So @GratchSabbat got us an early Xmas present and sprung for a Vive. I just set it up last night on my rig. After a couple little weird quirks I got some of the games and stuff working. So far, I’m liking it. It does make me feel a little motion sickness but that might have been because I just today figured out how to expand the googles to accommodate my glasses. I haven’t done much with it so far but a couple of games are good. King Kaiju is you as a monster bashing on a simple city. Mindless destruction. But Hover Junkers looks neat as it solves a lot of the motion issues. You only have so much play space to use and using a controller to move and not actually moving is one of the things that attribute to motion sickness. They got around that by having a shooter where you are in a moving floating platform. That platform is defined by your play space. Then when you move, you’re moving the platform and it doesn’t feel so jarring. But you still have the ability to bob and weave within your platform.
Overall, I like it. It makes for an interesting gaming experience. I plan on moving my rig downstairs to the big screen for a while until I upgrade the HTPC to run VR too. The living room has much more space to move around in.
Anyone else play with it? Pro’s, con’s… recommendations for games or apps?
