  1. Just finished. I enjoyed it, for the most part, but I did think it dragged on quite a bit. I think I preferred the first game overall, especially when it came to story and pacing. It was technically amazing though, and the encounters allowed for some impressive freedom. On the flip side though, there were a few encounters where I felt forced to do things I really didn't want to as a player, which made me feel a bit detached. I'm not usually one for saying "they should have just made a movie", but there's definitely stuff in this that would have worked a lot better for me if I wasn't in control.
  2. I just watched that yesterday, coincidentally, and thought it was okay. I felt it was about transphobia rather than homophobia though, seeing as it dealt with gender rather than sexuality, and definitely didn't think it was trying to "both sides" anything. Yes the judge in the hearing claimed they were "helping" people with the treatment, but I thought that was a comment on real life people wanting to "cure" such things. I didn't get the impression that it was presenting that as a valid point of view. Riker's relationship with her was completely bonkers though, so there's that.
  3. You should definitely give Outer Wilds a go, and It's probably not what you think. This isn't a spoiler but I'll use spoiler tags anyway in case anyone reading wants to go in completely blind. I'm just talking about mechanics: It's incredible, and in no way a time trial game. It's more of an adventure game where the passage of time is an integral part of the puzzles and plot.
  4. A lot of the entries are out of date, but the point is that not everything works. VD is fantastic, but you still need a cable for the stuff it doesn't like. Personally I've had no issues with lag or image quality. The only issues I've had is where games don't launch at all, or don't launch in VR.
  5. I saw this a couple of days ago, and can only echo the praise. It's one of the best films I've seen in a while, and was funny, heartbreaking and life affirming all at the same time.
  6. There's a Google Doc which keeps track of what works, although it's not always up to date. Alyx does indeed work perfectly: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Sfwl2JNVlMykIzMc4We1KiUzAi4VLn3fajwfybc9osk/edit From personal experience, Rez Infinite's Oculus version wouldn't run at all, Hellblade's VR mode just displays the desktop mirror, stuff like that. The games that work work perfectly though.
  7. I'd say it's worth setting up VD even if you're definitely getting a cable, as it makes such a big difference being able to play what you can without cables. I'm just saying you'll still need the cable for some games.
  8. This depends on the game you want to play though. Some games flat out don't work over VD, and some have issues. Loads work really well though.
  9. That would probably go against the whole smart delivery thing. I imagine there will be boxes for "Xbox" games, with "Optimised for Series X" slapped underneath.
  10. A vampire Breek would would certainly be... something. But yes, that looks amazing.
  11. There's a section at the end of day 1 that I felt achieved a really clever bit of storytelling through game design that I wouldn't have expected to come from Naughty Dog: I've been impressed with the story throughout though. It may not make much in the way of clever use of the medium, spoiler aside, but it does what it does very well.
  12. I'm on a 4KTV with a Pro and I've not found it distracting at all. It's only because of this thread that I noticed it was there.
  13. Ah, I didn't realise that. You're right, although I seem to still have an Oculus friends list with a single occupant, which must have been from the CV1 days.
  14. You don't need a Facebook account for Oculus stuff. It's an option, but you can just set up a regular Oculus account instead.
  15. As a counterpoint, while I wouldn't exactly call it comfortable I don't have any issues with the headset moving around. I don't have a particularly large head though. The only add on I use is a cheap strap thing from Amazon, and I can happily use it for over an hour at a time.
