What a great jog down memory lane! I think Gamespy may have been my first ever online purchase of anything, ever. That plus some of the mainstays at the time like mplayer and David Wright (crt) of Rocket Arena fame. RA has gotta be one of my favorite mods of all time.

Chronos was a launch day purchase for me when I bought my Oculus and stands out as one of my favorites on that platform.. It's a souls-like game with a lot of atmosphere, but was nowhere near as difficult.

I loved Nioh 1 on my PC and when Nioh 2 came out, bought a PS4 Pro specifically for the game. It is exceptional and I've put an unhealthy amount of hours into it already.

No, that would be Outlast. Behind that I'd say Shalebridge Cradle in Thief Deadly Shadows . I know a lot of people stopped playing Outlast because it was scaring the shit out of them. Same with me. I probably got halfway through before I needed to stop.
Ha, I agree with this. I finished Outlast in 9 hours and was actually relieved when it wrapped up.

This really looks great. I particularly liked the gun play in the 3rd video. What was up with the player in the first videos swaying around like they just drank two pitchers of beer though? I assume that's just the way we play in VR, but dang they were bobbing and weaving.

If you use uBlock Origins and you should, go to page, click on uBlock, bottom right "Disable Javascript", refresh and fixed going forward. Or get a javascript blocking addon.

Many of the threads in Steam speak of poorly optimized VR. Makes this a wait and see purchase for me.

I'm cautiously optimistic with every PB game I see. Loved the first two Gothic and Risen games enough to put this one on my watch list for now. I just checked my Steam account and see I purchased Risen 3 but never played it. Damn

The Pcars 2 review is well done. I haven't heard of the BabelTech page before but plan to keep an eye on it after this. Well done.

Also, I learned a lot about the new VR FPS tool that Nvidia released called FCAT VR: https://www.geforce.com/whats-new/guides/fcat-vr-download-and-how-to-guide

I've been struggling trying to figure out if my rig is producing enough FPS for the games that I play, but the tools are poor for this. I've used the Oculus Debug tools in the past, but they are not as helpful as I had hoped. The FCAT tool that Nvidia released is better though and I ended up resetting a lot of my performance settings back to lower settings after analyzing my FPS in the sun, rain, thunderstorm and snow.

My first impressions are good! I played for a couple of hours last night with my Oculus and it was fantastic. As someone that didn’t like the first PCars because of the crappy career mode, you would think that the I would have jumped into the new career early, but I didn’t. What I did was try my Logitech G27 with and without the Rift and both experiences were excellent. PCars 2 did a good job setting up the graphic performance based on my computer specs, so I didn’t futz with the settings much. I’m sure I will after I’ve had more time with the game though. The game auto-sensed my G27 wheel, so I just calibrated it in the game, added a button to reset the cockpit view and was off. I did not have to make any FFB tweaks either, which was a pleasant surprise.

The only changes I made from the defaults were to remove the helmet cam and jack up the Super Sampling from 1.0 to 2.0. The game looked a little blurry in my Rift when set to 1.0.

When launching the game from Steam, you can either launch normally, or select an option to boot into the Oculus or Vive mode.

Racing wise, I raced in a grid of 16 cars at Bathurst (Porsche 911 GT3, the road B one), Daytona with a full grid of stock cars, a rallycross in the rain and a point-to-point at the Azure Coast in the rain (Mercedes-Benz CLK). The last two in the rain were pretty impressive with huge rooster-tails spraying out behind the cars in from of me on the Azure coast.

I peeked in on the multi-player side of things and saw that there were options for dedicated servers and p2p but didn't make the time to race online.

I plan to look in on the career mode tonight.

I'm pretty pumped for this. My poor Oculus has been gathering dust waiting on another cockpit game, so please don't suck.

I liked the look, sound and feel of the last one a lot (and it's my goto game when I show off VR, along with Elite Dangerous), but couldn't for the life of me get into it. I think it was because everything was unlocked up front and there was no career mode to speak of, so I struggled to find ways to entertain myself. I apparently have no creativity. What I dig are the racing games that have a deep career mode and challenges and from what I have read, PCars 2 is better in this regard. Please be better!

I am chomping at the bit so bad for a new driving/racing game that adds VR. Codies did it with Dirt Rally, but then nada. Please add VR!
