  1. Really feel the Quest is in its stride with some amazing games at the moment..now that I've managed to rip myself away from Tetris Effect at last I've been loving "In Death: Unchained" and also "Descent Alps" (on Sidequest). In Death just feels lots of fun to play and is perfectly moreish.....and Descent Alps is all kinds of skiing fun, really nails the sensation of skiing at times and has a ton of potential, and is free.
  2. Grrrrr. This looks lovely. Purchased and ready to go. If for the love of god just one day I’d love a game that allows local and online play together. You know like there might be two of us In the same house who would like to play with someone in a different house. If everyone who plays online is sitting in a room by themselves. It’s annoying because it must be thought about surely but ignored because I guess they just think each individual should have their own console. Anyway, looking forward to playing it but I know we’d get so much more use out of it if me and the Mrs could play together
  3. Have to say I’m continuing my love affair with the Quest. So much so that I still haven’t bothered organizing for my monster PC to be shipped over from the UK( with huge Steam VR and Rift collection) so that I can try Link. Maybe I will do that for a Christmas present. But with the time I have to play I’m finding the collection so satisfying. Recenty, The Under Presents is great, trippy and encountering live actors is a major head fuck. Pistol Whip is so much fun although I have a lot of work to do to get good at it. And I’m really enjoying Espire 1 even though it’s buggy central
  4. Episode 2 story is very underwhelming and the graphics seemed glitchy to me (weird shadows etc). Was all set to refund it but then had a quick blast on the dojo which seemed like top fun and I didn’t care for the episode 1 dojo very much. So will give that another go and see if it’s worth keeping.
  5. I was really finding anything to hold my interest, the last game to do so being Breath of The Wild. While I very much enjoyed my Rift when I had it, it often seemed like a chore to get everything working correctly. The Quest has changed EVERYTHING for me. Suits my busy family lifestyle, can be playing in seconds from deciding I want to. Lots of skill based, arcade style games plus some deeper and creative ones. I just love it so. And I love the instant on, fast load times, relatively cheap software and also not to mention it essentially feels like having an arcade of the future in
  6. This exactly. I purchased Dance Central and really did quite like it, it seemed very nicely done. However, song selection seemed limited (for the price) and I therefore couldn't see myself spending a lot of time on it as I like to mix it up more. Thus the near infinite (ish) amount of Beat Saber content just makes for endless fun. So I returned Dance Central for a refund but it did seem like fun and was pretty slick...so I would recommend doing the same. If there's anything I am on the fence with I simply buy and try. I think the limit is 5 returns a month / don't take
  7. Still worth getting that cable for some PCVR streaming and just as importantly custom beat saber songs which takes it to a whole new level.
  8. Yep, it worked well enough on my Shadow Cloud PC (which is in a data centre hundreds of miles away) to make me immediately start the process of shipping my gaming PC from the UK to Canada. Purely so that I can stream PCVR games locally. I have high hopes that it will be ‘good enough’ to enjoy and play Skyrim, Rez etc. and it’s all so simple, just install the app on a PC and log it in with your Oculus account and you are good to go (you also need to own a copy of Virtual Desktop as well as sideload the version that allows for PCVR streaming). Will report back once I have my gaming PC.
  9. The general consensus seems to be that Virtual Desktop does the best job, but I don't have my gaming PC shipped over to Canada yet so I've been unable to try a local connection. But essentially 5ghz, Virtual Desktop, your PC hard wired into the router and having a clean line of sight to the router. If you don't own Virtual Desktop I think it's worth owning regardless, or you could just buy it, try it and see if improves things for you and if it doesn't then refund it (you do need to sideload VD after buying it on the store to get the PCVR streaming capabilities).
  10. I found End Space a little repetitive when I tried it on the Rift at some point in the past, although not sure if things have changed. Some Quest highlights for me (mileage may vary depending on your experience of other VR devices and whether you have strong VR legs): Beat Saber (with custom songs via side loading) SuperHot Moss Sairento (my favourite of the moment although you do need to have found your feet in VR) Red Matter Tea for God (via side loading) Half Life (via side loading) GunClub (much better after the last update) Pinball FX
  11. The port really is excellent. Rock solid and to be honest I was not expecting the Quest to be able to produce graphics of this quality.
  12. Just a couple of updates on my continuing love of all things Quest. Continuing to have so much fun with Sairento, the new map and gun with the DLC just adding to it (very reasonably priced) with another free map coming in a couple of weeks and co-op boss battles at the end of the month. Great stuff. Red Matter seems really solid so far, puzzles not overly taxing and with a great atmosphere and very pretty for a Quest game.Time Stall looks really nice but I got bored of the gameplay mechanic after the first level but that's probably because it seems so slow after Sairento. Be inte
  13. 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 lik
  14. 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.
