There was so much good stuff at the end of the last page (and in general) it's a shame to switch to this one but oh well, VR keeps on giving, news is news is :longswordblob:

Anyone know of any escape room VR games that can be played in MP. Preferrably quest, but anything is technically fine.

Dunno. Rolling Line is another you might wanna check and decide on (model trains).

This search might help but not much, they really should make escape room a tag though. Maybe games like Phasmophobia and Forewarned are technically similar in concept and worth exploring for your play scenario. I think there are also player created escape rooms for the likes of NeosVR, VRChat and TraVRsal.

There's a lot more After the Fall coverage but they all seem to have similar developer stock footage and have similar opinions, more or less lenient on issues.

Welp, I impulse bought Oculus Quest 2 today:blobweary: It should arrive on Tuesday so I got time to think because I have absolutely no idea what I am even going to play on it. The only timeworthy games in my library that support VR are Project Wingman and... Double Action:Boogaloo (jk). I wish listed HL: Alyx, Beat Saber, Boneworks, Subnautica, Pistol Whip and I'm keeping my eye out for RE4 on Quest Store... or whatever it is called. I hope that wireless PC streaming to Quest will work well on my network and that laptop with GTX 1060 will be sufficient for satisfactory VR gaming because I would prefer to play PC games instead of native Oculus versions.

Are there any good RPGs or Horrors? I mean I know there are for sure, but hopefully someone can recommend me something I did not see. I remember a game I have seen a year or two ago, it was this rather higher budget action-adventure-rpg in Norse mythology and it was reviewed very favorably. It looked pretty cool but now I can't find it.

I've got a list of great PC VR games with descriptions here (edit, oh, it embeds, neat):
For RPGs there's either the likes of Skyrim VR or indie stuff like Vengeful Rites. For horror, stuff like Lies Beneath, Cosmodread or Phasmophobia. I don't feel like suggesting certain streamer bait horror titles because there are better games in the adventure genre like The Room, Red Matter or Lone Echo (which may have scary moments but clearly aren't horror themed) or great action games like The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners which may have horror themes but aren't scary.

The 1060 may struggle, my 1080 certainly does in the higher end (or less well optimized) games, but there's also my aging CPU to consider. I guess you can find out which games are cross-buy on the Oculus store to buy them and play them natively on the Quest 2, with whatever downgrades, then eventually also play them on PC when you can get better results after upgrades. Otherwise go Steam/buy exclusives only on Quest 2 like RE4 or similar. That's up to you.

The game you're speaking of is probably Asgard's Wrath, I wasn't a fan after it released and preferred decidedly lower budget games like Journey of the Gods.

Regardless you should just take your time at first and go through the Oculus tutorials and then static and/or tech demoy games like The Lab, Superhot VR, Beat Saber, Pistol Whip and similar before trying the full locomotion traditional gameplay titles just in case they give you trouble if you're not used to VR yet (and also so you don't default to teleportation and end up wanting to play everything like that, never getting used to free movement by avoiding it from the start). You'll probably also appreciate such games more than if you get them after more expansive titles and then wonder why anyone ever liked the simpler ones.

That's it! No wonder I could not find it - it's because it's not on Steam! Also many thanks for the recommendations! I added a few more to my wishlist.

I think I will not have issues with locomotion in VR because I played a bit of RE7 and some Exorcist game in the past on my friend's PSVR and I felt fine.

I actually thought about this and this is why I won't try HL: Alyx straight away 😅 I also wanted to have a list of games that I know I am interested in and buy them if they by any chance appear on sale.

Sorry for the double post. I just found out about this referral program for Oculus, where you and the other person get $30 voucher for Oculus Store. Is it still possible to use someone's referral link after buying Oculus 2 but not activating it?

Going by this, you get referred on messenger then you may buy the Quest from anywhere, when you activate with that account you get it. I don't have a Q.

Remember the game I asked about, Derail Valley?
The game is ABSOLUTELY GREAT if you love simulators and trains. Lots of fun, and still in early access.
I'm hooked.

Also has a pancake mode.

It's getting more huge updates (now "simulator", I guess its current "overhauled" was another). I thought it's a new game/sequel and was like oh, poor Arkanius.

The Black Friday sale has started on Oculus Store. There are some real bangers there. I just bought Beat Saber and HL:Alyx on Steam and thought that I would be done, but nope, now I have to spent some more on Oculus Store.
