Welcome to the Furious Angels website! This community is devoted to promoting online gameplay with fellow virtual reality gamers. Not only do we provide a place for VR gamers to find others to game with, but we also provide feedback to Oculus and other game developers on what works and doesn't work in this new and uncharted platform that is VR! Please feel free to take a look around, and we hope you'll consider joining our community!

JOINING A COMMUNITY

Virtual reality, by its nature, tends to make people want to share the experience. It's so unique and so real that it really does feel like you are somewhere else. Being in a virtual world that is cut off from everyone can get lonely - you don't even have access to your phone or IM, things you are used to always checking. By joining a community of other VR gamers, you can share your virtual experiences with an online community. Make virtual friends who will give you a good reason to never play "Alone in VR" again! Know where the community is - which servers, which games!

TEAMWORK AND COMMUNICATION

One of the handicaps to gaming in a virtual universe is the difficulty in communication. Typing can by tedious. The easiest solution is voice communications. We have our own Discord server dedicated to our community. You can easily accomplish complex goals or give and take orders with our voice comms. No more peeking out from under your headset to find your keyboard!

NEWS AND INFORMATION

Are you addicted to surfing r/Oculus? Do you find you spend more time looking at VR articles than actually gaming in the headset? Stay up-to-date here as an active community keeps track of what's relevant and what's not! Know about the hottest demos and the best tweaks! Here you can get the support you need while helping others!

VR INTEGRATION

We're taking the first steps towards integrating VR applications into the every day functionality of the guild. Besides using Oculus' own social features, we're always looking at the newest social applications. VRChat, JanusVR, AltSpace, RiftMax...the list will continue to grow!

SHAPE THE FUTURE OF ONLINE VR

Let's be honest - VR is an infant. There is a LOT to learn. We are getting in on the ground floor. By becoming a full member of the Furious Angels, you will get priority on exclusive Betas for online VR games. We plan on working closely with game developers as well as the Oculus devs to provide feedback on what works and doesn't work in VR. Our area of expertise will be online interaction, team building features, ease of use, and other categories that relate to guild-like functioning in online VR. If you've always wanted to help influence the standards of online gaming, now is your chance!

Lack of content won't be an issue when Oculus Touch releases next week. In a blog post posted today, Oculus reveals all 53 of the games/experiences that will be available at launch! On top of that, many of these games are being packaged for free with Touch (Dead and Buried, Medium, First Contact, Quill, Toybox, The Unspoken, and VR Sports Challenge).

Oculus also pointed out that some big name games would be coming soon in 2017 - we are particularly excited for Robo Recall and Lone Echo!

If for whatever reason you still haven't preordered, Best Buy still has Touch available and will have it delivered to you by early next week!

Oculus Touch customers are reporting receiving emails that their order is shipping soon. Some have even received a tracking number that gives their package a December 6th delivery (the official release day).

Up until now it was assumed that orders from the Oculus website probably would not start shipping until the 6th. Meanwhile Amazon and Best Buy orders have been giving a December 6th delivery date for a few weeks now. News that Oculus will also be shipping early puts everyone receiving their order at generally the same time. The big caveat with the Oculus website orders is that so far only those with an early priority slot (those that preordered the Rift in the first few minutes) or those who live in countries with few orders have received the delivery emails. It's still not clear how many preorders Oculus plans to try and deliver ON the release day (or even ship), but they have stated that it won't be everyone!

Preorders for the Oculus Touch that were made on the Oculus site have begun processing. Those who ordered from the site are receiving emails letting them know about the order processing. So far only a few have gotten the emails - some of the "priority status" orders (those connected to Rift preorders). This would imply we're once again in store for an F5 refresh of emails, spreadsheets talking about minutes, and everything else you loved to hate about the Rift preorders - albeit hopefully condensed into just a few weeks.

If you preordered from Amazon or Best Buy, however, you should expect to receive your Touch on December 6th. If you try to preorder NOW, however, expect to wait until at least January!

There were three main ways to preorder the Oculus Touch - Oculus' website, Amazon, and Best Buy. If you are crazy like me, you ordered from all three in hopes of determining which one would get it to you the fastest! For the longest time Amazon did not have a shipping date, stating they needed more info first. Other Amazon orders, however, did have a December 8th delivery. Today, however, Amazon orders began updating to reflect a release day December 6th delivery!

Meanwhile Oculus orders still just give a window from December 6th - 15th. Best Buy claims they have both in-store pickup and delivery for the 6th, though there's currently nothing that guarantees that date. It appears Amazon will be the first to arrive - or at least tie with Best Buy. Congrats Amazon - I've cancelled my Oculus and Best Buy preorders!

Update 1.10 begins to pave the way for Touch launch on December 6th. Asynchronous Space Warp is now automatically enabled, so anyone with a compatible video card will start reaping the benefits immediately!

You can also now preview the Oculus Avatar editor if you know where to look. Simply navigate to this file on your hard drive:

Oculus\Support\oculus-avatar-editor\OVRAvatarEditor.exe

From there you can get a sneak peek of the Avatar system. Of course the hands won't work until you actually get your Touch controllers!
