It’ll be interesting to see how VR affects combat vs playing the pancake version.  I love that you have to physically reload guns and pull pins for the grenades.  Also you can dual wield.  Will you be able to calmly reload while advancing hordes or bosses are attacking?

I don't think the lack of mercenaries and the extra DLC hurt it. I'd imagine you'll see some of it in the form of DLC. I'm 7 hours in so far and it's very, very good. It's a lot easier now but crowds can still be an issue to deal with, especially when you're surrounded by all times. I've played Resi countless times over the years when it's been re-released and this is the first time it's generally felt like a brand-new experience.

How do you control the movement and stuff? This could tip me over the edge into getting one of these….

For resi evil there are various controls you can use the teleport mode (point and click where you want to move to) or you can use the thumbsticks to move like an fps game (both can be done standing or seated) there are other tweaks you can do like smooth turn or snap turn so you turn when you push left or right on the thumb stick 45 degree turns.  Of coarse you can also freely walk irl about your play space as well 🙂 

 

for weapons etc it’s all motion control so you use the guns like you would in real life with your hands or pick up stuff by picking them up with your hands (well with the motion controllers)

Nnnnnnnngh. I've got £8 credit because I haven't used my Oculus in a while, but I've already bought two games this month and have about ten Oculus games I haven't even touched yet. Must stay strong!

 

I'm glad it's doing so well, though.

Go on you know you want to….. 😉 esp for £22 (with your discount) lol

I'm enjoying this but am not wowed yet (some of the Ganado linking animations are pretty clunky these days, for example), although I haven't yet reached the first boss. I didn't see the chainsaw guy in the village bit, only heard him - which was disappointing, as I was expecting to be shitting myself when encountering him! I didn't get the shotgun in the village either, hmmmm. Hope I can go back. (Also, has anyone worked out how to write to a different save slot with the typewriter rather than having to overwrite the one you already have in place?)

There's a knob on the left hand side of the typewriter. You simply turn it to select another save point.

Had the old Oculus30 discount waiting for me, so decided to go for it for £21. Never played through the full thing. Hopefully it’ll feel like good value

 

Cool, i thought that promotion had ended.  I may use the code and get this if still valid

RE4 is really, really, really good. Maybe the best version of the game. And it's one of the best games ever made. It's peppered with great new decisions and mechanics relating to VR which sit atop the already great foundation. It feels fantastic, whether you go for a seated comfortable experience or a full-motion FPS with the laser sight turned off (my preference!) The weapons all feel great and there are lots of things borrowed from Alyx but made more approachable.

I had my first proper go on VR Saturday at a dedicated centre (so I had my own space to walk around in) and I have to say, I was very underwhelmed. It was using a Vive setup I think, and I tried a few experiences: Richie's Plank Experience, Propagation VR and Creed.

 

Richie's Plank Experience didn't really have any sense of 'being' there, plus it was only about 5 minutes

 

Propagation I co-op'd with my girlfriend and it wasn't terrible, but the shooting hit-detection felt very loose and the actual gameplay - move forward, defend a space, repeat. Again, I didn't really feel I was in the game world, though it was better than Richie's, and leaning out from behind a school bus was quite cool.

 

Creed was the worst though, with punches seeming to arbitrarily connect. I didn't ever feel in control of my actions and there was a disconnect between what I was doing and what was happening in front of me, especially when punches weren't connecting (even though my opponent was pretty much standing on my toes and within range.)

 

Overall, then, it wasn't something that I feel I would return to. I guess I expected a greater sense of having a real world around me, but it never quite did. It didn't help that the picture was a little bit fuzzy and not pin-sharp.

 

I'm sure there are much, much better examples of the tech out there, but even having been in a decent space, the wired headset was a problem (and the wire in this place went directly up to the ceiling - and yet I could still feel it tangling a little as I was moving around. Ultimately I can't see it being a tech I would buy in-to.
