  1. Recommend installing Asgard wrath on an SSD if you have the space. I had very long loading times on my HDD and ended up buying another SSD for this ... Difference is night and day
  2. I agree entirely. I'm about 16 hours into the game now. I'm having such a good time exploring with no particular structure. I've been happy to leave the story missions untouched just now (only done 2 of them). My fun has been building my class - medic - finally reached level 10 this evening. I love the pattern of small mini goals it gives you ... plus, it helps wrap a simple purpose to my random exploration; shoot 3 enemies in 5 seconds with SMG, shoot 3 drones, and so on. I've enjoyed that it 'forces' me to try all the gun types (In over 150+hours with Windlands I only ever used ASR and sniper rifle) so it's really opened up the game for me. The map also feels huge. I've spent a couple of days exploring two of the areas in more detail. Today I just decided to drive from one end of the island to the other. Again, no significant purpose, except to open up some bivouac points so I can fast travel at a later point. Good mix of zones/areas especially with the graphical uplift compared to Wildlands.
  3. I agree 100% with @mechamonkey. I've only played this on advanced (1 less than the hardest mode, "extreme") in exploration mode etc and I agree this is the only way to play. The world isn't empty ... it's full of people who want to kill me. On foot, the action never stops. Big step up in the AI in that mode too. Random example - Was sniping a base downhill from miles away , in Wildlands they would have just stood there and let me do it. I fluked a couple of 420m+ kills. The buggers sent in the choppers and killed me in a minute. Other example is the flanking. The AI keeps catching me from the side. I'm having to think things through now and constantly re-evaluate my situation and approach. It's much more advanced than Wildlands. I love that this game captures the chaos hidden in my not so perfect planning... ie It's all going fine until it isn't ... Advanced is hard. It's extremely unforgiving (to me anyway) and it punishes me constantly. I'm absolutely loving it and can't wait to go back for some more.
  4. Thanks for letting me know @Bushtopher. (Sorry for taking so long to reply ... Didn't see the notification for some reason - my bad) I'm going to wait and see what (if any) offers/bundles there are at Christmas.
  5. Perfect. I'll stick with the 64GB version. Cheers
  6. I'm going to buy a Quest soon. Now that everyone has had theirs for a while ... did you find 64GB enough or is it worth the 100 quid for the 128GB model? I've already got a rift so the quest is more for casual/party use. For parties, what is the best way to share the screen ... the Ultra Chromecast thingy?
  7. I bought this for my rift last Xmas. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B073357KXC/ref=asc_df_B073357KXC57110714/?tag=googshopuk-21&creative=22146&creativeASIN=B073357KXC&linkCode=df0&hvadid=218715807545&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=14583650011805005485&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1007366&hvtargid=pla-430166508918 Does the trick. The original place to go for them is vrcover.com if I remember correctly they were the first to offer covers and so may have the larger range. Mine are good enough though. Had them for 6 months now.
  8. I don't know if it's the same but I bought one of these for my rift cv1 and im pretty happy with it. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B073357KXC/ref=asc_df_B073357KXC57110714/?tag=googshopuk-21&creative=22146&creativeASIN=B073357KXC&linkCode=df0&hvadid=218715807545&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=14583650011805005485&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1007366&hvtargid=pla-430166508918 Easy to put on. It did pop off occasionally for the first couple of weeks but it sorts itself out over time and hasn't popped off in ages. My cv1 foam was coming off and glueing wasn't working anymore. It's good and it's comfortable and does the job for me.
  9. Have you looked into Space Pirate Trainer? I really like Mission ISS not only is it free but its interesting to float around the space station. And Google Earth is always a party pleaser if you don't already have it - just make sure all the VR comfort stuff is on as I still find it hard to change scale without my stomach turning a bit. My other recommendation if you haven't already is Lone Echo - maybe more for yourself than a party night. It just feels super immersive when you play standing.

    Gaming Myths

    Never used a joystick ever on the old 48k just didn't feel right. QAOP and M most times although I did prefer 67890 for certain games though, on reflection, I've no idea why. Do remember having a screwdriver and constantly mucking about with the tape head.

    Gaming Myths

    Someone opening your bedroom door whilst a game was loading causing an R Tape loading error, 0:1 You spend ages getting the volume control just right, sitting deadly still and silent allowing sufficient tape loading karma to build up in the room ... then someone opens your door
  12. One of the articles posted suggests that the game is a prequel. I would be happy with that. More HL1.5 than HL3.
  13. I could see the quest being a huge Xmas hit next year. Just the thing needed whilst we are in the middle of a console cycle. Rec room, windland 2, superhot etc. There is quite a lot there for little Johnny (or little Jane) to pick and play on Xmas day. It looks like a solid way to build up a critical mass for vr.
