeah thats the one. I guess it's a premium over the RRP, but only the 3070FE is going for that. The 3rd party ones are all £500+ so it's not a massive difference. Not watched any of the review videos yet so haven't seen the real world comparisons yet, but I've committed to the 3070 now anyway! Will be interesting to see how it all plays out over the next year or so in terms of driver updates and optimisations.
  10. Had a speculative look at launch time and Scan appeared to have a few, starting at £590 for the 6800. Didn't seem to be a 'add to basket' though then they were gone again after a few minutes. Happy with my 3070 purchase anyway.
  11. You can up the resolution, I tried this last night and it definitely felt like it made a big difference! Started playing through HL Alyx again and it was crystal clear.
  12. Is anyone playing this with a Quest 2 and link? I really want to get it but seems like there may be some issues with VR?
  13. My zotac 3070 OC arrived today, can't believe I got one just by pure luck of checking ebuyer at the right time. Got it installed and fired up HL Alyx with my Quest 2 and link, using the Dev tool to enable the higher resolution and 1.2x sampling and it looks incredible! Running with everything on ultra and it didn't appear to skip a beat! So happy and will make a play through definitely worthwhile!
