I was fine with the first one, right up until 'Oh Warpers and Blood Kelp.' Also would have liked more effective Leviathan deterrents. Might have to poke at it again now that I got a Rift... though debating on a better headset to get.
Ouch, Dash, the Rift is already AOL. Facebook/Oculus is dropping it. Unlike the Quest 2, which they support greatly. I switched from a Rift to the Quest 2 and it's a world of difference playing my PC games wireless. The Quest 2 now officially supports wireless PC gaming with Air Link, but the Virtual Desktop workaround is still better.
You need a dedicated 5ghz SSID only to be used by your Quest 2 or it will be a stutter fest. But if you fix yourself a dedicated SSID like that, in the same room where you play, and your PC is connected to your router with a LAN cable... then it's party time. Zero issues. I am relatively speaking one of only a handful of VR players who experienced Alyx on a wireless VR set, and it's the best. Somehow ppl pay 1k+ for other, wired headsets. Not smart.
Eh. I got it from a friend for like 150 [with extra sensors], and I'm planning on either the new Reverb, or something else. Not sure I want to get a Quest2 or anything else tied to facebook. [Yes, I got a rift, but for some weird reason, I apparently had an Occulus account, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ] Cabling doesn't bother me all that much, as I have a hanging hook setup with retractable cords to use. Not sure if my router has 5ghz to split for that, if I went that route, but its somethin to look into. As for the cost, yeah. 1k$ for a wired headset is freaking ridiculous. The Index should have dropped sub-800$ at this point, though I'm curious on their next one thats supposedly wireless, and balanced MUCH better on the head.
I use the Rift so I can at least get my brain calibrated for VR use. Got all pukey trying VR Chat the first few times, and even now it makes me feel wibbly, but Alyx I'm fine with. So not sure if its a refresh rate or somethin...
I'm also kind of curious if one of the VR hardware makers decides to do like a wireless box, straight through usb3, rather than having to go through the router.
