I don't have a VR setup, but here's a search to find 'free to play', 'single player' 'VR Only' games on Steam (once in a while 'free to play' games aren poorly tagged and aren't free), ordered by review:

I had to come back and strongly recommend soundboxing. That thing is b***dy awesome, and absolutely hilarious (I just spent about 20 minutes trying to get a solid highscore on the Skyrim Theme).
I don't even usually like rhythm games, but now at some point I sense I'm going to have to explain to my roommate why I punched through my computer in the middle of the night.
Also works well on rift despite not being listed as compatible.
It's an excellent game, I don't know why I didn't list that.
I was lucky and got to beta test (and keep) it.
One guy on the internet used it as a way of losing weight.
He lost a shed load.
Nice!
I can imagine that it would be good for getting fit. I though it was really clever the way that you can play, and do well, just by getting continuous chains, but you get more points (and explosions) for hitting them more enthusiastically, so people can kind of scale up. Such good design!
Any favourite tracks?

I go for mainly dance tracks.
Shouldn't do as my kids hate my taste in music being nearly 40 years old X)

Yep! Here's the full list of other titles on sale too (NB: I grabbed this from Reddit, so fair credit to the gent - or lady - there who posted it - 'watahboy'... so presumably a gent...) ;)

Edit: to be clear in the UK they are sold in pounds, but I think it's a pretty straight conversion. In fact the ones I've checked are slightly cheaper than if you paid dollars based on today's exchange rate - i'm guessing because the pound vs dollar has been moving around a bit over the last few days/weeks!

I really don't get the hate with VR. It's really not that expensive, just to put it into comparison I just randomly picked the latest Iphone 7 with 128GB storage and it's £55 a month on a 24 month contract with EE right now. £1320 in total, that's more than double the cost of an Oculus and touch controllers. Yea sure the phone is new and about 10% better than the old one. One is a mobile almost exactly like your last one and the other is able to transport your body and mind to new worlds.

I cam home from work and floated around the International Space Station in what feels like zero gravity. Trying a VR headset for the first time is right up there with the first time started Mario 64, watching the special effects of Jurassic park as a kid or watching Avatar in 3D.

I have yet to meet anybody at the end of their 2 year phone contract that were happy with their device, you would never find a Oculus or Vive customer say the same about their VR headset.

Why is such a huge reduction going cold ? Have you brought these at full price and peeved ? Anti Oculus ?
All these games can go for a few quid at a time on sale (and Valkyrie is a rip off).
Personally think rift is hurting VR with exclusives when the whole of VR needs better titles.
Just waiting for gaming VR to die like the 3dtv (yes it will stick around professionally as it has a number of uses)
Just curious - have you spent long in a rift or a vive?
Hi
I love my Vive and PSVR. I have pretty much every game on PSVR and a lot of Vive Games.
I also love 3d TVs but VR looks like going the same way.. Rift is helping in the demise.
I liked the New 3DS with the head tracking (although it felt late to the party), but have never got on with 3D TV's particularly. They are cool in concept, but never felt like they really had the depth to be worth while. I guess they might be a different experience if you have a 70" screen or something (instead of a measly 40")!
I just can't understand the comparison between VR and 3DTV though. Games like Subnautica, which I've really enjoyed in VR, I can't even consider playing on a screen now. Same for things like Elite Dangerous. They are hands down better as immersive experiences that surround you. I didn't have that kind of conversion with 3DTV media. I thought 3D media was at it's core equal or worse than 2D media as an experience due to the blurriness in motion.
I definitely agree that fragmentation is damaging to the VR industry though. I love VR, but I wouldn't recommend someone who isn't a reasonably savvy PC gamer get a Vive or a Rift right now. I don't think this is totally down to Oculus though. My understanding is that Oculus would like Vive users to use their store, but HTC/Valve won't open up the hardware to allow it to use the Oculus SDK, and Oculus only want to use their own SDK on their store - for quality control reasons (and perhaps others). There are also plenty of Vive exclusive games, even if they aren't exclusive due to store restrictions. It just feels like a complex environment at the moment, and one that isn't at all ideal for consumers.
I guess the difference is that I think that shared VR standards will probably sort that out for Gen 2, which is where I think more people should (and hopefully will) jump in - both because converts like me will buy the new hardware, and because that will make the Gen 1 hardware cheaper for those who are just curious, and have older PC's, or have bought new PC's on a budget - once the equivalent of a GTX 970 is available in the low range cost bracket of graphics cards.
How's the PSVR? I haven't been able to give it a try (no PS4).
I guess, I have love hate relationship with 3D Movies. I used to love my 50 inch Samsung Plasma (had the depth that a lot of TV's seem to miss). I upgraded to a 4k Samsung which has... meh 3D.. and visit my old TV at my sister's with envy.
PSVR is in many ways a better experience than my Vive as it has less of a "portal" effect and gets me immersed more quickly, much more comfortable too.. it also has the best VR game yet (RE 7) and I have yet to have a better experience than Headmaster.
On the flip side, the move controllers are a massive step down from the Vive (although they can work well with patience) and the lack of room scale (although I think room scale puts many off and often limits my Vive time as I have the move a few things around).
I really hope Farpoint manages to sell a lot more PSVR's
I've been a bit frightened to try Elite Dangerous (bought it on the last steam sale) as I fear it will take over my life!

Haha, i'm totally anthropomorphising your abandoned TV. Mine's a samsung too. It's good in many ways. Nice and clean, and the 3D with active glasses is crisp, but yeah, not very depthy. Maybe it's a Samsung thing. Or maybe it's just certain sets or something.

Farpoint does look interesting. I'll have to try to convince my friend with a PS4 to get involved so I can give it and the PSVR a go! ;) I did think about selling my Xbox, which gets no use at all, and getting all the kit, but it seemed like a big investment, and I was concerned about it being a walled garden. It would be fantastic if PS4 released something that let the PSVR work via some kind of PC run service - like Microsoft are doing with the Xbox brand. Would love to give Zero Dawn a go too. Wishful thinking though probably.

Elite Dangerous, at least the base game, never quite got me hooked like other MMO's (which I avoid for this reason) did. I really like it as a meditative experience, but the grind feels so ridiculous at certain levels, and the content so unvaried, that actually I don't feel compelled to work for it. It's a bit of a contradiction for me because I'd love it to be more involving, but as it is it's a fantastic game to just chill out with a beer in when you feel like it. So a mixed experience, but I reckon you're safe to dip foot in. You should definitely try the tutorials if you haven't already, they're good fun on their own!

Have you tried Subnautica? I can't recommend that game enough. (It's early access, but about to be complete). I mention it because that game actually scares me. Starts off just splashing around in beautiful tropical water. 5 hours later, and I'm spending most of my time in terrifying darkness glancing around furtively for reapers. It's great the way it slowly builds and uses atmosphere to encourage you to get the vehicles so that you can feel safe again!

To geebeegooner's point in steam.. I disagree. I don't think it really hurts too much as I've never bought a really bad game, that's what reviews are for and more monkeys will eventually give us Shakespeare...

You can get some great experiences for a few quid on steam that can be £20 on PSVR.

My least favorite purchase has been Apollo VR which seems to be raved about. It just doesn't deliver for me (as a many time visitor to Kenedy) as I find the Imax Blurays give me a far better experience on my TV.

Have these to use with PSVR and Vive. Fit well with PSVR but slightly awkward over my ears with the Vive. Paid £50 for mine so this is a steal.
Sound is nothing special.. can't comment on mic quality but great immersion due to blocking external ambiances.
First time I used them was playing Accounting and smashed my lightbulb without realising while on trial.
Also, they come with a long cable to connect to PC. I used them for gaming for a bit (no headset) and they hurt the top of my head.

i am confused your first praise it than state it hurt the top of your head how is it a good headset than maybe I miss understood

Good for VR (as they don't contact your head due to the headset) but If you want them and don't intend to use them with a VR headset, I would steer clear.

No, these only work with the Rift headset.

still, these are almost essential



I don't get comments like this, kickstarter aside... it doesn't matter what you buy if it's not limited, it will always be cheaper and/or better at some point in the future.... because that's how bussiness works... either the product is improved or sold cheaper to attract new customers... the 'early adopters' deserve no loyalty... they have had the product longer... that's what they pay for...

p.s. I've had the Rift + touch since launch... it's awesome

I bought this and an intel i3 with a GTX 470 and it's flawless. They lowered the spec required for this but HTC still needsa much higher spec for some reason. Pc cost me £356 and now I'm playing Superhot and a whole heap of free VR games. It was this or the PS4 Pro and PsVR+motion controllers and camera which ran about the same price but 1/2 as good
Thanks, I'll do that.

Tried Elite Dangerous out - only using controller to test for now instead of setting up flight stick etc - massive performance improvement since when tried on DK2 back in the day where it was pretty much unplayable.

The godrays are a bit annoying at times giving a bit of a smudgy effect but all still a milestone ahead of the troubles used to get in DK1/2

Suffered badly in the DKs also with motion sickness. Had no issues with robo recall. Was surprised how well 'teleport' worked without feeling nauseous. I did get a bit queezy with Lucky's Tale tho, but nowhere to same extent (yet)...will be interesting when try some of the older stuff that was more prone to knock me for 6

Pinball is great

bit of a grumble about when its turned off - windows still defaults to using the headphones as the default playback device.....easy changed...but will be a pain to have to set that back and forth each time

As a workaround to all your issues, set your usual sound speakers to default when the Rift is on, then it'll stop doing it (The Rift will auto-route any VR audio to the Rift, whether its default or not). Also, close the Rift store app to turn off the rift. Then it'll be off unless you put the headset on, at which point it'll relaunch the store.

in a nutshell to fully stop the app and display from coming on do a "net stop ovrservice" command.

At least I see it doesn't appear to tie gpu usage up when display is off which was a little cornered about.

Now I am thinking Oculus Rift lol, seems to have more games! controllers look nicer too
It's a tough one, and depends what kind of games you'll want to use and how much space you have, and even what pc.
I've a vive, and have just enough room for room-scale which adds a lot of realism. If you've only enough room for standing or seated, then an oculus is cheaper if you don't want the touch controls. If you've enough room it works out about the same price once you've bought those extra I think.
Now, as far as I know, the oculus needs a little more pc spec and more pc ports. The vive only needs one usb2 port and one hdmi. I think the oculus needs one or two usb3 ports, which I didn't have on my older setup. So worth looking at such requirements.
Also to the more games argument, htc vive can run most oculus rift store games with the Revive add on for steam. Have a google for htc revive compatibility list to see if the games you're interested in work fully or not
The oculus is £70 cheaper with Touch, but is actually £10 more expensive if you buy the additional 3rd sensor, which in my opinion if you want to do room scale, you'll need to. I couldn't get the tracking with two sensors to work well enough in my home environment (which is fairly restrictive). . Both come with software bundles too.
I think the Vive probably has slightly better tracking based on what I've heard, but it's more prone to interference from some devices (because lasers are used).
In terms of the quality of the headset, I think your experience probably depends on the shape of your face, because people have such contrasting viewpoints.
Performance wise, the oculus actually requires a marginally lower spec due to the ability to use asynchronous timewarp. It uses WAY more USB ports, but it uses no power sockets, whilst the Vive needs three, so it's a toss up! Either way you could always get a USB card for your PC, or a couple of cheap extension cables. :)
Vive has asynchronous reprojection now to rival the time warp, but I'm not sure how much that brings down requirements. Also it only works properly on nvidea cards at the moment, which leaves my rx480 grumbly on many titles.
Nice! I'm sure it must be AMD driver related though, right? Hopefully they'll pull their finger out for the Vega reveal, which is today I think?!
Yes it's AMD's fault afaik. They're always mentioning their liquidVR tech and avoiding the subject. I'm hoping there'll be some info today as that'd give me hope for some of the games that are not specifically built from the ground up for VR.

And one thing I like about steamVR is the user generated customisations. The star trek holodeck makes a nice VR starting point, and The Simpsons living room is pretty fun to be standing in.

I think I am not ready to buy yet lol, it feels too early to decide on which to go. If the Vive can run some Oculus games then that is good. I just assumed all games were available to both haha.
Tbh, it's too early for me I think. I don't see any games I want yet. Just bonus month at work soon so I was looking for something to buy haha
It is early days definitely, although it feels like the pace has started picking up. I've seen one or two decent looking games crop up over the last little while.
I've enjoyed:
Lucky's Tale
Space Pirate Trainer
Subnautica
Elite Dangerous
Solus Project
and when I get bored I'm planning on potentially picking up:
Chronos
Superhot VR
Shufflepuck
Holoball
Hollowpoint
QuivR
Mervils
Thumper
Sublevel Zero
Landfall
Tethered.
and Robo Recall is coming out soon as well, and will be free in the same fashion that Lucky's Tale was I think. (Free to Rift owners, but possibly you can access it using Revive too)!
Yeh Chronos and Subnautica could be interesting but not enough for me to buy one yet. Subnautica will be terrifying I think lol, under the sea already freaks me out haha.
Subnautica is pretty awesome, and yeah, the sea creatures can be a bit terrifying! I also find the sea at night (in the game) a bit intimidating. Just doesn't feel right!
Just a heads up: moving around in VR whilst seated can be a bit disorientating. I was okay with it, my friend got mildly nauseous at first but she did get over it.
Definitely go and check out a demo. You sound like me pre trying out touch. I think you'll be suprised by how much you enjoy stuff like Space Pirate Trainer. Playing the first contact demo, along with some bits in The Lab will give you a really good impression of the potential. Plus they're free! Nintendo would sell you The Lab as a £30 game I reckon! :D
I really want to try especially after viewing the vive video on Steam lol. Big steam gamer so maybe the vive is better hmm? lol
I am shocked, I checked for store demos, closest is yorkshire to me. I'd of expected Leeds city centre area to at least have some, that place is huge!

Much the same I think - most (insane numbers) of my games are on Steam. I always buy stuff on Steam vs the oculus store if I can because, although the VR environment is much worse, the store as a whole is much better. Some games are labelled as vive only, but as long as you have the 3rd sensor for roomscale, you should be golden.

Interesting racing features quite heavily online in GTA V and you can now drive cars in first person view. .Rockstar has also modeled the interiors of the cars and you can also change interiors. I agree though, I think the game needs to be made for VR at the time of coding, rather than patched together later on.

Plus Elite Dangerous, DCS and Aero Fly 2. Oh and Google earth aint half bad either. Dont buy if your into shooters. I use the rift in palace of my triple monitors
Not tried GTAV, as its first person and this type of game is really not suitable in my opinion for VR. Best games are Driving, Flying. Roller coaster type games and Google earth.

This is a good price for those that want it. VR is for early adopters right now. People with more money than sense. Hopefully in a few years they will be more affordable and every game will be compatible without the need for special editions. Then I will be all in. Would love to play alien isolation in VR.

I think a fair few people are waiting for Scorpio to see what VR it will havehttp://www.xbox.com/en-GB/project-scorpio
The problem with resolution is that you need an incredibly high resolution and thus data rate if you want photo-realism anywhere you look. The solution is to use eye tracking and then you only need to perfectly render what someone's looking at - only a relatively narrow field of view of your eyes actually sees things in hires colour.
Something like this: https://www.getfove.com/about/

At 6 TFLOPS GPU power, it will be just a smidge behind the Geforce 1070 in graphics capability.

I want one for the racing games like project cars and Assetto corsa. It'd be cool to try out the touch controllers too but £500 just for the headset is still too much considering I can name two games I'd be looking forward to playing.

Paid full price for these last week and they are definitely worth it. Fantastic deal at this price. Heat added.
Did you buy them direct from Oculus or Amazon, I was on the fence wether to get them or not but I think at this price they worth having even if I end up keeping them as a spare.
I got them from GAME with some vouchers I had been given over christmas. Is a noticeable difference right away compared to the ones that come with the rift. They completely cut out any background noise that you would normally get as well. Worth it for this price.

I was going to say if you got them from Amazon you could always try and get them to refund the difference if you only got them last week.

Mine arrive tomorrow, looking forward to hearing the difference. I had a PSVR for a little while and I preferred the earbuds to the headphones so I think I will like them.

In case it helps anyone. I got one of these (the latest headset) from a seller on ebay (citiwide-online_uk) for £42ish
It came from Ireland but was (I guess) a chinese/korean import.
e.g. it works perfectly, seems genuine, just comes with bits of paper that I can't read!
Was looking at these ones on ebay from Ireland, I see the pic of the back of the box is all in Chinese, so I am a bit wary it could be a fake copy, any issues with yours?
I'm not an expert but it seems a genuine machine to me. It works with my S7 fine.
Only negative is ALL the writing on the box and the leaflets is in chinese/korean. But it's fairly easy to work out how to use.

The section on Mid-range headsets discusses the Gear VR. Although I sold the one I got with my S7 I've just ordered this new version. For science. :{
tek-monkey
Others available at similar prices, what does it do that cheap headsets can't?

I don't own one anymore and haven't touched the cheap versions, but I believe that the advantage this has is the integration with the occulus store. It also has the built in controls and I would also imagine that the quality of materials (which translates to long term comfort and is something to seriously consider on VR) is higher.
On this particular version the USB flexibility is a bonus as well as the tight integration with Samsung phones if you own one.

Is it worth the premium over the cheaper headsets?

No eye deer. :D merry Christmas

I've purchased three titles on the Oculus 24hr sales, though admittedly it feels like I'm getting realistic prices, not a bargain. The VR price matrix is completely wrong and should be encouraging consumers to buy into lots of new experiences, not occasionally spending £30-£40 on 2-4 hours of gameplay.

Yeah VR stuff is a bit niche but at least the sale seems to be bringing the prices down reasonably well

360 beat the ps3

ps4 is beating the xbox1

its not really that hard
hero9989

Also if you do your research, the 360 (in its first couple of years) Microsoft tried really hard to take the Asian market with games like blue dragon, etc and taking away the Final Fantasy XIII exclusivity from Sony.
It worked somewhat but not a huge amount. It hasn't be for lack of trying to expand its market, it was a lack of demand (for whatever reason). Same applies to the Xbox One.

I am fully aware of that however I can assure you that the same absolutely does not apply to the Xbox One.

Look at the PS3, came out at an astronomical price compared to competition (£425 Vs 360 - £280 and Wii - £180) but ended up selling a ridiculous amount after a price drop.
The PS3 still had its **** handed to it by the opposition pretty much throughout the entirety of its life cycle.
No need to curse, if you don't have facts to back yourself up, just drop it, no need to get touchy...
But just so you can be informed next time;
Compared to the Xbox 360, The PS3 has sold more units. Considering the 360 had a full year head start. Not sure you can say it handed anything to the PS3...
The Wii did extremely well to start but after 2010 (it had already started after 2009) Wii sales tanked massively whilst the 360 and PS3 both carried on selling pretty well, especially after the slim consoles came out
None of that even comes close to being fact. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_best-selling_game_consoles
Factor in that Sony consoles are released and marketed in a lot of emerging markets plus Japan as well whereas Microsoft focused most of their efforts on the US, Canada and the UK with the 360 and unofficially the 360 lost first-party software support before the PS3 did.
I wrote my MSc thesis on the Western games industry and the Japanese market so I'm going to wager that I know a lot more about this particular subject than you do.

You're referencing Wikipedia... At the very least; check where the wiki page is getting its information, especially when it clearly isn't a factual number. If you do you'll notice that it explains the >83.8 million number next to the PS3 (which is approximate at best).
It basically assumes that when they shipped the 3.4m units in 2014 there were 0 consoles already on the shelves (globally). Seems somewhat unlikely... (You also didn't respond to the fact that the 360 was out for a full year with no competition)

Also - a more up to date set of figures can be found Here

Even taking your wiki research at face value (which I'd rather not do). The 360 beat the PS3 by 0.24%.
In what universe is anything handing anything to anyone with 0.24% sales...

Also if you do your research, the 360 (in its first couple of years) Microsoft tried really hard to take the Asian market with games like blue dragon, etc and taking away the Final Fantasy XIII exclusivity from Sony.
It worked somewhat but not a huge amount. It hasn't be for lack of trying to expand its market, it was a lack of demand (for whatever reason). Same applies to the Xbox One.

I got TheBlu, because i love scuba diving but with a new family i wont be going any time soon, but its an experience not a game.
there is a lot of content, no one can suggest Oculus launched touch without anything to use on it, and most of it seems fairly good quality with a few strange exceptions, so it is hard to say. My advice......

buy something which is an oculus store exclusive and not on steam (note i did not take my own advice here!!!). as a rule of thumb steam stuff tends to be cheaper, and also stuff like pCARs you cant cross play with steam users so apparently the oculus store version is a little sparse online. Also Steam supports all headsets, where as right now officially oculus store only supports the rift, so if ever in the future you decide to switch devices, you may find it harder to access your oculus store stuff (this is not a vive vs oculus fanboy thread and there are many theories about who is at fault for this - though long term i would say valve can only be the winners if they stay like this, oculus needs to sell their store exclusives to vive owners if their store is to succeed imo).

if you cant decide yet just buy something cheap then you can play with the free stuff once you get your hmd and get a feel for what floats your boat.

edit and make sure you do not buy stuff which comes free if you buy the touch!!!

so medium, quill, dead and buried spring to mind.. .dont get these!.

I can play these games on Vive with ReVive right?
You should be able to, I'm wary about buying anything from oculus though without knowing for certain it will work indefinitely on the vive. Remember, both superhot and the climb will be coming out on the vive next year anyway. I would just hold off, suspect they will be a fair bit cheaper then too.
For any oculus players, Space Pirate is definitely worth the money, great game.
If you check this title out on Steam you will see it has both Oculus & Vive icons :-)
Sorry, which game on steam has both icons? SPT is the only game above I know you can buy on steam and play on vive, the rest you need to use Revive with.

Thanks OP and thanks for the tip of Drop Dead. I've just picked up the Gear VR from the O2 Priority deal and so bought this and Drop Dead. Only tried Drop Dead so far and it's excellent. It reminds me of the old house of the dead games. Even my better half thought it was great and she normally scoffs at "stupid computer games"
Cracking deal, also Drop Dead is 20% off and looks visually great for a mobile VR game.
Struggling to add an image if anyone could kindly help? Thank you

Make sure you don't use Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, Amazon Video,Netflix or a smart phone.
Yes except none are as (or claim to be) blatantly invasive, see a few excerpts from their privacy policy below about what's collected:
"Information about the games, content, or other apps installed on your device or provided through our Services, including from third parties;"
"Information about your physical movements and dimensions when you use a virtual reality headset."
Location information, which can be derived from information such as your device's IP address. If you're using a mobile device, we may collect information about the device's precise location, which is derived from sources such as the device's GPS signal and information about nearby WiFi networks and cell towers.
Furthermore there is no way to opt out of this and it is monitoring your apps, pc configuration and third party apps even when the Oculus applications aren't running according to various sources.
While I understand this won't bother some/most people I find it enough of a reason to sway me toward the latter, more expensive alternative

HTC Vive

Need to consider both HTC's privacy policy and Valve's privacy policy.
They go through nearly the same information as Oculus, such as name, address, GPS locations, IP addresses, billing details, etc.
They use nearly the same methods of sharing data, such as legal compliances, business transactions like acquisitions, consent, services providers, and using deidentified data for any purpose
Valve will not share identifyable info with 3rd parties except with service providers like warehousing, shipping, and payment processing
Valve will not collect information about people under age of 13, which does not appear in Oculus' or HTC's privacy policies
HTC can share deidentifiable and possibly identifiable information with 3rd party ad agencies
HTC is not responsible for how 3rd party ad agencies use your information
HTC works with group called "Network Advertisement Initiative" which has 101 member companies

So Oculus info stays inhouse, The HTC Vive info goes all over.
These headsets will collect data to improve services etc..
Netflix collects data about what you watch, where you watch it, how you watch it, when you pause rewind etc.. ,and what you watch it on.
I don't have facebook btw.

Also the traffic that the Oculus app uses has been monitored and it does not collect info about what you are doing when you are not using it.
To think that facebook want to know what i am doing on my PC all the time when I am not using the Oculus is tin foil hat territory.
I would be more concerned that HTC just hand your data over to advertisers. How do you monitor that?

Tried checking with the tool and it says no to my FX 9590 but it does no benchmarks, it just checks a list. AMD have released a list of processors that they tested and mine is on it. Also it said my USB 3 ports were not up to scratch but I have a Gigabyte 990FX-Gaming motherboard.
The compatibility tool seems a little (a lot) biased.

Just in case the compatibility tool is not as accurate as some suggested I downloaded the drivers/software and installed it and selected the simplest free app or game that said it did not need any extra controllers and such, the robot or android ABE one, but the headset never lit up at all. As three of us have tried it then it may of course have been a faulty unit but so far we have been unable to get it to work on my i5 or two earlier socket i7 computers.


That might be an issue with the USB if it did not respond. A cheap card might be the solution? Just a thought?

I was going to get this since it seems my type of game but the reviews on steam dint seem too good. it's worth checking them out before making the purchase but the price seems good enough

The reviews are people who have bad motion sickness and couldn't handle it. It's a very queasy inducing game in VR. It also NEEDS VR to be interesting, so I wouldn't bother unless you own a vive or rift.
I watched Lirik play around half of this, apart from being pretty it doesn't seem to have anything else going for it (hence the quick 50% discount). The whole game seemed to be just figuring out where to float to next before your O2 runs out.
Got it. terrible controls on vive. Honestly don't bother with it.
Has hands and vive controllers on screen.

OK I should have worded that better. It does have the icon, but vive functionality has been missing as the icon automatically appears if the devs use steam's beta functionality. The game was meant to get an update adding vive support on the 28th of this month, but has that update appeared yet?
The store page says its been updated. I havent tried it though

oh its been updated, dont know why they bothered, its rubbish, have a look on /r/vive

I wouldn't recommend it.

Ooh, thanks for this. I've not really used mine much apart from playing around with it a bit when I first got it. I was tempted to try Lands End but sounded like it was very short, but might give it a pop at that price.
Anyone able to recommend any half decent and cheap bluetooth controllers to use, I don't want to splash out much as I still can't see myself using it much, but quite fancy trying the odd game that needs a controller.
I've got the Ipega 9021 bluetooth controller which works fine and only cost £12.99 from Funstock. It's showing out of stock now, but you can probably pick it up cheaply on ebay or elsewhere.

Thanks, I'll take a look :)

What games would people recommend?
I've played gun jack on a mates and enjoyed that so jumped on it, not sure about any other the others. Tempted by that zombie game as well

Of the games on sale I've played 6:

Land's End - a short but impressive experience, definitely worth a go for £1.49. Not much in the way of puzzles, but it's really immersive and I like the graphics.

Bandit Six Salvo - fun turret shooter, you can choose which turrets to use, add power-ups and switch between them in game, it's a decent game to play in short bursts.

Anshar Wars 2 - I only bought this the other day in the sale so can't give a full review but what I've played seems good. Also has multiplayer which I haven't tried yet and is the first Gear VR game to be cross-buy - if you buy the Gear VR version you also get the Rift version (according to the store page - I can't confirm as I don't have a rift)

Into The Dead - It's an endless runner with zombies, which doesn't sound that interesting but is actually a lot of fun. There's challenges to complete and new weapons and dogs to unlock so it's one that I keep going back to. Depends whether you like endless runners though.

Dead Secret - good adventure game with horror elements, I haven't completed this yet but enjoyed what I've played.

End Space - my favourite Gear VR game to date, this is a great space sim - my only complaint is I wish there were more levels although I believe the dev is working on adding content.
Any recommendations other than Dreadhalls and End Space?

I have bought the bundle but slightly concerned that some of these will not be compatible with Oculus SDK 1.3. Could be a hassle and no guarantee the developers will update them.
Will do some research/ testing and post the results unless somebody saves me the effort ;)
...just use runtime switcher if u have DK2
Yeah I must look into that, I shelved my DK2 for a long time but started using it again a few weeks ago.
Quite impressed with the technical improvements but really surprised Oculus Home doesn't feature at least one Roller Coaster experience. Although the newer content is extremely polished I'm starting to miss some of the earlier demonstration material, what happened to all the stomach churners?

Hi, what can you actually do with these VR Headsets? I was trying to look yesterday, any good games that are worth using with this?
These are great for burning spare cash.
Forgot to mention that after a month or so, they'll do a fantastic job gathering dust.
Got one of the cardboard ones recently, and whilst it's great fun, like 3d TV the novelty soon wears off. Unless there is some breakthrough game and its part of the next gen consoles I can't really see how this could really take off.
Get this buy Dreadhalls then come back and tell me your feelings.

I am actually considering getting an NVidia Shield, whch comes with a controller, which I believe should work ok with this.
Hi
No it wont work, as I allready have that...the controller fro Nvidia is bluetooth input, where it needs to be bluetooth with direct input. annoying as hell as my Nvidia one just sits there unused
Doh! That'll teach me. Still, it means I have a new Shield on its way :)
on Reddit, this got a vote of positivity, cheap as wellhttp://www.gearbest.com/video-game/pp_167775.html
Thanks for that, looks nice and cheap, and don't mind waiting for delivery, especially as my Shield arrived, and I have just started playing with it. Really want to get some 4K stuff to show off my TV. On a side note, are there any particular repo's you would recommend? I have seen recommendations for the Beast, Schism and KodiMaster...

Hi, what can you actually do with these VR Headsets? I was trying to look yesterday, any good games that are worth using with this?
These are great for burning spare cash.
Forgot to mention that after a month or so, they'll do a fantastic job gathering dust.
Got one of the cardboard ones recently, and whilst it's great fun, like 3d TV the novelty soon wears off. Unless there is some breakthrough game and its part of the next gen consoles I can't really see how this could really take off.
Get this buy Dreadhalls then come back and tell me your feelings.

Amazing, I love Android! Thanks very much for this!
Sounds good , now to find a new android phone to replace my ageing iPhone.
Well done for putting this on here. I never thought of listing it... The full version is a paid for app though not a freebie. I must say though I've been impressed with it. Works very well with Assetto Corsa.

With FPS I find it a little confusing. you look around and your character is then running in that direction... or in ARMA II your character is facing one way and running another. I guess it's just getting used to the new technology though.

Making the box itself is free, but it's useless without the lenses, which from what you've posted, cost more than 3 of the ones you can buy....

if it helps anyone, it works with a samsung s3 mini, but the magnet switch doesn't work unless you move its location to the back of the phone - "chair in a room" is possibly the best use i've seen of it so far.

Nearly 8 weeks later and still no sign of it. Both times I've contacted them they just say "Allow a few more days and contact us if it hasn't arrived in 2 weeks"

Anyone else still waiting on their delivery?

Same here, never use again, paypal refund, glad I ordered the plastic ones.

Did you request a refund directly through paypal? In this sort of situation I've always contacted the seller and they've always refunded me, although with DX it'll probably be 2015 before they finally agree to a refund

contacted the seller and had reply, wait another 2 weeks and meanwhile paypal refund option is ticking down :p

Received mine a few days ago. Using it with an LG G3.
If anyone has ever tried the old VR headset (you used to find them in shopping centers etc), you'll see that we have come a long way.
For anyone who is used to playing top graphic games on their PC's they may not see what the fuss is about.
So this (3D) technology all depends on the eye of the beholder.
Fun, elementary, but the green shoots look good!
The shoot em up game was fun, some games needed a handset.
Does anyone have any recommendations to add the list?
Just to confirm to the phone compatibility it just has to be Android and have a gyro sensor? I know NFC is handy to auto start the app etc but not necessary.
In which case the new 2014 Moto G should be ok is that right?
Thanks
Tuscany dive is probably the best one I've tred because you can move around, it's fun telling people to find the door and go upstairs and look out over the balcony. I also reccommend the rollercoaster one becasue its amusing watching people sway and almost lose balance.
Yep, mine came yesterday - a bit longer to arrive than I was hoping, but at least it arrived. It was in great condition, the lenses are as clear as I could have hoped for. It's a great laugh, kept me entertained for about 30 mins :)

Apparently its awesome when using the oculus rift!

Will give this a go with my OR :D
