  1. I cant see a thread about this.

     

    Session is a skateboarding simulation game currently in development by crea-ture Studios.  Its being funded on kickstarter and there is a playable alpha.

     

    Its very much a simulation with some interesting mechanics, for example you carve (steer) with the triggers.

     

    I was a massive Skate fan, indeed played a fair bit with people on here like Big Gus and boozy.

     

    I am happy to report that the alpha is impressive.  Takes a bit of getting used to but I am now really enjoying it and busting some sick lines :)

     

    The devs seem really into it and are fairly active on social media including the reddit sub.

     

    Check it out.  

     

     

     

  2. I have recently bought Jump, End Space, Fusion Wars and Wands.

     

    Jump is great.  A bit sparse but the jumping mechanic is solid.  You do feel a bit like a super hero.

    End Space is amazing.  

    Fusion Wars is good fun.  The sliding mechanic takes a bit of getting used to.  Single player may be a bit limited, I have yet to try coop

    I haven't tried Wands yet but its meant to be good.

     

    I also hooked up with a few of the rifters (hai @Fox @Sponge @Strategos ) to try Alt Space and it worked great.  They obviously had more fun being able to flip me the bird with their fancy hand presence but was still a great laugh.

     

    I am getting some overheating so have also taken to strapping a gel ice pack to the front of the headset.  its not a good look!

    The Gear VR is very impressive, but I have a problem where I can only use it for a few minutes before the lenses start fogging up & no amount of adjusting the straps appears to help.

     

    I'm still on the lookout for a solution, but i'm pretty sure it's a problem that only happens to a minority of people.

     

    Warm it up with a hair dryer for a few minutes before use.

    How do you get Steam VR working and what can you do?

     

    Sorry I never saw this.  I use Riftcat.  It allows steam to recognise the GearVR as a connected HMD.  There are some limitations:

     

    You need a fast wireless network (5G) or you can fudge a tethered connection with some right angled micro USB cables

    You are limited to games that don't require touch/wand controllers (so mainly older rift games).  I think you can use some third party controllers like razor hydras but I have never tried.

    There is some tracking jitter specifically to the Gear VR (It also works with any cardboard set up).  The devs are looking into this.

     

    Basically its fun to try but the experience is quite limited.

    I think I am going to go for Arizona Sunshine - if you are a Humble Monthly sub you get another 10% off the list price and I want to buy it to support the devs who have to deal with moaning dickheads about partnering up with intel. 

     

    I think this has been an ongoing theme with VR with people moaning about financial partnerships and exclusive deals. In an ideal world we wouldn't have them, but guess what - there is fuck all VR market and it will be almost impossible for most devs to even consider making VR games for a tiny market without some form of risk aversion strategy or incentive. Do you want no VR games and all of your internet reddit mob pleased then so be it?

     

    Really good article about that from Polygon (lol) here

     

    http://www.polygon.com/2016/12/8/13891322/vr-funding-oculus-vive

     

     

     

     

    To be fair this wasn't your standard exclusivity deal.  They time restricted certain parts of the game to only work on very specific processors, and did not make it clear anywhere in the purchase process.  the speed with which they back peddled means are either super responsive to feedback or they knew they were being cheeky.

     

  6. Saw it in game today whilst in town.  Caved in and paid my fiver.  I played BattleZone and it was incredible.  the sense of immersion and how real the cockpit felt really blew me away.
