Is OMG amazing. (I sound like my daughter typing that) but damn...I just played about an hour and I wish I didn't have to go to bed for work. This game is...incredible.

Visually this game is stunning. This is what VR is all about. This is why I purchased the Oculus. Now I just have to get through the work day so I can go home and play it some more.

I definitely want to play "Lone Echo". Its probably number one on my list. Number two is Gunheart. Currently I can make due with "Echo Arena". I don't want to buy "Lone Echo" right now because its only available through Oculus.

I would rather buy games from Steam because I am thinking long term and I don't necessarily trust that playing such Oculus titles down the line will be easy. Especially so if my second gen or third gen VR HMD isn't from Oculus,...

Shouldn't be a problem I've since upgraded my video card.

Yeah, its a bit confusing because I was trying to put in the specs for two different systems and have not updated it in a while.

I've since updated it to a GTX 760 and now its running with a Gigabyte GTX 1060 6GB card. That's roughly the equivalent of a GTX 980. It performs fairly well with the Oculus Rift and I'm quite pleased with the entire setup overall.

Side note, I've always thought that the minimum spec for Oculus Rift was a GTX 970 and that as time goes on new games might force that upwards. However, I've come across some documentation that suggested that a GTX 960 was the minimum,.....which seems ridiculous!
