Unfortunately the Bullet Storm VR remake looks to be a huge miss.

Anyone play Crashand VR? This game is brutal, I've been trying to get through the first mission for 2 days.

Re: The VR Gaming Thread (Meta Quest, Vive, PSVR)

Despite having a Quest 3 for about 2 months, I never truly got around to playing it (set it up, that's it) for various reasons. Today I actually fired up 7th Guest and it's amazing.

Re: The VR Gaming Thread (Meta Quest, Vive, PSVR)

I made Bob the Robot (modified from an existing model) to act as a stand for the Quest. It worked when using the Meta strap but if you switch to a headstrap with battery, it flips over backwards because of the rear weight. Ended up putting a back "leg"/support and some felt on top to make it less slippery. I'm still testing the connectors for each part because they were way too loose to begin with. I'll probably put it on Etsy.

I just put Bob the Robot on Etsy if anyone is interested. First 5 buyers get 25% off. Plus, it's available in Sakura Pink until the Oscars.

If I didn't already have a stand for my PS4 VR headset, I would buy this in a second. Very cool!

Aside from a seconds hiccup it seemed to play really well. Now Asgard's Wrath 2 will probably disappoint me since the graphics looked so spectacular compared to what I used to on the Quest.
I finished Asgard's Wrath. Gameplay was flawless after some adjustments in the game settings (following recommendations by a Reddit post). I don't know if everyone realized that the game is free (through the Oculus store on the PC) if you got Asgard's Wrath 2 (or at least it was redeeming the free AW2 that came with with purchase of a new Quest 3).

Spectacular looking game that unfortunately had one of the worst endings I've ever seen in a video game. It was like one of those joke "bad" endings you get when you made a wrong choice (making you reload a save and try again). Except ... it was for real. At least I won't have to wait 4 years for a sequel like players did when it first came out.

I'm holding off on AW2 until they release the Quest 3 optimization that they've said they're working on.

Terrific news for PSVR2:

Also, we’re pleased to share that we are currently testing the ability for PS VR2 players to access additional games on PC to offer even more game variety in addition to the PS VR2 titles available through PS5. We hope to make this support available in 2024, so stay tuned for more updates.

Re: The VR Gaming Thread (Meta Quest, Vive, PSVR)

Well, I did it! I'm joining the ranks of the PSVR2 owners who've ponied up for the Globular Cluster mod, which -- by every account I've seen -- makes the headset massively more comfortable and better locks in the sweet spot.

I haven't really used my headset much since my, errr, day one purchase, but the one-two punch of the two Moss games really won me over. Now I just need to get prescription inserts!

Lucky. If I was just experiencing it for the first time these days it'd be mind bottling.

I quote that dumbass movie more than I care to admit, and since nobody in the real world appears to remember it I just sound stupid and/or insane. It's fantastic.
