Great idea. At the end of the day they are really one package.
And WOW. What a package they are. I can't believe people are sitting on the fence about getting lone echo. If you have vr. I truly believe this is the game you've been waiting for.

After my initial session with Lone Echo I started looking around for things I could grab in my room to move around as if I was in zero G. Has anyone brave enough to turn off the assists that stop you from pitching and rolling?

I spent an hour+ just messing around in the lobby area or whatever it is in Echo Arena lol. I don't feel like I have enough room with my current setup to really play it properly since I kept accidentally punching things but I wish I did.

If you're punching things in Echo Arena, don't play Gorn! =P

I must say though, that with all this positive talk, Echo Arena is tempting me to install Oculus' software since it's free for everybody that grabs it in the first 3 months. That's something that even Superhot didn't manage to do for me.

There's no reason not to download Echo Arena for free, even if you have moral reasons for boycotting the store. While I suppose one could claim the increase in users is a benefit to Oculus...not really.

In preparation of Serious Sam First Encounter I started Last Hope, initially I didn't even want to buy that game because "wave shooter n all that" but it came with the bundle during the summer sale. I was only really ever interested in First and Second Encounter.

But now that I've played it a bit I'm actually surprised that I enjoy it, lot's of environments, it's short burst sections, nothing lingers on for too long which is a plus! The enemy onslaught is a bit too much for me on normal difficulty at times tho so I turned it down to easy, might be too easy now but I just want to shoot shit up a bit and move on, I'm not a scorehunter.

From a wave shooter perspective this might be the best yet. Also runs buttery smooth and looks good.

The stationary wave shooter genre was rather tiring back when seemingly every other VR game was of that mold. These days, however, we have a much wider variety of games to chose from. I can totally see a good wave shooter being a nice change of pace for short sessions, and TLH is certainly a great execution of the genre. There's been many updates to TLH since I last played, but even back then it was probably the best of its ilk.

So played the oculus rift for the first time properly today after setting the 3rd sensor up last night (I had tried first contact with 2 sensors ealier in the week as soon as i got the rift from the sale).

First game I tried was robo recall......omg....I am so hyped after playing the first mission.
I set the guardian boundaries at the walls of my room so I ended up punching the wall pretty hard when I got a bit too enthusiastic in trying to punch a robots head off, luckily no damage as it was my hand that touched most of the wall (the controller only had a paint scratch on the ring part of the controller).

I reduced the play space , moving the guardian boundary away form the walls a bit and luckily i still have optimal play space so I wont be punching the wall by mistake again.

The first time the spider bots jumped at me I jumped and yelled and moved back. So it scared me despite not being a horror game. The first time i caught a bullet and threw it back for a headshot on my first try was so fun.

Before this I only had a gear vr which i played alot, but the rift destroys it. It felt like a ps2/xbox to ps4/xbone jump so my mind was still blown. The touch controllers are amazing too.

Really enjoyed superhot vr, was sweating more from superhot than robo recall though which surprised me. really annoying that theres no file save system or profile. Would have liked to be able to go through the campaign seperately from my brothers. So we ended up sharing the progress (i played first 2 chapters and then watched my brothers play the rest which was still fun).

Took it in turns with my younger brothers and it was really fun watching them play too and their reactions.

Still have mage's tale, lone echo + arena (which i had pre-ordered), chronos and raw data to play but right now all i wanna play is robo recall T_T

Oh man. You are missing out. I'm sure you got vr to be taken to the next evolution of gaming. Well this is it my friend. It truly is emersion like you've never experienced. It's science fiction bliss. But you're in it. Everything about it screams polish. Your hardware is going to waste if you don't experience it.

VR games in general are weak in this area. Most are built with the assumption that there's only one user of the headset, and that they'll never desire to return to a previous game state. I mean, for the most part that assumption holds true, but it's certainly a downside for those sharing a VR headset or those who want to replay certain points without doing manual folder/file management.

Oh, i didnt think of that. is it as easy as swapping a single file or folder out to change save progress and is it safe to do so? Will removing the specific file or folder revert the game to a first time playing state?
If so, that's something I'd love to be able to do with superhot.

Newbie. Everything so far has been really, really good. Even the experiences I'd call small or short have been great and my kids have adored (so, all the shorts and movies and videos or short items)

Aside from free stuff, I've bought Elevens, H3, Superhot, Thumper, BlazeRush, and now Lone Echo because it sounds like that's maybe the system seller (after I've bought the system). Today alone, I just spent like 45 minutes rallying with the AI in Elevens and shooting random guns in H3. It's great stuff.

My kids have really liked Farlands and racing in BlazeRush and just looking at things in space like the Steam VR home areas.

My only qualm right now is that nobody IRL has VR, so, chances to talk about it are nonexistent. But, I guess that means I'm the chosen one to show it off to new people.

Generally speaking removing the file / folder in which a game has stored its save profile will revert the game to the default status. Obviously don't remove anything without first backing up what's being removed though. On Steam, you'd also want to disable cloud saves for the game before deleting / moving local save content as it'll want to fight your efforts. I don't think Oculus has a cloud based save mechanism yet, so there shouldn't be any similar hitches there.

But... the game is only 6 hours long. So I feel like I should write it off already as a joke. I'll wait for $5.

LOL. Yeah. So many people worried about the length of it.
It's the best 4 hours I've ever EVER spent (still not completed it). And I know I will replay it at least once but proberbly a hell of a lot more because the fluidity of the experience is like nothing else. The controls, the locomotion, the graphics are all superlative.
Give me 6 hours of this anyday compared to 30 hours of mediocre.

I got it through oculus so no cloud saves here. I found the folder with the save file so will definately use this workaround. Thanks a ton :D

So glad to hear its worth the price. I was a little worried in the morning that I'd pre-ordered it without playing the arena beta and also since the arena portion is free so It's like we're paying a premium for the single player content. I havent refunded it and its installed and ready for me to play when I can resist playing robo recall.

If you think robo recall is good (and it is) then you're in for one hell of a treat with lone echo. It's in a completely different league.

Well, that was disappointing: no inertia, and you canít rotate yourself by grabbing a surface or using hand thrusters on opposite directions. Actually the only thing those assists allow you to do is to manually roll and pitch with the joysticks... which doesnít seem very useful or fun.

Inertia and free roll? Sounds like a recipe for ADR1FT like problems. Would have to bury that option four layers deep behind warning screens. ;)

Edit: More submission bugs fixed. All submitted games should be present now. Also manually updated a few games to have the Steam links. (Anybody can technically do this by altering an existing submission for about an hour to the unlisted store URL. The script will cache the information from the store scrape and it'll persist after the submission is changed back to whatever it was.)

Not a horror game so no jump scares or anything. In terms of interaction Lone Echo has raised the bar.

It's a legit AAA experience for me.

If there's ever a time to play it, now would be time BEFORE Lone Echo.

If you try to play Adrift after Lone Echo, you're just gonna constantly compare the two over and over in Lone Echo's favor.

Adrift is pretty much dead in the water as well. Don't expect a Touch update for it as it would require a major rehaul from the dev end to support Touch. The baked animations as well as having no IK in the game is a serious hurdle for Touch support.

Adrift is extremely repetetive, it completely relies on good graphics and floating through zero gravity and then all you do is fly through the same environments over and over again pressing the same buttons on walls over and over again.
I stopped playing the game halfway through because of that. That's just my opionion of course!

Don't play Adr1ft in VR. It is game from the first line of VR games, when no one knew how to make them properly.

Is it normal for the monitor feed of what the player is seeing to be lower than their view? Is there a way to make it so the monitor is showing 100% of where the playing is looking (atleast vertically)?

Also would be nice to get some audio going to the pc speakers too but i'm aware oculus doesn't have an option for this yet.

Any Vive user should do themselves a favor and try to play Lone Echo and Echo Arena. These two games are game changers for VR in terms of interaction and the locomotion problem.

Try to play Lone Echo without any distractions and good headphones and such. It's just an amazing experience overall.

I am curious though to see how the trigger is handled for ReVive as Lone Echo makes extensive use of the trigger below your middle finger for the Touch controllers.

Yes. That's the short answer. It's by far the best multiplayer VR game that's not a racing game.



"I am curious though to see how the trigger is handled for ReVive as Lone Echo makes extensive use of the trigger below your middle finger for the Touch controllers."

By default, it's mapped to the grip button on the Vive wands, but I use a fork of Revive that swaps the Trigger and the Grip button and it is a dramatic improvement. It's been brought to the Revive developer's attention and I think it'll be made an option within the original project eventually.

Trying it now and I can def see the appeal of switching trigger and grip - might have to look into that.

Also damn. This is great.

Another tip is to install OpenVR Advanced Settings, if you haven't already, and change the grip mode from "Hybrid" (the default) to "Normal." By default, grip is semi-sticky. Meaning if you hold the grip for longer than a half second, it changes into a toggle where you need to let go and press the button again to toggle the grip off. You don't want that *at all* in Echo Arena. You want to grab and let go immediately at all times.

https://github.com/GiantSox/Revive/r...0-TriggerGrip2 -- there's the fork of Revive I use, for anyone interested. Just follow the directions and replace the .dll in the proper location.


Edit: There's just been an official Revive update that allows you to swap the trigger and the grip button, so you don't need to use this fork anymore.
