There are only three kinds of virtual reality game.
Every Kind of VR Game:
1. Stuff that would be boring in real life.
Cube Drone: Wow! It's like I'm really playing Billiards!
2. Weird fetish stuff

Cube Drone: I'm not sure what 'cat-kin group cuddles' means, but I feel like I have made a mistake in coming here.
3. Games with motion
A space ship: Space, the final BLEUUUGH
I get sick easily in VR.
My Vive finally arrived, and it was pretty easy to set up
For room scale VR with the Vive, you will need a space at least two metres wide.
Place the lighthouses 5 meters apart, pointed at 35 degrees. Your GPU shader buffer must be set from "anisotropic" to "apocrypha".
The headset unit will blink white if the setup ritual has succeeded, at which point it will pulsate with maddening intensity.
You will need to update the firmware. Use the enclosed packet of goat's blood to paint a sigil to Ha'Atu the all-seeing.
Cube Drone, his eyes bleeding, with a VR headset on: It's... so beautiful.
HTC accepts no responsibility should you accidentally summon an intra-dimensional chaos god, ushering in a new dark age for humanity.
Cineveo is okay! The head-location based navigation is pretty cool. It puts your head way closer to the screen, though. I don't usually watch TV like this.
I wanted to take full advantage of the 3D capabilities, so I acquired a 9GB full-3D version of the Lego Movie. It looked great, but the primary audio track wasn't the English track - so I'd have to recompile the mkv file if I wanted to watch the movie in English.
It's starting to dawn on me how antisocial the Oculus really is. I don't generally watch movies alone.
Getting the oculus to fit on a cube is no easy task.
So, my Oculus Rift DK2 arrived a little while ago.
I was working when it arrived, so I couldn't try it right away.
It looks pretty cool, although cables are everywhere.
And I had to try it on three different computers (reading every forum article and suggested fix for about six hours) before I could get it to work.
The torturous wait to try out new technology is only eclipsed by how bored you are with that technology one week later.
