You can cheese those ones by just waggling the wrist of the saber that doesn’t have anything directly in front of it. Yeah I’m sure it’s a challenge to do properly and is trying to teach you a better scoring technique but like you say it’s not fun.

 

 

Yeah, the problem is I only have rhythm if there's rhythm (as in to the music that's playing) so arbitrarily waving my left arm (in particular for some reason) means I just fuck everything up. It's a lot more difficult than I expected.

Re: Beat Saber (I was going to add this as an edit to my last post, but think it's worth slightly more than that.)

 

What I found when trying to play the campaign was that it drained an awful lot of the enjoyment out of the game. Not just because I was being set these odd goals that required me to stand stock still, or wiggle my wrists like a twat, but because it robbed me of the enjoyment that I'd get from playing the game the way I naturally do - to strike poses, to scrape a saber (or both) off a wall in a quiet moment just for the sake of the sparks and the rumble it elicits - that sort of thing (which never got old). The basic game feels like it wants you to perform and to let rip, but the campaign wants to hobble you. It's piss-poor design, IMO.

Right, I thought it might just be me being shit, but it's good to know everyone else has fucked it off too.

Everybody's Golf VR and Farpoint are apparently £8.99 in the Days of Play sale. Superhot is £9.99. Skyrim VR is £19.99 because Bethesda.

SuperHot is a blast in VR but requires space.

Skyrim VR - ugh here we go again - is neat. I liked it a lot sitting on the couch with the regular Dual Shock but apparently it becomes magically good while standing with Moves. I could not get on with the latter, at all like.

No no no no no. I played it sat down, with move controllers. Playing Skyrim standing up becomes very tiring very quickly I found.

It was worth holding out for the sale for Gran Turismo as Spec II is £12.99. Looking forward to trying out the VR part later. 

The VR in this is amazing! Only downside is you can't race in VR...

You what now? You seriously can’t do races in VR?

No but it's great fun whizzing around any of the circuits!

 

Part of the reason I moved over to PC for VR - Project CARS is fantastic ...

 

It will be interesting to see how well Sony support VR on PS5 be good to get it integrated better with GT 7 (or whatever it ends up being called!).

Played DriveClub VR for the first time in ages and had forgotten how good it is.  Always makes me feel funny (half an hour is my limit) but it's a cracker. I think early reviews were skewed by it being a launch title and most reviewers were (a) getting their sea legs and (b) expecting the full Driveclub graphical experience in VR.  But whilst it is simplified in comparison to the non VR release, it's still quite the experience. The in-car views have a real claustrophobic feel to them as you check the mirrors and the HUD with the roof above your head, and the 3D is fantastic.   Is there a better racer on PSVR?

Driveclub is a bit of a shock to the system, as it's a lot more low-res than you expect when compared even to the other VR games, and massively lower-res than the non-VR version.

 

You feel like Dominic Cummings on his way to Barnard Castle. Chuckle, little bit of politics.

I've been enjoying playing around with this!  I'm glad Rez was my first ever VR experience, it's mind blowing.  I've played a few other static bits and bobs (Tetris, VR Worlds) and got on fine but Skyrim gave me the travel sickness sweats within twenty minutes :lol:

I've played a lot of Rez since the DC days and the first time I played it in VR I was blown away. I rate that moment as one of my best gaming experiences ever.

Even just looking down into the pit on the menu screen was incredible.  I 'woooaahhhhh'd hard. 

 

I bought Batman today and that's just unbelievable.

Forgot about Batman, it's fantastic alright.

 

Polybius, The Persistence and In Death are other hidden gems I enjoyed a lot.
