First proper day I've managed to spend with the quest.  Chucked on some custom songs , played that for a while .

 

Done a Few levels in robo recall as well , it's a great game ! I never got far on my rift version as cables pissed me off.

 

Tried rec room for a bit , didn't do too much though.

 

Charging it back up as have a friend who wants to have a go later with it.

 

Would love to get super hot but dont think I can justify buying it again.

Just got my Quest! So far it feels like a step up from PSVR because of the lack of cables. It's amazing how much the faff of setting up the PSVR detracts from the experience.

 

Can't wait to make a proper start on Beat Saber tonight (never played it on PSVR). Mind if I add a few of you folk to my friends list?

So it's the fast versions of the songs that are sounding particularly distorted and rubbish on Beat Saber. 

 

That Pop/Stars one a good example. It's crap through the speakers, but fine through the headphones that came with my PSVR.

 

Do the fast versions sound noticeably shit for anyone else?

Was going to order this a couple of weeks ago and saws John Lewis had it in stock.  Waited for a day and they were sold out and now everywhere is!  

 

Have ordered from Scan but delayed until 28th June :o

 

Ebay vultures in full flow with 64gb up for £500-600.

 

oh well will just have to read about in on here until end of June!  

 

Keep to the game recommendations coming!

Oculus themselves seem to be the best place to order from from what I’ve read/heard. Might be worth taking a look?

Thanks, they are 28th too.  Scan give 24 months interest free via PayPal so thought would through that since the date seems to be the same.

Vader immortal wasnt bad , bit basic but enjoyed it. Probably the perfect length for an episode ( I started getting a bit of a headache).  

 

Personally think it's a little expensive for what it is- I cant see me playing through it again.

I’ve been really enjoying this. Beat Saber is pretty amazing all in all, but also games like super hot and shadow point are playing to the cable-less strengths of the device. 

 

Im also going through a few games in PSVR and the hassle factor in setting that up is worlds away.

Had a bit of a play on Beat Saber earlier, some of @jonamok's scores are insane. I stopped though as at least once a song I was getting a miss because it was loosing the tracking on the controller. Not saying I would have been perfect without it but it's so annoying, and I know that I'm conciously trying to work out what postitions it might be in that are causing it to lose tracking, which means I'm then not playing as freely as I'd like.

 

I don't know if it's a lighting issue or a controller battery losing connection issue. I mean obviously the Quest should be able to handle it as I've seen videos of people perfecting expert plus songs, and you guys are getting great scores as well so I'm wondering what's going on. It's annoying me enough to make me not bother going to scores at the moment, which is a shame.

Started Superhot VR last night. I never finished the rift version so it will be nice playing back through it. I kinda feel it isn't as accurate picking items up sometimes, maybe it's something to do with the sensors i don't know. Still, great fun though.

 

Face Your Fears 2 seems to be alright, although i have gotten stuck in a section and don't have a clue what to do! Anyone playing that?

I’m going through a similar transition. I’m trying to not swing backwards much now to see if keeping the controller more in front will help things.

It's all about the angle, you have to swipe from 90 degrees to at least 60 degrees the other side, and then you get bonus for how central to the block your swipe is.

 So when swiping a down block you want to come from the saber point directly upwards to almost downwards and through the centre of the block to get max score. I find it really hard to get a decent score when swiping upwards as you have to really bend you wrist and get you elbow over you hand to point the saber directly down.

 

I think the centrality (is that even a word) only accounts for a max of 15 points of the 115.

I've created a google sheet for people to add usernames and what stuff they're playing (I expect this to be full of Beat Saber!)

 

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1YTbV_yvJtieDx7-RDcudzKMCs9jUD8XUY92xDKqmrZA/edit?usp=sharing

 

I've added in everyone from this page (I think) already.

 

@Paulando - could you add to the first post please?

 

Done!
