I like playing games, but I'm not sure I want to be so completely immersed that I have absolutely no idea what's going on in the world immediately around me.
It’s one step away from a world of teenagers furiously doing naughty things to robots and never stepping outside.

I can’t see VR taking off any time soon

It’s obviously better than it’s ever been, but even the easily accessible stuff like PS4VR has been a flop

There’s not enough must-have games, so not enough people buy one. Then not enough people use it, so developers don’t bother. And spiral

Also, I think it’s a bit weird to be sat in the living room, with your headset on, ignoring anyone else in the house. When I’m gaming at home, on a normal PS4, on a normal TV, Bryony can join in a bit, “look out for those guys” etc. That’s not really possible with VR

I guess people have said similar about upcoming new tech forever?

Maybe the next big generation jump for VR will be the one?

Currently though, I expect the majority of headsets are currently sitting unused, getting quite dusty

Went here with eldest miklet.

ScottA has been there 2 (3?) Times previously and spoke highly - it was fab. 8-)

Great premises and setup.

First time so did 2x 20minute sprints with the aim of fastest lap. First session in Ginetta G4s at Donno. 2nd session balls oot in 900bhp Nissan GTP ZX Turbo around sone fictional Scottish road track. Lots of downforce, and bloody fast.

Highly immersive. Enjoyment. Will return to do a proper race with some others..... 8-)

I have pre-booked 2 rigs fir my lottery-win man-cave, but may install 4. If I have the space like? :?

Just to tag on to this, if anyone wants to buy a barely-used HTC Vive, let me know.

Summer, perfect time to sell a head heater.

Would love to buy either but SWMBO would kill me.

A lot.

Just read that No Man’s Sky has had a massive update and now has VR. Haven’t played it since it was first released but it’s a completely different game now supposedly. Always thought it was very pretty, will spend some time later this week just wondering the universe in VR probably.
Also kudos to the devs for still working on it!
How about not having a sig at all?

Hmm it’s sweaty enough for me without VR, don’t think I’d enjoy it much. I never play it as with the original as it requires too much concentration and focus whereas I game to relax more.

I've also heard lots of good stuff about NMS, Elite:Dangerous isn't getting a big update until late 2020 so NMS could be a nice fill in.

On a completely opposite note I've spend the last month trying to beat FTL, a space 2D roguelike that I got for £1.74, it's old school hard.

NMS is currently having serious performance issues too. This is the problem with games that aren't designed with VR in mind, they do tend to struggle with performance.

And FTL is fucking awesome. Absolutely love that little game, spent hours and hours. Did manage to eventually complete it on the easy difficulty! A lot of luck involved usually.

Talking of VR, this is everything thats great about the tech. When he start slapping that bloke around the face :lol: then winds down the window after the crash :lol: I'm a massive child so stuff like this tickles me.

I've been using the Rift again with ETS2. But even with new drivers for the GTX1070, it's crashing quite a bit. It may be because of the mods I've got installed, although Windows claims there is ample memory (24GB in total). Assetto Corsa playing up a little, too. Going to try ATS and see if that behaves. Or is the Rift just shite now?

Sounds like a software or driver issue, my 3 year old machine with 16gb has no issues.

Yeah definitely. Last night it did it with ETS2, ATS and Assetto Corsa. I don't think it's the Rift itself since sometimes it happens as soon as the game starts, other times 20 minutes in. Will continue digging.
