man if that Vive pro launched with the Knuckles and the new tracking boxes it would be like the first launch day of VR all over again. Not sure what this talk about selling the headset separate way before the package, alto of people do not own a vive... I think they should wait for Knuckles is ready before selling and have a full and complete set just like they did for vive 1 that would be the most explosive news for VR.

Sadly no knuckles with the Vive Pro.  Apparently they are going to have an updated version of the Vive wands though (when they release the full kit).

Well, there went almost 5 hours of my life.  Itís incredible a system I bought so many years ago is capable of all that.

Still working up the nerve to play Resident Evil.  That space station zombie game demo was already crazy intense.

Maybe get some Depends before you try that one  :lol

The whole time I played it, it felt like someone was twisting a butter knife in my gut.   Good stuff!

Well, watching a creature in 3D that's chasing you around with the intent to kill you, even though you know it's not real, is quite an experience.  I'll admit I was wrong about this current generation of VR.  Previously, I had only seen the setups with the cameras on tripods and someone walking around an alien planet bored out of their minds on a square waving around wands.  I was in a swivel office chair and there were moments I completely lost myself in the various games.

I imagine these setups will be wireless soon, but I felt like the graphic capabilities were far enough along that the developers can focus on convincing game play.

I had a similar feeling playing both Paranormal Activity and Narcosis.  Horror games just have this overly uncomfortable feeling in VR, almost like they are too immersive at times.

TPCast has been available for the Rift/Vive for a little bit now, and HTC has revealed their own wireless solution for release later this year.

I suspect in the next-gen of VR headsets wireless could become the norm.

I think Moss on PS VR Demo Disc 2 was the most mind blowing.  I was on the last puzzle, where you have to spin a tall vertical cylinder around, and I was trying to figure out how it worked.  So I leaned forward and looked around the edge... and saw inside the cylinder.  It was freaking unreal.  Making that mouse run around, with very convincing graphics, caused several moments of disassociation.

Tiny Trax had a similar moment when I looked down and saw my car racing around underwater where my feet should have been.

And the first space zombie attack on The Persistence.  Genuine fear.

Stuff like Thumper and Rez... eh... cool but felt like they'd get old quick.  The Call of Duty Jackal thing was fun.

Youtube VR was pretty neat.  Enjoyed the Bjork Stonemilker video.  A lot of the other stuff got a, "meh, I've been to the Omni theater before" reaction.


Looking forward to those Move controllers arriving....

I've noticed one every month now for a few months.  Hopefully, it's now a "thing"!

I canít  make it 5 minutes in Resident Evil.  Iíve introduced my wife and two friends to the headset and everyone is in shock.  Nobody looks cool playing it, though.

Resident evil is excruciating at first. I played thru the first hour in normal (non vr) mode to get a heads up on the jump scares then restarted it in Vr. Still shook me. Insane experience and not one you can easily describe until youíve played it.

TLDR: a totally different experience. And one i didnít expect to grab me like it did.

Thought you wierdos might get some use out of this. 

https://www.amazon.com/Acer-AH101-D8EY-Windows-Wireless-Controllers/dp/B075PVLN2P/ref=pd_sim_147_1?tag=slickdeals&ascsubtag=516ab4b6f9c311e7aeedeef2e093f6790INT&_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B075PVLN2P&pd_rd_r=RXPBY38275WTNACZD4KW&pd_rd_w=SOrWQ&pd_rd_wg=hLkwD&psc=1&refRID=RXPBY38275WTNACZD4KW

Not top shelf, but 1440 per eye and around 200 bucks, controllers included.  If it gets below 150 I might buy one just for the two or three things a vr headset is actually useful for.  (Vr pinball, racing games, ect.)
