Real VR terror:

Hearing the sound of depth charges being dropped into the water above you while your hull starts to creak from the pressure of diving below them.

There's a Spring VR Sale or somesuch going on on Steam right now. Nothing earth-shattering but most things are marked down a good 25-30%.

I bought the Star Trek one in the sale, have yet to try it yet.

However what I have tried is:

Iron Wolf - Awesome sub game with some really nice room scaling. Can be pretty hard but really enjoyable with friends (I played with Timbre and a buddy)
Pavlov - Basically CS:GO in VR, pretty fun, but as with most VR pretty hard to aim weapons that take two hands (as you don't have the physical link between the two controllers like a solid weapon would)
VR Chat - basically what second life should have been. Fun, stupid, chat stuff with a bunch of other loosers you like. Its a good free screw around.
Elite Dangerous - HOLY SHIT THIS TOTALLY CHANGES THE GAME. Like seriously ED in VR is another level. Because theres this sudden sense of scale and depth to the cockpits and everything the immersion is 10 fold more. Sitting in my DBX cockpit in VR after years playing normally feels like Im playing a different game. Honestly it was one of my favorite experiences because I know the game so well and this totally changed it.

No, the sub layout is broken down in a way that you don't need much room at all. I think it can be played sitting too.

It's one of the best room-scale experiences I've played, they did a great job of detailing the individual compartments and placing things around for you to use. Co-ordinating with the pilot from inside engineering to raise the snorkel, switch back from battery to the diesel engine, start sucking in more reserve air, while balancing the engine's output and coolant flow is a fuckin' trip.

Good game. Like PAS said the more the merrier.

most games don't really need a big play area, tbh

like when I'm in a dorm room I just move my chair over and I have enough space to extend my arms and not walk and I've never had a game I couldn't play

"roomscale" is a stupid term

You can just pirate a DAW or use something open-source like Ardour which accepts VST's.

>complaining a cheap $120 student guitar and $200 beginner SS amp costs too much when you dropped thousands of dollars on a VR rig and a computer to support it so you can waggle your arms around to music instead

yeah okay

I saw a recommendation for a VR god game called Tethered the other day and I read the reviews (mostly positive) and most people were calling it a VR Black and White.
Most people are idiots as turns out...

Read my review here if you wish. But the long and short of it is that it's nothing like BW, and its overall a bit shit.

Anything similar to H3VR in the way of being a physics sandbox?

Closest thing I found is Kingspray Graffiti, which is more about painting shit. I think I posted a masterpiece a page back in it

any other gamers with vr here have any opinons on the rift vs vive? like I heard the touch controlers were better but is the base vive that much better than the rift that the controller makes a difference? or does the controller not realy matter at all? I would think it would being the main thing in vr you do

probably asked a million times already but too lazy to search thread for it

Nothing full-body yet. With the Vive you can buy three additional sensor pods for about $100 each and put one on each foot and one in the small of your back. It enables the system to make a pretty damn good approximation of full-body VR though.

Anyone ITT have a stock they would recommend? I'm looking at getting one 3D printed for shooty games but wondered if there was a solution people have tried and loved.

It's not as clunky as big screen (though I don't think it has a desktop mirror mode), and you can move the screen about a lot easier than whirlygig - a really nice feature is that you can twist the rotation of the screen so if you wanted to lay on your side whilst watching a movie you can

Oh yeah, it's free on the rift store at the moment, might be on steam too

Word. I have Whirligig and just recently got DROPVr or whatever it's called.

I sat through a little thing so I could get permission to use my local library's 3D printer.
I'm thinking about printing up one of these:

But it looks like it could take hours of sitting there watching it print. Meh.
