My wife got me the Oculus for my birthday last month. All I have to the naysayers is... VR is here, people. Quirks and caveats included, this is what we have all dreamed about since seeing ads for the virtual boy in the 90's. This is what video games were meant to be. Sure there are some things that could be ironed out. especially wireless. But the wire is not that bad, and actually serves to keep the back of your mind grounded in reality. Lack of software? No way. There are tons of free and paid games that are great, and honestly the purchase would STILL be worth it if Robo Recall were the only app available. Waiting for Gen 2? No need. The only thing that could make Gen 2 better (besides wireless) is higher res screens, and that only to help with text in the "virtual desktop" type apps. If you use apps created specifically for VR, they all work around the resolution with larger fonts, etc. And even then, we have to wait until graphics hardware is up to snuff to run two 4k screens.... Think Oculus roomscale isn't any good? I can tell you from experience that if you set it up correctly it tracks perfectly, even with two sensors, and even outside the "recommended" specs for room size, etc. Too expensive? Well... that's really the only valid argument lol... But seriously, if you're the type of person who spent 700 bucks on a high end graphics card, there is absolutely no reason not to skip the next latest and greatest and put it toward VR. You'll get FAR more value out of a VR headset than you will with that extra 20 fps in 2D games (which for most of you is already faster than your monitor refresh rate anyway.... but that's another pet peeve discussion altogether....) Motion sickness? Not as long as your graphics card can maintain 90fps (and my 980ti does it flawlessly, so all you 10XX users will be fine.)

So, TL;DR.... Just do it. It's amazing, and it's exactly what you've been dreaming of for years. It's here, it's real. Take the plunge. Because for me, gaming will never be the same. VR is so much higher of an experience than 2D games have ever tried to be.

Sure, lol. I didn't even realize there was a clubhouse for it until just now, but I'm definitely going to read through the thread. Any good tips/tricks/reviews to be found back there?

I am currently designing a simple overhead gantry system for my cables, so I'll share a build log of sorts once I actually physically do it.

EDIT: also, username is the same in Oculus, if anyone wants to add me for multiplayer. I love me some Arizona Sunshine and Rec Room, and would love to play them multiplayer.

Virtual reality game Star Trek: Bridge Crew brings together up to four players, each taking a different role on the bridge of a starship.

http://cdn.edgecast.steamstatic.com/steam/apps/256685949/movie_max.webm?t=1496247451
Yea, I've been watching this game closely. The best part I think is the multi platform support between PS4, CV1, and Vive. I'll probably pick this up over the weekend. Also, there is a Discord for ST:BC http://discord.me/startrekbridgecrew.

Ordered my third sensor directly from Oculus the other day. It came in yesterday evening, and they even threw in a 16 foot active USB extension cable. I had no idea that was included in the package, so it was an awesome surprise. It DOES cover more area effectively than two sensors, so it is definitely worth it. But to people who haven't taken the plunge yet, roomscale on Rift is still a perfectly acceptable experience with only two sensors. The only time the two sensor setup breaks down is when you have both sensors facing each other in opposite corners, and you end up in a "non sensor" corner facing away from both sensors. It can sometimes hide your hands, resulting in loss of tracking. That being said, this rarely happens, and I would have been totally happy even with two sensors. The third sensor is definitely worth it though, because with three it completely eliminates this caveat.

I never thought much about it, but I got the gear VR w/ controller free with my S8+ and I actually really enjoy it. Yeah, some stuff sucks, but some is very good, I've actually jumped and even yelled a few times. Maybe I'll step up to the Vive eventually, but I have to say the Oculus store and menu is pretty easy. I just wish that when streaming your sessions that it actually LOOKED like what you are seeing.

Nice! Yea, that's the only down fall is trying to explain to some one how cool it is using flatware to show them. Also, do you want to join the club? If so, I'll add you. :toast:

Yeah, some stuff sucks, but some is very good, I've actually jumped and even yelled a few times. Maybe I'll step up to the Vive eventually, but I have to say the Oculus store and menu is pretty easy. I just wish that when streaming your sessions that it actually LOOKED like what you are seeing.

What controller do you have?

I also have the Gear VR for my S7 but I purchased a Steelseries BT controller for it.

Right now just the one that came with it. I have always struggled with dual stick controllers ....that's why I enjoy occasionally gaming

I have the 2016 black version and just bought the new Samsung motion controller for it. It's well worth the purchase.

EDIT: Added link to controller.

Yea, Dead and Buried is by far my favorite for Gear VR and the new controller.

Ok it seems as @Mindweaver mentioned I probably have the 2016 version as well, it came without a separate controller.:ohwell:

The steelseries controller is good but not every app/game supports it it seems...

Yea, that's a good controller and it will work with most of the controller games, but not games built just for the new Samsung Gear VR controller like Dead and Buried. It's worth the purchase and I've enjoyed it.
