Bought one on Bleak Friday, awesome!! The Netflix and YouTube are brilliant and you can stream films from your PC with Moonplayer.
Just spotted Daedalus is currently £2.29 https://www.oculus.com/experiences/go/1246280708824029 so worth grabbing
Thats amazing for the controller, my friend has no problem with his either but mine drains so fast I have to take them out after each session.
sounds about right, mine can just about do 2.5 hour 3d film, not really played games for more than an hour in one sitting, but impressed with how long AA battery lasts in controller too, same one been in for over 1.5 months so far
You did well to get 3 hours out of it. Depends what app you are running on the device and how bright the screen is etc etc. Some people have reported less than 2 hours for some games. I’ve never heard of anyone getting 3 hours out of it, I would say 2.5 hours for video on low brightness and 2ish playing games.
still working just got a referal code from reddit working fine
You can, but you need to use a VPN. Then if you do get the credit it’ll be in dollars and I’m not sure if you’ll be able to spend it easily.
Decided to take the plunge and try it. Code from subreddit worked but it took for a couple of days to finally nab a working one. Will UK users be able to send out referral codes to receive software credit too?
Worked great. Got a referral from the megathread on a subreddit.
or 2 diagonally according to the box i ticked when buying.
Requires 3 sensors apparently.
Great deal! Thanks (y)
I own Superhot VR on Steam I did not purchase it from Oculus store unfortunately so cannot get Lone Echo for £19.49.
Paid full price for both last week after waiting 3 months for the to go on offer. How rubbish is that!... Anyone know how long this deal will last? I can still refund lone echo (haven't touched it) and buy for £20 again. Might have to wait for the refund to cone through before I can purchase it again though. Hot deal
Lone Echo is a great game.
+Heat - VR games rarely get good discounts, shame they have to be bought together, but still a great deal.
Lone Echo shows that proper games can be done in VR. By proper I mean with a story and has an actual point. SuperHot of course is always brillant but doesn't have to be played in VRt.
Erh.. sort of. At the time I only had a GTX 970 & a I5 2500K, it worked OK until you go outside the station then my frame rates took a nose dive. I upgraded my PC on Black Friday and had another quick go outside the station and it looked amazing, also ran smooth as butter. Gonna restart from the beginning when I get the chance. You can tell it's a AA VR game tho.
Did you ever get round to playing it :)
No I haven't played it yet. I did take the plunge and purchased it before but not had a chance to play it yet. I do understand where you're coming, I've just be jaded by a few poor quality full priced vr games in the past. I'll let you know what I think after I've managed to try it.
Have you played it though? Not asking in a snotty way, but I paid full price RRP for this a while back and it was worth it even then at the higher price. It is head and shoulders above anything else I have played in terms of being "the VR experience". Nothing has come close since for me on the Rift, which is a shame. Not that it matters, but it also took me way longer than 5 hours, and the polish on the game is mental with no filler or stupid time stretches. Took me about 5 evenings, and value wise I put it better than any film I've gone to see at the cinema in recent years. It has a good story that is well acted, it's graphically superior to 99% of VR titles, and the controls are (eventually) totally immersive. I have Skyrim VR, Elite, Payday 2, Project Cars 2 etc and other almost "endless" playtime titles, but this is the one where I felt no compromises have been made.
This is worth the money, I still try to justify VR experiences at around £5 an hour which this fits into. Most people are happy to pay this hourly rate to go and see that latest film at the cinema
Good spot, I own it on steam myself but some people prefer to use the oculus store if they have an Oculus Rift.
Sorry meant to amend the title. It is for the oculus rift and it is part of the oculus library not steam.
https://www.cdkeys.com/pc/games/batman-arkham-vr-pc-steam-cd-key £3:49 for the steam key here. Rift, VIVE and WMR owners get to play it.
Can you play this on the Samsung Gear VR by Oculus?? or only through Steam??
We all have a backlog, so, yup! I still have DoomVFR, Arktika, Wilson's Heart, Talos Principle and more.
Wait 7 months to save 4 quid, now that's frugality to the max :D
Ta, I'll wait till then, still got elite and doom (which I'm finding pretty hard!) for my VR needs
Yes mate you will need revive thats a free download and runs oculus games for the vive, revive runs with the steam vr panel or you can use vive port which has both my steam and oculus library's and will runs games with no special program.
If you have the patience to wait, it'll be much cheaper at Xmas. I picked it up for £3.99 during the last xmas sale.
Agreed. Demoing is best. Really hoping LIV gets Oculus SDK support, or better yet, Oculus / Vive get official implementation to support mixed reality recordings. They definitely give a better indication of what it's like, but even then, like the difference between watching a footy match on ITV Vs being in the stadium
I don't think standard videos do any VR games justice TBH. Far too immersive for a video to reflect on a flat screen.
My wife said yes to a PC gamer, she knew what she was getting herself into haha. We have 2 living rooms, the key to all successful marriages (lol) But yes I can see how Elite Dangerous can engulf your life, so immersive in VR. Videos really don't do it justice. When you are sitting in your ship, it looks huge and the Galaxy is just there in front of you like a big black sea of intrigue. It's amazing.
I hope you've said a proper farewell to your wife and family. Actually most players do emerge after a couple of hundred hours playing - but only to order an upgraded graphics card.
Fraid not man.
Is this deal still available? Can't see anything about £75 credit on the website so I assume it is not?
Done that! And tried to put my controller down on the table in front of me.
Any chance that argos will match this deal?
Go into your local game.. you can rent one for a fiver for half hour.. they had a good selection of games/experiences to try as well
Any one interested in buying new oculus go 32gb
Superhot works so well in VR, not too demanding graphically, makes great use of tracking for those matrix moments when you are dodging a bullet and can be consumed in small chunks...
superhot is amazing in VR
Do it now.... try beat saber....
Similar situation for me. VR pulled me back in. Been a massive shooter fan and Pavlov VR has got me gripped ATM. I can highly recommend that if you don't already own it. I'm sure it's only £7. Plenty of user generated maps and people have recreated maps from Halo and CoD etc. It feels incredible shooting people in a map you have already spent hours in years ago!
I did wonder if there was a good reason to buy it on Oculus store but grabbed it from Steam with cdkeys code. Oh well from what I gather now it works fine just need to set default audio device to rift. Live and learn. :)
Good price. Personally I'd rather pay the extra couple quid to play through Oculus but that's just me.
Steam version is currently £12.37 @ GMG with code: BOTR25. (Though it was £10.80 fairly recently). Worth noting that version doesn't use the Oculus SDK. Apparently they have separate multiplayer servers though you can crossplay with a friend using their IP address.
This is a lot of fun. Heat added.
Great game. Heat.
Could be fun, DJ'ING live on twitch or YouTube 😃 besides I got £4.99 left from that oculus balls up a while back.
Yeah I'm kinda tempted. Imagine it being quiet fun to tinker with :D
Bought this earlier, can't wait to try it. The developer seems fairly active and is still adding new features.
I have a GearVR for what it is, very impressive. However once you move to the next level such as an Oculus and you have hand interaction in the environment it really feels good.
No, this is room scale and you paint with your hands via the controllers.
Unreal that mate. Honestly problem is with VR is people watch stuff like that and because they see head movement they think that's it's like in 2D. But when the headset is on and you're within that environment with proper depth perception there's nothing better. I've had people who have tried psvr and gearVR who said it's terrible. I fired up robo recall and they are then interested In how much everything costs. Superhot VR is another example on what sets people off. I've had some many people saying VR is bad but when I put them in the game their opinion changes very quickly :D
Actually this is really what can be done with this software if you have some talent >
Would this app work with the gear VR?
I will wait till the do a massive drop on price :)
I did not like my experience with oculus support. I reported a problem with my rift and they asked me to send it back to them after exchanging emails for couple of weeks. They wrote to me that once they get my rift back they will immediately send me refurbished unit and investigate mine rift. Refurbished? Shock !!!! Horrror !!!! I asked them whether they could just repair mine or give me a new one as mine rift was 4 months old so I did not like idea if refurbished unit as mine was in immaculate condition and I have heard that some people got refurbished unit with scratches or they developed other problem after short time. Unit should be repaired or they should send you a new one. I hope that you will have better experience with support.
Well, they got back to me. They've asked for an address, though they surely already have those details... and also photos of the serial numbers on the device and the box it came in. I just hope the replacement has no issues, because this is a pain in the a...
Hopefully persistently contacting support will get you a replacement. There are some DIY solutions for fixing 'stuck' pixels, but I'm sure you know the difference.
I wish I had waited for Amazon to have stock. Mine arrived with two dead pixels, the support is terrible. Sent them a picture, and have only received replies thanking me for my ''continued patience'' as they ''continue to investigate''. Would have had a returns label same day, and a replacement the day after, from Amazon. Plenty of others have dead pixels judging from the forums and Reddit.
Maybe they do but pinball FX2 isn't one of them :( I compared the 2 side by side and the oculus store one runs better on my rig at least. Battlezone & Arizona Sunshine are other examples of games which use steamvr on the rift on the steam one. I wish steam store was more open about whether a game fully supports the rift or uses the steamvr wrapper
Great spot - would have missed this.
I've never liked pinball on PC or consoles but i thought i'd give this a try at this price. Wow this is better than the real thing.
Sometimes the Steam versions don't use the Oculus SDK, even when they do you may have to add a command line or launch parameter. Depending on your hardware the extra performance overhead can be noticeable.
Just to clarify, the DLC tables are available on the Oculus version but I don't think they are ever discounted. The table are not cross-platform so it's just something to be aware of when choosing where to buy the base game. For reference, earlier this month the Steam versions were reduced to: Base Game - £4.39 Season 1 - £9.49 The Walking Dead - £2.39
It's been one of the VR games I regularly go back to. It's a pretty good workout and although there's little variation and no depth - It's still fun.
Or spice :/
Probably stoned out of his mind. ;)
I have tried the latter, rather than a fight, it almost ended up as a Cuckold type scenario :S
You can get a realistic experiance, all you have to do is go into a bar, take a sip out of someone's drink alternatively you can go up to someone's wife and ask her for the succy succy long time
Can anyone install games - I keep getting errors
I'm partnered up with hurk and his mam. Lethal them two but if it's missions you need to save something ie. A helicopter, you've had it. I've had to get rid of them both on some missions. Far cry 5 is going down legendary for me along with creed origins. Ubisoft has come out of nowhere to become my favourite devs/Publishers. I don't even mind Uplay :D
I am currently addicted to Far Cry 5 and in love with Boomer. I want a Boomer game now.
Nice one, thanks for that
Get that rift back out of that box! 8) There's been some amazing games released over the last year. Mines been tied up for a few weeks mind, due to creed origins and far cry 5, but can't wait to get stuck back in :D
I actually haven't, I didn't think it was possible?
Do we know when the store sales will end?
Anywhere doing the £50 credit with any discount on the £399 price? eg Currys have 5% quidco but no mention of this deal
Have you actually tried using it? Apart from the onscreen warning it ran fine on my old GTX760.....
I'd try and get a cheap 970 to set up your rift, they are sometimes £130 You should contact Facebook about when the offer expires to claim your games.
This is fantastic. Well worth 6quid.
I spent a couple of hours playing this at EGX a couple of years ago. I couldn't put it down until I finished it. It was on a 14" monitor and I thought it was brilliant then. In VR it must be amazing.
It's a strange game this, although excellent. I really enjoyed it.
Oh, I'm getting this. Thanks. Must admit, since getting my rift a few weeks ago, I've bought more games than I've played.... Thank you preschool son and 5 week old baby
