Ah okay, no worries just saw it and thought someone might get involved
Heat from me anyways
This game alone, the public needs to be made aware off, because it is Awesome!!! If you can imagine being in that end fight scene of ‘I, Robot’ mixed with a bit of ‘BladeRunner’ with two awesome guns in your hip holsters and all in VR!
Damn, saw The I’Robot shooter and got excited then realised it’s a VR game.
Can this be played with the VR gun?

Staff don't work here on a weekend, they are pretty lazy. That's the rule though mate.
Glad they didn't remove it... I'd have missed it.

Thanks OP
This one of the few games that I felt less inclined to buy after playing the demo. I'm struggling to remember what movement options it had but I have this sense that I wasn't moving about very much (but that may just have been me) and it just felt like a pretty cold shooting gallery.

However, at this kind of price I'm probably going to grab it and give the full game a go. The dual-wielding pistols is always good and the reload mechanic was pretty cool. The praise the game seems to generally get makes me think that I didn't give it a fair chance, or that the full game is much better, or that I just didn't know what I was doing, or all three.

I'll give it another go I think.

I bought mine about 6 months ago, got hooked, then a game gave me severe motion sickness and have been too scared to play it again.
The only character I could use in this game was the ninja with the sword, all the other characters where a nightmare to control with the move controllers...still a decent game though, well worth £7.99

I was the same, but looked online for tips and it works. Basically, only play until you first start to feel sick then stop for the rest of the day (essential). Build it up and over a few days, I can now play Doom VFR for hours (I just do not get the chance) ;-)
I think that in about a week, I was not that effected anymore, just be patient and do not rush it!

That's reassuring, thanks! I'll give it a go to try and ease myself into it. My problem was probably that I jumped right into it. But I get travel sick in a car as soon as I try to read anything so I'm probably quite sensitive to motion sickness!

Sage words from @aidanaedy - be very aware of any incoming sick feelings and you'll be able to quit early and lessen the impact... I generally find that I can return in 15-30 mins if I catch it early.
I rarely get to play VR so I'm still quite sensitive to motion sickness, 2 years after buying!
I tend to avoid the worst offenders (RE7, RIGS, Starblood, etc).

Some games "help" by restricting your field of view while moving and others offer segment turning.
"Teleport" movement (Skyrim) is better than both of those but can spoil the immersion a bit.
Farpoint took a holistic approach and made every level a "corridor", where you don't actually have to turn with the analog stick - baddies that get past you jump back ahead of you so you never need to 180°

I'm less affected by movement in a vehicle (where you have a static frame of reference, like a dashboard) but I can only last 1 race on Wipeout, due to the excessive Z-axis movement.

I'd recommend starting with fixed environment games like Job Simulator, Rick & Morty, Batman, Statik, I expect you to die, Tumble VR, CoolPaintrVR, Star Trek Bridge Crew, then a few constantly moving games like REZ Infinite, Thumper, through to Dirt Rally VR, GT Sport and then on to z-axis with Eve Valkyrie, Battlefront X-Wing mission, Jackal Assault (free) before the less-queasy free-roam games like Farpoint and Skyrim VR.

Thanks, that's some great advice. Thought I'd bought a £250 paperweight. Bought the farpoint game and controller but been too scared to play it

You can turn with the stick in that game but I recommend you don't - your actual head movement should be enough.

This, moving you head is better, often I take it and I end looking at the wall instead of the TV when I first started lol

It's a really god game, played it months ago.

Thanks @aidanaedy & @BubaMan

I find VR quite exhausting, which probably isn't helped by the fact I only ever get to play late at night.

I don't think people suffering from motion sickness are necessarily affected by the same games. E.G. Wipeout and Thumper don't bother me at all but the Transference demo made me almost hurl. So it's worth trying out a few games to see what works (or doesn't) for you.

I would also suggest avoid playing VR before bed or if you are feeling tired, it can exacerbate motion sickness symptoms much more quickly.

Similarly games with any lateral motion (i.e. Battlezone, RE7, Robinsons, Skyrim) can also cause severe motion sickness - for anyone starting out I would always suggest turning off smooth turning and keep to teleportation where possible at least until you have your 'VR Legs'. It takes time but eventually most people can get used to it.

I am hoping the VR scene is here to stay - I am loving the extra immersion it brings and I couldn't imagine playing RE7 or Wipeout without VR now.
Just played the demo. I couldn't get on with it. Aiming with the move controllers was problematic as well as tying to actually face the enemies. I recommend trying the demo before buying (it's on demo disc 2).

I just had a load of fun playing the demo. Thanks for pointing out it's on the demo disc. Think I didn't bother playing before due to move controllers not being charged so I missed out. I played standing up which I think added to the realism.
Bought. Feels like the first time I've actually been immersed in a virtual world rather than just playing a game in 3D. Going back to real world taking some adjustment!
