I've read Walkabout can be okay single player, Blaston not so much. I did go ahead and grab the Fanatical Oculus VR bundle too.

What all do I need for wireless PC play? I see that the airlink is built-in already, what does the app on the store called Virtual Desktop do different? I'm thinking about picking up Half-Life Alyx while it's on sale, but I know my computer graphics card will have to be updated, hopefully my processor/wifi are okay already.
Just install the Oculus app on your PC, if prompted plug your Quest 2 in via USB.

The virtual desktop app requires you sideload a version of the app to the Quest 2. It works similarly.

Re: The VR Thread (Oculus Rift, Vive, Playstation VR)

I got a Quest 2 for xmas. I purchased virtual desktop and my Steam VR titles (which I had installed with my pre-Rift Oculus) showed up on the list of games so that was cool. I got some 3d printed adapters so i could put in prescription lenses and that worked out well; much better than trying to wear it with glasses on. I bought Alyx on the steam winter sale so I'll have to see how it works.

Did the same thing when I purchased our Quest 2 last year. Virtual desktop and Alyx. I only played for a few minutes with this set up - suboptimal WiFi and limited space at the time - and the experience was much better than using the wired Oculus Rift. One day, when I can pry the headset away from my daughter, I'll finish Alyx.
