    Nintendo Labo - What's in the box?

    Thanks. Might have to wait a while then.

    Nintendo Labo - What's in the box?

    So I really want this. I have a pretty advanced 2 and a half year old. My fear is that my Switch would be destroyed. What kind of age could I get away with? Thinking of buying it and keeping it unopened for a year or so. Anyone playing with a child that young...obviously she would not have the patience for the building part.

    You definitely should get to see your character when creating in VR, although never again after that it seems! So that was a bug. In terms of walking speed, I'm using the Move controllers but I find I'm walking WAY TOO FAST...so I guess this could be the same with the DS4. Although I wouldn't describe my speed as Usain Bolt on acid....so who knows if it's the same. That is the biggest immersion breaker for me at the moment though, and it's such a simple thing...walking speed. I'd be very happy if I could adjust that (apart from just going around in sneak mode which makes me lower to the ground). Whether it's something they would ever patch though I don't know. I just want to be able to walk through the world at, you know, walking speed!

    Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    Just picked this up for PSVR yesterday. Not really a sensible thing to do seeing as I'm moving 5000 miles away in a couple of months, plan on selling everything and have a ton of stuff to do. So getting involved with some big expansive game probably isn't a good idea all round. Still, that's the beauty of digital, at least I can re download my games on a new North American PS4 Pro once I settle in (I can can't I???). Anyway, playing with the Moves which took a bit of getting used to, but once I adapted to the fact that you use the left move more like a joystick and less like a pointer then I was racing around all over the place (wish I could walk slower though, might have to crouch through the whole game). As a Rift owner there are always compromises to some extent with PSVR games, but with the quality games then it doesn't matter too much, and some elements work out better. In this case, comfort of the headset and I also never get eye strain from PSVR headset which is something that happens with the Rift. Anyway, loving it so far. I have no idea what I'm really doing, I'm just wandering about taking it all in. Lovely stuff and finding when it's night time it is particularly immersive.

    Setting the distance between your eyes. There is an automated way of doing it using the cameras within the settings, but if you can measure or already know your IPD then setting it manually using this guide will get the best results. Not only does it improve clarity and comfort, if it's done correctly scale will look correct if you have the correct setting. https://www.vrheads.com/how-manually-set-your-ipd-playstation-vr

    All new PSVR uses, make sure you nail your IPD setting correctly, it can make a huge difference to what you see and comfort levels.

    Nintendo Switch

    So I unexpectedly was given a Switch by a very, very good friend yesterday (the Mario bundle). I'm in the process of planning a move to Canada so hadn't the budget for new toys, and therefore hadn't really looked at the Switch much as I didn't want to torture myself. It was the first Nintendon console I hadn't bought at launch since the SNES. And the first flagship Mario game I had missed. Anyway, finding a Switch on my doorstep was quite the amazing gift, and what a beautiful console it is...already falling head over heels in love with Mario. But as I've been out of the loop...what am I missing (I played Zelda on WiiU). I really don't have much money to spend, so looking for demo's or low price stuff that isn't available on other consoles. Not that I need anything apart from Mario right now . But if there are any suggestions then I would love to hear them.

    PlayStation VR

    Having owned a Rift since the beginning (as well as DK1) and having played a TON of the best VR content there is, RE7 on PSVR still stands out as probably my favourite VR game. I REALLY want to play it again but I'm holding out in the hope that VR gets patched into the PC version when exclusivity ends. Still blows my mind that they managed to get it running so well on PS4. Brilliant, brilliant game in VR and I played the whole thing with the hairs standing up on the back of my neck!!!!

    Just picked up The Lost Bear which looks lovely. Apparently it is very short (90 minutes or so) but for £7ish that's right up my alley.

    Oculus Rift (VR Headset)

    Not sure if this has been posted already, but Chroma Lab is all kinds of fucking beautiful and only £3.99: a music visualizer kind of thing , very fluid, incredibly relaxing and the kind of thing I just think is brilliant in VR. http://store.steampowered.com/app/587470/Chroma_Lab/

    New issue of Super Play out now!

    That's incredibly helpful. Thank-you!

    I'd avoid Adrift....it's not great. I would second Pinball FX, also Eleven Table Tennis is worth a look and Vanishing Realms if you are happy to play things through Steam. Other things of note are Big Screen and Rec Room (both free), Bullet Train (short free demo), Echo Arena (free), Budget Cuts Demo, The Lab, Compound Demo (use teleport is full locomotion makes you sick), The Climb, Cyberpong, Lethal VR, Racket NX, Project Cars, Assetto Corsa, DCS Flight SIm (if you have a HOTAS, free up to a point), Space Pirate Trainer and Waltz of the Wizard. I would put all of those somewhere between good and excellent depending on the kind of game you like.

    Stay clear of Mervils, I haven't heard great things about VR Invaders but haven't tried it. Polybius is SUBLIME, Lethal VR is a quick and fun score attack game on Oculus (not sure what the PSVR version is like). Pinball FX is great, especially some of the DLC tables. Pixel Gear is supposedly mediocre and Super Hypercube is very well liked but haven't tried them. Dick Wilde is simple fun and challenging. You need Polybius in your life though.....if you can handle the pace!!!

    The Wave VR is one of the best experiences I've had in VR (and I've tried a LOT). It's essentially a rave in VR, although only generally has lots of people at special events. Outside of this you can just open it anyway, mess around with music and a lightshow, but then there was some kind of arena you could enter which had an amazing show going on. There were a couple of other people there and you can exchange these orb things which then sends you on a crazy trip together. Collaborating on the dance floor....it's immense. I totally got lost in it and then it was a real shock coming back to the real world. Everyone is an abstract character (I was a lion)...it's like being inside Jeff Minter. In fact that could be the movie title, 'Being Jeff Minter' .It's only available for US steam users due to copyright issues on the music, but I got round this by clicking the green 'free' button on this link: https://steamdb.info/app/453000/graphs/. Video of someone doing a VJ/DJ set here. Flick through it a bit and you will get the idea. Outside of gaming, this is EXACTLY the kind of thing I want from VR. Being transported to an abstract yet wonderful playground. And it's free.

    And yes, getting that extra sensor is super handy as really for the best experience you do want the 3 sensor set-up. You may need a USB extender though, when you buy the sensors seperately they come with one (as they expect the third sensor will be furthest away from the PC), but I think the one that comes with the Touch controllers is just the standard length. Anyway, with three sensors the tracking is fantastic. Welcome aboard.
